Making Global Mobility operations more efficient.

Talk to us

You have to get the data right

The pressure on Global Mobility to deliver more to the business with the same or less resource and budget has never been greater. The limiting factor to delivering this, is the operational burden Global Mobility teams have to work through. We take away this burden quickly at cost neutral – all while delivering permanent savings within a 8-12 week service initiation process. We do this by combining your data and payments management into a single, easy to use platform, so processes become simple, efficient, accurate and secure.

Global Expat Pay allows Global Mobility teams to transform. With Global Expat Pay’s help, the Global Mobility team will have the time needed to support business requirements and supply the data to make informed decisions.

Here’s how our solution can help overcome typical Global Mobility operational challenges, adding value through time and cost reductions.
Real-time data

The problem

Global Mobility data regularly comes from multiple global locations and a variety of systems and internal functions, leading to disjointed and difficult to review outputs.

Our solution

Global Expat Pay gathers data from multiple sources and creates a single output, allowing you to provide better advice to your assignees with a real-time view of their assignment and the wider business. And, as you have instant visibility over payments, you can quickly address any human errors.

Payroll
processing

The problem

Incomplete and inaccurate data makes it difficult to facilitate timely assignee payroll. This results in additional internal time and external cost in rectifying errors and addressing non-compliance.

Our solution

We optimise your internal payroll infrastructure to enable you to smoothly process both actual and shadow payroll.

reporting

The problem

An inability to track costs and provide senior management with the reporting and level of accuracy required to deliver business insight can undermine the reputation of the Global Mobility function and create additional work trying to supply it.

Our solution

We make it possible for you to provide more accurate insight to the business, through collation of data, automated reporting and providing access to real-time information at the click of a button.

Year-end
reporting

The problem

Our solution

We ensure employee year-end and tax is accurate, meaning your reporting is reliable and fit for offering strategic business insight.

Value delivered

Finance cost
recharging

The problem

The costs associated with relocating assignees globally can be varied and a challenge to recharge between home and host locations. Lack of complete data can lead to errors, create difficulties in tracking vendor invoices against budgets and slow the process of making assignee payments. As a result, correctly allocating these costs can be complex and incur significant Global Mobility and finance team resource.

Our solution

We simplify and automate your finance cost recharging, improving your day-to-day operations.

Value delivered

Immediate

  • Efficient and accurate cost recharge reporting
  • Reduce time and touchpoints on the recharging process

Confidence in
technology
