The windows and mac versions of the software differ in a few areas which is a real shame. It looks like this may be addressed soon though!

This software covers all aspects of payroll including the new pension auto enrolment, expenses and benefits, sickness, maternity all subjects in one easy to use product.
I am not a computer buff but this works for me and I can understand it very easily.
The price is amazing we have several companies under one umbrella and usually this would cost a great deal more.
I like the help from BrightPay which can be found on their website and I have emailed for assistance and this has been a clear quick response both times.
I haven't found anything that I am not happy about as yet - I did call once over an Irish bank holiday and spoke to a chap I found difficult to understand because of his beautiful soft Irish accent ...
I transferred from a different software so it was learning all over again but apart from one or two errors on my side its been so simple to run, I wanted a product which worked alongside NEST which this does seemlessly, I have been using it since last April so 6 months and still know it offers options which I have not yet put into play - like expenses and benefits cars etc. I love that I can print the payslips onto standard A4 paper or I can email them directly, so much yet to use. Would highly recommend for the price I do not think there is another product out there that has this level of use.

Easy to use and navigate the interfaces. Gets the job done.
Not as robust as ADP or Paychex or even some of the newer apps that have popped up.

I had been a Sage 50 Payroll customer for around 20 years but found it getting ever more expensive and difficult to get in touch with customer care when you needed them with lengthy waits on hold. I needed to renew my Sagecover and they wanted to put me onto a monthly subscription, the amount they wanted just did not represent good value for money to me so I started to look at other options which was a big decision after using the same software for so long and having to learn another product from scratch . I trialed Moneysoft which also gets good reviews but I didn't really like the very old fashioned 1980's looking interface very much although it did the job. Then I tried Brightpay and was immediately impressed, it covers all the features I need including RTI and Auto Enrollment at a fraction of the price of Sage for the amount of employees I have. Moving data from Sage and setting things up took a little bit of time but this was mostly double checking everything was correct. The user interface is great and I find it easy to use, it's not quite so in depth as Sage so maybe misses a few features but this makes it less cluttered and easy to learn and operate. Also there's no need for dedicated stationery everything can be produced on plain paper which is another cost saving. I had a couple of initial queries and customer care answered these promptly. I would highly recommend this product, it's fantastic value for money.
Nice modern user interface.
Easy to learn and operate.
Covers RTI and Auto Enrollment.
No need for dedicated stationery.
Excellent value for money.
Fixed yearly fee includes all legislation and feature updates and support.
Would be nice to be able to attach documents to employee records i.e. contract of employment, disciplinary letters, etc.

Using BrightPay has made running payrolls much easier.
This software makes running a payroll easy. The interface is very user-friendly and inputting pay figures is a cinch. The software takes the legwork out of running regular payrolls by rolling over figures month-to-month and providing variance indicators
Setting up employer mid-year can be a little challenging until you understand how to input all the relevant information.
