SuccessFactors and NorthgateArinso Partner to Deliver Integrated Global HCM and Payroll Services in the Cloud
MADRID, Spain – Nov. 14, 2012 - NorthgateArinso (NGA), a leading global human resources (HR) services provider, and SuccessFactors, an SAP company and the leader in cloud-based business execution software , today announced a partnership that will enable SuccessFactors Employee Central customers to take advantage of NGA’s global payroll services.
The partnership will provide Employee Central customers with a pre-built integration to euHReka, NGA’s global HR & payroll platform, which offers cloud-based payroll services in more than 100 countries.
For customers that wish to manage payroll in-house, SuccessFactors launched its own cloud-based payroll solution for Employee Central customers in July 2012. This offering will now be complemented with a range of BPaaS (Business Process as a Service) payroll options from NorthgateArinso, via its euHReka Inclusion Framework and supported by its global service centers. This allows Employee Central customers to choose between various options for global payroll, depending on their business requirements and service delivery preferences in various geographies.
As a result of the partnership, Employee Central customers will be able to outsource payroll to an additional specialist provider, and rapidly deploy managed payroll services globally, leveraging a fully localized and preconfigured payroll platform. NGA’s global payroll solution will seamlessly integrate with SuccessFactors using an out-of-the box payroll solution. The connector will be generally available in early 2013.
Rajesh Rajan, vice president, Everest Group, comments: “At Everest Group, we continue to see high demand for global payroll outsourcing, as it allows organizations to significantly and quickly reduce risk, cost and complexity in HR service delivery. We expect the global payroll outsourcing market to grow by 25 to 30 percent between 2012 and 2014. Integrated solutions between cloud-based payroll and workforce administration solutions will help fuel that growth.”
Michael Custers, vice president, Global Alliances & Strategic Marketing, at NorthgateArinso adds: “NGA’s global payroll solutions allow organizations to rely on a specialist provider to run payroll in every currency, guarantee regulatory compliance in every country and provide expert support to employees in every language. After all, we believe that HR leaders’ time is better spent developing the workforce, managing talent, analyzing HR trends and making smarter business decisions, rather than tracking legal changes or researching tax codes.”
“Our customers are looking for truly global HCM solutions that are not only able to operate consistently in various countries, but also account for local business practices, legal requirements, compliance and statutory reporting,” said Dmitri Krakovsky, vice president, Global Product Management, SuccessFactors. “Our HCM solutions are backed by SAP’s team of over 800 in-country resources who track and account for these things so that our customers don’t have to. NGA does the same thing with their multi-country payroll solutions, which is an area where local rules and regulations emerge and evolve on a regular basis. Together, we will uniquely address the hardest part of global HCM, so our customers can focus their time and resources on what matters most."
