The Challenge

The Solution

In November, Yasha engaged with Juniper to explore a payroll solution that would not only address their immediate needs but also provide a robust and reliable service in the long term. Juniper's dedicated payroll team worked closely with Yasha to understand the school's requirements and presented its comprehensive payroll services, emphasising the user-friendly portal and dedicated bureau service team. Juniper's specialisation in education was highlighted, assuring direct access to an assigned team member via a dedicated phone line for immediate advice and support.

After evaluating multiple providers, the team was particularly impressed by Juniper's commitment to providing a seamless and dependable service. The unique features of Juniper’s payroll portal and software, along with the company's unwavering dedication to education-focused payroll services, were key factors that convinced the school that Juniper was the right fit for its payroll needs.

The Outcome

As they progress with Juniper, Yasha and the team are gearing up for their first parallel run in January, following comprehensive training. Initial feedback from Yasha has been positive, citing the onboarding team as "fantastic" and expressing confidence in the service's smooth continuation.

This case highlights Juniper's commitment to overcoming challenges, providing tailored solutions, and ensuring a seamless transition for schools seeking reliable, education-focused payroll services.
