Payroll for Ten Bucks!

September 2016

Zambion will be offering a community edition of their payroll module on iPhone, iPad, and Android for companies with 1-10 staff for less than $10 per month in New Zealand, Australia, and the United Kingdom.

In addition, upgrade paths to HRM, Leave Management, Time and Attendance will be available at an extra cost. This means that as small companies grow they can rest assured that their Payroll, HRM, Leave, Rostering, and Time and Attendance System can grow along side them all the way up to our Zambion Enterprise editions that is designed to manage thousands of staff. Stay tuned!

Zambion will be releasing a fully functional newly designed desktop / web version. This will include all the features you love today plus any new additions and reports that have been added over the past twelve months.

October 2016

HTML5!

Windows 10?
Zambion Silverlight

Depending on our customer's up take of Windows 10, Zambion is planning to release a windows 10 version as a high performance replacement for it's current Silverlight version. This version will be targeted towards customers who require application speed and responsiveness whether it be a large payroll processing, complex rostering scenarios, and so on. This version will be targetted towards the Zambion power user.

As Zambion's existing Silverlight technology uses the same/similar coding base C#/XAML as native Windows 10 applications, high performing version would be a easy transition. However, as Windows 10 is not a free upgrade for businesses customer demand will determine if a dedicated version is required or existing app / HTML5 is sufficient.

Furthermore, Zambion will continue to support it's high performing browser based Silverlight version until such time as customer demand dictates otherwise or browsers drop support for the Silverlight plugin.
