Over the last 10 years, the outsourcing of business processes in general and non-core functions like IT, HR, F&A, Procurement and others have evolved rapidly and come to be routinely serviced from delivery centers located in different continents. The activity that began as “lift and drop” of the processes from high cost to low cost locations is evolving to transforming the business processes through “Platform-based Processing”. This involves building processing capabilities, leveraging the software platform and making it available to customers on a “transaction pricing” model. In essence, it is a SaaS++ model wherein the Business Processes are delivered as a Service, “BPaaS”, leading to a lower Total Cost of Ownership for the end customers.

The client was using ADP’s HRIS platform for their HRIS requirements and another web based platform to process their payroll. Using the two different platforms required a high degree of manual intervention that led to an increase in the administrative burden for their small HR team. The HRIS platform was not integrated with payroll or any of their benefit carriers, so when there was an employee change that affected benefits, it required the same entry to be made in about 12 different places resulting in inefficiencies in the entire payroll/HRIS process. Moreover, there was no dedicated account manager assigned to the client by their existing service provider who could provide personalized live guidance or troubleshoot and resolve their queries immediately. As a result, the client was looking to replace the existing system with a user-friendly, intuitive HRIS system that could integrate payroll & HR related functions within a single platform. In 2014, the client evaluated several service providers and platforms and chose Quatrro as its partner for outsourced payroll and HRIS.

Top Priority Areas for Hotel Operators in 2017
The hospitality industry (excl. Travel) consists of companies that provide short-term accommodation, including hotels and casino hotels, motels, and inns dominated by large hotel chains. The industry continues to remain the bedrock of the American economy by providing accommodation to both the business and leisure travelers and thereby contributing to national GDP growth. Globally, the hospitality industry is experiencing a renaissance. Record high occupancy rates and pricing are widespread, and favorable economic and market conditions are projected to remain strong. While the market is providing exciting opportunities, most organizations are treading with caution due to the cyclicality of the market. In the US, the hotel assets continued to appreciate in 2016, but at a more modest pace due to slowing RevPAR(revenue per available rooms) growth and a rise in cap rates.
