Your Challenges

Business admin

Keeping up with business admin isn’t only challenging but incredibly time-consuming, distracting you from other important tasks.

Legislative changes

Workplace legislation is always changing, creating added pressure for you to ensure your processes are compliant.

Flexible working

Now more than ever, you need to be able to work anywhere at any time, which simply can’t be achieved with traditional desktop-based solutions.

Complicated processes

Without the right training or software, managing key aspects such as payroll and bookkeeping can be unbelievably challenging, especially when you already have so much to do.

Your Needs

As your business evolves, you must be able to navigate the changes and challenges you’ll face.
The workplace is always changing and as a result, you need to be able to comply with new and updated legislation such as Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), Payroll year end, Making Tax Digital, employment law and the Coronavirus Job Support Scheme (CJSS).
From managing your books to delivering pension schemes, you’re constantly on the go. But by automating these processes, you can reduce the associated admin and save yourself time, enabling you to focus on running and growing your business.
People are at the heart of everything you do. By providing touch-free payslips, simple holiday-booking systems and a slick onboarding process, you can keep your staff happy, engaged and productive without adding to your workload.
