Payroll System that Works for Entrepreneurs

Payroll system for business owners

Having an effective payroll system is an essential part of running a business. Although, it may seem daunting at times, with a system like Glade, paying your employees is smooth when you leverage our API, (Application Programming Interface), to switch to an automated system if your business is still using the manual employee onboarding and still keeping paper files to pay salary.

Benefits of using a payroll system as an entrepreneur

A payroll system will ensure your employees are paid correctly, on time, and every time. This is important because it helps businesses avoid the risks of late payments and poor financial management.

A good payroll system like Glade’s can also help you manage employee benefits such as healthcare insurance, sick leave, vacation payouts, and more.

However, with the Glade payroll, you can easily schedule and pay your staff salaries all at once. It’s a great way to keep track of all employees and their salaries, as well as how much they get paid each month or week.

Why you should use the Glade Payroll:

  • You have more than 1 employee (or want to hire new ones)
  • You have one employee who would like to receive their salary on a certain date every month/week/fortnightly basis.
  • You are a busy entrepreneur
  • You want to keep being vouched for as a considerate and accurate employer
  • You can schedule and pay staff salaries automatically.

 Also, the Glade payroll helps streamline the process of being an entrepreneur with more than one staff, reducing the time it takes to run your payroll from hours to minutes. This means that you can spend more of your valuable time working on other tasks, such as growing your business or developing new products and services.

Now, it is possible that you have the Glade app and you haven’t explored other features designed for growing businesses. Hence, you might not have used the payroll feature. Here is a quick tutorial on how to schedule and automate salaries on Glade.
