Overall Satisfaction with Patriot Software

Full Payroll for employees and 1099 contractors.
  • Rapid entry of standardized payroll in 3 easy screens
  • Easy entry of 1099 contractor payments
  • Friendly intuitive web based solution
  • Helpful and knowledgable customer support
  • Feature Rich, does most basic functions
  • Good payroll and 1099 contractor report generation
  • Does not support 401K plan integration as well as other vendors
  • Will not pay other vendors that are deductions from payroll like 401K vendor
  • Patriot is cost effective at the full payroll and partial payroll levels. I have used both
Quickbooks is more expensive and not as easy

Would you buy Patriot Software again?


Its easy and intuitive with support that is really good, but rarely needed.
In 3 years I have needed support maybe 3 times and it has been unusual situations that I felt was appropriate to reach out for help and they were ready with answers.
I think Patriot works best for companies that need cost-effective, self-managed, and fairly vanilla payroll needs. There are solution providers out there that have more full-featured offerings and higher prices, but this has met my needs as I was the only employee, then it still works as I have grown to five 1099 and two employees, but in time I may outgrow it.
