“We find your integrated timekeeping and payroll easy to use and more accurate than the time sheets we were using. My time is now freed up to take care of my patients and other aspects of my business. Thanks for making the transition to outsourcing my payroll easy and cost effective.”
-B W – Westmoreland, DDS, Johnson City, TN

“We had been doing payroll in-house for years and was looking for a cost effective alternative. Your systems and services have been able to provide us with information and reports we were not able to produce with our old system. You have freed our time to concentrate on more important accounting aspects of our business. With the excellent services you provide, we would not consider any other payroll processing system.”
-Kwick-Way Transportation Co, Gray, TN

“As a former customer of one of those big national firms, not only does Time & Pay perform better in the payroll processing area with better products and services, but you are also way ahead of them in the customer service area. It is a pleasure working with your staff knowing that any help we need is readily available.”
-C – Comprehensive Community Services, Johnson City, TN

“Opening up a large retail operation, the last thing I wanted to concern myself with was payroll and all the compliance hassles. Time & Pay takes care of all my payroll needs. With their services, my payroll worries are eliminated. We would recommend your services to any one.”
-D K – DW Express LLC, Bristol, VA

“We have been using Time & Pay for a number of years. Their customer service is outstanding. I would recommend their products and services to anyone looking to get the most out of the payroll process and stay compliant with federal and multi-state payroll regulations.”
-M W – Royal Brass, Knoxville, TN

“We had been doing our payroll in-house. When we reviewed your products and services, we found them to be both affordable and cost-effective. The transition to Time & Pay went very smoothly. We are very confident our payroll tax issues and confidentiality issues are now a thing of the past.”
-S T – D & S Dental, Johnson City, TN

“As a new company to Johnson City, we were glad to find a local quality payroll service provider. We had used a national provider in Florida and were well aware of the advantages of outsourcing. Time & Pay offers all that the big national firms provide and more, including local, prompt and courteous customer service!”
-K H – JD Squared, Johnson City, TN

“Time & Pay does a great job handling both our corporate and independent store accounts. The flexibility of their on-line capabilities gives us the information we need when we need it. Their response to our diverse needs has been excellent.”
-B G – HobbyTown USA, Omaha, Nebraska

“From the start, Time & Pay has worked with us in many aspects of payroll and HR as we have grown from a single facility to a multi-state operation. They have allowed us to concentrate on that expansion while they have focused on keeping us compliant with payroll and timekeeping regulations. There customer service is exemplary! They are great to work with.”
-J G – Prime Choice Foods, Denver, CO

A while back, the state came to our office to audit our payroll records. When the auditor found out Time & Pay did our payroll, she stopped, packed her briefcase and informed us there was no need for the audit. She was very confident we were compliant.
-K B – GR&P Co. Bristol, TN
