With Robotic Process Automation long being the preserve of the really large multi-national enterprise, Payplus didn’t feel that this exciting automation technology would be something they could benefit from, let alone embark on a successful scalable automation program across their business. However, a new service provided by Lawrence & Wedlock is changing this reality and bringing world-class, leading-edge transformation solutions within everyone’s reach and providing an edge for SME’s to compete like never before.
Payplus (www.payplus.co.uk) is a UK based payroll bureau who provide top quality payroll services to small and medium-sized businesses, including the education sector. Outsourcing their payroll allows employers to free themselves from the burden of their payroll obligations, enabling them to get on with more profit-orientated tasks whilst Payplus is committed to getting their clients’ payroll completed accurately and on time.
In its current form, Payplus has been providing payroll services since 2008. Each month, the current business runs around 1000 payrolls, processes approximately 50,000 payslips and pays £400 million per annum through the Bacs system on behalf of clients.
Paul Marsden, Founder of Payplus explains: “Payplus also processes payrolls for a number of accountants, taking their clients payrolls and dealing with the time consuming and increasingly technically complex aspect for them. The introduction of the Furlough scheme was the last straw for many accountants in terms of payroll, coming on top of having to cope with Pension Automatic Enrolment. As a result they have sought to outsource the payroll aspect of client work”.
