When it comes to processing payroll, you probably imagine yourself stuck in the office, staring at the clock, typing figures into your payroll software. Maybe you imagine yourself working from home, waiting for the latest version of the software to download before you can begin working on a client’s file. 

When you use a payroll software that's desktop based, you’re confined to whatever device you have the payroll software downloaded to. This can lead to situations like staying in the office late on a Friday evening to make sure payslips are finalised on time. Another scenario may be where you’re travelling, you forget your laptop charger and now you’ve no access to your clients’ payroll. Well, with fully cloud payroll software, you don’t need to worry as you can access your clients’ payroll files from anywhere, from any device. 

Cloud payroll software is revolutionising how accountants, bookkeepers and payroll processors process their payroll. By processing payroll in the cloud, you can jump on a plane, travel to any location you want (so long as it has steady internet connection), and process payroll straight from your browser. All you need is a smart device (tablet, laptop, etc.), your login credentials, and you’re good to go. This more flexible approach to work can boost your firm’s wellbeing, with a survey showing that remote workers are 20% happier

No more having to worry about installing the software on your PC, updating and downloading the latest versions, or backing up your payroll data to a third-party hosting service or external hard drive. Changes are made to your clients’ files in real time, as you work. No more coffee cups lying around the office or excess paperwork taking up desk space – cloud payroll software lets your team break free from the office by letting them work on client files simultaneously from any location. So whether one of your team members is off skiing in the Alps and another is soaking up the sun a Spanish villa, as long as they have access to internet connection, your clients will still get the same stellar quality, just with a more modern approach from your team. 

You can also wave goodbye to spending time backing up your payroll data. Fully cloud payroll software will keep your clients’ payroll data synced to a secure remote server in real-time, no matter the time or who’s in the file. This saves you heaps of time and offers a more productive and efficient workflow, in a fraction of the time. Plus, if your browser crashes, the peace of mind knowing that your clients’ data is saved in real-time is irreplaceable. 

BrightPay’s fully cloud version will be available by the start of the new tax year, which in hindsight, is just a couple of weeks away. It will be very similar to the desktop software in terms of layout and visuals, so there’ll be little to no training required for your team. If you’re not a fan of the cloud, don’t worry, our desktop version isn’t going anywhere. 

Processing payroll has never looked so good, so grab your favourite pair of sunglasses and enjoy the sunny trips ahead. With cloud payroll technology, the sky’s the limit.
