In August of 1983, Precision Payroll of America (PPA) processed its first payroll. Bradley CPA launched Precision Payroll to supplement their accounting clients' need for payroll assistance. Our first employee Patty Fritz (now our EVP of Operations) and our first client, Priority Logistics, we are proud to say, are still working together today. After 10 years PPA was processing 10,000 checks monthly. Then by January of 2003 PPA was at 20,000. Today we are processing over 70,000 and continue to grow. Not only are we processing for clients in Illinois, but we are now processing for clients in 42 states with employees in 49 states every week.
We began our 29th year in business on August 1, 2011. We believe in developing a long term, mutually beneficial relationship by offering our clients reliability, value, flexibility and a staff that will grow with you, just as our employees and clients have grown together over the past years. We retain over 97% of our clients annually, unheard of in the payroll industry. The main reason is our philosophy of "client first and team second." Having zero turn-over in key positions has helped our cause. Precision Payroll provides an array of services designed to mitigate risks and headaches associated with being an employer. We thank our numerous clients for guiding our innovation and supporting our efforts. For a truly rewarding relationship, give Precision Payroll a try.

Exciting New Announcement !!!
excited to announce that our members can now access our new
Business / Membership Directory as well as a new Calendar /
Online Registration page.
First, when you visit our Chamber home page you can easily click on Business/Membership Directory and you will be taken to a newly designed search page. From here you
may search for members by company name and/or business
categories. A full category drop down menu is available as well
as an improved key word search function. Once a business or
category has been displayed, new options appear as well in terms
of business information. A scrolling list of new members
appears on the right sidebar and you now have a feature that
allows you to start your own list and/or roster to save for
Second, we have added a brand new and easy to use Calendar of Events page that now allows all members to register and pay for their
luncheon, dinner, etc online with a credit card or opt for an invoice to
be sent out. No more faxing or mailing or calling in a
reservation (we'll still gladly accept) as you can now complete
your registration and receive confirmation right away. You can
view the entire calendar in a special view and print out. Also,
now you can set up a reminder to be sent directly to your inbox
for an event. Finally, you now have the option to import the
events directly into Microsoft Outlook which is especially useful
in this time of smart phone use.
Take some time and check
out both of these new features and we suggest that you utilize
them to their fullest capabilities. You can feel free to contact
us if you need help in one of the areas.
