Automatic Business Computing is a privately owned payroll firm that started in the heart of Silicon Valley in 1980. It was founded by Grant Shaw, an engineer at Hewlett-Packard with an entrepreneurial dream. His sons, Michael and David, have followed their father's lead into the business and now manage the company and daily operations.


Our offices are now in Rocklin, California, strategically located to the Sacramento and Bay Area markets. With our technology, we can and do serve customers all around the United States, whether it is an entrepreneur just starting a new business, a catering company serving clients in your local area, or a national corporation looking to expand your business.


When you're looking for full service payroll, you need a company that is both reliable and trustworthy. We've been helping businesses with full service payroll for over 4 decades. We know the laws, we know the processes, we know the best practices, and most importantly, we have the experience to help you find an option that best meets your needs, which is difficult to replicate elsewhere. We have helped thousands of small businesses successfully fulfill their employment obligations efficiently, accurately, and reliably. We take pride in our associations with major brands, like McDonald's, Subway, and Waddell & Reed, but we equally value our many small clients who excel in their respective markets. We see ourselves as part of your team and value the relationships we have, many of which have endured for more than 20 years! 


We offer all this at reasonable prices, easy to understand, and significantly more affordable than some other big national corporations out there. We offer the same technology they offer, but we couple it with much better, personal service. We actually speak to our clients, and we really care about your business. To them, you are another one of their tens of thousands of accounts; to us you are our livelihood. With them, you get fancy marketing; with us, you get fancy service. Our drive is to listen to our clients' workforce management needs and then help them achieve their goals with the tools and support necessary for success.

We're always looking to improve our services, so we'd love to hear how we can serve you better. If you have any questions, here is our customer service phone number: (877) 297-5460
