Plug & Play, saves time and costs

Reviewed 2 years ago

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.

Vendor response

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

Big Time Saver

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pento is a great payroll product. Once it's up and running, it will save you a lot of time and headache. Definitely worth making the switch.

Pros

Once everything was up and running, I probably spend less than two minutes per month running payroll. UI is pretty intuitive and easy to navigate. When you have experience with other products, running payroll with one click feels like magic.

Cons

The setup took some time, as we needed to set up all employees and link the bank account. Be sure not to change in the last days of the month.

Pretty good

Reviewed 2 months ago

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

Finally - takes the pain out of payroll

Reviewed 2 years ago

So impressed with Pento. It is literally saving us days of painstaking work to run payroll each month. Would recommend it to every growing company.

Pros

So easy to use and run payroll. The best bit is that's it, all done. Our finance team can now easily manage the whole payroll process and it has actually become an enjoyable one. Before we were dealing with and always waiting for our external payroll company. Now we can simply do it all ourselves - Pento connects to HMRC, sends payments to employees and payslips. Also, support is always fast and awesome.

Cons

I can't think of anything bad to be honest. It really has revolutionized the way we run payroll for our company.

Vendor response

Thank you Victor for kind words, it means a lot! We promise to keep making Pento even better for you and your team.

Best payroll software out there

Reviewed 2 years ago

I've been using several of the competitors during the last couple of years and actually thought it was working OK. But when I first was introduced to Pento, I was very surprised! I never thought payroll software could be this quick, easy to use and understandable. I'm literally capable of running everything related to wages/salary in minutes.

Pros

Directly integrates with taxes, automatic bank payments, and also payslips get sent to our employees automatically. At this point I’m not even sure what else they could add to make it even better. Also, anytime we needed anything their support was very fast.

Cons

Nothing in particular. So far has everything been working flawless for me and my employees
