How Leading Food Manufacturer Gained a Competitive Edge with Cloud Payroll

Learn how this organization streamlined its HR, payroll and time management processes by moving payroll into the cloud.

This market-leading multinational food manufacturer moved from fragmented, old systems to streamlined processes between HR, payroll and time management with SAP SuccessFactors.

The Challenge

A market-leading multinational food manufacturer was operating several fragmented, old systems. To improve their processes, they needed technology that would combine HR, payroll, and time tracking across countries. The changes needed to be rolled out in a way that allowed the company to maintain its market position while also expanding its competitive advantage.

The Solution

Effective People worked with the client to implement a SuccessFactors Suite of HR products with payroll for their key markets, which included the UK, Ireland, France, and the Netherlands. They created a road map to improve employee experience through the addition of talent modules.

Business Impact

Processes were streamlined between payroll, HR, and time management. The fact that employees had access to real-time data meant that the administrative burden on managers was greatly eased, with time saved. HR and Finance leaders had access to key analytics and people data to facilitate strategic decision-making. During the project, the business contended with a major acquisition, with a further 2000 employees added to the solution. The new system demonstrated its capability and flexibility to adapt and provide solutions to large business changes.

Effective People and Your Cloud Payroll Solution

Cloud HR and payroll software providers like SAP SuccessFactors have revolutionized people processes. Although the system is standardized and can be rolled out on a global scale, the Cloud is ever-evolving. This means that organizations need to embrace continuous improvement alongside efficiency and innovation. Often, a one-size-fits-all approach does not work.
