What is Thesaurus Cloud?

Thesaurus Cloud is an add-on to Thesaurus Payroll Manager that introduces powerful new features.

Thesaurus Cloud is not a "cloud version" of Thesaurus Payroll Manager – it does not allow you to completely manage or run your payroll online. Rather, Thesaurus Cloud provides a way to connect your payroll data to the cloud to enable new features.

Firstly, Thesaurus Cloud provides a secure and user-friendly way to backup and restore your payroll data on your PC to and from the cloud.

Secondly, Thesaurus Cloud provides a web/mobile based self service dashboard for employees and employers to log in and access their payroll data.

There's a lot to it, all of which makes Thesaurus Cloud an essential tool for keeping your payroll data safe and streamlining employee communications.

Secure Cloud Backup

Never lose your payroll data again.

With Thesaurus Cloud, you can safely and securely backup your payroll data to the cloud.

Thesaurus Cloud maintains a chronological history of your backups. You can restore or download any of the backups to your PC at any time.

You can restore a backup onto your existing PC (e.g. to roll back your employer data file to a previous version), or you can simply download a backup onto a new computer (e.g. to get up and running right where you left off).

Employee Self Service

Give your employees easy access to their payroll documents and data.

When you have connected your employer file to Thesaurus Cloud, you will be able to invite your employees to access Self Service, allowing them to:

  • Browse and download their history of payslips and other payroll documents.
  • View their payroll calendar.
  • Request annual leave.
  • View the personal details you currently hold for them.

Employees can access Self Service from any computer (PC or Mac), tablet (e.g. iPad), or smartphone (e.g. iPhone, Android).

Employer Dashboard for Bureau Clients

Save time, reduce admin, and effortlessly collect the payroll info you need.

Using Thesaurus Cloud, you can not only give the employees of your clients access to Self Service, but you can also give your clients access to their own employer dashboard, allowing them to:

  • Access the data for each of their employees.
  • View the employer-wide payroll calendar.

Multiple Users

For employers using Thesaurus Cloud

Whether it's your accountant, boss, colleague, departmental heads, or anyone else who may need to view the payroll data for your company, use Thesaurus Cloud to grant them access to the employer dashboard and let them get what they need.

For bureaus using Thesaurus Cloud

Grant access to the client dashboard for as many users as required for each of your payroll customers. Or share administrative access to all clients with your colleagues.

Safe and Reliable

Our number one priority is security.

All communication between Thesaurus Payroll Manager on your PC and the Thesaurus Cloud servers is carried out on a safe channel with maximum security.

As you or your employees browse the online dashboards, we use various methods to protect against things like data injection, authentication hacking, cross site scripting, exposure flaws, request forgery, and the many other types of vulnerabilities.

Thesaurus Cloud is powered using the latest web technologies and hosted on Microsoft Azure for ultimate performance, reliability and scalability.
