Cowgills Payroll lands on its feet

The payroll bureau of leading accountants and business advisers, Cowgill Holloway LLP, has won a major contract with Hotter Comfort Concept, the UK’s biggest shoe maker, to provide a fully managed salary processing service.

With a headquarters in Lancashire, and 38 stores across the UK, Hotter currently employs around 750 staff.  The company was founded in 1959 and introduced the Hotter brand in the early 1990s with the aim of creating the world’s most comfortable footwear. An unusual multi-channel business, Hotter sells its stylish shoes with built-in comfort via its rapidly expanding high street store portfolio, a 100 seater call centre and www.hotter.com.

The service from Cowgill Holloway, who have over 25 years’ experience of delivering payroll service solutions to major clients in both the public and private sectors, will assist Hotter in making considerable time and cost savings through easier access to information and improved service processes and enhanced governance.

Wendy Hunter, Senior Payroll Manager of Cowgill Holloway said: “This is another significant contract win for the payroll bureau of Cowgill Holloway as it further cements our position as a leading services provider within the SME sector. We will be working closely with the Hotter to enhance process efficiencies and  improve reporting capabilities. We are confident that our solution will provide the payroll service required by Hotter Shoes and ultimately lead to major business benefits.”

Rob Prill, Group Financial Controller at Hotter said: “We had many factors to consider when contracting a payroll provider including security, reliability and value for money. Cowgill Holloway ticked all these boxes, as well as working with us to deliver the payroll on time and on budget and we look forward to establishing a productive relationship going forward.”
