Now is a great time to start building a case for updating your organization’s payroll system. New payroll technology automates and streamlines processes, eliminates redundant data entry and multiple customizations, and increases productivity, while reducing costs and improving compliance controls. But to make this change, you need to make the most effective business case. Discover five key business drivers in payroll that will help make the case for change and persuade leaders to invest their time and money in your business case.
When it comes to time, there never seems to be enough. Just ask any payroll professional. Time constraints are nothing new, but what is new is how payroll professionals are tackling the challenge. They are discovering how to strategically leverage today’s best-of-breed human capital management (HCM) technology to better manage the expectations and demands placed on today’s payroll teams to achieve greater business results. By investing in an HCM solution as an integral part of their workforce management strategy, businesses can align and create efficiencies within three core areas of payroll — compliance, processes, and data visibility. This will free up time for an already over-burdened payroll team that can add value, deliver on actionable real-time data, and execute on company-driven projects that can impact organizational goals and improve bottom-line results.

As businesses grow more optimistic about opportunities for growth, the pressure is on for sales organizations to meet ever higher revenue targets. In a global survey on sales performance optimization by CSO Insights, 94 percent of respondents said their 2014 revenue targets were higher than last year’s. It’s no wonder that “capture new accounts,” cited by 60 percent of respondents, topped the list of objectives for 2014 in the study.
At the same time, many sales reps are struggling to meet even their current quotas. And in an Aberdeen Group survey, nearly half identified insufficient revenue growth as the top pressure motivating them to pursue sales management initiatives ranging from building out the capabilities of sales teams to improving management practices and investing in technology tools.

For many years, large corporations have employed financial planning and analysis professionals to oversee budgeting, planning, forecasting and analysis. But the sea-change in technology, data and the competitive landscape is having a sustained impact on the FP&A function as it transforms from a predominately budgeting function to a forward-focussed strategic contributor.
Now, as new cloud technology makes implementing modern FP&A quicker and cheaper, the function has become more accessible to medium-sized, or even smaller, organisations. There is a nascent but growing realisation that this corner of the finance function should be demanding more of an organisation’s attention, large or small, because having accurate and timely visibility, further into the future, could mean the difference between success and failure in today’s highly uncertain and volatile business environment.

Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers.
With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer.
This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.
Whether you’re looking to improve your application and service delivery, consolidate existing performance monitoring tools and responsibilities or justify the impact of a new technology deployment, the following six steps can help you create the fundamental building blocks of an effective performance monitoring strategy.

Companies that take a more sophisticated approach to customer success, revenue retention and revenue growth after the initial sale earn 46 percent more revenue compared to their less sophisticated peers, according to a global study conducted in 2015 across software, hardware, SaaS and life sciences companies.
The study highlights the urgent need for companies to consider the full range of customer success and revenue growth activities after the initial sale—collectively called the “revenue lifecycle”—which includes onboarding, adoption, upselling/cross-selling, retention and renewal. The study shows that a company that improves people, processes, technology, data and KPIs in the revenue lifecycle can expect to improve renewal rates by more than 31 points.
