Clean employee timesheets

Record accurate time and pay employees right

Perfect for tracking hourly work
Track hourly work with ease and automatically calculate pay and entitlements for part time, casual, contract or shift workers. Let staff record hours against different work and cost centres with online & mobile timesheets, or capture exact start and finish times with photo clock in/out or GPS location tracking.

Seamlessly manage paid and unpaid breaks
Employees can record breaks on the PayHero time clock app, and PayHero will automatically figure out if the break should be a paid 10-minute rest break or an unpaid 30-minute meal break. Minimise the burden on managers and allow employees to document their breaks themselves.

Sync with Droppah rostering
Take your rostering to the next level with Droppah. Use AI auto-scheduling or create a roster that takes skills, availability, shift preferences, wage costs, and other requirements into account. Achieve automated and highly optimised rosters in no time.

Everyone is excited about the move to PayHero, with overwhelmingly positive feedback across the brewery. You’ve got a fantastic product there.

Stress-free payroll

Payroll software built to make the complex simple

Easily manage multiple stores
Manage time, leave and payroll for different locations with PayHero Teams. Assign staff members to one or more stores and give local managers access to manage leave approvals and timesheets at their site. Track your wage costs with Xero tracking category integration.

Employee self-service
Save time and hassle by letting your staff view leave balances and request leave from the employee app. They can access their old payslips too, so you don’t need to dig them out.

Calculate public holidays automatically
No more painstaking public holiday calculations or costly errors! Save on paperwork and manual processing by using timesheet history to automatically calculate holiday entitlements for variable hour employees.

Sync timesheets from mobile directly to payroll

Recently an accounting firm was pitching me for business. They told me they could do my payroll in just two hours a week. I told them it only takes me 10 minutes.

Payroll software compliance for Hospitality

Simplify compliance

Focus on your customers & staff and let us take care of the tricky stuff

Automated payday filing
Payday filing is a piece of cake in PayHero – just connect your account to myIR and we’ll automatically send your payroll information through after every pay.

Stay onside with the Holidays Act
Hospo is a hotbed of potentially tricky payroll scenarios with part time and variable hour staff and regularly changing work patterns. PayHero follows the latest MBIE Holidays Act guidance to ensure your employees maintain the correct holiday entitlements, even when things change.

Integrate with Xero
Automatically send payroll data through to Xero. Keep it simple or assign wage costs to different account codes and tracking categories for a more detailed breakdown.

The only software on the market currently able to accurately calculate the leave entitlements for employees with irregular working patterns, without manual intervention, is PayHero.

All the tools you need to run your hospo business better


It all adds up

No more rounding to the nearest 15 minutes or having a drink while still on the clock. With the time clock, on average our hospo customers save 8 minutes per employee per shift – or over $640 a year for each full time employee earning minimum wage.


Insight into finances and staffing

Track your wage costs across departments, ensuring you never go over budget. Compare staff costs with your revenue to ensure you have the right number of staff rostered on at busy and quiet periods.


Easy set up

Grab an iPad or Android tablet, sign in to the photo time clock app and you’re ready to go. No huge setup costs or annual maintenance fees like with fingerprint scanners or card-based systems.


Works the way your business does

Easily set up different departments – such as bar, kitchen, front of house – for clocking in and reporting on costs.


Free support

Our friendly Wellington-based support team is available by phone or email to help you out whenever you need it.


Try before you buy

With a fully featured free 14 day trial, you can take PayHero for a risk-free test run before committing.

Thanks to the photo time clock, the amount we’re saving on wages more than pays for our monthly bill. It’s a no-brainer for us.
