Our Startup… Our Experience
We’ve never forgotten our entrepreneurial beginnings in the basement of a factory 28 years ago. Those early years were tough and exhilarating, … but they forged a set of core values, and a passion for small business that will be with us forever!

We struggled with running our own accounting and payroll for our small business in those early days. And we dreamt of someday fixing the problem for all American small business owners.

Patriot… With an Attitude
After starting five companies from scratch, we have a huge respect for small business owners. They do so much! They’re under so much pressure and stress. So, Patriot Software was born to help them, but born with an attitude…

  • Make It Work
  • Make It Simple
  • Price It Low

So in 2002 we decided to make it our mission to make your accounting and payroll as easy as we can possibly make it. That’s why we offer to set up your complete payroll for you for free. We’ll even help you set up your accounting records too, if you’d like.

Besides making it easy, we decided to make accounting and payroll affordable for the smallest of small businesses. We also decided to guarantee our work, provide free support, and not lock you into a long-term contract. Our customers like that, and so will you!

Message From Our President / Founder
I’m Mike Kappel, the guy in the videos. As was mentioned, I’m a serial entrepreneur, and I have started five companies. Each of my companies are near-and-dear to my heart, but Patriot Software is my one company that can have the greatest positive impact on the smallest of small businesses across the USA.

I’ve been in the small business owner’s shoes. It’s rough. There isn’t time to do anything extra, especially handling non-income producing tasks like payroll and accounting. I can do accounting, but it’s not a personal strength or passion of mine. And payroll? Well, let’s just say that I’d rather spend my time building my business.

But both payroll and accounting must be done correctly, and most business owners don’t have anyone they can pass these tasks off to. This is why I assembled a team of experts and software developers to build the best accounting software and best payroll software in the USA. My team knows that they need to make our software so easy that even I can use it. They know that I’m not an accounting or payroll geek. They know I’m a small business owner who wants to spend as little time as possible on anything accounting or payroll related.

So that’s the short story. I hope you like our software and our team. I think you will, and I think you’ll get a lot of value for your buck. And, isn’t that how it should be?
