Joined up payment processing - at last!

We have been using Modulr for payroll for some time - and having recently transitioned to Brightpay are loving that Modulr works seamlessly there. Given we already have Modulr in place for payroll clients - we were keen to try the Xero functionality too. Amazing. The platform is easy to use, the support is excellent and it just feels seamless. We will be rolling out to as many clients as we are able.

Seamless integration with Xero and Brightpay and would highly recommend to both Accountants or as sole use for internal finance department.
