Effective employee scheduling

Roster the right staff at the right time

Start shifts with a selfie
Get your staff to clock in and out and record breaks with our photo time clock app. It's easy and fun for employees to use, increases your payroll accuracy and saves hours of admin time.

Automatic timesheets
Clock in and outs automatically update timesheets in your payroll. No more collecting paper timesheets, checking the hours have been added up correctly and typing them into your payroll system.

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.

The photo time clock creates a sense of fairness by accurately recording hours, so both the staff and the owner know they’re not being taken advantage of.

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

Payroll software compliance for Manufacturing

Simplify compliance

Focus on your 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
Manufacturing is a hot bed of potentially tricky payroll scenarios with part time and variable hour staff and regularly changing work patterns. PayHero follows the latest MBIE Holidays Act guidelines 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.

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.
