Payroll Processing Services

We have developed seamless corporate payroll processing integrations for our clients and their management systems with paperless flow of data to-and-from our Alliance solution. You can easily integrate hours, new hires, demographic changes – anything you want! You maintain total control by approving any changes before integration. Multiple EIN companies will appreciate how Alliance streamlines payroll processing across brands, locations, and EIN’s. You can import payroll data from virtually any Point of Sales (POS) or third party application. When you need a “tight” data feed across business systems, we offer a web API to allow for automatic data integration.

Alliance Human Capital Management Payroll and Tax solutions

Payroll Tax Management

Payroll responsibility for businesses continues even after paychecks have been issued to their employees. It’s not as simple as handing your employees paychecks, a lot more goes into every payroll run. Some of these responsibilities include:
Never worry about a payroll tax penalty again! Stop suffering from the ongoing stress of making your tax deposits on time. We will handle all tax deposits automatically and guarantee they are correct or we will pay the penalties and interest. All quarterly and year-end tax forms are completed, reconciled, and filed by Alliance. We can provide full payroll tax management and can even answer all payroll tax-related correspondence for you, so you don’t have to call the IRS for answers.

Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC)

The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC) is a Federal Tax Credit Program available to employers who hire individuals from eligible target groups. Each year, employers claim over $1 billion in tax credits under the WOTC program. Employers can earn a tax credit of between $1,200 and $9,600 per eligible employee.

What Is the Work Opportunity Tax Credit

Employee Retention Credit (ERC)

The Employee Retention Credit (ERC) is part of the CARES Act. It is a fully refundable tax credit that incentivizes employers for retaining staff throughout the COVID-19 pandemic by providing specific tax relief. Businesses can claim up to $5,000 in refundable tax credits for each employee on their payroll in 2020 and up to a $7,000 credit per quarter (excluding Q4) for each employee in 2021.

Payment Services

Our payroll processing services meet the difficult and time-consuming demands of your expanding workforce with flexible and convenient pay options, so you can easily keep up with the many ways your employees want to receive and manage their pay without the hassle of handling it all yourself.

AllianceHCM provides a resource that can centrally manage all your payment options, including:

With any payment option you choose, your employees will have anytime access to pay, tax, and account information through the Alliance Employee Self-Service mobile app.

On-Demand Payments

Improve recruitment, retention, and productivity with Alliance’s on-demand payroll services. Give your employees more say in when they are paid rather than waiting for the standard payday. Not having to wait for payday helps employees better manage their finances and provides for less stress over the timing of bills and payments.

Our on-demand payroll solution can also be used as a recruiting and differentiation tool, since instant pay access is not a benefit all companies extend. Offering on-demand payments to employees also helps with retention because of the convenience of quick access payments.

On-demand payments are not loans, but a self-serve way for your employees to get early access to their earned wages. Here are a few of the benefits:

Connect funds to a bank account in less than 30 seconds.

Only pay $5 transaction fee for each $200 on-demand wage dispersal.

Gain instant access to funds 24/7/365.

Receive financial education and personalized financial tools.

Garnishment Services

Wage garnishments are common, complicated, and can result in severe consequences if mishandled. Alliance’s payroll processing service can provide relief though our expert guidance, taking the stress out of compliance with complex legal requirements and allowing you to more easily focus on your business.

Here’s what we do for our clients:

Expense Management

AllianceHCM’s expense management puts simplicity and automation at the center of its usability by allowing your employees to submit from multiple devices, your managers to approve expense reports, and payroll administrators to deploy reimbursements with ease through the AllianceHCM Payroll platform.

