IRIS Software Group and Western Union Collaborate to Serve Global Payroll & Payments Worldwide

IRIS Software Group one of the UK's leading software providers, and Western Union Business Solutions, the payments arm of the Western Union Company, a global leader in cross-border, cross-currency money transfer and payments, formed a five-year international partnership today to provide streamlined payroll and payments solutions globally.

This collaboration would meet the rising need for world-class, cross-border payroll and currency transfers for multinational organizations. It enables in-house teams and specialist suppliers to execute payrolls in vast numbers, increasing employee satisfaction and peace of mind anywhere they are located.

Employee location has been less relevant in the last year, but the uncertainty of diverse cultures and regulatory regimes tends to restrict access to global talent pools. Western Union and IRIS Software Group are collaborating to remove these obstacles for the benefit of all customer stakeholders, with payroll, finance, HR, and operational teams now seeing payroll as the secret gem to employee wellbeing and peace of mind, allowing them to focus on their own business.

IRIS FMP is a valued partner in worldwide payroll, benefits, payments, and HR solutions; IRIS payroll offerings pay approximately 20% of the UK population, and IRIS HR and payroll solutions serve 90% of the global workforce. Western Union Business Solutions provides organizations with the tools they need to send, receive, and manage international payments through a multinational network that spans 200 countries and territories.

Payroll managers and accountants can calculate and process employee salaries due to IRIS FMP's technology and expertise. Western Union's platform, along with their experience, enables them to assist with ensuring the workers are compensated properly, from one to thousands, across various currencies and nations. All partners carry geographic expertise to the table, resulting in an end-to-end process that allows workers to distribute their employees' pay as smoothly as possible across the world.

The exceptional alliance is built on collaboration, transparency, and openness, with both companies recognizing the value that long-term partnerships create.
