I LOVE your payroll system. It is so user friendly, accurate and easy to learn.

Substantial time savings because of features like Mass change, automatic distribution of payroll costs and month end accruals. The feature list is lengthy. From a dealer/consultant point of view, set up and conversions are a breeze.
