Zalaris ASA have successfully transitioned the Circle K Ireland group onto the Zalaris cloud solution powered by SAP SuccessFactors and SAP Human Capital Management for approximately 2,200 employees. In addition to payroll, the Zalaris platform manages time and absence, travel, mobile applications along with the full cloud solutions suite.
Furthermore, the transactional activities for HR, Payroll, Travel and accounting have also been transitioned into the Zalaris Ireland Dublin office for a full Business Process Outsourcing (BPO) service.
Circle K already has 7 country operations currently live with the Zalaris cloud solution and BPO Services and with the recent go live in Ireland increasing that to 8.
“The transition from a local In-house Payroll Team to Global Outsourced Payroll provider was a big move for our business and more specifically for our payroll team. The team’s attitude throughout this transition has been second to none and I have no doubt that this greatly supported a seamless go-live. The management of this project was key for me and the combination of expertise from Circle K Europe, Circle K Ireland, Zalaris and our SAP consultants meant that our business was confident throughout that our 2,200 staff would be successfully paid and feel no disturbance through the transition period. Thank you to all of you involved. We look forward to defining out new processes and ways of working together from this point forward.” says Ruth Mellett, HR & HSE Director, CircleK
“It’s always nice to work with Circle K and implement SAP with them in new countries. It’s now been eight countries since 2012. The customer project team have from day one been positive to a new system, interested in learning how it works and been solution orientated. Going from a local system to a global ERP system is not always easy but the payroll team and the project team have handle this excellent. Thanks again for the good cooperation in this project which started up last summer.” says Alexander Milton, Vice President BPO Services, Zalaris
