Patriot Payroll Software


 

For small businesses looking for a human resources (HR) and payroll solution, Patriot Payroll from Patriot Software, Inc helps streamline all processes associated with keeping payroll, and can help calculate payroll tax, print checks, establish direct deposit and more.

While Patriot Payroll is Patriot Software’s primary payroll offering, the system can also integrate with their other modules, such as Patriot TIME (time and attendance) and Patriot HR (personnel tracking).

The system was primarily developed for small businesses with 1-50 employees from multiple types of industries, including distribution, retail, engineering, maintenance/field service and more, and is designed so that businesses will only pay for the modules they use.

With Patriot Payroll, implementation and support is always free. As a cloud-based system, Patriot Payroll allows employers to run payroll whenever and wherever they’d like.

For businesses that need the ability to fully customize their payroll, Patriot Payroll offers the ability to issue payroll through any combination of direct deposit, issuing checks and more. Through the Employee Portal, employees can always have access to their payroll and pay stub information. Year-end reports can be generated, and employers can print W-2 forms whenever needed.

I've tried several other options over the years and have not found a better option than Patriot Software...even with much more expensive services. And for those rare times when I can't figure something out on my own, their customer service is fabulous. They are quick and responsive.

Pros

Ease of use, low cost, package deal. I love the HR module as I can handle all my HR tasks in one location and store all my employee documents right there online. No more files to keep track of and keep up to date and no more worrying about confidentiality.

Cons

The only downside I have found is that the accounting module doesn't handle multiple sales taxes as well as I would like such as being able to create different tax groups and/or apply different rates to the same product/invoice.

Advice to Others

Try it out!

Patriot software offers affordable and very functional accounting and payroll options for small business owners. This is the direction I am urging my small business owners to explore for their needs outside of the services I offer. The customer service is exceptional, too... very important in my opinion.

I can't understand why it's so difficult to pay employees and why it cost so much to write a check. I've been looking for an easy solution that was affordable for our small business. I finally found Patriot Payroll. The startup was relatively easy and their staff was friendly and helpful. So far I'm very happy with the program.

Pros

easy start up, helpful staff, taxes paid for you, easy system to navigate and understand,

Cons

You have to pay to pay people.

Overall, the product is a good product. It does what I need it to do with the exception of some local tax issues. I have resigned myself to the fact that I will always have to manipulate the local tax codes when I pay the taxes. And as long as we are a small company, that is not a problem.
Then the W2's..........I was late filing them because your company had to fix the W2's and then the file to upload. What a nightmare! Then, it seems that not all of the info for PA taxes was listed. I think that it is still missing PA SUI. But no one has complained so I will wait it out and see who catches it.

As long as everything runs smooth, I like it.

Pros

It is easy to use. The representative and some of the other support staff are great and try to resolve issues quickly.

Cons

Pa Local tax & codes

Advice to Others

If you are from PA, always check the local tax & codes. Check W2's early.

If you're looking for a simple payroll software that gets right to the point and handles all the tax/filing portions of payroll, then this is the software for you. Need not look further. If I could learn it, so can you!

Pros

Customer service will almost literally take you by the hand and walk you through everything you need to know. They are that dedicated, and once you get the hang of it, the rest is an easy ride.

Cons

Their accounting software and other aspects of the service leave a lot to be desired, unfortunately, when compared to other more popular accounting services.

Advice to Others

Definitely, try before you by! You won't regret it!!

The setup part was very simple.
It gives a lot of flexibility in making changes.
Works perfectly for most of my client.
The price is very friendly as well. I hope there would be a smart phone app that comes with this product, which will be even better.
The calculation was fairly accurate enough.

Thank you for the terrific review of Patriot Software. While we don't have a smartphone app, our software is mobile friendly. You can add a shortcut from your browser by typing login.patriotsoftware.com and then clicking "Add to Homescreen". Our icon will appear on your homescreen, giving you easy access to the software and the "feel" of an app, but without the need for you to constantly update the way traditional apps do.

This software makes payroll incredibly easy for those of us entrusted with running the payroll of a small business. Much cheaper than an accountant, very easy to enter information once you get the hang of it, and convenient and easy to print the payroll register. We do not use "Nat Pay" - their method of direct deposit, so my review is strictly for the payroll filing/calculating that we use this software for. We handle direct deposits in the house.

Pros

Easy to use, very cheap, and live representatives here in the USA available during normal business hours. Fast turn around time (12-24 hours) when you reach them after hours.

Cons

I attempted to use their accounting software, and it's lacking a lot of the functionalities that make other accounting software more attractive, such as importing transactions from a bank account, etc. I would have been happy to try and ride the wave of the learning curve, but I went with a more popular accounting option based on features.

Advice to Others

Definitely try it for at least an hour or two. once you get the hang of it, you'll love it. and There's always a friendly representative willing and able to help if need be!

I have been using a more data cloud based system to do the payroll, but the reports it generated were very cumbersome. I am so happy that I found this organization; I can give my clients high-quality reports for a fraction of the costs and making changes to subscription and the overall value for the features is unprecedented.

Pros

features; reporting

Cons
