Dianna Sheppard Joins Cognet Team

We strive to ensure that our team can truly offer the “best of both worlds”, which means we stick to our focused support of the HR Services industry with people who have deep subject matter expertise from and in your space, and on a global scale.

Dianna Sheppard is one of those gurus who invested years in the HR Services space, from building Ceridian into one of the largest human resource providers in the world, to CEO and President of Advantec. We won’t get into defining years here, but suffice it to say she knows her stuff and is ready to help you build a better business.

Dianna brings 28 years of just that to Cognet, with her extensive leadership in the executive suite and her passion for hands-on problem solving, in several capacities she is a great investor for the stage of our company today.

In fact, she liked our service so much she is doing a Victor Kiam impression and “bought” the company, well at least part of it.

At Ceridian, Dianna filled critical roles in sales and operational leadership roles, including payroll, benefits administration, EAP, time and attendance and tax filing. At Advantec she brought an expanded product suite, new technology, black belt process and operational excellence to support the planned sale of the company.

We have and continue to build a team that has experience in your industry, and in the global economy. It’s the double threat! You get executives in your space who know how to help you construct a global operations platform to let you focus on sales, service and high value added activities.

Our partners have eons of HRO/PEO/ASO and all kinds of acronyms under our belt, and not just in your market, but all over the globe. We want to share that with our select clients who wish to build a better business model and pick our brains, and most importantly learn from our experience.

We are able to support all facets of your HR business or agency, from operations to finance and technology, and have the people in our ownership group and team to get you global without leaving your desk.

Thanks for joining us Dianna!

90-Day Free Success Story

We recently began offering a “90-Day Free Trial” of our services, much to the disagreement of our marketing folks in using the word “free”.  They really dislike that word, but in the end we ask them to stick to the pretty while we do the gritty.

We gained a new client in the process and want to share the story with you.  The client, who of course signed an NDA in blood, is happy and we have already signed an additional Statement of Work for another process.

“We were blown away by the attention to detail and the process of Business Process Outsourcing.” said the Chief Financial Officer.  “I really thought we had our stuff together, but when I experienced first-hand the level of detail put into documenting our processes in writing and setting baseline financial and operational metrics I was impressed.”

Cognet HRO will run you through the same wringer as all of our clients and let you be the judge.  “We are an ISO grounded organization, and hopefully we add a new level of accountability and authority to your company during the trial transition process alone, never mind full production.” said Cognet’s Chief Executive Officer Saleem Yusuff.  “We apply the same discipline and focus to our trial clients because we want them to be multi-tier clients later.  We truly feel that it is inherently the right thing to do in allowing them to experience Cognet while they buy.  Let us in and experience what it can be and we guarantee you will not only partner with Cognet, you will expand your original way of thinking into our other product sets.” said Yusuff.

Contact us to talk about our offer and what it can do for your company.  We realize how sensitive and difficult it can be to go global, and have been on both sides of that fence, so allow us to show you in a small way what a big deal it can be and you decide.

Be sure to visit Us  where you’ll have a chance to access our global team on a 90-Day Risk-Free, No Obligation Free Trial. We are so confident in our ability to impact to your bottom line that we want you to experience how an offshore operation can make your organization more efficient first hand. We allow you to focus on applying those new found sales techniques and retaining your customers, not spreadsheets and non-value added activities.

Can’t wait? Click here to complete our information request and you could be playing golf on Wednesday morning with our Chairman, who really isn’t that good but loves to talk about how we can save you money, improve process and guarantee it too.

We hope to see you in Albuquerque!

90 days to Nirvana – No kidding!

Who would want a smart, innovative and willing resource at no charge for 90 days? Well, um, YOU!

We recently added a client by investing in their internal planning and decision making process. During the sales process we simply let them know they can have a resource from Cognet to perform market research, cross reference lead and client lists, put together a five-year strategic financial budget and Power Point presentation at no charge. It worked!

We only want clients who “get it” and use our relationship as a means of growing their company in search of operational excellence, and that isn’t for everyone. If you are truly interested in outsourcing on a global scale, let us help you by providing the resource to do the leg work and get you to a decision, either way.

We are so confident of our Cognitive and Collaborative models to manage your processes that we are offering a 90-Day Free Trial to access our global team. We want you to experience how an offshore operation can make you more efficient and allow you to focus more on sales and customers, not spreadsheets. Instead of taking that flash drive home with you send us an email and voila, it will be in your Inbox by morning and you can focus on your future.

Click here to complete our process assessment of your problem du jour, along with what you want to accomplish. Remember, we provide the HR Services industry with solutions to BPO, F&A and IT problems, so please avoid asking us to answer customer service calls or anything like that.

We will review your input and one of our ISO team will provide you the path to freedom. If chosen, we will show you how we Inspire, Innovate and Implement during those 90 days for free and hope we have the opportunity to show you what we can do for your business to be more competitive.

If you are attending the IPPA conference in August and are interested in this offer, please visit our Web site for more details. There will be a way to win an extension of this offer, but you will have to bring your “A” game. Stay tuned!
