Martin Mucci, Paychex president and CEO, said the company made good progress in the third quarter and saw its checks per payroll increase 2 percent over last year.

“We completed our peak selling season and were pleased with our positive growth in new core payroll sales revenue,” Mucci said.

Paychex’s payroll service revenue increase 2 percent to $393.7 million, and human resources services revenue increased 10 percent to $188.7 million.

Paychex has scheduled a conference fall for 10:30 a.m. Thursday. Mucci will be participating in the call along with Efrain Rivera, senior vice president, CFO and treasurer. The call will be broadcast on the company’s website on the investor relations page.
