How it works

Run your payroll in minutes.

Run payroll as many times as you need to each month — we don’t charge extra. Your team gets paid in just a few clicks. And you can even set it on AutoPilot™.

Sync your team’s hours automatically.
We summarize everything so you can review.
Submit! Your team’s pay is on the way.

Pricing plans start at just $46/month

Choose from a variety of plans and add-ons. You won’t pay a cent until you’re ready to run payroll.

Payroll taxes

Your payroll taxes, filed automatically.

We don’t just calculate your taxes, we file them with the right government agencies every time you run payroll.

Other providers charge for this — with us, it’s included.

Integrated platform

Everything you need, synced with payroll.

All our features work together seamlessly on one platform — health insurance, 401(k), workers’ comp, time tracking, PTO, and more.

We play nice with others too.
