Overall Satisfaction with Toast Payroll & Team Management, formerly StratEx

Toast Payroll and Team Management is a payroll service with a very narrow niche. Toast Payroll and Team Management is a software geared specifically to restaurant businesses and was considered for a client of mine. The software does a great job for restaurants, however, the larger named payroll services can provide the same services at a lower cost.
  • Tip splitting
  • Payroll by class
  • Specific reports
  • Fees
  • Accounting integration and syncing
  • Tip splitting
  • Geared reports
  • Timely pay
  • Great reports and analytics
  • Moderately high fees
  • Convenience
Toast Payroll and Team Management does well in its niche, knowing what people in the restaurant business want and need. They produce reports more geared to that industry that arguably is better than Paychex. Paychex, however, is a larger company that services all industries that can handle the needs of a restaurant business at a lower cost.

Would you buy Toast Payroll & Team Management again?


Toast Payroll and Team Management is great for people in the restaurant business that have trouble keeping record of tips and splitting tips among several employees. Restaurant business can also print reports by category to see earnings by type of employee. The software is niched to mainly restaurants, so any other industry would typically not use Toast Payroll.
