Ever been stuck at the office late running payroll? It’s a lonely feeling isn’t it? Wouldn’t you rather be at home with your family or your dog or at a movie?
Payroll technology has advanced rapidly in recent years and like everything, it’s gone mobile. We do so much on our phones and tablets these days, payroll should be no exception. A good online payroll service should let you run payroll from anywhere, whether it’s through an app or the web browser.
Mobile and online payroll should allow you, in a few swipes, to:
• Pay your employees.
• Pay and file payroll taxes.
• Change check dates.
• Access employee contact information.
• View payroll reports.
• Stop direct deposit.
• Stay up to date on payroll holidays, compliance and deadlines.
Doing business on the go is becoming more and more commonplace in this day and age. A recent SurePayroll survey found 54 percent of small business owners use smartphones in the sales process and 27 percent are using tablets to showcase products.
There’s no reason you can’t do the same with payroll. So enjoy your life. Get home. Take the payroll with you.
