Top Impacting Factors
Secured Cloud Backup of Employee Data
Cloud storage is cost-efficient in storing organizational data. Further, the payroll software vendors provide various encryption tools, including biometric authentication, password protection, and session time-outs, to provide security to the user, database, and the server. Moreover, the federal, state, and local government agencies move their data to the cloud because it provides enhanced information management along with high-speed networks and centralized data storage that enables increased productivity and better data sharing & collaboration.
Ease of System Enhancements & Updates
In case of on-premise solutions, the organization needs to re-deploy the older software version when the vendor releases an updated version of it. Further, after the re-deployment, the organization installs the newer version to avail its new functionalities, customization of which is time consuming. On the other hand, in cloud-based solutions, the vendors initiate the software updates, and initial customization is carried forward through the newer version of the software.
Advantages Over On-premise Solutions
The on-premise payroll solutions often require initial investments for hardware, servers, and power backup. Furthermore, it also necessitates experienced IT personnel for hardware maintenance and handling system functions. However, the cloud payroll infrastructure is maintained and hosted by the server, and the cost of implementation of cloud-based solutions is lower compared to on-premise solutions.
The cloud-based payroll solution operates on a pay-as-you-go subscription model, which makes the planning of payroll processes and HR policies much easier in comparison with on-premise implementation. Cloud-based implementation also enables the import and storage of huge amount of payroll data, tax, and employee details. Hence, cloud-based deployment is cost-efficient and provides a more predictable & flexible budgeting for large enterprises and SMEs.
