El desafío

Simplificar y estandarizar la gestión de nóminas en 20 países

Con empleados repartidos por 20 países diferentes, nuestro cliente cuenta con proveedores de servicios en el país para gestionar sus nóminas, lo que les libera de la carga de procesamiento y cumplimiento. Sin embargo, tener un proveedor diferente para cada país es un gran reto para sus equipos centrales de nóminas y finanzas. Reciben los datos de las nóminas de cada país, pero los formatos son totalmente diferentes y los factores de coste y los sueldos que figuran para cada zona geográfica difieren de un proveedor a otro. Comparar los costes de las nóminas de diferentes lugares es casi imposible. 

Además, cada vez que el equipo de nóminas necesita elaborar un informe sobre sus operaciones de nóminas a nivel mundial, se necesita mucho tiempo y esfuerzo para reunir manualmente los datos necesarios. En más de una ocasión, esta recopilación manual de datos ha dado lugar a errores en los informes que sólo se descubrieron meses después, cuando ya era demasiado tarde. Para la empresa de ingeniería, la falta de datos transparentes y fiables sobre las nóminas es un problema importante, ya que les impide acceder a un recurso valioso para tomar decisiones empresariales fundadas.


Compliantly hiring and paying of employees via Lano's partner network

With its platform, Lano enables Phrase to quickly expand its global team. Through a network of Employer of Record partners, Phrase can compliantly hire talent in over 160 countries. Contracts for new employees or contractors can be created effortlessly to meet all local requirements using the Lano platform. All team members are managed centrally within the platform, and new talent can be easily onboarded as needed. 

In addition to being able to hire talent globally, Phrase needed a cost-effective solution to reliably pay employees. Lano's payroll service allows reliable payments to employees and contractors worldwide in their local currency. All Phrase has to do is pay Lano a monthly invoice in euros, and Lano takes care of the conversion into the required local currencies.

Overall, the implementation of Lano's platform into Phrase's existing workflows took just a few weeks. Lano's support team demonstrated how to create contracts, onboard employees, and manage expenses, payroll, and benefits. Thanks to the user-friendly design of Lano's platform, no prior technical knowledge is required. Phrase is able to get up to speed quickly. Today, Phrase handles the onboarding of new employees and in a couple of hours, the new colleagues are fully onboarded and ready to go.


Global growth without legal and geographical barriers

Lano gives Phrase a single platform with all the features required to hire and manage a global team with all of the data centralized in one place. Phrase gained full transparency across their global staff and workforce costs. Stakeholders from different departments, including HR, finance, or legal, can quickly understand how many employees are currently part of the company, where countries they are working, or the current status of the onboarding process for new hires.

With access to local experts in labour law and payroll via Lano, Phrase's team is significantly relieved that it can focus its attention on business growth. The ability to not only hire worldwide through Lano, but also pay globally in 28 local currencies, removes all legal and geographic barriers to growing an international workforce. With lower costs for international hiring and payments compared to other providers, Phrase estimates that it saves several hundred thousand euros per year. The ability to hire the best talent that matches their current needs without compliance headaches and manage these employees within a single platform has rapidly improved the talent management processes at Phrase.
