What Is Cloud-Based Payroll?

Managing your company’s payroll is a complex task. No matter how careful you are, mistakes are incredibly likely. For a long time, there were a variety of programs that could help, but each one was different from the last and often left business owners feeling overwhelmed and confused.Now there is a better solution: cloud-based payroll. Cloud-based payroll uses a single system that takes all the stress and guesswork out of payroll. It combines benefit administration, time, attendance, and human resources into one comprehensive system.

The Cloud

You’ve no doubt heard the term “the cloud” used before, but it may not be entirely clear what it means. The cloud simply means using the internet to run applications and store data, pictures, and more. That data is then stored in secure remote servers.It’s a technological advancement has made running online programs far more convenient and more secure. And the best part is that with the cloud you no longer have to worry about software upgrades, running out of storage space, or backing up your data.

Why Cloud-Based Payroll?

Now that you know more about what the cloud is, we’ll take a look at why it’s a great option for your payroll.

  • Consolidation: As mentioned earlier, cloud-based payroll consolidates everything needed to do payroll into a single program. This helps save a significant amount of time and helps lower the possibility of errors.
  • Eco-Consciousness: Today, people are becoming far more aware of their environmental impact. Using a cloud-based payroll service helps because it makes everything paperless.
