EmpowerPY takes the work out of recording, calculating and distributing your employees payroll information. Whether your payroll processing is complex, requiring multiple pay frequencies for different business units, or a simple weekly payroll, EmpowerPY’s table driven set-up makes it easy.

At the core of EmpowerPY’s capabilities lies an easy to use interface where you establish the rules for calculating pay, deduction, benefits, retirements, entitlements and taxes. Complex calculations using prorated amounts, percentages, annual salary basis and/or rates per 1000 are all possible with the EmpowerPY solution.

EmpowerPY’s TimeCard module makes collecting employee time an efficient, accurate process. Features such as Shift Calendars, Department Schedules, electronic clock interface, pre- defined standard hours, work order validation and automatic allocations save time and improve accuracy.

Whether your employees choose direct deposit or printed checks EmpowerPY has a variety of ways to make life easy in the payroll department. Printed checks use convenient laser forms and with EmpowerPY’s Print Restart capabilities your check numbers are always in sync with your laser forms. If your employees choose direct deposit, EmpowerPY provides for multiple direct deposits per check as well as the ability to override a direct deposit in order to receive a printed check for special bonus or incentive payrolls.
