  • Crew Time Entry

    Construction and service companies have crews which work similar hours. Entering work hours by the team reduces the order entry time and errors.

Important Features of Payroll Management System

  • Pay Groups
  • Employee Classes
  • Tax Rates
  • Payroll Attributes
  • Earning Type Codes
  • Overtime Rules
  • Deductions and Benefits
  • Reporting

Pay Groups

Set up multiple pay groups so that you can process different pay period schedules (such as weekly, bi-weekly, or semi-monthly) and include different deductions and benefits depending on the specific group and period. Increase security by using User Roles within Pay Group to achieve segmented views and access across your organization.

Employee Classes

Set defaults that will apply at the time of employee setup. These defaults include hours worked per week and year, location, WC Code and PTO accrual.

Tax Rates

An outside service provides tax rates at no additional cost to you. This ensures that the tax tables will always be up to date with federal, state, and local taxes.

Payroll Attributes

Payroll attributes track specific items for your state or location, such as information for ACA or W-2s. This gives you significant flexibility about what can be tracked for each state and locality. You can also add company-specific attributes.

Earning Type Codes

Earning type codes are easy to define. Unlike with other systems, you don’t need hundreds of pay codes—you can just use a few easy-to-remember earnings codes.

Overtime Rules

Easily configure a list of overtime rules to be applied automatically to your employees’ checks. You can set daily or weekly rules, and can use the state, project, or union as additional parameters.

Deductions and Benefits

Track employee deductions as well as the portion paid by the organization. If the deduction and the benefit are related to each other, you can simply enter the information once for both the deduction and the benefit.
