About PayNW

PayNW is a Washington-based provider of Payroll, Time and Attendance, and HR systems and services. As the local alternative to the large national payroll service bureaus, PayNorthwest partners with its clients to achieve superior results, reduced costs, and reduced risk associated with administering payroll-related functions.

PayNW’s market-leading Lumina™ platform provides a single source (one database, one interface, one user experience) for managing Payroll, Time & Attendance, and HR together, achieving significant gains in efficiency and accuracy. PayNW offers a unified platform designed from the ground up with a single database/single employee record architecture, common user interface, configurable workflows, easy-to-use reporting, modern APIs, and world class security.

We believe superior technology is necessary but not sufficient. It takes a committed, knowledgeable partner to get you all the way there. From our Smooth Start implementation process to our dedicated ongoing support team, PayNW’s expertise in delivering its world-class HCM cloud platform to meet YOUR unique needs today and tomorrow is what distinguishes PayNW as a partner rather than a vendor and what helps you get where you want to go.
