Got Complex Payroll Rules? Let's Automate Them to Ensure Complilance.

Managing complex payroll policies can be incredibly labor intensive. Administering different rules for sworn versus civilian personnel and tracking pay differentials is no easy task. Relying on paper time cards and spreadsheets to track employee time and attendance is time consuming and prone to errors. Manual oversight may result in unnecessary compliance risks and ultimately cause your agency to exceed its budget. You need a solution you can trust to automatically apply your payroll rules. You need Workforce Management PLUS Time and Attendance.


Streamline Timekeeping and Ensure Accuracy

From shifts crossing midnight to shift differentials, holidays worked, and much more, you can accurately capture hours worked and automate payroll processes using your own policy rules. Personnel use auto-filled time sheets to view their hours worked, which include authorized scheduling changes. Supervisory oversight workflows confirm accuracy. Once pay periods are locked, time and attendance data is automatically transmitted to your payroll system or printed for data entry. It’s your system—automate your rules your way.

Ensure That Your Payroll Policies Are Consistently Enforced

While your personnel are your greatest resource, they are also your largest single budgetary line item. By automating outdated methods with Orion's time and attendance capabilities, you'll have the tools in place to control the realities of tighter budgetary constraints.


  • Eliminate potential double-payments for same hours worked in different units
  • Automate maximum number of hours per week or day rules
  • Enforce self-assigned overtime policies
  • Provide real-time auditing from multiple points of view
  • Centralize timekeeping and eliminate redundancies
  • Automate CBA payrate policies and prevent double-dipping

Gain Insight into Employee Activities and Job Costs

Increase your awareness about the ‘where, what and for whom’ of actual time worked. Track assignment activities against internal cost centers, grant funds, or external employers to determine costs associated with routine services and special duty events. 


Using an interactive payroll screen, authorized personnel ensure 100% compliance with your requirements.  You'll be able to accurately calculate work hours and automatically apply pay exception rules to ensure union, payroll, and scheduling compliances.

Let's apply your criteria rules and automate the process for them. It'll save them valuable time that they can use for more critical purposes.

Adaptive Pay Rates for Personnel Back Filling Out-of-Class Ranks 

Orion takes adaptive role-based access to an entirely new level by including adaptive pay rates. As personnel are moved into temporary assignments, reassigned pay rates can be adapted for their hours worked while in that out-of-class assignment. It’s efficient, fair, and most important -- accurate.
