Best way to do your pay!

Pros

BrightPay makes payroll easy and has a really modern look. I can train clients to use this in no time at all.

Cons

The windows and mac versions of the software differ in a few areas which is a real shame. It looks like this may be addressed soon though!

Best Practice Management Software

Whenever we needed help from the team, they were utmost courteous. If issue was not resolved at the point of first contact, they ensured that call back was made as soon as possible.

Pros

Ease of use and ease of implementation.
Great customer services especially from Customer Support Team.
Our clients found it easier to use as well in terms of uploading/downloading documents and e-signing paperwork

Cons

I would love to see in future time management chart implemented whereby staff diary can be created and seen by the senior team

BrightPay brightens up the payroll process!

Overall I'm really pleased with the software and they are always brining out new functionality.

Pros

The user interface is great and very intuitive, the help/support section is very good in helping you get up to speed with the software.

Cons

The way you have to download and install a new version each year - other providers keep all of your data in one place.
