Mercer partners Equus Software to manage expatriate employees

Mercer has partnered with Equus Software to provide an international assignment management software system to its employers.

The system, AssignmentPro, manages all aspects of expatriate administration, from payroll reporting to pay tracking.

It includes:

  • Integration with many HR platforms allowing for complete automation of payroll and email systems, as well as employee communications.
  • The ability to manage and store documents, such as contracts, securely in a single database.
  • Around-the-clock communication with assignees, suppliers and HR staff worldwide via web portals.
  • Simple calculating and reporting of cost projections, expenses and compensation in multiple currencies.

Barb Marder, global mobility commercial leader at Mercer, said: “Adding AssignmentPro to our global mobility offerings enables us to provide organisations with a single tool for more effectively managing international assignments.

“Not only does it simplify compensation and payroll reporting, it automates assignment tracking, expense management and workflow communications, resulting in significant administrative cost savings.”

Mark Thomas, chief executive officer at Equus Software, added: “The combination of Mercer’s knowledge and experience in global mobility consulting with AssignmentPro’s software capabilities for simplifying all aspects of expatriate administration is very powerful.”
