A big challenge for many small businesses is knowing which award to use for new employees. Modern awards are complex, and keeping track of penalty rates and loadings can be a long and drawn-out process.

QuickBooks Online Payroll holds the key to simplifying award interpretation for employers and businesses with new and updated payroll integrations from KeyPay.

Using the Payroll integration with KeyPay‘s latest upgrade can halve the amount of time you spend on calculating payroll.

Rostering & Scheduling is becoming easier with all major Accounting software programs

It’s difficult to make sure that people in a company are coordinated and working on track. And admin tasks like recruiting, onboarding, rostering and paying staff can add hours and hours to an employers workload (or that of their payroll administrator or office admin manager)

Employers can save time and money by integrating payroll and workforce management software and using employee self-service functionality.

Planday staff scheduling and rostering

Xero recently purchased workforce management platform Planday, which shows the growing importance of scheduling features in software.

Planday takes your KPIs and matches staffing needs and payroll costs to help businesses hit their targets.

Planday’s self-service mobile app means greater flexibility for employers and staff to schedule, manage payroll and leave, and communicate directly.

MYOB seems to be taking a more traditional route and building rostering and scheduling functionality into their existing software. They’ve introduced smart rostering, attendance tracking for shift workers, and have integrated staffing, rostering and payroll.

MYOB self-service function enables workers to make shift changes, request leave, access updated rosters, and communicate with other staff.

What makes KeyPal so good?

Software programs like Xero can be used for payroll but for businesses that have more than a handful of employees, KeyPal lets you navigate from employee to employee with the click of a drop down tab.
