Our payroll partner, RunPayroll, has invested significantly in refreshing the design of the payroll platform that many of our clients have come to love. This new design will be pushed out to all users in the near future.
I have actually been using the new design for more than a month to manage MST's payroll. Overall, I really like the changes. The new design is much more aesthetically pleasing. Navigation is not significantly different, making the transition easy. Additionally, certain processes are now faster and important information is more readily available than before. I hope that all of you find the change as pleasant as we have.
Below, I highlight some of the changes you can expect to see.
Overview of New Design
With this upcoming update you will see a fresh look and all sorts of great tools, but most importantly, you can still count on your payroll being easy. Now you can get a quick view of your payroll history, pay a commission bonus, print reports, run payroll and get back to running your business even faster.
The new design incorporates a host of new benefits, including:
- Easier navigation – Access common tasks right from the start.
- Smarter insights – View payroll data at a quick glance.
- Helpful tools – Follow new and easy step-by-step instructions to add a check, void a check, pay bonus and much more
From start to finish, I believe you’ll find that payroll is easier than ever.
Meet Your New Dashboard
The Account Center has been transformed into your new Dashboard. Approval deadlines, action items and data from your most recent payrolls are all front and center.
Navigation has been improved with the top menu bar, making items easily and quickly accessible. Select any of the menu items and a helpful “fly-out menu” will display all related links.
Faster Payroll Entry
The new design continues the grouping of employees by type (hourly vs. Salary), however, you will find that the entry of additional pay items (expense reimbursement, miscellaneous deductions), is now faster than before.
Improved Payroll Preview
A new interactive graph shows you exactly what actions are being taken for a payroll and what actions you need to take. For example, if you have a 401k or other retirement plan it’s even easier to see the amount going to the provider, whether MST facilitates these payments or you send out the payments yourself.
The approval screen is clear and concise.
Run Off-Cycle Activities the Easy Way
Handling your off-cycle payroll activities such as adding a commission check, a bonus check or voiding a check is now more straightforward with the help of our new Off-Cycle Wizard. This simply means you get easy, step-by-step instructions to help ensure it’s done right.
Move Ahead with New Messaging
Along with a new design and more robust tools you’ll also enjoy clean and clear messages across the payroll experience. This keeps everything consistent and helps you get back to business.
Get Reassured with New Validation Messages
You’ll see new and consistent validation messaging that lets you know about key information.
As always, if you have questions, whether now or upon the release of the update, please do not hesitate to call us.
