"We're really happy with Pento, because it's so easy to use and constantly improving. I used to spend 5-10% of my time running payroll. Now I can get it all done in minutes, and it's a much better experience for everyone in the company. The quick chat support is a huge time-saver as well."

I’m not a payroll expert. Can I use Pento?
