Avature

As it is a very complete tool, with many features and that sometimes ends up being a little complex, I would recommend it only for medium-sized companies. Perhaps in a large company, it could complicate the processes a little instead of making it easier. But it's a great tool!

Paycom

Paycom is an excellent all-in-one HR tech solution suitable for most enterprise companies. Limitations may result from a lower tier package chosen by an employer or an employer simply not updating the platform completely. Small to medium-sized businesses may be better suited with ADP products. Paycom is a solid choice to optimize HR management, payroll, and talent acquisition.

Pros

Avature

  • Search capabilities - ability to pipeline top talent.
  • Communication with hiring managers in the hiring manager portal - resumes/notes don't get lost in email and are always accessible to anyone involved in the hiring process.
  • Ability to customize - we've been able to change work flows for different needs, and different business groups as well.

Paycom

  • Provides easy-to-use payroll software that is structured to help eliminate human error, allowing me to self-manage payroll with complete accuracy.
  • Automatically generates the necessary and easy-to-access reports relating to wages and payroll taxes paid.
  • Offers exceptional customer service with dedicated representatives who are very professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and courteous.
  • Received thorough personal instruction/training on the use of the online software program.

Cons

Avature

  • Easily over-engineered. While it's great to be able to customize, there are times where there are too many choices.
  • Would like to see it integrate better with our HRIS system.
  • Still a lot of manual steps in the workflow.
Read full review

Paycom

  • Would like to see more options when creating a custom report.
  • Clocking in 1 minute after the start of a schedule, takes away half an hour from the employee. We are consistently pushing the clock back one minutes so that employees don't lose that half hour. This only happens on our morning shift; not our Swing Shift.
  • On anniversary dates the system changes the vacation accrual but does not enter the additional lump sum of 40 hours vacation to the employee's account. We go in and enter the lump sum manually.
  • It is difficult to reprogram our time clock bells. Over time, the bell rings 1 or 2 minutes earlier than the actual time.

      We've made the mistake of moving away from Paycom to a PEO which had made a lot of promises, that they could not keep. Less than a year after that transition, we returned to Paycom and are happier than ever.

      The system is very user friendly. Once you navigate where your information is stored under the forms you are golden. While the training amplified my capabilities and knowledge, I could have jumped into the system without and training and managed just fine. This probably one of my favorite parts about Paycom!

      Paycom is the best payroll and HR software I have utilized in my 30 plus years as a CPA working in private industry. I am always confident in the software and my support team. The software is updated on an ongoing basis automatically. Paycom relieves a lot of stress over this vital area of any business.

      Not at all satisfied it was a nightmare we spent over 8 months with the implementation team having issues after issues all related to the Puerto Rico regulations (half my employees are in Puerto Rico) and at the end we were moved over from the implementation team to the production team without all the issues being resolved

      Alternatives Considered

      Avature

      Avature is much better than OpenHire! OpenHire didn't give us the ability to share resumes or notes through the system and was very complicated to keep track of candidates that applied to multiple jobs or duplicate candidates. Was also very archaic in the interfacing and usability. Avature gave us many more options to customize our system.

      Paycom

      I've used other products like ADP in other jobs and Paycom is more user friendly, more secure and I don't have to use multiple logins to access and approve my data. Paycom is better from my POV. I remember when using ADP that I had a login for my payroll and a different login for benefits (with a different company, which didn't make sense to me). I felt like accessing my info via ADP was clunky and not as seamless and user-friendly as I have with Paycom

      Avature

      • Easier to keep clean data for OFCCP or AAP audits

      Paycom

      • As a department of time, the ease of the reports saves time to concentrate on other areas of HR.
      • The onboarding process has cut the former manual process by 50%
      • The Check Approval feature ensures that payroll information is correct and no adjustments need to be made after the employee is paid.
