ST. LOUIS, July 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Equifax Workforce Solutions, a global provider of human resource, data and analytics services, today announced that more than 1,000 clients are benefitting from CaseBuilder™, its innovative unemployment cost management solution designed to streamline the unemployment claims process and promote compliance and unemployment data integrity. Equifax Workforce Solutions welcomed Groupon as the 1000th client to adopt this industry-leading platform.

Modeled to align with the U.S. Department of Labor's State Information Data Exchange System (SIDES) – which facilitates the electronic exchange of Unemployment Insurance (UI) information between state agencies and employers – CaseBuilder delivers significant savings in time, effort and financial resources through its intuitive user interface and reduces the administrative burden of unemployment cost management.

"The CaseBuilder portal simplifies what can be a very complex and time-consuming process," said David Sloane, senior manager, HR Operations, North America for Groupon. "In the end, it allows our HR team to focus more time supporting and developing our current employees rather than on the challenges associated with unemployment claims compliance."

Equifax Workforce Solutions has seen immediate and sustained demand for CaseBuilder since its launch in September 2012. Delivered through a single, user-friendly dashboard, CaseBuilder provides the transparency needed for document management efficiency, while helping employers to ensure compliance with all state and federal regulations regarding unemployment claims documentation and filing procedures. The solution was developed to enhance the way employers handle unemployment cost management by automatically collecting and organizing relevant claims information and alerting employers of any areas that require attention.

"Equifax Workforce Solutions is dedicated to developing cutting-edge innovations that not only enhance the user experience, but also help our clients meet compliance with even the most complex and often evolving legislation," said Equifax senior vice president of Marketing, Anir Pradhan. "We are proud to meet the growing and clear demand for unemployment cost management solutions that help optimize processes, produce bottom line results and ensure data integrity, and are excited to welcome Groupon to our growing roster of CaseBuilder clients."
