CEIPAL Corp

The Functionality and Quality of this software package are nice. the help and force support from this software package and therefore the CEIPAL force team helped to unravel the problems two-faced by the shoppers. Initially it absolutely was troublesome on behalf of me to use this software. As there were terribly minute problems with the layers of the things within Ceipal.

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

CEIPAL Corp

  • Employee Management
  • Human Resources
  • Onboarding
  • Compliance
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.

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?

      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.

      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)

      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

      CEIPAL Corp

      CEIPAL force over straightforward Cloud HR application with functions like immigration accounts receivable and integrations available. Simple configuration to line up the corporate, workflow and aboard staff makes it likable. A Low & versatile rating backed by support from real individuals makes it enticing.

      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

      CEIPAL Corp

      • Data safety
      • affordable cloud HR
      • Mass mailing
      • Submission Records

      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.
