Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions' CEO Named a Superstar

HRO Today Recognizes Karen Paterson as HRO Superstar in Multi-Process Category

RALEIGH, NC and SALISBURY, UK--(Marketwire - January 25, 2010) - Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions, a leading global HR and payroll software and services business that can deliver expert solutions to clients in more than 160 countries, today announced that founder and CEO Karen Paterson has been named a 2010 HRO Superstar by HRO Today. This is her second consecutive year on this prestigious list.

HRO Today compiles an annual list of Superstars to recognize "who was most instrumental in helping to make outsourcing a more efficient and useful tool for HR organizations, in particular, and the economy at large." Provider Superstars are recognized for the innovations they bring to the marketplace.

"It is a great honor to have been named a Superstar and be in the company of such industry luminaries, especially after such a tough year. The economy made 2009 a challenging year for all. Controlling costs has become more important than ever and companies turn to Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions for reliable, affordable HR and payroll solutions," commented Paterson.

HRO Today is acknowledging Paterson as "an industry pioneer" for designing the world's first Internet-based global payroll management system. In doing so, she resolved what is potentially the largest problem faced by growing global organizations: the lack of a single contract, single platform payroll system that helps companies pay employees while managing the inherent risks involved in fielding local- and country-level tax and compliance regulations. Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions has grown from meeting the payroll demands of one client to delivering world-class HR and payroll Web-based software and services around the world, around the clock, to more than 160 countries in more than 30 languages.

"Our provider superstars are those individuals who are shaping the direction of the HRO industry," said Elliot Clark, Chief Executive Officer, SharedXpertise, publishers of HRO Today magazine. "In the multi-process category, Patersons HR and Payroll Solutions is addressing one of the longest standing challenges in the outsourced payroll industry: the ability for multi-national companies to have a single contract and single technology platform spanning the globe. We're pleased to welcome Karen to the 2010 HRO Superstar list."
