How Fruit of The Loom addressed Global Payroll challenges across 8 countries using PCL Global Payroll on Oracle HCM Platform
Oracle Digital Assistant was implemented to facilitate quick responses for employees. The implementation of PCL Global Payroll was done in stages for different countries, including Oracle US Payroll, Europe Phase 1 and 2, Asia Pacific, China, and Japan, which streamlined their payroll processes.
PCL’s solution is specifically designed for manufacturing organizations, which was a perfect fit for Fruit of the Loom’s industry. It offered industry-specific features and functionalities that catered to the unique requirements of their manufacturing operations.
PCL’s Global HCM accelerator was tailored for midsize organizations, aligning perfectly with Fruit of the Loom’s company size. It offered scalability and flexibility to accommodate their growing business needs.
PCL’s global designs and template approaches were crucial for Fruit of the Loom, as they had operations in multiple countries. The ability to standardize HR and payroll processes across different geographies simplified their operations and ensured compliance with local regulations.
PCL incorporated manufacturing best practices and pre-validated designs into their accelerator, providing Fruit of the Loom with industry-leading processes for their HR and payroll operations. This helped them streamline their processes, improve data accuracy, and enhance overall efficiency.
Processes were streamlined through the implementation of a unified platform for payslip, resulting in better user adoption and a simplified onboarding and employee experience. The single vendor approach led to faster response times and easy vendor management, reducing payroll queries and improving overall payroll process efficiency.
The solution also brought significant improvements to various payroll processes, including new starter process, leaver process, leave payment process (such as sickness and maternity payments), and OT and shift differential payment process. Compliances in tax reporting to various agencies were also enhanced, with better review processes and access to accurate data for review and audits.
One of the notable benefits was the removal of data duplicity, leading to improved FTE (Full-Time Equivalent) efficiency and data accuracy. Payroll corrections due to errors in source data were minimized, resulting in significant time savings and improved accuracy in payroll processing.
Furthermore, the implementation of PCL global HCM accelerator resulted in a doubling of employee strength, while the number of payroll queries that required human intervention reduced by three-fourths, signifying an 85% improvement. This not only saved time for employees, but also improved engagement and allowed the payroll team to focus on strategic initiatives and enhance overall payroll productivity.
Secondly, the customer plans to implement Oracle Workforce Compensation to improve the process of managing bonuses and incentives for executives and management globally. This will enable more efficient and effective management of compensation for these roles, aligning with the organization’s global management strategy.
Thirdly, the customer aims to implement Oracle Time for hourly workers, specifically for manufacturing shop floor hourly wage workers and seasonal employees. This will improve time reporting processes for these workers, ensuring accurate and timely recording of hours worked, breaks, and other time-related information.
Lastly, the customer plans to implement Oracle Fusion Analytics for enhanced dashboard reporting. This will improve key reporting metrics and replace the current systems of Snowflakes and Tableau, providing more advanced and comprehensive reporting capabilities.
