IRIS Software Group Expands Payroll Capabilities With Employee Self-Service in North America
New AccountantsWorld by IRIS payroll module provides Employee Self Service capabilities to accelerate onboarding, drive process efficiencies and ensure compliance
October 4, 2022 — IRIS Software Group (IRIS), a leading global software provider of accountancy solutions, has today announced the launch of an Employee Self Service (ESS) module for Payroll Relief, a leading software for live payroll processing from AccountantsWorld By IRIS. The new solution enables accountants to offer clients a streamlined process to onboard their employees onto the payroll system, and the ability for those employees to manage data updates through a single, centralized portal.
The solution was developed in response to the growing demand for payroll systems that drive efficiency by reducing manual data entry with heightened accuracy. According to EY, 32% of payroll organizations considered inaccurate employee data in payroll systems to be their topmost compliance challenge in 2021. The new AccountantsWorld by IRIS ESS module mitigates that challenge by giving employees full control over their personal payroll data while enabling accountants to collaborate more closely with their clients to foster a mutually beneficial relationship that can reduce time and resource requirements and increase revenues.
Accountants can now improve client retention by providing additional value-add services and becoming an integrated service provider with their clients to increase revenue.
For businesses, the new module streamlines human resources processes with heightened data accuracy. In turn, HR teams can onboard employees more quickly while maintaining compliance through centralized employee training management.
For employees, the new ESS module provides a secure platform to reduce onboarding times to as little as fifteen minutes. Employees can now seamlessly access, enter and update their individual payroll profiles, modify personal information 24/7, and view and join training sessions required by their employer, all in one secure platform designed to safeguard personal data.
The new module is available to all new and existing Payroll Relief users as an add-on to their existing services.
Tyler Winn, Founder, and President of Cirrus Payroll says, “The new ESS module drives efficiency and productivity through its standardized approach to data entry with heightened security. The benefits of ESS for our customers and their employees are easily marketable by reducing manual data entry, thus fostering continued growth for the firm through established relationships.”
“Our clients already see the benefits of ESS within their businesses. The module allows remote workers and their employers to upload and share sensitive documents such as identification or performance reviews through a secure platform instead of email. Furthermore, automating the onboarding process reduces the workload for employers.”
Jim Dunham, President, and General Manager, IRIS Software Group says, “Payroll is a key offering for accountants who want to expand their value-added services to clients and foster stronger relationships to drive continued firm growth. This latest offering reflects our continued commitment to innovation and investment to best serve our customers’ employee management needs.”
Div Bhansali, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, AccountantsWorld By IRIS adds, “AccountantsWorld has been committed for 20 years to making payroll processing more automated and simpler for our customers. The new ESS capabilities significantly reduce onboarding times and enable accountants to accelerate payroll processing times, ensure compliance and introduce additional services to ultimately increase revenue. IRIS has always been committed to streamlining labor-intensive processes, and we’re proud that this new module will deliver measurable value to accountants, employees, and firms to adopt continued payroll process efficiency.”
