SurePayroll Named as Finalist in 2008 American Business Awards℠
Online Payroll Provider Recognized for Two Stevie Categories: Customer Care and Best New Product/Service, Financial Services
Glenview, IL (PRWEB) May 16, 2008
SurePayroll (http://www. surepayroll. com/default. asp) was named a finalist in two categories of the 2008 American Business Awards, receiving recognition as one of the strongest entrants in both Best Customer Service Organization/Department and Best New Product or Service - Financial Services.
Hailed as "the business world's own Oscars" (New York Post, April 27, 2005), The American Business Awards (or Stevie® Awards) are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business.
More than 2,600 entries from companies of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories. SurePayroll will be competing in the Best Customer Service Organization/Department category and its new SureAdvisor HR and compliance resources service will compete in the Best New Product or Service - Financial Services category.
"ABA entries grew more than 30% this year, so being named a finalist is more of an accomplishment than ever before," said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of The Stevie Awards.
SurePayroll's full-service online solution is unique in the industry. While small businesses find online payroll services appealing for their affordability and 24-hour convenience, online services are often "at your own risk," leaving customers to handle their own tax deposits and filings, and providing limited customer support. SurePayroll has taken the online experience to the next level, providing affordability, convenience and a robust service offering delivered by passionate payroll experts who own the worries of customers. When a business owner becomes a customer, they can count on unlimited, toll-free, 6-days-a-week support from U. S.-based representatives, fully-searchable online support and a dedicated tax department that guarantees the resolution of IRS payroll tax issues.
In the last year, SurePayroll expanded its service to include HR and compliance resource tools designed to protect small businesses from fines and give them access to tools that help them run their offices more efficiently. SureAdvisor serves as a one-stop shop for compliance posters, business forms, HR how-to guides and more. It is the online payroll industry's first program to help small business owners manage their compliance and human resource issues, offering a $25,000 guarantee that users will remain in compliance as it relates to labor law postings. SureAdvisor is also the only compliance and HR Software as a Service (SaaS) program that is integrated with a proven payroll service at no additional cost.
"We are honored to be recognized by the American Business Awards for our customer care and SureAdvisor service," said SurePayroll President Michael Alter. "These awards acknowledge the high caliber of our employees and their unwavering commitment to providing our customers with the tools they need to effectively manage their growing businesses."
Stevie Award winners will be announced during the annual gala on Thursday, June 12 at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City. More than 600 executives from across the U. S.A. are expected to attend. The ceremonies will be broadcast on radio nationwide by the Business TalkRadio Network and hosted by Liz Claman of FOX Business Network.
