    How important is technology in YOUR business?

    Payroll providers (service bureaus) have specialized technology requirements which tend to make things complicated. We are here to help!

  • Questions to consider:

    How much time and labor dollars do I waste by not automating repetitive tasks?

    If I could reduce or eliminate correction payrolls for mistakes, how much would that improve my business flow?

  • d Payroll Audit System

    Audit the data in your payroll database and payrolls BEFORE they are processed. Reduce your correction payroll runs by up to 80%!
    View User Guide

    The Payroll Audit System assists the payroll service bureau in "scrubbing" your payroll data before and after payroll processing. This helps reduce the need for correction payroll runs, tax problems and a variety of other issues. The system consists of two main parts: Scheduled Audits and Pre-Process Audits.

    MANAGEMENT CONSOLE

    The majority of the Audit System management is accessed via a separate management console. Add/edit/remove audits. View reports on audit status, who is getting which audits and when, etc. Archive/purge log data.

    SCHEDULED AUDITS

    The Scheduled Audits are SQL queries that are run against the payroll database and the results emailed to specified recipients on a customizable schedule. These audits are completely customizable to allow for an infinite amount of possibilities. (Example: List companies with an incorrect tax setup.) Run audits daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly or even all throughout the business day. Any of the audits in the system can also be run manually (ad-hoc). The audits generate HTML tabular formatted emails to desired recipients and are easy to read and appealing to the eye. Audits may be set to be formatted as "alerts", using bold and noticeable colors.

    UNLIMITED NUMBER OF AUDITS

    The system comes preconfigured with approximately 100 different audits, ranging from invalid employee birthdates to missing taxes on W2 employees. These reports can help fulfill SAS70 audit requirements.

    FULLY CUSTOMIZABLE

    All of the audits performed by the Audit System are written in standard T-SQL code. Therefore, changes to audit parameters are easily made. For those experienced in SQL, fully custom audits can be written to analyze data in any of the payroll database tables.

    PRE-PROCESS AUDITS

    The Pre-Process Audit portion of the system provides a customized “Payroll Submit” screen in the payroll system which executes special SQL queries against the payroll. When users local to the service bureau (CSR's, Citrix users, etc.) enter the submit screen, the system automatically audits the payroll based on parameters that you define. (Example: W2 employees missing taxes, paycheck is over a certain amount threshold.) Preprocess audits can be configured to be mandatory or approvable. For mandatory audits, the item must be corrected before they are allowed to submit the payroll. For approvable audits they are given an “Approve” button which logs the user and time that they have approved it. Approvable audits can be assigned roles from the payroll system to allow only users in those roles to approve those audits. For remote clients, you can run the audits on the payroll before it is processed by using the customized Job Requests screen. If any audits fail, the payroll can be opened, corrected and re-submitted. This process will greatly reduce your correction payroll runs and tax department issues at quarter and year end.

  • d Employee Import Utility

    Customize an employee import from a client’s data file...
    View User Guide

    The Employee Import Utility allows you to import new employees, update existing employees and import/update employee information in the payroll database from customizable, preconfigured Excel template files. Virtually any employee data can be imported/updated, from demographics to taxes to HR tables. Multiple levels of validation occur before an import can take place. (Example: When importing deductions, earnings and taxes the utility verifies that the items exist on the company level before allowing the import to proceed.) This helps prevent "bad" data from being imported into the payroll system. The utility can also be used for quick manual batch entry of employee data instead of using the new hire screen in the payroll system.

  • d Company Import Utility

    Import company setup items from a client’s data file...
    View User Guide

    The Company Import Utility allows you to convert a new company, import new or updateexisting company information in the payroll database from customizable, preconfigured Excel template files. Multiple levels of data validation occur before the import can take place. (Example: When importing deductions, the utility verifies that dependent items, such as the agencies or calc codes, exist on the company before allowing the import to proceed.) This helps prevent "bad" data from being imported into the payroll system. The utility can also be used for quick manual batch entry of company data instead of using the screens in the payroll system.

About

Who we are

Erin Baker is the face behind the name of Baker Technology Consulting. He has been in the IT field since 1999 and has been a computer-phile since the age of 12. He started out selling computers at Best Buy but decided he'd rather fix them than sell them. So he made the jump from sales to repair and installation. This began his career in Information Technology.

Shortly thereafter, in 1999, Erin landed a job as systems administrator at Occidental Petroleum, a global oil, gas and petrochemicals company. While with the oil company, he oversaw thousands of computers, helped manage a network that spanned several continents and was exposed to the very latest in enterprise technology. He was also chief architect for the company's global Citrix farm and oil field automation systems.

In 2004, Erin came on board at Fastpay Payroll as their "jack-of-all-trades" systems administrator. At Fastpay he has learned much about the payroll provider industry and how complex the technology requirements can be. His time at Fastpay has also made him very familiar with the inner workings of the payroll software Millennium 3™, developed by MPay Software.

John Bogert is the latest addition to the Baker Technology Consulting team. John brings over twenty years of experience as an IT Director and Database Application Developer. Eleven of those years were spent working for Payroll Systems, a Millennium™ payroll service bureau in Walnut Creek, California.

In addition to his duties as IT Director, John was involved with the day-to-day payroll operations as well as writing scripts, Crystal Reports and various utilities to interface with the Millennium 3™ application and its Microsoft SQL database. He also implemented a hosted Citrix environment to allow end-users to run Millennium™ without installing it on their local system. During his tenure at Payroll Systems, John has become intimately familiar with the intricacies of the Millennium 3™ application and the payroll provider industry in general.

As Baker Technology Consulting continues to grow, John will enhance and support the various Baker Tech products, write scripts and Crystal Reports for clients, and assist Erin Baker in the development of new products.
