It's Time to Put Human Resources and Payroll in One System

As we begin a new decade, an increasing number of organizations are implementing new human resources information management systems (HRIS) that include the functionality for payroll processing.

Are you still using old technology and old work processes to manage your HR and Payroll processes? If so, it is time to explore making an investment in new HRIS and Payroll processing technology.

Old paper-based employee time collection systems are being replaced by new Internet- based time collection systems. Old systems that separate HR and payroll information are being replaced with integrated HR and payroll applications. Paper and inefficiency are out, and technology is in.

If you still record and track employee vacation time, employee training records, employee evaluations, and prospective employee/recruiting information in separate, paper-based systems, you are compounding your efforts in managing all that information.

The demands on your time are only increasing. Management has asked you to do more with less. Given this current and probably permanent situation, why would you continue to struggle with paper-based, disjointed, nonintegrated systems? Government compliance reports, such as 401k discrimination testing and EEO reporting, are becoming more numerous and complex. Why would you try to manage these compliance requirements in a labor-intensive environment, and not take advantage of technology?

Schneider Downs has the experience and knowledge to assist your organization in implementing the latest HRIS and Payroll processing technology. Products such as Sage ABRA Suite and MIP Fund Accounting software are designed to make your life easier, not harder. These products are fully integrated and can eliminate the vast majority of the paperwork involved in tracking recruiting efforts, employee information, training information, compliance reports and payroll processing.

These products, as well as others, are designed to streamline the normal and routine HR and payroll functions, in order to allow you to focus on more important issues and demands. It is only a matter of time, before the weight of these paper-based, nonintegrated systems becomes too much, and your systems collapse.
