LeasePlan saves time and money with payroll solution

Vehicle and fleet management company, LeasePlan, is part of a global organisation. The company’s payroll application was outdated and relied on manual spread sheeting – it needed a more automated solution to save time, reduce errors and ultimately save money.

Additionally, there was the need to meet financial regulatory requirements. LeasePlan sought an IT partner to meet these needs. The company did not want implementation errors or headaches – the roll out had to be seamless.

Datacom’s expertise in payroll, along with our ability to adapt to unique customisation requirements, ensured we met these needs.

We provided LeasePlan with DataPay and DataESS, which made it easier for the company and staff to access information and to self-service leave applications online. This eliminated the need for paper forms.

The four-week implementation process was flawless. Our team also trained LeasePlan staff on the new systems, as they moved from the tired, older system. While staff found that DataPay was very different to its legacy processes, they were still able to reduce the time spent processing payroll by 50% on the first payrun.


  • The customisation of DataPay has saved hours of time spent – payroll used to take one full day; this has now dropped to one to two hours since first implementation.
  • Reports now take minutes versus hours.


"Working in partnership with the team at Datacom has been an effortless and enjoyable experience. The ‘added value’ payroll training courses run by Datacom are a great way to learn more about the legal side of payroll. We made the right choice.”
