Using an automated payroll system can help small businesses save time and money. Many new and small business owners look for ways to cut costs, and manually handling payroll can seem like an easy option. But the time spent calculating and distributing paychecks adds up. This can lead to a loss of productivity. Manual payroll is also susceptible to incorrect calculations and inaccurate payment. By contrast, automated payroll systems mechanize the means of calculating and delivering worker wages. This, in turn, cuts down on manual processing time and improves payment accuracy.
Until recently, automated payroll software tools might have been out of budget for most small businesses. Advanced Micro Solutions aims to provide affordable but effective accounting tools to businesses of all sizes. If you’re in need of a semi-automated payroll tool, we have the software you need.
The Benefits of an Automated Payroll System
Automated payroll is designed to save time and labor. Rather than using manual data entry, these software tools organize, store, and utilize employee information to produce accurate payroll and tax deductions. Enter employee information once and let the software take it from there.
However, the benefits of automated payroll extend beyond storing and organizing data. They ensure accuracy in wage and tax calculation. Plus, data stored in the software is more easily manipulated to create reports. For example, AMS Payroll can automatically generate a Payer/Tax Summary, Employee Detail, and Worker’s Compensation report, among others.
