What is HR software?

HR payroll software, or human resources software, are tools that help improve processes related to employee management and performance, legal compliance, and internal organisation. Important for businesses of all sizes, HR apps help you stay on top of workplace initiatives and regulations, while helping employees get a great experience.

What are the benefits of HR software and payroll apps?

  • More efficient management teams of any size: A single source of information helps business owners or HR professionals manage workplaces of any size, and sole traders manage their accounting and payroll. Avoid expensive agency fees and cut down on costs with internal tools made for small business owners.

  • Improved employee experience: Ensure employees have access to their benefits, onboarding information, payroll and leave to give both you and them access to the information needed at any point in time.

  • Simplified legal compliance: Make regulatory compliance easier with HR management software that gives insights on specific actions for your local region. Receive guidance around award interpretation and compliance decision-making and never miss a deadline with automatic reminders.

  • Better hiring cycles: Reduce the time it takes to source, interview, hire, and onboard new talent. Track the prospect lifecycle and improve communication with candidates from interview through to onboarding and beyond.

What are the typical features I can use with HR software?

  • Payroll and compensation: Run payroll each pay period without the headache. Get access to salary history, tax information, and bonus structures to make accurately paying staff a breeze. 

  • Benefits and expense administration: Help your team members pick benefits plans and track expense requests in one place. See where your employees are spending the most, what matters the most and track wellbeing trends.

  • Talent and rostering management: Find new talent and manage your current employees together. Set up new interviews, roster staff and allow shift change requests at the tap of a button. 

  • Contractor invoicing: Hire one-off or fixed term contractors and easily receive invoices and sync them to your accounting platform. 

How HR and payroll apps work with Xero

Whether you’re running a small business or managing employees across a dozen locations,  keeping on top of your people and their payroll can be a set and forget task with the right apps. 

Connecting your people management to your finances makes  tracking hours, rates, expenses and payroll seamless. Just some of the features you can expect from connecting your HR or payroll app to Xero are:

  • Syncing for schedules, overtime, breaks and leave balances for current and future pay runs

  • Hourly or pro-rate time billing for casual, fixed-term or contracted staff

  • Updated pay rate management per area of work specific to your region
