CloudPay and NelsonHall Launch Free Interactive Global Payroll Maturity Assessment

Intelligent digital portal provides quick assessments of the operational maturity of multinational organizations’ global payroll functions

NEW YORK and LONDON – Feb. 28, 2017 – CloudPay, a leading provider of managed global payroll services to multinational organizations, and NelsonHall, a leading global research & analysis firm, have combined their expertise and data to build and release an intelligent global payroll maturity assessment tool for medium to large enterprises. HR leaders, CFOs, and global payroll managers, directors, and practitioners with multi-country operations are encouraged to access the digital assessment application at

The newly launched online portal from CloudPay and NelsonHall provides free and customized assessments to help organizations benchmark their global payroll processes, operations, and technology. The five-minute assessment will guide global organizations through a series of questions to establish the maturity of their payroll function. It then provides a scorecard with characteristics, challenges, opportunities, and resources to help organizations accelerate the transformation of their global payroll function.

“Even as Payroll achieves increased organizational significance as a resource for business intelligence, many multinational organizations still turn a blind eye to the inefficiencies, errors, and timeliness issues in their global payroll functions,” said Paul Bartlett, CEO of CloudPay. “By leveraging our data and expertise across 20+ years of global payroll and collaborating with NelsonHall, we aim to help illuminate the problems inherent to operating payroll with a decentralized approach and provide advice on achieving a stronger level of payroll maturity.”

Global Payroll Assessment

CloudPay and NelsonHall designed the assessment tool using their deep knowledge of the common challenges, costs, and obstacles involved in managing payroll across a multinational enterprise. By operating a ‘decentralized’ payroll landscape – reliant on many different technology systems and multiple outsourcing providers – organizations often experience excessively high costs, compliance risks, and inefficiencies in the global payroll function. By taking a more proactive and strategic approach to payroll – powered by greater global centralization and unified, integrated global HR and payroll solutions – mature global payroll departments can decrease errors and costs while continually improving efficiency and productivity.

“At NelsonHall, we pride ourselves on delivering top-tier insights on business process optimization and outsourcing, and the Global Payroll Assessment Tool is a case example of that,” says Gary Bragar, HRO Research Director at NelsonHall. “We’re pleased to have worked with CloudPay on developing the payroll maturity assessment. This tool can help organizations better understand the maturity of their payroll operations and make more informed choices around enterprise globalization and payroll outsourcing.”
