Recruitment Agency Payroll Software with Sage at its Heart

Our expert developers have built specialised features onto the standard Sage package with Recruitment Agencies in mind. 

This approach can help agencies process payroll with two different hourly and charge rates. It means that you can look after your workers in a compliant, cost-effective way whilst being able to invoice their clients all within the same piece of payroll software.
We have had the pleasure now of working with Forest for over 3 years and we can’t fault the Forest software; extremely user friendly with updates and improvements frequently being made to make the software that much better each time. If there ever are any problems, the support service is fantastic both during the working day or out of hours. 100% confidence in both the knowledge and expertise of the Forest team, along with the software… Would certainly recommend.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are there any hidden costs with your software?

The pricing matrix is mentioned above, the only additional pricing would be the installation cost which is a one-off fee. You will need to purchase Sage separately to ourselves and also the textmarketer bundle but this is only if you want to send text messages to your workers.

Are you able to retain holiday for workers?

Yes, you can retain holiday pay.

Are you able to provide a portal for workers to upload their own details?

We are working on a branded portal for agencies to use where workers are able to add their own start up details. We are also looking at adding the ability to email out Contracts for signing (via Zoho sign) through the software. If this is something you would be interested in then please let us know although please do note there will be an additional charge for these features.

Can we password protect payslip emails?

We are able to password protect the pdf payslip within the emails using information held within the Forest software.
