Should Your Company Use A Payroll Software?

Should Your Company Use A Payroll Software?

META DESC. Learn how an HRIS and payroll software could increase your employees’ happiness, and your company’s productivity.

Running a micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) in the Philippines has its fair share of rewards and challenges. One big challenge they faced at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic is digitization.

According to a study by Statista, Philippine MSMEs were mostly ‘digitally indifferent.’ That is, they didn’t see digitization as a necessary step for their business. When the pandemic broke out, they were caught unaware. As a result, many of these business owners simply did not know where to start when it came to digitizing their company processes.

One glaring concern was how to go about HRIS & payroll processes amid work-from-home arrangements. It was important that digitization could help them with:

  • Data security

With employees BYOD (‘bring your own device’ as popularized by Intel), concerns of data breaches were suddenly brought to light. Companies didn’t like the idea of exposing their information to ‘hackers.’

  • Employee data organization

Philippine HR processes are heavily manual. Many companies only switched to digital out of necessity.

  • Employee engagement

Without face-to-face interaction employers worried that employees would be less engaged, less collaborative, and less eager to work.

  • Timekeeping and attendance

Biometrics were the norm for many companies in the country. With the work-from-home arrangements, many companies sought out attendance-tracking software to keep employee attendance records. This would also help them match employee salary by keeping track of hours rendered.

  • Automated payroll

Even the HR personnel found themselves working from home at the very height of enhanced community quarantine in the country. Many records were left on paper at the physical offices. Keeping track of everyone’s payslips also proved to be taxing. What’s more, HR employees also didn’t know where to start learning automated and digitized processes!

One solution has proved to make light work of these concerns: a full-suite HRIS & payroll software.

Easy-to-use HRIS and payroll software by GreatDay HR

As an MSME, you’re probably thinking: “isn’t investing in a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) and payroll software only for big companies with over 500 employees?”

The short answer is no. Automating HR processes isn’t just for the big players. Your company can do it even with just 50-100 employees. With the emerging times of digitization, more and more start-ups in the Philippines are switching up their processes. This includes automating their payroll systems. Some companies have also improved their internal operations through HRIS. If company size is one of your concerns, we’re here to tell you that your 50-strong company definitely needs payroll software.

According to ??Dakila Socrates Lavilla, the Risk Assurance Director of PwC Philippines, “Fostering digital transformation today requires more than adopting new technologies. It means creating environments where businesses can leverage innovation to deliver meaningful change that drives positive business outcomes.??”
