Case Study: Colt Technology Services Continues to Accrue Efficiencies in Global Payroll with Longtime CloudPay Deployment

What You Need to Know Perhaps nothing defines the first two decades of the 21st century so much as globalization. Well before the COVID-19 pandemic accelerated these trends, we were already seeing unprecedented growth in the number of companies operating worldwide and finding that job markets and workforces were no longer limited by geographical barriers. There are now hundreds of thousands of multinational companies in business, and each one needs a way to pay its employees, wherever they are in the world. In the old days, this meant retaining local service providers in every region where even a single employee was based—the only way to ensure compliance with, for example, regional tax and year-end processing requirements. Aside from the obvious administrative challenges that naturally occur […]

Research Note: Outsourcing Global Payroll: The Impact on Data Security & Compliance

Payroll is a mission-critical activity. Personal fulfillment and career advancement are important, but for most people the main reason they go to work is for a paycheck. Get it wrong, and the ramifications can be swift and bruising. Nearly half (49 percent) of the workforce is willing to tolerate just two problems with their paycheck before beginning a new job search, according to The Workforce Institute at UKG. This is probably because 69 percent of individuals would experience financial difficulty if their paychecks were delayed for a week, according to results from a 2020 survey conducted by the American Payroll Association. It’s a phenomenon other data corroborate. Nearly four-fifths (78 percent) of the workforce lives paycheck-to-paycheck to make ends meet, according to CareerBuilder, whose findings […]

Case Study: SilkRoad Technology Engages with Cleveland Clinic to Implement and Support Custom Deployment of RedCarpet Onboarding

Thanks in part to software-as-a-service enterprise software, the onboarding of new employees and contractors is easier than ever to manage. These solutions can be straightforward for users and proficient at handling what they’re built to solve. And it’s critical that they excel in these ways, as software companies need a solid foundation upon which to show that customers are receiving value. The cost-related and logistical barriers users face as they weigh their options are less burdensome than they were for organizations on the ever-present on-premises installations of the past, after all. Previously focusing efforts on closing new deals, safe in the knowledge that clients would not be up for another disruptive overhaul to their installation any time soon, vendors of software for human capital management […]

Tuning Up Your ERP/Finance Infrastructure

To judge the ultimate immaturity of the “Cloud” ERP/Finance solution market, look no further than the broad success of vendors offering MDM (Master Data Management) solutions. Ironically, one of the perennial leaders in the space is one of the biggest purveyors of “you only need one” ERP/Finance solutions talking out the other side of their mouth—the 800-pound gorilla that is SAP—calling into constant question whether there can ever be a single, central solution to any company’s ERP/Finance needs. This actually makes perfect sense: Even within a unicorn single-instance ERP/Finance implementation, there will always be utility in matching incoming and outcoming transactions/messages to the proverbial “Golden Record”—to/from suppliers and customers who so often represent the true source of the information contained therein. (How many times has […]

Bring Your Own Device: Q&A With Global Executive Advisory Council Member Bill Oliver

The pandemic has changed the working landscape, relocating employees from confined office spaces to their homes.  Leaders may think that as long as employees have access to the internet, they can work from home (WFH). And that may be so, technically. Beyond the technicalities, however—and beyond the very real concerns behind preserving the employee experience—WFH is a logistical nightmare that exacerbates concerns over security and compliance. At the conventional office, organizations spend a significant amount of time and budget to ensure that their infrastructure is secure and as regulatory compliant as possible; the office is, effectively, a highly controlled environment. The moment you send any employee to WFH, you introduce many variables that could have hidden consequences. Questions arise: How secure is the home network? […]
