Know What To Pay
Automatic calculation of all straight time, overtime, and gold pay… including 6th and 7th days.
Meal Penalties are automatically calculated, giving you the option to call "Grace" to recognize all the meal penalties incurred.
Night Premiums are automatically calculated by just clicking a checkbox.
Just one click to split the straight, overtime and gold hours to three different jobs/episodes. This can be done by time of day or percent!
DGA Production Fees & Extended Days
DGA time cards are a snap to calculate. From extended days to production fees, everything is automated and easy to navigate.
Turnaround / Forced Call Hours
If you have to pay forced calls, just input the forced call interval, e.g. 10 hours, and the software tells you exactly how many penalty hours you incurred.
Duplicate Last Week’s Payroll
Each week, your payroll can be duplicated forward, saving you hours of time - especially for non-union shows where the pay typically stays the same each week.
Daily Labor Hot Costs
If you enter the work hours on a daily basis, you can generate a daily labor hot cost for each day on your production. And when the week is over, you've already prepared 90% of your payroll for processing.
Holiday and Vacation Pay
You can pay any percentage for holiday or vacation pay. Plus, you can pay straight time, 1.5x, or 2x on your holiday and vacation pay. And finally, you can pay min/maximum for 54 cumes and the like.
One Hour Camera Bumps
Simply check a box to turn any fractional hour of gold time into one full hour.
