Case Study

Streamlining the Implementation of SAP Payroll Control Center

Using SpinifexIT's Payroll Control Centre and Easy STP for efficient implementation.


A government agency in Australia with more than 1600 employees plans to implement SAP’s Payroll Control Center (PCC) solution.

After making the decision on to implement PCC, the next step was to look for a suitable partner to carry out the implementation.

After evaluating the available options, it was decided that an implementation partner who could expedite the implementation, offer supplementory features, and empower the customer to customize the PCC solution in the future, would be selected.

The Challenge

The Government Agency has been utilizing SAP HXM and Payroll for more than twenty years. Recently, the agency recognized the need to simplify its payroll processing.

The need for change became even more pressing when the agency discovered that its payroll manager was devoting significant time to identifying and investigating issues outside of SAP.

The Agency particularly liked the fact that the SAP solution allows a very defined process for execution of the key steps of Payroll as well as an auditable process for pre-payroll error checking. 

They were aware that SpinifexIT offered a solution to streamline the configuration of the SAP Payroll Control Center and with their Implementation Partner, they looked at the SpinifexIT Easy PCC solution.

After a successful demonstration of SpinifexIT’s Payroll Control Center (PCC) solution for SAP, the agency was highly impressed, leading to the decision to implement it.

This allowed them to:

The Results

After undergoing a successful tender process, SpinifexIT was delighted that the Government Agency decided to purchase its Easy PCC solution to streamline its implementation and deployment of the SAP PCC.

SpinifexIT announces major Strato updates
SpinifexIT announces major Strato updates 1024 752 SpinifexIT

Published via EINNews

The latest Strato release improves compliance with legislative and data privacy requirements and enhances process efficiency, speed, security, and user experience.

Customers of Strato, the innovative document generation solution from SpinifexIT, can now benefit from significant enhancements to the platform, including improved data privacy compliance through Strato Storage, the company announced today. Strato enables smart HR and Payroll document generation and automated communications directly from SAP SuccessFactors to help SAP customers make the most of their SAP investment.

The new updates include SpinifexIT’s latest version of Strato Storage, which enables HR teams to easily and securely view, store and retrieve documents, letters, and forms from the cloud.

This latest Strato release – Strato 1.19 – substantially improves storage and document retention, and legislative and data privacy compliance, enables dynamic number formatting, and allows customers to improve process efficiency and build custom forms.

The new features include:

Expanded compliance and document retention options in Strato Storage

SpinifexIT’s Strato Storage allows users to quickly store HXM documents.  

Compliance with document legislative and data privacy obligations

A key improvement in the latest version is enhanced compliance with document legislative and data privacy obligations. Strato Storage now allows users to retain and access documents relating to employees with pending claims, disputes, or litigation issues, even after employees have left the company.  Strato Storage is aligned with global and local legislation across data retention and privacy requirements such as GDPR.

Easier Document Retrieval

Since its initial release, SpinifexIT has significantly expanded and improved the Strato Storage functionality, including integrating Strato Storage across automated workflows, to make finding documents easier. 

Compatible with SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, Talent, and Employee Central, Strato Storage integrates fully with Strato Documents and Strato Automate, allowing organizations to embed it into their existing Strato investment at the click of a button. 

The new functionality included in Strato 1.19 allows for better document tagging and categorizing files within Strato Storage.  SpinifexIT will also add improved search functionality in the second half of 2022.

Single Screen View

Strato storage offers a flexible, centralized, single-screen view of all available documents in relevant folders across every SAP Successfactors module via the Strato dashboard from the SAP SuccessFactors home page, including job offer letters and contracts for both HR teams as well as employees when allocated the necessary self-service access.

Strato administrators can also assign permissions to employees so they can easily upload their documents to complete their digital Personnel file in Strato Storage, and also download them, in a fully protected environment compliant with major data security protocols using the latest data encryption.

Strato update quote by Greg Tutt

In addition to improvements to the Strato Storage module, SpinifexIT has introduced a number of other improvements to the Strato Suite. These include:

Dynamic number formatting in Strato Documents

Creating documents with multiple clauses is now much simpler in Strato 1.19. Previously, Strato users could only enumerate document clauses using a conventional numbering format. With this new release, document designers can enumerate clauses and add sub-clauses while applying business rules to show or hide specific content – especially useful when creating contracts and other legal documents that require multiple stipulations.

