Feature Pack 5 for Infor HCM Workforce Management (formerly Workbrain ) delivers more than a dozen new features designed to accelerate a company’s labor performance and reduce the burden of administration for management.

Key among the new features is a new Payroll Wizard that automates the payroll process to reduce the number of retro adjustments following each pay cycle. The Wizard guides payroll administrators step-by-step through the payroll export process, including off-cycle exports for retroactive adjustments and terminated employees.

The enhanced pay rules built into HCM Workforce Management Feature Pack 5 reduce the need for pay rule customization, resulting in faster implementation and lower administration costs.

Feature Pack 5 also includes support for semi-monthly pay periods. Enhancements to the employee import functionality reduce data entry and establish greater flexibility in the development of employee form layouts. Error handling and messaging has been upgraded to improve data integrity.
