Sage VIP Premier HR

With Sage VIP Premier HR, your people are front and centre in this integrated and logical extension of the VIP Premier Payroll system. It’s built around your business’s HR responsibilities, managing your employees right through their complete employee lifecycle. From job placements to performance management, employment equity compliance, training and skills development, to succession planning, and all the employee documentation required throughout, VIP Premier HR integrates all these functions in a streamlined solution.


Premier Employee Self Service (ESS)

Leave processing has never been easier, with VIP Premier ESS. Put these user-friendly tools in your employees’ hands, allowing them to update their profiles, submit leave applications, submit claims and overtime, participate in performance reviews, as well as to view their payslips and IRP5s online. The capture, approval and maintenance of employee leave is streamlined, paperless, easy.


Leave Management

What better way to manage your company’s leave administration – both within the framework of the Basic Conditions of Employment Act (BCEA) and within your own company-specific leave policies? The Leave Management Module empowers you to do this and is also fully integrated with payroll fields, so you kill two birds with one stone and eliminate double entries.


Personnel Management (Basic HR)

Embedded in Premier Payroll is the Personnel Management Module, giving HR management personnel direct and easy access to accurate employee information. This module covers range of HR processes like interviews (and the relevant information to inform them, like career and remuneration history), qualifications, training, and disciplinary actions, and a lot more.


Employment Equity

Get fundamental guidelines on all aspects and laws relating to Employment Equity according to the latest South African legislation, with the VIP Employment Equity Module. Follow the step-by-step processes for implementing Employment Equity, as well as working towards compliance targets and printing the statutory reports (EEA2 and EEA4) required by the Department of Labour.


General Ledger

Save time when it comes to balancing your company’s salary journal, with the VIP General Ledger Module, which allows you to use general ledge account codes and cost centres when allocating salary costs. Integrated with Sage Evolution, 300, X3, SAP, Oracle and Syspro, General Ledger streamlines your accounting functions with HR cost processes.


InfoSlips (electronic & mobi payslips)

For a paperless people management solution, VIP InfoSlips provide your employees with an e-payslip (identical to the VIP paper payslip), which presents an interactive statement, indicating all their benefits in a user-friendly display. InfoSlips also enable you to communicate in a unique way with employees – allowing you to attach MS Word or Excel documents, and include travel claims, newsletters, and increase notifications, etc. InfoSlips can be conveniently archived in the cloud for seven years and employees can register to access this historical data online.


Intelligence Reporting

Sage VIP Intelligence Reporting will empower you to improve reporting processes across your whole business. With its foundation in Microsoft Excel, the Intelligence Reporting Module allows you to easily create reports, analyse data, glean insights and improve your visibility of your organisation. With these insights, you can make informed business decisions. You’ll be given a suite of report templates (over and above the payroll reports in VIP), which can be customised to suit your requirements and make for insightful and easy-to-execute reporting.


Job Costing

Allocate your labour costs to business units, departments, and even on project level with the Job Costing Module. Your employees’ time allocation and labour costs can be individually managed based on their hours spent on different projects and/or sites.


Loan Module

Record and manage any loans to staff with the Loan Module, with its built-in calculator to help you reduce risk. It calculates the maximum loan amounts that staff can afford based on their income and expenditure. The monthly loan statements also give you the option to effectively manage interest rate changes.
