Meet New Member Primepoint HRMS & Payroll:  
Primepoint's roots go back almost forty years to a company started by Bea and Alex Bothwell, Sr. called Bookkeeping Assistance.  That company grew to become Delaware Valley Payroll, from which Primepoint was created.

However, over 2,000 small businesses trust Primepoint with their payroll everyday.
Primepoint's major differentiators are the company's willingness and capability to configure the our software, which creates unique solutions to meet the needs of clients.
