Here are the ways to simplify payroll management, reporting and compliance:

Cloud-based payroll systems:    

The cloud-based systems have already done wonders in terms of data storage, organization and security. Cloud-based payroll systems have the most secure control over sensitive data such as Social Security numbers, compensation, benefits and address information.

Upping process Automation:

Payroll automation creates error-free data eliminating the manual and redundant entry of the same information by many people. Additionally, modern payroll software accesses all relevant information necessary to automatically comply with ever-changing state and local tax codes, wage rates etc.

Bio-metric time and attendance:

Biometric eliminates ‘buddy punching’ and records late arrivals, early departures and unplanned absences. Employees can clock their attendance using their phone or any other device and geo-fencing can be used to draw boundaries around the site where employees can punch in and out which will help you to know the exact location of an employee.

Self-service portals:

Online employee engagement is the perfect epitome of modern payroll systems. The employee and manager self-service module manage personal profile information, notifications related to colleagues, departments, and company, and internal help desk for the service request that gives higher employee satisfaction. Right from the hiring process needs no face-to-face time with an applicant until the final interview.

Unified data access:

The data belonging to the areas of benefits administration, payroll, deductions, taxes, staff reviews and more is today integrated and consolidated across platforms so you can quickly access and reference it.
