Patriot Is Trusted by Tens of Thousands of Businesses to Streamline Their Payroll


We love Patriot! It makes it so easy to process tax documents, payroll, keep up with hours, and employee portals. The employees can log in to their portal and receive tax documents and their direct deposits. It really keeps bookkeeping at a minimum and gives me more time to spend building the store and spending time with customers.

Ashley LaBarre, Tropical Envy Boutique


... [Patriot is] Simple, easy, and user-friendly. It’s intuitive and really doesn’t take me long. I was worried about all the tip income we deal with and all we had to do with it, but it’s very easy.

Kelsey Daniels, Flights Wine Bar


It simplifies the whole process. Where before we were clocking time and trying to keep track in Excel spreadsheets and determine tax liabilities, I just didn’t have time to do that stuff. So, Patriot allows us to log the numbers, and it spits out all the numbers of what we owe per check and for the taxes.

Jon Kehl, Crown Community Garden


We have three employees, so it takes me a minute to a minute and a half every other Friday to run payroll. That’s a time-saver that I can just not beat. And, it’s a headache I do not have. I’ve done my own payroll before, and I’ll never go back to it!

Michael Gee, Zen Dog Mobile Groom Spa, LLC


I just put in our employee’s information, and they took care of the rest ... just the ease of having employees and knowing all the paperwork would be right, and I wouldn’t need to figure it out. As we continued to add employees, [Patriot] made it easier and easier to know everything was being done right. That brought peace of mind.

Julee, Heartisans Marketplace


Patriot’s Full Service Payroll makes it easier to handle a lot of our tasks. It makes running payroll a lot simpler, cheaper, and faster for us as a small business.

John Feghali, Toaster Party


I don’t have to spend more than a few minutes every other week to run payroll. I find the platform is easy to use. And, support has been really good any time I’ve had any issues.

Steve Sentner, Paw & Order


We’re very small, so the biggest factor for us was the cost of payroll software. I didn’t want to pay for a big program that we didn’t need and I also do accounting, so Basic Payroll was the perfect fit for us. Overall, the price and the user-friendly website were the big factors for me.

Gail Horn, The Soap Chest


One of our biggest concerns of opening a business was needing to employ others and be compliant with all things that are required. Patriot has made that one of the easiest things!! Some simple data entry to set up a new employee and then a few minutes each pay period to enter the hours worked, and Patriot takes care of the rest.
