Transforming payroll

Unlocking business growth through operational process automation and technology modernization 


We successfully empowered users at various stages in the payroll process with a custom data pipeline engine driven by a drag & drop business process designer that automates or greatly simplifies payroll processes to create future growth opportunities.  Modern development processes have been implemented, including DevOps, CI/CD, Agile methodologies, and cloud transformation.

What we did

Getting the full picture

We facilitated workshops with various stakeholder groups to thoroughly capture business requirements and design prototypes to mimic the new user experience.

  • User personas, decision trees & process diagrams
  • Hardened requirements
  • A deep understanding of the ‘Why’ behind each solution being replaced

More than just payroll

We streamlined the payroll process through the design of a comprehensive, highly-configurable data processing and analysis platform to transform payroll data in any way imaginable.

  • Interactive current/future state platform mockups
  • Future state business process maps guiding consistency and flexibility

Live Demos, Reusable Patterns

We developed a custom data pipeline engine that is driven by a drag and drop business process designer to empower users to develop robust data pipelines in a simple, non-technical user experience.

  • Proof of tech first adopters, with effectively managed costs
  • Reoccurring whiteboard sessions to populate feature backlog for investment decisions
