Payroll Mate 2019 - 2020 Package



Payroll Mate includes all the standard features of a capable payroll product such as automated taxes, compliance management, and payroll reports, but it is missing a handful of features one would expect from software in its class.

It doesn't have an employee database and employee self-service portal, paperless employee onboarding, or built-in timesheets. If it is important to collaborate with team members or access the software via mobile devices, then you'll need to look to top-ranked, feature-packed Gusto and Zenefits. And you won't find a user-friendly activities dashboard and 256-bit SSL security encryptions in Payroll Mate.

However, Payroll Mate does offer digital signature, contractor payment, and bonus and off-cycle payrolls and users will like Payroll Mate's year-round recordkeeping.

Payroll Mate is simple in its offering, but has a one-time price of just $119. BrightPay, with its similar feature profile, costs $127.43 per year, and Bamboo HR's, also similar, costs $6.19 per user per month.

Although some of its competitors offer a few more features, Payroll Mate is an affordable and solid option with great functionality.
