    Easy implementation, easy configuration and loading, is extremely efficient in calculating and taxing, excellent The navigation experience is simplistic, but very efficient, it is very different from other software of its kind. Very complete employee portal.

    Cons

    the function of direct deposit is very slow and restrictive compared to others, it is not effective for the Latin American market, the Trial of 30 days is not enough to be able to prove it effectively, (I had to do 2 Demos / accounts), to understand it at the beginning it costs , but the system helps you is intuitive, it is expensive software.

    Pros

    Features are really good as i have used other softwares too but they dont have such features. It is safe secure and very accurate . Also this software is very inexpensive as compare to others.

    Cons

    For new users it is not easy to understand and easy to use. It provides only 30 days trial which is i think is not sufficient to take decision.

    Good service to use more on the small scale of things. Employer used it and it was helpful because of the direct deposits.

    Cons

    Biggest con would be the ease of use, or I guess the user friendly levels of it. The portal is confusing at times but nothing too too bad.

    Online pay stubs

    Pros

    Everything is broke out into different areas so employees can easily comprehend what they are looking at.

    Cons

    Could be more streamlined. The pay stub page is too spread out.
    My suggestion would be too label it area and go in a logical order down the page.

    It works on the online web browser and keeps all information secure behind the authorized logins. It has helped us removing a lot of paper work for payroll management.

    The best value for small business payroll

    Value for Money

    The ability to easily and affordable prepare payroll for my S-Corp 1 employee business clients.

    Pros

    The price is right, despite them recently increasing their prices, it's still the best value for payroll for small businesses, specially S-Corps that only need shareholder payroll. Customer support is very friendly and helpful. It's easy to reach them by phone with no hold time. Running payroll is quick and easy once you've gotten past the setup.

    Cons

    Setup can be confusing and overwhelming especially if you are not starting the service on January 1st. The interface doesn't lend itself well to variable salary (non-hours based). I wish that I could just enter the gross wages for the period without it having to be a preset amount for the employee.

    When we decided to try out the Patriot software I wasn't sure if it was going to work out for our specific needs but not only did it work but exceeded our expectations.

    The only thing we're not so crazy about is the Customer Service hold when we need a tech to help us on the problem asap.

    A low-cost Payroll service

    Ease-of-use
    Functionality
    Quality
    Support
    Value for Money
    Pros

    It's one of the lower cost full-service payroll providers out there, and it has an attractive feel, and will appeal to business owners who are not full-time HR professionals.

    The dashboard is straightforward, decently uncluttered, and shows useful information at a glance, with the ability to quickly dive into more information as necessary.

    Running payroll is also relatively easy once everything is set up, and with full-service payroll, they will take care of all filings as well which is nice.

    The service is pay as you go, cancel anytime without penalty.

    Cons

    Running a payroll is a manual process, and when entering hours there doesn't seem to be a method for uploading a spreadsheet or any import process. For some businesses with many employees this would be tedious, unless you use their time tracking service as well (at an additional fee).

    They offer additional services, which may appeal to some businesses, such as accounting, but unfortunately they leave those menus intact regardless of if you have the product or not. The result was that as I learned the product, I often found myself on screens that unhelpfully said I don't have a subscription for this. In my opinion those options are cluttering up space, I don't need a constant reminder for a service I don't need. The only reason it is there is for gratuitous upsell, which doesn't help user experience.

    The biggest con for me, and the reason I ultimately chose another service, is the setup process. While I'd imagine it wasn't necessary difficult, it was overly complex, and involved printing documents, scanning, initialing, and steps other services don't require (or simplify) for setting up services such as Direct Deposit.

    Working with customer support felt like talking to a robot, not a human, who stood behind her curtain of company policies and couldn't engage in real conversation or sympathy for a frustrated customer. In 2018, we have enough robots to talk to, when we speak to a human they should really sound like one.

    It makes payroll a simple process. Literally data entry. The results are in real time and the process takes only minutes.

    Cons

    I have to select the reports I want printed. I wish I could set-up a group of reports and have them "named" payroll reports for me. It takes as much time to select the reports as it does for me to enter the payroll.

    Pros

    It's easy to add an employee, and set up all of the preferences. I have some employees that I pay monthly, others that I pay semi-monthly, and this software lets me set it up that way, unlike some others I've investigated. They take care of all of the complicated employee taxes with the federal and state governments for me, too. I would be absolutely lost without it.

    Cons

    I use another program from my accounting, because it's free and very functional. I wish that Patriot could offer me free accounting software as well as the great payroll option. My ideal world would include accounting, personnel and point of sale in an affordable bundle. So far, that doesn't exist.
