(, a leading provider of Software as a Service (SaaS) and Workforce Management Applications with a major push in HR, Payroll, and Time and Labor Management, has recently added Payroll Service Plus to its network of partners. Payroll Service Plus partnered with to offer its clients a time and labor management application complete with job costing and accrual tracking modules.

“With the utilization of job costing becoming more common within organizations, it was imperative that we attain a time and labor management application that had the ability to track time spent in different labor buckets,” said Jon Sigman, President of Payroll Service Plus. “Many of our clients need to figure out direct versus indirect costs in order to bill their clients accordingly. These costs are tracked by numerous organizations via spreadsheets, or worse, handwritten on paper.”

The job costing feature within’s application enables organizations to track employees’ time by locations, departments, jobs, tasks, etc., and has the option to specify a different rate for each. “With the application, I can provide my clients with a better solution that gives them the ability to break down costs in a more efficient manner and significantly improve the accuracy in which they bill clients,” stated Sigman.

“The other feature we were looking for when searching for a new application was a robust accrual tracking module,” explained Sigman. “The application would have to stand up against those larger publicly held companies and provide us with the means to compete more effectively. We feel the application is a real contender. The ability for employees to easily log in, request time off through multiple time off buckets, and check their accrual balances is definitely a wow factor for organizations trying to streamline accrual-related processes.”

The time and labor management offering integrates with Payroll Service Plus’ payroll system, providing a single user experience and interface for both applications. “Most organizations don’t want to deal with multiple systems, so integration beyond single sign on is another major selling point to the application that we didn’t initially anticipate,” said Sigman.

To notify existing clients of the new offering, Payroll Service Plus has created some small ads for internal services within its web-based payroll system. Sigman concluded, “60 to 70 percent of our clients utilize this payroll system, so each time they come in they have the opportunity to learn about this new application.”
