Many organisations are outsourcing key business functions such as payroll in an attempt to maintain business as usual during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now more than ever, the pressure is on payroll bureaux to ensure they meet the growing demands of their clients.

However, this is where the predicament starts. Your payroll bureau is the same as any other business, it’s a team of people who are at just as much risk as everyone else.

Why are payroll bureaux at risk?

The added pressure of client dependency and the current economic climate means that bureaux must start being proactive to avoid business disruption.

However, as most payroll solutions are desktop-based, payroll bureaux are often bound to their office.

As service providers, reputation is everything.

Actions have to be made, otherwise a delayed payroll could spell disaster for bureaux and their clients alike.

If you’re unable to provide your key service during uncertain times, the relationship you have with customers will plummet, potentially resulting in lost business and even impacting your chances with prospects.

As for your customers, by not processing their payroll correctly you could be severely impacting their employees’ financial wellness while also damaging their working relationship.

What can bureaux do to avoid business disruption?

There is a way for bureaux to continue as normal during these uncertain times and that’s the cloud.

By hosting your bureau on the cloud, staff can utilise a virtual desktop, enabling them to work from anywhere at any time with just a laptop and internet connection.
