Ceridan launches Canada's first mobile payroll app
MARKHAM -- Ceridian Canada Ltd., a leading human capital management and payment solutions provider, today announced the launch of Canada's first mobile payroll app.
Powerpay Web is Ceridian's flexible payroll solution that that enables small businesses to process their payroll online. The PowerPay Web Mobile app gives Ceridian Powerpay Web clients the ability to review and then submit their payroll figures directly from their smartphone - from any location and at any time.
"Payroll can't wait and neither can other aspects of business," says Shelley Ng, Vice President, Product Management, Ceridian Canada Ltd. "Senior Managers and Payroll Managers, especially in small businesses, often have many competing priorities that can regularly take them off-site. This app lets them review and submit their payroll directly from their smartphone. Whether they are waiting for a plane, on their way to an off-site meeting or even at their cottage, they can easily ensure their payroll is processed correctly and on time. We've developed this app to make things as easy as possible for our customers."
The Powerpay Web Mobile App for BlackBerry is now available from App World for a one-time only download fee of $6.99. A similar app for iPhone users will be available from iTunes in the next few weeks. No training or further implementation is required.
Later this summer, an updated edition of this app will be released that will allow busy Powerpay Web customers to add and edit employee profiles and quickly enter time information. If a manager is at off-site meetings or travelling for business, the Powerpay Web Mobile app will ensure all employees - full time, part time or occasional are paid correctly and on time.
"This is a great payroll tool that's very easy to use," says Philip Olcen, General Manager of Mom's Pantry Products in Winnipeg, Manitoba. "It's especially useful for small businesses in which the owner or president has final approval of all payroll. He or she can review, approve and submit from any location - and that's helpful if your president is constantly on the go!"
