Best HCM software I've used!

This is the best HCM software that I've used compared to ADP, Sage Abra, Paychex, and PlanSource.

Pros

The ease of use is great, the software is so user friendly and easy to learn.

Cons

There are a couple of functionalities that I wish we had within the system and that the report write tool would be easier to use.

Alternatives Considered

Paycom and Paycor

Reasons for Choosing Paylocity

We wanted a more user friendly and update software planform.

Switched From

PlanSource

Reasons for Switching to Paylocity

One central hub for all HR-related needs

Paylocity overcomes the problem of disjointed HR procedures by centralizing them under one roof. This increases efficiency and decreases ambiguity. Additionally, the mobile access capability allows us to operate from anywhere, greatly increasing our adaptability.

Pros

The intuitive layout of Paylocity streamlines daily operations. Complex procedures like payroll and human resources administration are simplified. In addition, it provides me with in-depth reports that inform my judgment.

Cons

It's not easy to adjust Paylocity so that it meets all of my company's requirements. Due to its generalizability, it doesn't always mesh with our processes.

It Gets the Job Done

This would be a good option for a smaller company with a fairly simple business structure. It was fairly user friendly.

Pros

It is a fairly simple system to use. Most changes in the system are linear and step by step, walking you through the process.

Cons

Customer support was slow to respond and our assigned rep was often changing, which meant they had limited knowledge of the system. Ultimately we transitioned to another platform that offered more robust features such as scheduling.

Great Deployment Team, Ok Product

Good platform for large companies, too big of a platform for small companies

Pros

There are a ton of functions compared to what we switched over from which was just using QuickBooks Timesheets. Lots of great functions if you are a large company needing the HR management assets.

Cons

It is too much for how big our company is, while the team at Paylocity is awesome, and really helped us set up the platform... We just dont need something this high end yet, and cannot make the switch back to quickbooks because its in the middle of the tax year.

All HR processes can be automated using Paylocity

One-stop payroll processing for maximum convenience. It files payroll taxes and does the math automatically. It's also a great tool for getting new hires up and running. Because of how easily it can be done now, no special training is required.

Pros

Excellent service is provided to customers. Every time I've had to contact customer support, I've been blown away with the kind of service I've received. I've never had to wait more than a minute to get an answer to a query I've had.

Cons

There isn't anything about Paylocity that bothers me. Everything is explained clearly and in terms that a newbie can grasp. Those links to assistance are a big help. Additionally, navigating the menus and links is simple. Simple and obvious in its construction.
