Payroll in the Connected Era: How integration has transformed the world of payroll

Application programming interface (API) integration makes our lives easier by simplifying processes. Put simply, API integration facilitates connectivity between two or more applications. APIs are everywhere and many of us use them on a daily basis. An example of an API is using your Facebook login credentials to sign into a third-party website or when you use your PayPal account to pay on an e-commerce site.

How can API integration help simplify your payroll processing?

BrightPay’s integration with HMRC, accounting software packages, pension providers and an employee self-service portal can help you improve your business and make life easier for you when processing payroll. Communication between BrightPay and other platforms means you can halve the amount of time that needs to be spent entering payroll data.

Some of the benefits of API integration when processing payroll include:

  • Increased efficiency
  • Increased productivity
  • Time savings
  • Reduced errors
  • Data accuracy
  • Simple processing

Coming soon: Pay employees directly through BrightPay

Coming soon to BrightPay – our latest API integration with payment platform Modulr will allow you to pay your employees quickly and securely, directly through BrightPay.
