  • Crelate allows you to quickly import candidates to your database from LinkedIn. Very good resource that is quick and user friendly!
  • Crelate allows an unlimited number of job positings
  • Easy to prioritize your searches
  • Good resource to tracking placements and billing
Michael DiGregorio | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

In my own experience, the specific data that you see in the software is a great aid in managing your workforce and evaluating performance. It is straightforward to understand how to use it; I'm sure that after 2 to 3 weeks, most people won't have any trouble using it, but I don't want to sound biased since my knowledge only takes me so far into some of it the software capabilities. The user interface can be dull at times, but it's a minor, aesthetic issue, in my opinion.

Pros

Crelate

  • Crelate has a very useful SMS system where you can engage with candidates via text and receive quick responses
  • Crelate has generally useful widgets such as bookmarks, engagement activities, and ad response tracking
James Rodriguez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • Having all employee information in one place is one of the best things about Paycor.
  • When we have new documentation, we can easily have all employees sign to confirm they read and accept the changes made with a few simple uploads and clicks.
  • It has made our employee onboarding experience much more streamlined and efficient.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Crelate

  • Interface isn't great - there's a lot of clicking around required that I wish was streamlined
  • This isn't a self-explanatory platform - you have to dig around a while before you figure out how to use some features, like the filtering of contacts, for example. There's a place that you'd think you filter, but that actually changes the contacts list instead.
  • It often crashes and you have to sign out and sign back in for it to work again.
Rachel Segal-Sklar | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • Increase the frequency with which our representative contacts us. Paycor moves at such a fast pace that our representative is always changing
  • After the first year, I think you should have a team meeting to go over how things are set up and make any necessary changes

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.

The overall interface is similar to others, but the fact that half of the features are turned "off" and you have to know WHERE to go in the system to manually turn features "on" seems annoying (like just make all of the features that you sold me on available to me at the outset... why should I individually one-by-one have to identify features and then try to figure out where they might be and how I might turn them on?!?! Also, [I believe] their notification system is a joke. If a payroll fails to process, Paycor will NOT notify anyone in the company. You'll find out when the checks don't arrive (whereas every other payroll provider would alert you if any pay run failed to process by the anticipated date/time).

Usually the Crelate support is very responsive and quick to fix any problems that arise. I've personally seen emails of the threads where Crelate support was quick to resolve problems and act courteously while doing so. While I have never called their line, it seems that their phone support is also well experienced.

I'd give a zero if that were an option. I currently have multiple requests for support that have not been answered in over a week. I have called their support phone line and usually hung up after waiting for 45 minutes for someone to answer. It is unlikely to get a quick response, EVER, even to urgent problems that effect taxes and benefit submission.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Crelate

  • Easier to use, modern, supports drag and drop. Easy to set up and use. Fewer keystrokes
  • better support than zoho, not as good (but getting there) as PCR
  • Crelate is a smaller company, nimble and has ear of the customer
  • LIke ability to click and dial!

Paycor

When I started this business 4 years ago, I immediately defaulted to Paychex since I used them for over 20 years at my last company. It took a lot of effort to even get them to return my calls and emails. Then, when they reluctantly took my business on, they assigned me to a rep in Indianapolis - even though I'm in Nashville, Tennessee! That office wouldn't return my calls or emails for up to 2 weeks at a time. So I did some online research and discovered Paycor, and I'm very glad that I did. I have been very satisfied with the customer service I've received, and I've been very impressed with the respect and patience they have shown to me, even though I'm a very small business.

Return on Investment

Crelate

  • Crelate has allowed me to customize my recruiting process for business development. This will be a great ROI moving forward.
  • Crelate links all candidates to the company that they work for. This is extremely important to quickly identify profiles in the database with the companies that they work for. Sounds simple but very important!
  • Quickly interfaces with LinkedIn to important candidates. This makes importing candidates quick and easy!
Michael DiGregorio | TrustRadius Reviewer

Paycor

  • My payroll used to take three days to complete. Now it takes only a few minutes.
  • My employees have more information at their fingertips. They can see their hours, they can reference HR materials and they can get check stubs.
  • All I-9s are electronic, and I'm sure to have one for every person.
