Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between a unified system versus a single platform for payroll and time and attendance?

If applications are only “unified” or integrated instead of on a single platform, you may experience lags in your data calculations, an inconsistent user experience, and weakened analytics from splintered data. On-demand pay may be impossible.  

A single platform, on the other hand, provides an all-in-one HR experience that lets you track payroll, time, and attendance at once, while also providing a unified user experience to your team.  

What are indicators of a truly single system? 

A truly single system has one database, provides a consistent user experience across modules, and offers continuous, real-time net-pay calculations versus batch processing.  

What are potential risks of an integrated or unified system for payroll and time and attendance? 

Often, an integrated HCM system requires you to bridge gaps between modules by transferring data between them, which can easily complicate things.  For instance, you may need to manually transfer time data in a batch to the payroll module before processing payroll. This can be hugely time-consuming and creates room for errors for both you and your team.  

How do I determine if I’m using a single system or if it’s integrated? 

A: In a single system:  

  1. Each module should be demoed on the same domain or a similar URL.  

  1. The user interface should provide a consistent, similar experience.  

  1. You should be able to calculate net pay in real-time for a complete picture of today’s labor expenses. If you’re only able to calculate gross pay or future labor expenses, you’re using an integrated system.
