User Reviews of Paychex Flex

There was a lot of paperwork, worrying about the tax codes, a lot of office hours involved taking up a lot of my time. Now with Paychex, one day a week, 10 to 15 minute call…Paychex definitely helps us manage our cashflow.

Prior to using Paychex, we worked in house. I skated by just doing whatever I thought was the right thing to do. Then my accountant caught up with me one day and said, ‘that’s not a legal situation.’ That’s when I lost sleep, because that’s when I had a hit that came out of my pocket. That impacted me for seven to 10 months. And that’s when my accountant said ‘Paychex is somebody that we recommend.

What we learned in a discovery process with Paychex was all the different services that were available. That was music to my ears as a new CFO….From an efficiency standpoint, knowing we could have our 401(k) under your program, having the management and compliance done with one party obviously makes my life a lot easier.
