Ceridian UK and Ireland, has won the Technology Award for its mobile app at the 2014 Payroll World Awards. In the judges' citation, it was stated that the technology had halved pay queries.
David Woodward, chief product and marketing officer, at Ceridian UK and Ireland said:
We are delighted to have won the Technology Award at the 2014 Payroll Awards for launching what we believe to be the most functionally rich mobile app in the industry.
"The judges were particularly impressed with the payslip functionality and the interactive help tools of the app. Mobile functionality has been a key focus of our product development this year as we continue to extend our reputation for transformative technology. Ceridian has developed a new mobile app that is extremely functionally rich. With people in the UK on average spending more than eight hours on their mobile phones, we wanted to ensure our customers got the best possible experience. This in turn helps to raise the profile of our customer's payroll teams."
The functionality of the new mobile app includes:
. View your payslip in a mobile phone friendly way - the dynamic features provide users with interactive tooltips to explain pay elements. (Ceridian customers have seen pay queries halved by this functionality alone)
. Submitting holiday requests
. Viewing and updating personal details: name, marital status, nationality, address and contact details
. Approving requests such as holidays (for managers)
. Team calendar - the ability to view your team's holidays in a calendar to help determine availability prior to approving holidays
. Extensible - much of the existing functionality within the Ceridian HRevolution suite of payroll, pensions and HR can be mobile enabled.
The benefits of the app include:
. Increased productivity - completing tasks 'on the go' saves time
. Increased employee engagement - employees want to be able to interact with their employer using their phone in the same way they do for checking email, using facebook, tweeting etc.
. Further decreased pay queries - the deployment of the Ceridian HRevolution online payslip has decreased pay queries by over 50 per cent. Now on a mobile, access is even easier making payroll teams yet more productive.
At the same awards, Lisa Brew, payroll executive at Ceridian UK, was highly commended in the Payroll World 'Rising Star Award' 2014.
The Payroll World Awards, now in their fourth year, reward best practice and professional excellence in the payroll sector.
