This second report in our ‘In Pursuit of Value’ series examines PCC and its potential impact on payroll organizations at a high level; it deals with a wide range of general considerations, examines how PCC should be deployed and augmented, and offers guidance on preparation of a business case.

Concluding the HR renewal programme, SAP introduced the single most significant advance in the SAP payroll process in the past decade. By way of fundamentally overhauling how the payroll process is managed, Payroll Control Center (‘PCC’) can meaningfully reduce payroll processing costs, enhance payroll accuracy and transform payroll processing from being a stress-laden, month-end-centric activity, to being close to real-time, with a sensibly distributed workload throughout the payroll period.

Whilst offering value to single-office or multi-country organizations, PCC has an especially strong value proposition for shared service centers catering to multiple geographies; it enables a consistent payroll process and encourages standardization whilst providing flexibility for country-specific requirements.

The PCC is available for On-Premise Payroll and Employee Central Payroll solutions and provides a framework for:

  • End-to-end processing of Payroll from a single screen;
  • Continuous (test-mode) Payroll processing;
  • Real-time exception monitoring;
  • Guided update of master data based on warning or error messages;
  • Automatic rerun of Payroll after corrections;
  • Integrated analytics; and
  • Optimized administration and task distribution.
