CenterPoint Payroll has been excellent for our company, with approximately 150 employees. I can certainly see it being excellent for smaller companies and larger companies. I don't know if there is a size of company at which it would become difficult or limiting to use - I can't foresee any of the functions or features becoming limiting factors as company size increases. To a certain extent, I could see the robustness of CenterPoint being a bit more than what is necessary for a tiny company of less than 5 employees, but it would certainly be able to do what is required for them.

I am able to track which of my clients have paid their invoices and which have not. The number of days that the EPAY invoice is outstanding is easily accessible. The date the original invoice was sent is displayed. The initial form to complete in order to send the EPAY is so simple a caveman can do it. Just need the client's name, email, and the amount of the invoice. The automated follow-up emails to the clients who have not paid are helpful.

  • All-time punches are rounded to 15-minute intervals which can skew accurate break times.
  • Slow lading or occasional lags due to server overload.
  • Sync errors cause occasional overlapping punches.

Because I can't give it a Zero, I believe EPAY Systems is the most senseless system I have ever used. I worked on systems over 25 years ago that were better. In my opinion, there is no logic to the programming; the system is unbelievably SLOW, and there and hundreds of problems every week. And major ones that they will not or can not correct. For example, we can not file or access employee records in the system as it can take longer than 10 minutes to view or load one document for one employee - IF the system allows you to get that far, which it usually doesn't.

Support Rating

CenterPoint support is excellent! While I have not had to use them frequently, as the program is consistently stable and has few, if any, bugs, the times I have had to reach out to tech support, they have been excellent and have solved our issues quickly. They listen to our explanation of the problems, can dial into our system to see exactly what we're seeing in real time, and have always been able to quickly determine the issue, work out a solution, and help us through the process until we've got everything back in line. They are friendly, courteous, professional, kind and very knowledgeable of their products. This is absolutely one of the best things about CenterPoint - even though we seldom need it, when we do, they are always quick to get us through the issue.

I feel the support is terrible. We have an outsourced support purpose who doesn't understand the EPAY Systems or our company, [removed], will only answer the first thing mentioned even if there is an entire list. Then the answer does not solve the 1st problem on the list or any other and has no idea how to help us. We have requested a replacement and were told we would get one, then told later we would not. I believe while the support person is nice, I believe they were not trained or supported on their end, and effectiveness is probably 1% or less, takes forever, and is only on the minor issues.

Alternatives Considered

We selected CenterPoint Payroll because of our dissatisfaction with ADP (and Paychex prior). We wanted a solution that we controlled internally, instead of having to be at the mercy of some huge company that saw us as a tiny fish in a big ocean. We set our company's configuration, add/define all of our own specific settings, profiles, etc. and simply process payroll. We print and sign our own checks, process our own direct deposits directly with our bank, and can handle our own business needs. When we were with ADP and Paychex before, both companies made promises to us that they simply were either unwilling or unable to fulfill. We have saved both time and money by doing our payrolls ourselves with CenterPoint.

Our main reason for switching to Blueforce is
that we found the platform to be pretty promising and interactive than other
alternatives. With other alternatives, there was one issue or another which just
used to not give us a very smooth and subtle experience. Thankfully, this tool
has solved all our problems and has been a godsend gift that does its job
quietly and lets the final results make the noise.

Return on Investment
Red Wing Software
  • CenterPoint Payroll has saved us tens of thousands of dollars from our prior arrangement with ADP, while providing either similar or superior support.
  • Having payroll completely in our control has simplified a LOT of our daily routines - if something needs to be updated or adjusted, we do it ourselves instead of contacting someone at ADP and hoping that they can do it for us, then getting frustrated when they haven't.
