Frequently Asked Questions
The epayslips portal from SSLPost, integrates seamlessly to your existing payroll software to provide a secure portal in which to place employee PAYE documents such as payslips, P11Ds, P45s and P60s. There is an option to send a notification email or SMS to the employee requesting them to access the portal to view the information posted.
By entering their password into the relevant login area, the employee then has access to the document held within. A full history is maintained so if they have mislaid a payslip or require a PDF copy, this is available without requesting via their Finance Department.
The process is fully audited and reports are available to view and download; you are able monitor items that are sent, when they arrive and when they are viewed by the desired recipient.
Sending documents via traditional post can cost hundreds or thousands of pounds per year. Add to that the cost of stationery, printing and postage and the cost becomes prohibitive. With traditional mail and standard email, there is no way of accurately telling if the document has arrived safely with its recipient until a complaint is received. In addition, the document can be intercepted at any point on its journey.
The epayslip portal from SSLPost delivers the document directly to a secure portal. All the recipient needs to do is to complete a simple, one-off registration and set a password which will be used to access the portal in the future. The cost savings are immediately visible, the time savings enable you to use your resource more efficiently and the process underpins your green agenda.
The epayslips portal recipient requires an Internet browser and an email client.
The epayslips portal has been tested and approved for use with all major browsers.
Yes. SSLPost solutions have an ISO 27001 certificate, following an intensive 3rd party audit.
The epayslips portal uses a mix of block and transport encryption processes. Secure Socket Layers (SSL) are used with a 256-bit key to encrypt communication from the sender to our servers (most credit card transactions only use 128-bit encryption).
On our servers we encrypt using block encryption, which uses a combination of 256-bit symmetric and 2048-bit asymmetric processes. This is sent to the recipient over normal email (i.e. SMTP). Decrypted content is only made available over a 256-bit SSL secure link.
The technology is complex and that’s what makes it so effective. The user interface (what you and your recipients see), is easy to use and clear.
