Xtra-vision was founded in 1979 and is presently owned by an Irish investment group called Birchhall Investments. Xtra-vision is Ireland’s largest chain of DVD rental/retail stores. The company offers DVD, Blu-ray disc movies and games for both rental and retail. Also, they also sell music, CDs, Camera’s, DVD players and other consumer electronic items. They currently employ 950 staff in Ireland and over 300 in Northern Ireland across 170 stores in both locations.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT SYSTEM
According to Michelle O’Toole, Payroll Manager for Xtra-vision, “We have been using Megapay for our ROI payroll since the mid-1980s. We have always received a very high standard of attention and training from the support and development staff. Because of this level of care, we sourced the UK payroll software directly from Intelligo and didn’t look elsewhere.”
“We were so impressed with the UK version of Megapay that we recently updated to this along with Intelligo’s Employee Self Service Module. This allows staff to log online, view/print current & historical payslips, P60S, edit their contact and bank details, plus much more. This new process has made such a difference to the weekly routine and has saved so much time, including the cost of printing payslips and distribution.”
ADDRESSING XTRA-VISION’S BUSINESS NEEDS
“Megapay is now in place for our UK and ROI payrolls. We find it a very up to date, easy to use payroll package and can compile any information required by our Finance Dept at the touch of a button. The ability to collect additional information from the different company software systems, such as time and attendance, finance, etc., has allowed us to automate as much manual work as possible.”
MEGAPAY’S MAIN KEY FEATURES INCLUDE:
- Automated Timesheet Imports: Simple timesheet input means less time is spent on data entry.
- Lay-out of Screens: The layout of Megapay is really concise and easy to follow; the software is very user-friendly.
- Reporting: I have detailed analysis of employee working hours for pay and management processes at the touch of the button.
- Support Desk: I have been working with the same support staff since we started using Megapay, this speaks for itself!
“Being with Intelligo for such a long time, it is reassuring when you hear the same voices on the help desk. The staff are very friendly, always helpful. You do feel like you belong to a group of people who try to make your job somewhat easier in a climate where more demands are being placed on payroll staff.”
