BrightPay Connect is an add-on cloud product for BrightPay Payroll which allows users to connect their BrightPay Payroll employer data to a web based portal. BrightPay Connect will provide the following features:
Users can automatically backup and restore payroll information on your computer to and from BrightPay Connect. There is no need to hit any backup button, this is an automated process. BrightPay Connect will synchronise any changes you make to your payroll or employee information back to BrightPay Payroll. Your historical backups and data files are accessible and can be restored at any time.
Employees payslips are stored securely on BrightPay Connect allowing for easy access on the go for employees. Employers will still have the ability to email, download or print payslips from BrightPay Payroll. Payslips can be set up by the user to be automatically emailed from BrightPay Connect to employees, saving the need to manually email them from BrightPay Payroll. Employees can view and download their historical payslips.
Bureaus will have online access to an overview of their payroll clients payroll information. Here, bureaus can add other employers to the dashboard. Employees can be invited to use the employee self service portal. Bureaus can also view the employers PAYE reference code, when the last payroll has been finalised to, their clients automatic enrolment staging date and more.
Adding new users to BrightPay Connect is easy. Employers can grant access for additional users to view the company payroll date, authorise annual leave requests, process payroll and more. There is no limit to the amount of additional users that can be set up. There are two types of users:
An administrator has full control over a BrightPay Connect account, with the ability to edit account settings, add other users, redeem purchase codes, connect employers and manage all employer and employee information and processes
A standard user typically has access to just one employer in your BrightPay Connect account, although they can be granted access to multiple employers if required. A standard user can view all employer (and associated employees) information and process employee self-service requests.
An employer that looks after their own payroll can grant access to their accountant so that the accountant will be able to create the various reports necessary for accounts preparation.
