3rd party payroll processing

    Wondering if anyone has any recent experience or feedback on working with Paychex and how they integrate with Sage?  I am looking at the possibility of outsourcing our payroll processing and looking at some of their other HR features as well. I am interested in hearing how others handle their HR and payroll processes - do you handle it in house or outsource it.  And if you outsource who do you use?

    Hi Theresa,
    We use ADP, but have had SIGNIFICANT issues with them.  I would avoid at all costs because they are not responsive and have not filed reports that are necessary.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.  We are thinking of changing to Paychex but have not made the move yet.

    Morning Theresa,
      We outsource to ADP and they have a Manager Report that creates the GL Upload into Sage - it also has a job cost feature that we import to Sage as well.  We have had to build quite a bit of customization with them and their certified payroll provider, IDI.  Now that all the customization is in, it flows pretty smoothly.  We are always looking for a back up, as ADP has gone thru some upgrades that make our review more difficult, but in the meantime they work  well.

    Hope this helps and feel free to reach out if you have additional questions.

    We use Paylocity and have another third party HR/payroll admin firm who assists us.  We still review payroll before processing, but we aren't entering the time anymore or chasing people down for missing information.  We are using Sage 100 (Moving to Sage 300) and the Paylocity platform is such a massive improvement.  Like others, we have a data file that comes from our third party firm that we use to create the journal entry to post in Sage.
