The cloud-based offering gives users the ability to complete all payroll and human resource functions themselves, or grant their employees and business partners permission to perform tasks in a secure environment. Users can also customize their desktop and create custom workflows to work how they want and with greater productivity.
Paired with Paychex Mobile for smartphones and Paychex Online for tablets, the new platform also gives clients the ability to start, edit, and submit payroll on the go and at any time.
Specifically, the new Paychex platform uses a single source of data to power all functions and applications, allowing administrators to update an employee record while in one application, such as payroll, and have it immediately available in other applications, such as time and attendance. There are also more than 140 standard, customizable, and exportable reports for businesses and their accounting partners.
“We developed this next generation of Paychex technology using a ground-up approach. By doing this, we're able to drive the latest features and functionality to a broader range of clients, and give them the options they want today, with the foundation for the options they'll need tomorrow,” said Michael Gioja, Paychex senior vice president of information technology, product management, and development. “We're combining our most intuitive user experience that offers integration across product lines on one interface, with broader reporting and analysis capabilities for all client data to give our clients greater control and increased personal productivity.”
