Global absence management provider, Edays, has partnered with activpayroll, a global payroll provider and tax specialist, to form a comprehensive winning formula. Together, Edays and activpayroll noticed the grey area between absence management and global payroll, two processes so reliant on each other yet often managed in silo.
activpayroll and Edays recognised that global payroll and absence management have now become interdependent; however, with absence management getting more complicated globally, activpayroll realised they were in need of a strategic partner that would complement their expanding business. Edays’ global coverage and integration stood out as the perfect partner for activpayroll.
Alison Sellar, CEO of activpayroll said: “Our customers’ main inefficiencies appeared to be around global compliance with local holidays and sickness rules in the high number of countries we now operate in, as well as unplanned absence and challenges around leave and employee engagement. Finding a partner that was as eager as us to enhance and solve these issues was top of our list.”
By becoming global partners, Edays and activpayroll are looking to turn grey to gold with seamless data integration, detailed pay and leave insight, and to provide a smarter way of working for customers. When the two processes are harmonised, businesses are able to accurately calculate sick leave whilst factoring in financial liability for holiday debt.
Steve Arnold, CEO of Edays said: “Absence data is a key data set for processing accurate payroll. However, the flow of absence data into payroll systems often provides major headaches for global businesses. The headache is compounded by many global firms having multiple different absence systems for different jurisdictions. This strategic partnership brings together two specialists, each of whom can provide global capability through a single interface. The result for customers is a more seamless, compliant solution, backed with excellent user experience.“