My practice revolves around providing sound financial decisions that come from sound financial data. In any business, your human capital is the most expensive factor in that data. And AllianceHCM does a good job of helping me manage that function no matter how large or small of an operation I am advising. Having their partnership gives me another way to provide great service.
Dwayne Anderson, President, Carefree Financial Management
Alliance talks about being without limits, and that is definitely the case here. Keystone is no longer limited by having no payroll expertise in house. The guidance and service we get from Alliance gives us more confidence, more abilities and more time to focus on selling and taking care of our clients.
Christian Kopp, Outsourced Risk Manager, Keystone Insurance & Bonds
AllianceHCM is the perfect fit for us. They know our industry and they’re price competitive. But even more important is their service. They are always ready to help me with anything. They bring expertise that I need without me giving up control, which really helps me do my job. It’s a great partnership.
Tammy Garza, Controller, Avalanche Food Group
AllianceHCM provides the means in a couple of minutes what used to take 20-30 minutes.
Justin Smith, Chief Operating Officer, Aspire2B Hospitality Group​
Service, service, service. Our former payroll company didn’t put the effort into training us. AllianceHCM took the time to show us how to use the system, and is here for us if we have a question.
You guys certainly run the best dang payroll company we’ve ever encountered!
Darren Malhame, Northstar Restaurants
You guys are the best payroll company I have worked with (I work at a CPA firm). Always helpful and always quick to respond.
Colonial Oaks Senior Living Employer LLC
I’ve referred every franchisee I know. All have switched to AllianceHCM.
Lynn Keller, HPV Staff LLC
Switched from ADP and couldn’t be happier!
Brandon Bean, WT Friendly RV LP
We are very pleased with our decision to switch to AllianceHCM. I would recommend AllianceHCM to anyone who required payroll related services. My job is so much easier knowing AllianceHCM is on the job.
Doug Whiddon, Mod Mafia LLC
I’ve always gotten excellent service and expertise from you guys.
Janet Sopronyi, Covert Management
I chose to partner with AllianceHCM over 30 years ago, and it has been one of the most vital partnerships that I have made. They have decades of experience and industry knowledge when working with McDonald’s, serving thousands of them nationwide. As I’ve grown and added locations and employees, the Alliance platform has grown with me to meet my business needs. They’ve even created interfaces with QSRsoft and ISP, which means I don’t have to manually key information. I can manage everything from payroll, tax credits, automated ACA tracking, and onboarding all in one platform.
Gary Bolen, McDonalds
We partnered with AllianceHCM in 2016, and we continue to partner with them because of their prompt and knowledgeable customer service. Alliance helps us manage our employees with an easy-to-use digital onboarding tool, ACA reporting, tax credit management, and payroll, all on a single platform. If I ever have a question, I can always speak to my dedicated customer service representative; whether it’s a question on custom reporting or if I need help with digital onboarding, I can always get the questions answered promptly and confidently.
Shandala T., PapaJohns
As a leader in the organization, AllianceHCM is a great product for managers. It allows them to quickly onboard people – and in a restaurant, it’s one of the toughest things we do. AllianceHCM is a vendor that allows you to take 3 or 4 different vendors or pieces’ you would normally go to as a manager in a restaurant, and it puts it all together for you.
Justin Smith, Aspire2B Hospitality
Without AllianceHCM, we definitely wouldn’t have been able to open on time‚ maybe not at all. Their onboarding solution and its customizable features helped us implement the training programs necessary to get everyone trained on COVID regulations quickly, and because we could automate certain tasks, we had a lot more time to focus on the most important lessons.
Camp Ozark
We have been using AllianceHCM for more than 13 years, and as we have grown, they have always been there to provide the technology and service to support our needs. That have our recommendation and we look forward to working with them in the many years ahead.
Eddie Deen & Co., Inc
I’ve found other HCM systems hard to navigate, not intuitive, and the cookie-cutter reporting styles lacking. When I reached out to customer support for help, I found it to be slow and unresponsive. AllianceHCM stands out in comparison. Their customer service and software functionality have helped me address HR and business needs quickly and accurately.
Ryan Garner, SitePro Inc
We needed an HCM partner to provide a payroll and HR platform explicitly customized for our unique business needs supported by a service team that knew our business. Since being with AllianceHCM, we have set up a system that works with our daily HR and payroll operations. The platform is very user-friendly, and making custom reports for the specific data I need is straightforward and accessible. If we ever need help and assistance, we can always get our dedicated representative on the line, and they have always been able to walk us through the process.
