Electric Automobile and Clean Energy


This Fortune 100 company designs and manufactures electric vehicles and energy generation and storage systems. They’re building the most advanced high-volume electric vehicle production plant in the world – a 740-acre factory capable of manufacturing 50,000 electric cars per year. It’s expected to become a big part of the company’s growth strategy and help accelerate electric vehicle adoption in Europe.

The work will require 10,000 employees and four shifts. The goal for the corporate payroll team was full-service payroll implemented in 3 months. iiPay reached a business-as-usual state with 99.8% accuracy 2 weeks early.

Our client’s experience with a well-known payroll service led them to believe that a global payroll provider could not meet the new factory’s payroll operations requirements. The payroll team assumed they would have to find the systems and add to their payroll staff.

They approached iiPay because of our reputation for disrupting international payroll with exciting innovations. They soon realized that better technology and an in-house payroll function would not achieve the company’s objectives. To be completed in under three months, such a complex project would require a proven partner with advanced technology, collaborative integration expertise, and a complete team of experienced payroll professionals dedicated to the company’s German operations. It required iiPay.

  • Legislation and Regulation Compliance: iiPay shares regular legislative updates, significantly reducing the risks of unintended non-compliance.
  • Collaboration: We have monthly performance reviews to measure success and ensure we have a platform for discussing areas for improvement. These meetings are also an excellent opportunity to communicate changes in legislation.
