MRO & Associates reduces working time with 10-minute onboarding process using Grove HR

MRO & Associates is a multi-disciplinary chartered accountant firm that offers a gamut of services to Indian businesses. The firm has been faced with different HR challenges due to manual documentation, data storage and tracking leading to slowed-down operations. Using Grove HR, its HR processes are made easier and faster than ever.

Founded in 2019, MRO & Associates offers exceptional services in the financial sector. Inspired by its mission to empower clients, it proposes solutions to help them achieve enviable growth. After over 2-year operations, the company has 25 employees and continues to grow its workforce further in Pune, India. 

In the early days, like most companies, MRO & Associates ran HR processes manually with Excel and Google Sheets. However, manual HR comes with inevitable challenges and MRO & Associates is no exception.

Akshay Malpani - Managing Partner of MRO & Associates shared that recording attendance, time-off, employee data became overwhelming and inefficient which slowed down the operations. Unable to find a solution in their local area, Akshay and his team chose Grove HR to boost their HR operations.

Save loads of time with 10-minute onboarding process

The onboarding process for MRO & Associates was stressful in the past with difficulty in centralizing all data in one place. Recording new hires’ information was done manually through email and Google form. 

Akshay explains:

Now we have all these automated because of Grove HR and it is all based in one single location.

With Grove HR, the major challenges faced by the MRO & Associates HR team were solved. They can now complete the onboarding process within 10 minutes which used to take 1-3 days due to many locations. So, Grove HR has been of great assistance in saving a lot of time.

Boost efficiency in employee data management

Before using Grove HR, they engaged  Google Sheets to store and track employee’s data. However,  it was proved not to be the ideal option for data management since data is not always available for everyone.

Grove HR employee self-service is utilized to allow employees to input their own data which successfully helps solve these challenges. 

Get things done anywhere with Grove HR mobile app

Akshay expounds: "We can do most of the things through a mobile app"

As all employees in MRO & Associates are using the mobile app for clocking in/out, the HR team can now easily track their working hours and prevent time attendance fraud.
