Description:

AGH Employer Solutions’ payroll specialists provide small to very large organizations with a dedicated team focused solely on delivering cost-effective and customer-oriented payroll solutions. The employer provides pay rates and employee hours to be paid during each period (either from an AGH Employer Solutions-provided and supported timekeeping system or an existing one), and AGH Employer Solutions handles the rest. From calculating total pay due (including sick leave, vacation or overtime), to deducting retirement plan contributions, health insurance premiums or other benefit deductions, to adding reimbursement for expense accounts or flexible-spending plan payments, AGH Employer Solutions’ payroll system software handles complex payrolls quickly and accurately, keeping information archived for future reference.

Employers have tremendous flexibility in timekeeping systems, pay periods, type of payments (electronic or paper), type of deductions and reimbursements, and increases or decreases in payroll size.

While AGH Employer Solutions processes the payroll, employers have access to all payroll data online at any time or on paper if desired. More than 600 standard reports can be generated from the system, and users also have the ability to quickly create (or request AGH Employer Solutions to create) customized reports as needed. Reports are exportable in multiple formats, including Excel, PDF, ASCII text and HTML, to support a variety of requirements.
