How To Manage Payroll from your Mobile [Best App]

If you’re running a small or medium sized business, one of the most important tasks is to manage your employees’ every payday easily with all the access on the go. For any payroll service provider, it is crucial that it offers mobile payroll allowing you access it and make changes remotely. There are many applications and software available to fill in this gap, but the best one I’ve come across is Intuit Payroll Apps.

Intuit is among the largest payroll processing service providers in the United States and handles paychecks for over 1 million employees. The best thing about Intuit is that it also offers mobile payroll services, which means you can manage your business wherever you go, whether you are on mobile or the web. Intuit Online Payroll Mobile application is available for both Apple iPhone OS and Android OS. The mobile app automatically syncs with your Intuit Payroll account and allows you to preview and create paychecks, enter/edit work hours for employees, pay employees or contractors with direct deposit or cheque, view all the reports and information, E-pay taxes and E-file forms in all states, etc.

Mobile Payroll

The application allows employers to get a detailed view of all the information associated with their Intuit payroll account. All the transactions, reports and information is protected with a bank level encryption security to safeguard your data. The app also provides a free telephone support.

The Intuit Online Payroll application supports Intuit Online Payroll, Intuit Full Service Payroll, QuickBooks Online Payroll, QuickBooks for Mac Payroll, & Intuit Online Payroll for Accounting Professionals.
The application is free to download on both iOS and Android.

Personally, I found this application very useful as you can manage your employees’ payroll from anywhere in the world. The only thing you need is a internet connection to access this application. Now better understand & keep a track of all the forms & filings necessary for your employees. Do give this application a try.
