BrightPay Connect is a simple smartphone and tablet app which includes the following impressive online features and benefits:

Instant Access to Payslips

Payslips are automatically available on the secure employee portal once the payroll is finalised. Employees will receive an email notifying them when their payslip is ready to view or download. Managers can select a date when they want the payslip to be visible on the employee portal. BrightPay’s payslips are presented in an easy to understand way without any confusing financial jargon.

Payslip Archive

Employees can manage current and historic payslips on their self-service employee app. BrightPay Connect maintains and archives all previous payslips and payroll documents where employees can view or download at anytime. Eliminate payslip requests where previous and historic payslips are requested by the employee when applying for a mortgage or loan.

Employee Calendar

BrightPay Connect offers a personal employee calendar that is easy for employees to track their leave from one central location including annual leave, sick leave, unpaid leave, maternity leave and more. Employees can view leave taken and leave remaining, eliminating leave balance queries.

Request Leave

With a few clicks employees can request holiday leave on the go with instant access to leave taken and leave remaining. Leave requests are automatically sent through to the employer or HR Manager. Once approved, employees will receive an alert on their employee app and via email with a leave approved notification. Their leave entitlements will be automatically updated on the self-service app. Approved requests will flow directly back down to the payroll.

Update Contact Information

With the GDPR, employees have the right to access their personal data that you hold on them. Employers must also ensure that their employees personal details are kept up-to-date. BrightPay Connect gives employees remote access to their personal information including their National Insurance number, postal address, emergency contact details etc. The self-service app also allows employees to edit and update their contact information. Changes to personal details will be sent through to the employer ensuring that employee’s details are kept fully accurate.

For added security, it is recommended that employees also password protect their device.

View HR Documents

BrightPay Connect allows employers to upload and store sensitive HR documents and confidential employee information, such as company handbooks and employment contracts, company newsletters or privacy policies. On the BrightPay Connect app, employees will have instant access to these HR documents all in one convenient place.

Smart Alerts

BrightPay Connect will alert employees if a new document is available on the self-service portal. Employees can access these notifications on the home screen of the app, keeping them up-to-date with annual leave approvals, recent payslips, edits to contact details or any payroll and HR documents that have been updated.

User-Friendly Interface

Once an employee opens their BrightPay Connect app, the home screen interface will show their employment details, holiday leave entitlements and notifications of payroll documents that have been uploaded, such as their most recent payslip.
