Would you like a simple way to send letters or e-mails to selected employees on matters of pay, create spreadsheets to show, for example, an individual's absences or set yourself reminders of upcoming payroll tasks? These are simply some of the opportunities opened up by the new seamless integration of Sage Payroll Professional with Microsoft Office programs including Word, Excel and Outlook.

Would it be a relief not to have to input data manually from software relating to employees' pay (such as time and attendance programs) which are incompatible with your payroll program? The new CSV function in Sage Payroll Professional allows you to transfer data in and out at the click of a mouse, saving you time and tedium.
