Payroll rules and tax reporting / payments are simplified in one place.

Pros

This software was very easy to use, and as my business grows I am finding the necessary features needed are available to me.

Cons

If I had not checked to verify this JE was correct, this would have been difficult to track down later.

Solid Payroll Software

2021-01-06

It does what it says it'll do really well, but don't expect any extra integrations or anything special.

Pros

It's extremely easy and non-time consuming to run payroll or manage it on behalf of other clients.

Cons

The interface can feel dated, and the lack of any mobile app can make on the go management a hassle.

Overall please with our switch from Quickbooks to Patriot

2021-01-06

Overall we have had a great experience with patriot, we had quite a few issues with the transition over (mainly due to the fact we made the switch in the 4th Qtr of 2019 so there was a ton of data to be entered).

Pros

I love how organized it keeps all of our data and the ability to send our hourly time clocks straight to the payroll.

Cons

I also wish that there was a way for the managers to view hourly time clocks without needing access to the main admin account.

I am very happy with Patriot!

Pros

I can do my payroll in minutes and everything is taken care of behind the scenes - Taxes, payments and reporting.

Great product and service

2017-06-05

Once the sales rep had us hooked, we were left with a revolving door of account managers and regular re-negotiating of our pricing.

Pros

The interface is super simple -- payroll is done in just a few clicks.

Cons

We haven't been through a full quarter yet though, so the reports may turn out to be more substantial with more data.

Quick Feedback

2021-02-09

We're always looking for ways to be more efficient, and this one was a move we've been real happy with.

Pros

Patriot Payroll is a real time saver.

Cons

I wish it integrated with our online time clock. We made the move in Q3 and needed to manually input all prior payrolls for the year.

Great, affordable payroll software

2021-01-18

Does everything we need for a fraction of the price of our old payroll solution. Switching was simple, the very few times we've needed to contact support they've been very responsive and answered our questions.

Pros

Easy to set up, affordable, does everything we need with payroll calculations and tax reports. The integration with QuickBooks online saves a lot of time as well.

Cons

Reports could be better and easier to access from the payroll section.

I LOVE PATRIOT PAYROLL!!!

2021-01-11

I love this software- it is clean, simple and very professional in the way it keeps up with tax and accounting laws.

Pros

As a small business owner, I love having a comprehensive payroll system that not only accurately manages payroll for my team, but it "helps" me to follow laws (that constantly change) by having accurate data structures and helpful "tips" embedded right into the GUI.

Cons

Pulling reports is not as intuitive as it could be.

No direct communications from the Tax Team results in delays

2020-11-10

My client had an issue with the state quarterly forms. Although the SUTA taxes were remitted by Patriot , none of the quarterly returns were filed for the last 5 quarters. After sorting out an issue with the state exemption status, a request was made several times for Patriot to file the late returns. It's been 26 days and still no returns filed. You are not able to speak with the "tax team" or receive any communications from the tax department. All emails, chats and phone calls go thru a general support team. The latest email I received stated the filing of the forms are a "first come, first serve basis". Is Patriot not able to keep up with timely filings for all customers? The support ticket has been opened for over 26 days. I'm wondering if Patriot uses an outside service for tax filing?

Pros

Ease of use, simple interface, reports,

Cons

Tax filings, lack of email notifications

Response from Patriot Software


Doreen, Patriot is 100% supported in-house in the USA. Our tax team is available by email or phone option 4. It looks like there was some back and forth about getting the settings and exemptions correct all the way up to last week. Our team is working on your request, we assure you. Please feel free to call and speak with our tax team at any time.

Perfect for the small non-profit

2021-01-10

We needed a payroll-only service for less than 5 employees that would not cost us a fortune in monthly subscription fees. We also wanted something that would work seamlessly with QuickBooks, and have the ability to manage tax filing as well. Patriot Payroll does all this and more!

Pros

The reports are easy to use and provide exactly the data we need, including SBA and Covid reporting tools.

Cons

The initial set up to import existing payroll was a bit tricky, so take your time and make sure you have all your data current and available to make this easier.

User Friendly Non-profit Payroll Management System

2021-01-13

The addition of Patriot Payroll has cut my payroll processing time in half and provides simple reports I can provide to our accountant for the completion of our monthly accounting.

Pros

The feature that is most useful to me is the step by step payroll processor.

Cons

It would be useful if there were more personalizations for the time-off/holiday settings.
