Our GFOS system world supports you in simplifying all processes relating to payroll accounting and creating clarity - from recording to payroll accounting. All employee attendance and absence data is available within the system and is updated daily. This means that up-to-date payroll data is available for your workforce at all times.

This database is used to determine and process time-related bonus, basic wage and absence wage types.  The payroll accounting software allows you to automatically evaluate all payroll-relevant wage types based on your employees' recorded time data.  In this way, accurate and reliable monthly payroll accounting is achieved by transferring the wage types to the payroll system used. This means that this information can be processed directly in the payment system.

Payroll accounting software automates further processing

The payroll software from GFOS is designed in such a way that it can be used to prepare a wide range of data for immediate further processing. In this context, summarized data can also be created - so you receive a single transfer record with information on the client, personnel number, payroll period and wage type as required.

In addition, wage type determination can also be aggregated by cost center. Wage types can be freely defined within the system, for example according to different employee groups (students, hourly wages, monthly wage/salary recipients, etc.). A range of additional information is also available for the data records:

  • Absence periods including certified connection to the electronic certificate of incapacity for work
  • Attendance days
  • Tax days
  • Social insurance days
  • Flextime / vacation accounts
  • Paid days to target days

The software is designed to output a very detailed breakdown of data if required. In this way, it is also easy to comply with statutory and collectively agreed regulations for determining bonuses. This makes payroll accounting with GFOS software a reliable solution. 

Payroll accounting software with interfaces to your payroll system

With over 30 interfaces to the most common payroll systems, our software can be integrated directly into your payroll accounting workflow. The module already supports permanent data processing - information is only exchanged between the systems in a single interface file. For simple, automated further processing of the information, it can be defined directly that the data record format used by the payroll system is to be used. Various accounts, such as outstanding vacation or flextime hours, are also transferred.

Further manual processing in the payroll system is no longer necessary. To ensure that the payroll accounting software functions as desired, simple test payrolls can be created with just a few clicks. This allows you to quickly check that the interface is working properly. 

Bonus pay calculator used the easy way

Companies strive for efficiency and top performance from their skilled employees, which is often remunerated through performance and bonus wages. The exact calculation of these special remunerations is sometimes very time-consuming. Our payroll accounting software optimizes these processes in connection with the fully automated performance evaluation of the GFOS Manufacturing Execution System. This makes it possible to precisely calculate piecework, bonuses and allowances - taking into account configurable calculation types and definable order and overhead activities. 

The evaluation of individual persons and activities can be set up flexibly, as can group performance.  Changes to the existing calculation model and the addition of new wage types can be easily implemented via master data. Employees can follow the performance evaluation live thanks to permanent calculations.   Realtime monitoring is possible at various levels by employees, line managers and the HR department and protects personal data securely via the integrated authorization concept.

Piecework and bonus calculation and consideration of bonuses

Piecework calculation within the payroll accounting software is based on recorded activities from your production and warehouse organization and takes into account diverse and expandable wage type models.  The bonus calculation integrates piecework results and includes other key figures, enables the weighting of influencing variables, and ensures flexible adjustments. The module records various bonuses, including SEG bonuses, depending on the person, activity and workplace.  Allowance levels can also be based on on-time delivery and scrap rates.  This gives you the accuracy and flexibility to optimize complex pay and bonus structures and minimize administrative costs.
