New: Reminders For Your Employees via Facebook Messenger

Do you have employees who forget to clock in and the start of their shift, or forget to clock out at the end?  Well, we can help, we have a new tool that reminds your employees of their schedule.

If PayrollHero has not received a clock in or out from your employee, they can be reminded 15 minutes prior to their schedule or after the completion of the schedule, automatically, via Facebook Messenger.

Why Facebook Messenger? 

For starters, you most likely already have it on your phone, so no need to download a new app to get PayrollHero reminders.  Plus, in many countries (including the Philippines), Facebook Messenger is free, no data required.

What do the reminders look like? 

Good question, here is an example of a reminder. It pops up prior to the shift to remind employees to clock in.

Singapore Payroll Management

Successful payroll management in Singapore requires proper systems and procedures to ensure accuracy and timeliness. Employees expect to be paid accurately and on time each and every pay period.

The main component to accurate payroll is accurate time and attendance. If the data going in for payroll computation is not accurate then the payroll calculations will not be accurate.

What constitutes a complete payroll management system
