How CenterPoint Payroll is Different
CenterPoint Payroll stands apart from other payroll programs with the below features that are not found in basic packages, and won′t cost you a bundle like they would in the complex, more expensive packages:

- Direct deposit*
CenterPoint direct deposit provides features that can help streamline payroll processes, save you money, and keep employees happy.
- Pay some or all employees via direct deposit, to an unlimited number of accounts.
- File direct deposit with your own bank, as compared with other systems requiring you to use their costly direct deposit service, potentially saving your company thousands of dollars per year.
- For employees without bank accounts, use the option of paying employees with prepaid debit cards, through our partner, smartOne Pay Card.
- Deposit funds for employee deductions directly to third party payees, such as HSA or 401K management companies.
- Publish Pay Advice Module
The Publish Pay Advice module provides a secure Web site where employees who receive direct deposit, can view an electronic version of their pay advice.
- Tax filing made easy-even multi-state
All State and Federal tax reports are included in CenterPoint Payroll, so there is no need to check and see which states are included. You can also set up your local taxes in the system.
The system generates tax reports, and you choose whether to:
- Print forms on blank paper, file and distribute yourself.
- File forms electronically, directly from the system.
- Have forms printed, filed, and distributed for you directly from the system.
- Extremely flexible time entry and processing methods
Paying employees has never been so easy! Choose to enter pay from timesheets, pull hours directly from your time clock*, or set up and use payroll defaults, making pay entry automatic for each pay run. You can enter pay for salaried and hourly employees separately, or even copy pay from previous pay runs.
*CenterPoint can work with most time clocks that can export an ASCII File format.
- Easy tracking and entry of pay to multiple variables you choose (e.g. location, profit center, department, and more)
Allows for more accurate payroll data and faster time entry. Run reports to quickly see labor expenses by department, location, and more!
- Employee Training/Certification Tracking*
Keep track of training and certifications earned by employees with the Employee Certification Tracking option. Track training completion and expiration dates as well as additional notes. All training and certification information is tracked within the “Education” tab for each employee.
- Check Designer*
The check designer module works with both the Accounts Payable and Payroll check printing.
- Modify a check stub
- Modify a check and incorporate a logo
- Print MICR coding on a check (works with blank check stock)
- Print up to two signatures on a check.
- Custom user interface
Easily set up a user interface to show only those menu selections you use most often in a “Quick List”, saving significant time.
- Excellent support from U.S. based professionals who really understand payroll
