Canton, OH

Patriot Software, an accounting software and payroll company, has defied all odds and grown during the Covid-19 pandemic. Despite an economic downturn, Patriot reports a 51% increase in hiring, going from 98 employees in March 2020 to 148 employees as of October 2020 in nine states across the country.

Patriot hired 50 new employees to keep up with a growing retail customer base and an influx of accountants using the software for their clients, accelerate product development, and break into new fields. The growth allows Patriot to enhance its accounting and payroll products and add additional innovative features, making the software faster and saving customers’ time.

The company has several development teams working on all aspects of the accounting and payroll software, as well as the human resources and time and attendance software add-ons. Recently, the company also developed innovative machine learning to further automate tedious accounting tasks, such as bank reconciliation, for small business owners and their accountants.

Patriot Software has grown its customer base consecutively for 118 months and is prepared for continued growth ahead. The company has developed its own proprietary direct deposit subsystem, which is presently calculating ~$3 billion in payroll and processing over $1 billion in ACH transactions annually in all 50 states. Patriot’s payroll tax subsystem is presently collecting and processing ~$600 million in payroll tax dollars per year.

Patriot plans to continue growing through Covid-19 and in the post-pandemic era. According to Patriot’s President, Mike Wheeler, “Our customers should have peace of mind knowing that the company is positioned extremely well. We are continuing to expand during an economically trying time and we are working hard to help American businesses and their accountants be more successful than ever.”
