Ensure data is always correct with real time tax and compliance updates, and employee data management. With no cap on employees, embrace cloud software that scales with your growing accounting firm.

Accounting platform integration

KeyPay’s integration with QuickBooks Online, Xero and NetSuite further streamlines your client payroll and expenses processes. By automating journal entries, KeyPay allows manual administration tasks to be completely eliminated. Removing the need for CSV or excel uploads and eliminating manual data entry means that you have more time to spend with your clients, on business strategy and/or compliance.

How much time do you spend manually interpreting and inputting timesheet data? Eliminate paper timesheets and manual excel imports with our employee self service app WorkZone, and employee portal. Employees can enter timesheet data for managers to approve, while you focus on the pay run.

Automated pay runs

KeyPay’s unique pay run automation removes all the mundane parts of payroll processing, freeing up time while keeping you firmly in charge. Configure pay runs to run in the background from start to finish and choose warnings that will stop the automation - on your terms - to maintain control and quality assurance. Set up and forget, run payrolls by exception and create time to grow your client base.

“We’ve saved so much manpower, time, and staff resources by moving over to KeyPay. A payroll that should have taken 15 minutes which might be a standard payroll could have ended up taking over an hour on previous systems. Now it takes no time.”
