Pay Frequency

Manage multiple pay frequencies in your organization, supports Weekly, Fortnightly and Monthly. Further filter your payrun by employee settings including department, class, location, pay date and country.

Easy To Use Step Based Process

Simple step based process takes you through selection, time entry, variable entry, processing, and pay through to posting. At each step data is presented cleanly to ensure focused timely completion.

Time Entry Step

Review summary of employee time collated based on the employee’s configuration. Summary automatically includes public holiday’s and approved leave requests*. Summary time can be adjusted as necessary to reflect overtime payments, whilst ensuring OTE (ordinary time earnings) remains unaffected.

Variable Entry Step

One Off Payment Entry Step

Prior to processing; enter individual one off values for bonuses, commissions or expenses to be included on the employees pay.

Approve and Post Step

Review the detail and variance report comparing gross and net pay against the previous payslip. Approve and post with options to override pay date and posting period.

Adjustment Runs


Quite often adjustments need to be made to reflect corrections, or payments of one offs outside of the normal pay run. These can be easily achieved with an adjustment pay run, offering options as to whether leave should be accrued, and whether tax calculations should take into account other payslips within the period.

Autopay

For companies running payroll with minimal variations, automate the process between steps using Autopay. Select your start and end step and Autopay will complete the process in the background, sending you an email on completion.

Rollback

Full capability to rollback any payrun; from and to any stage. Rollback ensures all records are rolled back and year to date fields are recalculated.
