Why RISE Clients Choose Our Full-Service Payroll & Human Capital Management Partner
Over 35 years ago, a group of New York accountants were sharing the difficulties their clients were experiencing with the giant, one-size-fits-all payroll systems. These sales-oriented, volume focused companies not only often overcharged, but their systems lacked the accounting perspective that their clients—and their CPAs—truly needed. Many businesses were dissatisfied, yet lacked an affordable alternative.
This conversation led to the launch of PBI Payroll, a firm that holds itself to a higher standard of personalized service and professional accounting standards. PBI has been recognized for its exceptional quality and service by the American Payroll Association, is increasingly referred by CPAs and financial professionals, and has become one of the fastest growing payroll firms in the United States.
Over the years, PBI has expanded its services to apply the same level of affordable, white-glove service to Human Capital Management (HCM), Time & Attendance Systems, ACA Compliance, and Benefits Adminstration.
