The Computing Technology Industry Association (CompTIA) has named online payroll service SurePayroll a winner in the SoftwareCEO Software Innovation Awards, which annually recognize the top software products and new business models in Software as a Service (SaaS). SurePayroll received the "Most Innovative Small and Medium-Sized Infrastructure Software" award based on excellent customer service, ease of use and add-on services as outstanding features.

CompTIA judges lauded the scope, impact and novelty of SurePayroll's services, which allow small business owners to take the hassle and frustration out of processing payroll, filing taxes and other HR tasks.

"The IT industry is in the midst of one of the most innovative periods in its history," says Todd Thibodeaux, president and chief executive officer of CompTIA. "Virtualization, cloud computing, software-as-a-service, and many other solutions are delivering real business value to customers. By winning a SoftwareCEO Software Innovation award, SurePayroll has demonstrated it is at the forefront of innovation. On behalf of the worldwide membership of CompTIA and SoftwareCEO, I am pleased to recognize their achievement."

SurePayroll was the first full-service SaaS payroll provider on the market. Since 2000, the company has grown rapidly, processing payroll for tens of thousands of small businesses nationwide and handling over $5 billion in payroll payments annually.

Its innovative add-on services played a significant role in receiving the award.
