Photo time clock & real-time staff attendance

Simple, accurate time tracking

Record exact clock in and out times for fast, error-free payroll

Start shifts with a selfie
Get your staff to clock in and out and record breaks with our photo time clock app. It's easy and fun for employees to use, increases your payroll accuracy and saves hours of admin time.

Automatic timesheets
Clock in and outs automatically update timesheets in your payroll. No more collecting paper timesheets, checking the hours have been added up correctly and typing them into your payroll system.

Real-time attendance
Monitor the day’s attendance & breaks in real-time. Keep a tab on who’s on the clock, taking a break, running late and working overtime.

The photo time clock creates a sense of fairness by accurately recording hours, so both the staff and the owner know they’re not being taken advantage of.

Stress-free payroll

Pay employees right with payroll software, built for businesses like yours

Automated public holiday calculations
PayHero determines whether a public holiday is an otherwise working day for an employee based on their recent work pattern and calculates their entitlements accordingly.

Employee self-service
Save time and hassle by letting your staff view leave balances and request leave from the employee app. They can access their old payslips too, so you don’t need to dig them out.

Integrate with Xero
Automatically send payroll data through to Xero. Keep it simple or assign wage costs to different account codes and tracking categories for a more detailed breakdown.

Recently an accounting firm was pitching me for business. They told me they could do my payroll in just two hours a week. I told them it only takes me 10 minutes.

Simplify compliance

Focus on your staff and let FlexiTime take care of the tricky stuff

Stay onside with the Holidays Act
Manufacturing is a hot bed of potentially tricky payroll scenarios with part time and variable hour staff and regularly changing work patterns. PayHero follows the latest MBIE Holidays Act guidelines to ensure your employees maintain the correct holiday entitlements, even when things change.

Seamlessly manage paid & unpaid breaks
When your staff record breaks on the time clock app, PayHero will automatically figure out if the break should be a paid 10-minute rest break or an unpaid 30-minute meal break in line with the latest legal requirements.

Automated payday filing
Payday filing is a piece of cake in PayHero – just connect your account to IRD and we’ll automatically send your payroll information through after every pay.
