Las Vegas (17th September 2019). iXerv the global HR & Payroll professional services company, today announced the launch of Punch™, its packaged solution based around the market leading SAP SuccessFactors™ suite.
The company, which has built its reputation on expert consultancy and support of the Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll modules, has designed a Software as a Service package that includes a number of extensions that enhance the core set-up. This creates a single solution that can bring a globally dispersed workforce together on one centrally managed platform, without becoming cost prohibitive.
The solution combines Core HR, Onboarding, Collaboration and any one of the other SAP SuccessFactors Talent modules. Further, it incorporates direct and single sign on access to SAP on premise payroll, Employee Central Payroll, and iXerv’s own cloud native Punch Payroll designed for the smaller longtail satellites or remote geographies. This is implemented and deployed via streamlined best practice processes developed using iXerv’s extensive experience.
As well as significantly reducing implementation costs and time to value, iXerv spreads the total investment in the solution across a unique “pay as you go” consumption model, which will expand the market appeal.
Chris Els, Head of Product Innovation at iXerv explains: “SAP SuccessFactors is without doubt the gold standard when it comes to payroll & HR . However, the longtail of smaller employee populations becomes a difficult problem to manage and an expensive per head cost. Most enterprise solutions also only focus on a select core set of countries and leave the balance to be managed through complex vendor relationships. Often this creates a messy patchwork of disparate local solutions or services that don’t reconcile easily for central reporting, and which introduces security issues that in today’s more regulatory world are an unacceptable risk”.
He continues: ”We are introducing a proprietary payroll solution that works as an extension to Employee Central, allowing employees within its core database to have their localized legislation and tax rules applied at point of processing, and is compliant with every tax authority country in the world. The solution has the power to run any size payroll, but its purpose is to fill those smaller gaps.”
CEO of iXerv, Vikram Bhagdev highlighted the affordability aspect of the total solution: “Punch is the first solution of its kind for the cloud market, bringing the benefits of centralized management and a pay as you go consumption model. Not only does this appeal to the traditional SAP market, but also makes it a realistic option for those mid-tier global organizations with small satellite offices that might previously have thought SAP SuccessFactors was out of their price range. We think its really going to break down some of those barriers and make a real impact.”
He enthuses: “Customer experience and success is at the core of our philosophy at iXerv. We have combined the easy and affordable consumption model of the cloud with enhancements to the core modules of an already popular technology and the experience of IXerv’s people to deliver a “knockout” solution for the market.”
iXerv chose SAP SuccessConnect in Las Vegas to officially unveil Punch, although it operates in several regions globally, where the solution will be available. Enquiries should be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org
