BizMerlin

We took the trial of 3 HR software before going with BizMerlinHR. We wanted to have a comprehensive HR solution to cover our Paperless employee records, employee onboarding, PTO, Timesheets and Employee Performance Management. We were not looking for an Applicant Tracking system and Retention management module, but when we saw the functionality and easy use we were completely sold to those modules as well. It was like add-on but the price of everything was more economical than the other software that we were reviewing

MYOB

I am very likely to recommend MYOB Payglobal I would rate this as a 9. Having MYOB Payglobal has meant that our organization can expend and grow without having to consider if our systems will be able to handle increased numbers of employees, and companies. Also the WAP system allows us to change the structure if there is a structural change within the organization.

Cons

BizMerlin

  • Could be improved by adding more advanced HR practices
  • We wish there was more flexibility for integration

MYOB

  • There are multiple ways of setting employees up which don't always result in the information flowing through to all sections.
  • It is a large system and requires those using it to fully understand some of the back end

It was like add-on but the price of everything was more economical than the other software that we were reviewing. Also, they really mean when they say "No setup fees" - because they helped us move all of our legacy data into the new system at no extra charge and helped us integrate with QuickBooks online. They definitely provide the best value of money when comparing the same set of features.
      We have been using BizMerlinHR since 2018, and both our HR managers and users are very happy.

      MYOB

      MYOB was well supported in New Zealand and came highly recommended by multiple sources. It was a system that had more modules than just Payroll and HR which meant that going forward we could add modules without having to look at changing systems. The implementation of these module could be staggered as the business need arose.

      MYOB

      • As our previous system was too small to cope with the growth that the business was undertaking implementing MYOB PayGlobal meant that we could have faith that our payroll system would pay people correctly and maintain the integrity of our employee information
      • It is easy to use
      • It is well supported
