Octopaye is a solution born out of years of experience in recruitment, payroll management and human resources.

See below for our amazing testimonials from our client base on why they chose Octopaye.

After we was burnt by our previous payroll software provider, Octopaye came to the rescue and provided us a way to streamline our services. Everything is internal so no more does our team have to use multiple systems to do one job. Thank you Octopaye!

Clockwork Contracting

At MMC Contractor, we’ve recently taken the big decision to switch to Octopaye and I must say, we’re all asking ourselves why we didn’t look to change software sooner. A huge thanks to Rob Gillman and Simon Ballard for all of your support. You’ve been absolutely first class so far! We can’t wait to use the system to its full potential.

As well as being straightforward and easy to navigate the help button function is a fantastic option to utilise if you encounter any problems. The Snapshot system is another welcomed element, affording the ability to make any necessary adjustments. This combined with the very friendly and knowledgeable staff makes Octopaye the best payroll software around!

Initially, we paid £50k to our previous payroll provider for additional capabilities, which were not delivered. moreover, the payroll process was taking much longer than it should have. Octopaye came in and simplified the process, making payroll easy and straightforward for both our candidates and staff. This has saved us a significant amount of time, which we’ve used to improve our entire finance function. As a result, we can now provide better services to our clients and candidates.


We are working with Octopaye when a partner of ours had specific needs to show on the payslip. When speaking with Octopaye they knew exactly what was needed and how to put this in place. It was this unique solution that allowed us to continue with the partner but also eliminate a lot of manual work. It was delivered in a timely fashion and delivered exactly what was expected. The transition and training on a new system was done in an easily understandable manner.

Navigate People

Nearly two years ago Champion Contractors selected Octopaye to be our payroll software provider, and it is now considered be one of the best decisions we have made. Our initial concerns about the data transition process proved to be completely unfounded, because Octopaye provided comprehensive training to our staff, ensuring the whole exercise was seamless. Since then, we have developed an exceptional relationship with the Octopaye team and are very pleased to say they have lived up to their promises; regarding what their services could do for us and how they would support us.

As a result, Champion cannot recommend the services of Octopaye highly enough to any other company out there who is in the market for a friendly, professional, and technically excellent business partner.

It is their people and their company ethos that makes Octopaye stand out above the many other payroll SAAS providers in the industry. I couldn’t speak highly enough of their support team. Their ethos, that if recommended additional functionality is a good idea, they will create that functionality, and release it free to all users. Any conversations relating to additional functionality that shows a potential benefit for the software is met with a positive “I will see how we can do that”. Once the dust had settled from the implementation period, everyone within We Contract will tell you how much better, faster, slicker and user friendly the Octopaye software is.  Ultimately all payroll software has the same end goal with a varying degree of efficiency, usability, reliability, service and price, and if you are looking for one that brings it all together, Octopaye have done it incredibly well.

We Contract

Having used various payroll software throughout my career, working with Octopaye is truly a breath of fresh air.

Our payroll team has experienced an increase in productivity and our umbrella employees have provided fantastic feedback on the easy to use portal which gives them access to their records as well as our rewards package.

The Octopaye platform delivers everything we need as an Umbrella company to remain compliant whilst providing seamless payroll for our contractor base.

The relationship we have with the team is truly collaborative and the support is second to none. The fact that the team have specific sector knowledge means that we don’t have to explain any processes as they fully understand what we are looking to achieve.

It’s a great business to work with and we look forward to developing with Octopaye over the coming years.
