The UI could use an update. Companies that are fixated on the "look" of the platform may be drawn to other systems. Should do an annual users conference with industry-specific breakout sessions.

Justworks

Justworks is great for a small business with a remote work force, limited resources for HR and benefits but with the need to stay compliant and offer competitive benefits. For larger companies I don't know that Justworks would be the best fit and it may be better to go with an all in one system that can manage multiple aspects of HR including performance, recruiting, and benefits.

Pros

  • Still has a dedicated personal support staff with broad product knowledge.
  • They do not release a feature until it has been fully vetted - much fewer bolt-on solutions.
  • Has embraced third parties (brokers, CPAs) as partners in using the platform.

  • Amazing customer support that responds quickly to any questions
  • Competitive priced benefits
  • Nationwide benefit coverage for a dispersed and remote work force

Cons

  • System can get bogged down when a lot of users are reviewing/correcting payroll hours, such as "Critical Monday", the day managers go in and review/approve times from the previous 2 week period.
  • I try to use on my Iphone 6 and IPad from home and am unable to run reports from those devices. I can see data in it's raw form but when you try to drill down, the device will not process the commands.

  • None that I can think of, yet. It's not an easy process to learn all the pros/cons/risks in the HC Benefits/Payroll/Compliance sector but that's why we chose Justworks.

Support

Based on 3 answers
There is one primary account representative that we contact on a regular basis. If she is unavailable, there are others on her team. It does seem that our implementation was more complex than others that have been installed, so fixes are not as easily remedied.

Implementation

APS8.7
Based on 4 answers
It would have been helpful to understand the phases of the implementation up front so I could have prepared differently for enrollments, billing, and transfer of information to payroll. At the end of the day, I'm happy with the selection and the system and anticipate I will like it better as we go along. We have done a number of other system implementations in the past few years, and this has been pretty painless, however, I've had a few surprises.

Alternatives Considered

We were previously with ADP and while the functionality improved when we moved to the Workforce Now version, we still wanted an improved and more economical solution for integrating payroll and HR with benefits management. APS Online offers that.
Karla Hebert profile photo
Justworks, outside of employee tracking, offers an entire suite of Human Resources tools for a relatively inexpensive price. Although these other tools may be a little more in depth to certain HRMS applications we need, none are as broad and impactful in our business, especially for the price point. Justworks is a great value, and they provide great support.
