Managing labour costs on construction projects can be a daunting task without the right tools. That’s why ORANGE Digital Systems designed a special payroll solution for industrial and commercial construction companies, general contractors and specialist construction firms, including those operating in Quebec and subject to the CCQ.


EMPulse makes construction payroll processing easy by automatically calculating all hourly rates, taxes, union dues, workers’ compensations, earnings, premiums, benefits, deductions and expenses. Employees enter their hours at the job site or at home with our time entry self-service module, and EMPulse does the rest. Employee timesheets are automatically transformed into payments and costing information, which can be seamlessly integrated into your construction accounting system to help you monitor and control labour costs.


For the Quebec construction industry, EMPulse includes built-in CCQ parameters and automatically calculates CCQ, RBQ, CSST contributions and pension adjustments (facteur d’équivalence). Monthly multi-sector CCQ reports are generated with a click of a button.
