We have always enhanced our services by focusing on our No. 1 priority, our customers
Glenview, IL (PRWEB) May 29, 2009
Online payroll service SurePayroll announced today that it has been named a finalist in five separate categories of the American Business Awards.
The American Business Awards, commonly known as "The Stevies," demonstrate a company's commitment to excellence in various fundamental business disciplines. Of the thousands of submitted entries for the 2009 American Business Awards, SurePayroll has been selected as a finalist in the following categories:
Best Overall Company: SurePayroll takes pride in its innovative service offerings, unique technology, dedication to passionate service and commitment to making the lives of small business owners easier -- both through online payroll and other offerings such as integrated 401(k) plans, health insurance options and pre-employment screening tools.
New Product or Service of the Year: SurePayroll's proprietary 1-Click™ Payroll Technology reduces time spent on small business payroll processing from minutes to seconds. By using the Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, small business owners and accountants can process payroll instantly whenever and wherever they have Internet access, even on Web-connected mobile devices such as the Apple iPhone and iPod touch.
Business Innovation of the Year: This category also recognizes SurePayroll for its 1-Click Payroll Technology.
Most Innovative Company: As a full-service online payroll provider, SurePayroll's innovations span from developing "application skins" that allow rebranding of its core payroll as a private-label service -- which has played a key role in driving partnerships with large companies -- to its 1-Click Payroll Technology that makes payroll easier and faster than ever before.
Customer Service Department of the Year: SurePayroll runs on the idea that payroll is not merely a Software as a Service product for running calculations, but an aspect of life that can cause worry for small business employers. As such, the company puts a strong emphasis on offering outstanding customer support. In February, a separate division of the Stevies, The Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service, named SurePayroll the Best eCommerce Customer Service Team of the Year.
"We are extremely honored to be named a finalist in five prestigious Stevie Award categories," says SurePayroll President Michael Alter. "Being recognized for our innovations and overall business performance is a testament to the high-quality service our small business customers have come to expect from SurePayroll."
In addition to the typical Stevie Award categories, SurePayroll's 1-Click Payroll Technology was also nominated as a Favorite Software as a Service product in the 2009 People's Choice Stevie Awards. Introduced this year, the People's Choice Stevie Awards encourage the public to vote for their favorite new products from companies that excel in innovation.
A Brief History of SurePayroll's Strength in Business Innovation
While SurePayroll introduced the 1-Click Payroll Technology in December 2008, the company has emphasized innovation and customer satisfaction for nearly a decade. In 2000, SurePayroll became the first to introduce a SaaS payroll offering and has rapidly expanded to become the largest full-service online payroll provider. Today, tens of thousands of businesses nationwide look to SurePayroll as a comprehensive solution to their payroll worries. The company bears all the responsibilities of a small business owner's payroll -- including tax filing, compliance issues and reporting -- and has consistently added new, customer-requested features such as the 1-Click Payroll Technology.
"We have always enhanced our services by focusing on our No. 1 priority, our customers," says Alter. "1-Click Payroll Technology is only one of the customer-centric innovations that we offer to help make employers' lives just a little bit easier."
Business professionals nationwide selected SurePayroll as a multi-award finalist for this year's Stevie Awards after more than five weeks of preliminary judging. Members of the American Business Awards' Board of Distinguished Judges & Advisors, plus business leaders on nine specialized judging committees, will make the final decision that determines this year's winners.
Award recipients are presented during a gala banquet at New York's Marriott Marquis Hotel on June 22. The People's Choice Stevie Award recipients will likewise be announced at this time, as the voting deadline for the general public is June 1.
