Known internationally for its reliability, diversity and expertise, MakLoc Buildings and Construction Inc. has been in business since 1971. The company’s solid reputation has made them the number one choice among petroleum and engineering organizations around the world.

Since its establishment, MakLoc has grown to over 200 employees with offices and manufacturing facilities in Calgary, Edmonton and Morinville.

Before the company discovered Rise People’s modern HR, benefits, and payroll platform, they were using one of the more popular but older brand’s software. Amy Cornelius, Human Resources & Payroll Officer at MakLoc Buildings says it was far more costly and difficult to use than Rise, which is why they made the switch.

When asked what she likes about using Rise, Amy Cornelius, Human Resources & Payroll Officer at MakLoc, says, “I think it is very user-friendly and easy to use. The support team has always been great to deal with”. She says she would definitely recommend Rise to her colleagues as “It’s been great to use so far”.

“It is very user-friendly and easy to use.”

Excellent customer service

“The support team has always been great to deal with and the user forums online are easily accessible and helpful as well.”

More affordable than other HR information systems and payroll platforms

Amy says the old, more traditional software they used before Rise was “much more expensive with a much less user-friendly interface.” She likes that Rise is less costly, even though she finds it to be a superior product to the other platforms.
