We are using Excel to input payroll data eg hours, deductions, bonus, etc. and this information is viewed by the head office via sharepoint and input into the payroll program.

Is there a more efficient solution eg by using a single program so the payroll data is entered only once?

In my opinion Excel is really a prototyping tool, it is not really advisable for use with any on-going purpose such as this.  Trying to read between the lines: is someone rekeying the info into the Payroll program?  What Payroll program are you using?

If you're looking for a Microsoft solution, since you're using Sharepoint there's GP Dynamics?
