Integrated software solutions allow you to enter information into a database once and have different modules automatically updated with that information. This is crucial for companies that offer benefits such as health insurance to their employees. Using integrated human resources and payroll software, you can easily allow employees to pay their portion of their health care benefits by having the amount deducted from their paychecks each period.

Such flexibility can apply to all human resources activities. For instance, if your company has a cafeteria and employees are allowed to pre-purchase meals at a discounted price, someone in the human resources department can process the purchases, and the information will automatically be provided to the payroll department. Another example would be if your company offers employees membership at health clubs at reduced prices. While employees may not be able to pay the full fee at once, they might reconsider if they can have a small amount deducted from each paycheck.

When employees apply to use their vacation days or need to take sick days, both human resources and payroll need to be alerted. If you used separate programs in each department, there would be, at best, an unnecessary waste of time and paper while the two departments communicated. At the worst, the information would not be shared and employees would not be charged or credited properly for time that they take off under your policies.

Integrated Human Resources and Payroll Solutions Improve Efficiency

Integrated software applications for human resources and payroll provide a natural solution through which each area of the company can share the information with which they are provided. The increased efficiency means that requests can be processed more quickly. For example, when new employees begin work, they will see their contributions to their benefits take effect faster because all departments receive the same information at the same time.
