APS Enhances Payroll and HR Offerings in Spring Release

Shreveport, LA – April 1, 2016 – APS, a leader in cloud-based workforce management solutions and payroll tax compliance services, announces the release of the latest enhancements to its core HR and payroll solutions, as well as additions to reporting and security options.

This release to the APS technology platform advances the company’s mission to provide customers with a unified cloud experience encompassing core HR, payroll, time & attendance, and ACA compliance management tools.

Payroll Review

Payroll Review provides greater visibility into net payroll totals before processing. This enhancement allows for greater control over how gross to net is calculated and the ability to correct any errors prior to payroll processing. APS completely reconfigured its back-end system for a timely and flexible experience when using Payroll Review. For example, a payroll review for a 3,000 employee company can be generated in 30 seconds.

Payroll Review provides the power to correct more errors prior to payroll submission with the ability to view:

  • Gross and net totals for the entire payroll
  • Employee deduction amounts
  • Gross and net totals for individual checks
  • Potential payroll errors such as suspended accruals and unpaid deductions

When reviewing a payroll, individual checks may be expanded to see the details for that employee. There is also the flexibility to search, filter, and sort by:

  • Employee name or number
  • Hours, gross amount, taxes, deductions, match amounts, and net amounts
  • Checks with potential errors

Enhanced Employee Record Views

Employee records views offer more flexibility than ever before with more employee information in the employee record:

  • Users see current benefit enrollments for a more consolidated view of an employee’s benefits.

  • Hours that could have been accrued if there is a maximum number of allowed banked hours each month

The new eSignature report provides statuses for company documents requiring eSignature, including:
