Each pay period, many busy payroll bureau managers find themselves having to input the same payroll data into both their accounting and payroll software. And while the repetitiveness of these tasks might not be in the same bracket as Greek mythological figure Sisyphus, the process can still be quite monotonous. If you haven’t heard of him, Sisyphus was a badly-behaved king who endured a unique punishment. Judged harshly by the gods, he was doomed to push a large rock up a steep hill, only to find it rolling back on nearing the top. Cruelly he was damned to repeat this task for all eternity.
Without integrated systems, you will find yourself entering payroll data repeatedly because the information needs to be in both the payroll and accountancy software. Having to repeat data entry tasks is a negative drain on time, and it also means the payroll will be more prone to human error. Luckily, the evolution of payroll software is not a myth, and technology now exists to reduce this type of endless payroll data entry.
BrightPay Payroll Software’s Application Programming Interface (API) integration feature allows it to easily communicate with and directly send the payroll journal to eleven different accounting packages, including QuickBooks, Sage, Xero and FreeAgent. Because BrightPay’s payroll journals can match all the file formats used by the accounting packages, the need for double entry of information is eliminated. This means there is less chance of errors that can crop up during duplication, which also omits the need to log errors on the payroll diary.
