Retail, professional services, non-manufacturing, or non-inventory-based clients are a great fit.

Paychex Accounting Online

I think Paychex Online payroll can be an asset for nearly any employer, especially if there have been improvements to allow employee access and data storage. Many employees prefer to be paperless and would rather access paystubs, W-2s, etc. online and/or via email. It'd also be great for employees to be able to make healthcare, 401k, etc., selections online and/or review selections made previously or in a different venue.

Cons

Accounting Power

  • CPA firm's client interface for delivery of bills to pay

Steven Brewer | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paychex Accounting Online

  • One thing I can think of is when you need to run a report that has to include more than two years of payroll information (year to date salaries, etc.) you are unable to do so BUT if you contact your rep they can do it for you. I am sure they will come up with a solution for this problem sometime in the near future.

Had the company I worked for not gone out of business, it is likely they would have continued using this service.

It provides everything one needs for accounting services and then some at a price point that makes it very affordable.

Needs some work. Support staff seem to be computer people, not accountants or users of the system. Their answers sometimes seem short and computer-based. Not answered in a way that says, "I have thought through this and here is what I see to do."

They deserve this rating. When I first began using Paychex at AIT they were there to answer all of my questions as needed because there was no one in the company who knew what they were doing. I had to do reports that Payroll normally did not do but I did. Thank goodness for Teshia and Martha at Paychex.

Implementation was very smooth. The most cumbersome task was entering the current employees into the system during initial set up, but Paychex staff handled most of that and verified against prior system reports as well as internal reports provided to ensure 100% accuracy.

Alternatives Considered

I find Accounting Power to have more flexibility, power, and reporting capability than QuickBooks Online with a simpler interface.

Paychex Accounting Online

I haven't used any others, this is the only one I'm familiar with. It was already being used before I got here, so I didn't have much "deciding" to do.
