Customer Support

When outsourcing with CPEhr, you will have a specialist available to help with any problems, challenges or questions that occur in these areas of HR. You can set up one-on-one consulting sessions with your specialist to help you meet your unique needs.

In terms of customer support, CPEhr is available by phone and email. The company also offers a variety of online resources on outsourcing HR and other HR-related topics.

These materials guide you through some of human resources' more complicated issues, like immigration employment and insurance compliance.

One thing this service does not offer is any type of mobile app for you or your employees. Mobile apps allow your employees to quickly and easily access important pay and benefit information, even while they are away from the office. However, there is an online portal that you or your employees can access from the CPEhr website, which provides this information.

Despite the lack of this option, CPEhr has a variety of services and features to help you focus on the needs of your employees instead of a mountain of HR tasks.
