The ease of using the software and how helpful the staff at Patriot are if you need help. They personally will walk you through the steps and make sure you are comfortable before you hang up.

PM

Peggy M.

The UI - it is super easy and user friendly. The FAQ - it is one of the best FAQs and super accurate.

Cons
I lost my payroll person when covid hit. I was stressed about this because finding anyone to take on more business when lockdown happened wasn't going to happen.

DC

Diana C.

The set up was awful and Patriot left me on an island and did not finalize anything and failed to file any state reports.

DB

David B.

All our employees are not eligible for the same time off accrual, and the inability to change individual time-off/holiday settings was initially quite frustrating.

Most pleased... intuitive and easy to use

Reviewed a year ago

Exceptional. Easy to use. Quick response on questions.

Pros

Intuitive, flexible, suits all my needs, takes care of the IRS, W2s, 1099... I love it.. Would cost me four times as much to even think about having a bookkeeper do this for me.. Excellent for small non-profit and for entrepreneurs.

Cons

Not really any. Took a little time to set up, but that is expected.

Totally Happy Customer

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

It's easy to use. It balances having many features without being too convoluted. Plus, it's one of the most affordable payroll services. I also love that I can easily call the company and talk to a real person. QuickBooks integration is a plus, as well. I like that it's easy to add mileage and other reimbursements, as well as custom categories of wages or other reimbursements. It's also nice that there are employee portals where employees can easily access payroll information and change their direct deposit without payroll staff having to do anything. I would happily recommend Patriot to anyone, especially cost-conscious customers. I'm very happy with our choice to use Patriot.

Cons

Navigation through webpages and some of the reports could be a little easier, but it's not much of a problem.

Excellent Customer Service and Support

Reviewed 2 months ago

The software is online and you can log into it from any computer or laptop system. I really like the customer service is quick to respond and plus I like there is a free trial.

Pros

We don't have that many employees. However, when I switched from QuickBooks to Patriot, it was because I was looking for a a more simple and user friendly interface to manage my payroll and accounting. As a small company I wear many hats and when I logged into Patriot for the first time, I didn't feel overwhelmed with the features it offered.

Cons

Well, like all payroll software if you want to use extra features you have to upgrade and so I didn't find it much affordable for me to keep paying a monthly subscription fee.

Get a real company to do your payroll

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

It is very inexpensive and takes on clients that have very few employees. Customer service reps are EXTREMELY HELPFUL, polite, and very knowledgeable of the program abilities and shortfalls.

Cons

You can cancel ANYTIME, but then you have to send all the State/Government taxes collect to their respective agencies with the appropriate paperwork. Patriot sends all the taxes back to you to deal with. Some taxes are due annually, due the end of January, so if you want Patriot to file it, you have to keep the subscription until that date. Nickel and diming. If you want them to track sick days, accumulated...

Vendor response

I'd like to take the opportunity to clarify some of your misgivings about Patriot: 1. You are correct, you can cancel anytime. If you do cancel, we do give you any money back we have collected so that you can make your filings yourself. If you want Patriot to file, for you, (we'd be happy to), you just need to cancel after the filings have been made. 2. You do not get charged to keep track of sick...

Great payroll option

Reviewed 3 months ago

Love it! It's how payroll use to be using intuit. Simple, easy and ad free.

Pros

Great support team, fast and easy to set up and run.

Cons

As an Administrator, you have to call them to have access for setting up a client. 2nd and 3rd access to finish up. Should always have full access to make adjustments.
