Pros

As a New Englander Patriots is my football team, so why not Patriots Software! The name was the draw, the customer service is the prize to keep me.

Cons

Add an emergency contacts tab to the Employee section.

I like the payroll part of the software very much. I had a couple of employees with garnishments that had to be processed and this program allows that while the one I was using, I had to manually figure that each week.

Pros

It's simplicity and integration with the accounting software.

Cons

The payroll checks don't list individually in the check register, so it's sometimes hard to reconcile with the bank account.

My client had an issue with the state quarterly forms. Although the SUTA taxes were remitted by Patriot , none of the quarterly returns were filed for the last 5 quarters. After sorting out an issue with the state exemption status, a request was made several times for Patriot to file the late returns. It's been 26 days and still no returns filed. You are not able to speak with the "tax team" or receive any communications from the tax department. All emails, chats and phone calls go thru a general support team. The latest email I received stated the filing of the forms are a "first come, first serve basis". Is Patriot not able to keep up with timely filings for all customers? The support ticket has been opened for over 26 days. I'm wondering if Patriot uses an outside service for tax filing?

Pros

Ease of use, simple interface, reports,

Cons

Tax filings, lack of email notifications

Response from Patriot Software

Doreen, Patriot is 100% supported in-house in the USA. Our tax team is available by email or phone option 4. It looks like there was some back and forth about getting the settings and exemptions correct all the way up to last week. Our team is working on your request, we assure you. Please feel free to call and speak with our tax team at any time.

This is the first web-based program I have used and I have been very happy with it. It's easy to navigate and easy to find any reporting I may need.

Pros

Having a website-based payroll system makes it easy to access. I can keep track of paid time off, deductions, garnishments and all the reporting. I appreciate being able to see past reporting and filings as well. It's live time so I can see employees logging in and out of the timeclock. Working with technical support as always been a positive experience, I can get answers right away.

Cons

The con about using this system is that it is not correctly registering our overnight crews clock ins and outs. Because they clock in the next day their hours must be manually corrected. I was told this is being worked on in order to get corrected in the future.

Reasons for Choosing Patriot Payroll

Previously the company was using a physical timecard system. Staff would swipe a card in and out. Then you would have to export that time into the software system. This system also did not keep track of overnight time correctly. Everything was very manual and staff couldn't see their timesheets or add in time off.

At the time I think Gusto was charging a little more and also the sales team seemed more aggressive.
