Paycheck processing is a critical function for every organization, regardless of its size or industry. Financial institutions especially need to be prompt and compliant when conducting background checks on applicants, particularly when it comes to extracting data from paychecks.
It is usually a time-consuming, error-prone and tedious process, staff need to manually enter data from paper based or digital paychecks into a system or spreadsheet. Automating paycheck data extraction can help organizations to streamline their process.
Automation platforms like Bautomate can help simplify this process, saving time and reducing errors. Report says 44% of organisations use automation to streamline their payroll processes, including paycheck data extraction.
The Challenges of Manual Paycheck Data Extraction & How Automation Can Help
A paycheck details an employee’s earnings and deductions for a specific pay period. Details such as the employee’s gross pay, taxes withheld, deductions for benefits such as health insurance or retirement plans, and net pay are extracted for the purpose of employment proof and income analysis.
One of the biggest challenges of manual paycheck extraction is the potential for errors, such as incorrect calculations, mislabeled pay periods, or missed deductions that can result in compliance issues, unhappy employees, and time-consuming rework.
By using advanced technologies like artificial intelligence, the process of extracting data can be automated allowing for a more accurate and up-to-date process. Automation enables businesses to scale their paycheck operations to meet the needs of a growing workforce.
Organizations that use automation for paycheck processing achieve 30% to 70% faster processing times, a survey by deloitte.
