NetLedger and ADP Launch Online Payroll and Accounts
Accounting application service provider NetLedger has formed an alliance with payroll company Automatic Data Processing (ADP) to offer an integrated "one-stop" payroll and accounting service on the Web.
EasyPayNet is available to customers of both companies and lets them automatically update their accounting records as their payroll is processed. Users can map employee and bank account data, earnings and deductions codes from EasyPayNet to their NetLedger chart of accounts, and automatically generate accounting entries from payroll runs, from a Web-browser client.
It may seem odd for a relatively new start-up to align itself with a giant of the payroll world, but NetLedger president Bill Mirbach said, "Sharing information seamlessly between applications is what the ASP model is all about."
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
