Payroll City’s fully supported payroll platform can handle simple and complex payroll situations.

Payroll City

I have worked with Payroll City for almost twelve years, and had numerous individual payrolls for multiple businesses. I can access the site and their software easily, even from my smartphone. Every time I call for support, a real live human being answers the phone and helps in any way I need. Their reporting on behalf of my payroll has never been in error with Government agencies. (With the larger payroll companies, there were errors periodically and I could not get the support I needed.) That was the initial reason I switched to Payroll City and still am pleased with that choice all of these years later.

Pros

I can easily make changes and updates to our payroll as well as access past records when necessary. The reports are clear and easy to interpret. Access from my smartphone is a plus when I'm not near my computer or when traveling.

Cons

Accessing certain reports is challenging for me, however, I believe that is mostly my lack of tech knowledge. If I don't use a feature often, and it is not familiar to me, I have difficulty navigating to a specific report. However, all it takes is a phone call to walk me through the process to access what I need.

Amazing platform & service!!!!

The support is really amazing. They are incredibly responsive by email or by phone. They really go above and beyond to make it a great experience.

Pros

Payroll City does everything I need. The platform really knows how to "talk" to my accounting software and spits out reports that are exactly what I need. It integrates really well with ERP and timekeeping systems - we don't lose data during the transfer in or out of payroll, like you do with other systems.

Cons

There is a slight learning curve in order to get it to work the way we need it to, but their staff is ready and willing to help talk it through.

Payroll City Review

We've had a great experience with Payroll City - we started with them many years ago and were the first to use a Mac system with their software - any issues we've had they were fixed right away. Great customer service and their software is very easy to use.

Pros

The software is easy to use and the many report options.

Cons

When entering in payroll hours, there is an up/down scrolling option, if you don't click off that spot it can change the hours up or down.

Great Software

A good payroll company needs to be a lot more than just software. The team is like an extension of my own company. When I call they answer the phone and quick to resolve any issues that arise. Whatever I need they are on it.

Pros

Very easy to use, customer service is great. Easy interface. Love the way it imports every single paycheck into my quick books software.

Cons

Nothing bad to report. Haven't had any problems.

Best company ever!

Payroll processing is easy and affordable. Staff is uniformly helpful, friendly and well informed. In over 8 years I've had no complaints. Their software/website upgrades were smooth transitions - well planned and with excellent support.

Pros

easy to use and understand; excellent support from Payroll City

Cons

The only thing that comes to mind is regret that I did not find Payroll City sooner.

The Data Entry Software is pretty friendly. Could use a few little tweeks. But Overall Satisfied.

FFHR Review

Pros

The software is overall user friendly. Has an easy navigating look.

Cons

The system is lacking several bells and whistles. Not a lot of payroll reports available, had to create several on our own to satisfy client needs. Did not feel it could handle large clients but might be a good fit for small simple clients.