Improved process efficiency across the Strato Suite

This latest Strato release enables customers to include more actions into their custom workflow to further expedite the document management process. For example, users now have the option to strengthen data privacy compliance by setting automated document expiry and deletion dates, and automatically deactivate terminated employees. They can also integrate Strato with third-party applications such as CRMs and internal ticketing systems.

Gregory Tutt, Strato Global Architect at SpinifexIT says, “We’re thrilled to share with you the latest updates across the Strato Suite. Our focus for this release is the improvement of the security and compliance aspects of Strato Storage which provides organizations with a more secure and streamlined way to manage their employee documents. Aside from this, we’ve also made enhancements to improve Strato’s speed, security, and ease of use.

We are committed to our goal of making Strato the preferred solution for SAP SuccessFactors customers to manage their employee documents and storage. This is only the first of a number of major enhancements we will deliver over the coming months.”


The new Strato release will be available to customers on July 9 2022. Visit the Strato Website for more information or purchase Strato directly from the SAP Store

SpinifexIT announces Easy Suite updates to help customers maximize their SAP investment
SpinifexIT announces Easy Suite updates to help customers maximize their SAP investment 1024 752 SpinifexIT

Published via EINNews

Today, SpinifexIT announces significant updates to its Easy Suite solutions which helps customers accelerate payroll migration to the cloud, de-risk SAP Employee Central Payroll implementations, improve SAP Payroll Control Center configuration abilities, and enhance the creation of robust SAP Payroll and SAP SuccessFactors reports.

The Easy Suite solutions include Easy Reporter, Easy PCC, Easy Migration, and Easy Go Live among others, and are designed to expedite migration for customers implementing SAP Employee Central Payroll or migrating to Employee Central Payroll or S/4HANA.

New features to the Easy Suite range announced today include:

Payroll Reporting and Reconciliation

SpinifexIT’s payroll and reconciliation products, including Easy Reporter and Easy PCC, help customers improve payroll reporting, error analysis, reconciliation, and employee inquiry resolution. They also enhance flexibility and access to SAP SuccessFactors fields while building custom reports with the Easy Reporter web reporting solution.

In addition, they help speed up the SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central data copying processes and implementation and configuration of SAP Payroll Control Center.

Easy PCC accelerates implementation and allows re-use of many existing Easy Reporter reports to help customers who are planning to implement the Payroll Control Center migrate to the new environment. It also provides additional functionality for specific HR and payroll scenarios – all without having to create custom code.

Easy Reporter improvements

SpinifexIT Easy Reporter has now been enhanced with new advanced Exception Reporting and the ability to execute multiple reports in one run. It now includes more customer SAP SuccessFactors data, such as new time-related fields and SF data, and allows users to set their preferred date selection to build more accurate, complete reports with the SuccessFactors Connector.

Migration Solutions

SpinifexIT migration solutions are designed to streamline and transform cloud implementation and migration. Easy Migration and Easy Go Live are two powerful solutions that offer huge time savings and substantially reduce cost and effort required for payroll transformation for SAP Employee Central Payroll customers.

Easy Migration improvements

With the enhanced SpinifexIT Easy Migration, users can now easily add their own tables (including Z tables). It also allows better control over what configuration is copied between systems and options for remapping the configuration during the copy.

Easy Go Live improvements

SpinifexIT’s Easy Go Live’s improved parallel run screens and new drag-and-drop functionality make setting up this activity much easier and more intuitive. The new features for a Parallel Run enable the grouping of data into Teams for better investigation, and improve audit logs as well as control over flowing raised issues from run to run. In addition, customers can now use Easy Go Live to upload SAP Infotype data directly from a flat file.

Remote Activation

In addition to the Easy Suite enhancements announced today, SpinifexIT is also offering its customers the option of activating 2022.R1 remotely via an activation key. SpinifexIT officially supports release versions for 15 months after the first release date.

