A Word from Our CEO

Jan 2013
We hope that you, your family, and your company found the holiday season to be prosperous. CheckMark has spent the past two years overhauling our Payroll Software and we hope that you are now enjoying the new features to the program, along with the new interface. With the updated program, we are now capable of adding many more features, so please keep your suggestions coming.

With that, CheckMark has kept a close watch on the Fiscal Cliff decisions. You’ll be happy to know that our latest update already reflects the changes the government has made to Social Security and Federal tax rates. Be assured that we are keeping up on things so you can focus on your business.
Mohammed Ghani
President and CEO



New 2013 Updates...We want your feedback!

CheckMark Payroll 2013 is the end result of a two-year process to entirely overhaul our Payroll Software. We hope that you’ve been enjoying the additional features the program is now able to offer. The new design is better able to handle many user requests. We welcome feedback on the new program (especially the new interface!) and would love to hear your requests for additional program changes in the future.

Meet a CheckMark Employee- Whitney S

1) How long have you been working at CheckMark and what is your role?
I’ve been at CheckMark since October 2010. I’m a marketing associate and am the keystrokes behind such things as our eblasts, newsletters, social media, and online advertising. 
2) What is your favorite part of working at CheckMark? 
I really appreciate the flexibility CheckMark provides to deal with life. Life always throws you curve balls when inconvenient and CheckMark is understanding of that.

3) What random talent or skill do you have?
Outside of work, I am a professional cyclist (think Tour de France). I also enjoy making cheese from scratch.

Electrical tape. It’s not too sticky making it malleable for sculptures and a bit more forgiving than super sticky tapes.

Tips From Our Support Team

Top Questions of the Quarter

1)      Why do I have two 2012 icons?
We have created a new installer. So the 2012 icon will update and place a new icon on your desktop. You can just right click one of the icons and delete or drag one of the icons to your trash. You will not hurt anything by throwing it away. The 2012 years should be the only year you will have this problem. You should not have this problem in future years.

2)      Do you know how to Start your new year? Do you know how to start a New company if you are a new customer?
All this information can be found in one easy place. When you open the program there is a Help Menu on the toolbar. Inside you will fine a Quick Start Guide. This Guide has directions on how to start a new year and create a new company. You can also fine more instructions under the Help Menu in the Payroll Manual.
