Our Client

Cloudera delivers an enterprise data cloud for any data, anywhere-empowering people to transform complex data into clear and actionable insights via innovation in the open-source community. Cloudera advances digital transformation for the world’s largest enterprises.

“Last month I spent a full day checking 800 lines of bonuses. This month it took 3 seconds on Payslip.”

The Challenge

Cloudera had scaled rapidly from 200 employees across 14 countries to over 1800 employees in 28 countries. They had several different systems for global payroll processing, finance and HR and their growth activity created a strong requirement for consolidated reporting to get clearer visibility around compensation data metrics and payroll costs.

“I see Payslip is taking us forward to be the scalable $billion business we want to be.”

The Payslip Solution

The Client Success Implementations team here at Payslip met with Cloudera’s global payroll owners and finance teams to evaluate the current status of their data. To achieve quality reporting, it is essential to first review, clean up and standardize the data.

Understandably, their scaling activity resulted in them receiving different data from different sources, in different formats, making it difficult to supply bigger picture reporting to the C-Suite team.

Payslip worked with Cloudera to analyze their data and then proceeded to standardize and harmonize the pay elements for earnings, deductions, and employer costs by setting up and mapping the elements across a range of relevant categories: country, entity, employee etc. We introduced standardized general ledger codes and element classification across all of their payroll countries. While doing this, we created a playbook process that would enable Cloudera to introduce new elements in the future in a similarly standardized way, ensuring they could map and classify pay elements rapidly when they needed to in the future.

Payslip integrate easily with the Workday platform, and this proved to be advantageous as Cloudera had 1600 people across 20+ countries on Workday. This integration saved a huge amount of time by reducing manual work and also provided the employee details from the system of record to ensure accurate information was used.
