Stonebridge Develops Intranet for Chick-fil-A

Stonebridge Technologies Inc. Monday put the finishing touches on an enterprise-wide intranet to help payroll/human relations operations for more than 850 stores of the Chick-fil-A fast food chain.

For the first time ever, users will have direct access to corporate HR and payroll functions, which the chain hopes will slash costly, time-consuming paperwork and improve record-keeping accuracy.

The new, easy-to-maintain Web interface can generate Web pages from programs within an Oracle database. Chick-fil-A staffers now make payroll and HR module updates in real-time and can make them immediately available to all users simply by performing updates on the Oracle ORCL Application Server, reducing maintenance costs.

"We are pleased that Chick-fil-A selected Stonebridge to leverage their existing information technology structures, enabling the business to operate more efficiently and scale for continued rapid growth," said Dewey Blaylock, president of stonebridge Technologies Southeast.

"By enhancing the company's business processes, the new system will help Chick-fil-A maintain its leadership position in fast food outlets."
