- Lack of reporting capabilities
Salaries are often a company’s biggest cost, meaning it’s vital for finance teams to be able to report and analyse payroll data and its impact on the bottom line. Say yes to having access to the information you need, when you need it.
- Supporting financial wellbeing
It is estimated that employee financial problems cost businesses 4% of productivity. Your payroll software should serve as the ideal foundation for being able to say yes to driving forward positive discussion and action around employee financial wellbeing.
