Seven Reasons Why Enkel Chose to Use Payworks

At Enkel, we provide Financial Operations as a service to hundreds of organizations across Canada, and to deliver those services (bookkeeping, payroll, AP, AR and controllership), we’ve architected the optimal mix of people, process, and technology. One of our most popular services is Payroll administration, where we provide online payroll management to nonprofits and small business owners across Canada. Our team of Canadian payroll specialists help organizations manage payroll, saving them time, eliminating the headaches of ensuring compliance, and making every payday a piece of cake.

We recognized early on that to deliver a great experience to our payroll clients, a deep partnership with a proven payroll platform was critical. We researched extensively and considered all of the major players, and decided with overwhelming confidence that Payworks was the best partner for us.

Payworks is a leading expert in the field of workforce management solutions, and provides cloud-based Payroll, Human Resources, Employee Time and Absence Management to organizations across Canada. Canadian-owned and operated Payworks’ success is due in large part to its suite of cloud-based workforce management solutions, which are supported by a client-centric service philosophy and purpose of “doing right by people.” Payworks maintains a culture that promotes innovation and collaboration, encourages and emphasizes community involvement, and focuses on cultivating and nurturing long-lasting relationships with clients. Not only did they bring world-class technology to the table, but the two companies share similar values. It was a perfect fit. 

Seven reasons why Enkel chose Payworks as its Payroll technology Provider

1. Scalability:

At Enkel, our clients come in all shapes and sizes, and we needed a payroll solution that could accommodate small businesses, large businesses, and growing businesses. Payworks delivered. Their system comes with all the bells and whistles and has options for multiple locations and business numbers, plus user-based security access.

2. Integrated HR module:

While Enkel does not offer HR services, the ability to integrate payroll and HRIS systems is important to our clients. Payworks has a comprehensive HR platform that provides HR practitioners with all the tools and functions required to manage their teams.

3. Time & Attendance module:

The Payworks solutions comes with integrated time tracking functionality that significantly reduces manual inputs, bringing more control and structure to the way our clients track hours.

4. Absence Management:

If you’ve ever managed employee hours and time off, you know how challenging it can be to keep track of everything and everyone. Payworks lets you easily track employee time off - eliminating all manual activities. 

5. Customer Support:

Named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for eleven consecutive years, it’s no surprise that Payworks provides top-tier support. If our clients have a problem or an emergency, we have access to exceptional service from the team at Payworks. With a philosophy of “doing right by people”, Payworks is there when you need them.

6. Integrations:

To deliver our suite of financial operations services we also work with technology partners QuickBooks Online and Xero. Payworks has integrations with both tools. With both integrations, there's no need for re-keying data or the document download-uploads. Journal entry information automatically flows from Payworks to the accounting software. The time savings are huge. 

7. Team/Department Allocations:

Paworks lets you easily allocate team members to different departments, and we believe that allocating team members to appropriate general ledger accounts in the financials is critical. This is especially important for Nonprofits who need to allocate payroll costs to different programs (or classes) in addition to separate general ledger accounts so that they can easily report back to funders. The tool is nimble and allows you to get people into the right categories in the accounting software for accurate presentation in the financials. 

Payroll is a big deal. Ensuring your employees are paid accurately and on time is, or should be, a top priority. But there’s more to payroll than just bi-weekly or semi-monthly pay runs. Payroll management encompasses everything from Year-End preparation (T4 and T4As) to compliance with payroll legislation, new hires and terminations (ROEs), and work-safe/WSIB & Employer Health Tax filings. At Enkel, we provide end-to-end payroll solutions backed by world-class technology. For payroll, Payworks can’t be beat.

We thoroughly research and test the apps we include in our regular workflow for Client bookkeeping services. After deciding on criteria for evaluating the software and then researching the app itself, we tested the app, noting its strengths and weaknesses. We then work with the app for at least a few weeks before deciding whether to recommend it to our readers. We use the software as it was designed for its intended tasks. For a detailed walk-through of how we select and evaluate software, please see the details of our process.

Enkel receives no consideration or compensation from software publishers for featuring their software in our blog articles.
