Richard Cangemi, CEOWith unemployment rates continuing to drop across the United States, managing the massive amount of personal and confidential data within Human Resources (HR) in terms of payroll and healthcare benefits is an arduous task for any company. In such a scenario, Mangrove Software—a Tampa, FL based firm—comes forward to address the intricacies within the HR landscape. With a vision for a single point of entry and one master employee record, Mangrove designed a single database solution to streamline the human capital management process for HR and payroll managers. “We designed the platform to be an all-encompassing Human Resource Management System (HRMS) for mid-sized companies,” says Richard Cangemi, CEO, Mangrove Software. The company develops, sells, and implements HR, payroll, ACA reporting and compliance, benefits, and talent management software solutions.
Mangrove’s Human Capital Management (HCM) suite is an easy-to-use, fully-integrated HR/payroll application uniquely designed to help companies’ better recruit, manage, pay, and analyze their workforce. This system captures data from beginning to end executing a paperless HR operation with ease.

The HCM solution eradicates the need for large up-front investments, ongoing maintenance, cumbersome integration of software, and data quality issues.

The HCM takes advantage of an intelligent design for managing the high volume of information that workers deal with today
However, Cangemi is taking the company to new heights by fusing social networking into his client’s end-to-end HCM system. “We created a ‘socially net¬worked’ workforce. The socially-aware environment can be used to identify, predict, and facilitate many of the actionable aspects of HCM to drive substantial productivity gains and cost savings,” exclaims Cangemi. The social HCM distributes actionable events, polls, and notifications, all within an easy-to-follow and familiar interface for information consumption. “The HCM takes advantage of an intelligent design for managing the high volume of information that workers deal with today,” he adds. In addition, the social network with its diversity of relevant connections increases communication and collaboration among the employees. Documents, multimedia files, ideas, and experiences can be exchanged privately or across entire departments, locations, workgroups, or special project groups.
“With over 15 years of experience and thousands of clients utilizing our solutions, we have developed a phased implementation approach that leverages technology for a smooth transition to our system. We have also created a culture that understands the value of true partnership, communication, and collaboration,” says Cangemi. Mangrove’s core culture is based on uncompromisable service integrity and quality. “Mangrove is a place where common sense takes precedence over bureaucracy and inaction. Ingrained in Mangrove’s culture is empowerment, focus, communication, and responsibility where every associate’s first priority is to serve our customers,” concludes Cangemi.
