Pros
I have been on it for about 1 1/2 years. Most of my questions I can get from the online help menu and the few times I have had to call for assistance they are just awesome.

SB

Sue B.

They offer exceptional training and the customer support is superb. Thank you Red Wing for making our transition easy and enjoyable.

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

FP

Frieda P.

Cons
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.

MC

Margareta C.

We are paid weekly which I know maybe odd now days, but that was not an option, so I had to make adjustments to each salaried person every time there is 53 pay periods in a year.

Give us a report writer or let us use a reporting tool such as crystal reports. The second half of my criticism is that Redwing does not offer a HR module that ties in with the payroll module.

Center Point Payroll for Small Businesses

Reviewed 4 years ago

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.

Vendor response

Thank you so much Robyn for the wonderful review! We appreciate having you as a customer! I will check into the status of the partner solution you mentioned and get back to you. Stephanie, Red Wing Software

Good basic product, but has the potential to be so much more!

Reviewed 4 years ago

While Centerpoint Payroll does our payroll well, it is seriously lacking in the reporting capabilities. Most of the reports are designed to be printed to paper and are not conducive to exporting into excel in a meaningful way. When exporting to excel reports need to be in a row and column format. By this I mean that a single row will be for a single record where the report will have many columns...

John, Thank you for your review of CenterPoint Payroll. I talked to support and they suggested an option to export raw data to .csv. Also, our new online time clock may solve the HR functions you mentioned. For anything it does not solve, we can enter them in as suggestions for improvement. Please contact support; they are aware of our correspondence and want to help. Thank you. Stephanie, Red Wing Software

Pleasantly Suprised

Reviewed 5 years ago

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.

Vendor response

Wow, Jane, thank you so much for taking the time to write this glowing review! It is great to hear that you are loving CenterPoint Payroll. Whenever you are ready, just give our support team a call and we will help you figure out the inactive employees. Thanks again! Stephanie Elsen, Red Wing Software

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!)

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...
