Construction Payroll Software

Make Processing Complex Payroll Simple

The FOUNDATION® Payroll Module helps contractors pay their crews on time with precision — even with multiple prevailing wage, union, fringe and tax rates on each construction project.



Construction Payroll Features

Automated Timecard Entry & Processing

Enter payroll easily and efficiently. Smart system defaults fill in timecard information with just a few keystrokes — or sync mobile timecards — and FOUNDATION® calculates pay rates, taxes and deductions automatically.

  • Process multi-state, multi-union and multi-trade timecards without reentering rates.
  • Customize timecard screen layouts to align with your timesheets and your data entry.
  • Import data conveniently from your favorite timekeeping and field log apps.

Certified Payroll Software

Manage prevailing wage, Davis-Bacon and union payrolls with automatic calculations and minimal entry. As many rate tables as you use, FOUNDATION® keeps it all in order.

  • Easily calculate fringes and deductions based on regular, overtime or special rates.
  • Set automatic fringe reductions based on hourly or per-pay fringe costs.
  • Instantly create print or electronic certified payroll reports for numerous state, federal or local agencies.

Payroll Reports for Contractors

Find all the reports you need in order to help ensure total accuracy and compliance for your construction payrolls — from pre-check proofing reports to pay histories and job costed labor reports.

  • Sort payroll and tax histories per employee, job and more.
  • Track workers’ compensation, new hire reporting and EEO minority compliance.
  • Create and file W-2s for multiple states and localities.

It does all the tracking, all the unions. The certified payroll is a breeze.”
