ADP said it has successfully implemented a centralized time and labor management solution at Ohio-based automotive supplier Dana Holding.

The US provider of administration systems and software said its product will help Dana standardize workforce management practices for 4,500 employees across 23 different locations.

Mark Valerius, vice president HR at Dana said the ADP system provides standardized automated HR processes but also allows for specific rules for certain locations. "We now have a more effective central reporting repository," he said in a press release.

ADP said its labor management system will also allow Dana to more easily analyze data and make changes.

An ADP-sponsored study by PriceWaterhouseCoopers found that outsourcing multiple HR functions to a single vendor can reduce an organization's costs by 24 percent on average.

The study also revealed that outsourcing, and not simply moving to SaaS (Software as a Service) produces greater efficiencies and cost savings in the HR function.

Dana makes driveline products, power technologies, and genuine service parts for light- and heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers.
