Business value

Global companies often rely on in-country and other third-party providers to process payroll. Integrating their employee profile, benefit, and compensation data is necessary to effectively process payroll. They also want to provide a single point of entry for their employees to be able to update their data and view earnings statements and tax documents. By providing these in-country providers the ability to integrate with Human Resources, these customers can use any payroll provider that fits their business needs.
