What to Look for in Payroll Software Providers

Comparing payroll software providers is overwhelming when you’re not sure what to prioritize. Payroll systems come in a range of options, offering distinct tools based on location, company size, and worker types. As you prepare to make a new software investment, ask yourself a couple of important questions: Does your business fall short in any payroll management areas? What tools will allow your business to improve these weekly, monthly, or annual tasks?

Advanced Micro Solutions offers affordable payroll services for both small and large businesses. Our software is available modularly. This means customers can add additional products onto the base platform, the W-2/1099 Forms Filer, to build a customized suite. Our accounting and payroll software, AMS Payroll, is among the most popular. If you’re looking for an affordable yet customizable accounting tool, Advanced Micro Solutions has what you need.



What Makes AMS Payroll Unique?

There are many popular payroll services out there. Advanced Micro Solutions is unique from other service providers because of our wide-ranging modular system. We are proud to offer six distinct add-on modules with the base W-2/1099 Forms Filer.

Payroll Module Your payroll department can track payroll and report federal, state, and local payroll taxes for all 50 states. The business can also print W-2s and 1099s onto the pre-printed forms.

Software Generated Forms Module Narrow down payroll software providers and use the module to print forms onto plain white paper. You will not need to buy any pre-printed forms.

E-File Direct Module Businesses can file an unlimited amount of Forms W-2 and 1099. You can electronically file the forms directly to the Internal Revenue Service or the Social Security Administration.

Forms Filer Plus Module Input certain information for your miscellaneous forms by using the Forms Filer Plus module.

Affordable Care Act Filer Module Record relevant information as you prepare to file Forms 1094, 1095-B, and 1095-C. The payroll team or individual payroll specialist can use AMS’ e-filer to submit the forms through a third-party vendor.

1042-S Filer Module Use the module to fill out Form 1042-S and print the documents using purchased, pre-printed forms.


Why Use AMS Services?

The AMS modular system is part of the reason why we’re different from other payroll software providers. Small and large business owners can pick and choose between affordable tools. In other words, a business will not need to pay a higher cost to get a personalized accounting suite.

Additional worthwhile AMS features are the SSN Verification file, the inclusion of a certified payroll report, and that the software supports over 30 different check types. The Software Generated Forms module also supports Windows compatible printers. You can print MICR checks on blank check stock using the Software Generated Forms module.
