Faced with a recession many businesses and organisations maintain where possible the customer facing / delivery parts of their business while looking to cut costs elsewhere. Typically, this is in the back office and one of the favourite areas is finance.

While vital, finance and in particular payroll is an area that can be effectively outsourced. Indeed payroll outsourcing, because of its technical nature, has commonly been outsourced for many years. The market for outsourced payroll services is now quite mature.

However, if you are looking to maximise the savings to be made from outsourcing you need to ensure that you are not simply moving a problem to an external source. An inefficient payroll system laden with problems does not make for a smooth transition and as an organisation you will be unable to negotiate the best price for the service.

If you are looking for a payroll service partner you can look to them to not only complete the technical part of the payroll but their expertise should also be on tap to help you make your existing data capture and communication system more efficient.

Asking for assistance if you have payroll problems will enable you to negotiate the best prices.  At Dataplan Payroll we commonly work closely with our customers to ensure that the whole payroll process works smoothly and efficiently to provide those cost savings and improvements in performance of the payroll function.
