Freedom Valu Switches to PeopleMatter HR Platform


CHARLESTON, S.C. -- PeopleMatter, a human resource management solutions company, announced today that Freedom Valu Centers is moving from a hiring app point solution to an all-inclusive platform to streamline its human resources practices.

"Having clients move from a point solution to the PeopleMatter Platform is always a validation of our product," said Nate DaPore, president and CEO of PeopleMatter. "It is wonderful to see new clients like Freedom Valu Centers embrace our easy-to-use tools that meet their needs and grow with the company."

According to the company, PeopleMatter provides Freedom Valu with a flexible HR Platform that offers hiring, training and scheduling all from one online portal designed specifically for the service industry and hourly workforce.

The system's capabilities include:

  • PeopleMatter HIRE, which streamlines employee pre-screening and background checks, and provides a Web-based application that allows candidates to apply for jobs 24/7 at multiple locations.
  • PeopleMatter LEARN, which enables the retailer to upload employee materials and tests that provide enhanced training to improve customer service quality.
  • PeopleMatter SCHEDULE, which is used to create accurate weekly schedules and automatic updates through the Web interface and the PeopleMatter mobile application.

"We have been very impressed with the speed and accuracy of moving our information into the system. The transition has been good from the beginning to deployment," said Rick Cagle, vice president and director of operations for Erickson Oil Products/Freedom Valu Centers. "Traditionally, implementations are laborious," he added. "But turning on PeopleMatter and using the system has been easy and flawless."

Freedom Valu Centers, a wholly owned subsidiary of Erickson Oil Products, has more than 550 employees at 67 c-store locations in Minnesota, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Michigan.
