Everyone loves our small business payroll software

A 35-employee salsa company’s payroll used to be a time-consuming, heavily manual process. Once they dipped into Paycom’s comprehensive HR and payroll software, they got a real taste of efficiency.

“Paycom is a real no-brainer.”

Learn how Paycom helps your small business

Maybe. As with any kind of automation, it’s all about the tools you use and your skill set. If your small business has a talented software engineer or web developer on the team who can write the needed code and create the right dependencies, automating your own payroll might be possible.

However, because the employer is ultimately responsible for ensuring employees are paid accurately and on time, it’s not recommended to fully automate payroll. Too much automation can result in bonuses getting missed or even overpayments if too many hours are approved. Paycom’s skillfully designed software provides just the right amount of automation combined with human checkpoints and system alerts for the most accurate payroll.

Many small businesses rely on an executive or office manager — with little to no payroll experience — to process payroll in basic payroll accounting systems. These tools appeal to small businesses because the upfront costs are lower.

However, huge expenses exist on the back end: tax compliance issues, fines, civil penalties and tons of needlessly allocated hours. Add those up and you’ve spent more on the cheaper tool than you would have on a comprehensive payroll software solution.

Employers should consider the best options for their employee head count, industry and employee types (hourly, salary, billable, full-time, temporary, etc.). As your small business grows, even modest increases in head count unlock new compliance burdens. Your processes will quickly become more established and need to be streamlined.

Be sure to consider the employee experience and how the right tool can actually help with employee retention. Meet with a Paycom small business consultant today, and let us guide you through the decision-making process.

Several OK options for small business payroll are available, but we truly believe that Paycom’s single software provides the best experience for your small business and your employees. Don’t just take our word for it; let us show you the Paycom difference. Schedule a personalized demo to see for yourself.

The cost of payroll “solutions” varies wildly depending on the quality of the product and the level of service included. Beware of “free” payroll software. Apps that claim to be free often have abhorrent privacy policies that effectively allow them to use your employees’ information however they see fit. This creates a huge liability for the employer, who is ultimately responsible for ensuring the privacy and security of their employees’ data.

Paycom is priced right for small businesses based on our proven ROI.

If you want to build and expand your business, with the highest and best use of your time, you definitely need payroll software. Otherwise, manual calculations, tax errors, legal issues and other time-consuming problems await the business owner who takes payroll into their own hands.

Fortunately, we’re here to help. Give us a call or request a meeting and we’ll take care of the heavy lifting.

We definitely recommend you engage an individual (whether an employee or a consultant) with payroll knowledge and experience to prepare payroll within your payroll system. This allows you to focus on generating revenue and growing your business with confidence that employees’ wages and hours will be treated correctly. If you’re not able to engage a payroll professional, you can still manage your own payroll with the support of your dedicated Paycom team.

With Paycom, you’re assigned an account manager and a dedicated account management team. Because you always work with the same small team of professionals, they know you and your business and stay up to date with your needs. All our support representatives are U.S.-based, super-responsive and have backgrounds in payroll. We don’t believe in phone trees or customer queues, because you deserve better.

For all your payroll needs in a single software, choose Paycom.
