Founded in 2002 and based in Canton, OH, Patriot Software (www.patriotsoftware.com) may not be the best known entry-level accounting software vendor but they have a fantastic product and are an absolutely wonderful company and should be a product that smaller businesses consider. What makes Patriot so great? Personal touch. Their average user rating is 4.9 out of 5 and they have a perfect 5 out of 5 rating on Capterra. That’s unheard of.
Patriot touts accounting software for the NON-accountant. Their product offers simple, cash-basis accounting with invoicing, accounts payable, and financial reporting. Support is included at no charge. The product is incredibly affordable at just $12.50 per month.
Patriot’s software does not offer inventory or manufacturing so it isn’t a great fit for these industries unless you have software already for that part of your business. But what it does, it does brilliantly. The software is designed for start-ups and small or home office (SOHO) businesses with one to up to about 100 employees (or so).
They also offer 1099 software for just $7.50 per month and software for payroll and human resources and time and attendance. The cool part of their payroll offering is that they have one edition where you run payroll for a lower cost (starting at $10 per month) and a full-service edition where they do all the work (starting at just $25 per month).
The software is used by thousands of businesses supported by a team of approximately 400 employees.
Patriot Software also owns Top Echelon, a recruiting software and contract staffing services business.
