What exactly does ePayslips mean. I guess it means different things to different people.
To some an epayslip is a PDF of a regular payslip delivered electronically. To others epayslips are part of an employee portal where users log in and can see all of their historic payslips as images.
To us an epayslip is the same portal which holds all of an employees pay data and can produce from that all kinds of reports over different periods
As a payroll services business customers butainly potential customers have been asking about e-payslips for a number of years now. However, in practice clients are not using epayslips yet.
Why? Well the main reason seems to be ready access to pc's. Unless all of your staff are accessing pc's at work or home, the utility of an epayslip diminishes.
No doubt it is coming though. Electronic banking is pervasive. The utility providers and mobile phone companies are pushing us towards online account management. We are as a nation becoming used to "doing things" online and the security worries of the early days of the internet are fading away.
Our ePayslip solutions is due out soon and it would be great to hear your thoughts and ideas.
