DATIS

Our agency has a number of federal and private grants tied to personnel costs and allocations. DATIS e3 is extraordinary at allowing the end user to slice information as needed for complex reporting.

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.

Pros

DATIS

  • Position management
  • Payroll solutions
  • Open Enrollment/benefits management
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

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

DATIS

  • Supervision documentation is difficult to use if the supervisor doesn’t adhere to the rigid schedule
  • Applicant site doesn’t automatically integrate with outside recruitment tools, so tracking of recruitment data is complicated.
  • DATIS has struggled with customer service support unless you have a dedicated contact
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

Patriot Software

  • Setting up a bank account to pay employees thru ACH is cumbersome.
  • Doesn't have the option to print multiple pay stubs for a specific employee at once. Have to re-print each pay stub individually.

Alternatives Considered

DATIS

DATIS e3 is a different kind of system that may not be the solution for someone who is looking for an “off the shelf” solution. It is flexible and customizable to meet the specific needs of your organization. It is robust and thorough. They could benefit from spending money on a mobile solution.
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

Patriot Software

QuickBooks Online Payroll is literally the devil. They make things unclear, very difficult to tell what has been filed and what has been missed, hard to adjust owner salary whenever you want. I hate it! Gusto is more robust than Patriot and so for bigger companies with more going on, I am referring people to Gusto, but it's also a lot more expensive. Intuit Payroll is just archaic.

Return on Investment

DATIS

  • DATIS has allowed us to spend less time on payroll processing and accounting of payroll
  • Better grant management allowing us to minimize the risk of unclaimed revenue
Tami Lewis-Ahrendt, PHR, SHRM-PC | TrustRadius Reviewer

Patriot Software

  • It boosts my time available for client-facing activities by not having to spend as much time processing payroll.
  • It helps me deliver accurate reports to my CPA at tax time regarding employee wages and employer taxes.
  • Through the online portal, I can easily track year-to-date taxes my company has paid.
