Accountant Payroll Software: Product vs. Cloud-Based Solutions

Cloud-based software services claim to offer unmatched versatility for accountant payroll software. Yet, with a smart catalog of software modules—like the one available from Advanced Micro Solutions—the difference is negligible, and the claim itself is suspect.

Our W-2/1099 Forms Filer and Payroll module provide all the essential features accountants are looking for within an accessible, menu-driven platform. This powerful, yet intuitive, solution can then be built upon, and customized for, your accounting business. Simply add on whichever AMS modules make sense for your clients’ needs:

  • Software Generated Forms
  • Affordable Care Act Filer
  • AMS E-File Direct
  • Forms Filer Plus

Cost-Effective Accountant Payroll Software

We find in a lot of areas that the lack of a truly reliable Internet connection makes onsite software features essential for uninterrupted payroll services. Better yet, unlike subscription- and transaction-based fees, you can leverage greater payroll volume at a significantly lower price point overall. For $208, our software platform and payroll module supports up to 1,999 payers and up to 9,999 employees per payer.

Here’s something else that relatively few cloud-based accounting software solutions offer—the ability to print your own MICR checks. Our Software Generated Forms module delivers this capability, as well as software support for printing virtually all of your tax and filing forms right there at the office. You can even schedule large-batch printing jobs that can be completed overnight.

Finally, we understand that to offer the best possible solution for all of our accounting clients, some types of cloud-based software services are necessary. For this reason, we’ve partnered with a third-party software vendor who can handle your cloud-based e-file service needs. And yet, we’ve also developed our own E-File Direct module for the majority of accounting businesses that take care of their own e-filing services.

Discover the Advantages of AMS Software

At the same time, it’s true that you don’t want to invest your time and budget on software products that don’t fit with your business model. Likewise, you don’t want to develop a relationship with a software developer who may have the products you need this year, but can’t keep up with your expanding and evolving accounting business. We keep our products up to date with the latest tax tables and state-level payroll processing. We’re also constantly on the lookout and in development for new products that can help respond to future needs for accountant payroll software. Again, with our latest ACA Filer, you can get be sure to comply with new Affordable Care Act rules and requirements the first time around.
