CenterPoint Payroll

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.

Rippling is fantastic for a growing startup or an organization that includes a lot of manual to digital operational efforts, cutting them down and reducing the time as well. Some of the features, once set up, make the HR's life very seamless and day-to-day tasks very easy to execute with consistent and accurate information. However, I wouldn't recommend for a small company to use it if it has less complexity in terms of its employees, insurance policies, etc. We use it for various types of employees, from interns to consultants to C-level executives.

Cons

CenterPoint Payroll

  • Perhaps include a pop-up description of an button, or a link to the help section details, when you hover over the button for more than 3 seconds.

  • Honestly, it's the most inclusive HR program that I have used to date. It's easy to login with your Gmail account, so you never have to remember the password if you're logged into your email!
  • The ease of use is incredible as well as it flows you through the tasks you need to complete. I love it; no improvements here.

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.

Alternatives Considered

CenterPoint Payroll

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.

Once onboarded, the process is seamless. We love how it unifies everything the HR and admin prefer without unnecessary hassles, maintaining documents and files across the organization. It also has some really well-built and robust integrations, which made our lives simpler. Overall the product is very reliable and just works when executed.

Return on Investment

CenterPoint Payroll

  • 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.
