We have full-featured payroll, time & attendance and accounting modules among others in our construction ERP solution. It's all written for FileMaker 13 and is subscription based. We're in the final stages of beta testing and are therefore still in "stealth" mode; so you won't find much publically about it yet. Drop me a line to see if it's compatible with your unique needs.
I've used Checkmark Payroll and found it to quite sufficient.
I did however write a payroll program currently Filemaker 11, for the Mac.
I modified an older Filemaker payroll app that ran one check at a time so I could enter
batches of hours and process all at once. I wanted to be all Filemaker.
Let me know if your interested.
As much as I'd like to be all Filemaker, trying to reproduce the forms (941, 940, W-2's, and state) might be a little too much. Does yours have the forms included?
I have the 941, and W2's setup but I've not developed the 940 which should be fairly easy
considering all the data is there from the W2's which is easily filed online. Each year I add the new 941, and W2 forms into
the software as pdf's and adjust, if necessary any of the fields. I use the actual downloaded forms from the
IRS. The IRS makes slight annual changes, like for example the Health Care Act etc.
Also, I have set up only the Mass State Tax Tables, as that's all we needed, you'd have to setup your own
for Omaha, Nebraska, or for the state your client would need.
Like I said, we tailored the old software for our needs and it's been running smoothly for the past 5 years
without a hitch.
Contact me back channel if you'd like to see it.
I have a small number of people in my organisation which I manage using an adapted starter solution. I would like to incorporate salary payments into that solution.
I would be interested in seeing how your Payroll application was written and implemented, if that is possible.
I've checked out "Checkmark" and found it to be very good. We start using it January 1 and will be dumping Quickbooks. My company has a program called Quick Trial Balance that is primarily for professional accountants, but it has the ability to handle cash receipts and disbursements and generate a general ledger. We'll be posting payroll "after-the-fact" from Checkmarks into our Quick Trial Balance program.
We may even add an option in QTB to import directly from Checkmark since their data files are Sqlite as are our QTB data files.
Thanks for recommending Checkmark. I think it's the best I've looked at so far.
