The Problem

Being one of the leading manufacturers of automotive chains, L.G.Balakrishnan & Bros Ltd., is focused on innovation and technology upgradation on a regular basis to stay in tune with the latest market trends.

In order to streamline their HR management and provide  cost-effective technological solutions for their other business functionalities, they were in search of advanced, cost-effective, and user-friendly ERP systems.

The following are some of the major challenges faced by L.G.Balakrishnan & Bros Ltd., in managing their payroll system.

  • Difficulties in employee management since there are two types of employee system - Regular Employee System and Contract Employee System - handled in the company
  • Complicated payroll system due to the variance in location and employee system
  • Difficulties in allocating the provident funds with regards to the labour management
  • Complexity in allocating salaries for the employees based on system grades
  • Complications in managing the allowances and deductions
  • Complexity in loan system based on the worker management

As said earlier, the expert manufacturers were using SAP as their resource planning software. In order to experience an optimized business workflow, it is necessary to process the accumulated data in their old ERP system. Thus, a data integration process has to be implemented in between two different ERP systems.
