Crocus Consulting (www.crocus-consulting.com), an Oracle Gold Partner, has announced that its Global Payroll Special Interest Group (SIG) will now be open to all Oracle PeopleSoft Global Payroll users.
The SIG which brings together HMRC (Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs), Oracle and many of the UK’s leading employers will now provide even more users of Oracle PeopleSoft Global Payroll with an on-going forum to question developments and to discuss issues of shared interest. The SIG already includes senior payroll systems managers from the Banking, Retail, Recruitment and Industrial sectors.
A decision by those members of the SIG, who attended the most recent event at HSBC’s offices in Sheffield, took the decision to expand the group’s membership, as much of the initial content generated was felt have a broad appeal for all users of the software. New members who wish to join the SIG will now be able to attend the group’s next meeting hosted by Nationwide Building Society in Swindon on the 11th September.
Commenting on the SIG’s expansion, Crocus CEO Chris Smith noted, “We were encouraged to open the SIG initially by our own clients and with the support of both Oracle and the HMRC its membership grew quickly to include a number of other major organisations. We always intended that the SIG should ultimately be open to all if it was a success but the decision to do so lay with its members. This was agreed at the most recent meeting and we already know that a further three new members will be joining us at the Nationwide event in September. We are confident that other new organisations are likely to join us there too.”
