Every business has a different way to process employee payroll and in most cases, there’s room for improvement.

Some businesses process payroll manually from written notes and excel spreadsheets, while others use software that might not be the most intuitive or updated HR tool.

You might make the mistake of seeing payroll as merely cutting checks, leaving out time and attendance, benefits tracking, compliance, onboarding, and reporting, which are then locked away in separate vendor solutions. But sophisticated payroll vendors integrate everything into one seamless platform, dramatically reducing the number of separate systems, errors, and time related to the entire payroll and HR process.

In this payroll and talent management buyers guide, we’ll walk through key reasons why separate, disjointed HR solutions might be harming your business and key criteria to look for when switching payroll providers.
