Advanced Time Management
Advanced Time Management Attendance on Demand is so easy to use to track time worked, and categories time was worked in. It is not cumbersome as an employee and can be easily filled out in a snap while seeing totals. It is 100 times easier than any other time management tracking tool I've ever used.

Patriot PAY is well-suited to a company that has a 10-day window between the end of the pay period and the payday. The company size makes very little difference and it is easy to use for any company. It is also very progressive in development and improvement. If a company has a small window for turn-around, but fairly consistent payroll amounts (such as a lot of salary workers), Patriot PAY might also be a good fit for them.

Companies with tight turn-around times or payrolls that vary significantly in direct deposit amounts might have difficulty using Patriot PAY.

  • It allows its users to go back and check their time, see if there are any discrepancies, or if they forgot to clock in/out so that administration can be notified.
  • It allows the administration to make sure employees aren't going over with their time, and if their written time sheets correlate to their digital time (with Advanced Time Management Attendance on Demand).

Patriot Software
  • It is simple, intuitive and straightforward in its design. Someone with little experience with roles in human resources roles, bookkeeping or payroll can quickly learn how to set-up the software and run payroll regularly by reading through the support portion of the site, or by contacting the helpful staff at Patriot. Patriot staff have walked me through issues or guided me on the phone as I learned how to use a function of the software.
  • Patriot provides comprehensive quarterly tax filing records, including 941s, state unemployment compensation tax payments, state employer's tax and local employer's tax filings. You can also generate payroll or tax deposit reports over a specific time period or per employee.
  • The support and FAQ pages available on Patriot are very practical and written in an easy to understand manner. Using the information provided there, I was able to properly set up new employees according to local and state filing requirements.

Cons
Advanced Time Management
  • The time input sometimes doesn't load right away when hours are added. You have to wait a few seconds.
  • PTO and other non-worked time are in a separate section, not a category to choose from.

Patriot Software
  • Connecting with outside software - we have an issue of Patriot not recognizing donors when connected to other websites when all the information is the same minus a middle initial
  • Giving an error page when something small is off. Instead of giving an easy to fix error notification, Patriot brings the user to an error page and they have to reenter everything.
  • Fixing dates easily. If a date is entered incorrectly, 8/13/21 instead of 2021, an error pop up appears but the user has to click enter/okay many times or refresh the page in order to fix this issue.
  • Enter vs Tab key - Patriot loves the tab key but if the user clicks enter instead, many times it brings them to the home page.

I think it is great once things are setup as for general user looking to look for simple things like a copy of a paystub or a current pay rate for an employee. However, to find specialized things like a state withholding number or payroll integration settings those do require a bit more digging to find or possibly a call to customer service for help.

Generally speaking it is pretty good that when I need to call somebody up for a payroll question I can generally within five minutes get somebody on the phone and they can help me resolve the problem or specify where specifically I need to go or contact to find my answers. However, that being said, for my specific situation as a partner my assigned contact has not always been very responsive.

Advanced Time Management
I've heavily used BST Global and ProWorkflow, both of which are cumbersome in selecting where time was spent and adding it up correctly. It took hours each week to track my time. Now, it takes maybe 5 minutes with Advanced Time Management Attendance on Demand.

I briefly used Intuit Online Payroll, and it was expensive, had no support, and was very frustrating to use. I also used 3 local tax companies for payroll - they were extremely expensive and messed up all of the time. Their employee turnover was very annoying (and it seemed to happen every other month) and each employee did things differently. When I let one of my employees go, the last company paid them after termination (2 weeks of salary), and had to get into a legal battle because the employee would not give the money back.

Return on Investment
Advanced Time Management
  • Advanced Time Management Attendance on Demand has allowed our company to keep our costs down by keeping overtime down. When employees and administration alike can track the hours worked per week, it really makes it easy for everyone.
  • We really haven't seen any negative impact - the only negative is human error when employees forget to punch in or out, and it has to be manually corrected. But that isn't a programming problem, again, just human error.
