Christoph Renk

The reason we worked with Relevant Software is that they were very proactive about getting information from us. Other companies move slowly, but these guys move fast which is what we liked about them. Before we even kicked off the project, we would go into a lot of detail. That was quite impressive for us.

What is payroll software?

Payroll software is either on-premise or a cloud-based software solution that allows to manage and automate salary payments to the company's employees. Robust, feature-rich, and adequately configured payroll tools help businesses of all sizes maintain their tax compliance and reduce costs. Payroll software also allows freeing up your human resources team from routine tasks so that they can focus on more strategic and meaningful work.

What are the advantages of payroll software?

The benefits of payroll software are numerous. Below, you'll see the main reasons to opt for such a tool.

  • Freeing up your employees time through automation of work processes
  • Secure administration of sensitive salary data in a central repository
  • Flexibility in terms of functions
  • Compliance with legal requirements
  • If you choose a cloud-based payroll system, you can access payroll-related information anywhere using a desktop computer or mobile device.

Your firm will avoid cases where employees get the wrong amount, are not paid for overtime or other work, or are not paid in their preferred way. Payroll systems ensure that the right employees only have access to the right information for their role. You can translate real-time information into charts and graphs and use this data to make better business decisions.

What are the benefits of cloud payroll software?

Cloud-based payroll systems usually offer you all the necessary essential functions. But the cloud-based systems also allow you to customize workflows as your business needs transform. It is not that easy to adjust an on-premise tool if the roles, compensation structures, or other circumstances change. On the other hand, you can quickly scale cloud payroll solutions (while keeping them simple) regardless of how many task owners, deadlines, dependencies, etc., are involved.

Should I go for an off-the-shelf solution or opt for custom payroll software development?

Every company has different needs. While the basic or compact versions of payroll software are often sufficient for smaller firms, larger organizations are often dependent on additional functions that can only be found in complex solutions with well-thought design. Of-the-shelf payroll software typically lacks the flexibility and functionality found in custom payroll systems. So if you want to have a top-notch payroll app that fully meets your industry and business needs, it makes sense for you to find an experienced payroll software development company.

For over 8 years, Relevant has been building reliable and secure software tools that provide an excellent user experience and are ready to design and implement your payroll tool. If you are ready to hire a payroll software developer or have any questions, contact us. But if you require more information to decide, read our blog on custom automated payroll system development.

What are the custom payroll software development costs?

It varies. Different factors influence the final cost of developing payroll system software. Here are the most important ones:

  1. The complexity of payroll solution. The complexity of the custom payroll app is one of the critical predictors of development price. The back-end infrastructure, the number of features, the design, and even the development approach your fintech programmers will use will define how much the payroll software development costs.
  2. Hourly rate. It sounds obvious that one of the main factors influencing the costs is the payroll software developers' rate. The difference in price for the same project may be significant, and the low price doesn't necessarily mean a bad job. Still, be careful when accepting the lowest bid. It is better to do thorough research and focus on the options that provide the best quality-price ratio. Also, make sure that the development company has at least some experience in building fintech products.
  3. Changes to the scope. The most important task is to build a convenient software solution people will actually use. Sometimes, it is required to make some changes to the product, leading to the increased time spent. This, in turn, influences the final cost of the development project.
