Overview of the Payroll Software Market

Infoholic’s market research report predicts that the global payroll software market will grow at a CAGR of more than 9% during the forecast period 2019–2025. Payroll, one of the key components of human capital management, is a process of calculating wages and salaries of the workforce in an organization. Leaves, overtime, attendance, tax deductions, and other information are the factors that need to be considered for generating the payslip of an employee. Manual payroll processing entirely depends on the human effort, which increases the error rate. Payroll software, by eliminating the manual calculation of taxes and other payroll expenses, reduces the chances of mistakes and improves both HR-related activities and employee performance.

Several companies across verticals are benefitted by using payroll software to organize and simplify the complex payment decisions. These companies are focusing on adopting payroll software to stay compliant with the payroll laws and build transparency among other HR systems. There are several benefits of payroll software, which include activity updates & notifications, negligible errors, less time consuming, employee calendar, and many more.

According to the payroll software industry analysis, North America accounted for the largest share of the global payroll software market in 2019. The increasing adoption of human resources management solutions in North America and rising need to meet the tax regulations are few factors leading toward the adoption of payroll software in North America. The Asia Pacific region is expected to witness the fastest growth rate during the forecast period 2019–2025.
