Topia Announces a Partnership with BCD Travel to Automate Business Travel and Distributed Workforce Compliance

Topia | September 09, 2020

Topia announced a partnership with BCD Travel, one of the world's largest corporate travel management companies, to automate business travel and distributed workforce compliance (tax, payroll, and immigration). Through this partnership, Topia adds value to BCD's clients by pulling their travel booking data into its Topia Compass offering. Topia Compass then calculates tax exposures, multi-jurisdiction payroll withholdings, and immigration requirements while supporting the Posted Workers Directive and other compliance matters. The BCD-Topia partnership strengthens Topia One, Topia's new, end-to-end Global Talent Mobility platform while furthering its mission to break down barriers between people and places and enable work everywhere. Enterprises with mobile employees often struggle to determine where they have compliance exposures and when such exposures are triggered. Domestic and international business trips, assignments, and relocations affect where the organization is responsible for payroll withholding and where it has permanent establishments. HR and accounting departments that fail to keep track of these mobile employees and the resulting compliance obligations risk having to pay hefty penalties. However, manual efforts to monitor movement and calculate taxes tend to be expensive and inaccurate.

YOOBIC Partners With Legion to Elevate Frontline Employee Performance and Experience

YOOBIC | July 14, 2022

Today YOOBIC, the all-in-one digital workplace for frontline teams, announced a new strategic partnership with Legion Technologies, a pioneer in AI-powered workforce management (WFM), to provide the most comprehensive solution available to employers with large hourly-paid workforces. The combined power of these platforms will allow more visibility, transparency, and operational efficiency for frontline teams. Hourly workforce operations are in dire need of transformation. With two-thirds of frontline workers (60%) describing their job as understaffed, and three-quarters (72%) feeling unduly worn out after work, workload management is a critical capability for today's retailers, food service operators, and other businesses. Additionally, Legion's recent State of the Hourly Workforce Report uncovered that hourly workers had an Employee Net Promoter Score of -7, indicating a deep dissatisfaction amongst this group. To boost morale and retain their best employees, businesses need to bring workloads in sync with workforce capacity. Together, Legion and YOOBIC will enable these businesses to increase employee engagement through superior task management, communication, and efficiency. These solutions will complement each other to modernize the frontline experience. Legion is recognized as a pioneer in AI-powered workforce management (WFM), with a powerful platform that helps businesses ranging from retailers and restaurants to logistics and manufacturing to optimize labor efficiency and enhance the employee experience simultaneously. With advanced AI-driven demand-forecasting and labor-budgeting, the Legion WFM platform enables organizations to optimize labor efficiency and increase sales by assigning their best workers to the shifts and situations where they are most needed. The platform also drives employee satisfaction with greater scheduling flexibility and control, modern communication tools and self-service capabilities, instant access to wage and performance information and rewards designed specifically for the needs of hourly employees and their managers. Through the new partnership, the Legion WFM platform will dovetail seamlessly with YOOBIC's game-changing mobile-optimized digital workplace tools to deliver across-the-board benefits for top retail and food service organizations as they streamline operations and engage their workforces. Together, YOOBIC and Legion will further supercharge frontline teams with capabilities that provide more efficient task management, improved labor optimization, and enhanced empowerment for hourly-paid employees. "For frontline teams, YOOBIC's powerful digital workplace platform and Legion's AI-based WFM platform really are a match made in heaven, Now, employers can automatically create optimized schedules that match business needs with employee preferences — while simultaneously empowering their frontline teams to work smarter and deliver more value along the way." -Sanish Mondkar, CEO and founder Legion. Legion has built an amazing WFM solution, and this strategic partnership will add enormous value for YOOBIC's retail and food service customers, said Fabrice Haiat, YOOBIC's CEO. By bringing together these two solutions, we're building something that's greater than the sum of its parts — a true end-to-end solution that simultaneously optimizes workforce management, boosts efficiency and engagement, and dramatically improves the employee experience.
