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 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 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.

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

Pros

All tax related figures in one place. Easy to generate reports. Tax withholding amounts automatically done.

Cons

I can not coordinate the payroll check numbers with the check numbers I use in my check printing program. I use Shepherd's Staff and because we have so few employees I don't do an import I just use the figures Payroll Mate generates.
As a church we do not do any withholding for our Pastor so when I generate the Quarterly Federal Tax deposit I have to edit the 941 form to include his wages.

The most important thing about this program is that it works. I have used a few other payroll programs in the past that do calculations incorrectly or create reports that contradict each other, but this program does everything the way it is supposed to.

Cons

Very basic layout and the somewhat clunky workflow often gives me headaches, but they are applying updates fairly regularly that fix a functional problem every few weeks.

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.

Hi Jim, thank you for taking the time to submit your review. To pay multiple employees at the same time (instead of one employee at a time), please navigate to the ¿Employees¿ screen and from the top toolbar click the ¿Pay Multiple Employees¿ button.

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?
