Management Solutions revenue grew 3% to $687.7 million during the quarter, driven by an increase in customer base. The Rochester, New York-based company said its interest on funds held for clients increased 25% to $17.1 million due to higher average interest rates earned.

We also continue to experience strong demand for our professional employer organization services, achieving double-digit growth in the number of client worksite employees served.”
