Our services


Want us to process your SAP® payroll?

As experts in processing payroll on SAP® software, you can outsource all or part of your payroll processing to us on a country-by-country basis. The payroll system can be hosted or on-premises – your system, our people.

We have access to a wealth of SAP payroll technology experts in our Group and can offer expert advice and technology solutions to streamline and optimize your payroll process.


Need more SAP® payrolls in more countries?

With our technology-enabled ‘SAP® payroll everywhere’ approach, we can deploy SAP® payroll in any country for any number of employees affordably, using PayrollExpress (‘PEX’). This yields a homogeneous global payroll technology platform that:

  • integrates consistently with your global HR system;
  • enables a comprehensive global reporting suite;
  • is geographically scalable and cost-efficient;
  • provides standardization, security, and compliance; and
  • comes with the option of on-site, near-shore, off-shore, or hybrid BPO services.


Need more hands?

If you have staffing-related payroll risks and need to fill critical roles in the short to medium term, then we can make our seasoned payroll personnel available to you on a staff augmentation basis. We can also support peak demand periods for payroll such as bonus processing, back-dated adjustments, or an annual salary increase with our experts.
