ICE Group Payroll Bureau commenced in 1980 when our company founder the late Tom
Cox rented some time on a Digital PDP11 Mini Computer and ran the payrolls for
a number of companies in the Galway region. As he found this service to be much
sought after in these days before the birth of the PC he progressed this service
and ICE Group purchased it’s own computer and provided the service full
Today we now use Sage Micropay as our chosen Payroll Software provider and
operate on a computer network. Some of our clients from the 80’s are still
with us today, a true independent testimony to the high service levels that
we provide our clients.
Reasons for Clients leaving our service are either that the Client has gone
out of business or have brought the service in-house. This trend was evident
during the rise of the PC and Payroll Software in the 80’ & 90’s.
In today’s cost conscious environment this Trend is increasingly reversing
with companies concentrating on what they are good at and leaving the Payroll
Administration to the Experts…..
The reasons for using a Payroll Bureau are varied
- Increased Confidentiality
