Accountancy software player Sage has launched what it claims is the first payroll system to sit in the cloud. The web-based Sage One Payroll system was developed by Sage’s Dublin R&D team.
The new cloud offering is targeted at firms with 15 or fewer employees and for management with no specialist payroll knowledge or IT skills.
The software, which is protected by 128-bit encryption, automates deductions and calculations for the Universal Social Charge, PAYE and PRSI and has the ability to export data for payroll year-end reports for submission to Ireland's Revenue Commissioners.
“We also spent a lot of time consulting with small businesses and their insights fed into every element of the development of Sage One Payroll, from the design to the language used, enabling us to create what we believe is one of the industry's most user-friendly pieces of software for processing the pay run," Sage's product marketing chief David O'Reilly said.
