RALEIGH, NC and SALISBURY, UK--(Marketwire - May 28, 2008) - Patersons HR and Payroll today announced the latest updates to its recently launched online community, which is intended to serve customers, partners and prospects. The newest version of this portal includes a press room and events schedule, as well as expanded functionality for clients, partners and prospects.

Now included on the community website is a meeting room, which features regularly scheduled webinars on a variety of global HR and payroll topics. Delivered by industry experts, Patersons' webinars represent opportunities for community members to learn about industry trends as well as product enhancements, while giving them the chance to get answers to their questions real-time. Recent "meeting room" events included a webinar on global reporting and the next event will be a 12 June discussion on how technology can compliment rather than dictate global HR strategies. Meeting room webinars can be replayed and details about future events can be accessed at the community site.
