Payroll was painful in our old system. We would kick payroll off every Monday morning and have to submit it by Wednesday, working up to the clock every time. Our team was working 12-hour days, and I knew we would end up losing good people if we didn’t solve these issues.
The issue was that our systems did not talk to each other and there was so much paper being shuffled back and forth. There was greater potential to miss things and make errors, so our finance team members would have to block their calendars for time every morning in case anything went wrong.
Now, payroll and finance teams aren’t wasting their time on clerical work. Having finance, human resources, payroll, expenses, and time tracking all in one system has streamlined our processes and we are able to get payroll done in three hours versus three days. Even better, our team is much happier and able to focus on more strategic and rewarding work.
