Pros

Ease of use. Easy setup. Great customer service. You can't beat the price. With ADP and Paychex costing 2-3 times more, this is truly the way to go.

Cons

I've been using Patriot Software since the beginning of the year. I have not found any cons as of yet.

Even with the check printing challenges, I love the service. Nothing is perfect. We have been with Patriot for over a year now and our experience has been very consistent. We moved from another payroll service that cost about the same but did far less and had issues several times a year. I feel Patriot Software is fair. Most of the time when companies of multi service options as "piece meal" solution, the company does this in order to maximize the appearance of low cost. With Patriot, it is not the case, in my opinion it is to allow business owners to pick what their company needs.

Pros

Easy to use web interface and good help functions if you need them. Quick service if you have questions with their chat help feature. Very knowledgeable staff every time I have spoken to them. Patriot offers many options to pick from in order to meet each business needs. System just works without issues. If you choose, they will file all of your forms for you and I think it is well worth it. The employee portal is a great tool that allows employees to access their information at any time without using any man hours.

Cons

The printing of checks is the biggest issue we have found. It does print well once you setup. Printer setup is a bit challenging. The second part of the check printing issue is when you print on check voucher laser checks, no matter how you setup, it really does not print info in the right areas. Also unsure why you have to enter a check number on the "print payroll" page in order to download the file to print check with. Check numbers are already printed on the checks.

I've struggled to find a reliable, inexpensive, and easy payroll service for our 1 person payroll. Of all three, I'd be happy with just easy. Finally, we found Patriot and got all three. Best of all, their customer service is outstanding! The people are friendly, knowledgeable, and eager to help solve any problem. While our current needs are tiny, I have run businesses with much larger payrolls in the past and wish I'd known about Patriot then.

Pros

Great customer service (really great)
Easy interface
Exports to Quickbooks

Cons

Does not support Worker's Compensation accounting

I had been looking for the right fit for my small business. Patriot was something that jump out at me as the price was reasonable and was not trying to sell me anything that I really did not need. I like it so far. I only signed up for the basic as I like to do things my way.

Pros

I like that you give the business owner or manager the option to input your own information and print out your own payroll with out charging an arm and leg. Being a small company I only have two employees and it was just the right fit for my company

Cons

I have not found any thing that I did not like as yet. I just started, but so far its great

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!

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!!
