For employers with a global workforce, payroll can be a complicated game. On average, multinational corporations have 10 payroll systems and 10 HR systems of records, according to a May 2011 report from ADP.

“Now 10 vendors to manage, 10 contracts to manage, 10 different systems to integrate, it’s challenging and it’s frankly inefficient for many organizations,” Steve Hardy, vice-president of multinational client marketing, ADP GlobalView, based in New Jersey.

The report, A Study of Multinational Corporations, surveyed 1,216 international companies, across a cross section of industries.
