Welcome to PayNW

As your business begins using our platform following the transition from Payroll Systems, we wanted to introduce ourselves and make sure you’re aware of our philosophy and capabilities. 

About PayNW

For over a decade, PayNW has worked with more than 1,000 small to midsized businesses across the United States. We are proud to now be serving the cannabis-related business (CRB) space and be a leader in this growing industry. 

Our unified, one-stop shop HCM platform offers the breadth needed to more efficiently and productively manage and engage your workforce. PayNW strives to combine deep expertise in its platform with the ability to listen and understand your unique requirements and circumstances, and we hope you’ll view it as an extension of your own business. 

You can see all the services PayNW offers and how we can best assist you and your business here. We will continue to provide you with the same level of service, quality, and reliability you are accustomed to from Payroll Systems. 

We have a relationship with NorthBay Credit Union, the same bank Payroll Systems has used for years. This means no due diligence. We are able to transition your service seamlessly.

We operate a one-source, full HCM platform that will enable you to add modules such as TLM and full HRIS with no additional software or logins.

Our service model is the same as Payroll Systems’, with dedicated reps assigned to each account.

In the coming weeks and months, we’ll be providing more information on this acquisition and how you can best utilize its services. In the meantime, feel free to contact Troy Puyear at or Cruz Castillo at with any questions.
