AmCheck is now iSolved, read the Press Release here

In Oct. of 2007, I became disillusioned with the large corporate payroll companies and the constant need for profits to appease stockholders. I felt that if I could deliver a more client-centric and personal approach to providing payroll services, we could carve out a niche in the market. That is how I got in touch with Dean Lucente. In January 2008, Kris Johnson and I opened the AmCheck Portland office.

Amcheck Portland is located at 10220 SW Greenburg Rd. Suite 135, Portland, OR 97223. Our office is near the Washington Square Mall at SR 217 and Greenburg Rd in the Lincoln Center office complex in building 3.

AmCheck Portland serves all private sector businesses in the 5 to 500 employee space.

We strive to continue providing Human Capital Management that is backed by state of the art technology which is delivered and serviced by a locally owned and operated service center.

Education is important and as such, all staff are Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) certified and provided ongoing training to keep them apprised of the ever-changing legislation relative to payroll and human resources. Our compensation is above standard competitive wages and includes a generous 401(k) match and benefits package.

Kris Johnson is the Director of Operations for AmCheck Portland. While working at a competing company in Phoenix Arizona Kris knew he could offer a better solution and a higher level of customer service. Kris decided to join the AmCheck team and partnered with Tom Reap to open the Portland office.

Kris was born in Portland and attended Oregon State University from 1998-2002. He loves spending time with his wife and two children. Kris and his family like to attend country music concerts and going camping.

In 2008, Tom, along with his business partner, Kris Johnson, opened the AmCheck Portland office and created the first AmCheck office located in the Pacific Northwest.

I have nothing but good to say about AmCheck, they have treated us wonderful with any problem we have had and been more than helpful with Workers Comp, and my Account Director is so helpful with anything I ask him to help with. We have been with AmCheck since 2002, and would not use any other company.

I have been using AmCheck for about 4-5 years now. Our Insurance Rep who handles the benefits is amazing! Our Payroll Representative who handles the payroll end of our account is also top notch. The General Manager is in touch with his clients. I would imagine Ingather is a small fish in a big pond for AmCheck but you would never know this based on their responsiveness and excellent customer service. I would recommend AmCheck to anyone looking for a great company that cares about their clients. Thanks AmCheck! You guys Rock!!!

Amcheck has been a great company to work with. We switched payroll companies in 2008 after experiencing numerous errors and a huge lack of customer service. We expected a few bumps, but he made the process almost seamless. Our account representative has always been there to help and is quick to respond to us as well as our employees. You can hear her smile over the phone even when times may be stressful. The system is very easy to use and minimal training was required. I would definitely recommend Amcheck!/p>

About our AmCheck Payroll Representative: The first thing she needs to be commended for is loyalty. How many people stay at a job for years? Not too many. She is good at what she does, so Amcheck does everything in their power to retain her and keep her there. They don't want to let a good person get away. She has done special favors for us over the years, within her authorization, of course. She is always nice and friendly - even on those days when I've called and she's been in back to back meetings AND still has a full workload ahead of her! Please continue to do everything possible to retain this employee. It will be a huge detriment to your corporation if you ever lose her!/p>

We have been using Amcheck for payroll processing for the last two years and it's been a great experience. I especially like having our own representative for asking questions, etc., instead of talking to a different person each time. All questions are answered in a timely manner, which is also a plus. I am able to access all information online, including reports and pay stubs which makes it easy to go paperless. I am very happy with the services being provided by Amcheck. /p>
