Paychex releases mobile app for businesses and their employees

This kind of makes me want to have my company’s payroll through Paychex:

Paychex Newsroom

“Paychex is proud to continue the expansion of its Software-as-a-Service offerings with the launch of Paychex Mobile. The app allows users to access their Paychex payroll, benefits, and retirement information when, where, and how they want—directly from the palm of their hand,” said Paychex President and CEO Martin Mucci. “With the launch of Paychex Mobile, we look forward to meeting the evolving needs our clients, while maintaining the personal service they rely on every day.”

Their new payroll app is available through iTunes and the Google Play library as well as Blackberry’s App World, for you dead-enders. Interestingly from a security standpoint, the app does not require that the employer use the app in order for any employee getting pay checks through Paychex to access their application. All that is required is credentials through Paychex’s authentication system. The press release does not specify how one goes about getting this sign-on information, however. And the app, which I’ve installed on my phone, doesn’t add any light to this question, either.
