Why did Thesis call on us?

Thesis is a software company that sells student information systems into colleges and Universities.

As a Head of People & Culture who had never administered payroll before, Julianne Barnes needed an easy-to-use, hassle-free payroll solution that she could pick up and run with straight away. Safe to say, this was a box that PayFit was able to tick.

"The thing I like the most about PayFit is that you don't need to be a payroll be able to come in, pick it up, navigate your way around the system, know what to do and how to do it."

Key to this was having the support of a dedicated implementation consultant who, as Julianne says, ensured that she was "handheld through the process".

"The onboarding process was very was a very supportive, collaborative process. The first payroll run didn't have any issues."

Julianne points to the benefits of PayFit's powerful technology above and beyond merely ensuring smooth payroll processes, which is just one facet of a multi-disciplined role.

"It just streamlines and automates so many things that could typically make this kind of role very admin-heavy and time consuming."

Julianne even found time to give a shoutout to PayFit's now legendary payslips, a feature that everybody at Thesis "loves", calling them the "clearest payslips I've ever come across."

The technology available with PayFit is the best I've ever almost does it for you!

PayFit payroll journals interface

Simple-to-run payroll

As somebody with no prior experience of administering payroll, Julianne loves how straightforward and smooth PayFit makes the whole process. She goes so far as to say that it "almost does it for you."

Powerful automation

Technology is key in freeing up Julianne's time to focus on the most impactful elements of her People role. She cites PayFit as having the power to streamline and automate all of the admin-heavy and time consuming tasks that would otherwise have gotten in the way of achieving that goal.

User-friendly software

The thing that Julianne most loves about PayFit is the fact that you don't need to be a payroll expert to use it, that the interface makes it easy to know what to do, and how to do it.

What benefits have they identified?

Less admin, more time back

HR processes such as running payroll, approving leave and expenses, and performance management campaigns are just some of the "admin-heavy, time consuming" tasks that can weigh down a People & Culture leader. PayFit has helped to streamline and automate much of the groundwork associated with these, freeing up Julianne's time for more strategic work.

Payroll that's run accurately

After a "supportive" and "collaborative" onboarding process with PayFit, Thesis' first payroll run didn't have any issues. Coming after a challenging period spent outsourcing the function, with many complexities and the potential for errors, this was a breath of fresh air for Julianne and her team. It's a trend that continues to this day.

The clearest payslips

PayFit's payslips have quickly become the stuff of legend. Julianne calls them the clearest that she's ever come across, and beams with pride when describing how everybody at Thesis loves them too. It may not sound like much, but being able to give her staff access to easy-to-understand, beautiful payslips makes Julianne's job that little bit easier.
