Pento was easy to set up and start running for our UK employees. Could never go back to our previous set up with outsourced payroll provider.

Pros

We always thought of payroll as something boring and annoying. Now it’s just a few clicks every month and that’s it.

Cons

Not much, every time we have a small issue Pento support is there and addresses it very fast.

Response from Pento

Thank you for the kind review. We'll keep improving Pento for you.

Payroll has never been so easy

It's crazy how much time Pento has saved us in processing and reviewing payroll. We love being able to keep our payroll in house for 250+ employees without having to have a dedicated payroll clerk. We can have payroll processed and reviewed in less than a day of one of our teams time!

Pros

- Slick interface;
- Smooth implementation and transition from Xero Payroll;
- Best in class support for both product issues and technical payroll queries (quick response and resolution);
- Easy to use (month to month payroll adjustments have never been so easy to amend);
- Automated recurring adjustments for most common adjustments and functionality to create custom;
- Integrates with Xero and automatically generates the monthly payroll journal; and
- Pension & HMRC integrations (massively reducing admin time).

Cons

We've sometimes had issues with bulk uploading adjustments, which meant having to manually adjust payroll balances for all employees for items such as annual wellness bonuses but this is a rarity and only a minor point.

Alternatives Considered

Payfit

Reasons for Choosing Pento

Max 100 employees with Xero payroll at the time, and needed a product fit for scale.

Switched From

Xero

Reasons for Switching to Pento

Had heard from other finance professionals who were or had used Payfit in the past that they didn't fully trust the software due to product issues, which is essential when it comes to payroll.

It is a simple system that would work fantastically if you had everyone on salaries with no extras and not too many changes

Pros

Pento integrates with bamboo hr which makes things a lot easier. It is also fairly self explanatory what is where. It is good that employees get email payslips

Cons

Sometimes the pensions integration is dodgy or there are bugs that we spot in auditing and have to ask pento to fix

Super easy to use payroll software

Reviewed on 06/02/2024

Pros

Very easy to keep payroll inhouse rather than paying externally for someone to run it. The Help Centre is very comprehensive but the best thing is definitely how quickly the support team come back with information. Very intuitive set up with user friendly dashboards and ways to add one off monthly changes to payroll. Great links to accounting software (have used it with both Xero and Netsuite) and easy to link to BambooHR. This is the software in my accounting tech stack that I can rely on the most.

Cons

Very little is a con. Perhaps to be nitpicky it would be any custom additions or deductions sometimes not having the full text come through as the header column in reports. This is incredibly minor and only adding as this is a compulsory field!
