Advantage Payroll Services Long Island (, the New York region’s largest independently owned and operated payroll and tax processing provider and Alcott HR (, one of the nation’s leading Professional Employer Organizations (PEOs) providing a total Human Resources (HR) solution, announced today that the two companies have formed a strategic alliance.

Due to challenging economic conditions, businesses across the New York Metro area and beyond find themselves underserved in terms of human resources expertise and services and they are looking for effective, affordable and scalable solutions. Alcott HR and Advantage Payroll have come together to provide a greater array of options for businesses. The two firms will share leads, co-market and work to continue to educate businesses about the cost savings and risk management aspects associated with outsourcing payroll, HR, workers’ compensation, benefits, time and attendance and other related functions.

“Some industry watchers and competitors may think that our companies are rivals. In reality, we recognize that by having an alliance, our current and prospective clients, as well as both of our organizations, will benefit. We will be able to share leads and direct business to each other. Our goal is to keep outsourced HR and payroll business here on Long Island. When our firms serve businesses from the region, clients receive better service and jobs are created or maintained,” said Rob Basso President and Founder of Advantage Payroll Services.

According to Alcott HR President and Co-founder Lou Basso, “We’ve had an informal relationship with Advantage Payroll for the past five years. Our strategic alliance gives both Advantage Payroll and Alcott HR a formal way of offering clients more options so that they can select what best accommodates their needs at any given stage in their organizations’ growth.

He continued, “It is getting more and more complicated for organizations to manage various employee-related and HR functions on their own. Health care reform and its many regulations have further intensified the situation. Our services and approaches will alleviate some of their burden by giving companies easy access to the best solutions.”

“Advantage Payroll Services and Alcott HR share a common business philosophy which places clients first. We recognize the strengths each company brings to the table and this new formal arrangement will allow clients to have access to cost-effective and scalable solutions.
