ClickTime
We love how customizable ClickTime is for tracking billable client and program hours. It does a great job of reporting each pay period. We simply wish the mobile interface was more feature-rich. Because we can only specify how long someone worked (and not the specific time of day those hours were at) on the mobile platform it makes it very difficult for us to tell if someone was working inside or outside of their standard business contract day.

I think Paylocity is best suited for small companies or larger companies that only have one way of processing employees. They do work very hard to specialize specific nuances needed for unusual circumstances. They are also able to integrate with other platforms to help with a more seamless process. We are learning more to be able to implement the many facets of Paylocity.

Cons
ClickTime
  • The ClickTime app works very well and is simple to use, however, I wish to see regular updates to improve the design and the layout of the app.
  • The custom reports and templates for reporting hours or expense report should be updated regularly to include more custom reports.
  • Overall, ClickTime does a good job, just a bit of work on the website design and ClickTime App would make the experience feel better while using it.

  • PTO reporting and balances could improve - would like to see current, up to date balances.
  • Some reporting could be more intuitive. I.E., When selecting parameters, it isn't easy to determine what you need.
  • It can be difficult to find specific information because the tabs/screens don't always make sense or make it easy to find what you are looking for.

We gave an 8 rating because I believe there are simple improvements Paylocity could make that would make a world of difference in an admins every day work world. We will probably renew because we are already familiar with Paylocity and how it works. It would a huge change to bring in a different HR & Payroll system at this point

Although it is fairly easy to use, there are some processes that just don't make munch sense. For example, if an employee has 2 bank accounts and the funds are returned from one account the process to reissue is TEDIOUS and confusing. Unless you want to PAY for Paylocity to do it for you. I think the manual process should be as easy for us.

The frustrations I have with Paylocity customer support are what drove me to leave a review in the first place so I can warn anyone considering purchasing this product. I really like the software and it has a lot of great features, but my complete distrust of their customer service has led me to rue the day I chose Paylocity to be our payroll vendor. For one thing, they are often slow to respond. That alone might be manageable, except even when I do get a response, half the time the answers are incomplete/not helpful, if not completely incorrect! Imagine waiting 90 days and paying thousands of dollars for a corrected W2 only for it to come back more incorrect than it was when you started, and not only that but they also made me question my sanity trying to convince me that they were correct when it was BLATANTLY wrong - and that's just one example! Sometimes you might be lucky to get a decent customer service rep using the chat help feature, but most of the time whoever you talk to does not seem to have any more knowledge of the system than you do. I am a patient person and I have a lot of grace for administrative errors (we're all human) but Paylocity customer service is consistently unreliable and sometimes unprofessional to boot. To their credit, the sales and implementation teams do seem really good. It seems like maybe they just can't retain good customer service reps. We've been through several account managers without ever having a good experience.

I would make sure you have a dedicated team at Paylocity to complete the implementation. We had staff from Paylocity quit and things were not completed properly. They dropped the ball so to speak on that portion of it. we have encountered multiple issues since then and are still not using the Time off tracking to its full capabilities.

ClickTime
ClickTime is the first product of its kind I have had to use at work. Previous methods were always based in Excel documents and involved a lot more manual and redundant work for the same end result. It would be great if there were a better tie to our project management tools for time estimation, but it does the trick.

Paylocity is more robust. It has everything in one site. Other sites we have used in the past there always seems to be something we need to use another site for, usually this is payroll that we have to have on another service. But paylocity has the payroll function and makes it easier for time cards and payroll to be all in the same place.

  • Reduced errors on payroll and the ability to fix any errors with voiding/reissuing checks. I've been able to easily get money back on voided checks when employees enter the wrong banking information.
  • We can assess our budget a lot more accurately for each account based on our cost center locations.
  • We can communicate a lot easier with our employees through Paylocity.
  • We reduced a lot of paper usage.
