Calendly

Calendly is perfect for anyone scheduling appointments. We use this for sales appointments, but I see it fitting very well for service industries such as massage, hair, and even coaching. Calendly integrates with any and all calendars and gives you the freedom to set your schedule and let your clients pick their times. You can set up custom meeting times, names, descriptions etc. The range of possibilities is very wide and is extremely user-friendly.

Paycom

Paycom allows the centralization in the cloud of all of our employee data. This allows our workforce to have access to data anywhere and at any time in real-time. Paycom allows us to retrieve information and act on it quickly. We don't have the need to have all of our HR or Payroll professionals located in one location and it allows them to remotely work from anywhere.

Pros

Calendly

  • Automation - With Calendly, everything is automated. I do not need to be informed before a meeting is scheduled with me, neither do I need to put calls across or send emails to cancel appointments. Calendly simply does the running around for me.
  • Reminders - In a business environment, it’s so easy for one to forget scheduled activity. However, Calendly ensures this doesn’t happen with me . Thanks to its notification reminders, which ensures I am always abreast with what I need to do next.
  • Re-scheduling - Calendly makes it so easy for myself or the other party to cancel scheduled appointments and postpone to a more convenient date.
  • No calls or emails needed by either party.

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

Calendly

  • I mentioned collaborative events. You can only set this up for people who are all users inside your account. So even if I have a partner who uses Calendly under his own company account, I don't think I can make a shared event with him.
  • Also mentioned already, this isn't a con of the product but a user issue: If you make openings, people will book. So you HAVE TO be disciplined and get everything on your calendar or someone will slip in a booking when you were planning to go to lunch, etc.
Joshua Freedman | TrustRadius Reviewer

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.

The initial experience with Paycom was so bad that we decided we won't be renewing anything with them and will be terminating our business relationship mid year. Issues with the implementation, the support we receive from the implementation team and the production team has been just awful and it just doesn't meet our expectations nor what we were pitched during the sales meetings.

Usability

Calendly

Based on 3 answers
I gave Calendly an 8 because overall I think it is very much user friendly even for someone who has never used anything similar. The only issue I have had with usability is what I already stated about how the settings are in sub categories making some things difficult to find at first.

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!

I only reached out to Support once but they were very prompt and easy to work with. I had some questions about setting up the follow-up emails for after people would do the interview. They were very helpful and gave assistance and we solved the issue very fast. I would definitely recommend.

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.

All the online training modules were short and straight to the point. Every module teach you how to use the system. If there is one thing they know how to do is training. We did implementation during the pandemic so all had to be done online or via zoom meetings.

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

Calendly

Square Appointments I like it as well it just doesn't have the robust ability that Calendly does. Personally, if there were an ability to do that, Square Appointments could give Calendly a run for their money for their own customers. I don't see how they could move the compete with customers that aren't theirs.Not only do I personally use Calendly but I see it all the time in my business email. It is literally few seconds to schedule. When I see Calendly, I am relieved immediately. That is how easy it is to understand their platform.

Paycom

Paycom's time and attendance is fully automated, much easier:1. To use for employees and managers2. Make changes3. Add comments4. Approve timesheets5. Has built in drop down options6. quick tabs with accrual info, calc detail and audit detail7. Adds hours with a few click for payroll processing

Return on Investment

Calendly

  • Positive: When people want to meet, I can simply send my Calendly link and it takes less than 5 seconds to do.
  • Positive: It integrates well with Zoom, which means that by default all my appointments include Zoom information for a remote call.
Jose F. Gomez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycom

  • We've been able to automate a number of our processes as we've worked with Paycom. This has saved us a huge amount of time per pay cycle.
  • Since Paycom is easy to use all employees are glad to monitor their own accounts so that the Payroll staff doesn't have to follow up on minor items.
  • Due to the ease of use of Paycom our business has more than doubled in the last 2 years.
