Skuid, the leading cloud application platform, today announced that BDO, one of the world’s leading accounting networks, used Skuid to build their global payroll ecosystem, evolve. The new solution is a single, unified, and secure platform that allows market-leading companies to easily manage payrolls and compliance needs across 162 countries around the world. evolve will officially launch at the UNLEASH World Conference & Expo in Amsterdam during 23-24 October.
BDO serves market-leading businesses around the world, delivering assurance, tax, and financial advisory services and offering world-class resources to meet clients’ needs. As the world’s first global payroll ecosystem built with Skuid, the evolve platform gives BDO’s clients complete visibility and control of their entire global payroll process.
“Skuid was the obvious choice. After months of evaluating a variety of solutions and offerings, Skuid fulfilled our requirements and delivered incredible results for our customers, our employees and completed the evolve ecosystem,” said Neil Pinches, Global Transition Director at BDO. “The evolve platform helps our customers optimize their processes and increase business efficiency.”
The solution built with Skuid unites payroll functions, email and chat, document libraries, automated data, reporting and dashboards, aggregation, task management, maps, calendars, and more into one unified and secure platform. The solution integrates with a company’s HCM and back-end systems, providing insights and visibility across the business. All these features result in a significantly improved customer experience for BDO’s customers.
BDO’s previous solution was limited in its customizability, its UX, and its overall usability. BDO needed a secure solution, with full compliance with global payroll processing requirements. The solution also needed to provide BDO with advanced capabilities to customize the solution to their look-and-feel and specific needs. No off-the-shelf solution could deliver what BDO needed for its customers. BDO selected Skuid for its extensibility, its UX-first approach, and the overall usability of the platform.
“With Skuid, BDO overcame the challenges and risks associated with building an easy to use and accessible global payroll processing solution for their customers,” said Ken McElrath, Skuid CEO. “By starting with the needs of their customers and focusing on the people who use digital solutions, BDO has created a world-class customer experience in the evolve solution.”
BDO has exceptional local knowledge and experience across 162 countries and a global reputation for reliability and trustworthiness. BDO’s payroll solution, evolve, takes care of payroll and compliance for you. BDO globally serves more than 15,000 customers delivering over 5 million payslips per year.
Skuid was founded in 2013 on the simple belief that enterprise software should stop forcing people to behave like machines.
