Why Buy Sod Inc. Chose Paycor

In 2002, three family businesses came together to create a network of sod farms that operate and distribute around the country. But with ten locations and eighteen different payrolls to process, Buy Sod Inc. struggled to manage all their employees on one solution. They needed a more robust solution to handle all their unique needs.

Prior to Paycor

Buy Sod Inc. employs a large remote workforce in different states. Without mobile access to paystubs, employees relied on HR to answer their questions. As a result, administrators were bogged down with answering the same questions.

And because they operated in multiple states, Buy Sod Inc. struggled to calculate payroll taxes on their own. Without access to tax experts, HR administrators spent multiple hours every pay period reviewing payruns to ensure compliance

Challenges

  • Lacked employee self-service
  • Manual payroll processing
  • Manual onboarding
  • ACA reporting
  • Lacked access to tax experts
  • Recruiting talent
