RosterElf Payroll Integration: What You Need to Know 

"The biggest thrill wasn't in winning on Sunday but meeting the payroll on Monday."

—Art Rooney

What is payroll integration? First, to understand payroll integration, you should understand what software integration is. Software integration varies, but one use case is when two separate apps on your device (i.e. computer, tablet, smartphone etc.) share information to alleviate the need to enter data in each app separately. 

For RosterElf, Payroll integration allows you to manage your staff rosters and different pay rules to apply to the hours worked. RosterElf makes rostering and payroll far more straightforward and quicker to manage, which is what RosterElf does best. Once you're ready to pay your staff, you process the payroll in RosterElf, and the payroll integration pushes or exports that data to your payroll software in a format that your payroll software understands—saving you heaps of time and reducing errors. 

When you integrate these certain functions with payroll, you reduce the chance of unwanted errors and steer clear of repeatedly entering similar data. You can also save time reporting information to government agencies if you have all the information in a single place. 

Thanks to the breakthrough of big data, payroll integration is taking on more importance. Businesses struggling with how to keep, track and protect employee data cache find that payroll integration minimises the uphill struggle. It simplifies access to essential data of both you and your employees.

RosterElf has an array of information, including real-time variances and clock times, roster times, and everything in between that needs approval for payroll. You can also see staff comments and photo proof to give you an overview when reviewing employee timesheets. 


You can export the data to your chosen payroll provider once managers are satisfied with the approved hours. At the same time, award interpretation is accomplished.

  • Award interpretation directly to the payroll

After the timesheets are approved, the data is transferred to the chosen payroll with just a simple click. The award interpretation is then done automatically with pre-prepared timesheet drafts and is ready for processing.
