Reap the benefits of going green with Paperless Payroll!

Cost of Handling Paper

  • 70% of time is spent processing paper.
  • 90% of documents are paper.
  • 7.5% of documents are lost and 15% of documents are misplaced.
  • 30% of the work day is spent searching for hard-copy documents.
  • 30% of documents contain obsolete information.

Paper consumption has tripled since 1960 and Americans generate 85 million tons of paper into the waste stream.

The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that more than 400 million ink and 100 million toner cartridges end up in landfills each year.

One four-drawer file cabinet:

  • Holds 15K-20K pages of paper
  • Costs $25,000 to fill
  • Costs $2,000 per year to maintain

Just a few of the benefits of going green with Paperless Payroll:

  • Reduce business cost associated with paper, printers, copiers, fax machines, ink and toner cartridges
  • Eliminate filing cabinets and reduce office space
  • Conduct business in a mobile environment, resulting in faster responses to employees
  • Increase efficiency of you and your payroll staff by removing the time spent searching for and sending payroll documents
  • Secure backup of all payroll documents
  • Real-time updates and delivery of payroll documents

Who doesn’t like convenience?

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could easily access payroll reports when and where you need them? And what if your employees were proactively notified by email when their check stubs were ready to be viewed? Better yet, wouldn’t it be convenient if all this payroll information could be securely viewed and accessed from any device (PC, Mac, or Mobile)? Now, thanks to MassPay going green with Paperless Payroll for our clients, they can!

How does it work?

On payday,  you will retrieve electronic copies of payroll reports through ViewChoice or FileGuardian Secure PDF. Whether you view the information on a PC, Mac or mobile device, the process is the same – a simple, two-step secure download process.

As an added bonus, FileGuardian stores payroll information and check stubs for 12 months, providing you and your employees easy, convenient access to past payroll reports and stubs. Payroll information is stored securely using File Guardian’s industry-leading encryption technology and SAS70 Type II certified data centers.
