2009 Product Review: Payroll Mate by Real Business Solutions
Real Business Solutions was incorporated in Illinois and launched its first product: Sales Tax Mate in 2003. This was soon followed by the release of W2 Mate in 2004 and Payroll Mate in 2006. Payroll Mate payroll software is an affordable payroll program for small businesses, yet it is also powerful enough to be used by accounting firms to prepare payroll for their clients at the accountant’s office. Clients can call, fax, or e-mail their information in for accountant staff to enter.
The base package costs $99, supports 10 companies with up to 75 employees per company, and includes preparation of 941, 944, 940, W-2 and W-3 forms on preprinted forms. All of the most important functionality is included in the base package, making it an affordable on-site payroll solution for even the smallest clients.
Nancy Dweik, marketing manager of Real Business Solutions, Inc. said, “For as little as $99.00 a year small businesses and professionals alike have access to a stand-alone comprehensive payroll solution.”
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
