Sage hits “important milestone” for SMEs as new payroll solution launches in the UK and US

Newcastle based Sage, the specialist in accounting, financial, HR and payroll technology for SMEs, has launched Sage People Payroll in the UK and the US.

The cloud-based HR and payroll solution is designed to help businesses work smarter, scale and grow, and offer the best experience to their employees. It enables increased collaboration and efficiencies between HR and payroll, delivering significant cost and time savings.

In the UK with Sage People Payroll, businesses will be able to benefit from:

  • Simplified workflows: One integrated system, from payroll to annual leave, sickness absence and performance management.
  • Accuracy and visibility: Offering an end-to-end view of employees’ data and synchronising people and payroll information, processes, and workflows. The risk of errors is reduced significantly, enabling businesses to make payments on time and stay compliant.
  • Collaboration: The cloud-based system allows data changes to be made by HR and Payroll colleagues simultaneously, allowing speedy collaboration across HR and Payroll teams.
  • Improved productivity: The software can process data on thousands of employees in minutes, enabling businesses to save up to 30 per cent of the time usually required for processing payroll.
  • Strategic Insights: The solution enables businesses to access critical analytics regarding costs, areas for potential savings and the gender pay gap.
  • Pay-on-demand functionality: Allowing employees to request part of their salary before payday, and self-service payslips also give employees more control over their personal finances.

Jonathan Goldsmith, head of HR and payroll at Sage, explained: “Launching Sage People Payroll in the UK and the US is an important milestone for us, delivering on our strategic ambition of being the trusted network for an integrated Payroll and HR solution for mid-sized businesses.

“Running payroll is not just clicking a button. Due to recent regulatory changes, complexities added by the gig economy, and the global pandemic, it has become one of the most complex business operations from a back-office perspective.

“It’s the engine room of a business that needs to run seamlessly on a tight schedule. Our new software has been designed to empower teams to collaborate efficiently, quickly and accurately, enabling them to boost productivity and enhance employees’ satisfaction.”

James Proctor, director of professional and managed services at Phase 3, customer and Sage Partner, added: “Payroll teams can make better and quicker decisions using the power of great technology.

“As a result, late or inaccurate payments can become a thing of the past, supporting employee wellbeing and maintaining a vital bond of trust between employer and employee.”
