Pros

It is cleaner than 4 and it is more intuitive. The upgrade went smoothly thanks to the help of PDS Team.

LP

Lydia P.

PDS's customer support is the best in the industry - resolving most of my issues in less than a day.

BC

Barbara C.

If you like personalized service and a team who genuinely cares about their customers you should definitely consider use of this product.

MC

Melissa C.

Pros

This product was recommended by our CPA who uses it for his own office. That recommendation was good enough for us and it has proven to be an invaluable asset to our business.

RG

Rachel G.

Great service, great app, great website. User friendly, leaves me with no questions after checking my breakdowns every pay period.

Meagan O.

We are a month into the implementation process with Paychex and just processed our very first payroll. So far the experience with Paychex and their implementation team has been outstanding.

MF

MIRANDA F.

Cons

Job history has been really hard to accurately track. Tracking applicants in multiple reqs has also been hard.

CP

Cody P.

The position structure is very cumbersome and difficult to update.

LP

Lydia P.

Also when using the timesheet to add deduction or fringe adjustments that apply only for the specific pay period it doesn't stay on the same tab when changing employees.

WT

Wendy T.

Cons

I never criticize publicly about an organization but this one was so very unprofessional and even made worse by the outrageous fees they charge.

JC

Joyce C.

It can be a problem to login to the work site which is frustrating when trying to clock in or clock out on time.

Anonymous Reviewer

Just about everything else. Its not user-friendly, its customer service is terrible and we get so many complaints for employees, as the admin I have limited resources to help.
