Oracle | June 01, 2022
On May 31st, leading software solutions provider Oracle, announced that it plans to launch Oracle France Payroll, a tool on the Oracle Fusion Cloud HCM. The new solution will enable organizations to navigate compliance, develop automated workflows and accelerate payroll processing for employees in France. The Oracle France Payroll addition to the Oracle Cloud HCM will deliver integrated support for countries like Bahrain, China, Qatar, Canada, Kuwait, Mexico, U.A.E, U.K. and the U.S., with support for India and Oman to follow.
France is known for having the most complex payroll in all of Europe. The country requires employers to withhold and report income for a range of taxes on behalf of over 30 million French employees.
"Payroll is one of the single most important functions for keeping a workforce running smoothly. Employees have zero tolerance for mistakes or delays when it comes to their compensation, no matter how complicated the local rules and regulations are. It's essential that organizations use a cloud-based payroll system that natively integrates with their core HR systems to automatically stay up to date with changes in regulations and their workforce. The upcoming launch of Oracle France Payroll is a huge opportunity for local and multinational companies operating in France to benefit from that integration in their HR and payroll operations."
-Holger Muller, principal analyst, Constellation Research
The Oracle France Payroll platform will empower organizations in multiple ways. One of them is eliminating manual processes and reducing payroll errors. The automation of highly complex rules will enable clients to easily meet compliance standards and reporting requirements. The platform will allow multinationals in France to expand their operations with one powerful payroll solution.
"In France, the government and collective bargaining groups are constantly changing the laws and agreements regarding taxes and compensation in hopes of improving working conditions for employees. That can make it challenging for organizations to stay up-to-date on the latest processes they need to follow to pay their employees accurately and fairly. With Oracle France Payroll, local and multinational organizations with employees in France will be able to automate payroll operations to pay their workers quickly and accurately. Frequent and automatic updates will help ensure payroll operations are always in compliance, even as laws and contracts change."

Argyle | July 04, 2022
Ping Identification, the intelligent identity solution for the enterprise, and Argyle, the top employment data platform that gives businesses access to user-permissioned employment records in real time, have announced a new connection. With the help of payroll information, the alliance will include Argyle into PingOne DaVinci's no-code identity orchestration tool, increasing Know Your Customer (KYC) and fraud prevention.
"Partner solutions designed to integrate with the PingOne Cloud Platform are helping organizations compete in a new digital era where user experience is increasingly important, and security cannot be sacrificed.”
-Brian Geary, Chief Commercial Officer, Argyle
Argyle’s pre-built integration with PingOne DaVinci enables customers to implement employment data into an identity orchestration layer without a single line of code. The frictionless process creates an additional line of defense against fraud,” stated Geary. “Payroll systems are an alternative and valuable source of immutable data such as employer, social security number and pay allocations that further strengthen identity verification and allow lenders to double-check the paycheck distribution against the account they will use for ACH transactions.
“Ping Identity is committed to expanding our technology partner ecosystem to deliver better, more frictionless customer experiences. Our partnership with Argyle leverages PingOne DaVinci's seamless orchestration to ensure dynamic user journeys are delivered quickly and efficiently at every stage of the user journey."
-Loren Russon, the SVP of Product Management, Ping Identity
