Philippine BPO CBE Chooses PayrollHero


We just received a great testimonial from a Philippine BPO (read: outsourcing company) that came to us as their previous solution was not accurate and they were in need of a change. Check out what their HR Director had to say about PayrollHero:

“CBE Companies currently employs over 1,200 people in seven locations globally. Its corporate headquarters is located in Cedar Falls, Iowa, with two additional facilities in Waterloo, Iowa, and additional facilities in Overland Park, Kansas; Haverhill, Massachusetts, New Braunfels, Texas and Manila, Philippines.
CBE was in search for a new payroll provider. Our previous payroll provider was a 3rd-party organization that assisted us with end to end payroll and accounting. CBE needed a more transparent payroll process which prompted us to look for a new payroll platform and found PayrollHero.

PayrollHero is not only our payroll provider, but we use them for time, attendance, scheduling, human resources information system and business intelligence. PayrollHero’s onboarding process was effective in not only making the transition smooth and painless, but our payroll is completely error free. We no longer have complaints from employees, in fact, we have employees telling us how much they love the selfie clock-in and the real time data. This new transparency was needed.

I would not hesitate to recommend PayrollHero to other BPOs in the Philippines.”

Start 2015 On The Right Foot; BIR Alphalist

bir alphalist 2316As we get closer to the end of the third quarter companies start looking at their plans for 2015. One of the big items they look at is their payroll. Having a single platform for your payroll for a calendar year makes many things easier, but specifically makes the payroll administrator’s life easier when it comes to the AlphaList.

The AlphaList contains all of the names of employees, how much income they have been paid, how much withholding tax has been charged, etc. It is a digital file that is sent to the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) of the Philippines every year. The problem is, if a company has been using multiple payroll platforms throughout the year the job of creating the alphalist becomes very manual and tedious.

If you are looking at making a change to your payroll solution, then now is the time to do it. At PayrollHero, it takes a few of pay cycles to get a new client up and running on our platform. We have a very detailed, deliberate onboarding and training process that ensures success. If you would like to learn more, contact us now and we can run you through how we do things and work to learn more about your company and your needs.

Introducing Daily Pulse; Insight Through the Wisdom of Your Entire Workforce

The first new feature to come out of the PayrollHero Lab is Daily Pulse. One of the things we noticed in many of our clients businesses was how the feedback loop worked within the company. Managers report about their teams to their immediate bosses and those bosses reported to their direct boss. The feedback was sometimes quite biased and it was not the whole story. We wanted to find ways to get feedback from the team to management in a quick and easy way.

Introducing: Daily Pulse


Every member of your team can now anonymously answer any question upon clock-out. Would you want to know what your workforce thinks of the following:

Whom does your team thinks best lives a core value?
Which co-worker do they find the most helpful?
Who should be the teammate of the month?

PayrollHero is your platform for market measurement of your important KPI’s.

Responses from Daily Pulse are one more point of data for management to make better informed decisions with.

We recommend decisions be made with evaluation of the ever growing data set PayrollHero provides and the qualitative recommendations of their leadership.

Daily Pulse does not attribute whom cast the vote publicly; this in combination with our evolving algorithms should thwart spoiled votes.
