Stewarts Care chose the corporate payroll software, MegaPay by SD Worx, formerly Intelligo, to manage the payroll for over 900 employees.
Stewarts is a voluntary organisation providing comprehensive community based services to people with an intellectual disability since its foundation in 1869. Working with service users and their families, they are committed to developing a broad range of services and supports that help to ensure happy and healthy lifestyles and quality experiences to 775 adults and children.
In addition to the care, education and vocational training provided through statutory funding, Stewarts strives to present optimum lifestyle choices in the areas of recreation, arts, sport and cultural opportunities which present real choices to service users.
Sharon O’Connor, Finance Data Coordinator of Stewarts Care, commented on their choice to move to MegaPay: “Before the installation of MegaPay our payroll processing was outsourced. In order to achieve more data control, time and cost saving benefits, research was undertaken into software providers who had a current foothold in the Health Sector.
Testimonials and site visits were used to further the project. The positive feedback and subsequent consultation process informed our decision to go with MegaPay.”
Sharon added: “Key features for Stewarts Care include timesheet import from our Time and Attendance system, the ability to upload data to MegaPay and export data to Excel for further analysis outside of the system.
Both these functions represent time and cost savings to the organization. Electronic payslips and end of year forms also save on printing costs and time. The user friendly front end to SQL reports is another feature which is valuable to our requirements.”
Stewarts Care noted some of the main key features since making the move to MegaPay:
• More control over data processing.
• Annual Statutory changes are guaranteed ensuring compliance.
• Changes to the public sector pay agreements are accommodated with minimum disruption.
• Costing analysis reports and nominal integration are just two of the many areas that assist in the management of a very large payroll budget.
• The level of support provided is excellent.
• Turnaround time and accessibility to support is vital.
