Freight2020 Payroll Management streamlines and automates the calculation and processing of timesheets, allowances, entitlements, deductions, and payments.

Payroll management in the Australian road freight transport industry can be one of the most difficult and time-consuming administrative tasks – significantly more complex than in almost every other industry. The accurate calculation of remuneration for employed drivers can be subject to a bewildering number of factors and variables. Freight2020 Payroll Management brings all of these considerations together with astonishing efficiency as the payroll software developed specifically for the Australian road freight transport industry. From the straightforward full-time employment of drivers on salary for regular duties and hours, to variable overtime rates, trip-based or kilometre-based remuneration, award/EBA or company-defined allowances and deductions, casual or permanent part-time employment – Freight2020 manages all of the necessary rates, allowances, and deductions. Tricky calculations such as superannuation (SGL) contributions for long-haul drivers, and taxation with its individualised levies and rebates, are handled immediately. Employee leave and flexi-time entitlements are reliably tracked. Within Freight2020, timesheets can be entered in bulk, from remote locations such as depots, or via real-time capturing – saving time and eliminating data-entry errors. Timesheets can also auto-generate from jobs-related data with Freight2020 Operations Management. Payroll accounting data is seamlessly shared with Freight2020 Financial Accounting Management to provide the most powerful end-to-end payroll management software available in Australia (in fact, it’s so good and maintained with such up-to-the-minute currency that some non-transport businesses are using Freight2020 Payroll Management as their stand-alone payroll software). For every Australian road freight transport business, the payroll software solution within Freight2020 dramatically streamlines payroll calculations and processes via real-time automation right through to the pay run with payments and payslips distribution.

System-wide sharing of data for efficiency; controllable access for confidentiality.

The full integration of each module within Freight2020 means that whenever data is entered or captured into the system, it is automatically updated and shared throughout the system. However, you may not want all users of the system to be able to access all of the available data. Freight2020 can be configured to limit or restrict access to sensitive details, such as salary and pay-rate information, for example, to specific users like the HR manager and business owner only. The payroll software solution within Freight2020 is closely associated to the human resources software and compliance software solutions within Freight2020, eliminating the chase for lost paperwork, and errors caused by repetitive data-entry or the lack of compatibility between systems. Integration with Freight2020 Financial Accounting Management ensures seamless push-through from payroll to accounts, further eliminating the need for manual re-entry or importing of payroll data. Working together, the modules within Freight2020 serve each area of the business with relevant data and provide a complete picture of the whole business. Managers and business owners can enjoy an up-to-the-minute overview of the business from every perspective, and all current details, documents and calculations on any aspect or event within the system are readily available to the ‘right’ users, wherever and whenever they need them.
