A club steeped in history, Fulham FC has proven itself in English football since its origin in 1879, with the team currently plying their trade in the English Championship. The club has a wide and dedicated fan base — and to keep match days (and beyond) running smoothly they employ over 500 workers, ranging from the restaurant workers and stadium staff, to top level-executives and the players themselves, and everyone in between.
Payroll is the greatest expenditure for any organisation, and, before Replicon, Fulham FC’s payroll was demanding enough to have two full-time employees dedicated solely to its management and handling. With so many different employees working for so many different departments — many of them collating their varied time data on paper timesheets — these two dedicated payroll employees had their work cut out for them when it came to getting payroll completed accurately and on time.
“To put payroll in more context, on match days we have everyone from interns and stewards to senior executives and football players and everyone in between working. We range from casual stewards and turnstile operators, groundsmen, first-aiders and medics, sales and marketing executives and IT and facilities teams, with a number of employees having cross-departmental functions.”
— Ben Haworth, Financial Controller at Fulham.
