What is Payroll Software?

Payroll managers at SMEs or large companies have their work cut out for them, especially if there is a high number of employees and lots of variation in the amounts and specific details of payslips. They need to be able to keep track of any advances paid, check the various payroll deductions and allocations (supplementary insurance and other employee savings plans for example) and generate each payslip in accordance with each employee’s situation.

This can, therefore, become a time-consuming and laborious task. However, these days it is possible to automate all or part of a company’s payroll management operations using a payroll software solution, including payslip generator software. By using a payroll software, the whole salary process is simplified, and legal and social security obligations can be more efficiently managed (e.g. various declarations relating to social security payments and deductions, social data, and so on).

The Payroll software makes it possible to create computer files for each employee. Payslips are then generated automatically once simple data updates have been completed. The company becomes more productive and efficient. Payroll software also makes it possible to produce a large range of important data, giving managers a real-time and comprehensive view of human resources (payroll, pay and accounting statements, expense reports, leave, etc.).
