Payroll Solutions are often referred to as the “lifeblood” of any organization because of their direct connection to the livelihood of all employees. In order for payroll to function it needs to account for employee work time, federal and state taxation, international standards (if applicable) and workforce issues. Payroll can be administered in-house using a software solution or completely outsourced to a third-party provider. Employers will often re-evaluate their payroll systems every 3-5 years. Recent development in payroll software has moved ordinary payroll systems more in the direction of HRMS platforms by taking on HR functions such as time and Attendance and benefits.
