Frequently Asked Questions

While a stand-alone payroll solution may be sufficient to maintain your business operations, it may eventually fall short as your business grows and more tasks and expectations are required of your payroll and back office staff. Using specialized construction payroll software may help you reduce a lot of manual tasks and automate workflows and processes that are specific to the construction and service industry. Construction payroll software should be able to handle construction-specific payroll scenarios, including the ability to: 
  • Instantly transfer timesheets and payment details from the field as entered.
  • Easily address multi-company, multi-province, multi-state, and union payroll processing.
  • Handle multi-union, fringes, and burden easily.
  • Construction-specific integration between payroll and the field.
  • Allocate payroll by foremen or other individuals, cost codes, and cost types.
If payroll is integrated with jobs, services, and financial records, you can analyze hours, calculate pay, and process paychecks in real time. You can also see project costs and the source of discrepancies through advanced reporting.

Direct Deposit is a process that involves paying your staff directly to their bank accounts, as opposed to paying them by check or cash. This method of payment promotes convenience for those involved by reducing payroll processing time and manual document handling.

Employees enjoy the hassle-free nature of getting paid directly to their bank accounts. Human resources or payroll departments no longer need to remind employees to pick up their checks or mail them out.
