About Microkeeper

Microkeeper is a web-based human resource (HR) management software that is designed for Australian businesses in retail, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, and other industries. It helps organizations handle rostering, timesheet generation, and payroll management, among other administrative operations on a centralized platform.

Microkeeper's staff scheduling functionality allows team leaders to utilize pre-designed rostering templates to manage staff availability across multiple departments and locations. The payroll module lets HR professionals automatically calculate payroll based on pre-set shift rules and avoid underpayment or overpayment errors, whilst maintaining compliance with Single Touch Payroll (STP) guidelines. With the core HR tools, supervisors can create job contracts, send offer letters, manage employee onboarding, track licenses, and monitor staff leave requests. It also provides fingerprint or facial recognition based biometrics and geofencing technology to avoid buddy punching and track employee time and location across field staff.

Microkeeper offers an API, which allows businesses to integrate the platform with several third party solutions, including Xero. The self-service portal lets employees handle personal data, access historical payslips, and update bank account details.

Love, Love, Love Microkeeper

Reviewed on 19/10/2020

Fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Fantastic. Would highly recommend.

Pros

The Microkeeper payroll system is extremely user friendly, with all the functionality I require to run a payroll for 3 different venues, all with split shifts, cost centres etc. Support calls are always answered promptly (I rarely have to leave a message), and the staff are always super helpful and able to solve the problem - which is usually me not quite knowing how to do something slightly more complicated. The ability for staff to access payslips & update their details makes payroll easier from an administrative point of view.

Cons

Would like some better costing alternatives via my departments, when I need to split it out into time slots - breakfast, lunch & dinner.

Plenty of room for improvement

Reviewed on 06/11/2020

Pros

When is working properly it is far more efficient than using a spreadsheet. The calculations and systems seem accurate and relative robust. Support are always quick to respond, albeit dismissive and not particularly helpful.

Cons

There are many short comings with the software and the organisation is slow remedy them (if at all), the most noteable of which are as follows:
1) Employee Payslip disclose information (pertaining to taxable income) in a way that is factually wrong and cannot be corrected (or simplified).
2) Reports are hard to read and often do not contain all information necessary to properly understand them.
3) Data integrations with software platforms like Xero and MYOB are prone to error and no process to safeguard/identify errors. Additional shortcoming means this issue recurs each time a correction or change is required.
I understand that the software is in development, but as a user (facing the above challenges) this provides little consolation.

Response from Microkeeper

Hi Alfred,

I appreciate that you're taking the time to leave a review and am glad you're indicating the overall quality and value for money we offer means we're doing some things right.

I also appreciate some of your feedback regarding the reports and robustness of data integration. This helps us to focus our future development on areas users identify as having room for improvement. As a sidenote, Microkeeper is not "in development" as such, but we do continually add updates and features.

Your feedback regarding the payslips however is wrong. I can assure you these are built to the standards of the Australian Taxation Office. As a software provider, we work closely with a specialised department within the ATO, and we have an excellent working relationship with them.

I'm also sorry to hear you experience your customer service through our reseller channel as dismissive and unhelpful. We take this feedback seriously and we'll follow this up with your point of contact.

Pros

Easy to set up and really helps with tax time.

Cons

When you have an error with Single Touch Payroll, it's very difficult to send the ato updated information, the system had to send a revised duplicate.

Xero was too expensive and limited functionality for low plans.
