First Up: AmCheck Payroll Services
Located at 3401 Quebec Street #8000, Denver, CO 80207, AmCheck provides employers with a comprehensive single source for Payroll Services, Human Resources Management, Benefit Procurement and Administration Services along with Worker's Comp Insurance.
We thank Jim Gosselin, Managing Partner of Amcheck Payroll Services for his responses to the following questions:
Q. What brought you to your current role with AmCheck Payroll Services?
JG: It was blind luck. I met Dean and Brad, our founding partners through a friend. I had some money that I was either going to cash out and travel, or I was going to invest it in doing something for myself after a career in corporate America. The investment paid off…
Q. What are some of the daily business challenges you face?
JG: Well, thanks to Anchor, IT is NOT one of them! We don’t have many daily challenges after 12 years in business. We try to create an exceptional client interaction in everything we do. This is something we have worked very hard on over the past few years, and is something we continue to work on daily. We try to keep things fun and interesting for our staff. Great communication is something that can be a daily challenge but is mandatory.
Q. As a leading provider of payroll services, what makes AmCheck stand out from the rest of the competition?
JG: Straight from our marketing material…Customization – Convenience – Customer Service. We customize our service offering with the specific needs of each of our clients. We have a menu of services that clients can pick and choose from for where they need help. We try to re-create as little as possible and will work with clients in their format vs. trying to mold them to ours. It has to be convenient for clients. I touched on it in the previous question but customer service is everything! Especially, when we are dealing with people’s money handling payroll and taxes. With something as important as this, client’s need to know they can count on someone. We have dedicated customer service people and clients are not just another number in our company. We get to know our clients and anticipate their needs. We try to be a partner for them and not just a vendor.
Q. What’s an ideal client for AmCheck?
JG: An ideal client is someone that packages multiple services with us. We focus on businesses with 25-500 employees but, we will also handle smaller business as well and payroll only if that’s what makes sense for the client. We want to show clients other alternatives to outsourcing, and how we can streamline their Human Resources and the administrative burden of having employees.
Q. What do you do when you aren't working?
JG: My wife and 2 kids keep me pretty busy. Just like most Coloradans I chose to live in Denver because there is so much to do. I love to catch just about any sporting event with friends. I Golf, Snowboard, Wakeboard and enjoy lots of other activities with my family.
Q. AmCheck has been using Anchor’s services for more than 8 years now, why is the relationship crucial in the running of your day-to-day business?
JG: Because IT services are probably one of the most important aspects of our business. It is also important to us, to do business with people who share the same business philosophies as we do. Anchor gets it. We expect a very high level of service and demand that our vendors think about the things that we do not. We have done a couple of office moves, server upgrades and constant improvement to our software, backups, and a whole bunch of other stuff I won’t pretend to understand. Any time we have ever done anything IT related it goes off without issues. Anchor is very methodical about pre-planning and ensuring potential issues are considered. They are very good about keeping us up to date with latest trends and things we should be doing to stay current. IT is one of the things I worry least about in our business. This is due to our confidence in Anchor and the ongoing service they provide.
Q. Now it’s your turn to ask Anchor a question:
JG: Seriously, how many ski days does Vince have this season?
