  • Sourcing of the gross to net process is unique to each company. Some companies may meet the profile of one (in-house vs. outsource) but because of their corporate goals and objectives, outsourcing may be the better solution for them. It is not a one size fits all, but if the payroll is outsourced, companies must recognize the need for a strong governance and vendor management skills.
  • Some of the features and functionality that are lacking are: <br /> <br /> 73% require manual intervention when retroactive payments are calculated <br /> 56% have lock out periods that prohibit them for performing certain activities when the payroll calculation is being performed <br /> 27% don’t integration between the HR, time reporting, payroll and accounting system <br /> 29% indicate it’s difficult to automate business processes <br /> 38% indicate reporting capabilities is easy <br />
  • Some of the things impacting technology costs for ERPs are: <br /> Level of customizations <br /> Integration to other systems <br /> Costs of upgrades <br /> Costs of support and maintenance
  • Dependency on IT Resources: <br /> Testing <br /> Development <br /> Migration <br /> Support <br /> Maintenance <br /> Customizations
  • Simplification and standardization of business processes must be achieved internally before the level of effort and ease can be determined in the system.
  • In-house resource spend more time on analytical & transactional activities while outsourced resources spend more time on technical and process improvement activities <br /> In-house resources also resolve more inquiries within 24 hours <br /> The expectation is the cost of technology on a cloud based solution will decrease; making it less of a factor when considering outsourcing the payroll process
