Frequently Asked Questions

What is cloud payroll?

Cloud payroll is a payroll solution that’s hosted and managed in the cloud, as opposed to being installed and run on a local computer or server. ‘The cloud’ is a term used to describe a network of remote servers that are hosted on the internet and used to store, manage and process data.

Does cloud payroll integrate with other systems?

PayCaptain’s cloud payroll software integrates with other business-critical systems including Bamboo HR, HiBob, Deputy, Rotaready, Birdie, factorial, BreatheHR and elementsuite. PayCaptain is also connected to major UK pension providers including - but not limited to - Nest, The People’s Pension, Smart Pension, Now:Pensions, Scottish Widows and Aviva. Our integrations mean our customers have a fully integrated best-in-class solution that seamlessly passes data between systems.

How long does it take to implement UK cloud payroll software?

We recommend two months to move between payroll companies, although it can be done quicker if required. Your new payroll company needs all employee personal and salary information, payroll year-to-date information and year-to-date pension data to upload in the payroll software solution. We recommend running parallel pay runs on the legacy and new payroll software solutions to check all historical data has uploaded correctly and that payroll is 100% accurate.

How is payroll data kept secure?

At PayCaptain, payroll data is kept secure on UK-based servers using ISO27001, an information security management system that’s the international standard framework for security and data privacy. ISO27001 is a voluntary standard and payroll companies who hold this certification demonstrate their commitment to the highest levels of data security. ISO27001-certified cloud payroll companies have robust operating procedures and security controls in place, as well as internal auditing and business continuity plans to ensure compliance with this rigorous security standard.

What are the benefits of online payroll software?

Online payroll software offers several benefits for businesses in managing their payroll processes efficiently. Some key benefits include employee self-service; scalability for when businesses grow; accessibility and convenience; enhanced security; time and money-saving and integration with other business-critical systems, to name a few.
