What is Parallel Testing and How do you Plan for it?

by CompareHRIS on May 27, 2010

So you’re entering the implementation phase of your new HRIS/payroll software product.  How do you determine if your new HRIS/payroll system is performing as you expect it should?  It’s called Parallel Testing.  I hope this is a concept you are familiar with, especially if you are currently in the implementation phase of the project.  If not, you may need to take a step back and re-think this part of the implementation process.  In a nutshell, Parallel Testing is necessary to ensure that your new application is working accurately.  If you don’t perform Parallel Testing, then you risk the possibility of employees’ payroll being calculated incorrectly and we all know that this is not something you want to get wrong.

There are 4 basic steps in order to perform Parallel Testing and the process can be quite involved.  However, in order to perform these steps and experience the most accurate and satisfactory outcome, there are many considerations to make when in the planning stages.  Learn more about the process and how to plan for it by viewing Payroll Software Parallel Testing, part 1 of a 2 part series.
