esl’s key market strategies

Working with experts in the field to develop smarter processes and effectively capture knowledge for linked and integrated processes, where service quality is paramount.
esl continually conducts Client Satisfaction Surveys across a very diverse client base, finding that a common request is to drive down costs in addition to creating systems that are more environmentally friendly, the esl Gateway leads the way for managing this:-

esl Online Business Gateway gives clients fantastic benefits:

  • Secure access to the payroll account from anywhere you have Internet access.
  • Instant access to management reports and payslip summaries with up to 7 years history.
  • Data upload for all payroll changes to be sure the account manager is alerted. No need for emails!
  • Audit Trail for every exchange made via the Business Gateway, date/time/user stamped for protection.
  • Paper-free payroll data the way organisations need it.

Electronic payslips and reports
For more please see:
The implementation of ePayslips, ‘Payslip4U’ is part of esl’s initiative to drive clients towards a greener office environment; a tough challenge considering it is recognised that Payroll and HR departments are the biggest producers of printed matter in many companies.
esl is keen to assist organisations to develop their systems and processes that will enhance green credentials and help achieve CSR ‘award winning’ recognition.
The introduction of ePayslip technology with eReporting has undoubtedly had a positive environmental impact on administrative costs as it discards the need for constant employee information requests directly to the HR team; the information is readily at hand on-line for the employees.

Providing ePayslips is only a part of the project objectives. The main focus is to support clients with benefits:-

  • zero IT footprint
  • Reduced power usage
  • Little or no Risk of IT failure
  • Back-ups and storage
  • Reduced usage of printers and toner
  • No payslip stationery
  • Minimal reporting stationery
  • Empowered employees with a strategic team enabled to focus on core business areas.

A typical example for a client operating a monthly payroll for 500 employees will realise saving of £2460 per year and in addition, reduce; just on payslips alone, 3,000 documents a year enjoying environmental benefits of reduced paper usage, printing and energy costs.
