Customer Testimonials


I am so glad we found Checkmate!!  We had been using a large payroll processing company and kept getting treated like a small fish in a big pond.  Our transition was seamless and they have been there to hep us every step of the way.  The web based system is super user friendly and the staff is nothing but wounderful.  We are proud to now be able to say that we have gone local.  Best decision ever.

Reliable, efficient and affordable, those are the first words that come to mind when I think of our experience using Checkmate Small Business Solutions for our payroll and HR support needs.  The customer service they have provided is amazing, their team is always responsive.  Working with Checkmate for our payroll and employee handbook has saved us countless hours of time and thousands of dollars by making managing this side of everyday operations extremely easy.  My company has been using them for almost two years now and have found them to be far superior compared to the other two payroll service providers we had used before trusting Checkmate with our payroll and other HR support needs.  We are a Portland marketing agency with a growing business and I am happy to say that over time, as we have hired more staff, my satisfaction with Checkmate services has only grown and knowing that we have the support we need when we need it is invaluable.  I highly recommend Checkmate to anyone who values affordable excellence and great customer service.

We've been using Checkmate for our payroll services and have been extremely impressed with their accuracy, customer service and overall attention to detail.  As a small business owner, I have a lot of hats to wear and the last thing I want to have to do is manage my own payroll.  Fortunately, that's one hat I don't have to worry about now.  Checkmate has been a real time saver for us and I would feel confident in referring them to any of the business owners I know.  In a world where strong customer service isn't always at the forefront, it's nice to have a company like Checkmate stand out above the crowd.
