How do employee self-service portals help in managing payroll issues

Traditionally, payroll functions within organizations operate like a black-box. The only thing that comes out for employees are payslips and tax reports (apart from salary credits, of course & issue of cheques in some traditional companies). Today, with the availability of online employee self-service portals for payroll, this process is getting a lot more transparent (yet secure & authenticated). This is an important factor to consider, when choosing a vendor for payroll outsourcing.

With individual logins to the online employee self-service portals, employees are now able to access their digital payslips, tax reports and a lot more 24*7. This is very convenient for employees, as they do not need to depend on their HR teams for every small requirement (related to payroll reports)

Here are some of the known benefits of having a fully functional online web portal for payroll

1) View/Access/Print payslips - Employees today need their payslip for a variety of reasons including opening of Bank accounts, applying for credit cards, applying for different types of loans, Visa applications etc. Requesting for a copy of the payslip from HR department every time tends to be a lengthy process. The online access helps solve this problem completely.

2) Making their own tax declarations - Several times, payroll teams make errors in tax computations purely because they have not factored the employee tax declaration appropriately (data entry errors). By giving the power of the declaration to employees via their logins, employees can be sure that their tax declarations are submitted right.

3) Grievance Management - With online payroll portals,provided by payroll outsourcing vendors like Paysquare it is possible to manage employee grievances via email. This offline process helps employees a lot, as they don’t need to leave their desks to take up their grievances with the HR/payroll teams. Typically resolutions happen over email and pretty quickly.

Paysquare, with its web based myPayroll™portal provides secure logins to employees.

While you process your payroll, you need to access this attendance data. Find out how easy it is to integrate the data from your time-based attendance systems to the payroll masters.

These tax regulations themselves do not remain static in nature and are subject to change quite frequently. However it is mandatory for companies to keep track of these changes and comply with these regulations at all times.

While some companies prefer to manage these activities in-house, they tend to be cumbersome and time-consuming. Also the implications of not doing it right are pretty serious. There could be hefty fines and penalities attached.

It is better to have a specialist do this for you. Paysquare provides end-to-end managed payroll services to its customers. Paysquare also manages all related statutory deductions and filings related to the same.

Handling confidentiality in payroll, think payroll outsourcing!

Organizations strive to keep payroll information confidential in order to avoid employee conflicts and to maintain a proper work environment. Information leaks can lead to loss of productive time for the employee concerned and significant loss of HR branding value for the organization, because of the negative word of mouth communication.

silent payzones and the advantages of payroll outsourcing

silent payzones and the advantages of payroll outsourcing

With payroll managed in-house, it is difficult to keep employees from mingling with the payroll staff and sneak away with insider information. Organizations create special secure zones for payroll processing, but find it difficult to restrict the distribution of sensitive payroll information. This creates significant rift in employees and HR teams have a tough time doing re-conciliation of salary data.

Payroll outsourcing eliminates this problem in totality. With payroll being managed, at a completely remote location, and by a team that is no way connected to the employees, leaks in confidential data are almost eliminated.

Paysquare has been focused on payroll outsourcing for over a decade now and processes over 100,000 monthly payroll records. Apart from confidentiality, Paysquare does offer a host of other benefits with its managed payroll services.

Does payroll software help in solving your payroll challenges? Time to think about professional managed payroll services

A lot of HR teams within organizations feel that automation and tools are the eternal answers that will help solve all the payroll problems. Companies invest in purchase of payroll software only to realize that their challenges get multiplied instead of being solved by such a decision.  What are the reasons then and how do you fix these?

payroll software vs managed payroll services

Software customization – The payroll software that you buy is usually generic. Most often, you will need to customize it to meet your requirements. Your vendor may do some tweaking, to achieve the sale, but may not necessarily support the ongoing customization requirements subsequently.  This creates the requirements for developing customizing resources in-house. (which may not be such a good idea?)

Updates & Upgrade path – Most software vendors will provide you with updates free as a part of their first year AMC. You will need to pay for these updates from the 2nd year. Any unauthorized customizations will create problems for auto-updates and will need support from the vendor (at what price?). The product will soon be launched in a newer version and you may need to upgrade your version to continue meeting your requirements. Have you considered these update and upgrade issues while making your software purchase?

Changes in HR rules & policies – HR  Rules and policies change so often, how can you manage to keep configuring them in the software. Typically users will be accounting professionals and you will need to go back to the vendor to do these additional configurations in the software.

Paysquare has been focused on payroll outsourcing for over a decade now. With payroll outsourcing/ professional managed payroll services, the software comes to you free, as long as you continue to use our services. You do not need to worry about maintenance, updates, upgrades, customization or configuration. Our professionals will take care of you so that you can continue to focus on your business. Now isn’t that music to your ears?
