Namely

Namely is especially well-suited for small to mid-sized companies that are looking to shift core HRIS functions under a single platform. Everything works as smoothly as advertised- payroll, benefits, time and attendance, workflows, onboarding. Especially if the employee population is comfortable with social media sites; Namely's landing page functions like an internal Facebook feed.Namely might not be well-suited for companies that have a significant employee population outside of the US . We've had some issues integrating our international employees into the core HRIS and benefits modules.

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 HRIS platform is set up very well. It is easy to understand and our employees can figure out how to get the information they need, which cuts down on questions to the finance/HR team and reduces employee stress related to their pay and benefits.
  • The onboarding and benefits enrollment features are amazing! They are so easy to navigate and we can customize them with the forms we need for our specific employee groups. We are able to get new employee onboarded very quickly. No more paper forms!
  • Many items can be customized in payroll, including deduction codes, to what is needed without the need for a consultant to step in.
  • Custom fields can be added to the HRIS platform so that all types of info can be stored and reported on. Things like T-shirt size, license plate number and food allergies are helpful things to keep record on and the employee can edit the info as needed.
  • Workflows can be created in Namely so that Managers can request things like one-off bonuses for employees without using email. The request goes straight to the needed approver. This cuts down on back and forth and lost communication.

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.

  • Namely could add a function for alerts when licenses or certificates are about to expire.
  • I would like to see a partnership with an online learning management system.
  • I would like to see a file system similar to Microsoft's OneDrive.
  • A place for online collaboration like SharePoint would be great.
  • Streamline the Time Off to be a two way conversation between payroll and HR

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

Namely is much more user-friendly and even employee friendly as the interface is so easy to navigate and clear to change and use daily. I would definitely recommend to other companies looking for a fully combined software for all functions.
