Growing telecom company makes payroll for new public works projects a breeze using Points North

Motive Infrastructure Solutions (MIS), a self-performing EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) solutions provider for the wireless and wireline telecommunications industries, was in acquisition mode during 2020, which meant more than doubling its workforce from 275 to 600 employees. At the same time, the Fountain Valley, California-based company faced a payroll processing twist that called for quick, effective action.

One of their acquired companies, comprised of approximately 75% public works projects, is required to pay prevailing wages to workers assigned to those projects per the Davis-Bacon Act of 1931. A prevailing wage is a government-mandated hourly wage, usually benefits and overtime paid to most workers, laborers and mechanics on a public project within a specific geographical area. Noncompliance can be costly due to owing back wages and Department of Labor fines. Additionally, violators may be barred from future government contracts for up to three years.

"{Points North} has been a perfect solution. With Points North everything could be customized to my needs.">Elise Wright, Prevailing wage specialist

As an ADP Workforce Now® client, MIS looked at solutions within ADP Marketplace, a digital HR storefront of apps that integrate with ADP®, to help solve its challenge. At the same time, they hired Elise Wright, a top prevailing wage payroll expert who brought with her 20 years of experience.

To choose a software solution, Wright reviewed two primary candidates. After a quick review she selected Points North Certified Payroll Reporting. By using Points North, which integrates smoothly with ADP's payroll system, Motive ensured that its government-mandated prevailing wage data is reported accurately and in a timely manner. Among other things, Points North conveniently emails certified reports to anyone who needs them- federal, state, or municipal clients, contractors and more. It can also create an email distribution list for each project, accommodate different recipients for various reports within projects, and allow client to attach multiple reports to a single email.

"So far, this has been a perfect solution. With Points North everything could be customized to my needs, and if something wasn't available, they made it happen," she says. "I am not a computer-savvy person but using the system could not be any easier. It is really simple but there are times I need help, and the Points North team is readily available to walk me through it until I get it."
