Every year the Accounting Excellence Software Awards celebrate the very best in accounting technology. The winners are also voted for by the British public which makes any victory that much sweeter and provides a real time snapshot into the accounting world and its users. The independent voting across multiple criteria make the Accounting Excellence Software Awards extremely valued by both the audience and winners alike. Speaking of winners, BrightPay last year won Best Payroll Software but you know, no biggie. 

Not to toot our own horn or anything *toot toot* but not only has BrightPay been nominated (again) for ‘Best Payroll Software’, but our add-on product BrightPay Connect has also been nominated for ‘Best Non-Accounting Cloud or Banking App’. 

The payroll software category is a particularly hot category this year as payroll managers have played such a crucial role this past year during the pandemic. Amid rapidly changing furlough schemes, grant applications, wage calculations and an unprecedented demand for customer support, it's been a veritable minefield so to be nominated is truly a great honour. Not only this, but BrightPay is a firm favourite with small and medium businesses, accountants, and other payroll service providers due to it’s easy to use interface and automation of auto enrolment and RTI submissions to name but a few.

The Non-Accounting Cloud or Banking App category is a catch-all category designed to showcase products that don’t fit into traditional accounting categories but deserve a chance to shine. BrightPay Connect has been nominated as it is an online payroll portal that allows users to communicate with and share payroll and HR documents and payslips with employees. It also features some HR aspects where employees can request leave and employers or their relevant manager can approve the leave request. The employee portal is accessible anywhere and features as an Android and iPhone app for ease of use. This is our first time being nominated in this category and we are like proud parents!

This year, like everything else, the Accounting Excellence Software Awards will be held online with the winner of each category being announced on AccountingWEB next week so I’ll be getting my gladrags on and have a bottle of bubbly at the ready. Wish us luck!
