Center Point Payroll for Small Businesses

If you are accustomed to using in house payroll and are looking for a good software. I highly recommend Center Point Payroll. The Aatrix solution for tax filing is terrific.

Pros

Ability to do direct deposit for checks, and the Aatrix tax form preparation feature.

Cons

Still waiting for a time and attendance partner solution.

Pleasantly Suprised

In 2013 we switched our accounting system to a "shop system" which did not come with a payroll package. The "shop" system was a nightmare but they recommended CenterPoint payroll and I have been very pleased with the ease of use and the support I received getting it set up. I like it very much.

Pros

Ease of use. When I have had to call support they have always been able to answer my questions and are very pleasant.

Cons

I have not figured out how to eliminate inactive employees from the employee list when running a new payroll but I have not taken the time to call support to see if there is a way because I only have three.

Small payroll user

I have found CenterPoint Payroll a very good solution for easily producing payrolls and tracking the information we want to see in our business.

Pros

CenterPoint Payroll allows me to pay my employees, keep track of specific information about fields worked in, equipment used, department tracking, etc. It stays current with tax changes and allows deductions and has a variety of reports to mine information for tax reporting and payments and business analysis.

Cons

Unless I've missed it, I can't change the order the checks print in.

As a whole ....

it's a comprehensive flexible program that lets you personalize it many ways. However, personally I have an issue I have not been able to resolve (even after contact with the support group...) . I need the program to calculate a garnish with a limit of 65% of NET pay... it seems no matter what I do it calculates 65 % of GROSS pay. (Frustrating!)

Pros

Comprehensive.

Response from Red Wing Software of

Replied July 2016

Margareta, Thank you for your review of CenterPoint Payroll. I am sorry to hear about the issue you are having with the wage garnishment calculations. I have checked into this issue with the support team, and here is their response: You can setup a garnishment to calculate as a percentage of net pay by using the type="garnishment" on the deduction setup. On the employee's setup in the rate, you would enter the percent (65%), which would be the limit - it will never take more than 65% of net pay for the garnishment. Using the garnishment type for the deduction also allows you to set up a dollar amount limit (in the "up to amount" cell) and a minimum of net pay. So if 65% doesn't allow the employee to have enough "take-home" pay the deduction can be stopped before it reaches that percentage. I hope this helps! If you would like more information, our support team will be happy to help you. Thank you for doing this review and for being a Red Wing Software customer! Stephanie

One Change I would like to see on CenterPoint Payroll

Very happy with the program.

Pros

Ease of use, once the setup procedures are finished.

Cons

When you are creating a new payroll where you choose the dates - I really think "THIS FRIDAY" should be a choice as almost all of my, and I assume most user's, need that as the pay date. That way every payroll it will come up to that instead of having to change the date every single time.

Center Point Payroll Customer Review

Easy for me to say it is easy now. I know I struggled a bit at the start but Redwing support was great and now that I have the hang of it it is a breeze. By far the best part of Center Point Payroll is the redwing support system.

Pros

The expert support I can get at any time I run into a snag.

Cons

Cannot hold my WC codes to the earnings codes so have to enter that each time

Excellent Payroll Product!

Pros

The program is extremely intuitive. I've trained a couple of people to use it throughout the years, and it has been very easy to do. I just love everything about it!
