by CXOtoday News Desk    Jul 07, 2016


Zeta unveiled 3 new digital solutions in the Employee Tax Benefits and Rewards space. These new solutions, available on mobile and card platforms will radically simplify- how companies manage medical claims & reimbursements, how employees receive tax-free gifts from their companies, and how companies manage their incentives & rewards programme for employees

Zeta provides solution for corporate companies to manage the Employee Tax Benefits and Rewards programmes electronically. Using a single web-based interface, an HR Manager is connected to every employee’s mobile phone. And at a click of button, HR Managers can send grants of meal vouchers, medical reimbursements, gifts etc to all their employees, across cities, instantly.

These grants are transferred to an employee’s cloud-based Zeta account in the form of multiple virtual cards - each card representing a specific tax benefit and can be used only to avail that specific benefit. For eg: If an employee receives medical reimbursements grant in a virtual medical card then the money granted here can be used only towards medical purchases.

If the business is more risk averse than to go full speed ahead, more organizational flexibility needs to be instilled to get the most from an HCM cloud investment,” Shailesh Singhla, Country Head and Director-Sales at Oracle said to CXO Today earlier.( Read full Article)
