Small businesses looking to scale often face problems in human resources, or human capital. Essentially, their most important asset. A lot goes into planning a proper HR system – hiring, training, onboarding, payroll processing, developing ethics and compliance, internal management transition or provision of benefits; it’s a challenging feat. More so for a growing business and adapting when plans change.

Setting up a solid HR department seems to be the default choice to handle it all. After all, who better to handle human resource than a dedicated team highly vested in employees’ interests. Organisations that are running HR traditionally still focus on its transactional aspects – risk, compliance, record keeping, budgeting and payroll management. But things have changed with greater workplace transparency, legislative mandates that are redefining what HR means to businesses.  As we enter a new era of technology, people have screamed that the death of human resource is approaching and its role is transforming both in name and function.

We see automation taking over business processes and software can now accomplish many of those core responsibilities cheaper, faster and better than before. We’ve identified the most critical functions businesses must consider as they scale and how Payboy can help: employee experience, wage management and government compliance.


#1 Generate payroll reports that are 100% government compliant

Automating your payroll system means you no longer have to worry about manually generating another payslip again. We’ve identified the 5 most essential components of the payroll management process every business needs:

  1. Automatically calculate unpaid leaves, claims and timesheets submitted by employees
  2. Generate an itemized payslip for each employee without any hassle
  3. Statutory compliance accounted for during payroll generation:
  4. Generate IRAS income tax submission for the company
  5. Generate GIRO transfer file for three local banks in Singapore – DBS, UOB, OCBC.

#2 Hassle-Free Leaves & Claims Submissions

No longer worry about the plethora of leave types, we got you covered. Payboy’s software has a list of mandated leave policies by MOM and allows customised creation of ‘New Leave Types’ to suit each business’ unique workflow.


Create new leave types in just 3-steps.

Another bonus – Payboy’s Leave & Claims functions are seamlessly integrated on a single platform. This means you will see a clear overview of all your employees’ leave & claims as your business scales.

#3 Track Employee Attendance Like A Ninja

Monitor employees’ login/logout behavior to track productivity and reduce potential false payrolls (unplanned absences). Payboy’s software enables smooth onboarding of every employee with minimal steps:

  1. Personal Information
  2. Employment Info (freelance, part-time, regular, etc)
  3. Payroll Info (different pay schemes)
  4. Recurring Pay Items (e.g. CDAC Reimbursement, Commission, Mobile Allowance, etc)
  5. Leaves (adjust yearly leave quota)
