WorkForce Software and Patersons Announce Strategic Alliance
Partnership combines leading platforms for global payroll and workforce management solutions

LIVONIA, Michigan – February 2, 2012WorkForce Software, the leading provider of workforce management solutions for organizations with complex labor policies and stringent compliance demands, today announced that it has partnered with Patersons, a leader in cloud-based global payroll delivery to clients in more than 160 countries. Under the terms of the agreement, WorkForce Software has developed a pre-configured interface between their award-winning EmpCenter suite of workforce management solutions and Patersons’ CloudPay platform. The combined offering empowers employers to fully comply with both national and local wage and hour regulations, reduce the complexity of payroll processes and practices, and gain greater insight into the day-to-day activities of their workforce.

WorkForce Software’s EmpCenter suite delivers a broad array of workforce management capabilities – from ‘traditional’ applications such as time and attendance, employee scheduling and analytics, to more specialized applications focused on absence and leave management, as well as mitigating risks associated with employee fatigue. Through EmpCenter’s flexible architecture and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) deployment capabilities, WorkForce Software empowers clients to automate 100% of all pay rules and policies solely through configuration – no custom code, no cumbersome manual ‘work-arounds’ – from anywhere in the world.

Patersons’ CloudPay platform is a fully cloud-based global payroll solution that adapts to customer requirements and uses workflow and standardized processes to provide efficient and effective payroll management. A proven solution for multinational firms, CloudPay is trusted by customers in over 160 countries and in 20 different languages across the globe. The solution adheres to ISO27001, SSAE 16 and ISAE 3402 standards, enables permission-based secure Web access to all payroll data, and easily scales to meet the needs of Fortune 2000 companies.

“Patersons and WorkForce Software share a common vision and approach, as well as a unique corporate culture focused on innovation and client success,” stated Kevin Choksi, CEO of WorkForce Software. “Through this strategic alliance, we can deliver access to a more diverse, more complete solution to our international clients.”

“Regardless of where in the world our clients conduct business, stringent regulations and a keen eye on bottom line performance has placed a renewed focus on workforce management and payroll processes,” said Andrew Pearson, CEO of Patersons. “WorkForce Software’s field-proven expertise, combined with their rapidly-growing global client base, makes them an ideal partner for our organization.”
