    Clockify is well suited for remote-based employees so employers can track their time worked. It is great for tracking time for billable client work as well as non-billable work.

    Paylocity is simply the best payroll and tax reporting service I have ever used. In addition to these vital functions, it does a host of additional things with excellence including time and attendance reporting, 401(k) integration & automatic reporting, and benefits administration, all supported by a stellar customer service team

    Pros

    COING, Inc

    • Clockify records exact times on a per project basis when you click Start/Stop.
    • User interface is very easy. It is easy to add a project on the fly, change the times I just recorded if I forgot to click Stop for example. The interface is intuitive and gives me the flexibility I need.
    • Reporting gives me everything I need from times, hours per project, billable or not, per client and any tags I've created. This provides enough flexibility for many different use cases.

    • Payroll is easy and well integrated with Time and Labor.
    • The support staff is exemplary; probably the best I have ever worked with.
    • Paylocity is proactive in addressing issues of law and the marketplace. They are constantly evolving to meet the current needs of its customers.

    Cons

    COING, Inc

    • interface in general could be more user-friendly
    • there could be better organization across different " clients"
    • should be allowed to change rate for different tasks on free version

    Paylocity

    • Payroll implementation was not planned. This should take plenty of time asking questions and understanding needs. Instead, huge misses created additional work, which four months later is still not complete and still causing issues.
    • Mid-payroll functionality is a must. Employees start, leave, have babies, get raises, etc., in the middle of the pay period. This is how a business must operate - especially in an environment where labor shortages are common - and your software needs to handle it.
    • Time off accrual and tracking are abysmal. This needs to be streamlined, be easier for employees to use, easier for managers to use and must actually calculate the correct amounts. Currently we have to hand-calculate vacation payouts every time an employee leaves because the system is never up to date (by design, for some reason).
    • Your service team cannot help with programming errors and implementation issues. Our implementation team is now ghosting us, so we have no useful support. Requests for help correcting errors seemingly go into a black hole.

    The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

    Usability

    COING, Inc

    I can use it effectively on day 1. Day 3 I added more options and back-filled my previous time tracking. I saw how to add Projects and clients and found a way that works well for me. I ran a report for the 3 days I was using it and extrapolated how it would work after 6 months. I saw benefits to being able to search anything, and run reports using several filters including user defined tags, clients, projects

    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.

    Reliability and Availability

    COING, Inc

    I have never had an issue logging in or it not being available. I use Clockify every work day during the week, frequently starting/stopping projects. I've had past experience with other systems that suddenly aren't usable for an hour and that is something I have never experienced with Clockify. They are doing something right on their backend. Nice job, Clockify folks

    Paylocity

    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.

    Alternatives Considered

    COING, Inc

    Harvest is very similar to Clockify. The only difference is that Harvest also has an invoicing and billing system built into it. So if you're billing your clients based off of time directly, Harvest may be a better option as far as that goes. Of course, Harvest only has minimum billing increments of 6 or 10 minutes, there is no 10-minute option so that's something where Clockify has them beat. They are both very easy to use.

    I ran payroll for years through QuickBooks, both the desktop and the online version. QuickBooks is very user-friendly and works great for companies that are smaller in size. I would only use QuickBooks for a company that maybe has less than 25 people employed. Paylocity is a great tool for us because we are all over the US, in 6 of our different locations; it works great for everyone in our company. Each location is a different size, and since COVID, the majority of us here have been working at home only. I can confidently process payroll even with people all over versus just in one office. It is a very smooth process!

    Scalability

    COING, Inc

    Because it feels light on the wire and runs so smoothly with great up-time. I have to assume that the same is true as it scales. I'm a single user so maybe I don't see if there are any scalability issues. With the way it seems architected to run so quickly across many platforms (desktop, mobile, web, browser plug-in), I have to think that it is using recent technology that provides scalability options

    • Positive - saved HR 50% of its time due to streamlining Admin functions. Period.
    • Positive - saved managers at least 10% of their total time by reducing admin functions (they can manage people through phones)
    • Positive - reduced payroll FTE by 1.5 in first 3 months due to automation
