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.

While Centerpoint Payroll does our payroll well, it is seriously lacking in the reporting capabilities. Most of the reports are designed to be printed to paper and are not conducive to exporting into excel in a meaningful way. When exporting to excel reports need to be in a row and column format. By this I mean that a single row will be for a single record where the report will have many columns for each of the data elements for that single records. Most of the reports cannot do this. Give us a report writer or let us use a reporting tool such as crystal reports.

The second half of my criticism is that Redwing does not offer a HR module that ties in with the payroll module. Human Resource modules share much of the same data with payroll systems. Redwing should recognize the unmet need and build a module.

Response from Red Wing Software

John,
Thank you for your review of CenterPoint Payroll. I talked to support and they suggested an option to export raw data to .csv. Also, our new online time clock may solve the HR functions you mentioned. For anything it does not solve, we can enter them in as suggestions for improvement. Please contact support; they are aware of our correspondence and want to help. Thank you.

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.

Response from Red Wing Software

Wow, Jane, thank you so much for taking the time to write this glowing review! It is great to hear that you are loving CenterPoint Payroll. Whenever you are ready, just give our support team a call and we will help you figure out the inactive employees. Thanks again!

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.

Response from Red Wing Software

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
