Payroll Case Essay
Kudler Fine Foods uses a biometric time system which requires the usage of time clocks to monitor the time employees engaged in work responsibilities. The method requires the use of a finger touch pad to identify the numerous time punches made by the employee. The employees information is entered upon hired into the companyÃ¢â¬â¢s payroll system. Based on the numerous time punches made, the organization evaluates the employees work hours and computes the employees salary. The computation for employee salary includes Ã¢â¬Å"regular time, overtime time, bonuses, holiday pay, vacation pay, etc.Ã¢â¬ and both federal and state deductions as well as other government deductions and individual benefit deductions such as 401(k) contributions to the employeeÃ¢â¬â¢s salary (Apollo Group Inc., 2013). Although, this is an effective method to monitor employee work hours and compete payroll, the companyÃ¢â¬â¢s current system is not directly linked amongst the three operating subsidiaries. The purchase of an industry-specific software can help integrate the flow of information from the three locations by establishing an effective method of recording all of the data and feeding the database. This could prove to be cost-effective considering the expense associated with the development of a customized software. However, some modifications may be required for an industry-specific software in order to suit the companyÃ¢â¬â¢s demands. The idea is to integrate the three subsidiaries and create a better way of obtaining information and storing data. The system may require a modification to how employee hours are recorded according to the softwareÃ¢â¬â¢s specifications. The process will should remain similar to KudlerÃ¢â¬â¢s Fine Foods existing procedure requiring the need to store personal information such as exemptions and other personal data for taxing purposes. The system will maintain employee records and any update made to those records. The employee personnel responsible for administrating payroll can view this information via the integrated system and make adjustments if necessary using proper clearance by a member of management. This system will add value by improving the effectiveness of flow of data and by ensuring that there is sufficient evidence to support payroll computations amongst the subsidiary stores.
