Kellogg implements Meta4

  • Kellogg chooses Meta4 PeopleNet for global payroll management in Latin America under SaaS delivery

With 2010 sales of nearly $12 billion, Kellogg Company is the world’s leading producer of cereal and a leading producer of convenience foods. Kellogg products are manufactured in 18 countries and sold in more than 180 countries worldwide. This worldwide company selected the Meta4 PeopleNet solution for managing the payroll of its 4,000 employees in the Latin American region.

The global HR technology solution Meta4 PeopleNet addresses Kellogg’s payroll and budgetary management processes, cutting costs while optimizing information exploitation and analysis. Similarly the scheduling tools together with the employee and manager self-service portals that come with the solution also enable Kellogg to streamline their human resources management processes, improving internal communications between the workforce and the HR department. By choosing SaaS delivery of the PeopleNet application, Kellogg can concentrate wholly on their HR and payroll processes and functionalities, while Meta4 takes care of hosting, maintaining and evolving their solution.

One of the main objectives is to provide managers with complete, integrated, and up to date information at the regional level, independently of geographical location in any of the 6 countries in Latin America where the company has presence: Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia, Brazil, Ecuador, and Guatemala. Precisely because PeopleNet is designed for global markets with different local needs, Kellogg chose it to cover their need for consolidating and improving their payroll processes in a shared services centre operated from Mexico. The specific needs of each of their geographies could be easily addressed in a single global solution through the available multi-currency, multi-country, multi-language features, among others.

This new contract strengthens Meta4’s “Global HR SaaS” line of solutions. Meta4’s growth in the private and public sectors has been highly notable. Companies in the region worth mentioning who have adopted their tools for modernizing human capital management are: ICA, CIE, BIMBO, Grupo Carvajal, SODIMAC (Columbia), Word Vision in USA, and now Kellogg, managing over seven million employees in the region with “Global HR SaaS” solutions. At the international level the company has currently over 100 contracts within the public administration and government sector in Latin America, positioning itself as the global HRMS leader in the market.
