HM Land Registry selects Symatrix to run its payroll
The implementation enabled Land Registry to maintain the benefits of outsourcing its payroll operations to a trusted partner
Symatrix, a Manchester-based Oracle HCM and ERP partner, today announces that HM Land Registry has chosen its fully managed payroll service, SymplyPay, based on Oracle Cloud Payroll, to deliver accurate, reliable and timely salary payments for its 6,700-strong employee base.
Symatrix is now HM Land Registry’s payroll team, responsible for running and administering the new integrated payroll solution, and for the payroll operation as a whole. This followed hard on the heels of Symatrix participating in a rigorous design and testing process before carrying out parallel runs of existing and new systems.
With the new payroll service now fully implemented, HM Land Registry’s HR data flows seamlessly to the new payroll. Having a single automated system for staff self-service time and absence recording, HR and payroll enables HM Land Registry to keep data fully up-to-date and boost accuracy. This was not possible previously when the organisation had to run two separate systems.
With Symatrix managing the entire payroll process, the use of SymplyPay also enables HM Land Registry to benefit from simplified data checking. To complement this, Symatrix can immediately update the service to account for any legislative changes that occur. This year, it will also provide the government department with full support and resolutions to any technical issues as part of its service.
The project is one example of a growing trend among government organisations to shift towards a single integrated payroll solution to improve efficiencies, with more organisations exploring such services post-pandemic.
“With the introduction of a fully integrated Oracle Cloud payroll into our existing HCM and Finance system, we needed to find a trusted partner to run it. We chose Symatrix because they have built up a track-record in managing client payrolls that sit on the Oracle Cloud. We have taken a ‘one team’ approach throughout the life of the implementation project, meaning that we view Symatrix as a trusted partner”, said Sarah Fisher, Head of HR Services at HM Land Registry.
“We’re uniquely placed as the only partner in the UK that can deliver a fully managed payroll service on top of Oracle Cloud, so we’re delighted to provide this unique offering to HM Land Registry. We will be HMLR’s payroll department, which leaves us best placed to drive continuous improvements in the service,” said Chris Brooks, Managing Director of Symatrix.
