SunChemical Case Study

By acquiring Coates Lorilleux in 2000, Sun Chemical doubled their existing UK workforce to 1,600 employees. After this, they saw a need to make the payroll function consistent across all their UK businesses. Coates Lorilleux continued to use a managed service from another provider for two years after the take-over, but this was too basic to handle their complex pay structure and was impacting negatively on employee relations at the company. So the HR department started looking around for another payroll provider who could provide a more efficient service and reduce their costs.
