Payroll Software


Zambion’s web-based payroll software is ATO and NZ IRD compliant, intuitive, intelligent, and easy to use.   

One of the most popular aspects of Zambion is how multiple departments such as HR and finance can easily collaborate together.  New employee details like bank account, tax number, pay rate(s), can be entered by HR and set to “double approve”. This means that these key details will not go through to payroll until finance approves this information. ready workforce then date/time audit stamps the details, along with those who entered and approved the details providing you with a strong audit tool.

The Payroll Process

Zambion provides mobile app accessibility for your whole business. 

  • Staff can apply for leave, view rosters, manage their timesheet, update their details, submit expense claims, and more while on the go 
  • Managers can approve timesheets, manage rosters, view reports and communicate with their staff between meetings
  • Payroll staff can use the Zambion app to process their payroll, regardless of frequency
  • A truly mobile workforce management solution

As the system gives visibility across multiple departments, physical branches and even multiple countries, security is however paramount in Zambion. Staff can be granted access to only specific areas of the payroll process, or to a specific type of payroll process, whilst managers can be given customisable access and authority over multiple areas of an organisation for wider visibility and control. 

Zambion can easily automate a company’s superannuation contributions based on the staff’s taxable gross income and will increase depending on the staff members’ contribution, until a specified ceiling is reached. The company’s super contribution can also be based on certain pay elements such as ordinary hours, licenses and acting payments, but could exclude overtime and uniform allowances. Zambion’s automation of these calculations makes managing superannuation easy!  

Zambion is able to process an unlimited number of payment and deduction types, including payments to an unlimited number of employee bank accounts. Bulk upload of payments and deductions can be easily done via Microsoft excel. 

Zambion has the intelligence to automatically handle the proration of most payments, allowances, and salary amounts for new joiners. And with its “one-click” termination process that will calculate and prorate the required pay and leave elements the process of terminations is easy.

Zambion simplifies the application of cost and account codes to staff expense claims with a series of built-in expense claim types, custom rules and smart defaults.
