Compliance is always a hot topic for payroll and HR departments, especially right now. The COVID-19 outbreak has added more stress and uncertainty as businesses fight to keep employees healthy, safe, educated, and continue operations. The recently enacted Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) offers some relief for the lucky few able to apply for compensation, but that comes with more documentation and reporting requirements.
Many companies struggle with compliance changes whether it is an unexpected disaster like the current pandemic, or ongoing state and federal regulations like the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Keeping up with changing regulatory requirements can be a full-time job, and that’s a salary many businesses cannot afford.
How Western Computer and ADP Help
Western Computer partners with ADP, the leader in payroll and HCM solutions, for many reasons – integration, insight, and innovation. In addition to the most powerful and comprehensive functionality on the market, ADP shares our goal of empowering businesses and people to secure more value from their technology solutions.
How does this partnership help you with compliance and insight?
Automatically Connect Your Business, Financial and People Data
When it comes to payroll, outsourcing is a smart choice for companies of all sizes. However, you don’t want your payroll and HCM data stuck in siloes or you’re just wasting the time you wanted to save by outsourcing in the first place.
For example, imagine if you could relax as each employee’s time and expenses report requests are sent directly from Business Central to ADP to process with payroll and then automatically back to your corporate general ledger. No extra data entry. No delays. With the ADP integration to Dynamics 365 Business Central, you can:
- Save time on data entry across the board
- Ensure paychecks are on time and accurate
- Create tailored compliance reports from multiple data sources
- Establish a secure audit trail
- Reduce errors and risk of penalties
Make Strategic Decisions with Next-level Insight and Reporting
Standard payroll and HR reports do not always allow you to see the big picture of your business. With the ADP integration to Business Central and Power BI, you can create dashboards and reports from all your data. Another perk of ADP is they are an innovative company. Like Microsoft, ADP includes advanced insight powered by AI and machine learning, as well as 90+ metrics from aggregated industry and labor data you can use to create predictive models and take proactive action.
Your future may look very different today than it did 6 months ago. Investing in deeper data insights now is a decision that will pay off as the global crisis enters its next phase.
Adapt to Change Now and Into the Future
The sad truth is that COVID-19 will change the business landscape and talent pool drastically for an indefinite period of time. You might be in the unfortunate position of temporarily furloughing workers, or changing several employees from full-time to part-time, or maybe you need to bring on temporary help or independent contracts due to a spike in demand. This is a unique time that makes payroll, HR and compliance reporting more challenging than you may have ever experienced.
Dynamics 365 Business Central and ADP can help you adapt to change by:
- Creating a fully traceable audit trail across your business making compliance much easier
- Staying up to date with the latest regulatory laws, rules and changes for you
- Giving you peace of mind with scalable, flexible solutions that adapt to your needs
- Helping you sustain operations and recover quickly
- Providing self-service tools to keep employees stay informed and engaged
- Ensuring you always have partners working in your best interests
