Shireburn Indigo now has 70,000 users on the platform

Shireburn Software’s cloud-based payroll and time and attendance software reaches yet another milestone in user subscription, affirming the platform as a premier payroll and employee management solution in Malta.

We are thrilled to announce that Shireburn Indigo has reached 70,000 users locally, in just over two months after crossing the 60,000-user mark!

Indigo reaches 70,000 employees!

Our clients love the ability to do payroll while on the go, while also enjoying the benefits of applying for their own leave and viewing their payslips and FSS reports, amongst other features, in their employee portals. All this is thanks to Shireburn Indigo being a cloud-based solution, meaning you can access the platform at any time and from anywhere.

Every day, we are working together with our clients to migrate data from SPS to Shireburn Indigo. Around 25,000 of our users have joined Indigo after using other payroll systems or Excel. Shireburn Indigo makes the payroll process smooth and easy, and the platform’s HR  tools help meet all your company management needs. 

We want to dive into three areas that we think make Shireburn Indigo the success it has become: its cloud-based versatility and security, its own HR tools and functions, and the ease of calculating payroll for any-sized company.  

Doing payroll securely and quickly thanks to the Azure cloud

The appeal of working remotely coupled with the dependability of SPS has helped Shireburn Indigo reach the 70,000 employee milestone. Our clients praise Indigo’s web-based workflow and the smooth transition from SPS to the cloud solution.

Indigo’s move to Microsoft Azure gives our clients far more flexibility and freedom in how they do their business. Payroll and employee management tasks no longer need to be tethered to a single office desk or desktop computer. Multiple administrators can also access their company’s Indigo system remotely and work simultaneously. Additionally, cloud computing provides enhanced security and system backup reliability.

“Microsoft Azure has become the standard cloud platform, and this is because nearly all companies use it for their cloud-computing needs”, said Warren Schembri, our System Administrator Team Leader at Shireburn. “Microsoft provides some of the most advanced security technology in the industry, so you can be confident that your data is safely protected”.

Shireburn Indigo reduces administration headaches with HR tools

Calculating payroll is only a small part of running a business. Generating reports and managing employees make up the other significant parts of day-to-day processes. 

Shireburn Indigo has many HR functionalities to make everyday employee management a breeze. Take a look at how Shireburn Indigo provides useful HR functionalities for your organisation:

If you use BambooHR for your administration requirements, you can integrate it directly with Indigo.

Shireburn Indigo eases the payroll calculation process

Shireburn Indigo removes much of the manual calculating needed when adjusting payrolls for your employees’ vacations, sick leaves, and benefits. How does Shireburn Indigo help minimise extraneous manual calculating? 

  1. First, it uses pay items to calculate gross pay, which can be anything from basic pay rates, bonuses, fringe benefits, deductions, reimbursements, and a whole lot more. 
  2. Tax profiles can be linked with pay items so that the appropriate tax is deducted from the employees’ gross pay.
  3. All approved leave taken by your employees adjusts the total time worked by each employee in each payroll. (If you have Indigo Time & Attendance active, you can import and send attendance data to automatically adjust payroll calculations.)
  4. Come payday, just apply global pay items and make any minor adjustments before calculating and finalising the payroll!

New Time and Attendance software launched by Shireburn Software

Following the success of its award-winning Shireburn Indigo Payroll, the latest developments on the HR front were announced to more than 200 local businesses at a launch seminar organised by Shireburn last Thursday 15th November. 

With already more than 43,000 employees’ payroll and leave being managed by the Shireburn Indigo Payroll solution, Shireburn now launched their cloud-based Time and Attendance module to further streamline all people management processes for local businesses.

This will strengthen the Indigo platform with shift and attendance management, scheduling and rostering, exceptions handling, cost control and budgeting as well as vital automatic linkages with leave and payroll.

Local companies, particularly those that employ a dispersed workforce, or whose operations are dependent on efficient work scheduling, such as hospitality and manufacturing, can begin to make use of these additional features as of January 2019.

John de Giorgio, Managing Director of Shireburn Software explained that the successful take up and feedback on the Indigo platform has this far been highly positive, with over 2,200 Malta-based companies utilising Shireburn’s cloud solution increasingly on the rise.

“We’ve invested considerably in having the most practical solution designed and implemented by the team with the best skillset and latest technology to be able continue to serve our customer base, whilst developing the Indigo platform further. Work is also on-going to bring the company’s financial and inventory systems onto the Shireburn Indigo platform. Undoubtedly the key to our success has been the talent and innovation from within the company, and our uncompromising customer support service levels backing companies from those with 10 employees to those with over 1,500 employees” said John de Giorgio.

Shireburn Indigo’s cloud technology, coupled with a user-friendly web-based interface has made its popularity soar within the local HR and payroll community. In addition, its many unique features and self-service employee portal particularly useful for the online leave application and approvals process, have placed it at the forefront of innovation in its field, winning the MCA eBusiness Award for Best B2B application.

Shireburn this year also celebrates its 35th anniversary, having come a long way from its beginnings as an IT training company. Now with a team of 63, and a wide customer base, Shireburn continues to expand and grow its accolade of local and international awards.

Are you a Shireburn Payroll System (SPS) user?

Shireburn Payroll System (SPS) users are able to undertake an automated migration to Shireburn Indigo Payroll.  As announced in April 2018, support for SPS will no longer be available after December 2019.  This means that although you can continue to use SPS following this date, the system will not be automatically updated with any budgetary changes and Shireburn will no longer be providing support.

For regulatory compliance we therefore strongly suggest that you speak to us in order to discuss your migration and book a slot. Over 15,000 SPS employees have already migrated to Indigo.


Confirm your upgrade to Shireburn Indigo Payroll to take place by end of September 2018 and benefit from an additional 3 months free subscription.
