We’re aiming to achieve 100% automation – that’s the goal.

Payroll is a complex industry. It requires a high degree of expertise and there are a number of manual processes involved. Our aim in the future is to try and remove those manual processes step-by-step. One approach that we are using to achieve this is something we call a rule-based system and that will allow a payroll expert to set up these rules to determine how a system functions.

It’s more powerful than a configuration that would traditionally have various limitations. A rule-based system is like a domain specific language that would be used by a payroll expert. This will be a powerful tool to keep the system robust and remove manual processes while preserving the flexibility that will be required in order to protect businesses from future industry changes.
