Technology Advancement: Technology is helping erase errors, reducing the number of payroll issues encountered. For example, 68.6% of Irish companies surveyed for the SD Worx Payroll Proficiency report say available technologies make data collection easier. Luckily, payroll software has developed in such a way that it can take over complex payroll processes; 64% of Ireland-based respondents surveyed said technology helped with their preparation, management, and distribution of payroll. This, in turn, removes manual input and leads to fewer mistakes and more data driven insights.

Combining Systems: There is a clear trend for companies in Ireland to combine through integration internal and external systems and technology in their payroll process. For instance, 64.7% of companies surveyed for the Payroll Proficiency Index stated that available technologies and systems make payroll processing easier.

Payroll Outsourcing: Over half (55%) of companies stated that cooperation with an external payroll service provider makes payroll processing easier. The report found that outsourcing payroll to an external provider boasted a range of benefits for companies, particularly when it came to costs.
