Synaxon pilots Moorepay payroll and HR service for IT and office products channel

August 7, 2014

Warrington, 07 August 2014 – Leading channel services dealer group, Synaxon – along with a number of its members, is taking part in a pilot scheme of Moorepay’s payroll, human resources and compliance services for the IT and office products channels, with a view to fully launching the service in the IT and office products channels later this year.

A trusted partner to thousands of organisations, Moorepay ( processes over 7,500 payrolls and produces over one million payslips per month for organisations throughout the British Isles. It partners with four High Street banks, providing payroll and HR services to their clients and serves customers of all sizes from a wide range of industry sectors.

The company is now looking to extend its presence in the IT and office products sectors and is working and Synaxon to demonstrate the effectiveness of its service for resellers and dealers. Synaxon itself and a small number of its members will pilot the service prior to a full launch planned for later in the year.

Derek Jones, Managing Director of Synaxon UK, said: “Using Moorepay is a highly efficient way to run payroll and ensure HR and legal compliance on issues such as auto-enrolment for pension schemes – which is a good example of a current issue that all small businesses must address. We believe in practicing what we preach, so Synaxon is actively participating in the pilot scheme, along with a number of our members. This will ensure we address any specific issues for IT and office products resellers, before we offer the service more widely.”

Gary Boyes, Sales Director at Moorepay, added: “We’ve chosen to work with Synaxon on our new Channel Reseller Programme due to its strong reputation and good track record of introducing new services to its members. Moorepay helps customers to streamline processes, ensure compliance and reduce costs, so it’s a perfect fit with the Synaxon approach. We‘ll be working very closely with the group to ensure we can meet all the needs of both Synaxon members and the wider tech products community and open up new routes to market.”

The Moorepay service will be a further addition to the ever-growing portfolio of services that Synaxon offers. Increasingly, the group is being asked to bring new services to the market, as well, said Jones. “More suppliers and services providers are approaching Synaxon with a view to leveraging our extensive contacts and, more significantly, our expertise in working with resellers and dealers to promote or launch their propositions or services. Moorepay is one of the most exciting projects we have worked on to date. We’ll be expecting to see a high level of interest from within our membership and beyond when the service is fully launched.”

Synaxon has recently completed a highly successful marketing and communications campaign for a major industry vendor and is discussing further projects with a number of channel partners.
