Paycircle Payroll

Paycircle is a simple payroll app that enables small and micro businesses to run their own payroll and manage their workplace pension. In a world of money-grabbing accountants and bookkeepers, Paycircle takes care of workplace pension auto enrolment for free. As well as the business managing their payroll, employees can also access their pay and pension information through their own portal.

Having already partnered with Paycircle to build their Tax Tracker app, we couldn't wait to get to work on their next product. Once again we teamed up with the guys at Studio Tangerine to bring the payroll UI to life with their fresh and colourful branding ideas, that in turn reflect the vibrant personality of Paycircle. Many payroll apps can be almost impossible to follow for the average small business owner and tend to have a very traditional and uninspiring feel to them.

Using feedback from existing Paycircle payroll clients, we spent the early months of the project working through hundreds of wireframes and prototypes to see if we could simplify payroll management and make the setup process incredibly simple. After testing many of these ideas with clients, we developed them into a clear and inviting interface with playful elements running throughout.

Inspiring business owners to take control of their own payroll were a huge part of this project so brand messaging and tone of voice have been critical in creating something simple, enjoyable, delightful and, most importantly, trustworthy.

We can't wait to see how Paycircle payroll disrupts things in its sector and shows small business owners that life doesn't have to be so complicated, just because HMRC say so! We love working with the team at Paycircle and look forward to the next projects in the pipeline.

The talent that you brought to the Paycircle project was exactly what we needed, we couldn't have launched without you. Thanks for the creativity, the hand-holding and the immense amount of patience you always showed when we changed our minds and jumped all over the place throughout the project. That Paycircle app is a great success and we are adding to it all the time.
