Consolidating a ‘decentralized’ payroll landscape into a global solution is a complex initiative. Due to the sheer number of stakeholders and systems involved, it can be easy for an organization to experience delays and rack up unnecessary costs in the implementation process.

That’s why CloudPay approaches implementation with a structured deployment model and a focus on efficiency. 

Well-versed in the complexity of navigating different cultural requirements, languages and geographic requirements, CloudPay is able to deliver process efficiencies that fast-track results.

This breadth and depth of expertise in global payroll and payments deployments helps organizations realize a smooth and seamless transition to CloudPay.

Our team engages in specialized project planning for each customer. Based on decades of experience in complex global payroll implementations, we modify our structured approach to meet each customer’s unique needs and minimize the costs and time of set-up and onboarding.

CloudPay’s team will ensure that the project is phased at appropriate times of the year and with countries that will set the stage for success during the global transition. Parallel runs will compare results between the incumbent systems and CloudPay and ensure execution is in accordance with defined plans.

From discovery and configuration to testing and go-live, our specialists provide expert guidance and timely updates to keep all parties focused on the end goal: An efficient, on-time implementation.
