The Challenge:

Before EfroTech’s ePayroll, RB (UAE) was allocating an inordinate amount of time and resources to payroll pro­cessing. Because they had been using an outdated solution that was extremely rigid, RB encoun­tered many processing problems as its employee base grew and additional management reports were needed. On numerous occasions, payroll processors found themselves working until mid­night to ensure that the RB’s employees would be paid on time. This situation not only created excessive overtime compensation, but it also resulted in unnecessary stress on the payroll staff and prevented them from accomplishing other tasks. Additionally, the old payroll system was incapable of compiling the management reports RB needed to analyze employee costs and to forecast the impact of changes in compensation or staffing.

Mistakes with processing payroll caused embarrassment. Furthermore, payroll processing is a recurring activity, so there were so many chances to make errors and mistakes too, getting all the required tax forms, deposits and payments right was another issue.

RB previously used payroll system did not have the ability to track and report on critical human resource functions, such as staffing, benefits expense, and variable compensation pay. These difficulties led the RB to search for an integrated and affordable payroll solution.

The Solution:

The Management was left with two options; Either to hire a dedicated resource that works out the details of payroll as not only is this generally the highest single cost centre, but also because it involves government regulations and financial planning; Or, opt for a tried and tested payroll solution that integrates with the corporate financial accounting application, ensures online transfer of funds to employee accounts, generates all the tax-related documentation and is available for reporting 24/7. The sure choice, given the rising cost of production and the need for assigning more bottom-line-oriented tasks to employees, was opting for robust software.

RB considered both in-house and outsourcing options and quickly determined that a reliable IT vendor’s solution would afford both the internal control and the level of functionality that needed. After considering numerous payroll system providers, RB chose EforTech’s ePayroll. RB was impressed with the practical solutions and efficient operations that were provided them in Pakistan by EfroTech.