Darren Souter, SpinifexIT Co-Founder and Global Solutions Architect, says, “We’re committed to continue to build on our solutions to further help our customers streamline their SAP HXM Solutions. As well as streamlining many day-to-day operational tasks, our software has continued to help support our customers with their journey to the Cloud.

“With over 60 SAP implementation Partners using the Easy Suite solutions to accelerate implementations and migrations, many of our customers tell us our solutions have saved them hundreds of hours, and dramatically cut down the time, effort, and cost spent on their migration and transformation projects. With continued investment, the Easy Suite solutions are equipped to include the latest tools to support our customers’ needs and improve their user experience so they can truly maximize their SAP investment.”

Strato 1.17 – Going live this August!

We are pleased to announce the release of our latest update for Strato. Strato 1.17 includes new features around its workflow, dashboard, and storage functionality which further optimize your SAP SuccessFactors document generation.

Strato 1.17 will be deployed for UAT on August 29, 2021 and will go live on Production by mid-September. You may view the release calendar here.

New tools to extend SAP SuccessFactors document automation and compliance capabilities

Expedite your document’s routing, approval and e-signing process by setting time-based conditions in your Strato Workflow.

Trigger email reminders, automatically accept or reject changes and documents, and execute a corresponding workflow immediately after without any manual intervention.


• Auto-approve a Job Offer Letter on behalf of the Manager before proceeding with sending it to the Candidate

• Add an automated email reminder for a Candidate if they have not yet signed their Job Offer two days after receiving the letter. 

• Auto-reject the Job Offer Letter and stop the Recruitment Workflow process if the Candidate does not Accept / Reject the Job Offer Letter five days from its issue date

Improve your Data Privacy Compliance (GDPR, etc.) by adding document archiving and deletion automations.

Strato Storage can now allow Administrators to automatically change a document’s status based on their validity, expiry, and compliance laws.


• Automatically archive Performance Documents from two years ago

• An option to delete the digital documents of employees who are no longer in the company for 1 year

• Tag a document (Passport, ID, Visa) as “expired” once it gets past its validity date and send an automatic prompt to the Employee to renew 

Attach supporting documents into your approval workflow. HR may also attach PDF files to a document being sent for routing and e-signature.

This enables them to provide their recipients and signatories with the full information in line with the document they are reviewing and signing.


• Include a PDF copy of the Job Description alongside the Job Offer Letter for signature

• Attach the past Performance Evaluation results of an employee when routing the new Performance Forms to the Manager and Employee

• Append a new Total Compensation Statement alongside the Merit Increase acceptance process

Improve your HXM document generation and employee experience

Generate documents using the employee’s ‘pending’ data to aid during your Employee Movements and Change of Compensation discussions. Have the ability to show the employee their new Position Title, Compensation and Benefits package during your discussion.

Empower them to decide with the right information on hand before making it official. Integrate this process seamlessly into your workflow in this release.

Here’s how this feature works at a basic level.

Likewise, once the pending data has been approved in SAP SuccessFactors even for future effectivity, employees may generate a version of their documents that show their new information- as long as it has already been approved. 


• An employee is due for an increase on October 1, 2021. The increase has been approved as early as today, but will only reflect on the employee’s paycheck in October.

• Extend your managers’ reach. Allow people managers to generate documents both for their direct and indirect reports. 

• Integrate Strato with other 3rd party apps. Enable Strato to send and store a document in your CRM system (Salesforce, etc.), other parts of SAP SuccessFactors, or via SAP Archive Link.

SpinifexIT blog Are you ready for saps stp deployment
Are you ready for SAP’s STP Deployment?
Are you ready for SAP’s STP Deployment? 1024 512 SpinifexIT

In my previous blog, I’ve shared some of my views about SAP’s Single Touch Payroll (STP) solution and some considerations to keep in mind whilst implementing it to your existing payroll process.

For today’s entry, I will share some technical details for SAP’s STP solution which includes its minimum system requirements, configuration and implementation.

SAP have been talking about the upcoming STP solution and its system requirements in the past 12 months, and now that it’s almost here, it is confirmed that customers are indeed required to be on a minimum SAP HR Support Pack Level in order to load up this new solution.

For customers who are a long way behind on their SAP version, now is the time to start planning for this work. The table below gives you a guide on the minimum level you need to be in based on your existing SAP release. In all cases, the May 10th sync point is the minimum HR level requirement.

