Pros
I find it user friendly and if I do have a question the customer service is fantastic. I love the webinars as well, I don't usually need them but the few I have joined were great.
We love the platform because it is so sophisticated yet easy to use - we save time, money and appreciate how simple it is to pay our employees.
Best of all, PaymentEvolution sends the payroll information to QuickBooks so our accountant is happy.
Cons
Difficult to printing of reports and lack of user manual.
The main issues for me are the overall user experience, buggy/sloppy interface, and confusing flow.
Looking through pay stubs needs to be updated - there should be a drop down menu instead of a click to go to the next employee.

I am very pleased with this product

Reviewed 9 years ago

After using a PC based software which was difficult to use and didn't report the way we needed, this is a dream! We had an accountant and Point of Sale system and just needed a payroll component. This really fit the bill and so far, is working beautifully. It's so automated and yet, there are many ways to customize it (for example, vacation pay calculations for your province). I haven't found a...

Pros

Easy to use. Product support was amazing for the couple of questions I have had. Cost effective at $17/month (no hidden add-on fees) Communicates payroll effectively with employee

Cons

I couldn't find a way to export employee information from my software to Payment Evolution, so had to enter it manually. With 10 employees it was fairly simple and just had to enter YTD amounts along with employee information.

Payment Evolution

Reviewed a year ago

It's made my life so much simpler, especially since it's my first time doing payroll!

Pros

For someone, who has no formal accounting or bookkeeping education, this software has been pretty intuitive and easy to use.

Cons

I don't like that in order to make changes to an employee's salary or information, I have to go through so many clicks to get there.I also do not like that when you enter in an employee's salary (when less than 40 hours a week), you cannot put the yearly salary that they would receive at 40hrs/week and the software doesn't adjust the number automatically to their salary at their number of hours per week -- which is how we account for salary base in our files.

Unnecessary fees / Long processing times

Reviewed 3 years ago

Honestly I wish there was another system I could use, but payment evolution will continue to get my money until something else comes along.

Pros

Processes payroll pretty easily and stat holidays are easily inputted. Saves a lot of time on T4's. Employees get their own log in portal so they go there instead of to me directly for pay stubs.

Cons

You only have a 1 day window to process your payroll so it comes out on the day you want. My pay period ends on Saturdays so I only have Sunday to do it for it to be deposited on Friday-Because it's an unnecessary 5 day processing time. This also means if there is a holiday on a Friday, the employees pay ends up being 3 days late. They also charged me $60 because an employees bank account was unknowingly...

Payroll Evolution - a big help!

Reviewed a year ago

We have been able to offer Direct Deposit payroll for all of our employees. We have also been able to integrate Payment Evolution with our existing accounting software making keeping track of payroll easy.

Pros

We switched from in house payroll to Payment Evolution. The best parts of the software is the low cost, tax compliance, Quickbooks Online integration, and automatic generation and submission of T4's and T4A's.

Cons

The initial setup took some time but overall it wasn't bad. We had only used Quickbooks payroll for a month before switching to Payment Evolution so there was a learning curve.

Biggest mistake was leaving Payment Evolution...but they took me back

Reviewed 7 years ago

Payment Evolution was my first experience with online payroll, and it beat the pants off Quickbooks! I halfed my payroll entry time, quartered my time spent on ROEs, and getting rid of cheque payments to staff while providing them with online record keeping all was good. Then came the price restructuring and I found myself one staff member into the higher tier, and the competition offered a 'we'll...

Pros

Intuitive. Everything is simple and straightforward. I can figure out 90% of what I need to do myself, and in those 10% situations the support forum has descriptions detailed enough to get me back on track.

Cons

There is one text box that doesn't trigger when you press enter, instead you have to press the send button...grrrr...and its logout for inactivity is slightly too short for my liking.

Vendor response

Thanks for the feedback Kyle! We're really to happy to have you back and appreciate the feedback you've given us on pricing plans. QuickBooks (desktop) integration is available for payroll but not for business payments as you've pointed out. We're continuing to look at the business case for supporting QB desktop for business payments - it's a bit of a challenge given the offline nature of the product. - Kinga Jasek
