Namely

Namely quickly becomes your go-to place for all communication. It's easy to use, easy to find, and easy to make a contribution. If you've been struggling with a dinosaur for payroll, benefits, and HRIS, you will LOVE Namely! It's simple, fresh, well-supported, progressive and communicative. If your employees would rather be moving your business forward than figuring out how to do the most mundane management tasks, Namely is for you

Pros

  • ADP Streamline works best if you have a great ADP rep on the other end for your payroll purposes. I had a fantastic rep who was very responsive.
  • The ease and security of the upload process makes things quick and easy. Especially when actually preparing the payroll for upload can be difficult.
  • The report running format when I was using ADP Streamline was extremely user friendly and easy to navigate.

  • 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

  • Training was almost non existent when I was using the service. It was easy to figure out but I could have benefitted from some detailed training to help me better use the system and all its functionality.
  • I'm not sure this is anything ADP Streamline can fix because of time differences and such but it was very much like I was on an island waiting for messages in a bottle. I would upload and it would take sometimes more than a day to get a response.
  • The process was very manual when I was using the system. I did all my payroll work off ADP Streamline and basically used it to upload and relied on the rep to enter everything correctly. I felt like I had less control than I would like. I would have preferred to have some control over what was being uploaded and entered.

  • The integration from Namely HR to Namely Payroll is lacking. There is no PTO nor salary update feeds between the products.
  • The reviews aren't intuitive for usage for peers and managers. It would be easier if there were clear links for these employees to click as opposed to looking for the appropriate screen to provide feedback.
  • The API isn't the easiest to use, and there are some components lacking that require development.

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

Alternatives Considered

I can't really answer this question as I was the user of ADP Streamline but had no input in the choosing of ADP Streamline.
Sandra Van Munster profile photo
Against other platforms, Namely was by far the best solution for us to meet our major needs of having a true partnership, open API capability, and providing an excellent user experience.

Return on Investment

  • ADP Streamline was just a function to us so I can't really say it had a positive or negative effect on our business objectives. We went with Streamline because we already were with ADP. We didn't really shop.
  • Because of the great rep we had we were able to get a more positive response from our German staff to their pay. Before I came on board there were a lot of payroll errors which had an effect on staff morale. With help from the rep we were able to improve our accuracy and pay people correctly.

  • Saves time and allows us to not to have different vendors for everything.
  • PTO, benefits, pay and employee information in one spot.
