Kronos has partnered with payroll software provider Payroll Metrics to provide a simplified and unified solution for Australian businesses looking to deliver the “perfect payslip.”

The partnership rounds out the Workforce Ready suite which now offers HR, Payroll, Talent, Rostering, Leave Management and Timekeeping. This partnership is unique to the Australian market, combining 20 years of Kronos experience in Australian workforce and human capital management, with 25 years of Australian payroll experience embodied in Payroll Metrics.

Workforce Ready Payroll powered by Payroll Metrics is an easy-to-use payroll solution, built for payroll experts, by payroll experts. Behind the scenes, both Kronos and Payroll Metrics solutions have proven capabilities to handle complex Australian payroll; however, the simplicity of the total solution makes it particularly appealing to small and medium sized businesses.

Natira Drayton, Head of the Workforce Ready solution for Kronos Australia said: “We saw an unmet need in the Australian Market in 2015 and introduced Workforce Ready. Since that time, we have seen explosive growth and now serve over 100,000 employees across more than 400 organisations. Many of those customers asked, ‘Why don’t you offer payroll?’ A great question. And that’s how the partnership came to be.

Kronos is well known for being the leader in the workforce management industry. The past few years have been an exciting journey as we have included HR, Talent Acquisition, Performance and Compensation modules to our already successful Workforce Ready suite. Adding Payroll enhances our customers’ ability to fully manage the entire employee lifecycle, leaving them more time to focus on what matters most – growing and managing their business.

It was very important to us to work with experts in Australian payroll, who have an appreciation for making complex things simple, streamlined, and easy to use. Payroll Metrics understands and delivers the simplicity promise. Together, our local, award-winning services and support teams empower our customers so they can work their way, work smarter, work in a modern cloud and reach their full business potential,” she said.

Greg McManus, Founder of Payroll Metrics Australia added: “Our background in developing payroll solutions which have processed payroll for thousands of Australian companies for more than two decades has enabled a clear insight into the modern needs of Australian businesses. Paying people accurately and on time is mission critical. The Payroll Metrics solution is specifically designed to make it easy for payroll specialists to automate their processes, reduce processing time, and comply with the complex regulatory requirements of the Australian market. The feedback from our customers has been we are making payroll simple through an intuitive user interface and advanced reporting capabilities.”
