Acrede Payroll is Greener
Acrede is the first true ‘’payroll in a cloud‘’ software service provider. This has enormous implications on the environment globally,
in terms of reducing energy consumption. Acrede has embraced cloud technology to leverage all the advantages of hardware and hosting efficiency. This is achieved by using a “virtualised” environment.
Virtualisation cuts down on the power consumption and servers needed for the application, which allows us to deliver an environmentally friendly product that is also cost effective for our clients.
Most systems only utilise a very small amount of their capacity (approx 8%). Acrede’s software as a service system uses a cloud platform. This virtual environment also facilitates what is called an elastic cloud; so that when more servers are needed at month end processing, they can be deployed on demand, and then capacity reduced during other times of the month. We only pay for what you use; resulting in greater savings and efficiencies, which can in turn be passed onto our clients.
Cloud technology uses less energy and therefore helps cut down CO2 emissions.
Acrede also offers online payslips which reduces the use of paper dramatically. Over 3 billion people are paid worldwide. If every employee was paid online imagine the cost saved on paper and printing costs alone?
