One of my clients was facing a common challenge in their global process – too many payroll systems and no integrated data or reporting. They had multiple business entities across two countries and were using 9 different systems to manage their global payroll. With no integration between systems, they had to create reports manually each month, and also had issues with their US service provider with no access to in-country expertise.

As companies expand, it’s common to hire a local in-country provider, but as you add more countries the complexity grows with vendors and systems. Suddenly your global payroll process is time-consuming and not as efficient. My client was having the same challenge – they needed a scalable solution as they expanded into new countries, and they needed to simplify their process across multiple entities and countries.

Technology and integration were the two largest challenges, so the first step was to consolidate their systems into one system of record for both US and their international locations. Using Paylocity for global HRIS and US payroll, there is a single sign on for global payroll and a unified solution across all countries and currencies. Our aggregated reporting feature provides real-time data across all countries and currencies so there is no need for manual reporting and no delay in getting information across multiple entities and countries.

As companies expand into new countries, it’s important to have a scalable solution for global payroll and HRIS. With integrated data and reporting functionality within your global payroll solution, you can access your employee payroll data and ensure compliance with in-country regulations.
