Regardless of the size of an organization, effective payroll management is critical to ensuring successful operations. However, the majority of payroll processes, such as computing payroll taxes and wage policies, and remitting to the IRS, the overall payroll process is indisputably complicated. Additionally, if one was to take into consideration the several compliance regulations and wage and labor-management requirements, managing the overall process through out-of-date spreadsheets and one-note time clock services becomes a daunting task for payroll administrators. The one-size-fits-all payroll approach no longer suffices, and companies are on a lookout to automate their complex hourly workforce operations through effective payroll management software. Trackforce Valiant is one of the largest security workforce management solution providers, combining front-line visibility with back-office control, for a true end-to-end solution that is perfectly poised to address these challenges. The company offers a comprehensive online platform that integrates employees with human resources, time and labor, and payroll management software in one single platform. “Our solutions are purpose-built to provide clients with the tools to manage and track their workforce, connect time and labor to billing and payroll, and eliminate manual processes while reducing risk,” asserts Timothy Lozier, VP of Marketing at Trackforce Valiant. “From a payroll perspective, our differentiator is the ability to provide a combination of building intelligence into client’s payroll automation system and intelligence for streamlining compliance and increasing productivity in payroll processing while minimizing overall risk.”
We simplify the payroll management process while incorporating effective scheduling and compliance solutions into payroll processes
In its portfolio of products, the company offers specialized hourly payroll and time and labor management software that is designed for complex time collection, reporting, and effective HR management. “Our payroll system is integrated with our own scheduling and time collection system. We simplify the payroll management process while incorporating effective scheduling and compliance solutions into payroll processes,” explains Lozier. With its bundled solutions, the company simplifies maintaining paycheck records, paystubs, hours worked, and additional payroll files. From an employee perspective, the company offers an Employee Self Service (ESS) portal, which stores and reveals vital information to employees, allowing them to communicate, update personal profiles, and interact with managers. It also lets employees login directly to a company’s portal to view and print individual pay history, access their W-2 tax forms, and view their personal records. As a cloud-based solution, ESS streamlines the flow of critical data, ultimately resulting in greater efficiency, and smarter HR operations.
Trackforce Valiant caters to several industries with a specialization in the hospitality and security guard industry. The company’s restaurant industry technologies include gratuity management solutions and meal credit allowances, whereas its systems for the security industry incorporate licensing and local guard requirements for ensuring complaint scheduling.
The company has been garnering huge traction in the market due to its customer-centric approach and quality of its solutions.
To further exemplify Trackforce Valiant’s proficiency, Lozier highlights a story involving Securiguard—a company renowned for offering government and commercial agencies with armed and unarmed security services, security administration, training, as well as risk and vulnerability assessments. With 300 employees at Securiguard and 700-plus at its joint venture VendTech Enterprise, Securiguard needed a central system in order to manage scheduling, payroll, and other HR and compliance tasks for its geographically-dispersed hourly workforce. Before implementing Trackforce Valiant’s solution, the company was using spreadsheets to track schedules and time collection, which was a time consuming, manual process that supported its payroll processing. “Since we started using Valiant, verifying payroll, clock-in, and clock out times, calculating taxes, and submitting compliance reports has been significantly cut down,” asserts Jesus Canales, Finance Director at Securiguard.
With the implementation of Valiant for scheduling and payroll, Securiguard’s finance department was able to successfully cut its payroll processing time by over 50 percent, while also achieving workflow efficiencies for time collection. Moreover, Securiguard improved compliance reporting, enabling it to keep pace with the weekly requirements that the government imposes as part of their service level agreement.
Having geared themselves up for the future, Trackforce Valiant plans to continue innovating and making its product more efficient in accordance with the evolving technology and market needs. For 2020, the company’s goal is to continue to build upon their scheduling, payroll billing solution Smartforce, which is going to be streamlined with custom reports. “As the hourly employees operate more on mobile devices, we’re integrating more into the mobile guard touring apps to bring the mobile aspect into the hourly workforce and increase our mobile footprint,” concludes Lozier.
