Immedis, the Ireland-headquartered global payroll outsourcer and related software provider, has announced that new analytics and mobile self-service functionality will be live in Q1 2022. Immedis Analytics will expand the breadth and depth of the company’s real-time data analytics, allowing users to both drill into data on a granular level and access centralized, consolidated reporting. Paired with persona-based mapping, these capabilities will provide Immedis clients the deep and detailed data they need to drive decision-making across the organization, while ensuring that their employees’ privacy is completely protected. The company will also launch a previously unavailable employee self-service functionality, which will be offered on both desktop and mobile platforms.
For workforce planning purposes, as well as compliance, payroll data is extremely valuable to any organization. This of course includes global payroll data, which is particularly complex and in need of distillation into forms and formats that organizations and their people can understand and use. These challenges and needs have existed for a long time.
Meanwhile, the pandemic has precipitated several worldwide trends in the world of work, such as the accelerated adoption of technology and the globalization of an increasingly remote workforce. Other trends, such as the move toward data-driven decision-making and the growing emphasis on diversity and inclusion, were already underway, but also received intensified attention as employers recalibrated their focus amid workforce furloughs, work-from-home (WFH) and other massive disruptions to the day-to-day of business.
Wherever and whenever these changes originate, the fact is that companies must adapt to stay current and competitive—and compliant. One such adaptation is the emergence of stakeholders such as chief diversity officers and chief data officers to lead these trends’ resulting charters. Only recently did either of these or other, similar C-suite roles exist, let alone wield influence over organizations’ decision-making in business software investments. But most large companies now consider these roles critical. Both place an increasing emphasis on data, which translates to an increasing pressure on teams responsible for payroll to discern and provide that data. Feeding this pressure, several new, related concerns join a list of long-held considerations of the global enterprise.
