Client Eliminates Data Entry and Overpayments by Automating Payroll in Dynamics GP

In our latest client case study we discuss a non profit healthcare company that was manually entering 600 timesheets. Payroll took at least 18 hours a week. Now it is down to only eight hours per week. Because the Dynamics GP Starter Pack includes payroll at no additional cost, CAL was able to configure it to automatically extract raw data from the revenue system and then perform the necessary calculations. Payroll reports are also now easier than ever, and the company saved $20,000 in just the first seven months after CAL found a calculation mistake in the old system. Read the full case study here and contact us if you want to save time by automating payroll.
