Texas Star Joins APS National Client Group
Shreveport, LA – December 17, 2012 - Automatic Payroll Systems, Inc. (APS) is pleased to announce the addition of Texas Star and its affiliated businesses to the APS national client group. Texas Star launched APS’s cloud-based payroll, human resources and time & attendance solution in late July.
Texas Star Human Resources Administrator Sophia Flores said the transition to APS has already helped her company better manage payroll-related costs and has resulted in significant direct and operational savings. “The cost was constantly rising with our previous payroll system; we didn’t have all the features we wanted, and we had to log in twice every time we wanted to use it,” said Flores. “With APS, payroll, time-keeping and human resource features are all in one system with one login.”
She said the APS system is also “feature-rich.” “We thought the biggest companies would have the best features, but that is not the case,” said Flores. “For example, with our previous provider, if I had to set up a report, I had to call every time because it was so complicated. With APS, I have been able to log on and create reports on my own with ease.”
Texas Star was created in the Corpus Christi area as a fuel and lubricants wholesaler in 1933. In the 1970’s, it began to offer more services to its customers, including convenience stores and self-serve gasoline throughout the south and central areas of Texas. Today, Texas Star operates 18 convenience stores, seven Subway restaurants, and a check-cashing location.
The company has locations in 11 cities across Texas. The group also operates DIFCO, Inc., a full-service fuel and lubricants supplier to wholesale and retail customers throughout Texas. The combined payroll managed by a centralized Human Resources Department at Texas Star includes more than 300 employees.
APS President Aaron Johnson said the expansive growth Texas Star and its affiliate companies have experienced make the transition to a flexible, cloud-based SaaS solution even more critical. “We’re pleased to have the opportunity to provide business management tools to this dynamic company that will allow them more time and resources to maintain a continued path of growth and success,” said Johnson.
