Merge Module allows companies that have multiple locations
without a wide-area network (WAN) to effectively collect data and
manage their employees times from each location, then submit the
finalized times to the corporate headquarters for payroll processing.
When the corporate headquarters uses the
Merge Module, any employee information changed at each
location can be imported to reflect the current data. Headquarters can
decide whether the pay policy settings made at each location should be
used, or ignored to apply a standard rule to all calculations
including rounding, lunch deductions, and daily/weekly overtime.
No Wide-Area Network (WAN) is required; leased lines are
expensive, costing up to $1500/month per line.
- No dedicated Internet connection is required at any location,
- Branches manage their own employees’ information.
- Pay policies at headquarters’ database can be
preserved so any changes made at each location would not overwrite
the global settings.
- Data can be transferred in a variety of methods, including
floppy disk, email, and FTP.
