Rated5out of5

There were several reasons I switched to Deputy, but the key one was the integration with Xero. I haven't been disappointed as it has saved me at least 30 minutes per pay run which is a lot for a busy business person. It did take a few goes to set up correctly, but I now have the time sheets and pay cycle running very smoothly.

DEPUTY has been a life changer for me. The added bonus of being able to export directly into XERO is such a time saver. My only small, tiny criticism is that once I've scheduled and published I have to keep my fingers crossed that the team show up !!
Your support team is excellent. Thank you for making my life easier !!
