About Us
Why You'll Love Zap Payroll
Success stories from our Clients!
I  am a new small business owner and was totally overwhelmed by the idea of processing payroll. Cheri makes it so simple and easy! She is always available if I have questions...she walks you through it so thoroughly the first time. The HR options available are amazing! The amount of information and help available makes it so I don't really have a need to consider an HR employee. Zap Payroll has given me the confidence in an important area that made me very nervous, not anymore!
Susan DeLong
Owner, Grits Marketing Group
I was looking for an alternative to the large payroll provider I was using. I only had 2 employees yet payroll took 30 mins to an hour every 2 weeks. I also had to spend forever generating reports itha tool that was horrible to use to get my accountant reports. NO MORE! Zap Payroll has dropped my stress level and made my life considerably more easy with their "Zapped" services. Payroll is "1 click" easy! Whenever I have a question, I have a single point of contact, the lovely Cheri who never fails to address my concerns quickly and effectively.
Ross Taylor
Owner, Alameda Internet Marketing
If you are a small business owner with 1+ employees, READ THIS! Introducing Superhero Cheri. She has devoted her time to call me if payroll is due and I have not been on top of it. She has helped me face to face and came in frequently to help me set things up. She is very patient and gives you all the information you need without overwhelming you. She is affordable and gives better service. I don't know what I did without her
Joe Dalipe
Owner, Island Print Express
Zap Payroll was the answer to my prayers! Cheri, helped me through a very stressful time between transitioning my sole prop business to an S corp with regards to payroll.. She answered every question and was on top of everything! She made the hole process so easy as I know it shouldn't have been if I used another payroll outfit. I was surprised how affordable it was and how much hand holding I got as this is my first venture outside of the already prepared payroll corporate world. Zap Payroll has a client for life and I would highly recommend that you give them a call!

Cheri volunteers her spare time supporting the business community through roles such as the Vice Chair of the Alameda Chamber of Commerce and President of the Greater Alameda Business Association. As a resident of Alameda for 25 years, she enjoys hiking the area and kayaking whenever possible. She loves big family dinners and quiet times on the couch with her fur babies.
