Employee self service.
BrightPay Cloud is an add-on to BrightPay on your PC or Mac* that introduces powerful new features.
BrightPay Cloud is not a "cloud version" of BrightPay – it does not allow you to completely manage or run your payroll online. Rather, BrightPay Cloud provides a way to connect your payroll data to the cloud to enable new features.
Firstly, BrightPay Cloud provides a secure, automated and user-friendly way to backup and restore your payroll data on your PC or Mac to and from the cloud.
Secondly, BrightPay Cloud provides a web/mobile based self service dashboard for employees and employers to log in and access their payroll data. Employees can even directly request things like annual leave and updates to their personal details which, once approved, will synchronise back to BrightPay on your PC or Mac.
There's a lot to it, all of which makes BrightPay Cloud an essential tool for keeping your payroll data safe and streamlining employee communications.
Never lose your payroll data again.
With BrightPay Cloud, you don't need to worry about manually backing up your payroll data. When you connect an employer to BrightPay Cloud, it will be automatically synchronised online as you run your payroll or make any changes.
BrightPay Cloud maintains a chronological history of your backups. You can restore or download any of the backups to your PC or Mac at any time.
You can restore a backup onto your existing PC or Mac (e.g. to roll back your employer data file to a previous version), or you can simply download a backup onto a new computer (e.g. to get up and running right where you left off).
Give your employees easy access to their payroll documents and data.
When you have connected your employer file to BrightPay Cloud, you will be able to invite your employees to access Self Service, allowing them to:
Employees can access Self Service from any computer (PC or Mac), tablet (e.g. iPad), or smartphone (e.g. iPhone, Android).
Save time, reduce admin, and effortlessly collect the payroll info you need.
Using BrightPay Cloud, you can not only give the employees of your clients access to Self Service, but you can also give your clients access to their own employer dashboard, allowing them to:
For employers using BrightPay Cloud
Whether it's your accountant, boss, colleague, departmental heads, or anyone else who may need to view the payroll data for your company, use BrightPay Cloud to grant them access to the employer dashboard and let them get what they need.
For bureaus using BrightPay Cloud
Grant access to the client dashboard for as many users as required for each of your payroll customers. Or share administrative access to all clients with your colleagues.
Our number one priority is security.
All communication between BrightPay on your PC or Mac and the BrightPay Cloud servers is carried out on a safe channel with maximum security.
As you or your employees browse the online dashboards, we use various methods to protect against things like data injection, authentication hacking, cross site scripting, exposure flaws, request forgery, and the many other types of vulnerabilities.
BrightPay Cloud is powered using the latest web technologies and hosted on Microsoft Azure for ultimate performance, reliability and scalability.
BrightPay Cloud is an optional add-on to BrightPay for your PC or Mac, and is priced per employer.
For single employers, it costs just £49 per year. We offer up to 59% savings for bureau customers who wish to purchase several BrightPay Cloud subscriptions for multiple employers, as follows:
Prices quoted are per tax year and are exclusive of VAT.
