Recently, Infor launched its new payroll module for Infor Global Human Resources (Global HR). It’s important to note that if you’re a customer in the US, Infor Payroll will be replacing Infor Infinium, further enhancing the solution’s scalability and usability.

This article will help you better understand the key features and benefits of Infor Payroll and everything it has to offer. Let’s dive in. 

What Is Infor Global HR Payroll?

Infor Payroll is a cloud-based solution with one system of record for all employees. It provides in-house payroll processing functionality with various options for service partners to manage back-end payroll processes, including wage payments and garnishments, employment tax filings, and other services. While designed for the Infor Global Human Resources management software, you can also integrate it with other human capital management (HCM) solutions. 

Features of Infor Global HR Payroll

Infor developed this module to help meet the needs of the modern business environment (i.e. one that’s fast paced and ever changing). Infor Payroll is based on a product that’s been successful for decades but has now been rewritten on a modern multi-tenant architecture. Infor Global HR Payroll works across a wide variety of industries to help streamline payroll analytics and reports. 

Let’s take a closer look at its key features:

All-in-one Configuration

Creating and maintaining applicable configuration codes is now consolidated. Users can configure pay or deduction codes for pay-cycle processing in one place, as opposed to having to navigate a host of different forms (decreasing efficiency and increasing the chance of manual errors).

Consolidated Pay Cycle

Users can now monitor and run pay cycle processes in one location with contextual application logic that makes it easy to guide payroll admins through the process, making the process simpler for everyone. 

Secure and Flexible Time Records for Processing

As a security measure, admins can lock time records during pay-cycle processing while still allowing employees the ability to access and update information. 

Benefits of Infor Global HR Payroll

As a cloud-based solution, Infor Payroll improves agility and flexibility, especially when it comes to supporting a hybrid workforce. Other benefits of basing the solution on the cloud include predictable costs and improved security. 

Let’s explore some of the other benefits of Infor Global HR Payroll: 

  • Comprehensive HCM application suite with Payroll as an add-on module
  • Easy access for reporting for Infor Birst
  • Faster than single-threaded systems like COBOL, as it’s based on Java and Landmark
  • Hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) like many other Infor Cloud solutions
  • Improved user interface and experience for payroll admins 
  • Modern technology without dependency on 4GL
  • One source of truth for all core HCM business processes
  • One tech stack and database
  • Payroll and HR processing can happen simultaneously 
  • Users can lock records for payroll processing preventing data update conflicts

Implementing Infor Global HR Payroll—Next Steps

The goal of this new payroll solution is to become the standard replacement for Infor payroll solutions across the globe. It’s currently available in the U.S. and meets the compliance requirements for every state. Soon, it will be available in Canada and the Middle East and eventually rolled out to the UK, France, and Germany, where customers are using legacy solutions such as Pegasus.
