Everything You Need, All in One Place

“With our previous provider, not much worked correctly. Payroll processing was time-consuming, we constantly experienced system errors and they did little to solve our problems. When we met with Paycor, we felt like they wanted to be our partner.”


Gerber Poultry saved 10 hours processing payroll each week.


Paycor offers customized reports to fit Gerber Poultry’s unique needs.

What does payroll software do?

Payroll software collects employee hours worked data (for hourly workers) and salary data for full-time employees and consolidates it into an easy-to-read grid for payroll administrators to run on a regular basis. Through the software, administrators can choose the pay interval (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, etc.), correct any mistakes and errors, and then do a pay run once all timecards have been approved.  The system then pays employees according to their chosen payment receipt method.

Does payroll software help with complexities, like tax laws, paid time-off, workers compensation, and wage garnishments?

Yes. Payroll software makes calculations based on the W4 information provided during your onboarding process. It also allows for unique local and state tax deductions.  Paid time-off, workers compensation, and wage garnishments capabilities can all be included as part of your payroll software package.

How does Paycor payroll software collect data?

Regular pay details for salaried employees can be manually entered in our system for reoccurring pay.  For hourly wages, many customers purchase Paycor Payroll with our workforce management solution, Paycor Time, which allows you to collect employee hours through a physical time clock, iPad application, or mobile app. Our software integrates with other timekeeping systems as well, including point-of-sale (POS) systems.

How big does my company need to be to use Paycor payroll software? 

We service organizations from 1 to 1,000+ employees. The sophistication and power of our payroll platform can be adjusted to the needs of your business as it grows. Our product tour is a good place to start to get an idea of what payroll and HR systems are recommended for your size business.
