The Payroll Services Alliance consists of partners who cooperate in a unique way, in order to simplify global payroll management for their customers. Each payroll outsourcing partner is a leader and expert in its region. Together the partners constitute a global network that combines local expertise with global effectiveness. Not only in solutions and innovation, but also in thought leadership and their customer focus. With Ascender joining the partnership, the Payroll Services Alliance has a strong leadership presence in global research firm Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Payroll BPO Services: Ascender, SD Worx and Ceridian are all positioned in the top quadrant, representing three of the five leaders in this analysis.
“By adding Asia, Australia and the Middle-East to the Payroll Services Alliance reach, we strengthen the position of the Alliance in the global payroll market and challenge our competition. Most importantly, we offer our clients the best of both worlds: global governance with local expertise, with a consistent level of services across countries”, says Steven Van Hoorebeke, CEO of the SD Worx Group and cofounder of the Payroll Services Alliance.
Rishabh Mehrotra, CEO of Ascender added, “We are excited to be part of the Payroll Services Alliance as we continue to scale our business to be the leading payroll provider in Asia Pacific. We see a lot of opportunity to deliver increased value to our clients through this alliance of regional experts, which is disrupting the typical force-fit model that can be experienced from many global payroll providers.”
“We forecast that this alliance will have material impact on the growth of our business” said Rishabh.
