GLENVIEW, IL - SurePayroll, the online alternative to ADP® and Paychex®, today announced that it has won the CPA Technology Advisor's Innovation Award for its Mobile Payroll app, the first and only payroll app introduced in the industry. Announced at this month's 2010 California Accounting & Business conference, the Innovation Awards were created to honor new and emerging technologies that have the potential to significantly impact the tax and accounting profession. Winners are selected by CPA Technology Advisor's editorial advisory board and awards committee, which is comprised of accounting and tax professionals from all over the country.
SurePayroll's Mobile Payroll app gives small business owners the ability to enter, view and process their payroll from anywhere, at any time, using an iPhone or iPod touch. Since its launch in December 2009, thousands of small business owners have downloaded and run payroll using the app, which was designed for ease-of-use and convenience.
"SurePayroll is dedicated to giving our customers the simplest, most convenient payroll experience possible so that they can focus on running their business," said Steve Kania, SurePayroll VP of product management. "We are always exploring new ways and technologies to deliver on that commitment, and are honored to have our Mobile Payroll app recognized by the Innovation Awards."
The SurePayroll Mobile Payroll App is integrated with the user's SurePayroll account, allowing small business owners to switch seamlessly back and forth between platforms. Using their iPhone or iTouch, users can enter payroll information and preview totals to verify accuracy for hourly and salaried employees, as well as 1099 contractors, then approve and run payroll in seconds using SurePayroll's 1-Click Payroll technology(TM). As a full service online payroll firm, SurePayroll then automatically deposits and files all federal, state, and local payroll taxes with guaranteed accuracy, saving valuable hours of administrative work for busy entrepreneurs.
Terri Zeh Jacobson, President of Resources for Small Business, a management consulting firm in Minneapolis, MN, knows just how valuable extra time, greater flexibility, and the security of knowing payroll is being handled efficiently and accurately is to a small business owner. "If you run a small business you often have to wear many hats, which means time can be limited. The convenience of the SurePayroll Mobile Payroll App means I can multi-task on my own schedule, from anywhere -- a very useful asset when prioritizing. "
Named a finalist for Stevie Awards in the "Business Innovation of the Year" and "New Product or Service of the Year - Computer Software" categories, SurePayroll's Mobile Payroll app was also named one of the "10 Must-Have Small Business iPhone Apps for a Productive 2010" list by Small Biz Trends.
