The Case for End-to-End Payroll Analytics

Nov 15, 2018 

Across business functions as varied as marketing, finance, IT, and human resources, companies use sophisticated analytics to conduct end-to-end performance analysis and generate boardroom insights. The exception: the payroll department.

As a ‘legacy’ business sector long dominated by outdated solutions and manual processes, global payroll has yet to become as data-driven as other key functions of the enterprise. Due to the lack of automation and standardized processes in the space, analytics have been largely an afterthought in global payroll.

Why? Because reporting and analytics are far from synonymous

While most payroll providers send a wealth of reports to their clients, the reports detail static information and present it in a static way. Analytics, on the other hand, enable payroll customers to visualize their data in real time and understand it in greater context—providing far more actionable and insightful intelligence than reports can.

The added sense of perspective that analytics delivers is crucial to improving global payroll performance.

Even with so many reports in their arsenal, many managed services providers supple customers with limited information on payroll performance, allowing processing data to stay locked in a ‘black box’ until all pay cycles have been completed and exception reports disseminated.

So it follows that the most valuable payroll intelligence is acquired when organizations take a holistic approach to payroll across the global enterprise: Armed with standardized processes, automated workflows, and expert managed services and support, multinational organizations that deploy integrated payroll solutions can cultivate analytics that add value to a variety of operational improvement initiatives.

To help stakeholders “change the game” in their organizations, we’ve published an in-depth CloudPaper on using the power of next-generation analytics to elevate the role of payroll. Game-changing results are achievable by focusing on three key areas, explained in depth in the report:

  • Establishing a foundation for data integrity
  • Building a cloud-based and analytics-driven strategy
  • Using analytical insights to drive long-term improvement
