CloudPay
In my organization, we have replaced all paperwork with this software, for the case of payroll, treasury, or on-demand payment. And from the backend, we have requested to enhance the feature like deductions and reimbursements. So in this way, it comes as a single tool to automate the whole payroll process. Which can be accessed, stored, update, and monitored from anywhere. So the whole organization and communications seem just to be a click away. Since we have switched to the cloud pay for payroll management, a lot of finance things are still there which need to be integrated with this system to make everything intact and altogether but cloud pay, as of now, do not have room to accommodate, and that's an issue to us, as a manager. So it's a request and suggestion as well to consider other finance-related things and try to fit in the same application, I know it's a big ask, but can be tried.

It's really great for us. Our payroll administrator retired and we decided to absorb that function within HR. Paycor takes care of the taxes and much of the extra details she had done previously allowing that transition to be possible. The software is easy to use and my managers have taken on more with timesheet review. If a company has really complex differentials it might not be ready for them, yet. We have one that I have to do manually but I'm hopeful they will be able to add it in soon!

  • Scheduling for management is well organized and easily visualized to ensure proper coverage while avoiding overtime or being over staffed.
  • Scheduling for the employees is user friendly. Employees can easily request and view their time off. They can also view their schedule along with their team's at any time.
  • Payroll is very streamlined. With scheduling and payroll in the same system, everything can be quickly verified for accuracy. All time sheets are kept within the system and then easily processed for payroll.

  • Customer Service is atrocious. We've had 6 Customer Success Managers in less than 3 years-hard to develop any type of rhythm in addressing and solving problems. They also utilize a ticketing system to report issues, but there is little to no communication of when tickets are actually resolved and what the resolution was-requires a ton of prodding from the client to get answers to emails.
  • Integration with third party platforms (benefits for example) is also lacking. Issues are prevalent and take excessive time to resolve.

The product is really good overall. The customer service is not the best and the benefits administration is kind of painful. However, the good outweighs the bad. We might get a different benefit admin system that can be integrated into Paycor. My controller doesn't want to switch anything for a [long] time.

Unfortunately, Paycor has a major system issue that in my opinion needs to totally be reconfigured. The benefit module is not accurate and does not work correctly. The EDI feeds do not work and took over a year to be implemented and still were not accurate

I feel like Paycor is always up and running! If they are planning downtime, they communicate it clearly. Every once in a while, I get something that says the system isn't working but it is usually back up within the hour. I typically find by the time that the employees complain about it, that it is resolved within the system.

For the most part, everything moves super fast. There are a few sections (Expense Management) that sometimes take a bit to load correctly. Or if they are interesting, it takes a minute to talk to each other! But reports are quickly downloaded and available! Even data heavy reports run fairly fast!

I feel like support will transfer you back and forth between departments and put you on hold forever. I believe it is very difficult to see the status of an open ticket. During my experience, it feels like the client has to push all communication and request updates from support regularly.

The online trainings are super helpful. They have user guides that you can read through, interactive training that will walk you through it as well as plain web based ones. I've actually never had an in-person training but all of the information you need can be found online. They also will do individual support training if you are struggling with a certain area.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

It allows the feature of flexible payment methods to complete of the payment of termination and the payment to be process on time which is recognized worldwide. The card payment process time is 3 days faster than the normal bank payment process, and you can stop easily. It integrates your payment procedures with a global cash flow solution that ensures the timely payments to regulate authorities like your employees, local authorities or to the third parties.

Paylocity was cumbersome and not very intuitive. I was constantly on the phone with them trying to figure out how to do something. I once called back 4 different times( because I didn’t believe the answer they gave me was how to do what I was asking), explained my problem the exact same way and got 4 different answers. So, I lost trust in the product and started looking for a product I could rely on.

I gave it a 10 because we only use it across one organization. However, it has allowed us to break it into multiple departments and layers of management. It is also easy for us to utilize across different locations but still under one master company. They have always provided us support when we decide to change something on an organizational level

Return on Investment
CloudPay
  • The positive impact is, a lot of manual work is automated now, which is saving a lot of time and man-hours.
  • Requests and demands can be accessed, monitored, and raised anytime from anywhere. So a lot of dependencies have been resolved.
  • Human resources and all finance is been integrated which is resulting in less work at the desk.

  • ACA - Great. It took us approximately two hours to complete, compared to the 40+ Hours it took us in previous years.
  • Timesheet maintenance- this takes more time than it did previously.
  • Reporting - Confusing and Difficult. Very little customization and has forced us to rely less on reports.
  • Performance- Supervisors are spending 20% less time on performance reviews due to the easy of answering the questions.
