A Spade is a spade. And a payroll platform.

CRS Technologies, a leader in integrated and efficient human resources and payroll solutions and services in the South African market, has launched its Spade campaign, emphasising the importance of fast and efficient patching and upgrades for payroll platforms in the remote working era. Designed to remove delays, mitigate security risks, ensure compliance and improve productivity, the CRS payroll platform is designed to integrate and update with leading solutions such as Sage, Microsoft, SAP, Oracle, myWorkday and industry-specific ERP systems.

“Software companies are notorious for releasing patches and upgrades that shut down devices, download slowly and impact business productivity,” says General Manager of CRS, Ian McAlister. “Over the past year, through the global pandemic, we have seamlessly released two patches, four tax releases and 13 upgrades with no impact to productivity, system or time.”

The CRS Spade campaign focuses on how important it is for organisations to invest in payroll solutions and software platforms that can be easily and remotely managed with minimal interruption. As the pandemic continues to impact on business and remote working, the ability to remotely upgrade and manage systems is of immense value. The payroll and human resources situation in South Africa has become increasingly complicated during the pandemic, with legislation changing almost daily. Organisations need a reliable and up-to-date payroll system that can handle this level of complexity.

“Payroll is one of the biggest business expenses which makes it critical for the organisation to optimise spend in this area, every month,” explains McAlister. “To do that, you need a system that can updated remotely, is capable of seamlessly doing so without disrupting essential services, and is up to date with critical changes to legislation and security.”

As a leading provider of solutions and services to the human capital management industry, CRS Technologies has created a solution that not only integrates with leading ERP systems and payment platforms, but also delivers exceptional levels of operational availability. Regular patches are designed to improve functionality and catch any issues with security, changes in platform or customer requirements; changes to tax releases ensure that your systems are up to date and prepared for each run correctly; and upgrades ensure that customers always move with the times.

“We have always thrived in the hosted and cloud environment, which means we can ensure your systems are always up to date, any time and on demand,” concludes McAlister. “After more than 35 years in the business, there’s very little we haven’t seen and we’re geared up for whatever lies ahead, be it remote, regulated or required.”
