For The First Time, Payroll Service Bureaus Can Deliver HR Content To Clients Through Shugo’s Secure Alert Platform

“We know service bureaus want their providers to be working together. Through this integration, the bureaus and their clients will be able to stay current on HR best practices from within their Shugo PUSH subscription," explained Nathan Christensen.

HRAnswerLink and Shugo, both leaders in delivering back-end business technologies for small businesses, jointly announced the release of a new integrated solution for payroll service bureaus nationwide. The solution combines HRAnswerLink’s industry-leading Human Resources content with Shugo’s industry-leading delivery platform. Now, payroll companies who deliver information to their clients through Shugo’s PUSH technology can seamlessly integrate HR news and best practices to their messaging suite.

“We are thrilled to be working with Shugo on this project. We share a similar vision – making business simpler for service bureaus and their clients,” explains President and co-CEO Nathan Christensen. “We know service bureaus want their providers to be working together. Through this integration, the bureaus and their clients will be able to stay current on the latest HR news and best practices right from within their PUSH subscription.”

The collaboration between HRAnswerLink and Shugo marks the first time two business service providers have collaborated on behalf of payroll companies, with the unique needs of the payroll industry at the forefront of their joint offering. The foundation of this collaboration is a shared focus on technologies for payroll companies that deliver a simple yet valuable experience. Payroll companies will be able to connect their branded HR Support Center from HRAnswerLink with their PUSH service from Shugo to deliver breaking HR news and guidance to their clients via email or text message.

“PUSH has been identified as a technology innovation within the payroll industry and one of our major objectives this year was to expand the content delivered on behalf of our clients,” says Rick Hymanson, founder and CEO of Shugo. “HR alerts were a natural fit. We knew HRAnswerLink was the ideal partner because of their innovative thinking, technology and reputation. Jointly, we work with a large number of independent payroll companies who will now benefit from this collaboration.”
