SAN FRANCISCO (April 10, 2013)ZenPayroll, Inc., today announced the launch of ZenPayroll for Accountants, making its delightful, modern approach to payroll available to CPAs and other back-office service providers through a new centralized online dashboard.

  • Add new clients seamlessly, in 10-15 minutes

  • Create payroll reports in just a few clicks

  • Review each company's usage and statistics, such as number of employees, their employment status and recent pay

  • Create multiple admin accounts and provide individual logins to the employees of their clients

“Our mission is to bring modern software to the payroll industry, and a key stakeholder for us are the hundreds of thousands of accountants and bookkeepers who run the back-office for their clients. These service providers work hard to ensure payroll is completed on time and we're thrilled to make their life easier,” said Joshua Reeves, CEO, ZenPayroll. “ZenPayroll for Accountants empowers all back-office service providers to offer delightful, modern payroll to their clients, and the centralized dashboard streamlines the process of managing payroll across dozens of companies.”
