Price Lock Guarantee

We bring you more with a guaranteed price lock.  Lock in our competitive, easy-to-understand fee structure for the services you need and we will lock that price in forever.  That’s right, for as long as you are a client the price will stay the same.  If you add services down the line, that price also gets locked in.  We stop the payroll processing “Cost Creep”.   Many of our competitors “lock” you in at a starter or discounted rate and then quarter by quarter or year by year, they raise the prices.  This adds up to significant costs to you for doing the same service and as your experience increases this often reduces the service time which is a cost savings to the payroll company.   If you have experienced this, contact us now to put an end to cost creep.



Simply navigate through our easy web based setup process and you are on your way. You will find that The Payroll Specialists allows your business to better utilize company resources that would otherwise be spent managing payroll in-house, while continuing to have complete access and control over your payroll services. Sound like a good idea?
