McAfee chooses Intellipay as their new Payroll Software Provider

“We chose Intelligo’s UK Payroll Software – Megapay over the other UK payroll systems as we needed a payroll provider who could support both the UK and Irish Payroll legislation”.

The shared service centre is based in Cork processes 24 payrolls across 23 different countries including 1 Irish payroll and 2 UK Payrolls with a total of 421 staff on the UK Payrolls.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SYSTEM

According to Claire Grant, Payroll Manager EMEA at McAfee, “We had been using a UK payroll software provider, one of the market leaders, but unfortunately found their product did not suit our needs.  We looked at other payroll providers in the UK but needed a provider who could support both UK & Irish payroll legislation.  Excellent Customer support, flexibility, cost and ease of ESS for our employees were some of our criteria.

ADDRESSING MCAFEE’S BUSINESS NEEDS

“We did a projected cost analysis over five years, and Megapay costing’s compared well to well-known market leaders.  As Megapay is very easy to use we have reduced our payroll processing times by at least a half day each per payroll run for our 2 UK payrolls & our Irish payroll.The standard Megapay reports are very comprehensive & meet most of our needs; any additional reporting requirements are more than adequately met by Megapay’s Report Writer (standard with Megapay unlike other Payroll Providers whose report writer is an add-on). “

IMPROVING EFFICIENCY

To receive information from HMRC, we were using EDI which is old technology & can be quite cumbersome.  Now everything is a quick download through Megapay without even having to logon to HMRC. Also, Megapay does all the calculations for us. The key features of Megapay for McAfee’s payroll department are; 

  • If a mistake is made, it is very easy to back out.
  • Ease & Flexibility of use.
  • System navigation is simple.
  • HMRC interface.
  • All time-saving features!
