Sage WageEasy enables you to document key details about your employees including contact details, work history, employment conditions, and skills and performance. This information is easily accessed whether you need someone to cover a shift, are creating a roster or preparing for a performance review. 

Your employee records can be easily exported into reports such as length of service and leave balances, to help your business analyse workforce costs and performance.

Sage WageEasy reporting capabilities helps your business make informed decisions on payroll and HR management issues. 

Sage WageEasy’s intuitive interface simplifies the process of creating and retrieving reports. Sage WageEasy can generate user-friendly reports on payroll, human resources, accounting and more.

Ensure accurate and seamless exchange of data between your payroll software and other business systems. Sage WageEasy can import timesheets from third party applications such as time & attendance, rostering, clock card and point of sale systems.

Sage WageEasy easily integrates with your existing accounting software to reduce manual processing errors.

Your payroll journal can be exported into your accounting software using both XML and CSV formats. Sage WageEasy can also create other specific file formats for export if required, creating a seamless process for integrating your payroll software system and general ledger.

Staying compliant with superannuation requirements is an essential part of the payroll process.

Sage WageEasy streamlines the superannuation process by automatically calculating contributions to superannuation funds for each employee once a default superannuation fund is set up for each employee.

Sage WageEasy has flexible setup options for superannuation funds such as: 

  • Employer compulsory award
  • Employer additional contribution
  • Employee additional contribution
  • Employee salary sacrifice

To further minimise the time you spend on preparing and paying superannuation contributions, we offer a superannuation clearing house service. Express Super removes the need for multiple payments, validates data before it is submitted to reduce errors and is compliant with SuperStream requirements.
