Don’t Overlook Payroll and HR When Modernizing Technology

Today’s marketplace is fast-paced and constantly changing.Don't forget about Payroll and HR when modernizing technology Image

In order to keep up, many companies deploy powerful enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to manage financial activities, inventory, manufacturing operations, and other core processes. When replacing legacy systems, don’t overlook payroll and human resources activities. The right business solutions can streamline benefits management, payroll processes, and regulatory compliance.    

Businesses have a lot of moving parts and, in many cases, rely on disparate, specialty solutions to manage those operations. With growth, these complicated software systems are no longer as efficient as they must be to compete in today’s marketplace. Modern ERP, including Microsoft Dynamics® GP, offers a superior alternative by integrating all of those moving parts. When making this type of upgrade, be sure to determine whether the new solution can address your payroll and human resources needs as well.

Microsoft Dynamics GP offers strong payroll and human resources support; however, depending on your business operations, you may need something more. The right add-on solutions can further streamline these important activities. For example, paid-time-off (PTO) can be an attractive benefit when recruiting and retaining talented employees but it can also present a challenge when processing payroll. Comprehensive Leave Manager can streamline this important activity. You can configure as many PTO codes as you choose including vacation and sick time, administrative leave, comp time, and more. Instead of tracking these hours on paper or in spreadsheets, then transcribing data during payroll processing, Comprehensive Leave Manager can automate the entire process. Once rules are defined in Comprehensive Leave Manager, they are integrated with the Microsoft Dynamics GP payroll system and automatic calculations and processing can be completed with no extra steps required by your payroll team.

Many companies will also require additional support when preparing for Affordable Care Act (ACA) reporting. The data needed for reporting can sit in several software systems, making it difficult to capture, analyze, and report on the data required for compliance. ACA Compliance Solution can support data tracking and ACA reporting, whether your data is in a standalone payroll system or in an ERP solution.

Don’t overlook payroll and human resources activities when modernizing your business solutions. Contact Integrity Data for guidance and support when making sure your business systems are addressing all of your unique payroll and human resources needs.
