This ‘information gap’ has become an increasingly serious barrier to excellence for HR professionals

Fairsail Payflow illuminates data black hole

READING, UK 25th August 2011, Fairsail, the leader in Total Talent Management, today announced a new Payflow module for its popular cloud-based HR solution, solving the most intractable issue in employee rewards; sharing information across the myriad of HR-related systems used by companies for payroll bureaus, employee benefit enrolment and Human Capital Management (HCM).

Fairsail Payflow provides the link between HR systems: payroll agencies, benefit providers, and other HR and ERP systems. As outsourcing payroll has become commonplace by many corporations, companies have ended up with several incompatible or ‘narrow’ systems from different suppliers, each with its own version of data, as their HR needs become increasingly sophisticated. Worst still it is not unusual for a member of a company or team to completely vanish from a HR system due to complicated and manual input mechanisms; with Fairsail all HR, payroll and benefits information is available in one place.

As payroll usually offers the most up to date HR information, linking it with other HR functions in an automated manner is a logical step. By combining the latest payroll data with Fairsail’s HCM systems new analytical functions unavailable in the past become available. For example companies can now compare the earnings of one employee based in the US to one based in the UK, evaluating cost, performance and skill sets. Such in-depth payroll and HCM analysis is unique to Fairsail and has global reach, revolutionizing people management and out dated payroll and offering an insight into the company’s structure previously unavailable.

Nic Scott, Fairsail CEO, said: “In most companies with multiple HR systems data often seems to fall into black holes, as it is only available and up to date on just one of those systems. This ‘information gap’ has become an increasingly serious barrier to excellence for HR professionals concerned about employee motivation and retention as the combination of both increasingly matter and staff.”

As many organizations struggle due to economic pressures and others join forces to combat the strains, having a system designed to collate and manage across multiple offices, departments and countries can bridge the information gap presumed by many HR systems.
