AppsInHD At A Glance

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

Product Overview

HarrisData’s Payroll solution, AppsInHD, includes many HRIS features for managing employee information within a payroll-centric system 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 look at the full HRIS suite, see our AppsInHD HRIS review here.


AppsInHD has many features for streamlining and organizing employee data. For the purposes of this review, we’ve focused on the following three strongest payroll features:

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. 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.

In addition, a history of all data is saved for compliance purposes.

The solution includes ACA 1094 and 1095 B&C forms as well as.
