Payroll Mate is an on-premise payroll management solution designed for small and midsize companies based in the United States. It allows users to manage payroll, pay employees, calculate taxes, prepare checks, create payroll reports and export data to ERP and accounting solutions.

It helps users automatically calculate federal and state payroll taxes. It allows users to pay salaries at pay-frequencies (bi-weekly, semi-monthly and monthly pays) and payroll formats (e.g., regular salary, hourly pay, overtime pay and bonuses). It tracks vacation and sick time off and adjusts the salary.

The reporting module allows users to create payroll reports such as state taxation reports, employee earnings, tax liability and journal reports. These reports can be exported to Microsoft Excel, CSV and Adobe PDF. It offers integration with QuickBooks and Sage 50.

Customer support is offered by a support website that includes FAQs, tips and knowledgebase.

Integration

the experience is awesome. It can generate payroll reports, flexible in that it can calculate net pay monthly, semi monthly and even weekly for both casual and permanent employees.

Pros

This software is the best so far in the handling payroll needs. one is able to export payroll details t o other accounting softwares like sage 300, calculate all employee deductions and benefits then use this data to prepare final financial statements with ease. This is a unique feature which lacks in many softwares . I also like its interface which is so simple and user friendly.

Cons

It has so many features which may not be fully utilised.

It did what we needed

Pros

It handled our payroll records for the gap year that we needed.

Cons

Software seemed a bit primitive and not totally user friendly. The last time we used was in 2016 so I hope they integrated some new options and services.

PAYROLL PROGRAM EVEN DUMMIES CAN LEARN AND USE VERY QUICKLY.

HAVING PAYROLL MATE HAS ALLOWED OUR BUSINESS, WHICH WAS 100% TAX ANALYSIS AND PREPARATION SINCE 1974 TO DOUBLE OUR CUSTOMER BASE BY PROVIDING PAYROLL SERVICES FOR MANY OF OUR CUSTOMERS WHO YEARLY ASKED US FOR THIS SERVICE. SHOULD HAVE DONE THIS MANY YEARS AGO.

Pros

EASE OF USE, SIMPLICITY IN EACH STEP AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, THE CONVENIENCE OD JUST CALLING IN FOR HELP AS OFTEN AS NECESSARY. THE HOME OFFICE PERSONNEL ARE SO FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL. THEY MAKE ONE FEEL AS IF THEY ARE TALKING TO A FRIEND.

Cons

THERE IS NOTHING THAT I DO NOT LIKE ABOUT PAYROLL MATE.

I really love this software because it is very easy to understand and complete the payroll in a time

Pros

This software helps you complete your payroll in a timely manner and it help you by making sure before you print a check that it's correct

Cons

What I like least about this software is that. If you have a person name in the file listed it forms a new name instead of correcting the original name

No headache payroll solution for me and my staff

Automation of payroll in the easiest of ways. Very, very useful to every business small and large!

Pros

There's so many things you can do that it is so worth every penny you pay. Reports are very easy to generate and understand.

Cons

The layout can be a bit of an eyesore and workflows are sometimes hard to understand in the beginning.

Payroll Mate makes payroll almost easy.

Pros

Payroll Mate is so easy to use. It is easy to set up. The reports are thorough. It is pretty much a no-frills program which makes it less complicated than some. There is a yearly fee - which gives you an entirely new program - but the transition is painless. The data from the previous year automatically transfers over so no new data input. The direct deposit function is great and easy to use too.

Cons

There are a few little things that I wish the software did. One of them is the ability to email check stubs to all of the employees at once when you are using direct deposit. Having to either print check stubs and distribute them or save each stub as a separate .pdf and email them individually kind of defeats the purpose of direct deposit.

Excelent product at a great price

Pros

The product is very user friendly. Great customer support that is very fast and friendly. I would recommend this product whole heartedly.

Cons

Would like to be able to pay employees across multiple states. We have found a way to pay the same employee for multiple states, but we do have to do extra calculations for our 941s at the end of the quarter.

Affordable and easy to use Payroll

Affordable payroll solution for smaller companies. Ease of use

Pros

This is probably one of the easiest, affordable payroll solutions I have found. It will download new updates when needed. Once you have all your information provided for the company and employees, it quite simple to use and create paychecks. I really like it.

Cons

When creating reports and forms for a specific period you need to remember to use the drop down menu to find the correct period or quarter you are looking for.

great software. practical to use. I would like to see added feautures "Departments" and self mailer

I am able to offer payroll service

Pros

PRACTICAL . easy to use... user friendly,, simple interface, looks friendly on the eye,, easy to backup

Cons

limited in robust features;
I am a CPA office providing service to many clients> some of them are restaurants with multiple locations. I need to have the ability to print reports by DEPARTMENT; also, I would like to professionalize my service and add a "self mailer machine" to my process. This means that I need to be able to custom format the printing in order to print checks in this machine
