Great Plains provides cost-effective tools for managing information about
employees and applicants. Tight integration among Great Plains applications
ensures information is instantly available across the system; since information
is entered once and available everywhere, opportunities for data entry
errors are reduced, Payroll and Human Resources professionals gain time
to spend on more strategic issues. Using Great Plains, you also can be
assured of accurate, timely pay runs, satisfying your number one customer
- the employee.
The Microsoft Great Plains Human Resources/Payroll Series is easy to implement
- a complete solution can be implemented in a few weeks. And the Human
Resources/Payroll Series is just as easy to use - that means real productivity
gains for your payroll professionals and lower consulting and training
costs, resulting in substantial ongoing savings for your organization.
Because Great Plains is a complete solution, integration with General
Ledger is seamless, as well. Payroll expenses, tax liabilities and other
payroll transactions are posted to General Ledger when they are posted
within Great Plains, again eliminating redundant data entry and improving
the efficiency of the accounting staff. All Microsoft Office products
are fully integrated allowing for full use of Excel, Word and other tools
to access payroll information.
The Human Resources/Payroll Series' Employee component tracks a broad
range of information, far beyond basic demographic data. Attendance is
tracked using time codes that also can be used to generate employee paychecks.
Because of Great Plains' tight integration, any benefit information entered
within the Benefits/Deductions component will appear automatically throughout
Great Plains. Deductions will be taken from employee paychecks automatically,
and information about employee benefits will be available to authorized
personnel throughout the system.
Employee pay is the fundamental contract between you
and your employees: They work to achieve your organization's goals, and
they have a goodwill expectation that they will be paid for their efforts
in a timely and accurate way. With Great Plains Payroll you can ensure
your organization meets this fundamental employee expectation.
Efficient data entry processes within Payroll, and seamless integration
with other Human Resources Series components, improve payroll specialists'
productivity and increase accuracy. Routines and checklists provide step-by-step
support for payroll specialists, reducing their learning curve and simplifying
On-screen inquiries and drill-down capabilities make it easy to uncover
key information quickly and simply. As with other components of the Human
Resources Series, Payroll offers comprehensive reporting capabilities
that help you ensure compliance with government reporting requirements
and provide valuable insights into your payroll expenses.
When you create paychecks, it's vitally important that taxes are calculated
accurately. Great Plains' Payroll tax maintenance service ensures the
accuracy of your payroll tax information, providing updated software whenever
tax rates or formulas change. With Payroll tax maintenance, you're assured
that your paychecks are calculated using the current federal, FICA and
state taxes, and you can be sure W-2 statements and other supported forms
are always accurate and up to date. The changes are simple for you to
install and guaranteed to be accurate.
If your organization has chosen to outsource its payroll processes,
Great Plains also integrates with leading payroll service providers such
as ADP, so payroll data can be easily imported into General Ledger and
Human Resources without re-keying.
Your employees can easily maintain their own personal information in Great
Plains Human Resources and Payroll. eEmployee is a web-delivered application,
so if your employees have access to the Internet, they can enter their
own changes, answer their own questions and resolve their own issues-quickly,
easily and conveniently. Passwords, document approval and role assignments
ensure that only authorized employees and personnel have access to the
records, which assures confidentiality. You decide which change requests
require approval before personnel files are updated, guaranteeing accuracy.
