Intelligo Software, one of the leading HR and Payroll providers in the UK and Ireland, announced today that Ireland’s largest hairdressing salon, Peter Mark, has chosen Megapay to manage both their Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland Payroll Needs and MegaHR to manage their HR Requirements.
Founded by Peter and Mark Keaveney in 1961, Peter Mark opened its first salon on Grafton Street in Dublin. Since then, Peter Mark has grown into Ireland’s best known hairdressing brand and one of Europe’s most successful hairstyling groups. Peter Mark currently employs over 1500 staff in their 72 branches across Ireland.
According to Susan Flynn, Payroll Manager for Peter Mark, “We have been successfully using Megapay since 2004 to manage our Irish Payroll needs and also their integrated HR solution MegaHR. When choosing a payroll system to manage our Northern Ireland staff, Megapay was the natural choice, as we needed a payroll provider who could support both UK and Irish Payroll legislation. Megapay has always addressed all of my payroll needs and certainly meets the payroll and HR requirements for Peter Mark.
“All reporting to the various departments has been streamlined; reporting is superior to the previous UK Payroll package we had in place. The importing of timesheet data, reporting on various elements such as job costing/grading has really helped to make our job easier,” added Susan. “In addition, Megapay UK has also improved efficiency for our Payroll Department with regard to the UK statutory payment/deduction requirements such SSP, SMP and Attachment of Earnings Orders, all can be managed at the touch of a button.”
Padraig Gill, Director at Intelligo commented, “We are very excited to have another of our existing corporate Megapay clients switching to Megapay UK to manage their UK and Northern Ireland payroll needs. Since its launch in Ireland in 1996, the Irish version of Megapay has grown to become one of the leading corporate payroll systems in Ireland and is currently used to pay over 18% of the working population of Ireland and we look forward to the same success in the UK”.
“We are delighted to announce that Megapay UK is officially launched, the UK edition is the culmination of much development work and interaction with HMRC.
