If your company needs to move into becoming completely electronic, as well as the option of having it being remote if needed, this is the way to go. ClearCompany will hold your hand and help you every step of the way to becoming just that! It can be a difficult task to change so much but having their team to meet with you weekly until you have everything up and running was the best experience I could have asked for.

Heartland Payroll+

Because we're a small business, I can't tell if Heartland Payroll is appropriate for a larger operation. For a small business, it's like having your own HR department. You can place an ad, accept resumes, and hire directly through their Heartland Hires platform. This is perfect for a small company like ours. For a larger company, it may not be robust enough.

Pros

ClearCompany

  • Real-time updates shared across the software with remote users. It allows us to effectively manage and track candidates workflows and status within the onboarding process. This helps us effectively communicate and keep hooks in the candidate without having them fall through the cracks.
  • ClearCompany is able to customize and report to fit our company. We are in a particular industry where our time to fill, hiring costs and other metrics vary from time to time. In order to get an accurate report, ClearCompany has gone above and beyond to customize our reports and give us the data we need with a click of a button.
  • ClearCompany is always in constant communication and willing to assist. The feedback from the support team is almost instantaneous. I have the direct number to my customer care agent and her manager as well. It's nice to know they are there to help at a moment's notice. The support team has a great chat feature that allows me to send a message while i'm on the phone. They are quick to respond and always friendly.

Heartland Payroll+

  • Cheap payroll processing but [in my opinion] you get what you pay for
  • [In my experience] great ability to frustrate their customers
  • Geat for the economy because [I feel] they hire so many different people and [in my experience] they don't hang around [so] you don't know who your rep is

Cons

ClearCompany

  • Implementation can be very lengthy and not always feasible for companies looking for a speedy integration
  • Functionality of program overall is very antiquated.
  • Response time is typically okay, but the time frame for resolutions to issues with the system can be over a span of weeks.
  • Not as user-friendly as other comparable ATS; missing a lot of basic bells and whistles that make the system easy to navigate.
Daniela Whitfield | TrustRadius Reviewer

Heartland Payroll+

  • Sometimes I don't receive the email to remind me to process payroll.
  • The local rep that helped with the setup is no longer with the company and I don't have anyone to contact locally if needed.
  • I wish there was a one click button so that I could just repeat the same payroll as last time.

I had a great relationship with my first customer success manager. When I first started, she helped me navigate the system and was always available to answer any questions. They have provided great support throughout the last 2 years of me using the system. I attended a ClearCompany conference and they were incredible at providing support and showing how to best utilize the system,

Alternatives Considered

ClearCompany

ClearCompany is the most straightforward product I have used. Every other ATS has had too many bells and whistles that show on your website and aren't used. Many are really difficult to navigate or don't have offer letter creation or interview scheduling capabilities.

Heartland Payroll+

I like the personal communication with my own rep, the onboarding, the price, and the additional login for CPA. None of these were offered with the payroll company we used prior to Heartland Payroll.

Return on Investment

ClearCompany

  • My goodness, the ROI on the product is astronomical. We wouldn't be in business if it weren't for ClearCompany. Our old way of doing things, through Indeed ads and Craigslist Jobs was not attracting the volume and quality that we were looking for. Communication was a mess and HR generalists were stepping on each other's toes by offering the same position to multiple candidates. ClearCompany has streamlined the process and has helped our company grow by 34% in the last 18 months!

Heartland Payroll+

  • [In my experience] not one bit. Just frustrates me for 13 years.
