Smart automation that reduces your workload and your headspace

Our smart automations cut down the things you have to do, and things you have to remember. We'll automatically make payments to your employees, IRD, Kiwisaver + more. Plus, our customisable task lists will make sure everyone gets the reminders they need to never miss an important task or deadline.

The Smartly product is kept up to date with NZ legislation, including the Holidays Act. When legislative changes to things like the minimum wage, or tax brackets are announced by the Government, the Smartly product is updated to meet the new legislation.

Say goodbye to wrestling with software built for big international corporations – Smartly is made in New Zealand, specifically for Kiwi SMEs. We've put in a bunch of great time-saving features you'll love – and left out all the confusing and complex stuff you don't need.
