Benefits and payroll administration are full of typically manual processes - repetitive tasks often carried over from older, legacy systems. Rather than have HR departments buried in tasks like entering data into multiple spreadsheets, payroll audits, reconciliation, 401K setup, and endless click/copy/paste actions, streamline your business processes with workflow automation.

Workflow automation is uniquely suited to designing, creating, and deploying automated processes throughout departments and organizations. It is integrated with HR software and helps benefits administration and payroll focus on high-value tasks, such as increasing employee experience to build star talent and reduce churn. Use cloud-native RPA and automation software to upgrade your payroll processing, new hire onboarding, error-checking, Flex Spending Account (FSA) setup, etc.

What are the benefits of payroll automation?

A well-managed human resources department contributes to a company's profitability and benefits from being integrated with an automated system. Such a system efficiently performs the full range of employee compensation and benefits functions, including simple deductions, to more complex procedures such as overtime, commissions, and bonuses. HR managers can then free up their time for strategic planning and workforce management activities.

Minimize Clerical Errors

Minimize Clerical Errors

RPA and workflow automation helps reduce human errors to almost non-existent in costly areas such as payroll processing, PTO benefits, and reimbursements. Software bots can be quickly programmed to accurately create, monitor, and track timesheets based on simple templates and send notifications to stakeholders when exceptions occur.

Provide Employees with Self-Service Options

Provide Employees with Self-Service Options

Employee self-service HR portals reduce onboarding and benefits management's frustrations and wait times while building positive experiences. Employees can choose benefit plans, update employee information, view pay stubs, clock in and out, request leave, and more via AI chatbots, RPA, and precision engagement messaging.

Reduce Manual Processes

Reduce Manual Processes

Where workflow automation and RPA excel are removing time-consuming, manual workflows from business processes, for example, using a Resume Screening Bot to review resumes and either shortlist or reject based on logic rules. You can also use a pre-built bot to help with Workday functions, including data retrieval and getting EIB reports.

Enhance Payroll Records Accessibility

Enhance Payroll Records Accessibility

Keeping accurate, updated payroll records can be difficult, even with payroll software. Integrating automation into your payroll management helps ensure accurate records can be found easily. Bots compile information throughout the organization for a single source of truth, available to specified employees, executives, and auditors.

Keep Sensitive Payroll and Benefits Data Secure

Keep Sensitive Payroll and Benefits Data Secure

RPA software bots developed on the Automation 360 platform have bank-grade security features, such as layered security, role-based data retrieval, and top-tier data encryption. As a result, only key stakeholders see employee data, with clear audit trails.

Easily Integrate Third-party Apps

Easily Integrate Third-party Apps

Cloud-native RPA solutions easily integrate with third-party apps and legacy systems. Automation Anywhere Robotic Interface connects via APIs and removes the need to sign on to each platform. Single Sign-On (SSO) functionality allows workers to log into several accounts from a single dashboard, shaving minutes off of every day for each worker.

Who benefits from automation in benefits & payroll administration?

For RPA to have maximum impact, it should be embedded within an enterprise automation initiative. Then, as RPA programs like procurement, training, and use case approval mature, the entire organization benefits.

Accounting

Accounting

Applying workflow automation to your accounting department reduces workflow redundancies and unnecessary steps. Documenting communications is one example. Document Automation, a top-tier IDP solution, helps extract and digitize information from unstructured data, making it searchable and easy to compile.

Legal

Legal

Maintain accurate payroll records, distribute W-2 or 10-99 forms, meet legal regulations, and mitigate ethical and defensible compliance risks. Using pre-built bots like Contract & Agreement Document Extraction and Validation, quickly identify anomalies with signed contracts.

IT

IT

Reduce incoming ticket backlog from human resources. For example, an influx of hires can quickly turn into a ticket backlog as IT rushes to set up employee accounts, passwords, and devices. Bots send tickets to critical stakeholders and notify them when tickets are about to expire.

Customer Support

Customer Support

For HR, employees are the customers, and customer experience is as important internally as it is externally. Integration with training software can increase employee skill sets, and chatbots can answer low-value questions so HR can focus on higher-value queries and customer-facing tasks.
