“Knit’s automation removed the ‘payroll time wasters’ that took me away from the work I enjoy.  But more importantly, it has empowered my clients and their employees to access their portal at any time. Whether it’s viewing their paystubs, T4s, and ROEs, changing an address, or even looking at how much vacation time they have, it’s total empowerment!.”
