Comments: If you are accustomed to using in house payroll and are looking for a good software. I highly recommend Center Point Payroll. The Aatrix solution for tax filing is terrific.

Pros: Ability to do direct deposit for checks, and the Aatrix tax form preparation feature.

Cons: Still waiting for a time and attendance partner solution.

Comments: In 2013 we switched our accounting system to a "shop system" which did not come with a payroll package. The "shop" system was a nightmare but they recommended CenterPoint payroll and I have been very pleased with the ease of use and the support I received getting it set up. I like it very much.

Pros: Ease of use. When I have had to call support they have always been able to answer my questions and are very pleasant.

Cons: I have not figured out how to eliminate inactive employees from the employee list when running a new payroll but I have not taken the time to call support to see if there is a way because I only have three.

Comments: I have found CenterPoint Payroll a very good solution for easily producing payrolls and tracking the information we want to see in our business.

Pros: CenterPoint Payroll allows me to pay my employees, keep track of specific information about fields worked in, equipment used, department tracking, etc. It stays current with tax changes and allows deductions and has a variety of reports to mine information for tax reporting and payments and business analysis.

Cons: Unless I've missed it, I can't change the order the checks print in.

Comments: it's a comprehensive flexible program that lets you personalize it many ways.
However, personally I have an issue I have not been able to resolve (even after contact with the support group...) . I need the program to calculate a garnish with a limit of 65% of NET pay... it seems no matter what I do it calculates 65 % of GROSS pay. (Frustrating!)

Pros: Comprehensive.

Margareta,
Thank you for your review of CenterPoint Payroll. I am sorry to hear about the issue you are having with the wage garnishment calculations. I have checked into this issue with the support team, and here is their response:

You can setup a garnishment to calculate as a percentage of net pay by using the type="garnishment" on the deduction setup. On the employee's setup in the rate, you would enter the percent (65%), which would be the limit - it will never take more than 65% of net pay for the garnishment. Using the garnishment type for the deduction also allows you to set up a dollar amount limit (in the "up to amount" cell) and a minimum of net pay. So if 65% doesn't allow the employee to have enough "take-home" pay the deduction can be stopped before it reaches that percentage.

I hope this helps! If you would like more information, our support team will be happy to help you. Thank you for doing this review and for being a Red Wing Software customer!

Stephanie
