As we enter December and the year draws to a close, we’d once again like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty. Despite the challenges of COVID-19 and its impact on the economy, SimplePay has had another successful year and we are incredibly grateful to you, our customers, for this.
As always, SimplePay is committed to giving you the best possible payroll experience by offering a high value product coupled with exceptional customer support. To ensure that we’re able to maintain these high standards, there will be an annual inflation-linked price adjustment of 5% effective 1 January 2022. Our pricing page will be updated by the end of the week to reflect these changes.
The price adjustment for this year (which was due on 1 January 2021) was deferred for as long as possible and we hope that this relief made a difference in the economic hardships that many of our customers have been facing.
Looking back on 2021, we managed to develop some great new features to help simplify payroll and make it more efficient. You can now:
- Pro-rate custom items
- Create custom beneficiaries and pay all beneficiaries using an EFT export file
- Assign leave policies in bulk and capture leave in bulk
- Add users with read-only access
- Export payslips in a ZIP file
- Override the approval of outstanding self-service requests
- Add employees with a 4 week pay frequency
In addition to these great features, we also introduced live webinars as an alternative platform for learning about the system and payroll legislation.
This year we expanded our team with new legal analysts to ensure that we continue to keep the system up to date with legislation, additional support specialists to ensure that you get speedy resolutions to your queries and more developers to ensure that the system is running smoothly.
These are just some of the great wins for our team in 2021. SimplePay values you as a customer and we look forward to adding even more value to your payroll experience in 2022.
Have a joyful and safe holiday season.
