It is true that in life it is important to have choice. Having the power to make decisions means you can do what's best for you. However, when it comes to choosing a product or service, sometimes having too much choice isn’t always a good thing.  

Studies have shown that when given too many choices, consumers can become overwhelmed. Because of this, in recent years we’ve seen some supermarkets reduce the number of products they carry. For example, instead of selling 15 different types of tomato ketchup, they might now have 5 options. Less choice can mean less stress and ultimately you will be more content with the decision you’ve made. Of course, this isn’t to say that competition isn’t important. Having competitors in a market can mean consumers get the best prices, the best quality, and the best service.  

When it comes to choosing a product like payroll software, once you’ve found the provider that’s right for you, the last thing you want is to be faced with even more decisions. When this happens, you may feel forced to choose between certain features or benefits. You may also find that some payroll software packages are too basic, while others, too complicated. Furthermore, you may find out you need to pay extra for particular features which you need your payroll software to have. Choosing a provider which offers an all-in-one payroll solution can make life a lot easier for you as well as benefiting your business. 

The benefits of choosing all-in-one payroll software 

  1. As the payroll provider has only one type of payroll software this will be their priority when it comes to updating the software. 

  1. Any new features the development team are working on will be added to the software that you use. 

  1. As your business grows and you require additional features, you won’t have to switch from a basic package to a more advanced one. 

  1. It allows you to make a quicker decision, saving you time.  

  1. You’ll be more likely to be happy with your decision and less likely to second guess yourself.
