APS

APS is well suited for everyday payroll processing, time scheduling and report writing. I can't say enough good things about the representatives being local

Paylocity Web Pay

As a mid-sized company, we need an enterprise-style system but without the cost and development associated with custom software. Paylocity gives us the functionality of many of the enterprise-level systems out there but at a more reasonable price and without the development requirements. With that said, there are some unique situations for our business that the system cannot handle and Paylocity will not adopt them because of their unique nature.

Pros

  • Main thing: The thing that I find so helpful are the people who work at APS. I like the friendliness of the local (Shreveport, LA) staff and the quick turnaround to problem solving. They communicate!
  • The payroll program is easy to use, easy to correct with a user friendly viewing format.
  • Report writing program is very user friendly to technically challenged people like me.
  • I like the ongoing updates that APS is doing.

  • Customer service. We're assigned a dedicated account manager, but there is also a broader team that is aware of our account and can assist with the Account Manager is not available. I've always found them to be very knowledgeable and helpful.
  • User friendly. Both our management team and employee users have found the platform to be more user friendly than our past systems. I have to answer very few questions about how to access areas of the site.
  • Many options. We started with Web Pay's base services, but were able to add advanced HR functions, performance management, and onboarding within the same platform. It's nice to have a single solution rather than multiple vendors pieced together.

Cons

  • I wish the employee search bar was always open at top so I didn't have to go into the employee consul to search for an employee.
  • As much as I love the report manager, I wish the report builder would allow me to have access to ALL of my information to write a report. As it stands with the 5 main topics, I may have to run two reports to get the information that I need.
  • ACA reporting is helpful but I wish the FTE report would downloadable as a CSV or Excel file.

  • Paylocity needs to improve significantly in working with new clients in the setup and migration process. Paylocity does almost nothing in leading the conversation of discovering new clients needs, what information will be migrated forward in the most efficient manner and helping the new client be aware of what the responsibilities of the new client will be in the new set up. Too much in the process of transition is discovery of what isn't functioning as it needs to be and then conversation exchanges to determine fixes. A more involved upfront process could highlight for Paylocity these client needs and move the transition process forward with less bumps in the road. Setup for Employer Retirement Match, Workers Comp and other ancillary measurements associated indirectly with payroll processing have suffered from this inefficient process.
  • Paylocity provided for too rapid transition of account reps during the set up process, considering some of the inefficiencies in their aid process. Also a change in personnel hampered our company's onboarding to their systems as projects for updates were sometimes left hanging or needing to be addressed anew.
  • The Paylocity system indeed has great flexibilities and seems capable of handling all our needs -- eventually. You have to push for solutions at times because some of the account reps are learning their system themselves and give the answer something can't be done as a solution, but it can be. Some of the ancillary measures related to payroll -- Retirement Match, Workers Comp and nonprofit funding for Unemployment costs are examples in which we were told what we were seeking couldn't be done, but as further answers evolved, the system can provide for our needs.

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.

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 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.

Paylocity has a far more robust reporting tool than our company had with ABRA, which allows us to manage financial information more effectively. Paylocity also has potential to handle employer expenses more effectively and provides the online access for employees to timesheet and employee information that ABRA did not. It frees up time for our Payroll Accountant to perform other tasks and makes the processing of payroll more efficient and seamless.
