It is very helpful in saving time by sending emails automatically to selected candidates.

Paylocity

The user experience for my managers and employees is simple, clean, and direct. Allowing them to make changes, find information, and own their Paylocity Supervisor Self Service and Employee Self Service saves me a lot of time. I use this time to make improvements on the back end. For example, we are rolling out the Paylocity scheduler soon to replace Hot Schedules. The integration and ease of use will help the managers track tardiness, and absenteeism, and save their time on manual set ups and reporting. It will all be in one place, easy to use, easy to manage - that is what I like most about Paylocity.

Pros

Avature

  • Simplicity - HR specialists and recruiters using the software will be able to use data and analytics to track the progress of their prospective candidates.
  • Versatility - Avature's customer service team will work with you to build a customized workflow.
  • Flexibility - The ability to update and change the system ensures that this platform will continue to serve organizations today as well as tomorrow. As the last 24 months have shown, organizations must adapt to the changing workforce.

Paylocity

  • Integration between modules, so information entered in one place imports into the other modules. The employee & employer don't have to enter duplicate information.
  • Company Administrators can override approvals where needed - if a supervisor can't get to something, we're not stuck!
  • Tech-first support team constantly welcomes suggestions of things that can be built out on the back end to enhance system capabilities.

Cons

Avature

  • Some of the better parts of the CRM system must be purchased.
  • Reporting could be easier/better, kind of cumbersome to run a report.

Paylocity

  • Hired my employee... Do not do that again, or no matter how good your product is we will be finding another provider.
  • Enhancement requests are nice in theory, but when you are told it'll be 12-18 months terrible. You need to improve on that. Hire more programmers (and not from my employment pool).
  • Ridiculous that the application does not flow through to HR & Payroll.

    The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

    Although it is fairly easy to use, there are some processes that just don't make munch sense. For example, if an employee has 2 bank accounts and the funds are returned from one account the process to reissue is TEDIOUS and confusing. Unless you want to PAY for Paylocity to do it for you. I think the manual process should be as easy for us.

    The frustrations I have with Paylocity customer support are what drove me to leave a review in the first place so I can warn anyone considering purchasing this product. I really like the software and it has a lot of great features, but my complete distrust of their customer service has led me to rue the day I chose Paylocity to be our payroll vendor. For one thing, they are often slow to respond. That alone might be manageable, except even when I do get a response, half the time the answers are incomplete/not helpful, if not completely incorrect! Imagine waiting 90 days and paying thousands of dollars for a corrected W2 only for it to come back more incorrect than it was when you started, and not only that but they also made me question my sanity trying to convince me that they were correct when it was BLATANTLY wrong - and that's just one example! Sometimes you might be lucky to get a decent customer service rep using the chat help feature, but most of the time whoever you talk to does not seem to have any more knowledge of the system than you do. I am a patient person and I have a lot of grace for administrative errors (we're all human) but Paylocity customer service is consistently unreliable and sometimes unprofessional to boot. To their credit, the sales and implementation teams do seem really good. It seems like maybe they just can't retain good customer service reps. We've been through several account managers without ever having a good experience.

    I would make sure you have a dedicated team at Paylocity to complete the implementation. We had staff from Paylocity quit and things were not completed properly. They dropped the ball so to speak on that portion of it. we have encountered multiple issues since then and are still not using the Time off tracking to its full capabilities.

    The system is extremely innovative and easy to use, it permits a great deal of bolt-ins during a standard format so the system will be personalized to the company’s wants and of those who will be exploiting the system.

    Both ADP and Paylocity are good programs. However, the personalized service I get from the Support Team with Paylocity far exceeds my expectations. They are quick to answer my call, always helpful, and patience as I learn the processes associated with the functions that my firm uses.

    • Reduced time spent on payroll.
    • Saves time from the start with new employees by utilizing Recruiting, Onboarding, and HR & Payroll models.
    • Set up and distribution for online training is super easy. If you hire a bunch of employees at one time (even if you don't), you can have the system automatically assign certain training to the employee based on their employment type/position.
