    bswift

    bswift is well suited for benefit enrollment for both new hires and users looking to change or enroll in benefits during open enrollment. It is less appropriate for people looking to explore personal or additional benefits that are separate from the employer. It is more designed for benefit administrators than it is for individual users.

    Namely

    Our overall experience has been very positive. Our accounting department used to handle every issue related to HR, benefits, payroll, etc. But with the Namely platform, employees can input all information right into the website and access any information they need. As a supervisor who approves PTO/Vacations, the platform is super-easy to use.

    Pros

    bswift

    • bswift breaks down each benefit into its individual components really well.
    • bswift provides ample resources for additional support (phone numbers, emails, FAQ documents)
    • bswift makes it easy to compare the pros and cons of several benefit alternatives
    Read full review

    Namely

    • Namely has helped with our COVID sick leave response. It has made a major difference both with the weekly payroll and the 941 tax filing
    • Keeping track of our multiple PTO plans. Thank goodness for Namely, I have shredded my old PTO spreadsheets.
    • Employees like the convenience of the cell phone app. As a payroll administrator, I like the Geo Tracking tool where I can see where some are when the clock is in or out.
    • The flexibility inside of the payroll system both as you are finalizing an employee profile and when you are processing payroll is a major advantage.
    • The reports I get out of Namely in Excel format work well for me.

    Cons

    bswift

    • Reporting
    • Easy notification of new enrollments
    • Autogenerated emails
    Read full review

    Namely

    • Customer service has been largely disappointing and sometimes horrible.
    • The tax reporting team has had some major hiccups for us.
    • Some of the custom reporting filters could be improved by adding an in-between dates filter.
    • Some of the performance review tools are still confusing after 7 years.
    • Can I say customer service again?

        Namely

        Administrators and employees love Namely. It is very easy to use and streamlined. Employees stay engaged with news feed updates and enjoy all the self service options. The time cards are very easy to access and clocking in and out for non-exempt employees is a breeze. Namely is part of our family.

        Usability

        No answers on this topic

        Namely

        Namely is a user-friendly system that is continuing to improve its integration across platforms with HRIS, Benefits, Payroll, and Time. For us, a complex user with multiple clients and hundreds of hourly employees, it has been a good solution (though not without its drawbacks) and we have greatly appreciated Namely's willingness to listen to our concerns and requests for changes in the product. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Namely for any company far more simple than ours—especially small entities with most, if not all, salaried employees.

        Namely

        Unfortunately, in more recent years we've had a lot of difficulty with Namely as they've undergone a lot of internal changes. It took 4 returned emails saying the person no longer worked at Namely to find someone to help me (I finally called payroll) and it took a while to get connected with a direct source of help. Namely now has set up their "pod" feature of communication which works well for the most part, but is different. I felt spoiled when we first started with Namely, but now it feels very much like working with most large companies' help centers. There is a system to go through and you do have the option to click "urgent". In general the help is efficient, but it still takes a few days and it's hard to speak with someone directly. It is all done via online communications and is difficult to actually speak to someone on the phone. This works well for most cases, but I do feel frustrated more often than I'd like to with this type of communication. (2019/2020)

        Namely

        I was not part of the implementation of Namely. It was before my time. Prior to Namely the company used UltiPro, which is also a great system. The implementation/transition supposedly went smooth, but I cannot comment from my own firsthand experience.

        Alternatives Considered

        bswift

        We evaluated bswift and local vendors and bswift came hands down better in followinhg - support - ROI - EDI (can be better)
        Read full review

        Namely

        Namely provided certain features that we were looking for that the other vendors did not, specifically the social feed. We do not have a company intranet so we needed a place to communicate and store resources in addition to managing HR and Benefits. Namely provided that combination plus more.

        Return on Investment

        bswift

        • bswift has helped reduced the number of benefits review & explanation sessions that our HR department has had to hold
        • bswift has reduced the number of benefits related phone calls and emails to our HR team
        Read full review

        Namely

        • It gets the job done, but I can't say that I love it.
        • I can't really compare the ROI to another solution. It is certainly good enough to roll up most basic HR functions, and in that respect is totally worth it.
