We provide an HR payroll software consulting service for service bureaus and other remarketers who need payroll software that is a better fit than the one they have today and startups needing an experienced hand to guide them in purchasing their first payroll system.
Changing your HR payroll software, or migrating from a legacy human resource management system (HRMS), is a big decision. It’s important to find one that has the right functions, integrates with the systems that you and your clients work with, and is scalable over time.
The best HR payroll systems help you manage your clients’ recruitment, performance management, development, and compensation, of employees – and may be part of or referred to as a human capital management (HCM) software or a human resources information system (HRIS). Specifically, remarketers need HR payroll software that includes NACHA formatted ACH direct deposits, automated payroll tax management, reporting related to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), employee self-service (ESS), and much more.
Your HR payroll software system also needs to integrate with other ancillary service providers you work with, including 401(k), time and attendance, and workers comp providers.
Regarding scalability, some newer remarketers just need the basics. However, as you add more clients, the complexity of processing taxes, managing ACH payroll direct deposits, and much more will increase and you don’t want to be surprised by HR payroll software limitations.
We recommend that only once you’ve identified the best fit HR payroll software for your requirements that you then scrutinize cost. If a business case cannot justify the best fit, then it’s important to evaluate cost of the next best fit until you have something that fits your budget. Just consider the hidden and opportunity costs of going with software that doesn’t meet all your requirements like the best fit does so you’re comparing apples to apples.
Pilot Software Solutions has extensive knowledge on this topic because of three primary reasons.
First, we’ve been in the industry since 1997 through our sister companies Cachet Financial Services (ACH processing), PTM (payroll tax management) and Time Rack (time and attendance) that all work directly with approximately 18,000 service bureaus, PEOs, ASOs, staffing firms, CPAs, benefits brokers, HR consultants, and other remarketers.
Second, we are not limited to one HR payroll software platform as the vendors are. Our experience with a wide range of HR payroll software platforms allows us to find the best fit for you instead of trying to force a square peg into a round hole.
Lastly, working with us could save you an enormous amount of time that would otherwise need to be spent on extensive website searching, attending a wide variety of webinars and tradeshows, and talking to vendor salespeople.
If it’s time to change your HR payroll software or to implement one for the first time, consider taking advantage of our HR payroll software consulting service and 20 years of experience to help you find the best fit, as quickly and cost-effectively as possible – our work pays for itself.
