Simply Payroll – Saving time for emplyers and employees

A payroll app for employees and managers. Employees can track their work and timesheet, ask for leave and reimbursements. Managers can overview timesheets, run the payroll, approve holidays and reimbursements.  


  • It’s tiresome work to keep up the worksheets for employees
  • Running payroll manually is a very risky business especially if employees get their paycheck based on the worked hours.
  • It’s a hassle for employees to do the paperwork for their payslips.
