Our payroll requirements are unique, and a critical part of our buying decision was the ability to pay directly from an imported file vs manual data entry into the system. With payroll being time sensitive, this is a big plus.

Lilly EstradaHuman Resource & Payroll Mgr. | C&O Nursery

Flexibility in customization, unlimited users, support from our provider and access from any device were top reasons for our satisfaction.

Game changer for us was the ability to set-up a Finished Good Item with its Bill of Materials, issue a Production PO, and issue several component level POs from various manufacturers that are all tied together. No more manual reconciliation.
