I work for a Woking-based company, STG Fabrications, which specialises in architectural steel fabrications. Our clients tend to be blue chip companies, and we provide them with all manner of structures, ranging from high end architectural staircases and glass balustrades to sheet metalwork and plant room walkways.
In my role of Office Manager, I take care of the payroll and pensions. I’m a bit of a technophobe if I’m being honest but just about managed to find my way around Sage. Saying that, I was never really smitten by it.
For starters, it cost us nearly £900 a year, plus the additional costs (and hassle!) of printing payslips. Nothing was particularly integrated with Sage, either, which made the payroll process slow and painful. In the digital age, it felt all rather analogue.
And then I stumbled upon Paycircle, which offered a simple solution to all our payroll woes. With it, we can now complete our payroll in no time whatsoever and it’s soooo much more user-friendly and intuitive. Oh, and it costs just a pound per employee per month!
When it came to choosing a workplace pension provider, Paycircle’s Easy Enrol service was the obvious choice. I’d always thought getting ‘auto-enrolled’ would be a time-consuming and hellishly expensive nightmare, but Easy Enrol made the whole process unbelievably easy. We’re now all set up and wondering what all the fuss was about.
All in all, with Paycircle, we genuinely feel in control of our payroll and company pension, and in today’s fast-moving business world, that really does count for a lot.
