Achievers

Achievers is well suited as a rewards and recognition platform - which is what it was designed for. It's less appropriate for a company intranet to share files and documents with one another. Allowing users to do both on one platform would be a great solution for bridging the gap between corporate communication and rewards.

Namely

Quite bluntly, there isn't a more robust solution out there for the price for mid-size businesses. There are some good solutions for companies that don't need a custom HRIS but Namely is really built for companies that will scale up.

Pros

  • Excellent selection within points catalog
  • Easy to use interface
  • Social media platform allowing for recognition to be seen company-wide
Michael Whatley profile photo
  • The onboarding piece is probably the strongest. Our new hires are able to enter their HRIS framework profile data, as well as read and sign electronically for our handbook, COBRA statement, NDA, and security/privacy policies.
  • Easy to look at...we've used some products in the past that didn't have a good user experience, which leads to non-usage for my technically proficient team.
  • The shout-outs on the main page are great, as folks can clearly see anniversaries and birthdays and comment accordingly.

Cons

  • Relevance of rewards catalog
  • Exchange rate of catalog items
  • Would be nice to see deeper integration with company intranets
Michael Whatley profile photo
  • The one piece of the onboarding process that could be automated (right now it's manual in Namely) is the tax forms for new employees and their direct deposit information. Those still have to be completed on paper and submitted manually.
  • The home feed could be a little more interactive, like being able to tag employees in posts, having emails sent to employees when someone's replied to a post, etc etc.

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works

They have always (3 years worth) been extremely responsive and will escalate it on their own if they don't have an answer

Simply put, Namely met the most needs from our list for the right price. The team was great (we miss Regina) during presentation and implementation. TribeHR didn't have the review process according to anniversary dates, which we need. Proliant didn't have the right API availability, Namely has a far better UI than Paychex. Bamboo was the closest, but at the time didn't have all the product integrations we need for our ATS, benefits portal, and internal reporting software.
