"After many years of conducting our own employee administration functions in-house, we quickly recognized that BCN's program could be beneficial to us. BCN provides us with a very user-friendly web site that I can enter payroll data and research previous payroll information. The web is also available to our employees to access their payroll records, benefit information and links to providers. This technology has proven to be a very useful tool for management and our employees.

-- Convenience Stores, 56 Locations, 800 Employees

"Our partnership with BCN began in 2001 and continues today. Periodically I evaluate other PEOs to ensure that we are receiving the best administrative support at a fair price and have determined that our relationship with BCN is the best choice for our company.

Our company continues to grow and we count on BCN Services to meet our changing needs. Besides payroll and human resources help, BCN provides safety and workers' compensation programs that have been invaluable to our company.

A recent example of the effectiveness of working with BCN Services is the containment of our workers' compensation experience modification. Our client base is expanding and we are quoting much larger jobs with very large clients. These clients typically only let the jobs to highly qualified suppliers. Our safety track record is a major factor for us to secure these large projects. BCN Services has provided the tools necessary for our company to remain a highly rated supplier."
