IRIS help A.M. Nomikos & Son get their payroll shipshape
Shipping agency A.M. Nomikos & Son had always handled their UK payroll in-house, but in 2008 they made the decision to outsource this function to IRIS. We spoke to Finance Account Manager Annette Canbas to find out what led to this move.
With a relatively small team based in the UK, Annette had no trouble running a manual payroll. However, when the shipping industry saw its boom in 2004-2006, the UK team at A.M. Nomikos & Son quadrupled in size and running a manual payroll was no longer an efficient solution.
“With the team expanding at such a rate, we didn’t have the time or manpower to continue manually processing our payroll. Things were getting out of control and we needed a solution that would save us time and money” Annette commented.
“Initially we were looking to purchase payroll software so we could continue running our payroll in-house. We came to IRIS as a number of people in the business had experience with IRIS payroll software. However, we eventually decided that it would be more practical to utilise the IRIS Managed Payroll Service. The solution fit our budget perfectly.”
The switch was finally made in April 2008 and the relationship between IRIS and A.M. Nomikos & Son has continued to grow from then.
“The initial transition went incredibly smoothly. I think this is largely down to the great team up in Stockton-on-Tees. They are so well organised and incredibly knowledgeable when it comes to running payroll. If I ever have any questions or need advice, there is always somebody at the other end of the phone who is more than happy to help me out.”
When Real Time Information (RTI) was introduced in April 2013, IRIS was there to guide Annette through the change.
“After IRIS had prompted me to prepare for RTI, the transition was easy. Now all I need to do is add an extra column into my monthly spreadsheet and that’s it!
I have already recommended IRIS to a number of friends and colleagues and will definitely continue to do so!”
