Do You Have the Right Payroll Processing System in Place?

Many organizations still rely on manual time tracking and accounting systems to manage the payroll process or using separate, non-integrated systems for time tracking and payroll. 

The problem with relying on manual processes or disparate systems is that it creates a healthy environment for greater risk of human error, lost productivity, and damage to employee engagement — all of which can have tangible costs to a business.

The right payroll software can prevent payroll fraud, reduce errors and costs caused by payroll leaks, streamline inefficient tasks and manual processes, and automate HR compliance strategies with labor and pay laws, union regulations, and company pay rules.

Payroll Problems? Is it time to make the case for change?

Simply reducing the average payroll error rate from 1.2% to 0.7%, could reduce your payroll by tens of thousands of dollars for every 100 full-time employees (FTEs). Here’s an example of this calculation that really highlights the need for a company to have the right payroll system in place.

$907.82 average weekly earnings ˟ 50 weeks ˟ 100 FTE ˟ 0.5% payroll error rate difference = $22,695

This is a real justifiable reason to ensure you’re working on the right payroll system... and fixing errors like this can pay for the cost of the solution.

But how do you know if you have the right system in place?

Here’s a few key features and characteristics your payroll software should have:

  1. Complete time and payroll automation, eliminating timekeeping errors, with no manual transfer of data or manual calculations.
  2. Automatic flagging of exceptions that violate your organization’s policies and alert managers, so they can act on actions such as missed punches, early or late arrivals, and extended or skipped breaks — all of which can result in payroll errors
  3. Automation of data delivery for correctly calculated time worked or time off hours to your payroll system, so each employee check is cut right the first time
  4. Flexible payroll reports on-demand — payroll register, labor distribution, general ledger, and more — all customizable on-the-fly before finalizing and submitting payroll to help ensure accurate results
  5. Automatic payroll alerts throughout the payroll process to flag issues and reduce errors
