TaxSlayer, which makes online consumer and professional tax and financial solutions, has launched Workful, an all-in-one, cloud-based small business solution that streamlines human resources (HR) and payroll tasks.
“If you’re like most small business owners, you wear many hats. You’re onboarding employees, running payroll, handling time cards, tracking inventory — and you’re doing it all manually or with disconnected programs that don’t talk to each other,” said Scott Rhodes, CFO of Workful.
Workful’s mission to save small business owners time originates from TaxSlayer’s start as a small, family-owned tax business in 1965. Through first-hand experience and a deeply rooted culture in customer service and value, Workful vows to work tirelessly to help small business owners get back to growing and owning their business.
“We needed a product that streamlined core business functions and we saw an opportunity to serve small business owners outside of tax season,” said Rhodes. “That’s when we decided to build our own solution that could work anywhere small business owners and managers work and make running a business easier and less stressful.”
Workful’s two main offerings are a payroll manager and an HR manager, with a point of sale (POS) system soon to join.
With the payroll tool, company managers can easily automate payroll for employees by syncing with their employee’s timesheets, calculating their paid time off, year-to-date earnings, deductions and taxes, and automatically pulling in employee timesheets. It takes the headache out of figuring out cumbersome business documentation.
The HR tool allows for simple new-hire onboarding, communication with team members and storing of important documents. Employees can easily access their paystubs, time off calendar, and tax forms, and they can manage other common tasks.
“Engaged employees are more productive,” said Dennis O’Keefe, Workful Product Manager. “The Workful employee app puts more control in their hands and increases their engagement with the company. It features time tracking functionality from any location, quick onboarding and is available in both the IOS and Android app stores.”
Once added to the suite, the POS tool will enable businesses to accept payment, manage inventory and track sales and taxes. It offers a fast and easy checkout process that improves the customer experience and encourages return engagement.
Workful is the simple, all-in-one small business solution to help owners spend less time managing their business and more time growing it. With Workful, owners and managers can keep track of changing regulations, their employees, and their company from anywhere, at any time.
TaxSlayer has been creating innovative software since 1989 and launched Workful as a part of their commitment to be bold in their pursuit of technological solutions. This same year, TaxSlayer launched a new consumer legal technology, LegalSpark. This solution connects consumers to an attorney for a 20-minute, $50 phone call to answer questions regarding business law, immigration, bankruptcies/collections, DUI/traffic laws and more.
