New year, new travel and marketing budget.

Starting to look at the events that I think are interesting and would love to hear about the ones you feel are a must.

I have a list, but it feels bare (other than Collision and Disrupt). Thoughts?

Kelly BergeronI went to Fireside last year - it was very community-focused. SXSW Music I've been to but that was 7 years ago - it might be way too commercial now... the tech conference might be different though.

John Philip GreenI assume you are asking for your company, but if you need a service for your household (such as for a nanny or caregiver), check out HeartPayroll. Link: www.heartpayroll.com

Jordan SatokIt was a few years ago, but at AppHero I used Wave Payroll and really liked it. Simple setup, straight forward pricing, incredible support.

Steve LionaisBelieve it or not I just switched back to Wagepoint. They bent over backwards for me. I was on Payment Evolution and ADP. I find Wagepoint to be miles better than them both.

Aram MelkoumovJustin Hein We were on Wave. It wasn't very good for Payroll. Wave itself has a crap load of problems that they need to figure out. We switched to Quickbooks for accounting and use Wagepoint. It works fine for us! If you don't like it and you are already on Quickbooks (which I think you are due to Scalability migration), then use Quickbooks payroll. What's the issue you are having with Wagepoint?

Jason MorehouseWe use paymentevolution.com. It does the job. UI is a tad clunky, but everyone gets paid. Integrates with Xero. Based out of Toronto I think.

Adam JonesShameless promo but I'd recommend checking out a demo of Rise (www.risepeople.com) It's a payroll solution first, and support is first class. Also offer group benefits and HR fully integrated.

Caitlin Henry MacGregorI absolutely love Wagepoint! Their customer service has been first class. I hated Ceridian and was blown away by how much better my experience was with Wagepoint! I also love that they are local and believe in providing the best user experience and best customer service. Like many startup founders on here, they really go above and beyond to keep their customers happy. I'm sure they would appreciate the opportunity to make you happy.

Rob MaurinThanks to everyone who plugged Wave! The features I'll shout out, if I may (other than being proudly Canadian): • complete, including direct deposit, T4s, CRA remittances, at no extra cost • easy for people with no payroll experience • seamless integration with accounting, invoicing, etc. For people who gave us a try a while ago: We've made a ton of improvements (and will continue to), including our commitment to customer support. We now have live chat in the payroll section, and extended support hours. If you have questions, Bob H from the Wave team is awesome. You can get him at [email protected] or message me and I'll help out. The URL, of course, is waveapps.com/payroll Cheers everyone. Happy new year.

Brae-Man HebertAt Uberflip, we use Rise (www.rise.xyz) and find it fits our needs quite well. Product won't wow anyone but it does what it's supposed to do reliably and we find their service to be great. Lots of love for Wave here but it won't suit everyone, and caters to the simpler SMBs.
