Zalaris support the University of Warwick with their payroll go-live based on SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Published on

The University of Warwick is a public research university in the UK. Founded in 1965, it now holds over 27,000 students and 9,000 staff members. The payroll go-live at the university had been delayed several times over the last few years, and the university decided to engage with Zalaris to enable them to get across the finish line and get their staff paid accurately.

Zalaris actively supported the university onsite over a 20 week period to ensure the successful delivery. Zalaris have supported processes, provided training, solved payroll errors, validated data, and provided confidence and support to the University of Warwick.

With this incredible partnership, the University of Warwick were able to run their first SAP payroll smoothly and successfully. As a result, the internal team no longer double key HR information, which saves a huge amount of time and effort, as well as reducing inevitable human error relating to data input. During the process, invaluable relationships have been established and feedback regarding Zalaris has been exceptional. With continued support from Zalaris, the University of Warwick will continue to drive successful payroll runs and explore further more ways to transform their HR & payroll processes.

“We’re extremely delighted to have selected Zalaris as our trusted partner to support us with the go-live of our payroll. Zalaris really understood our situation and produced results which not only met but exceeded our exact requirements, which was primarily to ensure our staff are paid accurately and on time. We look forward to further strengthening this partnership with Zalaris moving forward.”, says James Alexander, Deputy-CITO & Director of Strategic Change, University of Warwick.

“Payroll is a mission critical function, this we all can agree; and an incorrect payroll inevitably has a direct impact on the workforce, their engagement and ultimately the credibilty of the organisation. I am overwhelmingly proud to hear in person how happy and impressed the university are with Zalaris and most importantly how the university have been successful in delivering on their mandate, on time, with Zalaris. I look forward to Zalaris supporting the university further with their HR and payroll ambitions.”, says Will Jackson, Managing Director & Executive Vice-President, Zalaris.
