Case Study: BOOMI | SOFTWARE In the fall of 2015, Dell Boomi was a rapidly growing company with close to 150 employees. As its business quickly expanded during the next three years, Boomi's global workforce surged to nearly 700 employees — far outstripping the processes and tools Boomi had created when it was a much smaller organization. Hiring and supervisory managers at Boomi faced a laborious manual workload to bring on new employees. Emails, spreadsheets and data entry tasks consumed valuable time, hurting productivity among administrators and employees. "We were growing so fast we'd have 10 or 20 new hires a week. Once we even had 30 new hires in a single day!" says D.J. Krebsbach, Boomi's chief of staff. "I was working late Friday nights and coming in Sundays to set up laptops, network access and applications. It wasn't sustainable." Beyond the crippling administrative overhead, the onboarding processes were hurting corporate culture. A Boomi survey of employees in 2018 found that 74 percent of them didn't have a provisioned laptop on Day One of their Boomi careers. Moreover, it took an average of 92 days before new hires had access to key applications and information. A New Way to Onboard All that has changed since Boomi turned to its own Onboarding Solution Accelerator to streamline and automate its onboarding processes.
