The ShiftPlanning team looks to provide value to our client across the workforce management spectrum. While a lot of our recent development has focused on the scheduler, clients have been making requests specific to our payroll-related functionality. This has led us to our most recent developments of ‘rate cards’ and multi-wage settings. Over the next few weeks, we’ll continue expanding this payroll roll-out with a particular focus on reporting.
Previously, wages were assigned to each employee in the ‘staff’ tab of the software under “edit details”. Because wages were a staff attribute, different wages for overtime or different positions could not be entered into the systems.
Rates cards and the staff level ‘payroll’ setting have changed this. Rate cards allow for managers to assign different levels of pay based on day and time. For example, if weekend hours are time and a half, the manager simply has to change the rate card to “150%” for these hours (the default is 100%). Additionally, in the system, managers can create multiple paycards.
There is a new ‘payroll’ section in the ‘staff’ tab. The payroll options allow for managers to change the wage and assign paycards for each position offering great flexibility.
In the ‘reports’ tab, the ‘payroll’ reports now feature the multi-wage/rate card data. The new columns of regular, special & overtime have been added to the reports for more accurate exports and bookkeeping.
We will be working in the coming weeks to introduce this functionality across the system, beginning with reports. Does the Rate Card fit your costing needs?
