AG Barr's payroll story
Soft drinks organisation, AG Barr, made the move from a SaaS to fully outsourced payroll solution 3 years ago, in a bid to improve business continuity and reduce risks associated with having a small team. They also believed the move would increase adherence to compliance standards and use new technology that would allow them to do more, such as create an HR database and a benefits platform. But, what happened next?
We are going to be joined by Doug Brown, HR Director at AG Barr for a virtual roundtable on Wednesday 10th February at 2:30pm GMT, where he will share his story about why he made the move, how he built the business case and what the outcomes were. Join us to hear how AG Barr have created a stress-free, compliant payroll operation which has transformed their organisation.
This exclusive, invite-only session, will be a peer-led discussion shaped by the following points:

They made the move from a SaaS to fully outsourced payroll solution 3 years ago.
The switch from SaaS to outsourced
One of the main drivers for AG Barr’s decision to switch was to improve business continuity and reduce risks associated with having a small team responsible for their payroll operations, such as absences or loss of knowledge if someone left the business. They also wanted to increase adherence to compliance standards and use new technology that would allow them to do more, such as create an HR database and a benefits platform.
Results of switching to outsourced payroll
Since they have moved to managed payroll, they have greater peace of mind that their payroll is being taken care of accurately and efficiently. They don’t need to worry if their payroll team are absent from work, because SD Worx is handling the payroll for them.
SD Worx’s technology means AG Barr is automatically compliant and they have been able to create a HR database and introduce a benefits platform to reward their staff, which they couldn’t do before.
