Ascentis Timekeeper

Ascentis Timekeeper is very well suited for organizations with highly complex configurations. Less useful for very small organizations.

Paycor

Paycor is a stable software that fits in human capital force management and payroll administration. One specific scenario where Paycor really helps is in submission of tax and other statutory deductions in a comfortable thereby lowering any lawsuits that maybe leveled against your company for failure to oblige with statutory tax deductions among others remittances

Pros

  • Flexibility in configuration
  • Ease of use
  • Reporting capabilities
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • We have employees in different states. They are very adept at handling all the different withholding requirements. I have experienced the same excellent service when there are special issues with visa withholding details.
  • Paycor has patiently addressed all my questions when I call in and in a very timely and professional manner. They know their business inside and out. And they are always patient and pleasant to speak with.
  • I love having Paycor do this payroll. When I was attempting to do it myself, I was getting constant notices from the state or IRS that this or that hadn't been done properly. I'm happy to report I no longer have that problem. The money spent on Paycor services is well worth it.

Cons

  • International configuration
  • Payroll export is a little cumbersome
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • A while back, Paycor went from having a dedicated person for our company to a team. I do miss the personalized care, but I have to say, I'm still getting a great level of care and competency.
  • Creating our own reports was a wonderful feature, added in the last few years. Perhaps some of those could be named, such as Unemployment Insurance Audit.

I gave this a 9 because although some areas could be a little better, it is still an easy program to use once you get used to it. And they are always updating. Paycor lets users suggest changes and other users can vote on them. I have seen several changes that I either suggested or voted on get implemented. There is nothing like the end user to know what is helpful and what isn't, and Paycor appears to listen to that.

I give support a 9 because it is consistent and as quick as I would expect. If I have a question that has to be answered right now (when I am in the middle of processing a payroll, for example) I will call instead of email and the response is excellent. If I have an issue or question that just needs to be addressed but isn't critical, I email that and don't indicate that I need immediate assistance. This has worked well for me.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

Alternatives Considered

Ascentis Timekeeper is superior in it's ability in its configuration of highly complex organizational policies.
Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
Basically, Paycor is easier to use and has better client support that I was getting before. I chose to move our payroll to Paycor because I needed something that was more intuitive, and I needed to know that when I had a question or a problem - especially on processing week - I would be able to get help without waiting hours for it.

Return on Investment

Karen Halladay SPHR, SHRM-SCP, CCP, CTM profile photo
  • We have been able to eliminate many external spreadsheets and databases and consolidate data into Paycor
  • Automated carrier feeds have simplified benefit administration and reduced our workload
  • Online open enrollment has been a huge time saver for us and our employees have been very happy with the level of employee self service available
  • Paycor's ability to export data to other products has allowed us to synchronize data across multiple platforms within the company and assure that changes made in Paycor are reflected in our other systems.
