Pros
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.
Their full service payroll is a tremendous value and well worth it. For any questions during initial configuration or for making changes after up and running, Patriot support is outstanding.
The process is very easy to use, trustworthy as well as inexpensive for the quality of service you receive. When needing help from the Support Team they have all been extremely helpful.
Cons
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.
The set up was awful and Patriot left me on an island and did not finalize anything and failed to file any state reports.
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.

Patriot Software - Great Payroll Software Value

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, Patriot has been great to work with. Set up was quick and easy. Onboarding employees and contractors are straight-forward and not hard to do. And their service is top-notch as well.

Pros

I like the ease of use and user-friendly interface and dashboard.

Cons

I think that the timeline when processing payroll isn't as advantageous to small businesses as more expensive options like ADP can be. Although it's not as costly as ADP it required payroll to be funded about a week ahead of check dates which can be challenging for a new, small field service company.

Do not let your accountant use this software.

Reviewed a year ago

My accountant disappeared, I'm assuming it is because she defrauded her clients and I can't reach her or find her anywhere. Patriot Software is refusing to give me the payroll records for my business so I can be law-abiding and get my taxes done. I have explained to them NUMEROUS times the following: After continually forgetting to run payroll, my previous accountant told me she was selling her...

Pros

Nothing. It was a pain A business owner can't access it, only the accountant

Cons

As a business owner, Patriot will hold your records hostage if your accountant defrauds and disappears on you. Patriot will never be on the business owners' side. Customer service is terrible!

Good

Reviewed 4 months ago

Customer service has been really good 99% of my issues. I did get one time that it’s just how it is. I’m like ok but can you pass it on as an idea. I’m sure there are reasons but wish support was open later for us in the western part.

Pros

I have been a QB user for 12 years. There are things I am having to get use to with Patriot but so far good. The person we talked to originally had us thinking, we should stay with QB but we looked into the demo and played with it on the accounting side. So far,I have only dealt with the payroll set up. It has over all been pretty easy and I like a couple of the features are included and cheaper then QB is online. Customer service has been really good about answering questions. As far as accounting, we will see how it goes.

Cons

The person we talked to originally had us pretty convinced to stay with QB. Play with the demo before making your decision. Over all payroll hasn’t been to bad. Accounting is more where we will see how it goes With QB you can be more detailed with your chart of accounts, atleast in desktop, for infinity but with patriot it is 8 rows. You can transfer some things from QB but most of it will have to be redone from the beginning of your physical year.