Michael De La Rosa, Texas Land Title Association
We task our managers all the time to‚ go get talent, and they would have to log in to Indeed, they had to log in to Glassdoor, they had to log in to a payroll system and then execute payroll on Monday – and one of the reasons we switched/went to Alliance is we could do all of that in one. Managers can log into one place, they can review their applicants, they can see where applications are coming from within the very popular applicant portals, they can onboard them, and then they can get them paid. And that’s something that’s very attractive to a restaurant manager who has a lot to do in their day. So, Alliance provided a means in a couple of minutes to do what used to take 20 or 30 minutes per team member to get them on our team.
Justin Smith, Aspire2B Hospitality
Alliance HCM’s white glove service combined with an all-in-one payroll, HRIS, timekeeping system has made our day to day operations seamless and more efficient. The system is intuitive and user-friendly. With their digital onboarding solution, we are able to give our new hires one of the smoothest onboarding experiences I’ve seen. Also, the convenient timekeeping tool has changed my life by saving me time and effort. The best part is when I do need help, I can simply call into the helpdesk and I always get a live representative who quickly answers all my questions.
Eddie Deen & Co Inc.
In the past, I worked with a payroll and HR provider that did not customize their product offering, which led to high admin costs for products we weren’t even using. Their standardized bundles did not cater to our unique day-to-day operations, and I found myself spending a lot of time making the platform work for our business. When I did reach out to the call center for help, I always had a hard time getting a hold of them, and I ended up waiting for my service ticket resolution. In the end, we could never align with the customer call center on getting the data we needed to manage our daily needs.
Michael D., Texas Land Title Association
We transitioned to AllianceHCM in 2021, and I’ve found the result of switching to be a breath of fresh air. The transition was smooth, and their team helped every step of the way. Anytime my team had a question or concern about any of the processes or software, AllianceHCM’s team is accessible and able to provide the answers we need.
Heather B., Urgent Health Solutions PA
Their team is highly communicative, and they back their communication with a wealth of knowledge, making my job easier. Every time I speak with someone, they have the answer, and if they don’t know off the top of their head, they find out and give the solution within the hour.
Heather B., Urgent Health Solutions PA
If I had to choose the best thing about working with Alliance, I would say it is communication. The software is terrific, but the biggest thing that sets Alliance apart from others is that they have someone who knows their stuff.
Heather B., Urgent Health Solutions PA
A great example of the level of service is while processing a recent payroll; we had an employee whose manager forgot to add retro pay hours. My support contact recalled the payroll and imputed the corrections, and resubmit it without skipping a beat.
Heather Botto, Urgent Health Solutions PA
Since switching, I’ve found our operations, HR, and payroll to be more streamlined. Processing payroll is way more straightforward. With our past provider, the process required a lot more manual touch. With the AllianceHCM system everything is on the same platform, there is almost no manual impute needed.
Heather B., Urgent Health Solutions PA
AllianceHCM’s customer service is 10-times better than what I have experienced in the past. I can always reach my account manager and get critical questions answered. It is great knowing that if I need help making a custom report, I can call in and promptly have a report built. With the single database, I can quickly move between recruiting, digital onboarding, HRIS, ACA, and payroll, all in one place.
Ryan G., SitePro Inc
Having all of the functionality in one place gives me on-the-spot insights into our workforce and minimizes compliance risk by providing real-time and accurate data. I’m also saving valuable time because of the platform’s ease of use and functionality.
Ryan G., SitePro Inc
So glad we made the switch to AllianceHCM a few years back. You all are fantastic. Hands down the best HR/Payroll provider we’ve ever used…..and we’ve used quite a few! We see it far too often these days – size and sophistication are oftentimes provided/achieved to the detriment of customer care and support. AllianceHCM is one of the rare few that have mastered an uncompromising business strategy. It’s refreshing to work with a company that not only meets our expectations, but exceeds them on a regular basis!
Greg H., restaurant industry
I have great communication with everyone I’ve worked with at AllianceHCM. Very Satisfied!
Debra G, Trinity Bay Conservation District
