Payroll Systems cost employers money

7 June 2005

Inefficient Payroll Systems burning a hole in companies' pockets

Many businesses needlessly lose time and money through double- and triple-handling payroll information. That's according to Steve Nathan, managing director of specialist payroll software provider Comacc.

"Traditionally there are three steps to the process," explains Nathan. "First data is captured through time sheets, timeclocks or similar, then the data is processed through data entry - double handling - and then the information is delivered as payslips and management reports."

The real efficiencies come when the three areas of data capture, processing and delivery overlap as much as possible. Comacc's specialist payroll software integrates all three to eliminate costly double-handling of information.

Nathan says Comacc's integrated system generally halves the time companies spend on payroll, freeing up company resources to move forward.

Comacc customers also appreciate the company's proactive approach to upgrades, which it provides for free whenever a change in legislation requires. "We proactively go out to our customers with upgrades," says Nathan, "making sure they're prepared before they need it."

Companies who want to save money and time on payroll, and be constantly prepared for legislative changes - at no extra cost - can contact Comacc for an obligation-free demonstration at 0800 800 729. Comacc have also produced a free White Paper - "Future Trends in Payroll Management". For your copy visit
