Excel For HR Functions vs. Advantage Payroll Services Software

excel for HR functions Freeport

Most companies use Excel for HR functions. And some use Excel for ALL HR functions. Excel is powerful, no doubt about it. Twenty-five years ago it was the only game in town.

But there are better options today. Advantage Payroll Services has solutions for all of your HR functions.

  • TimeWorksPlus—employee time and attendance software
  • TimeWorks Mobile—companion mobile app for employee timekeeping
  • TimeSimplicity—advanced scheduling
  • ApplicantStack—recruitment software
  • WorkforceHUB—unified HR portal

Why is Advantage Payroll Services software better than Excel for HR functions?

No Training Required

If you want to perform calculations more complicated than adding numbers in a column, Excel takes some training. If you want to calculate severance or PTO, for example, it takes more than a little training.

Contrast that with software designed specifically for HR. If you can send a text on your phone, you can use TimeWorksPlus. We’re talking no learning curve at all.

Designed For Efficiency

The tools are designed to help associates and administrators be more efficient. With all due respect, that wasn’t what Excel programmers were tasked with.

With HR software, it’s easy to find what you need. Need to clock in for a shift? Boom! The webclock greets you when you open TimeWorks Mobile. Need to request PTO? You can do it from the time card screen.

Managers can make complicated team schedules with TimeSimplicity. But using the software isn’t complicated at all. Select employees and drag them into shifts on a calendar. Copy templates forward as needed. Easy!

Can Excel do that?

Yes, we know you can copy and paste in Excel. And you can import Excel data into many types of business software. But data imports for HR functions is quick and easy with Advantage Payroll Services software.
