An epayroll process is sometimes called by a number of names: online payroll, paperless pay, and even green payroll. The underlying idea is that paper is eliminated from the payroll process as much as possible since (almost) everything is done digitally. The advantages of a paperless or epayroll processes are numerous.

Making the Distinction Between Epayroll and Paperless Pay

The rise of the cloud and vastly increasing amounts of remote storage, there has been a massive shift in the way business is done across the entire spectrum of business functions. This is especially true for HR processes, including payroll management.

Having secure access to employee data, along with unlimited remote storage solutions at any time, allows for almost every payroll function to be paperless.  And, again, the benefits of having a paperless, or green payroll, are numerous. Aside from the decrease in office clutter and the reduction of labor, a paperless payroll process will significantly impact your bottom line.

This happens through reduced paper, mailing, printing costs as well as the reallocation of labor in more productive tasks.  It is entirely possible for a large company to save thousands of dollars annually by implementing a paperless payroll process. The "paperless" refers to the final output of the process.

What we call epayroll is essentially an electronic payroll. This would include being paperless and environmentally friendly, or "green." It would also include the data entry - the part where you begin the process of the payroll by actually entering the hours or the wages that you’re paying employees. Being able to do this in the cloud through the web is what makes it an epayroll process.

Electronic payroll, or epayroll, simply means instead of taking pen to paper and faxing it over, or calling it in on a telephone, you’re actually submitting your data online through an electronic service.
