In this Digital Age, we are used to having everything we need, all at our fingertips. Why should your client’s payroll be any different? Cut down on the paper, the clutter and the filing. With Paperless Payroll, all your client needs is a current Web Browser and internet access to take their company’s payroll hi-tech and green.
Going paperless is simple, no software or downloads are required, and we even provide two distinct options depending on your client’s needs. If they want the reassurance of calling in their payroll with their designated, experienced Customer Service Representative every pay period, they can use Online Reporting to go paperless. This offers great personal customer service with anytime online access to important statements and reports for both your client and you too (with client authorization)!
Or, if your client wants greater control of their payroll, with the ability to add employees and adjust deductions, contributions, or rates of pay with just the click of a button, then Instant Payroll® may be best. This service is accessible anytime, anywhere, and provides your client with a real-time payroll preview, on-screen management reports, and much more.
Don’t waste time sorting through paperwork and searching for critical documents. With Paperless Payroll, everything you and your client need to run and evaluate their payroll can be found with just a click.
