Instant pay results

This is how you roll

Maximising your visibility of results, payroll is calculated at the start of the period, negating period end calculations. Always aiming to make life easier for you, adjustments can be made at any time and the impact of changes can be viewed and acted upon immediately, increasing accuracy. Any breaking changes late to the party are much more easily accommodated, especially in large payrolls, as there is no requirement to re-run. We love payroll but we don't love unnecessary work (for you or us).

Payroll on time
Mobile Payroll

Mobile and always on

Employees can access payslip information securely on any device at any time. Our interactive payslips give employees additional insights, which help to reduce payroll queries by up to 75% - a real game-changer.

Optional extras for Payroll Software



A forward-thinking retailer, Costco started the search for a new payroll solution that would drive digital transformation without introducing complexities.

Costco pays its UK employees on a fortnightly pay cycle, previously reliant on an unsupported and outdated system that was never intended to manage payroll. They chose SD Worx’s SaaS payroll solution to drive digital transformation without introducing complexities. The cloud-based payroll solution was deployed in just a few months to effortlessly run the fortnightly pay cycle for thousands of employees.
