Accuracy is a Must with Payroll

When it comes to large expenses for SMBs, payroll is considered to be one of the largest. This is just one of the reasons to ensure accuracy when it comes to your company’s payroll needs to avoid the loss of profits.

Avoiding problems with the IRS is the second most important reason. One tiny error or false move with your company’s payroll system could lead to issues with tax laws or regulations, causing the IRS to come knocking at your door.

In Depth Look at Employee Self Service Within Sage HRMS (Abra)

  • Payroll & Personal Information: Employees have the ability to not only view and print pay stubs; they can also review information regarding staff performance and goals.  In addition, staff can update their emergency contact information and current address information. This reduces the amount of time HR must dedicate to handling tasks related to basic employee management.
  • Time-Off Requests: Formal time off requests can be entered in the employee's personal portal. Once the time-off request has been sent, supervisors can be notified by the system immediately, allowing them to accommodate scheduling as needed.
  • Benefit Review: Employees can quickly view information regarding health benefits, 401k plans, and employee/employer contribution costs. In addition, employees can add or remove dependents from their benefit plans when necessary. 
  • Tax Information: When tax information must be changed, rather than requesting forms through HR, an employee can simply log onto their portal and make changes to their tax information such as name changes, number of dependents, and other elections. When it's time to send out W2s, the system will automatically adjust according to the information the employee provided through their portal.
  • Customization Options: Depending on your company's needs certain aspects of the Sage employee self service feature can be changed. This allows employees and employers total control over how each element of the system operates for better reporting and analytics.
