What is an applicant tracking system?
An applicant tracking system (ATS) streamlines the hiring process for a small business. Fingercheck’s Hiring platform helps business owners with everything from advertising jobs and interviewing to hiring and onboarding candidates. And it’s easy to use.
Meriem Benmansour of AJH Management says, “It’s pretty ‘dummy proof,’ so straightforward to manage and handle.”
Our Hiring platform allows businesses to:
- Create job postings and post directly to job boards
- Customize the required fields
- Create the application forms
- Assign hiring leads
- Enable email notifications
- Rate applicants in-app
- Complete background checks
- Hire employees completely online
- Easily transition candidates to onboarding
“It is easy to organize all my employees, make changes and update any new employees,” Benmansour says.
Fingercheck’s Hiring platform is included in our 360 and 360 Plus plans.
Once you’ve hired your employees, you need to think about the type of payroll system you need.
A Bloomberg Tax survey found that over two-thirds of business owners say payroll is frustrating, complicated and confusing. This means that instead of tackling payroll manually, they look for a vendor to provide relief.
Why payroll automation is essential for your business
Processing payroll takes time. And as your business grows from a handful of employees to several handfuls, payroll becomes a more complex and time-consuming process. Manual payroll also can be expensive because many business owners outsource it to accountants or bookkeepers.
And that’s why automated solutions are ideal. Automated payroll software saves time and money by putting the entire process on autopilot — from calculating taxes and deductions to preparing W-2 forms for employees at year-end.
Automated systems reduce errors by providing step-by-step guidance through each task, ensuring accuracy from start to finish. Automation also helps ensure compliance with federal, state and local laws, which gives business owners peace of mind.
Our Payroll platform offers unlimited processing. That’s right, unlimited. You pay one monthly fee no matter how many times you run payroll. Fingercheck’s Payroll platform also offers:
- Full-service payroll with W-2 and 1099 forms
- Run payroll in seconds from your phone or set up autopay
- Detailed live preview and reports
- Tax and compliance with quarterly and year-end filings
- Identify valuable payroll trends with Payroll Analytics
- Payroll debit cards, direct deposit or cut your checks
- Offer earned wage access with Pay On-Demand
What’s Pay On-Demand?
Have you ever had a surprise setback — a veterinary bill or car repair? Pay On-Demand is a feature that puts payday in your employees’ control. With it, they can access their earned wages as soon as today.
In a recent Forbes survey, 74% of employees said access to their earned wages has helped reduce their financial stress. When employees are worried about money, it can spill over into their work. Pay On-Demand helps alleviate some of that stress and offers an alternative to predatory payday-lending programs.
Look at it like this: Times are changing. For decades, most of us have been paid the same way — every two weeks. But now prices are high and people need wage accessibility and financial equity.
Pay On-Demand is a financial wellness benefit. And, we’ve made it easy to use with no math on your part. Our Pay On-Demand feature with the Fingercheck General Ledger is integrated into your accounting system. We do the work of reconciling the debit and credit.
But what about taxes?
Well, our Payroll system handles those for you, too.
“The most helpful thing about the Fingercheck Payroll is the taxes being paid,” says Naeema Young, CEO of PreMedGroup. And that, she says, relieves stress and worry.
Our automated Payroll makes it easier to calculate taxes, as does our handy payroll tax calculator. According to Ernst & Young, 1 in 5 U.S. payrolls contains errors. Automated systems can be programmed to check for errors and inconsistencies, and that helps business owners avoid costly mistakes.
A National Payroll Reporting Consortium report found that businesses using manual payroll methods are up to 40% more likely to make errors than those using automated solutions. A similar study by the American Payroll Association found that businesses using automated payroll systems are up to 90% more accurate in their payroll processing than those using manual methods.
And our Accountant Portal allows you to add your accountant or bookkeeper to your account. This gives them access to our cloud-based portal where they can quickly and securely access the data you want to share — payroll records, general ledger and tax-related forms.
