SAP payroll customers’​ top strategy is to keep “a single point of truth”​ 626 272 SpinifexIT

In a recent SAPInsider survey focusing on Payroll and its impact on Cloud HR, it was identified that 79% of responses saw that the top strategy for payroll customers was to ensure that their payroll solution was the single point of truth.

Coming in behind was to have a solution that keeps the system up to date with Tax and Regulatory changes

The 3rd Strategic Requirement was to ensure the company maintained a team with the skillset for maintaining the payroll solution (in-house). In 4th place, was to ensure that a global strategy for reporting was in place.

Requirements: Key figures

Of these Strategies, the 2nd and 3rd make sense. However, they are more expectations for a global payroll solution. 

For example, you would expect that the system software can be easily updated with the latest Tax and Regulatory Changes. You also would need to ensure that you have staff to maintain the system. Luckily, for the customers running SAP Payroll, the Tax and Regulatory updates are just part of the day-to-day deliverables that come with supporting over 10,000 Payroll customers.  

It is even simpler for the customers who have moved, or are moving to Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll. For this group of companies, they will know that these systems are updated on regular schedules by SAP. This means that there will be less dependency on internal staff to apply the technical software updates.

A Single Integrated HR/Payroll solution combined with Global Reporting can drive true efficiency and visibility across your organization.

The Top Strategy can be realized by keeping a single integrated HR/Payroll solution. This will provide a common platform for engaging employees, streamlining processes and keeping consistent reporting across the entire organization. 

This alone has driven the transition of many customers over the last few decades to SAP HCM. This is because they have often merged many different payroll and HR systems together into a single ERP solution. 

It is also not surprising that the 4th most important strategy is to focus on Global Payroll Reporting and Analytics

This point goes hand in hand with maintaining a single point of truth, as maintaining a single system allows for much easier global reporting. Many customers have driven their global HR strategy on these two areas to allow a central single place for all HR/Payroll reporting.

SAP Solutions

Luckily, the SAP solutions, whether it is Employee Central with Employee Central Payroll, Employee Central integrated with On-Premise, or customers using On-Premise (Which is still the majority of the SAP customers), allows for customers to maintain an integrated Payroll and HR Solution.  

SAP is among the few companies with a global system that can service as many countries in regards to payroll. This, by default, allows customers to maintain a single payroll solution. Many other vendors have a comprehensive collection of countries that they can support for HR, but payroll is complex. With over 30 years in this area, SAP takes the cake as they have, and continues to service thousands of global customers.

Global Reporting is one of the areas that SpinifexIT has focused on for over 15 years. We constantly see customers who want to take advantage of years of data to provide insights into their own organization. This also includes being able to access the day-to-day payroll transactional data. SpinifexIT’s Easy Reporter is a purpose built tool to address your day to day reporting challenges.

Recently, a research survey was conducted by SAPinsider across a large number of SAP HCM customers. Out of this were many interesting findings, and over the coming weeks, I will share some of these with you.

One of the more surprising numbers was related to the plans for moving from the On-Premise solution. As many of you would be aware, SAP has now determined that the current SAP On-Premise ECC solution will be supported until 2027 (with extended paid support until 2030). This gives only 6 years of time to make a decision on what to do and to actually then move to an alternative solution.

As you can see from the following survey result, just over 60% of customers have no plans to do anything for the moment and to remain on-premise.

Approximately 25% are planning to move to the cloud, which means they will migrate to the Employee Central Payroll (ECP) platform. With this number and the 60% continuing to make no decision, the SAP Payroll Platform remains a very powerful and good option for most customers – especially those who have international Payrolls with multiple countries needing to be paid.

The remainder of these customers will be looking to outsource their payroll to one of the other payroll vendors. 

This, however, doesn’t mean the customers are moving away from SAP, as many of the vendors out there are using the SAP Payroll Solution as the base of their outsourced payroll offering.

