Helping UK manufacturers navigate change

Providing payroll and HR expertise and a service-focused partnership to support your operations.

Looking to stabilise your manufacturing business for success?

Streamlined payroll and HR to deliver ROI - with advice from experts who understand your business.

As a UK manufacturer, you have a lot to contend with right now, with inflationary pressures and rising input costs squeezing profit margins. This all means a renewed focus on cost efficiencies.

Add in recruitment and retention issues leading to staff and skills shortages, and you’re probably struggling to find the right candidates with the right skills.

Our researchshows that 20 percent of staff in the manufacturing industry are ‘often’ paid incorrectly, and disgruntled staff will walk. If your operation needs to finesse its data capture, then simplifying your time and attendance data with a robust payroll at its core will boost accuracy and keep turnover costs down.

We’ll streamline and automate your payroll and HR using award-winning customer support and our experts in payroll, compliance and security. No longer an unloved, backroom function, it's time to make payroll work for you. Use it as a strategic business driver based on data to reduce costs, and enhance performance, productivity and profits.

Is your payroll keeping pace?
Three challenges that are payroll opportunities

Staff and skills shortages

As the cost of living rises, demand for wage rises follow. How do you keep staff engaged and cost-efficient?

Inflationary pressures

With rises in energy prices to the hike in raw materials, a streamlined payroll saves money, time and effort.

Supply chain issues

Disruptions to consumables deliveries may mean onshoring or reshoring - so you’ll need accurate payroll data to inform your decisions.
