Prevent Payroll Errors Before They Happen

Before PayMatch

Historically, a Payroll Department would request its IT Department to run parallels and produce payroll registers and/or spreadsheet results.  Reconciling between the payroll registers can be cumbersome and time consuming and creating spreadsheets is prone to errors.

PayMatch® allows the Payroll Department to identify these discrepancies quickly, in an efficient and comprehensive manner. This bolt-on solution empowers Payroll teams and frees up IT Department resources.

PayMatch® Overview

PayMatch® automates payroll testing that occurs when an Oracle PeopleSoft tax update, change in benefits, organizational change, or application upgrade is applied. Online review pages display payroll discrepancies in 11 comparison categories. In addition, comparison reports and custom queries can be processed to audit the results. PayMatch® allows you to parallel test your payroll in less time and with more accuracy. The application was specifically designed to run within PeopleSoft Human Capital Management and PeopleSoft Payroll. It is easy to use and provides a flexible and robust testing framework.

PayMatch® Can Be Used For:

  • Pay Cycle Reconciliation
  • Job and Personal Data Changes
  • Fraud Detection
  • Conversions from 3rd Party Payrolls
  • Tax Updates
  • Upgrades
  • Period over Period Payroll Audits
  • Testing of Open Enrollment/Year End
  • New Implementations
  • Testing of New Payroll Processes

Most Popular PayMatch® Uses

  • Implementations: Use PayMatch® when first implementing PeopleSoft Payroll, or when converting a separate organization from any payroll application to PeopleSoft Payroll.
  • Reasonable Test: Every pay period processing to identify reasonable difference between prior and current payrolls.
  • Upgrades/Updates: Use PayMatch® to verify that the upgrade process did not inadvertently affect payroll processing.
  • Tax Updates: Test the expected changes introduced by a tax update.

The most common use of PayMatch® is to compare between the same PeopleSoft payroll before and after a Tax Update or Bundle has been installed.  This will allow the Payroll Department to fully understand and verify the payroll impact of the PeopleSoft delivered changes.

Another use is to compare consecutive PeopleSoft payrolls before and after a comprehensive change has been made into the system (ex. Annual Merit increases, Benefits rate changes) to ensure the update process did not have any unintended consequences.

PayMatch® has also been used in PeopleSoft Implementations by our consultants. With the use of a customized Adaptor, PayMatch® can be used to parallel payrolls from 3rd Party Payroll systems (ex. ADP, Ceridian, GEAC, SAP).
