Online payroll service SurePayroll announced today that it is one of the top 40 finalists for the Chicago Innovation Awards, an annual recognition that celebrates the city's most innovative companies.

The Innovation Awards recognize Chicagoland companies that offer unique products or services addressing a previously unmet need, generate a competitive response in the marketplace, exceed market expectations and achieve financial success.

This year, SurePayroll has elevated its fast, simple and convenient online payroll processing to the next generation by launching its patent-pending 1-Click™ Payroll Technology. With 1-Click Payroll, SurePayroll provides customers with the option to process payroll in one step, reducing time spent on small business payroll processing from two minutes to ten seconds. 1-Click Technology powers all benefits integrated into the payroll process, including 401k, health insurance and workers' compensation plans. So with a mere mouse-click, all benefits funds are calculated and deducted, and online reports are provided.

1-Click Payroll is perfect for tech savvy on-the-go business owners, as it is available from any computer or mobile device with Internet access - such as the iPhone or BlackBerry.

Susan Dee, SurePayroll's IBM representative, nominated the company for the 2009 award based on its ability to provide fast and reliable on-the-go mobile 1-Click Payroll.

"A company that offers an innovative and useful application via a mobile device is certainly ahead of industry competitors," says Dee. "SurePayroll's 1-Click Payroll enables employers to run payroll when and where it's convenient, which is tremendously welcome in an age where we all have so many things going on at once. This simply eliminates the typical worries and hassle associated with running your employees' payroll."

As the online alternative to ADP® and Paychex®, SurePayroll is dedicated to providing an easier-to-use, more convenient payroll solution for small business owners.

This year, SurePayroll has been recognized with other prestigious awards for its 1-Click Payroll, including a CompTIA SoftwareCEO Software Innovation Award. It also received the American Business Award for 2009 Best Customer Service, an honor bestowed by The Stevie Awards to recognize innovative companies that are going above and beyond to deliver service and value to their customers. SurePayroll points to the overall customer experience provided by the staff, technology and new innovations such as 1-Click Payroll that completely eliminate payroll worries for its small business customers.

SurePayroll was named a top innovative company as part of the 2008 Chicago Innovation Awards for introducing a variety of features designed to help eliminate hassle from small business owners' lives, including same-day enrollment for payroll services, free HR and compliance tools, extended customer support hours and the ability to process payroll anywhere and anytime on mobile devices.
