Administrative Service Offering (ASO)

Administrative Service Offering (ASO) Package for Businesses

What is an Administrative Service Offering?

An Administrative Service Offering, also known as an ASO, is a specialized third-party service that provides a range of business insurance, employee benefits, payroll, human capital management (HCM), and human resources (HR) services to businesses.

What are the Benefits of an ASO?

ASOs create strategic partnerships, assisting organizations with:

  • Streamlining employee benefits administration
  • Managing business insurance coverage
  • Handling critical HR functions, including talent acquisition, recruiting, onboarding and offboarding, employee engagement, and more
  • Processing payroll
  • Handling risk and compliance issues

An ASO partner essentially becomes an extension of an organization’s HR department. They provide an array of services tailored to each client’s specific needs.

What’s Included in GTM’s ASO Packages?

GTM offers an ASO with customizable business insurance coverage and employee benefit plans, a cloud-based human capital management (HCM) and payroll solution, and expert human resources outsourcing.

It’s transforming the way our clients do business.

Small and mid-sized businesses can create operational efficiencies, cut costs, and reduce their risks when they outsource employee benefits administration, payroll, HCM, and HR to GTM.

For larger organizations, an HR professional works with them to provide proactive solutions, including employee benefits design and administration, through integration with our state-of-the-art HCM platform that also delivers payroll management.

All packages include access to business insurance coverage, including workers’ compensation with pay-as-you-go, commercial property, business owner policies (BOP), employee practice liability insurance (EPLI), cyber insurance, and more.

Why Outsource Your Benefits, Payroll, HCM, and HR?

Failure to properly manage functions related to your employee’s experience (payroll, benefits, workplace culture, etc.) can lead to increased employee turnover, headache-filled paper trails of inaccurate reporting, and non-compliance notices from state and federal governments.

Outsourcing employee benefits, payroll, HCM, and HR to a professional service provider can reduce costs, create efficiencies, and boost productivity, which means a healthier bottom line for your organization.

By streamlining administrative tasks, moving processes online, and eliminating paperwork, you can free up key personnel to focus on core business functions and strategic organizational needs and goals. You’ll help ensure accuracy and compliance with labor laws, reducing the risk of costly errors and penalties. And you’ll create a better employee experience to attract top talent, retain your top employees, and slash employee turnover

Smaller businesses often have fewer resources than larger organizations, potentially making it even more efficient to outsource certain payroll, HR, and HCM functions rather than keeping them in-house.

Why Collaborate With GTM as Your ASO Partner?

Based in the Capital Region for more than 30 years, GTM combines the latest in HCM technology, expert HR consulting, and customized business insurance and employee benefits with exceptional local support and training.

Clients work with a dedicated account manager who gets to know them and their business. Account managers are available directly by phone and email, eliminating general support email boxes and phone trees with long wait times.
