APS

They are more suited to growing, nimble companies. They are soon adding employee approval to time cards and checkin by facial recognition. Additions and changes to improve functionality might not work for a very large company like GE.

Namely

Namely might be too expensive and unnecessary for new or very small companies. Companies that are looking to grow quickly, however, will get great use from Namely. It helps keep everything organized and in one place. The Namely team really helps users to keep up with ever-changing federal and state compliance laws. They will handle a lot of payroll challenges and assist with taxes as well.

Pros

  • Ease of use of software
  • Intuitive step by step process for processing payroll
  • Reporting is easily customized
John Bellini III profile photo
  • Every person I've worked with in Namely is competent, friendly, quick, patient, and very helpful. I've never before worked with any company like this. Their customer service, professionalism, and forward thinking blow me away.
  • Namely is quick to listen to client feedback and solve problems. They're constantly adding new features, so even if it doesn't have everything you want now, there is a good chance it will.
  • Namely's platform is very user-friendly. It's easy to navigate and learn how to use. For many users, it's self-explanatory. They provide great training tools as well.
  • Namely Payroll is easy to use and provides a large variety of reports that you can access immediately. It's easy to update employee and company tax information.

Cons

  • Benefits Administration has pockets of plans that it cannot accommodate (age banded medical, benefit banks, etc.)
Tom Daly profile photo
  • I would love to see Namely roll out e-signature for things like tax forms that employees can use on a recurring basis. Currently it is available for onboarding, so I know it's coming!
  • I would love to be able to tell the employees that they can view their payslips on the mobile app, this would be an awesome feature.
  • Increase the workflow usability so that is has more functions.

I have been using the system for over a year now and feel more comfortable with the functionality of it. I have just recently implemented the benefit administration portion.

Usability

APS9.5
Based on 4 answers
In general, it's a great system to use. We were looking for simplicity and ease of use and have received raves from our employees in their ability to access and make use of the system. There is still so much more that we have yet to gain as we continue working through each of the modules.

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

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.

Alternatives Considered

We have used ADP. I have also worked with IBS Payroll solutions at another company. APS OnLine is less bureaucratic than ADP. APS is less user friendly or customer service oriented than IBS Payroll.

Namely was simply the best value considering how robust the features are. Nothing is perfect but Namely continually strives to be and we appreciate that! They've taken a dozen or more feature requests from me and I'm optimistic that they'll come through :)

Return on Investment

  • Cost wise, APS is a great price. It has been very helpful in our Cost Center Development plan.
  • The cost has stayed the same over the past few years. Each year we add a new product.
Janet Fowler profile photo
  • The customer service turn around time is amazing.
  • Employee complaints were reduced by 90%. Allowing HR to focus more on other projects.
  • Ease of use is a huge plus for employees and managers. The look and feel of Namely is simple, yet very powerful.
