Florham Park, NJ (PRWEB) November 20, 2012 — Unicorn HRO, an industry leader in benefits, payroll and HR solutions, today announced its client service and operations were never impacted during Hurricane Sandy and her aftermath.
Unicorn HRO’s cloud-based application was fully functional and operational throughout the time period where most New Jersey businesses suffered outages.
“While the damage to our state and neighboring states was devastating, we were pleased with our ability to continue servicing clients through a disaster,” said Tim Diassi, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Unicorn HRO.
“In fact, we never had to access our disaster recovery site in the process.”
“When we think about hurricanes its usually only of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida coasts,” said Jolee Moorer Payroll Manager, Hood Industries, Meridian, Mississippi.
“However Sandy was different and I must admit that I was a little concerned since the main hosting site is in New Jersey.
“Mondays are my big hourly payroll day and I cannot tolerate interruption in service.
“My data and connection were uninterrupted and we ran just as smoothly as ever.
“The team at Unicorn HRO is not just a payroll and HR provider, they are family.
“I was able to text and make sure the team was safe. “
During the storm and the days that followed, Unicorn HRO’s clients’ maintained service and not one client missed a payroll.
The company’s cloud-based iCON solution gives businesses the power and integration of a state-of-the-art application suite without the need for software updates, additional IT support or concerns about disaster data recovery.
