October 16, 2008- Munson Healthcare licensed the Lawson Human Resource Management Suite and Lawson Business Intelligence, part of the Lawson S3 Enterprise Performance Management Suite.


The health care provider will use the Lawson system to consolidate administrative processes and support its integrated human resources and payroll services. The contract was signed during Lawson's first quarter of fiscal 2009, which ended August 31, 2008.

Munson Healthcare has a medical staff approaching 500 and is affiliated with eight hospitals in northern Michigan, including Munson Medical Center in Traverse City and Paul Oliver Memorial Hospital in Frankfort. The regional health system also consists of an air and ground medical transport service and a home health agency. It serves the nearly 600,000 residents of Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula and the eastern portion of Michigan's Upper Peninsula.

Munson Healthcare chose Lawson to support an organization-wide initiative to simplify and modernize its human resources (HR) processes. The health care provider also wanted an HR system that would support its evolving technology and business needs.

"Lawson's easy-to-use employee and manager self-service tools were a key factor in our decision," said Sue Peters, vice president of Human Resources for Munson Healthcare. "Lawson will help us streamline workforce management processes, including making it easier for existing staff to manage their benefits online."
