We chose to move forward with the Denali Payroll system and as of today we’ve been very happy with this decision.

Customer service was not good. They are just explaining things really fast. They act like we didn’t understand. They just want to sell.

Functionality was alright. Their support is way too expensive. The cost of the product wasn’t bad, but the support was outrageous. This is the main reason we switched.
