Overall Satisfaction with Payroll by Wave

Payroll by Wave is great, easy to use, intuitive payroll software. As a single owner/employee, I don't have need for a large scale or complicated system, and Wave offers a perfect solution at a very reasonable price point. Its easy to set up, and the customer support is top notch. It's literally just a few clicks of the mouse and payroll is taken care of.
  • Time-saving: Everything is saved from one pay period to the next so it's very easy to click and run.
  • Great price: Perfect for smaller businesses who don't need the extra bells and whistles
  • Customer support: Any questions are addressed quickly, set up was a breeze.
  • Can't think of any!
  • Peace of mind that all the payroll tax-related stuff is taken care of accurately and on time.
  • Easy to use interface saves time and helps ensure I am paid on time.
Similar features, similar pricing. I selected Wave initially because my accounting is integrated with the other Wave software.
Quick response times, personalized service. They offer in-depth videos and guides for helping to get set up. Any time I have a question about taxes or reporting, they answer quickly and give comprehensive answers. Members of the team with whom I've interacted have been courteous, friendly, and helpful. Overall, great support.

Great for small business payroll needs. Reports and taxes are taken care of, everything is automated and once you're set up it's literally just a matter of minutes to run payroll each time. You also get email reminders which is helpful. There are premium features available for companies with larger/more robust needs, and I would definitely recommend looking into this software if you are searching for a user friendly payroll solution.
