Payroll Implementation Support Package

Developed by Zellis

User and parallel testing support



A Payroll Implementation Support Package to support both the overall project and the in-house payroll team. The package has been designed to cover all aspects of the payroll production element of the project.



Support for in-house teams

Implementing a new payroll system will increase the demands on an already busy payroll team. We can provide people-skilled implementers to undertake planning and testing, supporting your in-house team and giving them time to continue delivering the live payroll.

Project success

Utilising our payroll professionals, skilled in both payroll production and the implementation of ResourceLink, will help secure the success of the project in both outcomes and timelines.

Live production support

As the payroll cuts over to live production, we will provide advice and guidance on the initial payroll runs.
