Ganaz Announces Launch of Digital Pay Stubs, an Innovative Feature of the Ganaz Mastercard® Payroll Card
Significantly Reduces Payroll Expenses for Agriculture and Food Processing Industries
Seattle, WA — August 24, 2022 — Today, Ganaz announced the launch of digital pay stubs, an innovative new feature of the Ganaz Mastercard® Payroll Card, enabling employers and workers in agriculture and food processing industries to finally move to a fully digital payday.
Agriculture and food processing are some of the last industries to move away from paying people with paper checks and printed pay stubs. Many workers are still unbanked, making 100% direct deposit hard to implement. Payroll cards allow farmworkers to receive their pay electronically without setting up a bank account while saving employers the money, time, and resources needed to process and distribute traditional paper paychecks to multiple farm locations.
Historically, one challenge with payroll cards has been paystubs. While in theory, workers can access paystubs electronically, in practice, workers are often reluctant to open email accounts needed to receive digital paystubs, citing issues with technology, usernames, and passwords. Lack of e-mail access for the workforce means that farms offering payroll cards usually have to continue printing and distributing pay stubs, costing the company time and money.
“ I had been trying to move away from paper checks for years; the hangup was always getting paystubs to our workers,” said Tiffany Davis, Office Manager at K&K Land and Management. Ganaz has now solved this problem with the first paycard that enables digital paystubs without requiring employees to create email accounts or download a mobile app.
Digital Pay Stubs Benefit Employers and Workers
Ganaz customers have already benefited from deploying the Ganaz Mastercard® Payroll Card with digital paystubs. K&K Land and Management, an apple, cherry, and pear grower in Washington, recently started delivering their Datatech pay stubs electronically to workers via a text message from Ganaz linked to the secured Cardholder Portal.
“Having the ability to send digital paystubs has saved me HOURS worth of work, money on checks, ink, and support staff to stuff checks/paystubs and hand them out,” Tiffany continues by adding, “Moving away from paper checks ensures the correct employee receives their money and paystub without having to dedicate hours of work to it. It also alleviates the rush at the end of harvest to get checks to [H-2A] workers before they head home.” The Ganaz paycard coupled with digital pay stubs will enable K&K Land and Management’s payday to be easier and faster.
Workers also benefit from digital pay stubs. Along with text message notifications for payday and card transactions, they’ll receive secured links to their Cardholder portal, with easy and instant access to all pay stubs associated with their payroll card deposits.
