CrossKowledge offers a superb library of learning content and a serviceable learning management system to go with it. If you’re looking for robust reporting or want to minimise the time you spend managing learning administration, you should look elsewhere.

Paylocity
Fully integrated suite of HR solutions, including payroll, benefits administration, time and attendance, and talent management. This integration is beneficial for us as we are looking to streamline our HR processes and reduce the need for multiple systems. Some users find its interface less intuitive compared to other HR software. Simplifying the user interface and making it more user-friendly could enhance the overall user experience

Pros
Wiley
  • CrossKnowledge provides learning content across a wide array of subjects, and this content is delivered using various delivery methods (interactive e-learning, videos, reading material, activity journals, etc.)
  • CrossKnowledge’s learning suite makes it easy to set up and roll out a highly customised learning management system.
  • CrossKnowledge offers a mobile app that makes it easy to access both the learning management system as well as their learning content on the go.

  • Customer Service is always helpful with little wait time.
  • Always improving; for example, the recent change to processing payroll. So much easier.
  • Onboarding makes it simple and the fact that the company can personalize the messaging to new hires allows us to make it more personalized.
  • Having an assigned account manager regardless of company size is definitely a plus.

Cons
Wiley
  • As a learning management system, CrossKnowledge’s backend is missing several key features for learning administrators
  • It is immensely difficult to set up learning events and managing invitations to learners
  • Reporting is extremely limited: you can only see the reports that CrossKnowledge seems necessary; you have very limited customisation options, and many of the basic reporting functions are simply impossible

  • The I-9 task is very bulky and clunky. There should be pre-filled areas such as name and company information that is defaulted so you don't have to fill it in every time. And there is always boxes popping up everywhere that makes it hard to fill the form out.
  • I am not sure why but sometimes I will receive notifications to my personal log-in that I have to go and look at, instead of using my administrator log-in. Having it streamlined with one log-in would be better.
  • Being able to delete a profile for an employee should be easier. For example, ADP lets you delete an employee profile as long as a payroll for that employee has not been run. Here, even the help desk doesn't know why you can't delete an employee profile sometimes, their answer, "if the box is able to be checked, then you can delete them." But what makes the box able or not able to be checked? No one seems to know.
  • I wish the reports feature was easier to use. I have been in HR for over 10 years and used many different systems for HR and I can hands down say that this reporting feature is THE HARDEST SYSTEM TO USE. I have been here for a year and I still don't know how to use it. I finally gave up and made my own.
  • The main page on HR and Payroll should have the ability to be sorted by date of hire and more abilities like that. The sorting of employees is fixed to only the data shown and some of that data is not useful from a sorting perspective. It should be more customizable. And if it is, it should be easier to figure out.

CrossKnowledge’s learning content makes it a no-brainer. Besides, while their LMS isn’t as powerful or robust as we’d have liked, it’s still serviceable and most of our learners aren’t directly affected by it.

We have had many issues with the way our platform was set up at implementation that still continue to plague us. In addition, our benefits, in particular our FSA, have been mis-managed causing a balance due from an employee (and also a lot of work for our accounting and HR team, as well as stress for the employee). Our service rep continues to answer incorrectly on many fronts (original response is usually check out this paylocity article, vs. helping) and recently our COBRA management was mishandled (not adding Dental to a person on Cobra who had requested it). So- all in all...we are not particularly happy w/ Paylocity

Overall, in my experience, Paylocity has been easy to use for both staff and administrators. First, the staff has an application and inputting Paid Time Off is easy to do. I then get an alert on my app and I am able to approve it on the spot from my app that gives me access as an employee and an administrator without having to use multiple apps or logins. As an administrator I think the portal is easy to use, Paylocity did a great job showing me tools and rolling out training classes before rollout.

Paylocity support is always available and I never have to wait endlessly on hold. If our dedicated account manage is not available, there is an entire team assigned to our account. Every one of them is knowledgeable about our organization and Paylocity's process.

Everyone wants immediate assistance. Awaiting a response from an email only to ask 2-3 more questions is time consuming. Within the first six months of setup, I would rather respond back to the instructors who provided me the training in each category of my contract.

I didn't have in-person training, but I'm sure it was just as great as any other training/assistance Paylocity provides. Paylocity customer service is always available. You never have to be on hold and their answers are always accurate and timely. Documents in the help section are helpful as well. My in-person training was conducted y one of our employees who was involved in the initial set-up and training of all employees. She was excellent.

The training was live online, but was with a group of other companies. We did not receive any personalized training with our team. Whenever we would ask for training, we would be sent a peak article link or a video. It felt like the reps we dealt with didn't know the answer to the questions.

I had gone through an implementation process of another HR platform (Paycom) in my previous job and was traumatized, it was painful. I was surprised how easy and fast it was with Paylocity, the team was very helpful and set us up for success

Moodle is a far more powerful and flexible learning management system for learning administrators. Where CrossKnowledge has the edge is in its fabulous learning content library.

Paylocity just works better and was a better fit. Paylocity is more streamlined and although the reporting needs work, it also has better reporting. Paycor was very limited and very tedious. You have to click nineteen different sections to get to where you need to be. With Paylocity, 4 or less clicks and you're there!

  • It’s extremely difficult to evaluate ROI of a tool like CrossKnowledge, but it’s only been a little over a year since we rolled it out across the organisation and we’ve already made it part of our performance management system

  • We love the time of request process, although editing a request should be easier than deleting it.
  • The expense report side has helped with our paperless process and tracking mileage.
  • On-boarding has helped with making sure we comply with our new hire checklist process.
