Featured Case study


The Colony ER Hospital

Before switching to Netchex in April 2019, The Colony ER Hospital was using ADP – and was not thrilled with their experience. As the facility administrator at their small business, Alexis found it impossible to manage and process payroll correctly with ADP in the event she had to trust another employee to do so. She did not find ADP’s flow of payroll software to be user-friendly, often causing errors.

What is payroll software?

Payroll technology manages all tasks associated with payroll from beginning to end. This ranges from calculating wages to filing payroll taxes. Business payroll software allows you to organize and simplify these complex processes to ensure an accurate and timely payroll.

The alternatives—manually running payroll in-house or relying on a jumble of disconnected software systems—are less than ideal ways to run payroll. Common objections with these methods typically include:

  • Time-consuming, mundane processes
  • Labor intensity for those running payroll
  • Susceptibility for making mistakes

    Is payroll software easy to use?

    New technology adoption among employees is often a major factor in the success of new HR software. Company-wide buy-in and implementation are key to any payroll technology system. Everyone has to use it—and use it effectively—for it to really work.

    User experience

    Payroll software programs should be designed with everyday employees in mind, making it easy for everyone to find exactly what they need, when they need it. A rollout plan must consist of:

    • Training
    • Documentation
    • Personalized assistance.

    Customer service

    Helpful and proactive service makes a big difference for users of all levels. With expertise and continuous training, customer service reps are instrumental in helping clients learn the system and solve issues whenever they arise.
