Import Time to Payroll Batches

Improve efficiency and save time by importing time directly into Payroll Batches. This helps eliminate the need for an import scenario or the use of Time Management.


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

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

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 local, state, and federal taxes.

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

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

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

Track employee deductions and 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 benefit and the deduction.

Use multiple reports right out of the box, and review payroll data quickly through inquiry screens. Get access anytime, anywhere.
