Experts within the HR and payroll administration say that from a business operational point of view, it makes a great deal of business sense to drive critical applications through a single service provider.
One of the main reasons is because of the advantages gained through single point of entry of data. This eliminates the possibility of duplication and also of the time required to process the data.

Another very important reason, particularly within a market that is forcing companies to “do more with less”, is benefit of being able to leverage off fast, efficient applications.

Applications like payroll, HR, time and attendance, as well as employee self service, are all seamlessly streamlined and combined to ensure optimised processes and procedures.

This all reinforces efforts to lower costs and increase productivity, which, as management at Accsys, explains is central to any business management and technology integration strategy today.

The company is a national supplier of people management software and hardware solutions within the HR, payroll and time & attendance space and member of the BCX Group.

Teryl Schroenn, CEO of Accsys, says that cost is an important consideration and highly relevant aspect to a discussion on rolling out a single provider for multiple applications.

“Using a single platform to drive multiple applications or projects reduces costs because it eliminates having to purchase a platform for each application,” Schroenn explains.

This approach is based on driving efficiency throughout the entire organisation because it strengthens the application of Business Intelligence and data analysis.

“When you have the level of control that is offered through an integrated, single platform infrastructure, you have the ability to extract and manipulate information effectively. This will certainly impact on generation of reports and utilisation of data,” Schroenn continues.

With the rapid advancement of innovation within HR and payroll systems, and the choice that decision makers today have, it is important to take note of the implications to using one platform and integrated applicatio.

“Systems are becoming more sophisticated and there is a lot to be said for a more streamlined approach,” adds Schroenn.
