Motorola employs approximately 97,000 employees worldwide. In an organization of this size, an in-depth understanding of headcount and other key human resources indicators is critical to the bottom line.

"By moving from regionalized reporting to an integrated Brio Intelligence solution, Motorola saves money and time as reports built in one region or sector are now leveraged throughout the entire company," states Paul Killick, business analyst, HRIS, Motorola. "The real benefit is the value of the information as it is used to make informed decisions throughout the organization."

Over 1,200 employees all over the world from a broad cross section of HR functional areas such as finance, staffing, recruiting and training, use the 750 reports and templates contained in the Brio solution.

Complete with charts indicating weekly headcount totals and quarterly trend data, recipients track headcount from sector summary to regions, divisions and locations. Another key report published in the SPS is the monthly Business Metrics Report. This critical report monitors performance against key HR operating metrics. All reports are customized with a few mouse clicks and provide summary level information, allow decision-makers to drill into detail as needed.
