President Donald Trump has signed into law the most extensive overhaul of the US tax code in nearly 30 years and it’s arguably the most significant legislation of Trump’s presidency. But for small and medium businesses (SMBs), across various industry verticals such as Automotive, Healthcare, Manufacturing, Not for Profit, Restaurant, Technology and Retail, the pertinent question is, how can they leverage this tax reform to their advantage?
In today’s highly competitive world of business, optimum utilization of time plays a vital role for a business’s sustainable growth. Considerable time of SMB owners is consumed in Payroll processing, managing cash flows, getting customers pay on time, keeping the costs down and increasing their profitability. As a result, there is no time to focus on the growth of their business. To thrive in a world where seemingly everyone is a competition, it is very important for a business to be dynamic. SMB owners need to wear multiple hats to manage their time and concurrently keep the wheels of their business revolving. Succinctly, they not only need to work hard, but also, work Smart.

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.
