The payroll functionality within Agvance will no longer be supported or updated after December 31, 2024. Although this change is not immediate, we want you to have the information necessary to make important business decisions and the time to make a smooth transition.
This decision makes sense for SSI and our customers. With the many payroll providers available, we acknowledge that Agvance Payroll has limited capabilities and is unable to provide the functionality and depth of services required by most businesses today. The two key components missing would be the capabilities to be a complete reporting processer and an HR component. The reporting processor component removes the burden of reporting from your staff so they can do more important duties for the business. The HR component offers more robust hiring and human resource administrative solutions.
For those of you still using the payroll functions in Agvance, it is important to understand what this decision means to your company. A more detailed explanation regarding the payroll functions that will still be available after the sunset date along with considerations for choosing a third-party provider is available below.

Working with a payroll provider that specializes in payroll provides many benefits, the greatest of which is confidence in compliance with the ever-changing rules and regulations. There are many payroll options available, depending on your company’s needs. Some offer basic functionality where others offer many robust features.
