Many reviewers have been long-term PayWindow users who rely on the software's annual updates to adjust to the constantly changing financial landscape. Most of these are small business owners who need a simple solution that can run on standard consumer-grade desktop computers.
That being said, there were also reviews from those who found that PayWindow could grow as their businesses grew. Adding new employees to a payroll roster is as easy as typing in a few details. Judging by the feedback from these users, there's no reason to believe there's any reasonable limitation on the number of employees the software can track.
Users could modify tax tables on the fly which was useful for those who planned on relocating their businesses. This feature was also praised by those who lived in states that often changed their tax brackets.
An integrated check register and quarterly wage reports helped users to stay on top of every aspect of the payrolling process. Since the system was extremely user-friendly, nobody reported any difficulties with drawing up these reports.
Companies that hired different types of employees in the same department were able to pay some people hourly and offer salaries to others. The app even included a feature that made it easy to add seasonal employees, which was especially attractive to those who managed businesses that only operated during part of the year.
Larger firms were able to export data for use with outside accounting programs. The app can automatically generate a general ledger from information collected from all other modules, which makes this process a breeze.