AllianceHCM has been a great partner to my business with services that go beyond basic payroll processing. As a technology-forward company, they have been instrumental in my business’s response not only to COVID-19 but also to ACA and other HR processes. Their fast-reacting customer help desk has continually provided accurate assistance and answers. AllianceHCM is a truly valuable resource to my organization.
Dominic Flis, Burger King
We partnered with AllianceHCM in 2016, and we continue to partner with them because of their prompt and knowledgeable customer service. AllianceHCM helps us manage our employees with an easy-to-use digital onboarding tool, ACA reporting, tax credit management, and payroll, all on a single platform.
Shandala T., Payroll Director, Ozark Pizza Company LLC
Scheduling, shift changes, and time off requests are so much easier to manage now. Having a live schedule at their fingertips is an invaluable tool for our managers. The painful days of Excel spreadsheets are in the past now that we are using MakeShift.
Vince S., GM and Retail Director, Fuel City
In more than 25 years of payroll, I have never experienced the level of service that AllianceHCM has provided.
David J., COO, Apara AutismCenters
I am a huge fan of AllianceHCM Payroll. I only use AllPay as a platform, but hands down, it is the best. I pretty much use every aspect of the AllPay platform. It’s easy to navigate. Customer service is second to none. From the minute somebody answers the phone, which from what I’ve been told from other people using different platforms, that’s not always the case. You know, even the friendly voice on the other end that answers, right down to whatever department you need, getting somebody to help you in that department, it’s always a success story. I have never had anybody at AllianceHCM that has not been able to help me.
Trish Y., Payroll Manager, Higginbotham
As a payroll manager at Higginbotham, I’m able to do what I need to do, get into AllPay, get it done and make my clients happy. I really am probably the biggest fan of AllianceHCM Payroll. I just really enjoy working on the platform. I’ve developed relationships with the AllianceHCM team and they honestly make me feel like when I call, they’re here to help me and they’ll stay on the phone with me until what I need is completed. That’s huge! AllianceHCM makes me look good. Because I’m able to do my job efficiently.
Trish Y., Payroll Manager, Higginbotham
Listening to my teammates that are dealing with the ADP, Paylocity, Paycor etc. hands down, they do not offer the same level of customer service. It doesn’t even compare. They call needing help, hoping someone will pick up the phone and be able to help them. And from what I hear, they tell me they sit there on hold for a long time, over an hour! and when it looks like someone finally is answering the phone, the line gets disconnected! We’ve never had that happen at AllianceHCM.
Trish Y., Payroll Manager, Higginbotham
Onboarding has been wonderful right out of the gate. I was told from the get go “AllPay will be your best friend” and they were right! I love the AllPay platform and the AllianceHCM service team has never let me down. They really do go above and beyond for us.
Trish Y., Payroll Manager, Higginbotham
After several calls and a lot of research, we decided to move forward with AllianceHCM for our workforce software and services. AllianceHCM offered a well-rounded product that works for us. The level of expertise, honesty and background of our sales rep, Nicole, was also a determining factor. Both sales and implementation have been excellent to work with; they make themselves available, answer all our questions, always follow through, and provide excellent customer service. We highly recommend AllianceHCM and their services.
Jeff Siupik, JSBA Development, LLC
I recommend AllianceHCM all of the time. Great service and great team. Don’t change anything!
Jean Lanfear, VP Human Resources, Patton Wings
During the PPP program, when clients were coming into Amegy Bank asking for loans, some of them brought me their documentation that AllianceHCM had done, and I was just amazed how detailed and customized all the paperwork was. So AllianceHCM was already on my radar when I saw all the good work that they were doing for their clients. The referral process was so easy! I was able to make $3,000 for just sending over a name, which was pretty exciting for me. I don’t think I’ve ever received money that was so easy to do for just such a simple process. I’m looking forward to making more money by referring to AllianceHCM.

The transition to Alliance was (fairly) pain-free thanks to the help of the transition team. When you use Alliance, you are given your personal account representative to help with any and all issues. Our rep, Cary Bruce, is knowledgeable, friendly and fun to work with. This company makes payroll processing the simplest part of my day.

I first gave a 1 star rating for everything that happened during and after our initial rollout. Many months later I have reached Serene Fryar and she has completely turned it around for us. She is knowledgeable (and honest when she doesn't know the answer which I find refreshing), stellar with follow-up, helpful and incredibly friendly. Very pleased with what she has been able to do for our company when others couldn't!
