The technology significantly reduces potential for fraud and timekeeping disputes as it enables payroll managers to compare actual hours worked against planned hours, therefore significantly reducing the chance of over- payments.

An integrated Workforce Management System will include scheduling, payroll and invoice reporting so that employees can be allocated, pay rates assigned and payroll extracts can be produced. Seamless integration means that tailored reports can be created quickly and easily. The method and frequency of how people are paid can have considerable impact on how they manage their finances and how they approach their daily duties. Financial stress can be a distraction at work for employees, and many employers recognise the direct impact it can have on productivity and engagement.

The digital streamlining of payroll should be a priority for employers, regardless of industry or size. That’s why there is an emergence of new technologies that aim to transform payroll for the benefit of both employers and employees, and more so in commercial cleaning and facilities management sectors where hours and locations can be varied.

If we assess the efficiencies of payroll processing across different businesses and roles, we need to establish what is important for payroll back office staff, and what their key pain points are. Despite the rise in digital processes and the use of smartphones, there remains some level of resistance from the payroll administrators, who are reluctant to adopt online employee portals.

Streamlining payroll processes and adopting intuitive cloud-based management technology in your FM or cleaning company can be a double winner; meaning both the employer and the worker get to realise the benefits. With many systems already under pressure, payroll is a drain on administration and often takes several days to complete.

Providing your employees with a portal, wallet or app that easily shows them things like wage slips, money transfers, PAYE, requests for drawdowns etc. means they are in

control and responsible for their financial wellbeing and financial visibility. As a business, you will benefit from the rewards that this automation brings, and will quickly realise the value that cloud-based systems can bring to your company.
