What our Customers Say:

ayroll in order to have an integrated administration system enabling us to utilise the benefits including reduced administration and enabling our Pensioner members to gain a more enhanced member self-service system where they can access their payslips and P60’s.

The migration process was clearly detailed in project plans produced by Heywood, and regular conference calls enabled us to ensure we were focussing on the right areas at the right time. The support and knowledge of the Payroll consultants was excellent and helped us ensure we could get the system built correctly and use it effectively. There are scripts written to help identify anything needed!

Now we are live on the system we are already experiencing the benefits of reduced administration, including quicker processing of cases due to having an integrated system, and the monthly payroll cycle is clear, quick and reliable! Our Pensioner members are also enjoying being able to view their details online and interact with us more. We’d recommend Altair payroll if you’re thinking of changing payroll systems.
