Payroll Mate Software


 

Payroll Mate is an on-premise payroll management solution designed for small and midsize companies. It helps users automatically calculate federal and state payroll taxes.

The software also supports multiple pay-frequencies (bi-weekly, semi-monthly and monthly pays) and payroll formats (e.g., regular salary, hourly pay, overtime pay and bonuses).

Payroll Mate allows users to calculate and track vacation and sick time and use this information to determine monthly pay for employees. Users can export employee payroll data to a third-party accounting solution (such as QuickBooks and Sage 50) so users can prepare general ledger and other financial reports.

The reporting module of the software allows users to prepare elaborate employee payroll reports, such as state taxation reports, employee earnings, tax liability and journal reports that help enterprises make informed decisions regarding employee payroll handling processes.

The usual expected benefits except for a lengthier process time

Pros

I like the fact that it is not an internet based process. This offers more company privacy for employee information, (names, addresses, SSN's) pay rates and other data.

Cons

In their list of features PM makes it sound as if each feature was included as they normally are in other payroll programs. But they are add-ons that require additional purchase. Kind of nickel and dimeing customers. But their worse feature is the requirement of processing one employee then returning to the screen to select the next employee. With 90 employees this is a very time consuming task. Surely with the technology PM has they could improve this feature.

I have been using Payroll Mate for a few years in my business and other firms that I do payroll and 1099's for. What a wonderful product. The easiness of using the product is the best I have found. I have only had to call support a couple of times over this course of time and found them to be wonderful and of course get me up and running quickly. I would highly recommend to use this product. I wish more software would run this easy and accurately. A plus to this - just your annual fee and your done. No monthly fees to use their software. Highly recommend this product to businesses that have the responsibility of payroll. I give them an A+++.

Pros

No monthly fees, easiness of use. Even a lay person can learn this.

Cons

I have found that bringing it into Quickbooks is a little tricky. Since I'm experienced in payroll I just bring it into my Quickbooks ledger manual and it works great.

I use the program biweekly for the maintenance men and management personnel of a 250 unit homeowner association. The program is very easy to use. The only improvement I would like to see is inputting payroll. Now you input one, go back to the main screen and repeat. A pain. Why not before going back to the main screen there is an option to input payroll for another employee. Would be a lot quicker.

The program is easy to setup and run. Only thing I am not using is the W2 part. As I cannot easily change the location to put for State Disability Insurance, ending up I purchase the W2 from Office Depot which has more flexibility.

I was looking for something to use in place of the Quickbooks Payroll. This is the answer! You can dump everything right into QB, if you can figure out how. With renaming the accounts and all that it's just easier to edit the checks before printing for the taxes. If we had more employees where it would take longer I'd probably try harder but for now it works for me!

Pros

Simple to use, effective.

Cons

Defaults to showing all employees instead of just active ones. I don't need to pay inactive employees, why do they have to show up on my payee list?

I have a small restaurant employing less than 10 people and this program is great. Its easy to add or delete employees and do the weekly payroll. I like how it fills the forms needed to send to the government.
My only complaint is when i do the payroll and go to print the checks is you have to scroll through the calendar to get to the week you are working on.

I've been using Payroll Mate for a little over five years now. The program is very easy to use and seems to be ideal for a small company (church). I use it strictly for payroll and paying payroll taxes. They are constantly updating for ease and convenience in use. You can't beat that for the money.

Pros

It is user friendly. I like being able to move easily from employee to employee and from different forms or reports with just a click or two.

Cons

When entering dates for items, I have to start at January and move to the correct date. It would be easier if I could enter the date without starting back at January.

I am not the most computer-savvy person, and I have found this program to be quite easy to install and fairly user-friendly, which is high marks in my book. I have needed a bit of support along the way, just because it is a new program to me, and have found the support team to be knowledgeable and friendly. A big plus in the customer service department!

Pros

Easy to navigate

Cons

Wish it were easier to link between customer and monthly paycheck.

Advice to Others

I do like the ease of figuring out this software, the back up reminder, and the multiple companies I can install.

I have used various payroll software programs and this software is by far the best. I have been renewing for 3 years running. I do payroll for 4 companies and it does the job well!

Pros

User friendly. Easy Navigation and all inclusive.

Cons

If you want to change the date on the check, even via edit, you can't change it so you have to delete it and build a new check.

It's very easy to use. And understand. I have been using it for 2 yrs with no issues. I recommend it to anyone, especially one who doesn't know a lot about computers like myself. I don't like this part of the survey, don't know why you need a 100 words before you accept my review.
