"Merit's staff have been extremely knowledgeable and helpful throughout the scoping, install, go live and support. Merit's team have made the transition as smooth as possible, even with some of my often unexpected last minute requirements.

The Online Portal has had fantastic reviews from our clients, and staff alike. The functional system that my teams use has so much flexibility, and yet I keep full control and vision, needless to say this is better than I had dared imagine. I have now been able to double my client base, however, with the Merit system I have had no requirement to recruit further headcount or add additional resources. This means that the Merit system has paid for itself within 6 months of it ‘going live’. Furthermore I still have the capacity to grow the business by a further 75% before I need to recruit. As it stands without the Merit system we as a company would have had to turn business away as we could not have facilitated our clients demands. ".

"Having spent months comparing various payroll systems, we decided to go with Merit Software as they offered not only a very competitive price plan but also a system that could handle all our complex payroll & billing requirements. Since installation we have found the Merit payroll system to be very reliable and user friendly. The support we have received from the Merit team has been invaluable and we look forward to a long and prosperous future with Merit Software".

Carol Shrosbree, Payroll Manager Drake International

"When we started up Fusion People in January 2004, we needed to ensure that we had the best possible basis in terms of both the front office and back office software. With a multi site operation and daily payrolls to operate, we needed a pay and bill system that was both flexible and reliable. Merit Software provided us with this and worked closely with us to tailor it to our needs. With further development, it is now fully integrated into both our accounting and our bespoke front office products giving us further reporting ability and control. This has been an excellent partnership for Fusion People".
