  • How will VPA save me time?

    VPA provides the ability to process multiple director-only or simple no change client payrolls simultaneously with little intervention from you, potentially overnight or when you’re working on other higher-value client payrolls.

  • How will VPA make me more profitable?

    With VPA, you have the potential to process payroll more efficiently and at the same time maintain full oversight of your payroll workloads, without increasing your payroll team. This means you can take on more clients and potentially higher value ‘work’.

  • I don’t want to automate all of my client payrolls; so how will VPA help me?

    No problem. You can create as many client groups as you wish with varying levels of automation for payroll tasks. Even if you want to have fully manual payroll processing, by using VPA you will have full visibility of the workload in the payroll team and the ability to assign and reassign work between team members to ensure you stay on top of your deadlines.

  • Why do I need the integration with the myePayWindow portal?

    VPA is seamlessly integrated with the myePayWindow portal so that payslip delivery and payroll approval can be tightly bound into your payroll processes and you can deliver client information with minimum effort and maximum security. Any client approvals provided outside of working hours can automatically allow processing to continue without needing your intervention or input.

  • Can I set this up myself or is training and consultancy needed?

    VPA is designed to be implemented using the included ‘best-practice’ payroll templates and with the minimal amount of training and consultancy input. It is also fully flexible and configurable to your specific business requirements, and this means the set-up and configuration options will vary depending upon your mix of client payrolls.
