Though your employees are the lifeblood of your company, it will be unfair to expect that they can perform and manage every work manually. Even after being qualified and professionally trained, no employee can eliminate the chances of human error. In fact, this becomes a major problem for those who must manage and prepare huge reports like the payroll report. That situation becomes more complicated for big companies with thousands of employees. This is where you need the help of the payroll software.
The following are the some of the major features of payroll software:
With payroll software you can get access to a wide variety of pay types, be it for the labor classes or based on shift premiums on a flat amount/ percentage. There are some companies that follow a complex payroll structure, i.e. their payroll needs to follow the public sector pay grades or unionized rules. In addition, some companies opt for pay for performance or step increases payroll structure. Payroll software can be helpful even in such complex payroll environments. The software provides rule-based payroll to trigger pay types based on the company’s events or activity codes.

The payroll software comes with devices that gather time information and record them in your payroll system. Some of them come with time clocks or badge readers, while others include biometric devices for time keeping. Aside from attendance records, the biometric devices that use eye scanning or fingerprint technology are also used for security access authorizers.
Another feature of payroll software is leave-tracking. You can keep a record of the leaves taken by your employees. This may include leaves taken for illness, maternity/ parental leave, disability, vacation, or other absences. You can even create custom absence codes for unique requirements. The reporting tools will also help you to identify the leave taking trends and patterns of your employees. In addition, it will assist you to create government reports. With HR software, you can even track and approve leave and vacation requests of your people online.
