SYDNEY – 14 December 2020 – Leading APAC Payroll and HCM solution provider, Ascender has today announced the extension of its partnership with WorkForce Software. WorkForce Software is a leading global provider of cloud-based workforce management solutions. This extended partnership will allow for a stronger, more seamless integration between workforce management solutions and payroll, providing employees with a more streamlined experience. 

Ascender and WorkForce Software have been partners since 2014, providing an integrated and compliant payroll, workforce management solution to help clients deliver pay accurately and on time. WorkForce Software empowers employees and managers by digitising time and labour processes, optimising demand-driven scheduling and simplifying absence management whilst adapting to clients needs and also the ever-changing workforce environment. 

The extended partnership between Ascender and WorkForce Software will allow large scale organisations and enterprises with complex rostering and payroll needs to be better serviced. WorkForce Software is one of the only Tier 1 level workforce management software vendors that can service organisations of such a scale, allowing for greater integration with Ascender’s software. By further enhancing the relationship between Ascender’s time and attendance systems with the dynamic rostering and complex solutions provided by WorkForce Software, clients can enjoy a more robust workforce management system. 

“We are very excited to deepen our long-standing partnership with WorkForce Software,” Reika Dzupinka, Ascender General Manager for Growth & Strategy, says. “This year we have seen an acceleration in demand for reliable HR Technology from experienced vendors. This partnership allows us to extend our solution offerings to our clients resulting in an integrated best-of-breed Payroll and WFM solution and an enhanced employee experience.”

“WorkForce Software and Ascender have a proven track record of helping customers streamline their payroll processes and solving their complex scheduling challenges.” Nick Bailey, WorkForce Software Senior Vice President for APJ, says. “Together our solutions empower organisations to operate in a more agile way, reducing their labour costs and improving operational efficiencies.”

Underpayment and payroll non-compliance continue to be hot topics across APAC. As businesses continue to adjust to the new normal of flexible working brought forward by COVID-19, it’s more important than ever that there is a robust T&A software as part of their payroll system. 

Ascender and WorkForce Software’s extended partnership will strengthen the integration between their payroll and workforce management systems to continue providing a seamless employee experience and strategic business insight to leaders, supporting the next normal of work.
