Suketu Shah

Online payroll

2011-10-08

I did not have to write or print cheques as the pay was automatically deposited in employees account.

Pros

Easy to use. Do not need to keep records.

Cons

We get the same pay every 2 weeks . .I wish there was one click command to process payroll instead of entering time for employees

I am very pleased with this product

2015-04-21

Remittances were a breeze with this easy app. Each employee is sent the pay advice into their email or it can be printed for them.

Pros

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.

The reporting is pretty good too and our employees have been blown away with PayChequer.

Pros

I love having control of our payroll PLUS it tracks vacation!

The reporting could be better - there are some reports that are only produced in .pdf format.

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!

A fantastic SMB Payroll and HR app

2015-02-05

This is a fantastic app. It almost replaces a whole accountant for your payroll need and makes you independent. It is extremely user friendly, and doesn't need much CRA/Tax knowledge.

Pros

- Free tier for up to 3 employees.

Excellent Program

2017-02-15

I love Payment Evolution! The only recommendation I have is the printing of pay stubs - perhaps I am not doing it correctly, but the way it prints is not the most appealing.

Really easy to use payroll

2013-01-08

We took a look at PaymentEvolution payroll and were immediately impressed by the simple interface. I actually learned how to use it within just a few minutes - and within about 15min of registering, we had finished our first payrun.

Great Product and Service

2017-02-16

We have been using the software for a few years and it is very easy to use.

Pros

It also provides a lot different reports that are helpful.

Cons

I think the only con would be the section where you have to close off a month when generating payroll.

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

2017-02-08

Payment Evolution was my first experience with online payroll, and it beat the pants off Quickbooks!

Pros

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.

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

Great product idea¿ needs serious design investment

2017-02-15

If I were you, I'd suggest investing in some great UX and UI design. It would really make all the difference in the world for us.

Pros

The actual function of running payroll and calculating deductions is a great and useful idea.

Cons

The design needs some serious polish and improvement.

AWFUL!!

2018-03-10

Paychequer and being on the cloud is nice but everything else about the system is horrible. Support is ok but they can never solve the problem because the system is horrible.

Cons

It looks user friendly but when you start looking for basic/accouting reports it lacks a lot.

Great Payroll App from an Awesome Company

2018-05-12

Easy payroll runs.

Pros

Vendor payments are simple too. Integrations with accounting software make our lives easier: no manual journal entries!

Cons

Stat holiday pay is not handled in the app yet. The data table for entering the payroll hours, etc. for the pay period is clunky and needs to be flipped vertically.

Pros

sometimes things always as clear as they could be ex. the vacation pay, when paying everything out it puts a zero which when it is your first time doing that can be quite confusing.
