I had the pleasure of meeting with Jake, his kindness and knowledge was outstanding. Not only did he take time to explain his business but also gave me guidance on how I can improve my own business. Jake is a genuine person who is willing to go the extra mile to help you. Thank you Jake!

Our company was very apprehensive with moving over to a new Payroll provider, however Ahola's Implementation Team was great through the whole process and made sure that even our specific situational needs were addressed and resolved to our satisfaction.

I could not be more pleased with the service we have received from Ahola. Everyone I have had the pleasure to deal with has been extremely friendly and more importantly helpful and quick to get the job complete. I have been extremely impressed from the very beginning with Paula and then Stephanie, Russell, and Corinne. I'm not sure why other payroll companies can't give this kind of service, but I am glad I found Ahola. Customer for life.

I am new to Ahola - just implemented in January 2021 - and I am so pleased with this company. Running payroll is a breeze with Ahola! Must more efficient and user friendly than other software than I have used in the past. Sheila Hardy has been truly amazing to work with! I greatly appreciate her positivity and willingness to help in every situation. Couldn't ask for better service! When I have questions, she is always happy to answer them and gets back to me very quickly. I will certainly recommend Ahola to others in the business community! Fantastic job and fantastic people!

I love working with Ahola! The team makes our payroll processing experience easy and uncomplicated. Our CSR, Tricia, the whole service team for that matter, is always just a phone call away. She/They truly care about our payroll needs and always go above and beyond every time.

We recently switched to Ahola for our payroll processing services. It's so helpful having my own personal payroll specialist who can answer all of my many questions! We've been super happy with everything. And I love working with a local, family owned business - just like mine! The switch over was so easy with my specialist walking me through it. It was a very good decision. Thank you Jake and the Ahola team!

I have been working with Ahola for over three years now, and just want to say that they do a great job! The contact I have through Ahola is Kathleen and she is amazing! The processes that they have in place to help the businesses navigate through the payroll system makes it easy and simple.This is not a typical payroll company, they actually work with you from setting up vacation time, PTO time and of course anything else you might need help with. They offer weekly and monthly training for all their clients so you have the ability to join the training classes when it is convenient for you.Highly recommend Ahola, you will not be disappointed!

We have been a customer of Ahola for many years. Their software is very easy to use, with easy access to a wide variety of payroll and human resource reports. Processing and delivery has always been on time. There have never been any problems with tax returns they've filed on our behalf. Any questions I've ever had are always answered promptly. I'm very, very happy with them as our payroll processor.
