From 1975's Bookkeeping Assistance to Present-day Primepoint
In 1975, Bea and Al Bothwell, Sr. started Bookkeeping Assistance for a handful of small business clients who needed bookkeeping services. Together they provided these services for several years. Gradually, some of their clients wanted assistance with their payroll needs and with the advent of personal computers it became desirable to automate the payroll process.
Shortly after Jim joined the team, the growing company and its quickly advancing technology needed a new image. Therefore in 1998 dvPayroll & HR (along with a new look and company logo) became the trading name of Delaware Valley Payroll. As the company continued to grow, so did the need for additional office space to accommodate the additional staff. The business moved to a larger office on US Route 130 in Bordentown, New Jersey, in which dvPayroll & HR continued to expand.
In November 2000, Dave, Alex, their middle brother Bill, and Jim Jacob formed Primepoint, LLC to become the technology engine behind dvPayroll & HR. With the help of a skilled development team and experienced operations employees, Primepoint started the development of a new payroll processing and HR management system to replace the company’s previously developed technology that had been in service since 1994. The new systems had to be built around a robust and scalable database, support a large number of users, and contain security features that would protect data and maintain client confidentiality. The development team quickly met the company’s initial goals, allowing Primepoint to start serving customers with its new technology in 2001. Since then the development team has continued to advance the technology and created systems that enable Primepoint to save customers significant time and money.
The Primepoint systems are designed on the SaaS model, meaning that the application and the data are maintained on Primepoint’s servers. This gives the client the ability to access their account from any location over the Internet, and gives Primepoint an easy method to continually upgrade the technology. Each user is always using the most updated versions of the systems.
In the fall of 2010, Primepoint achieved a new milestone in the company's development when it moved to a new location totaling approximately 22,000 sq. ft. of office space. Besides giving Primepoint more space, the new location made possible a more robust infrastructure that will enable the company to meet its current growth plans.
