• Zellis HCM Cloud 8.0 includes enhancements to Power BI dashboards and the Zellis Intelligence Platform
  • Latest release adds more automation to National Minimum Wage calculations 


Bristol, UK: 30 April 2024: Zellis, the largest provider of payroll and HR software to the UK and Ireland, today announces a series of product developments as the company continues its mission to transform the future of HR and payroll operations.

Significant updates announced as part of Zellis’ HCM Cloud 8.0 release include:


Power BI dashboard enhancements

To support greater visibility and progress reporting, Zellis HCM Cloud customers can now compare pay across different diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) characteristics such as disability, identified gender, and marital status. Alongside this, HR and payroll teams will be able to view employee commission in addition to existing bonus pay data, allowing this important aspect of remuneration to be measured.


Increased automation of National Minimum Wage (NMW) calculations

Zellis HCM Cloud 8.0 also extends the scope of automated NMW calculations relating to key business process events. This includes the calculation of NMW annual hours and will ensure employees who join mid-way through the year are considered correctly – both for monitoring purposes, and for the point at which projected hours are exceeded. These enhancements also apply to the calculation of NMW annual hours for workers who have not exceeded the annual hours threshold and who end their employment mid-way through a pay period.


Zellis Intelligence Platform upgrades

Further upgrades to the Zellis Intelligence Platform (ZIP) include automated requests (webhooks) to support absence entitlement and fixed pay elements, enabling customers to build out integrations for key events. In addition, customers can now generate, store, and expose Dead Letter Events, making it easier for HR teams to take appropriate action. The extension of ZIP schema will also incorporate data from Performance Development Reviews (PDR) and training, expanding the data that exists within Zellis HCM Cloud.

Commenting on the company’s 8.0 release, Chief Product Officer, George Dunnett, said: “These developments demonstrate our commitment to supporting customer needs through continued innovation. Zellis HCM Cloud is built for the modern enterprise and all the challenges and complexities that impact HR and payroll operations. The vast majority of our customer base has now upgraded to Zellis HCM Cloud and we’re delighted to see our customers reaping the associated efficiency and productivity benefits.”


Also in development is the Zellis HCM Cloud Microsoft Dynamics HR connector, which will enable real-time flow of organisation, employee, and absence data from Microsoft Dynamics HR. Commenting on this, Dunnett added: “By developing a connector to Microsoft Dynamics HR we’re adding further weight to our existing connector offering and strengthening Zellis’ position as the best-in-breed HR and payroll solution for the UK and Ireland.”

Zellis HCM Cloud 8.0 also supports compliance around Guernsey pension auto-enrolment, which comes into effect from the 1st of July 2024, starting with employers that have more than 26 employees. These employers will need to auto-enrol their employees in YIP (Your Island Pension) or another approbated pension scheme, with Zellis HCM Cloud able to support automatic enrolment and assessment, as well as pension scheme set-up.