From this chart, I can make a few additional observations

  • The insight here is that the SAP Payroll remains a robust and future-proofed solution with the majority of customers not planning to move away from this solution.
  • The vast majority of customers are wanting to keep payroll processing in-house. I believe for many customers, this makes sense as the core business rules and knowledge around the payroll remains close to the business

I feel that many of the customers who are undecided may make more concrete decisions over the coming months or years, once SAP releases more details about the options for migration to the S/4HANA solution for those who want to remain on-premise (this solution will be supported by SAP through to 2040).

This is just one part of the SAPinsider Report, so I would highly recommend reading this to understand the market better and to even compare your own situation to other SAP customers. There is no cost to receive this report, you just have to register.

Stay tuned for Part 2 of the SAPinsider Survey insights series!

I have been in payroll for over 30 years and I love my job because every day is different.

It is always busy and never boring.

3. In what ways have SpinifexIT solutions help you run perfect payrolls?

Spinifex has saved countless hours of agonizing troubleshooting, report runtime, and data manipulation on a regular basis.

The finished product is always accurate, runs in a fraction of the time it takes for other report writers, and is in the format that is needed for various end users of the data. A report created for the Census Bureau has saved days of balancing work that was required when the data was pulled using other tools. The Employee counts and amounts were right the first time!

Rizing and SpinifexIT Announce Partnership to Streamline the Move to SAP Successfactors Employee Central Payroll

RIZING DEEPENS PAYROLL OFFERINGS BY INTEGRATING SPINIFEXIT’S EASY MIGRATION TO OPTIMIZE TRANSFORMATION TO CLOUD, ACCELERATE TIMELINES AND DE-RISK THE END-TO-END PROCESS

STAMFORD, Conn., May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Rizing and SpinifexIT today announced the deepening of their partnership to empower customer success with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. Under the partnership, Rizing will strengthen the capabilities of their Upgrade2Success program with the capabilities of SpinifexIT’s Easy Migration to automate the transition of SAP on-premise Payroll to SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. Rizing’s technical expertise and payroll acumen will integrate with SpinifexIT technology to accelerate timelines and de-risk SAP customers’ movement to cloud.


Rizing’s long-standing history with SAP on-premise Payroll combined with experience in leading Employee Central Payroll implementations worldwide provides customers with a reliable methodology for transformation to SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll. This Employee Central Payroll offering from Rizing will avoid many of the challenges of moving payroll to cloud, which most customers view as a complete re-implementation of payroll.

The union of Rizing’s experience with SpinifexIT’s Easy Migration product automates the movement of both the on-premise configuration and employee data to Employee Central Payroll, including all history and payroll results. Rizing’s payroll experts will use Easy Migration to move the configuration, migrate employee data, and verify payroll accuracy across systems.

“This approach does away with the need for a design and build phase, which immediately makes the transformation to cloud more cost-effective. But the icing on the cake is having the insight and the right tools to remove the risk of moving your on-premise payroll to Employee Central Payroll,” says Luc Hédou, CEO of HCM at Rizing.

“Rizing is a premier SAP partner in the world when it comes to implementing SuccessFactors® payroll,” said Darren Pithie, Co-Founder and CEO of SpinifexIT. “The Rizing team partnered with us as we developed the Easy Migration solution, bringing their extensive payroll expertise and diligent testing capabilities to bear on the resulting product. We’re excited about bringing this solution to market and supporting the SAP SuccessFactors Upgrade2Success Program.”

Rizing, an SAP professional services firm with over 350 certified SAP SuccessFactors consultants, also partners with SpinifexIT to deliver Rizing’s Synchrony Payroll, a cloud offering aimed at the small and mid-sized market. Synchrony Payroll is packaged with the SpinifexIT Easy Suite of products, including Reporter, Clone and PCC. With the inclusion of the Easy Migration offering, Rizing has the technology and talent to deliver optimal solutions that fit the size and model of all businesses and across all geographies.

SpinifexIT, an SAP Partner, has a strong portfolio of certified products for SAP SuccessFactors HR, Talent, and Employee Central Payroll. These products naturally support the Easy Migration offering. Easy Migration automatically identifies and moves country-specific configuration to the Employee Central Payroll system, which is currently available in 46 countries. Likewise, Employee data is automatically detected and copied to the new Employee Central Payroll system.
