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.

Paylocity

We have a large and complicated payroll process which we were very excited that Paylocity was equipped to handle as long as we upload our payroll correctly. It is not, however, equipped to track these complex structures within the system because bonus metrics have to be tied to the position rather than the employee. Because of this, we have to use clunky custom fields with limited functionality

Pros

Achievers

  • It promotes employee-to-employee recognition.
  • It provides a way for Management to periodically reward employees for their efforts.
  • It provides an incentive for great work as some of the Achievers rewards are incredible!
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • It has a very cool and easy to use recognition function called impressions. Instead of a simple instant message or email saying thank you, you can offer an impression saying thanks that can be categorized and made public the rest of the company when they access Paylocity. It's just a cool function that spreads thanks and engagement across the organization with little cost and effort.
  • The self service portal for employees is easy to use as well. If you need to access vacation accrual and balances, PTO requests, pay check stubs, pay information, need to change your address or name, etc. it's very easy to find and navigate. You don't need to dig or click everywhere.
  • The journal entry function is useful too for 1:1 meetings or check in meetings for manages and their direct reports. It gives an easy module to record notes, discuss topics, attach documents, or make notes of items that need to be followed up on. Not everyone here uses it, but it does help organize meetings and keep them on track.

Cons

Achievers

  • Relevance of rewards catalog
  • Exchange rate of catalog items
  • Would be nice to see deeper integration with company intranets
Michael Whatley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • The on-boarding area could be a bit less tedious- starting a new hire from recruit to hire is a bit tedious but you get used to it
  • The time clocks need to be hardwired to a running computer at all times- very old technology, even ADP lets us hardwire it to our network (so we do not have to rely on our clocks running on computer)

The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

Paylocity provides a friendly user experience with large icons on the web interface to allow ease of use. There has hardly ever been an outage on the website; the uptime is superb! Our employees provide positive feedback on their experience with using Paylocity as their time, benefits, and payroll provider.

Solid network - down for upgrades at late hours during the weekend when I am definitely not in the system to use it. Even if I was, they provide excellent advance notice.

Every time I call, their security is amazing. You have to provide company ID, your name, and your employee ID# so that they know whether or not they can speak to you or give you any information. When you have a question they are always available to walk you through whatever it is you are having trouble with. If they don't have an answer, they will take your information and get back to you in a timely manner.

The ADP platforms did not allow us as much access to our data as Paylocity. We were constantly needing to reach out to the ADP support team to run reports or fix things within the system. With Paylocity, we have significantly more access, which leads to reduced wait times and higher efficiency. Employees have also found the self-service aspect to be leaps and bounds ahead of the prior ADP system.

Return on Investment

Achievers

  • Positive: it has increased our company's ability to express gratitude for exceptional work
  • Positive: it has increased our company's overall morale
  • Negative: rewarding points for gratitude can be expensive depending on the size of the company
Michael Whatley | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paylocity

  • Paylocity has permitted our company to reduce the time commitment to payroll processing and enabled our company to reduce one position in our accounting department. It has also made our Human Resources department become more effective and reduce overtime costs.
  • Paylocity's report allow for better measuring of expenses and better financial management.
  • Through Paylocity, we are better able to serve our employees with real time information and easier access to their records at their immediate disposal.
