Paychex: Small Businesses Can Save with Bundled Services

A new Paychex white paper shows how small business owners can save time and money by integrating payroll processing and 401(k) administration

ROCHESTER, N.Y.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Small businesses can gain significant benefits by using one source for payroll processing and 401(k) administration, according to a new white paper issued by Paychex, Inc.

The new white paper, titled "Payroll and a 401(k) Plan Go Better Together," discusses how bundling payroll with 401(k) services makes sense because the same employee information is required for both processes. As a result, integrating 401(k) with payroll offers a range of advantages--including saving time and money, ensuring greater accuracy, and establishing better security.

"Once small business owners understand the multiple benefits of linking the company's 401(k) plan to payroll, they see that it's a path toward process improvement for their businesses," said Janice Nearen-Bell, vice president, Human Resource Services Sales for Paychex. "There's no other option that offers this much efficiency. For best results, payroll and 401(k) belong together."

To determine if payroll integration is right for their businesses, Paychex experts say business owners should consider the answers to specific questions, such as:

    --  How much vendor contact is required to complete specific tasks?
    --  How much time is spent inputting data on a vendor's Web site?
    --  What is the potential cost of a keying error, and what does it cost to
        find and correct errors?

The new white paper also presents a chart that helps readers determine the estimated time spent each pay period on administrative tasks. Through this calculation, business owners can obtain a personalized estimation of the time they can save through outsourcing 401(k) administration with their payroll provider.
