Super Processing

Streamlined and accurate payroll

Microkeeper is the answer to countless moments of frustration wondering why it's so hard to process payroll fast and accurately.

Our software uses precisely registered timesheet data, collected with enterprise-level time and attendance tools, to automate payroll calculations. That means all wages, allowances, penalty rates, loading, overtime and time off gets calculated within a matter of minutes.

Even for large businesses with complex structures and pay rules.

  • All calculations are done automatically, based on your personalised preset shift rules
  • Eliminate manual errors with payruns based on accurately tracked time and attendance data

Automatically apply award rules

Compliant payroll starts with effective implementation, which is why our software uses your specific payroll rules. 

We'll provide personalised setup and active parallel testing as we believe putting compliance solely in the hands of a system that might (or might not) correctly interpret complex awards and changes in payroll legislation is too big a risk.

Instead, our Accounts Specialists will work together with your trained payroll professionals during setup or whenever reviews are needed to ensure your specific rules, based on your industry's award or EBA's, will be applied. Once your rules are set, payroll can be automated with confidence, and processed in seconds.

  • Avoid errors leading to underpayment or overpayment
  • Set up and create complex rules based on modern awards or Enterprise Bargaining Agreements (EBA)

Once payroll is processed, you can mark a pay period as "locked" in Microkeeper, giving your employees instant access to their payslips online.

Payslips can be printed or accessed online. Employees have full access to all historical payslips in their personal employee self-service portal through the app or browser.

  • Give staff instant access to payslips within their ESS portal, there's no need to spend time printing or emailing
  • Make payroll eco-friendly, skip the printer and view payslips online
