Payroll

Give your staff the tools they need to process payroll efficiently. From automatically creating accounts payable invoices to generating up-to-date financial reports, our accounting software does it all.

Integrated Payroll

Businesses that use inventory control software from one vendor and a payroll solution from another might not realize there’s a more convenient option available. Windward accounting software is fully integrated with the Windward System Five business management system, meaning you can oversee all aspects of your operation using one powerful, yet easy-to-use, application.

System Five greatly simplifies your work life because you’ll no longer have to switch back and forth between programs. Using an integrated payroll solution makes your life easier and that's just what Windward Software has set out to do. The program contains easy-to-use, automated features, reminders and reports that help you run your business, instead of just report on it.

  • System Five has it all - no need for additional accounting software
  • Accurate calculations reduce overhead costs
  • Simple step-by-step setup
  • Create reminders to stay on-task
  • Eliminate the need for third-party services
  • Post general ledger in real-time
Windward's payroll system is fully integrated into our accounting and business management software<br>

Fast Payroll Processing

Processing payroll quickly is a breeze with our payroll software because our integrated solution uses your current Windward System Five database. There’s no need for additional payroll or accounting software add-ons when you’ve got our robust solutions. Do you need direct deposit, checks or ROEs? Our payroll module offers it all.

So if you're tired of high payroll fees from third-party providers, or you’re struggling with data entry and reconciling account payables, Windward Software has the solutions for your unique needs.

Reduce Overhead Costs

Payroll typically represents a substantial portion of overhead costs within a business, and calculating those expenses correctly and efficiently is a must. With Windward Software's payroll option, you can do just that. Windward provides integration and other business management applications to help run your company as efficiently as possible. Integrating with a payroll option is just another way that Windward Software continually seeks to meet the needs of our clients.

Easy Step-by-Step Setup

All payroll software programs are designed to process payroll for employees, but each one might approach the setup process differently. Set up is the critical step in assuring your accounting software is configured to perform the way you need it to. Windward payroll offers an easy step-by-step guide to setting up your software. For additional guidance, the Help file offers detailed instructions, as well as tutorials, to demonstrate the process.

Automatically create Accounts Payable

Never miss a remittance by automatically creating accounts payable invoices for payroll withholdings. Ensure you pay Canada Revenue Agency payroll taxes on time, and avoid hefty penalties by having the withholding total already present in your accounts payable as soon as you process your payroll. Use this same feature for other payroll withholdings that need to be remitted to a third party by setting the appropriate due dates so you never miss a deadline.

Like the rest of Windward's business management software, generating reports are a snap to gain valuable insight<br>

Fully Integrated

Forget importing or manually creating journal entries to post your payroll. Upon processing payroll or a period, all entries are posted to the general ledger in real-time. You can also create up-to-date financial reports that reflect one of the larger costs of doing business: your employees. Payroll information is sensitive so no employee information is included on these entries, just the financial value.

Set Reminders 

It’s easy to overlook the little details that go along with generating payroll for your staff, including:

  • Updating employee information
  • Releasing vacation pay
  • Issuing a bonus

With Windward’s payroll and accounting software, reminders can be added to an employee, and before processing payroll, prompting you with the proper instructions.

Report Writer

Reputable payroll software should be able to do more than just generate paychecks. Windward’s payroll module offers standard reporting for the activity within the software. It also features a report writer that allows you to create your own payroll reports. You can even select an existing report and make modifications for your own personal use.
