Does your company extend into other countries? In that case, you probably spend more and more time figuring out how to connect all your company’s general internal processes with local legislation. Get inspired by all the corporations that also have to deal with it, because international companies need to have unified processes across all countries.
Local legislation can always be a barrier to this, as it’s different in every country. How to align a solution for employees who use the same company systems, but still need to follow their own countries’ legislation regarding payroll and attendance?
Medium sized and large enterprises with a global focus cannot function today without good HR systems that cover global processes, which are the same for every country. Here are few examples of these processes: compensatory changes, organisational structure, organisational changes or off-boarding. Thanks to these processes, a company can track the growth in employee numbers or turnover and have a global insight into the data. An HR management system that covers this type of data is, for instance, Workday.
But what about the processes that are absolutely crucial for employees’, legislatively critical and on top of all that: different for every country? These are mostly time & attendance and payroll processes. Is it good for companies to invest in one solution, but with difficult customization?

Connecting global software with local solutions
The current trend in this area is synergy GLOBAL/LOCAL: global software and local solutions. This means to leave the expertise of difficult processes in the hands of real experts and rely on a local system to connect to the global system, like Workday.
This is also the way that TULIP works. TULIP is a global cloud solution of Slovak origin, currently used by hundreds of companies over 20 countries. It can cover the needs of global corporations with thousands of employees over many different areas, attendance and payroll workflows included. TULIP also provides a connection to payroll software either via direct interface, data inputs or via an API. The client doesn’t need to install anything, employees only get log-in information or log-in via SSO.
TULIP as an attendance management system is highly customized to client’s needs, it covers all legislation requirements. There’s simple attendance management, different absence requests, quotas and also a shift plan. The shift plan is unique which allows team leaders to effectively plan/change shifts, to have an overview of the team, changes and absences. And all of this is available in a user friendly interface with a modern design. The shift plan provides some additional features such as: customized tags, filters, colourful differentiation of shifts (morning, afternoon and night shifts), saving frequently used actions, so called ‘favourites’, comfortable absence requests creation directly in the shift plan or a useful vacation plan. Shift plan, of course, follows all legislation.
So, if your company is international, you should look at local solutions. Creating your own system would cost you an unbearable amount of time and money.
