The Collision of Payroll, HR, and Time & Attendance in the Cloud: It's Inevitable

660 views

Published on

We will explore what a cloud solution is and how a unified cloud solution helps businesses streamline Payroll, HR, and Time & Attendance.


Conducting Business in the Cloud

Today's business environment requires a configurable cloud based solution to meet the modern company structure. Multiple roles have different information needs and this requires the need to control access to proprietary and confidential data. Companies have to set access controls based on roles throughout all levels of an organization. Hourly employees clocking in and out, PTO request submissions, timesheets reviews and approvals are just a few examples of different tasks that require different access levels within an organization.
Now is the Time for Change

Now more than ever, businesses are embracing the use of cloud solutions to streamline the process of delivering information. Cloud solutions go beyond the distribution of materials to include payroll management and human resources applications. The use of this type of tool not only simplifies day-to-day operations, but also reduces operations costs.
Where Does the Information Go?

A cloud is an online network used to store and access valuable information so it is easily accessible to many people. The result is an intuitive SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) product that integrates with a businesses’ existing technology.

In an ever-changing, fast-paced work environment, businesses are turning to more efficient, economical approach to managing data distribution and maintenance. Cloud technology is becoming the go-to solution to meet these needs. It is an excellent solution for companies who are looking to better strategize their budgetary and technology efforts, while also integrating functionalities for important internal processes.
