Ever since the time payroll software was introduced to the world, it has made a great change to the HR world. Earlier people were a little resistant as they used to trust themselves more than the technology. But, now the times have changed and most of the companies have started using online payroll software in India. First, the struggle was to make HR teams shift to payroll systems, the on-premise ones. Later, the on cloud payroll software came and then the businesses were reluctant in switching to that. So, in this blog, we will tell you some of the benefits of using online payroll software in India that you didn’ know of, maybe. Let’s begin!
- Employee self-service to help employees
Employees have always stayed out of this whole process. However, now with the introduction of ESS, this has been possible. Now, even employees have a lot of accessibility to the payroll and attendance data related to them. For instance, now employees can see and send corrections requests for their attendance and also download their payslip. Otherwise, they have to run errands to get their payslips earlier.
- Automatic diagnostic check before final processing
Not every online payroll software in India has this feature, however, there are some software that have this feature. Basically, this feature automates the whole checking and verification part of the payroll as well. So, before payroll is being processed finally, the software looks for discrepancies and then shows it to you so, that you can check and process the right salary amount to each employee’s account.
- Really cost-effective
We all know how time-consuming this whole process of payroll is. Without software it takes days and with it takes a few hours to do it. Moreover, when you use software there is no room for errors but manual tasks no matter how much concentration and time you put in, always have room for errors.
- Taxes and other compliances are taken care of well
Another issue without online software is this and it won’t be wrong to say that this is the biggest benefit of them all. The tax and employment policies keep changing in the mid or every year when the budget comes. With payroll software on the cloud, the best benefit is that the changes are made and updated by the vendor in the system so that the calculations are done as per the new announcements by the government and you don’t have to pay penalties later.
- Employees, HRs, Stakeholders get reminders
Payroll processing, taxation related things or making changes in attendance, now the online payroll software in India have also started sending reminders to the employees, HRs and stakeholders so that they don’t forget or miss on anything.
- Useful insights to help you improve
There are many insights that the payroll software can help the employer and HR with. For instance, with payroll report, the employer can now how much he is spending on manpower and how many leaves have been taken by employees, how many new people have been hired, what has been the hiring cost for them. Who in the existing teams has the potential to emerge as the leader in the future? How many have left the organisation and a lot more!
We hope the aforementioned points were able to make you realise and understand the benefits of using online payroll software in India. So, now if you don’t have a payroll software already, begin with your research and if you have one, contemplate if you should stick to it or get a new one?
