About Us

Merit software is a leading supplier of payroll and invoicing solutions for Temp Recruitment Agencies. We provide scalable software to suit all recruitment agencies from multi-branch corporates to new-starts. Merit software is used by recruitment agencies throughout the UK and Ireland, and is the software of choice for forward thinking companies looking for reliable payroll and invoicing systems.

Established in 1997, following a management buyout of the Merit Payroll business, the company has grown from strength to strength establishing a strong and wide client base including many of the major players within the recruitment agency industry. We are able to offer top class project management and administration, quality development teams and a support department that is knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. We run training courses from our own training centre and offer a mobile training team for on-site visits.

Over the last few years we have developed our suite of products, providing payroll and invoicing solutions at the forefront of the recruitment industry. In addition to our core software we provide innovative scanning, e-payslip and on-line timesheet solutions. Merit Software is an Approved Service Provider for The Employment Agents Movement (TEAM).

Why choose Merit for your recruitment payroll and invoicing software solution?


At Merit Software we have built a talented and committed team, who understand the recruitment agency business. Our experienced consultants have a long track record with us and within the industry as a whole.

Our advisors will be able to clearly identify your needs and can often use their experience to advise you of best practice within the industry and possible solutions to any problems you may have. Merit has operated within the industry for the last 20 years and the software under this brand name is tried and tested within the recruitment agency sector.


Suitable for all recruitment agencies from large corporate organisations to small start-up agencies, the beauty of Merit software is that it will meet your company's needs as your business grows and prospers.

Within the Merit software range it's straight-forward to add additional offices or branches, set up new divisions and even to add additional companies to your group. As your payroll expands, so can Merit software.


Merit software is designed to neatly integrate with your existing systems. We have established links with a large number of front office and accountancy software packages. Data entered into other software packages need not be re-keyed, making efficient use of time and preventing unnecessary errors.

At Merit we understand that companies don't all use the same processes, so Merit will be configured to work the way you work. Each installation of Merit comes with full consultancy ensuring that we set the system up to meet your specific requirements. As your company grows and your requirements change Merit can be adapted, additional modules utilised and integrations with other systems can be added.


Our software and services are sensibly priced in the recruitment agency marketplace. Our software product prices are based on the numbers of concurrent users and the complexity of your particular installation.

If your set up is straight-forward you won't bear the same cost as other more involved installations. Additional users can easily be added at a later date, as well as additional modules, training, consultancy or customisation as you require. Our support packages include any additional payroll and invoicing legislative upgrades, so you can be assured there will be no unexpected bills.
