Software programs for paying employees in-house

Need help with this questions.

Technology and In-House Pay Administration

You are the head of the human resources department in a small manufacturing organization with 200 employees. Your top management has asked you to find a way to keep your organization's wage/salary and benefits administration efforts in-house instead of outsourcing them. You have decided to focus your first efforts on the administration of wages and salaries.

For this assignment you will be reviewing what software is available today for employers who want to keep their wage/salary programs in-house.

Narrow your focus to two different software programs available today before you begin your paper. Compare and contrast the two. Consider the system needs/costs since you are sure that your organization will need to purchase new hardware too. Also consider the number of employees needed to successfully implement and utilize the software to meet your organization's direct pay administration needs.

Select one software vendor over the other and defend your selection. Support your choice with information from your readings/research.

Relying upon your reading and researched information, is this the best course for this organization to take? Why or why not?

Assignment Expectations:

Your paper should demonstrate critical thinking and analysis of the relevant issues and HRM actions, drawing upon all of the required background readings and relevant sources from your prior courses and your own personal search. Use website information sparingly (reputable websites only).

Prepare a paper that is professionally presented (including a cover page, a "List of References," and a strong introduction and conclusion).
