Hostage to your Salary Packaging software provider?

Salary Packaging Alternative Rout

Recently a LinkedIn contact working in the Health industry approached me to ask what other Salary Packaging software options are available in the market.
If you currently use the same tired, inflexible and uninspiring software as many others in the market place, I recommend you read on!
For many years software providers have provided the same old and clunky salary packaging software to its clients and ignored the need to upgrade the look, feel and functionality of its product. My LinkedIn contact was told that their software was being refreshed, however it will come at a cost through significant higher licencing costs. The alternative is….. well… there isn’t an alternative because the current version which they have been using and putting up with for so many years is no longer going to be supported. Or the other alternative given to my LinkedIn contact was to have the same company providing the software, outsource the whole salary packaging administration function – how convenient!
This doesn’t seem very fair does it? Clients who have been patient and loyal over many years supporting software that hasn’t met expectations, are now being forced to pay more or get out!
If the story above relates to you, there is now an alternative – MySalPack.
The MySalPack software is a web based solution to facilitate the processing and reporting of salary packaging in the Corporate, Rebatable, Public Hospital and Not-for-Profit employment sectors.
