How does an integrated HR and Payroll software- HROne work?
At the time of recruitment, a salary structure can be automatically created for accurate payout calculation of the new joiner. Integrating the two systems will result in auto-copying of the CTC mentioned in the employee’s offer letter so that the correct salary gets credited to his/her account every month.
Employee Life Cycle Management
If the employee lifecycle data is not in sync with payroll system, some employees may receive salaries even after their employment is terminated. If the two software is integrated, it auto-updates the relevant information of the new joiners and also the ones leaving the organization.
If time & attendance data is not recorded and sent properly to the payroll system, salary for extra days (the whole month) may be credited to employees at times. Further, if the employee wage report is generated late, the entire salary processing would get delayed. With the integrated system, the attendance-related data is automatically provided in the form of paydays for salary calculation.
If you don’t combine HRMS and payroll software, the performance ratings or incremented salary would not reflect in the system, and the employee may get the same payout even after the appraisal. When you switch to the integrated HR Payroll System, the promotions, appraisals, or hikes in salaries will be captured and updated automatically.
When an integrated HR and payroll software is incorporated, you can auto-run reimbursements and pay your employees for the bills raised in the next month’s salary cycle or as defined. In the absence of a unified system, any withheld expenses or arrears from the employee’s previous monthly payout may not get reimbursed timely resulting in employee dissatisfaction.
