Payroll software integration, what can it do for your business? (3 tips)

It’s been a busy month for your business – you’re tired and about to head home for a well-deserved break, until you realise you forgot to upload your payroll journals to your accounting software. You open up the computer and get to work. Once the payroll run is done, you have to then open both applications and look back and forth at each one to manually copy over the data. Copying data over and back can often lead to mistakes in your payroll data. This can sometimes feel tedious and frustrating – considering you’ve already entered them into your payroll software – why do you have manually enter them again? Luckily, there is now a way for your payroll software and accounting software to communicate with each other, allowing for the smooth transfer of payroll data.

With Surf Accounts’ integration with BrightPay, you no longer need to enter payroll data twice or export payroll journals to upload them to your accounting software – BrightPay sends them straight to Surf Accounts from within the payroll software. This completely automates and streamlines an entire chunk of the payroll workflow for you, saving you time and energy.

Here are the three main ways that integrating your accounting software to your payroll software can enhance the overall running of your business.

1. Gives you more time to spend on more important business matters

Here at Surf, we’re constantly finding new and innovative solutions to streamline and automate your day-to-day accounting processes. This integration with BrightPay, essentially brings two systems together, eliminating the repetitive task of manually copying the data from one system to the other, making your life easier. This integration also reduces the admin work involved in payroll, so you can spend less time processing your payroll, and more time working on expanding your business.

2. Eliminates costly errors

When you manually copy figures from your payroll software to your accounting software, this leaves a lot of room for errors to occur. From input errors to duplicates of the same data, these errors can distort figures and take a long time to identify and rectify.

3. Streamlines your efficiency

This integration simplifies and streamlines your payroll processing, which has a ripple effect for your business by increasing its overall efficiency. All you have to do is log into Surf Accounts within BrightPay, select a date range, enter your nominal ledger mapping details and then send the payroll journal over to Surf Accounts. Sending payroll journals to your accounting software has never been so seamless.

In our upcoming webinar on the 21st of September, we discuss in-depth how you can streamline your payroll and accounting processes with this integration. You’ll also learn how to integrate Surf Accounts with BrightPay, and how it can help you save time, reduce errors, and create cost efficiencies.
