How our payroll outsourcing service can help your organization

No longer simple clerical work, payroll administration requires an awareness of ERISA and labor regulations, comparison of deductions and reimbursements, coordination with financial institutions, and integration with a variety of timekeeping systems.

AGH's payroll specialists provide organizations — from small to large — with a dedicated team focused solely on delivering cost-effective and customer-oriented payroll solutions. The employer provides employee hours to be paid during each period (either from an AGH-provided and supported timekeeping system or an existing one), and AGH handles the rest.

AGH's payroll system software has the ability to do the following:

Employers have tremendous flexibility in timekeeping systems, pay periods, type of payments (electronic or paper), type of deductions and reimbursements, and increases or decreases in payroll size. While AGH processes the payroll, employers have access to all payroll data online at any time or on paper if desired.
