    If you use accounting software then you already know how great they are. You enter less data, track fewer receipts and spend less time dealing with cumbersome and human-error prone processes. With accounting software you can record the flow of your company's money and examine your financial condition whilst recording transactions, generating reports, creating purchase orders etc. etc. etc. Any accounting software is bound to make your life easier and save you a ton of time which leaves you more time to focus on your business.

    But what about the payroll part of your business? This is just as important and can be as prone to human error and time sinking! However, although some accounting packages have a built-in payroll module, the payroll aspect is not their focus, leaving the functionality lacking in more than the basic processing capabilities.

    On the other hand, payroll software does exist which will automate all of the confusing and time-consuming payroll tasks for you also. Gee, if only there was some way that you could take all of the great benefits of payroll software and merge it into your accounting software...

    Well, today is your lucky day because this absolute dream is already a reality and it’s called BrightPay. BrightPay is a dedicated payroll software that includes direct API integration with loads of the leading accounting packages such as Sage, QuickBooks and Xero to name but a few. Whereas all these companies are brilliant accounting packages, BrightPay’s core focus is payroll so they are more responsive, unlike accounting software where payroll is only a small part of it. BrightPay still talks to the accounting software, making it literally the best of both worlds.

    So how does it work? BrightPay’s payroll journal feature allows users to create wage journals from finalised pay periods so that they can be added into various accounting packages. With this direct integration, you can send the payroll journal to the accounting package from within BrightPay. This accounting software integration eliminates the need to export a CSV file from a separate payroll software and import it into the accounting system.

    By switching to an integrated system like BrightPay you only need to provide the information once and your payroll and accounting software will talk to each other and do the rest like a couple of pals who haven’t seen each other in months. It really is a win-win situation, getting, wait for it, the best of both worlds! Head on over to BrightPay now and have a look. Go on, you deserve it!
