From recruiting through payroll processing, companies are gravitating toward cloud platforms and more specifically toward the Salesforce Platform. If business automation technologies are not integrated, it will result in productivity losses, data inaccuracies, and possible audit violations related to the storage and access to personally identifiable information (PII). In a work-from-anywhere era, it is crucial to select solutions that are integrated and, even better, on the same platform. Many businesses are finding their holy grail in Salesforce, the most acclaimed cloud-based CRM platform and the platform that is set to pass SAP as the largest enterprise application company in the world.
Until now, the glaring gap in the Salesforce Platform was the lack of an on-platform full-service payroll and HCM application. “We have all these different applications on the Salesforce Platform, from sales to accounting and revenue management. But businesses often had to seek refuge in off-platform applications for their payroll processes,” states Thomas Jansen, Founder of Sunrise HCM and visionary in the human capital management (HCM) landscape and the IT arena. Jansen explains that to process payroll for employees and contractors, Salesforce users had to export employee data from Salesforce, transform the data, and then import the data to legacy payroll management platforms like ADP, Paychex, and Paylocity. “It is not just a highly time-intensive process, but also very error-prone because anytime you pull data out of a system and import it into another, you are opening yourself up to data inaccuracies and potential audit violations,” adds Jansen.
Helping businesses in overcoming this impediment is where Jansen’s company, Sunrise HCM, cements its cornerstone. “We took a completely new look at how businesses can perform their HR and payroll processes and built them from the ground up on the Salesforce platform,” shares Jansen. To this extent, Sunrise HCM provides a fully integrated end-to-end HCM solution for the Salesforce platform with a specialized focus on automated full-service payroll functionality.
Under the Hood of Sunrise HCM’s Payroll Application With a first-of-its-kind native Salesforce application for payroll processing, Sunrise HCM is revolutionizing the market by eliminating the need for disparate, non-integrated payroll and HCM solutions. Using Sunrise HCM’s payroll application, HR professionals can calculate their employees’ productivity, earnings, and deductions with a click of a button in Salesforce. “There are no data exports, imports, or data transformations necessary. HR professionals can easily calculate the final salary or hourly earnings, direct deposits, tax withholding, and third-party payments—all on the Salesforce platform using our application,” says Jansen. Above all, business owners can rest assured knowing that the secure Salesforce environment contains all human capital data. “All data originates and stays in Salesforce, making integrations with other Salesforce applications, such as accounting, a breeze,” further highlights Jansen.

“Even if your company is not currently using Salesforce CRM, Sunrise HCM includes a Salesforce platform license giving all employees and contractors access to the Salesforce Platform and access to the Sunrise HCM Full Service Payroll Bureau, all with no payroll transaction fees,” highlights Jansen.
What complements such an innovative solution and takes Sunrise HCM additional levels above the rest is its team of in-house experts that are well-versed in the crucial areas of HR and payroll services, as well as the Salesforce platform, with 30 plus years of experience. This technological and industrial know-how, combined with a superior client support system, helps clients of Sunrise HCM in meeting their payroll processing needs in a cost-efficient and timely manner.
At this juncture, Jansen shares a case study to further substantiate the benefits any business stands to gain by using Sunrise HCM. A professional services firm was using the Salesforce platform in conjunction with an off-platform payroll application. Because of this disjointed setup, the firm’s employees and contractors submitted the hours they spent working on various projects. The firm’s HR team would then manually enter the data in their payroll solution. “With Sunrise HCM, they automated the entire process,” adds Jansen. With Sunrise HCM, an hourly employee or contractor enters and submits their hours of work and, with the click of a button, the application then calculates the total earnings to be paid by taking into consideration the hourly pay rate or salary, earnings like bonuses and commission, and scheduled deductions like employee health insurance premiums. “And all this at 50 percent of the cost that the firm was paying to their previous payroll vendor,” underscores Jansen.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with the increase of remote working, Sunrise HCM is experiencing a high demand for its HR and payroll solution. Sunrise HCM is ready to take this challenge head-on, backed by its extensive experience in the domain. Moving ahead with this undeterred momentum, Sunrise HCM continues to enhance its existing solution even further. “If our clients dream up a new requirement, and it can be used by the user community as a whole, we will include it in a release and charge our clients absolutely nothing to use the new feature or service,” concludes Jansen.
