Compared to other payroll software companies, Advanced Micro Solutions (AMS) is best known for the W-2/1099 Forms Filer that provides the foundational platform on which the rest of our software features—including AMS Payroll—is based. And while our payroll solution uses a slightly different setup and screen display, it’s still part of the module interaction created by the W-2/1099 Forms Filer. This module interaction is a huge component of what AMS has to offer your payroll department or independent accounting firm.
Here are some specific points to think about as you size up different payroll software companies.
Versatility and Custom Solutions: This module interaction enables you to select the most popular software resources to address your form preparation, filing requirements, and data reporting priorities. Along with AMS Payroll, choose among Software-Generated Forms, e-filing software, ACA Forms Filer, 1042-S Filer, and Forms Filer Plus. At the same time, the underlying W-2/1099 platform ensures that you can add new software capabilities and filing support in future years without the need to make major changes.
Affordable Dependability: Some payroll software companies are going to try to lure you with misleading prices, free gimmicky introductions that hold no real value, or subscriptions fees that hide the true cost of the software over the long run. Other companies over-charge for their software, or offer only strict software packages that require you to pay for features and form filing support that you don’t need.
Software Demo, Sales Information, and Customer Support: AMS is committed to delivering a superior level of customer service from day one. This includes an introduction to our software system that you can understand. It works to our advantage when our prospective clients make informed buying decisions. To see our payroll software in action, sign up for a free demo. You can also talk to our Sales and Information team for specific questions you may have or as a personal guide to building your software package. And just in case, we maintain email communications, a tech support line, and Live Chat feature.
Collaborating with other Payroll Software Companies: Not even our wide selection of software modules can fit every single payroll and tax filing priority. We’ve developed our own E-File Direct software solution for companies with high-volume e-filing needs and the resources to make the potential cost savings worth the trouble for your company. But we’ve also partnered with a third-party software service for those business clients with more limited e-filing needs.
