Bottom Line: A payroll solution with many HRIS features for managing an administrator's complete workflow.

Product Overview

HarrisData’s HRIS solution, AppsInHD, is payroll focused for automating wage, tax and garnishment calculations.

As a highly interactive and automated solution, HarrisData describes its features as “built in robots” who do much of the background work for you. A payroll calendar lets users gain an overview on payroll processes then drill down for a number of calculations including “What if” scenarios. The modern application can run on tablets, mobile and is touch and speak.

AppsInHD was designed as a payroll-first solution while including many features for tracking additional employee data. For a closer look at payroll details, see our AppsInHD Payroll review here.


AppsInHD is a robust hands-off solution for accurately balancing payroll with daily employee management. The following is a list of the top 5 features we’ve chosen:

1. Payroll Management – Plan pay cycles on a payroll calendar, and control all payroll types from an overview. Allow automatic recalculations for each individual and drilldown into those for further analysis. Easily import payroll information from time clocks, spreadsheets, and other third party time and attendance solutions. Quickly void and reissue checks as well as customize check formats.

2. Payroll Calculations – Complete all kinds of payroll transactions including regular/supplemental/nontaxable income, hourly and salary rates, overtime and double time premiums, gross-up, and minimum wage make-up. Allow auto pay for holidays, paid or unpaid leave, and scheduled time off. Configure unlimited paid time off types with flexible rules. All tax calculations take into consideration geographical locations, employee deductions, and employer costs.

3. Employee Management – Streamline many tasks such as salary and benefits administration for pulling together a complete salary history of positions and pay rates, as well as enrollment and effective/expiration benefits dates. View employee information such as spouse and dependents, along with FSA and 401k accounts. Skills, education and competencies per employee can be tracked in the system. Each record change is automatically logged for auditing. A complete organizational chart is stored within the system for gaining an overview as well.

4. Reporting and Data Access – Quarterly and annual reporting can be done within the system for issuing W2s forms and managing other federal and state filings. Users can run a “What if” simulation for predicting data-driven calculations on pay criteria with sample paychecks.

5. My Workspace Document Management – Alerts are set in place for administrators to keep track of ongoing tasks that connect with the payroll overview calendar. A list of all assignments can be easily accessed along with notes that provide custom details for guidelines and instructions on procedures. Attachments and other record imports are easily accessed and categorized through meta data.
