If you are like any other business owner I’ve met in the last 10 years, not only are you busy, but you are constantly juggling many, many different tasks, and sometimes it’s easy to miss dates that are important to others.
Wagepoint says that they “designed [their] payroll system to be easy to use and love.”
Well, we actually agree with that statement over here at Aeble Business Services Inc. Colleen’s smile when she does payroll for one of our larger clients because of the smooth and pain-free transition of pulling time from TSheets into Wagepoint compared to the beast of payroll software it was in before where both functions were in the same software, is reason enough to love it. But for me, it’s the little thoughtful things that make me smile.
Emails like this for birthdays or work anniversaries:
Now when you’ve been putting in crazy hours focusing on a key project that you’re working on, it’s nice to know that your payroll software has your back and will remind you to send a little love in the direction of the people working with you to achieve these goals. I don’t know about you, but I’m TERRIBLE with remembering dates! These little emails (that you can turn off if you wish) are a god send to me. Ask how I felt the first time I forgot an employee’s work anniversary before we started using Wagepoint for our payroll provider? I don’t think there was a hole large enough anywhere.
Don’t get me wrong, the other features are lovely too, and critical to running payroll well. Things like automatically calculating stat holiday pay, remitting my WSIB payments for me, emailing the employees automatically, and lots of other great key features that surprisingly not all of their competition offers, unfortunately.
We tend to get more complex clients, and have a great knack for finding the flaws in software. Around here we call that the Aeble click. Shockingly, we haven’t broken Wagepoint yet! It’s only been 6 months, so we aren’t fully through our testing of the software before we give it the official Aeble seal of approval, but it’s going to have to be something really terrible for us to not like the software at this point.
