Tips for Evaluating New Payroll and HR Providers

The right payroll and HR technology offers so much more than administrative capabilities. Knowing what to look for when evaluating new providers can help you find a solution that will take your organization to the next level.

Tip 1: Start with the future in mind
Before you look at system features, take the time to define what you want to accomplish, change and improve so you can identify a solution that best meets both current and future potential needs.

Tip 2: Consider your organization’s culture and unique needs
If you have operations spanning multiple jurisdictions, states or countries, you need a vendor who can stay on top of changing regional guidelines.

Tip 3: Prioritize security and privacy
Know how your organization’s data will be stored, transferred and backed up, but also pay attention to how the vendor handles fraud and business resilience issues.

Tip 4: Look for a robust implementation model
A provider with a successful implementation record will get you up and running efficiently and provide ongoing support to your employees.

Tip 5: Plan to optimize adoption
Preparing end-users through change management, communications and training will help ease the transition for all levels of employees and greatly improves your chances of successful adoption of a new solution.

Your payroll and HR systems cross every functional area in your company and are used by every employee.
