Companies today need the promise of flexibility and control when it comes to dealing with payroll services for their hundreds, if not thousands, of clients. Payroll Tax Management, Inc.understands that the costs of adding software licenses and updates to every employee’s computer can cost a company a lot of time and money, which is why companies are now offering scalable SaaS solutions to clients and cloud-based software, like our FlexTax® service, has become the preferable alternative. All of your payroll needs can be found through a web-based service, which hosts all the programs you would need to use without crowding your computer with data. Not only is the cloud system software efficient, but it is also very secure. This criterion is important when dealing with sensitive data such as your employees’ payroll and related documents online, which is why PTM’s services include a $50 million dollar crime bond to protect tax funds and client transactions, plus annual SSAE 16 and financial audits.
Providing cloud-based software has been a positive experience to us and our clients. As more companies start to make the switch to cloud software, here are a few tips to help you choose the right software program for your company and to make the transition as smooth as possible.
- Evaluate current costs versus planned costs when switching to cloud software. Make sure you understand the financial responsibility for the switch so that you are not surprised by any hidden fees throughout the transition process.
- If you have vendor partnerships, understand what technology systems they use so that you don’t buy outdated or incompatible software.
- Continuously evaluate your software process. Cloud software is constantly changing and it’s best to review and see if new or more efficient procedures have become available for your program.
Be upfront about the security measures for your software to ease the minds of clients. Site security is one of the biggest concerns for companies and executives when it comes to cloud software because sensitive data between is moved from the cloud to different networks, so it’s important to focus on and assure security.
