Universal Business Computing Company has added an anti-fraud forensic feature to its payroll software that tracks the history of changes made to employee maintenance.

The software is now able to track payroll tax withholdings, the demographic history of who was logged into the system, the historical prior value or rate of what has changed, and the date and time any changes were made.

“The payroll check preparation industry is transitioning to more efficient and profitable Web-centric practices,” said UBCC president Ken Garen, CPA (pictured)."One of the major, until now, unmet needs is to have full forensics capability to figure out 'who dunnit.'"

The new forensics tool protects the accounting professional in the event that a client makes an ill-advised change to an employee’s payroll tax withholdings, he noted. If an employee of the client or payroll processor alters the name and address information and prints a bogus series of checks, their digital fingerprints will remain because the software keeps a logs of all file maintenance and check-printing activity.

UBCC’s software costs $1,500 and up. For more information, visit www.ubcc.com
