Its exceptional features and unparalleled capabilities have garnered the trust of countless organisations across the country.
Here are some compelling reasons that make roPay the undeniable choice for your business.
1. Comprehensive Payroll Automation
RoPay revolutionises payroll management with its cost-effective and efficient solutions. You can process payroll for an unlimited number of employees on the roPay app, with a pricing of just 200 Naira per employee. Additionally, advance payroll, which includes statutory payments, is available at an affordable rate of 500 Naira per employee.
The roPay ‘Reverse Payroll’ feature also enhances the ease of calculating salaries for your employees. The comprehensive system takes into account various components like basic pay, allowances, and deductions, while also handling tax calculations and withholdings. Within the roPay payroll module, you can effortlessly generate precise pay slips, eliminating the possibility of human error. This guarantees your employees receive their salaries promptly and with complete accuracy.
Furthermore, this feature provides an added layer of flexibility, allowing you to make adjustments and corrections as needed. RoPay remains adaptable to changes in tax laws and regulations, ensuring seamless compliance. The outcome is a significantly more efficient and error-free payroll process, which not only saves your HR team valuable time but also reduces the risk of payroll-related inaccuracies.
2. Streamlined Recruitment
RoPay’s recruitment automation tools offer a streamlined solution to simplify the often complex and time-consuming hiring process for new employees. This feature begins at an affordable rate of 2000 Naira per active employee being managed on the app.
With roPay, you can conveniently post job openings online and seamlessly collect applications. For instance, if you have a vacancy for a marketing manager position, through the roPay app, you can post the job listing on various platforms. As applications flow in, the software aids in organising and managing them efficiently. It can even automatically screen applications based on predefined criteria, such as qualifications and experience. Moreover, you can conduct video assessments via the roPay platform, enhancing your recruitment process.
RoPay also provides recruitment workflows that you can use to update job applicants along the way. This enables you to send personalised messages to job applicants, ensuring effective and clear communication at every step of the recruitment journey. This comprehensive approach not only streamlines the recruitment process but also ensures that the best candidates are selected for your organisation.
3. Efficient Performance Management
With roPay’s performance management feature, you have a powerful tool at your disposal to enhance employee performance. Instead of the traditional manual process of setting goals and conducting lengthy performance evaluation meetings, roPay streamlines this for you.
Through roPay, you can easily establish goals and metrics for your team, and the system records them seamlessly. As your employees work towards these objectives, their progress is meticulously tracked and regularly updated within the software. You can provide feedback and evaluations directly through the platform, creating a seamless feedback loop.
Gone are the days of manual record-keeping, spreadsheets, or paper-based performance appraisals. The automated system ensures that performance metrics are consistently tracked, offering you a comprehensive overview of employee progress. This feature simplifies the entire performance management process, enhances employee engagement, and can even help you pinpoint areas for improvement.
4. Employee Self-Service
RoPay’s employee self-service feature redefines the employee experience, granting your workforce seamless access to critical HR resources. Whether an employee needs to retrieve their pay slip or request time off, roPay places these essential tasks at their fingertips, accessible via an intuitive web portal or a dedicated mobile app. They don’t need to contact the HR department for routine tasks. Instead, employees can effortlessly log in to the roPay Employee Mobile app and access their recent pay slips or download their annual tax statements. They can also submit leave requests or apply for advance payments through the app. This not only saves time for your HR team but also gives employees more control and convenience over their HR-related tasks. This level of self-service is becoming increasingly important in today’s digital workplace, and roPay makes it accessible.
5. Geotracker for Attendance
RoPay’s geotracker feature ensures precise attendance tracking, leaving no room for guesswork. This valuable tool benefits both in-house and remote teams, enabling you to effortlessly pinpoint the exact start of your employees’ workday. Field-based teams, like your sales force, particularly benefit from this feature. For instance, if you have a sales team that frequently visits client locations, roPay’s mobile app becomes an invaluable asset. With roPay, you can set up geofences around these client sites. When an employee arrives at a client’s location, they can use the roPay employee mobile app to clock in. The system will accurately record their attendance, and the geo tracker ensures that clock-ins and clock-outs are only registered when the employee is within the predefined work location.
This feature prevents attendance fraud and guarantees accurate records for payroll and attendance purposes. Geotracking is especially useful for mobile or field-based teams, adding an additional layer of accountability to your workforce management.
6. Efficient Spend Management
RoPay’s capabilities extend beyond managing employee salaries; it also provides a versatile platform for handling various financial transactions through its Spend Management module. With roPay, you can seamlessly transfer funds to vendors, family members, and friends, all within the same app. This feature ensures that you can manage your financial activities effortlessly.
Imagine you need to pay a vendor for a regular supply of office equipment. With roPay, you can easily set up recurring invoices, automating the payment process at specific intervals. This not only saves you time but also ensures that your vendor receives timely payments, fostering healthy business relationships.
Furthermore, you can directly pay invoices from receipts, streamlining expense management. Suppose you receive a receipt for a business-related expense; roPay allows you to convert this receipt into a payment, simplifying expense tracking and ensuring financial accuracy.
RoPay’s Spend Management feature also simplifies bill payments. Whether it’s utilities, rent, or any other recurring payment, you can conveniently manage and settle your bills through the app. This comprehensive financial tool streamlines spend management and empowers you to maintain control over your financial activities, offering both convenience and accuracy in your financial operations.
