AccountMate

AccountMate is a great product for wholesale and distributors. It manages the inventory cycles comprehensively, from purchasing to stocking, to sales and delivery. There are a great many tools available to manage inventory, properties, and financials. The availability to have third-party add-ons offers even greater opportunities to meet the needs of the end-user. The system is not really suited for certain types of service industries: legal, medical, and those businesses that invoice on time.

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.

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

      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

      AccountMate

      We use AccountMate for a number of reasons, particularly its ease of use and the ability to customize any part of the system (with source code residing on the end-user system--a HUGE advantage).

      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.
