Rolling pay and HR into one

PETERBOROUGH chartered accountants Rawlinsons has launched Rawlinsons Payroll and HR Limited, a joint venture company with Peterborough-based software provider Cirrus in order to offer an integrated one-stop shop combining HR and Payroll software together with practical advice and service solutions.

Rawlinsons director Ken Craig said, “We have identified a market need for cost effective payroll bureau services aligned with leading edge HR software and consultation services. Working closely with our colleagues at Cirrus, who have developed DART, a streamlined HR and Payroll software solution, will give new impetus and allow us to offer economical additional services to our clients.”

Fellow director Andrew Linford added, “I believe we have a first class product in our DART software solution and I am truly delighted to announce our joint venture with Rawlinsons, a firm which enjoys such a high profile and reputation. In forming Rawlinsons Payroll and HR Limited, we have created a seamless and robust opportunity to provide clients with payroll bureau services, reliable HR software and first class support services.

“In the present financial climate we understand that our clients are conscious of the need for careful management and strict cost control aligned to maintaining high levels of service to staff and customers. Our solution is designed to help them achieve this by providing a quality low cost solution”.

April 6 sees the start of the new payroll year and so now would be a good time for businesses to consider outsourcing the payroll function and improving their HR systems, says Rawlinsons.
