easyJet Selects SafeGuard World International to Standardize Its Multinational Payroll Systems

SANDBACH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2014) -  SafeGuard World International (SGWI), a leading provider of global managed payroll, global employment outsourcing and international HR services, is proud to welcome another client on its journey, and announce the signing of a five year contract with easyJet.

As the UK's largest and Europe's fourth largest airline, easyJet flies almost 700 routes to more than 130 airports across 34 countries and has the leading presence among Europe's top 100 routes. Last year, the company flew more than 60 million passengers while maintaining a leading European network that focuses on making travel easy and affordable for customers and delivering a friendly and efficient service at a low cost. In a highly competitive market where price and service are critical drivers of growth, easyJet continually looks for opportunities to simplify systems and processes and identify and optimize the talent responsible for delivering great customer experiences. easyJet currently employs over 8,000 staff across 7 European countries.

easyJet is committed to leveraging the services available via SaaS (Software as a Service) or cloud-based software to provide support for its HR and payroll processes by replacing its existing legacy systems for HR and Payroll with a leading HCM and SGWI's payroll services. 

Alita Benson, Group Director, People at easyJet commented, "The SGWI payroll service across Europe will provide us with a platform that will enable us to continue to deliver high accuracy in payroll and support our future growth plans. We selected SGWI as they offered the optimum mix of service quality and value for money."

Following the HCM and payroll implementations, easyJet will enjoy receiving their data, entering their data and analyzing their data in one integrated HCM system that works hand-in-hand with their payroll system, increasing accuracy, saving time and providing unprecedented visibility into its global payroll analytics. The solution also provides all of the benefits inherent in any cloud-based system including implementations which are traditionally faster than easier than legacy ERP integrations, vendor-managed hosting and maintenance, as well as full scalability and flexibility including centralized upgrades made in real time, minimizing business disruptions.

Bjorn Reynolds, Founder and CEO of SafeGuard World International, commented, "Integration between global HCMs and multinational payroll systems is a requirement that many of our clients have in common. This was clear to us when we developed our technology strategy and as a result, designed a highly-flexible and configurable solution that can now serve easyJet's needs. We welcome easyJet to our journey and look forward to supporting their global HR needs as they continue to grow and expand in the future."
