We’ve discussed a lot about implementing GHR Multi-Tenant Payroll on this blog, so let’s dive into some of the specifics of the system. Payroll History Import is a business class delivered by Infor that allows you to bring S3 data over to GHR. This means you still have access to historical data and the ability to review payroll, the pay employee paychecks, and other kinds of details in GHR, instead of having to access S3 data. As we have said many times before, you should limit what you bring over to that GHR system. We recommend no more than one year of data, unless it is detrimental to your current business processes. Later on, we will discuss the ramifications of bringing over more than a year – it is feasible and we have done it before, but you want to consider what’s absolutely necessary as far as historical data.
Of course, this payroll is the re-import and it contains three main records: employee payments, wages, and deductions. This may seem like quite a lot of stuff to go through to load all that data, but it comes down to a handful of steps that you should pay attention to throughout the conversion process. The core of this is the RPI interface, which is the whole aspect of Payroll History Import. We built an interface to extract that data from all the main S3 tables related to payroll, and we're using parameter to control what you're trying to extract out of the legacy system. We’ll dig more into this interface and its parameters next week!
