For your size company you probably want to keep the payroll outsourced. If you
require more info than your company is providing, see if they will provide the
payroll info on disk and  slice'n'dice the payroll info on your own.  You
should also be able to get a good deal from your outsourcer as you are not
multi-state which makes payroll processing much much easier.   If you want to
look at inhouse packages, get a lot of references as the vendor has to keep up
on all states requirements, you never know when you may get that employee that
may live over the state line.  The two I have mainly worked with Infinium and
Software Plus, each have their good and bad points, but be prepared for cost
and overhead (pr mgr/spvr + clerk) as overhead.  The clerk you probably
already have, but the workload will increase when you take on the additional
reporting  and tax functions.

If you have been with your outsourcer a while, see if they have any new
options which may increase the outsourcers value, like a HR module that ties
into the payroll which allows you to at least standardize your employee info
functions, possibly cutting down on data entry into seperate PY and HR
packages.  Also if you do switch outsourcers investigate to get the real
price, inclusive of price to print data ( I've seen price per line) and get
tapes/disks of your data so that if you need to synchronize a inhouse employee
database it does not cost a couple of hundred dollars to get your data and
more money to get a file layout.

Good Luck with this one, the numbers are tough and when that VP's check is
three cents off......
