Our success stories

1. Eliminating errors and improving accuracy in the payroll process

A global leader in alternative legal, business and research support services for corporations, law and professional services firms — with a presence across four continents — was facing consistent service issues with its outsourced payroll provider.

The client’s HR and finance departments had to cope with the additional workload caused by errors in the payroll process. Thus, they had to deal with many payroll, investment declarations, leave and attendance management queries. These issues, coupled with the inflexibility of reporting formats, were creating significant stress on the client’s HR team.

TopSource Worldwide, with its comprehensive payroll solution, solved the problems with the payroll and reimbursement process and investment declarations. We provided a fully integrated employee self-service platform called Portico™ so that employees could directly initiate the reimbursement process, submit the investment declarations and manage their leaves online. Portico™ also provided the client’s HR team with ready access to reports along with a customised payroll journal.

The payroll outsourcing services provided by TopSource Worldwide freed up valuable time for the HR and finance departments so that they could focus on their core activities.

2. Removing people’s dependency and creating a robust payroll process

A leading global provider of specialised products and engineering solutions had 1,200 plus employees working across four plants in India. The client was processing payroll in-house, partially automated with a legacy time and attendance system and payroll software.

Maintenance and upgradation of these legacy systems were already difficult, but it started to create more problems when a key member of the payroll team retired. This resulted in risking the entire payroll process as there was no one with complete knowledge of their intricate payroll calculations. The client was unable to implement automated leave and attendance systems, thus requiring a lot of manual effort in synchronising and correcting the data and increasing the risk of errors.

TopSource Worldwide took over the payroll and implemented the automated leave and attendance modules. We also provided onsite assistance to help address all employee queries post payroll. TopSource Worldwide’s Portico™ platform was used by the client for the online submission of investment proofs, which resulted in the complete elimination of paper trails and, thereby, logistical and confidentiality issues.

With the payroll process fully documented and the process handled by experts, TopSource Worldwide effectively de-risked the entire payroll process for the client.
