2013-09-02 15:29:33 - Market leading business applications and services provider, Advanced Business Solutions (Advanced), is a finalist in the Software Product of the Year category of the Payroll World Awards 2013. The winners will be announced on 24 October at a ceremony at London’s Millennium Hotel, Mayfair.
The Payroll World Awards recognise providers of payroll technology that have delivered significant cost savings and business benefits to clients. The winning business will also have demonstrated unstinting customer service, evidenced through client testimonials.
Advanced has been nominated for its OpenPeople payroll system, that supports all UK payroll procedures including audit, archive, expenses, absences, real-time information (RTI) and pensions auto-enrolment. Westminster Kingsway College, a further education college in London, has been using OpenPeople since 2010 and nominated the solution for the Software Product of the Year award.
Deon Piovesan, Payroll and Pensions Manager at Westminister Kingsway College, said: “I truly hope Advanced wins the award for its OpenPeople solution, which I think is limitlessly flexible. Every time we go to
a payroll update course we are impressed by Advanced’s expertise and customer service - they stand out from the competition.”
OpenPeople has facilitated the College’s introduction of tighter budgetary control. It has allowed staff to simplify their payroll process, removed duplication of payslips and P60s and allowed automatic data entry to HMRC online.
Simon Fowler, Managing Director of Advanced Business Solutions (Commercial) says, “We are tremendously proud that our OpenPeople software has been shortlisted in Payroll World magazine’s annual awards. This is a real endorsement, and one which recognises the high level of customer satisfaction and service we strive for.
“Our functionality-rich payroll and HR applications are developed with the customer in mind and are continually adapted to client need and requirements. Crucially, they not only comply with industry and legislative requirements as demanded by both real-time information and pension auto-enrolment, but they include additional functionality over and above what’s required. This nomination acknowledges that.”
