Calder Stewart demolishes old payroll system
With a history spanning nearly six decades, Calder Stewart has managed the trials of business growth. But being committed to quality meant finding a payroll system that would get out of the way and let the company do its best work.
That meant finding a system that could produce accurate and detailed reports for a staff of nearly 500. MYOB PayGlobal was able to supply that solution – and give Calder Stewart the power it needs to continue doing business right.
Calder Stewart started as a two-man operation in 1955 and has grown into a multi-million dollar construction company with 472 staff. With nearly 60 years in business, the New Zealand company has remained committed to strong values, sound practices and positive culture.
Cracks in the process
When Calder Stewart conducted a review of its payroll system, the company discovered numerous flaws. Bottlenecks in the process caused great frustration. Retrieving key employee information was a real challenge. Needless to say, the inefficient payroll system was in desperate need of replacement.
"Everyone we dealt with at PayGlobal went above and beyond."
A solution built on strong foundations
Calder Stewart had a long list of problems that needed solving. The company sought a solution that could easily integrate payroll and HR requirements – and it also had to be capable of providing accurate reports, legislatively compliant calculations and fully automated processing.
At the end of the day, Calder Stewart selected PayGlobal (now MYOB PayGlobal). It was an easy choice as PayGlobal not only provided the integrated payroll process the company needed, but also the perfect time and attendance solution.
“Right from the very beginning, everyone we dealt with at PayGlobal went above and beyond.” says Denise Cooper, Calder Stewart HR Manager. “They were fantastic, down to earth, practical and extremely thorough in ensuring our specific needs were met.”
"PayGlobal was extremely thorough in ensuring our specific needs were met."
