A Deep Dive for National Payroll Week

Today is the start of National Payroll Week and we really wanted to give something back to the wonderful payroll teams who use Merit at the heart of their payroll departments this year.

We’re excited to be able to do that by taking you on a Deep Dive of your system.

We know that payroll needs change over time and data can accumulate quickly. Because of this, over the next few weeks we are rolling out our Deep Dive project to Merit customers which will use a brand new tool to analyse your system and archive historical data, which in turn will ensure your system is still running as fast as it should be.

However, this will be far more than a quick scan of your system.

Although our support department are always here to help you, we know that if you’re a busy department with no specific questions for us, you won’t be thinking of picking up the phone and having a chat on a regular basis.

That’s why our Deep Dive is also a fantastic chance for us to catch up with you, discuss how you use Merit, and suggest ways that you can streamline your payroll process if you have any questions.

The Deep Dive is a free service as part of our commitment to being your software partner, and every single customer will be contacted by us to arrange a time slot that’s suitable for you, so you don’t need to do anything at this point.

All Merit customers should have received a detailed email late last week with more technical information about how the scan will work, but if you have missed it please contact us and we will get it over to you again.

National Payroll Week was established in the UK by the CIPP in 1998 to celebrate the payroll profession and give it the recognition it deserves.. The week was designed to demonstrate the impact the payroll industry has in the UK through the collection of income tax and National Insurance, which contributed in the region of £249bn to the UK economy in 2020/21.

As always, nobody appreciates more than us how hard it is to work in a payroll department, and this week we’re proud to help shine a light on all payroll teams across the UK – not just those in temporary recruitment agencies and umbrella companies.
