AXA Chooses leading Corporate Payroll Package

AXA Insurance Limited uses Intelligo’s leading corporate payroll package, Megapay and Employee Self Service module to manage their payroll function for over 750 staff across 42 branches in Ireland.


AXA is one of the largest and oldest general Insurance companies in Ireland. They specialise in providing the motor, household, commercial and commercial non-motor insurance. Their Headquarters are located in Dublin, and they have an extensive network of 42 branches around Ireland employing over 750 staff.


According to Shane Corr, Payroll Administrator for AXA, “We have been using Megapay, Intelligo’s corporate payroll software in-house at AXA’s Head Office for the past 20 years. Megapay is very user-friendly regarding processing data from start to finish and extracting reports as required.

The service we receive from Intelligo is also excellent; they have a highly experienced team of consultants who provide support by phone, web, email and onsite visits when required.”


“We extract comprehensive reports from Megapay, from balancing the payroll, interfacing with financials (SAP) to analysing data for our Expense Team. We also produce ad-hoc reports for various internal departments which are useful to highlight overtime, bonus trends, cost centre changes, etc.”

Shane added, “Due to the volume of staff in AXA, it is essential for us to import master file and timesheet data such as staff policies, salary changes, bonuses, etc. Megapay is tailored and customised to meet these requirements.”

“also, we rolled out the Employee Self Service module to all staff in 2010. The feedback was excellent, in particular, the current and historical payslips that the module holds and the fact that P60s can be viewed and printed.

There are also re-occurring time savings both for payroll staff and AXA, in that payslips do not need to be printed, distributed, and stationery & postage costs are substantially reduced.”


According to Shane, the key features of Megapay are as follows;

 – Updates: Intelligo is highly efficient in providing budgetary updates and ad-hoc patches; particularly at year end, as AXA always has an early fortnightly payroll to run in January.

– Payslips: We have over 500 Pensioners, and 40% receive payslips by email. This facility is proving to be very cost effective for AXA. Intelligo’s payslips are also very detailed which we find reduces questions to the Payroll Dept.

– Support: The live support facility is really useful and quick for answering customised queries relating to AXA.
