PayHero, built by FlexiTime, makes payday super easy with automatic calculation of employee pay and holidays from online timesheets and work patterns. Your clients can be confident they’re complying with the Holidays Act because PayHero stores leave balances in Weeks and reviews employees’ recent work patterns when evaluating leave.

Better yet, the key elements that feed into payroll are all included - online and mobile employee timesheets; leave management; zero touch payday filing; expense claims and reimbursements; and deep integration with Xero so you can easily assign payroll costs to the general ledger and tracking categories. 

“PayHero has been amazing for my manufacturing client – the time clock helped us save money due to accurately recording the hours employees actually worked. The Documents and Notes section has proved to be very valuable as now all HR docs are stored with the payroll information. My clients love it as it's really simple to use and looks great.”

- Haylee Wrenn, Accountabill

Help reduce your clients' payroll-related stress. Find out more about the PayHero partner program for bookkeepers or contact Jacinta to arrange a demo.

My Timesheets by TimeHub

We have been helping employers like your clients improve the way they manage payroll and answering the age-old question: Who Worked When? for over 25 years (we formerly owned Comacc Payroll, now MYOB Exo, before selling to MYOB). The number one issue we have seen during this time is employers struggling to capture and process their employee time data accurately and in a timely manner. 

Solving this problem is the key to cost-effective management of payroll and job costing.

That's why we created MyTimesheets - our "Realtime", online, digital timeclock and timesheet tool.

MyTimesheets is a simple, mobile optimised, digital tool that allows employees to clock in/out or record and submit their timesheets, in Real-Time, including tracking hours, allowances, leave and the jobs they have worked on. Then once approved, have the data feed to any payroll system or job costing system. By reducing or even eliminating Timesheet Creep, MyTimesheets will save your clients money every month.
