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.

Easy to use and understand. It has saved me hours of work, stress of getting payroll done and takes care of all the payroll needs.

I wish the time off feature could be easier to understand. I have struggled a bit with this and it should have employer capability to delete entries. I have no other faults with this program except the time off, vacation feature. This should be improved.

I sincerely appreciate the fact that this vendor is consistently available to give its customers 1:1 prompt and swift attention. Also, the peace of mind that comes with having all the payroll tax collections and filings done for me are worth the small monthly fee!

Likes Least

Honestly, there is nothing I can say I dislike about this product/vendor. I love everything about it. Now, if you're asking what is the thing that i love the LEAST about it, then i'll say it's the following: The additional products they advertise, i tried their free trial and was disappointed. However, those products are NOT what i'm reviewing here. The payroll software is just right.

Recommendations

For others evaluating this, I would strongly recommend that they compare prices side by side with all the major payroll services providers so that they can see first hand just how much more reasonably priced Patriot Payroll software is. I would also recommend that they take advantage of the live representative and ask them everything you need to ask, they are professional, quick and walk you through everything.

Hi Sharon! Thanks for the terrific review. In our free trial, you DO have access to all of the software and all of its features. You have the ability to create paychecks with blank check stock, or with pre-printed check stock. Your choice! In both cases, you are able to see a print preview and print a sample. :)

My only issue is that it does not seem optimized for Google Chrome, things like dialogue boxes seem more complete in otehr browsers. It is sometimes glitchy in Google Chrome.

Recommendations

I recommend being open to the fact that you will be more involved with the processing of your payroll and that it is not a bad thing to have more control.

Quickbooks doesn't let you pay whenever you want. They have a set schedule. If you're in the construction business with a sporadic employee turnover rate, this is the software for you.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the service and support. It is above and beyond.

Likes Least

The product itself falls short though. We are unable to use the full service because they do not support the tax forms we need. You cannot set up your recurring pay period dates and must manually enter them each and every time. It does not track vacation, holiday and other forms of PTO.

Recommendations

Consider closely what forms are needed for you industry because they do not support anything besides basic. They were honest with it after the fact and recommended/refunded us back to basic instead of full service so that was awesome. Most companies would have tried to keep getting more money from us but they suggested we pay them less. That does come with having to do all of our own tax filings though which was a major perk to selecting this software in the first place.

Hi Stephanie! Thank you for your feedback. Patriot Software is perfect for small business owners who file a 941 and 940/944 at year end. We do not handle agricultural Form 943 at this time. We will make note of your request for this and recurring pay also! You are in fact able to track vacation, holiday and other forms of PTO. We will have our wonderful support team reach out to you to show you how.

Thanks for the great review Kacey. We wanted to let you know that on "Step 2" of the payroll process, (where you approve payroll), we display the "summary" of the payroll. You can click a link in the top left-hand corner of that page that reads "View Details". This will display all wages, employer taxes, and employee taxes. Hope this helps! BTW, our wonderful support team is reaching out to you to assist you with this. :)

I am a brand new business owner. I had a few businesses prior to this, but never employees where I had to do payroll. I was scared to death of it. It kept me up nights. But Patriot Payroll took all the guess work out. SO SIMPLE. My point of sale system (Shopkeep) tracks employee hours and I input those into Patriot Software on the 1st and 15th. They had me input my local tax rates and voila- they pay out what needs to be paid out to the local, state and federal agencies and I just write my checks according to what the employee net that pay period. Patriot figured it all out for me!
