What Can Business Learn from Teenagers?

American teenagers sent and received an average of 2,272 text messages per month in the fourth quarter of 2008. This averages nearly 80 messages a day and more than double the amount of a year earlier says a Nielsen Company rating.

“Businesses today are taking a paperless page out of the playbook teenagers use –find a simplified way of communicating,” comments Mark Williams, Marketing Director for National Payment Corporation’s EZStub. EZStub allows workers to review their pay through the receipt of text messages.

“Businesses today are finding ways to communicate with employees via texting rather than written paper processes. And businesses are quickly learning they can save money using an electronic pay stub solution. Companies can communicate more quickly while saving money by reducing paper and written records.”


EZStub’s added features include security, employer options and employee delivery options. “Security is the most important issues in business today and EZStub allows for specific user names and password options, ” according to Williams. “Payroll administrators also save time and effort because employees are able to obtain current and past pay stub information on their own with EZStub’s online self-serve features.”

Not only is this service readily accessible for the already texting teen market, the older generation benefits by the convenience and security. Companies are finding electronic pay stubs solutions like EZStub have eliminated written reports and reduced the cost of printing and delivering paper pay stubs.

With the growing and unlimited texting plans offered by carriers like AT&T Mobility and Verizon Wireless, American businesses will be turning more and more to a paperless solution for informing their employees of just how much they’ve earned.