Additional Requirements

SAP is delivering the STP solution to their customers as part of their normal upgrade process. However, this is not the complete solution as does not include the ability to physically transmit the file to the ATO via a secure encrypted process.

In order to meet this requirement, additional functionality will be required. SAP’s recommended approach is to use their SAP Cloud Platform Integration (SCPI) solution. You may learn more about SCPI and check out their standard pricing here.  However SAP have agreed on special pricing to enable customers to quickly migrate to STP.  You should speak to your sales representative or partner to discuss this further.

While the ATO does not require the use of SCPI, organisations are expected to comply with its requirement: transmissions and communication should be secure and encrypted following the EbMS3/AS4 protocol. Should you decide to take up SCPI, you will likely need a Test and Production SCPI system as the minimum requirement.

As you can see, the few steps listed above can quickly start to be a larger project. For most customers, this will involve preparing for the following requirements:

Development Environment

The development environment is where you will initially install the system upgrades and configure the new STP solution. The following gives you some high-level guidelines of what will need to be done here.

  • Upgrade system to minimum HR Support levels
  • Install STP solution.  NOTE: If you upgrade the system to the latest HRSP level, then you will not need to install a separate STP update
  • Modify your Schemas, Wagetypes, ABN Details and Setup connections to the SAP Cloud Platform Integration solution
  • Development Unit Testing of the above
  • Test Migration of Clusters to create new STP data
  • Testing of the Payroll runs
  • Testing of the STP Data Creation Reports
  • Once happy with the solution, plan to migrate these changes to Test

Test Environment

The Test environment is where you can test the STP solution with more up to date employee data. It would be a good idea to factor in a copy of your production environment prior to commencing this project so that you can test the entire process including the payroll results conversion on your recent (2019) data. Otherwise, you may be needing to create test data to simulate what will occur in production.

  • Copy the production system or Clone data from production (If you have a tool to do this)
  • Upgrade the environment to the latest support packs (As per development)
  • Import configuration transports
  • Conversion of the payroll clusters
  • Test the STP file creation process
  • Setup of the SAP Cloud Platform Integration solution and liking this to test
  • Test the encrypted transmission to the ATO
  • Test the execution of Payroll runs
  • Retest the STP file creation
  • Retest the transmission to the ATO

Production – Go Live

Once everything is completely tested, you will then have the option to go live with STP.  This will often be done across a weekend as there is the need to upgrade the SAP environment, convert the payroll clusters and perform some additional testing. During go live, you will have steps such as the following:

  • Upgrade the environment to the latest support packs
  • Import Configuration Transports
  • Convert the Payroll Clusters to be ready for STP
  • Perform Additional Testing

The remaining steps then will be part of your normal payroll process.  For example: Next payroll run, you will create the first STP file for transmission to the ATO and transmit it.  

Upgrading your HR Support packs as well as configuring and testing STP may not be a huge change but it will involve some time and effort to complete. Planning ahead is vital to streamline this process. As part of this preparation, we recommend that you also look into the following key activities:

  • Review and modify your payroll business process
  • Plan for your STP project’s resource with consideration to variables such as configuration, data validation, testing reporting, and finalisation
  • Check your SAP HR support pack level and planning for the upgrade if required
  • Explore and finalise your file transmission options:
  • SAP Cloud Platform Integration (SCPI) is the easiest option
  • You can also explore the services provided by your clearing house such as Click Super and Plum
  • Find out more about ATO compliant gateways

Upgrading the HR Support Packs can also bring in a lot of new functionality on top of the STP solution. This may also require more extensive testing to ensure that there will be no impact on your production payroll.

So, here’s Part 2 of my 3-part blog series. Once again, if you’d like to view Part 1, click hereWe’re publishing Part 3 next week, where I’ll talk about the importance of STP reconciliation and how SpinifexIT’s Easy STP solution can make this process faster, better & easier.

Are you a current Easy Payment Summaries user?

We’ve got great news for you! You can avail of our Easy STP upgrade for absolutely NO COST! Our Easy STP solution will be available after October 11, 2018 once SAP releases their STP solution.
