A payroll computer system comprises a range of software tools. For businesses who have digital accounting systems, various software tools are installed across their network of computers. These tools can include anything from payroll and forms filers to electronic form generators and revenue tracking.
If your small business has not yet invested in a payroll system, we recommend making the switch. A computer system helps users avoid common payroll mistakes, retain payroll records, and use the payroll method that works best for your small business. While these tools cost money, the return on investment – both in time and in the labor cost of completing manual payroll – is well worth the effort.
What is Computerized Payroll?
Computerized payroll, sometimes called automatic payroll, automates what might have once been done with a calculator. These tools automatically calculate wages and associated payroll taxes. This includes federal, state, and local tax obligations. A payroll computer system also prints paychecks or facilitates direct deposit processing to pay employees correctly and on time. Small businesses typically choose to run this payroll themselves, as hiring external help is often too large of a financial burden.
However, many computerized payroll systems are too robust for small businesses. In most cases, these businesses end up paying more for tools they don’t use. This can eat into a business’s bottom line. While opting for payroll software will often save money over manual options, it can be a large and reluctant purchase for a small company.
Purchasing a personalized software is the trick to finding a payroll computer system that works for you. This is exactly what AMS offers. AMS Payroll, our payroll tool, is an add-on module to our W-2/1099 Forms Filer. But if you don’t need payroll, you don’t need to buy it.

Small business owners can pick and choose the services they need to build a fully customized accounting tool – all without the high cost usually associated with customization.
