    Square

    Square is an amazing platform to have total control over the payroll of all the employees of a company or a specific sector. This platform has a very good functionality to collect exact information on how long each employee works, that is one of its most outstanding characteristics, because it monitors work schedules and overtime and generates detailed reports on the work time of each employee. Square does not allow to schedule payments, that is one of the main problems, however, I consider that it is a very good option for small and medium-sized companies that are looking for a way to have more exact administrative control over the working hours of all their employees. It is a software that works in the cloud, so all the work information that is collected will remain safe without any risk of loss.

    Square

    • 1099 contractor payments are easy, and they provide you with the IRS filing as part of the service.
    • Direct deposit/debit from your already connected account to the employee.
    • Reporting and management features are simple yet inclusive.
    • Low cost compared to alternative solutions.

    Cons

    BenefitMall

    • So far I see no disadvantages
    • I suppose they could offer health insurance group coverage as their competitors do but I did not find any cost advantage when we had it priced out with another system
    • The submit timeline is sometimes a problem because I need to submit at EST and that puts pressure on me to have done by 1 or 2 pm AZT.

    Square

    • It's a bit pricey for larger companies at $5 per person paid per month.
    • Has a bit of a learning curve that seems steeper than necessary
    • reports can be confusing at first

        It could use a mobile-friendly interface. Other than that it's a simple layout and non-cluttered which allows you to get done what you need to get done. No unnecessary dodads or distractions.

        Square

        I think they have quick and helpful customer service reps, however, I give them a 9 because I have had to wait on hold for long periods of time before.

        Alternatives Considered

        BenefitMall

        There was no place for me to track and store employees information. No HR back up. I had to email all the names and hours to my rep and hope I didn't forget anyone.

        Square

        I liked patriot, but I found it to be more confusing than Square and took me too much time to setup. I setup Square Payroll in about an hour. I would also say the Square interface made more sense to me. I also like how Square offers more things like benefits, etc. that can be added on.

        Square

        • Square Payroll has dramatically reduced the time it takes to process payroll.
        • We could have a faster payroll with the Square POS integration for commission, but that is not something we've implemented yet.
