Our Customers have great things to say about CenterPoint Payroll.
Kaci King, CFO
West Ohio Tool Co.
Kaci King is the CFO of the family owned West Ohio Tool Co., a company that manufactures cutting tools. In 2012, their company was seeking a new accounting system. They wanted the ability to easily track “ travelers”, another way of saying that they wanted to be able to associate time with job costing and job tracking. They selected Shoptech′s E2 Shop System software as their new accounting system. Because there was a direct interface to CenterPoint Payroll from E2 Shop System, they decided to also make a switch from their payroll system to CenterPoint Payroll.
“Before we switched to CenterPoint Payroll, we weren′t even aware of all the payroll problems it would solve for us. You don′t know what you don′t know, and it fixed issues we didn′t even know we had. Once we switched to CenterPoint Payroll, we were able to easily implement direct deposit to pay employees, rather than printing checks, something our prior system was missing. CenterPoint also has automatic tax updates, including local tax updates, so we no longer had to go in and update that information manually, which became a huge time saver. We were also amazed at how much easier the entire process of payroll in general became, and especially the processing of tax forms like W-2s. We do have some employees with child support withholdings, another thing CenterPoint greatly simplified for us.
Moving to CenterPoint Payroll was a great move for us as a manufacturer. Making the switch took a giant load off our backs. We rarely have any issues with CenterPoint Payroll, but when we do, we just call their support team, and it is such a blessing. Every time we call in, there′s a warm voice and they are able to help us quickly get issues resolved. CenterPoint is honestly inexpensive for what you get. Put it this way, there′s way more value than cost. We have no desire to ever look for another payroll system.”
Sara Jensen, Vice President Jensen′s Manufacturing
Sara Jensen is the Vice President at Jensen′s Manufacturing, a job shop in Manchester, Minnesota. Having used other payroll systems over the years, Sara switched from an older system to CenterPoint Payroll in 2019, when their prior system became outdated.
“The thing I like most about CenterPoint Payroll is that, it can handle what we need to be doing in payroll as a job shop, and it is SO EASY to use! I mean, it takes me three minutes to run payroll. We have two salaried and two to three hourly employees. We recently switched to the cloud version of CenterPoint, and I′m very pleased that I will now be able to run payroll from home, or wherever I am. We will also be implementing Red Wing Software′s Time Clock Kiosk, putting it on the job floor, so employees will be able to clock in from a shared device. This will save the employees time, and I will no longer have to import time manually. The Red Wing Software Support team is great – if needed, they can log in remotely to my computer and give me the help I need.
I encourage people who are afraid to make a change to just do it. I was amazed when I made the switch, and I wondered why I didn′t do it sooner. I would never, ever consider changing to a different payroll system!”
