Payroll Management: choice for the public sector

Payroll Management: choice for the public sector

Why use outsourced payroll?

Outsourcing the payroll function can save your organisation time and money. You can benefit from the same accessibility, flexibility and control of running the payroll in-house, without having to allocate your staff, equipment, time and resources to ensuring employees are paid correctly and on time. Plus, you will not have any of the worries of keeping up to date with current technology and payroll legislation.

How can using outsourced payroll help with health and social care integration?

Outsourced payroll mirrors the benefits of health and social care integration, i.e. a good working partnership with the objective of achieving positive outcomes.  Using a payroll service will ensure that payroll processing and the delivery of payslips, remains unaffected by change and integration of services. Different payrolls can be set up and processed quickly and efficiently, regardless of payee numbers.

How does outsourced payroll make life better for our team?

Since outsourced payroll providers are specialists, with relevant resources at their disposal, they can process even the most complex payrolls at speed. Unlike most employers, they can also accommodate a temporary influx of seasonal workers without acquiring new systems that will remain dormant the rest of the year. Plus, routine payroll administration can be draining to your staff and your business. When released from routine payroll responsibilities, your staff will be free to focus on other, more creative work.  The benefits of outsourcing can be further extended by giving staff access to their pay details, via self-service or a payslip portal.

How does using outsourced payroll improve cyber security?

With an outsourced payroll you minimise the risk of payment manipulation. With so many other factors consuming the payroll team, who has the time or resource to closely scrutinise the payroll for potential fraud?  Frontier Software’s ichris payroll system provides robust security and user definable audit trails. It can be set up to provide access for different users without compromising the security of the database. Furthermore, as we are an ISO certified provider, you can be assured that information security relating to hardware, network, software, data storage, handling and processing is in place and regularly audited.
