Five Factors To Consider When Choosing Payroll Software

Payroll affects every aspect of your business. Whether you want to update your current payroll software or outsource your payroll, it’s a process you need to get right. Your payroll not only needs to be both accurate and efficient; it’s vital that it’s compliant with statutory requirements too. It can be a particularly complex and daunting process if you’re not sure what you’re looking for.

Your employees are your business’s biggest asset, so it’s crucial that they’re engaged, happy and motivated. There are many ways to keep your team’s morale up and a great example is payroll. Global HRIS can provide your employees with the assurance that they will be paid on a timely and consistent basis through our payroll implementation.

We have over 10 years’ experience in implementing HR and payroll solutions. Our main focus is and always will be finding a solution that makes running your payroll simple; saving you time and money. Contact us today to find out how we can support your payroll transition.

There are a few key factors to consider when choosing your new payroll software, and these are shared below.


Your business needs

It’s easy to browse for a new payroll solution without first understanding what’s on offer, or what you need exactly. It’s crucial to find a payroll solution that fits your business’s unique needs. Consider the size of your business, systems and your expectations. The right payroll solution should also meet your needs within budget. Keep these factors in mind before browsing for your payroll software.

Global HR Implementation Services understands that your business is important to you; through our payroll RFP support, we strive to provide you with the most efficient payroll solution. We will review your current payroll provider and identify where your payroll process could be simplified and improved.


Customer Support

High-quality support from your payroll provider and project manager is essential. They should be readily available to advise you on what payroll solution is best for your business and to answer any questions you may have.

From start to finish, you’ll receive a personalised, customer-focused approach with Global HRIS. Whether you’re keeping your payroll in-house and would like to simplify the process, or you’re considering outsourcing your payroll, we are here to help. We pride ourselves in our communication. Our dedicated consultants are always on-hand to support you with any queries you may have.


Organisational change

Implementing a new payroll solution isn’t just about switching up your payroll system. In our experience, business’s neglect the organisational changes required after a payroll transition. A new payroll system won’t change your current processes – only you as a business can do that and Global HRIS can help.

Your organisation should consider how it’s structure might change, what tasks will stay in-house?  What tasks will the system automate?  What are the training requirements? We specialise in providing support for any organisational changes needed as a result of your payroll transition. No project is too big or too small for our dedicated team of consultants.



When you change your payroll software, a crucial thing to consider is the cost. Aside from the costs to operate, support and update your new software, you should also consider any one-time costs. Be mindful that some solution providers are able to charge extra for missed deadlines or deliverables. Here at Global HRIS, we specialise in payroll project management. At Global HRIS we understand what providers are looking for, so there shouldn’t be any hidden costs.

We pride ourselves on our flexible and affordable cost solutions because we tailor our project costs based on your business’s needs. Our consultants set expectations from the start and we’ll always deliver any project to the exceptionally high standard your employees deserve. We’ll deliver it on time, and of course within your budget.

Regulatory requirements

It’s vital that your business is kept in line with government legislation and regulation. Compliance takes time, so outsourcing your payroll could remove this stress. Make sure that your new software ticks all the legal boxes.

Payroll regulation regularly changes, so it’s important you work with a team that provides software which remains compliant with current legislation. Our team have experience working with global and local HR software providers, such as SuccessFactors, Workday, SAP (euHReka), Resourcelink and iiPay.

We’ll take the stress of your payroll project away, so you can focus on your business.
