AO4 ICT will help Bin-IT because Bin-IT will make less wage errors, receiving fewer complaints. It will also speed up the process of making wage slips, saving money for wages, time and resources. It overall makes Bin-IT a more efficient company and the lack of complaints will boost company morale and make the work place better. My software is very different than using a retail package with bespoke software. It is better for many reasons...
