Keypay's fully costed employee schedules and the easy to setup and use awards engine helps business's keep labour cost under control as well as remaining compliant with Modern Awards. The payroll is full functioned and easy to use. It has the ability to be a little more granular on payroll access which also handy.

I have been using KeyPay for a client in the restaurant industry since June this year and have found it very easy to use. This type of industry requires employers to be up to date with award rates and KeyPay offers this with being fully compliant with the Modern Awards and any changes made to the awards are automatically updated in KeyPay which gives confidence that the employer will always be paying their employees the most current award.
The support team at KeyPay is second to none for customer service and promptness to any queries. The KeyPay help section has also been very helpful with easy to follow step by step instructions on any tasks that I've needed assistance with. Overall this is a brilliant program that covers all aspects of payroll management.

The "pay conditions engine" is fantastic and enables our clients to keep compliant with Fair Work Australia

Keypay is incredibly user friendly and the support staff is great. It is an Australian based company that I would highly recommend. I personally like the ease of use and the employee online platform. Improvements come through all the time, they have just created a set and forget product.


KeyPay is incredibly flexible. We are a Community Health Service and employ staff from many different awards and KeyPay can handle this with ease. It also manages our Salary Packaging Requirements and links this all to Xero for us. They staff at KeyPay would have to be the most patient and helpful that I have come across. They are very prompt with their replies and always follow up on anything that is needed. They are also prepared to take requests for any changes suggested. This is a fantastic system that I cant recommend enough for anyone looking for a payroll system.
