What we can conclude is that there are more people interested in payroll software on the internet and willing to find out more about it than other payroll services. Payroll services and payroll outsourcing is an approach that uses a third party to run the payroll process. 

Outsourced payroll services has its merits, but also comes with its own drawbacks. These include the higher costs of engaging such a service as compared ot using payroll software, along with the inability to be agile and react to changes in the staffing environment. 

Yet, the availability of external payroll services and outsourcing companies remains a viable choice for F&B business owners. Upon observing a group of companies who transitioned to payroll software, it was noticeable that they had previously relied on outsourced payroll services for various reasons. 

Firstly, they encountered difficulties when attempting to manage payroll internally, leading to challenges and mistakes. Secondly, they wished to allow their internal HR team to focus on important tasks such as recruitment and employee retention, rather than being bogged down by payroll responsibilities. 

However, since outsourcing schemes are more expensive and often come with complex coordination between the two parties, payroll software has become a more popular choice than others.

Imagine for a moment that payroll software is a lunch menu at a restaurant. You may order an item from the ala carte menu so you won’t be sleepy at work afterwards,  or you may prefer the full-set menu because you know you need a larger intake for more energy to do heavy work.

Just like your lunch preferences and order, the more you need, the more it will cost to get the necessary features from the chosen payroll software.
