Zalaris will deliver one common set of payroll and HR services across the covered countries utilizing Zalaris smartHR which is a cloud based solution powered by SAP HCM.
“Our smartHR outsourcing concept is ideal to support customers that want to harmonize personnel, payroll and talent management processes across borders through innovative Cloud and Mobile services.
