Evolution Payroll

We have a small company with very simple needs. This software meets those needs, but it looks like it is capable of doing so much more than what we use it for. I typically use only a few screens and a few reports. It is very well suited for our needs, but I don't know the full functionality of the system due to our limited needs.

Wagepoint

I highly recommend Wagepoint, especially for start-up companies. Their fees are really cheap and the quality of their work is really good. They may have room for improvement on the reporting side, but given their flexibility, they can always find a way to help your organization. I definitely recommend Wagepoint.

Cons

Evolution Payroll

  • One problem it has is if you try to cut multiple checks for a person (sometimes) it creates an error which requires assistance from the processor to get it straightened out.
  • You need to pay close attention when reviewing prior to submitting. Sometimes if you think you saved something it might not have saved it and if you don't catch it before you submit, it requires assistance to get corrected up to and including voiding a check and re-issuing.
  • In my opinion, it's somewhat expensive. I have been looking at other providers who would use a different system, and they seem to be significantly cheaper. That may not be a direct correlation to the software but to the provider.
  • I don't know if it is capable of allowing a user to create new reports, but if it doesn't, that would be something to consider as a missing functionality.
  • I haven't found an area that allows for tracking pay increases. We simply overwrite a persons rate of pay when we give a raise, so there is no tracking of the date a raise was given or a comparison showing what they made prior to or when the last raise was given. (That I am aware of).

Wagepoint

  • Reports need to be improve. You cannot customize your preferred report. Thus, manual reporting happens at times. But you can't complain on the cost.
  • Flexibility on late notice of payroll processing. Lowering additional fees could help us.
  • Need to ask clients for feedback on the use of system.

Evolution is provided by our current third party payroll processor. We are currently considering changing processors, because of increased prices and competition is priced significantly lower.

Evolution Payroll

This is the first payroll software I have used. My prior experience was keeping track of the various aspects of a really simple payroll (no benefits at all) in PeachTree 20 plus years ago, so I am unable to provide a comparison.

Wagepoint

Wagepoint is great for our Canadian employees, as Gusto does not support multi-national workforces. However, Gusto provides a much more robust system with which you can manage employees salaries, healthcare benefits, and additional benefits. Gusto also provides ample data with which to evaluate costs, understand employees, and forecast future costs, which Wagepoint does not support.

Return on Investment

Evolution Payroll

  • Considering this company was processing payroll manually and keeping track of all of the items in handwritten ledgers prior to using this software, I would think the impact has been substantially beneficial, just in time and effort savings.
  • The company bought into this service about 20 years prior to my joining them. So, I don't know when they accomplished ROI.
  • My company didn't purchase the software, they use it because the payroll processor uses it as their payroll system. So, there is not traditional ROI, as they never purchased the software.

Wagepoint

  • Lower payroll administration expenses
  • Time and effort is saved from filing remittances to relevant government bodies.
  • Timely and accurate reporting of our payroll
