GAYLE OSHRIN is an associate with Wormser, Kiely, Galef & Jacobs LLP in New York City and serves as a director on the AILA Board of Governors. She currently serves on several national committees. BeyondPay: payroll made easy 'I n most instances, payroll is like a four-letter word," said Rick Brown, CEO of BeyondPay. But with 650 clients and a 98 percent retention rate, BeyondPay is well-equipped to help AILA members handle their payroll needs. "[O]ver the last three, four years, [because of] the evolution of technology, our ideal client has become someone who realizes that they can no longer do 'business as usual,'" Brown said. "They need to take advantage of technology. They need to streamline operations. They need to become efficient. They need to become profitable." In that vein, if 100 percent of an employer's employees use direct deposit, BeyondPay can deliver a paperless payroll, which is more cost-efficient than paper delivery, he said. The money can be allocated among several accounts without additional charge. Also, the platform allows employers to see the check register, as well as reports, before finalizing the payroll. That is, they can determine how much cash they will need for a certain payroll and view actual pay stubs. Brown said that this preview should yield a payroll that's 100 percent accurate. BeyondPay charges employers with a flat-rate fee of $75 a month for five employees or less, whether they want to run a weekly, biweekly, or semi-monthly payroll. For the sixth employee or more, the employer will be charged $1.50 per transaction involving generating a check or a direct deposit. But BeyondPay's expertise is not limited to just payroll. For additional fees, AILA members can also opt for a platform that integrates payroll, time and attendance, HR, and workers' compensation. Also, since it is a Web-based product, employers and employees can access it anywhere, even on iPads, iPhones, and Android phones. Nevertheless, security levels can be set up, so different people can have access to different data. Customer support is also available.
