Payroll Control Center – Three-Click Production Payroll Walkthrough

In this blog post, we will walk you through a Three-Click Production Payroll of Payroll Control Center. Prior to producing final payroll results, you make sure that payroll data quality is perfect through One-Click Monitoring.

Sam Miller and his team are responsible for running the payroll in their company.

Sam, the Payroll Process Manager, is responsible for the overall process. He must ensure correctness and timeline (sign that all steps are executed correctly) and has to trigger his team members to resolve issues.

On July 23, Sam has to perform all the steps towards a successful July-2015-Payroll. Since in the prior One-Click Monitoring process all policy deviations have been resolved and since Sam starts the Three-Click Production Payroll right after he closed the One-Click Monitoring, it can be expected that the Three-Click Production Payroll runs without errors.

The Three-Click Production Payroll process is setup in PCC in such a way, that all steps, which can be executed automatically in case there are no errors, are executed automatically.

  • Since it is an active process, it is listed under “Current Processes”
  • Sam can see the following details:
    • The due date is July 23
    • The current active step is “Run Payroll” (for a Three-Click Production Payroll process, starting the payroll is always a manual activity)
  • Sam checks the details and clicks on this Three-Click Production Payroll process

  • After a while, the payroll run did finish
  • Same can see, that this run had no errors (which is not a surprise to him since in One-Click Monitoring he and his team did solve all policy deviations)
  • Using “See Details” Sam could get additional information on the payroll run, but Sam is not using this feature currently as thereare no errors

  • Sam confirms the correctness of “Run Payroll” which closes this step
  • Since all other steps are setup to run automatically, these steps are started right after the confirmation of this step

  • Payroll Control Center stops at step “Verify Payroll Data Quality”
  • This step has the same capabilities as in One-Click Monitoring and is meant to finally verify the correctness of the policies before the productive payroll run is closed

  • Sam confirms “Verify Payroll Data Quality” and accepts the results
