ACT make a smooth switch to IRIS OpenPayslips, digital payslips
Adams Morey made the decision to use EARNIE payroll software, from IRIS Software Group, after careful consideration of its current software and in context with a significant T&A project due to be undertaken in 2013/14. This combined with a major change to legislation – the introduction of Real Time Information (RTI) had led to a review of the options available in the market place.
RTI is viewed as the biggest change to payroll since PAYE was introduced in 1944 and is mandatory for almost all UK employers from 6 April 2013. Adams Morey turned to Isys Systems, a Time and Attendance software provider, who suggested looking at EARNIE payroll software.
Adams Morey has been a major supplier of DAF trucks to businesses across the country since 1973 and has since grown to a company employing over 300 people, across multiple locations, with a turnover of £60 million.
Shaun Moody, IT Manager at Adams Morey commented: “With the prospect of RTI submission looming we were grateful to Isys Systems for recommending EARNIE software to us; from a company they had a long working relationship with (IRIS). Intelligent Time (Time & Attendance software) from Isys systems is soon to be installed at our 10 dealerships and will fully integrate with EARNIE software.
This, and the fact that EARNIE software is RTI compliant, running on a SQL platform, will give us the opportunity to develop a more integrated solution for our business.”
IRIS, who supply EARNIE payroll software, have over 30 years’ experience providing payroll software and solutions to over 30,000 small to medium companies across the UK. IRIS has been participating in HMRC’s pilot scheme for RTI since it began and has used the knowledge gained from this to develop a complete RTI solution, to ensure no business is left behind when the new legislation is implemented.
ACT Conferencing, a leading global provider of audio, web and video collaboration solutions, have been outsourcing their UK payroll to IRIS for almost 6 years. We recently sat down with HR Manager Vicki French to find out some more about their experiences with IRIS over this period.
ACT recently made the switch from paper payslips to IRIS OpenPayslips, the new digital payslip solution introduced by IRIS in May 2013. IRIS OpenPayslips allows employers to publish their payslips instantly to a secure, online portal where their employees can then view at their leisure via a smartphone, tablet or computer.
“Since introducing IRIS OpenPayslips we have saved so much time! Distributing our payslips used to be quite a time consuming task. We would have to distribute them around the office, or post them out to employees working from home or in the field. Now it is all done digitally and our employees can check their payslips from anywhere! I think IRIS OpenPayslips is a brilliant idea. It reduces waste and saves time and it’s so easy, it just works!”
