Transforming Global Payroll at Satellite Industries

Payroll Challenges

Satellite Industries is the world's largest manufacturer of portable sanitation products, with operations in over 120 countries and employing more than 500 people globally. Despite its success, the company struggled with the following pain points in the EMEA payroll:

  • No centralized data
  • Very diverse local payroll systems
  • Manual & time-consuming data input in Outlook, Word & Excel
  • Long payroll cycles
  • Numerous errors
  • No real-time cross-country reporting

Two Options

Satellite analyzed two options for improvement: either a global payroll provider that could handle the payroll for all its countries or a platform that could be connected with local payroll systems. They opted for the latter because direct access to local support from the ICPs was very important to them, which is not possible when working with a single global payroll provider.

The New Payroll Technology Stack

Satellite Industries decided to connect their local payroll systems with the Paybix global platform, Epix. They replaced some of their in-country payroll providers (ICPs) with a Paybix ICP, while continuing to work with the remaining providers, integrating all of them into the platform. They also acquired the employee self-service application for absence management for all their employees.

This setup provided them with an integrated view of their entire global workforce, regardless of the ICP.  Additionally, this setup enables the alignment and digitization of payroll processes across all countries.

The Journey To Improvement

The implementation of the platform was done in a few weeks.  Since Epix is a standardized platform, only minor configuration was needed to connect all the countries to it. “The transition to Epix was smooth, ensuring minimal disruption to daily operations. With Paybix's guidance, we navigated the change efficiently” says Audrey Meltzer, EMEA HR Lead at Satellite, “We implemented the employee self-service application for 7 countries in less than 3 weeks!”.
