Equifax Workforce Solutions has consistently provided thousands of clients, including three fourths of the FORTUNE 500, with HR solutions that automate processes, improve accuracy and compliance, reduce costs and enhance and streamline practices since it was founded in 1973. Always an industry leader, the company's solutions are rapidly evolving to enable employers to securely leverage their own workforce data, along with real-time industry benchmarking data and extensive stores of Equifax proprietary aggregate data.

"It's difficult for employers to make effective business decisions when they base their strategies on information that's incomplete, outdated or difficult to understand. As a result they can miss the boat on opportunities or don't recognize that their organizations are at risk," commented Dann Adams, president of Equifax Workforce Solutions. "Drawing on resources that are exclusive to Equifax, we're committed to delivering the Hiring, Pay Reporting, Compliance and Workforce Analytics solutions, employers need to better understand their workforces, gain market insight, improve compliance, and support decisions that will help them maintain a competitive edge."

Providing clients with predictive and actionable insight to HR processes across the enterprise, Equifax also recently launched a series of new solutions, including enhanced Hiring and Compliance services powered by distinctive Equifax data assets and customer-centric technology.

"Employers need access to reliable insight and solutions that enable them to attract, manage and retain talent in an increasingly competitive market," noted Anir Pradhan, senior marketing officer for Equifax Workforce Solutions. "Our solutions enable employers to easily interact with up-to-date, factual information, and provide the clarity and insight that supports truly informed business and workforce strategies."

Equifax Workforce Solutions recently announced their plans to enhance their customer-centric Workforce Analytics platform with the launch of innovative benchmarking capabilities in early 2013. More than 200 million employee records form the foundation of this unique benchmark repository that will deliver valuable insights around turnover, compensation and workforce planning. The ability to interact with real-time benchmarks based on factual data will empower employers to reduce undesirable turnover, retain top performers, and develop effective hiring strategies.

Equifax Workforce Solutions experts will be available to share details on the company's new brand and recently released HR services during the HR Technology Conference & Exposition, held in Chicago from October 8 – 10, 2012. Conference attendees are encouraged to visit Booth No. 225 to learn more.

An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...
