Extreme™ is a complete solution for all backoffice, payroll, and HR needs.

Company History

Accountix was founded in 1992 by Keith Kelly to develop software for the Employee Leasing (now known as PEO) industry.  Our first product was an MS-DOS based application.  To keep up with a fast-moving market, we soon released a Windows based version in 1999, known as PEO Super Pro.

While our PEO Super Pro product was very stable and reliable, it began to show its age as Microsoft’s operating system continued to evolve.  In 2006, we began development on a new product to replace our legacy PEO Super Pro.  We made a switch in our software development tools, opting to use the newer Microsoft C#.NET programming language and move away from Delphi.  Our new product would be built using Microsoft’s SQL Server database as well.

In 2012, we released our new product, Extreme Payroll System, to a few select clients.  Also, in 2012, Accountix founder Keith Kelly made the decision to retire.  In June of that year, he passed the reigns of the company to longtime employees Quinn Davis and Jake Smith, to take over and continue leading the company forward.  Quinn took over as President and CEO, leading our support and sales teams; Jake took over as Chief Technology Officer leading our development team.

In 2014, our product Extreme went into full release.  Our clients use Extreme today to process payroll for thousands of their clients and hundreds of thousands of employees.  We continue to support Extreme and continue to implement new features to enable our clients to grow their businesses.

Founder

Accountix Software | Kieth Kelly, Founder

Keith Kelly

In 1992, over 25 years ago, Keith and his son Shane Kelly started developing software for the PEO Industry.   Of course, it was then called the Employee Leasing Industry and it was in its infancy.  Our first system was done in MS-DOS, and for a new system, and to enter into an industry that we knew very little about, the system sold fairly well.

To keep up with the fast-moving software market, it wasn’t long before we developed a Windows version.  In about 1996 we released that version.  By that time, we had a much better handle on what was needed for the industry.  Also, the Employee Leasing market was starting to grow.

Keith retired in July 2012.
