ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- October 7, 2013

Paychex, Inc. today announced its new software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform
that combines innovative technology with superior customer service to provide
human resource administrators with a streamlined and integrated approach to
workforce management. With all Paychex services – payroll, time and
attendance, HR, benefits, training, and performance management – accessible on
a single cloud-based platform with Paychex Single Sign-On, users can do what
they want, where they want, when they want, and how they want with greater
efficiency and productivity.

“We developed this next generation of Paychex technology using a ground-up
approach,” said Michael Gioja, Paychex senior vice president of information
technology, product management, and development. “By doing this, we’re able to
drive the latest features and functionality to a broader range of clients, and
give them the options they want today, with the foundation for the options
they’ll need tomorrow.”

The comprehensive, cloud-based offering gives users the flexibility to
complete all payroll and human resource functions themselves, or grant their
employees and business partners permission to perform tasks in a secure
environment. Users can also customize their desktop and create custom
workflows to work how they want and with greater productivity. Paired with
Paychex Mobile for smartphones and Paychex Online for tablets, the new
platform gives users the flexibility to work across devices and pick up on one
where they left off on another. Now, clients can start, edit, and submit
payroll on the go and at any time.

Technology for Working Smarter

Designed with end-user productivity in mind, the new SaaS platform from
Paychex gives users the technology they need to work smarter.

  *Intuitive User Experience – The new offering delivers a user interface
    based on consistency, simplicity, and intelligence to drive increased user
    productivity. The platform uses context-aware settings to anticipate the
    information the user needs based on the current task being performed. For
    example, if the user clicks on an employee’s pay rate in online payroll,
    the system assumes the user wants to make a change to compensation and
    automatically opens that module of the people application in a
    micro-panel, allowing the user to quickly and easily make the necessary
    change.
  *Centralized Data – The Paychex platform uses a single source of data to
    power all functions and applications. This allows administrators to update
    an employee record while in one application, such as payroll, and have it
    immediately available in other applications, such as time and attendance.
  *Reporting Solutions – As a one-stop shop for more than 140 standard,
    customizable, and exportable reports for businesses and their accounting
    partners, Paychex Report Center provides easy access to insightful
    information to help administrators operate more effectively and make
    informed management decisions.

    With Report Center, users can easily access Paychex’s most requested
    reports, or customize selected reports by date range, employee type, or
    more using Reports on Demand. Data Exports allows users to export data in
    a variety of spreadsheet formats to create their own graphs or import data
    into third-party software. For businesses with unique requirements, Report
    Writer allows users to create their own ad-hoc reports from scratch to
    meet their individual needs.

  *Mobile Technology – The Paychex Mobile App for smartphones offers a robust
    set of features for both employers and their employees that can be easily
    accessed from a customized dashboard of favorite tasks right on the
    device. Employers can enter, review, and submit payroll as well as access
    critical company information, including immediate access to valuable
    reports like the Payroll Journal and Cash Requirements Report, employee
    retirement information, payroll, health and benefits, tax documents,
    employee check stubs, and more. Employees also have access to key
    information on the go, such as their check stubs, W-2s, health and
    benefits account, flexible spending account, retirement account
    performance, time off information, and more.
  *Accessibility of Essential Features – Users can access their essential
    employee and company data from any application, without interruption to
    the task at hand. For example, if an employee asks a question about their
    401(k) plan while the administrator is in the middle of entering payroll,
    it’s as easy as clicking on the employee’s name in payroll to pull up the
    people application in a micro-panel, allowing the user to perform the
    requested task. Once the task is completed, the micro-panel returns to the
    background, leaving the user right where they left off in payroll.

Clients can also easily access the features they need and use the most with
the ability to customize the platform’s landing page. For example, users can
view or download their favorite reports from the reports widget, without
having to launch the Report Center application.

“With the launch of our new platform, we are helping our clients stay focused
on their business by placing expanded company and employee information
management in their hands,” said Gioja. “We’re combining our most intuitive
user experience that offers integration across product lines on one interface,
with broader reporting and analysis capabilities for all client data to give
our clients greater control and increased personal productivity.”
