Big Boy International

With over 455 World Wide locations, Big Boy International was looking for a business intelligence tool that could interface their Oracle relational database to their Payroll Service. To handle this integration Big Boy chose the GetLinked® Software solution from Accounting Solutions, Inc.

Company Profile:

Big Boy of Michigan started in 1952 as the first Franchisees of Big Boy Restaurants and became the Worldwide Franchiser in 1987. Big Boy is an International sit-down Restaurant chain with over 455 worldwide locations.


After evaluating different Payroll services Big Boy chose Paychex payroll processing services to handle the sheer volume of employee transactions. However, a major concern was how to interface their Time and Attendance data residing in an Oracle Database to the Paychex system.
A major obstacle was that the Paychex product does not have the ability to interface directly with Oracle. Without an integration solution, Big Boy would not be able to make the switch to Paychex. GetLinked was the perfect solution for their integration issues.

Business Solution:

Computer operations director Donald Bochenek with Big Boy International was looking for a product that required no programming intervention by his staff and little if any support.
“In evaluating Big Boys’ needs we could truly see the benefits that GetLinked would provide based upon the enormous amount of employee transactions that were occurring,” states Jim DeFede for Accounting Solutions, Inc. All payroll information from Big Boy is downloaded to their corporate office every Monday morning. GetLinked imports, validates, and then transfers that data into Paychex.
GetLinked was the prefect solution for their integration issues. GetLinked allows Big Boy to import their Oracle Time and Attendance data, validate the data, and then transfer the validated data to Paychex. GetLinked eliminated the manual rekeying process.


Analysis of data becomes critical to a company the size of Big Boy. Any time you can eliminate manual labor it will only increase the ability to make use of the data received.
GetLinked, working in concert with Paychex, has saved Big Boy numerous hours in manual labor. Bochenek states, “there is no longer any manual labor involved to move our edited payroll files from Oracle to the Paychex payroll system. Installing the GetLinked suite software from their website went smoothly without any problems.”
GetLinked‘s ability to eliminate the possibility of rekeying errors was essential to Big Boy with increased confidence and insuring data integrity. GetLinked’s integration abilities allowed Big Boy to implement their desired payroll processing service.
By eliminating the rekeying of payroll data, GETLinked has saved countless hours of labor input every payroll period for Big Boy’s 2,100+ employees.
