This chapter discussed the factor that affects the overall operational study of the payroll system of AMA Computer College, Legazpi City. It shows the brief background and current situation of the institution. It also includes the discussion on project objectives, system responsibilities and the scope limitations of the proposed feasibility study.
BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
As computer technology changes at such fast phase, many business sectors try to cope up by upgrading computer system constantly in order to stay competitive. The multi function ability of technology for its advance system is also an important factor for a company to use software. It makes efficient use of the advance technology and has ambition to discover more. Computers have the great impact on the profession of accounting. With the rapid growth of technology today, there is no doubt that computer will become a common asset in all profession. Biometrics comprises methods for uniquely recognizing humans based upon one or more intrinsic physical or behavioural traits.

In related to Payroll system it is a window based program especially designed to facilitate and simplify the monthly preparation of general payroll and related reports. It allows faster and more accurate computation of monthly gross income, deductions and net salary, has faster and less-resource-consuming generation of General Payroll and other payroll related reports and high security and integrity of payroll data and information. The proposed system also allows the monthly payroll schedule to be calculated accurately. By having all employees’ info like name, working hours, wages and others to enter in the database. Therefore, payroll can be done with the guide of the program. The system is good for its specialty in the fields of accounting. It is easy to use, effective and efficient in organizing and calculating the payroll. In addition, this study aimed to develop a reliable and manageable automated payroll system for AMA Computer College Legazpi City for a better management of the institution. The Proposed Automated Payroll System will give a big relief of the employee and employers as well.
The following contents are the overview about what services they rendered and the problems encountered when a transaction occurs and how they feel about their problems. Opportunities in creating this system in the institution were also stated herein. The AMA Computer College Legazpi City is in the process of ACTATEK Biometric System where the attendance of the employees and staff of the institution is monitored and directly forwarded to the main branch of AMA. The human resource supervisor now collects and extracts through CSV format. The staff’s attendance being forwarded to the head office serves as reference for salary purposes. As the salary of all the school employees are computed in hourly basis. Pay policies includes the payment of the employees’ salary every 15th and 30th day of the month where in cut-off dates payroll are monitored by the Human resource Supervisor. As soon as the data was submitted to the head office, processing has been made. The Human Resource Supervisor will now create manual verification of the attendance on weekly daily time record (DTR) of the employees concerned of the said institution which makes additional workload of the personnel-in-charge as well. This leads the researchers to propose an automated payroll system in order to answer the need of the school’s Human Resource Supervisor Department to have an efficient, fast and reliable payroll preparation.
