What our clients say

See what actual users are saying about Avanti, from usability and key features to implementation, customer support, and more.

We can now use Avanti’s web timesheets to do final pay, so we don’t have to email managers to ask them where their paper time sheets are anymore. It makes everything much faster than before.
Carolyn Lesyshen
Payroll Supervisor, Servus Credit Union
Because Avanti is so efficient at processing payroll, our payroll administrators don’t have to do a whole bunch of data entry anymore. They’re actually able to run the payroll and do some analysis… instead of just running to get it out the door.
Sherri Kisser
Manager, Finance & Accounting Systems, Glacier Media Group
We've been able to automate a ton of stuff that we had to key into the systems before...When we were using the old systems on a payroll processing week, it took us four days. Now, it takes us only two.
Candace McGee
Manager, Payroll & Benefits,
Canadian Rocky Mountain Resorts
Compared to the other systems I've used, I would recommend Avanti in a heartbeat. It's so nice to be able to do everything on your own.
Melissa Baena
Senior Payroll Specialist, Acera Insurance
Switching to Avanti means more peace of mind. Avanti understands cloud-based security for payroll. And, when we did the initial proposal, we realized that the cost per employee per pay period was almost half of what it used to be.
Jonathan Lee
Corporate Controller, Westcorp
We’ve been with Avanti for a long time and greatly benefit from having an integrated payroll and human resources (HR) solution. Before Avanti, we had a separate payroll function, and many HR tasks were done manually. Avanti’s HR information system (HRIS) has enabled us to go digital and has driven significant operational efficiencies.

Assistant Manager and Systems & Applications Analyst, Children’s Aid Society of London and Middlesex (CASLM)
