Importing into TRAMS from PayWindow
PayWindow has an export to TRAMS which is a Travel Agency Back Office system from http://www.trams.com.
A point of information for TRAMS users, PayWindow as a stand alone payroll package does not use or need General Ledger Account Numbers. The people at TRAMS were given the layout of our export file and they created their import tool matching up their accounts with the data elements. So there are no special settings needed in PayWindow. Any support for the TRAMS importing can only be provided by TRAMS as we've never seen their software.
Important information when setting up your employees in PayWindow: The Employee ID created in PayWindow should be the same as the TRAMS Back Office interface ID so the payroll transactions can be imported into the correct employee records in TRAMS.
Instructions for exporting and importing with PayWindow and TRAMS can be downloaded in Adobe Acrobat format from this link:
In 2011, the Employer and Employee FICA Rates were Split and TRAMS had to create an updated import tool to be able to pull the splits in properly.
TRAMS tells us they display the version right on the main screen. And the TRAMS Users must be on 3.03.03 build 19 or newer. The update file can be found at this link:
