Overall Satisfaction with Square Payroll

Square is one of the most important leading solutions in our company. Square is currently being used in all sectors of our company, in order to provide us with a general administration of all the payrolls of each of the employees, with detailed information on the taxes applied and the deductions that must be made in each employee. Square is being used in our sector of Marketing, Sales, Finance, Human Resources, IT and other areas.

The main benefits that Square has given us is that it has allowed us to have a much more general and complete control of all the company's payroll, this platform provides us with the administration of the payment of each employee, we can make the payroll through this software and we can make deductions for federal, state and local taxes. Square allows me to track the hours each employee has worked, including overtime, and generates automated reports on the total hours each employee has worked. Undoubtedly, this automation has allowed me to have a much easier payroll administration.

  • Automating declared taxes is one of Square's most outstanding features. When a detailed report on the payroll of each employee is generated, the software takes care of automatically applying the taxes previously configured, which means that there is no need to make a manual deduction for each payroll.
  • The Support team has been one of the most impactful things in a positive way. Square has given me pretty efficient user support. When we started to use Square in our Marketing sector, I had several questions about the configuration of payroll, and the support of this platform answered all my questions immediately, in a live chat.
  • Square gives all of my employees and me complete control over time worked, time off, and overtime. Square provides a user panel where a constant monitoring of the work that each employee does is carried out, in order to collect the exact work time and be able to generate the payroll report.
  • Downloading payroll reports is one of Square's biggest problems. This platform works online, and all payroll reports can be viewed online but there is no way to download those reports to export them.
  • Square payments are not automated. When the reports corresponding to each payroll are generated, I must access the Square platform to be able to make the payroll payment manually and that my employees can receive the money in the next few hours in their bank account. This platform does not allow me to schedule payments.
  • Our employees can get their payroll payments faster. Previously, we took longer to make payments due to all the paperwork that needed to be done to know each employee's working time.
  • We have managed to know the effectiveness of each employee and the work time that each one has dedicated. Square collects the working hours of each employee so that we can know which employee is standing out the most and which employee is working the least, so we can keep track of potential employees and talent in the company.
  • We have saved time creating payroll reports. Payroll reports in Square are generated automatically.
We have tested the QuickBooks Online platform. Before using Square, we tried QuickBooks, but the experience we had was not to our liking. QuickBooks Online is a much more complicated platform to use, the interface is much larger and has complexity in the configuration of the collection of hours of work of the employees. In addition, QuickBooks technical support does not respond in time to users' doubts, on several occasions we had several doubts about the operation of the platform and the response was too late and inconsistent. We decided to use Square Payroll because it offered us a much more accessible UI, a simpler but more precise interface for what we needed in our company, to be able to make payroll payments and make detailed reports on the workers.

Square is an amazing platform to have total control over the payroll of all the employees of a company or a specific sector. This platform has a very good functionality to collect exact information on how long each employee works, that is one of its most outstanding characteristics, because it monitors work schedules and overtime and generates detailed reports on the work time of each employee. Square does not allow to schedule payments, that is one of the main problems, however, I consider that it is a very good option for small and medium-sized companies that are looking for a way to have more exact administrative control over the working hours of all their employees. It is a software that works in the cloud, so all the work information that is collected will remain safe without any risk of loss.
