The Kalyani Group had promoted Kalyani Wheels as a part of its diversification plan. Kalyani Wheels then had a technical collaboration with Lemmerz Werke, Germany. Subsequently, Lemmerz Werke became a joint venture partner and the new company was christened as Kalyani Lemmerz Ltd (KLL). The company manufactures Wheel Rims for utility vehicles, light and heavy commercial vehicles and tractors.
Lemmerz is a world leader in wheel rim technology and supplies to leading automotive manufacturers. KLL manufacturers wheel rims using the flat stock, cold pressing and flow forming method pioneered by the Lemmerz Group. This process gives Kalyani Lemmerz a competitive edge over other wheel rim manufacturers.
KLL's HR department was responsible was processing its payroll. The HR team desired to focus on labor law issues. Also running a payroll in-house came with the risks of information and data leakage resulting in compromising the confidentiality of data. The HR team was also spending time on providing ad-hoc reports post payroll. KLL approached TopSource to provide a comprehensive payroll solution that needed to be delivered on time, accurately and be able to respond to their growing needs.
TopSource provided an end-to-end payroll service that freed up HR to continue to focus on HR related activities. Special reports were developed as part of the automation initiatives to produce Bonus Calculation, CTC summary, LIC reconciliations and Trust PF contributions. Timelines (including working on Sundays if required) are being followed by TopSource to deliver the service.
KLL has to no longer spend time on administrative work and queries related to payroll. The HR team is able to focus on core HR issues and industrial relations. They have eliminated the risk of issues caused due to employee dissatisfaction if HR issues are not handled in a timely manner. They also have the added benefit of a flexible service provider to meet their adhoc reporting requirements.
