Making a difference with McCain

by Junaid Jawed, Senior Customer Advocacy Executive

In 1957, McCain created the first ever frozen chip and went on to become the world’s largest manufacturer of frozen potato products. McCain remain a family-owned organisation and have grown to 52 production facilities across six continents, employing over 21,000 employees across the world. As a people-centric business, it was imperative for them to have an agile and trustworthy system in place that could help their employees to work smarter and ensure their staff were paid appropriately. To reduce processing time and human error through the automation of complex calculations, they have invested in our innovative Payroll solution, Flexipay.

With Flexipay, we delivered:
• A straightforward and simple to use process which empowers their Payroll Team.
• The ability to instantaneously automate reports to extract the information you need, right when you need it.
• A scalable and secure solution which works across multiple sites.
• Saved time and costs through a rapid processing speed which ensures their 1500+ UK employees are paid accurately and on time.

Steve Donoghue, Payroll Manager at McCain emphasized his encouragement and excitement in adopting Advanced’s payroll solution. Working in the field for over twenty years, he recognised how Flexipay has constantly enabled his team across multiple organisations to operate smoothly and increase accuracy. Steve noted ‘Payroll is a highly sensitive, mission-critical, business function so it’s important to have a system you can trust that executes at pace, as it makes the world of difference in your day-to-day role.’

From the initial meetings, he recognised the depth of our team’s product and industry insight as well as our uncanny ability to identify and address their needs. They attribute the comprehensive support, measurable timeframes and the degree of commitment from our consultants, as touchpoints which really defined and shaped their journey with us. Steve remarked ‘working with Advanced is like a partnership. It’s a perfect example of developing a good long-standing relationship through offering a reliable and agile system and merging it with an excellent customer experience’.

Flexipay is a feature-rich, accessible payroll solution which works effortlessly and quickly across multiple companies, sites, pay groups, tax codes, references, and benefits. It’s a payroll system designed to make your accounting teams lives easier.

We're delighted to have McCain join the Advanced family and look forward to continuing our relationship with them.
