Heartland Payroll

Because we're a small business, I can't tell if Heartland Payroll is appropriate for a larger operation. For a small business, it's like having your own HR department. You can place an ad, accept resumes, and hire directly through their Heartland Hires platform. This is perfect for a small company like ours. For a larger company, it may not be robust enough.

Hubstaff

Hubstaff
is a great tool for businesses and I would recommend it to all businesses that
are exclusively managing remote workers. Hubstaff is one of the best choices
for such businesses as it is equipped with all pivotal features that will help
you in giving exact direction to your business. Moreover, it offers spot-on
technical support as well which is a great thing. It is one of the best
suitable tools for every company regardless of its size and equally proves helpful
for freelancers as well.

Pros

Heartland Payroll

  • The account rep is very responsive and usually gets back to my emails quickly.
  • The online system is really easy to use.
  • They offer a separate page for employees to log in for pay stubs and another log in for admin.

Hubstaff

  • It has all the features that need to have while managing the project like screen capturing, sending invoices, create and view reports, pay and quick insights.
  • It also gives me the reports of my team effectiveness.
  • It tracks all the project progress along with team effectiveness and productivity at the workplace, gives me all the insights into team performance, and also helps me to track team productivity easily.
  • Another great feature that Hubstaff has which is its integration module.

Cons

Heartland Payroll

  • The payroll online platform is not the best

Hubstaff

  • While setting up automatic payroll capabilities I have to pass through difficult steps.
  • If I talk about its customer support it is very much inspiring and effective too.
  • Difficulty in integration is a serious issue I think that needs to be noticed. Sometimes dragging and dropping features is found to be a bit difficult.
  • There should be an option for live chatting.

I never have trouble reaching customer support. They always are able to assist with fixing any problems that arise. There honestly haven't been many issues at all. Only ones I've created :)

Hubstaff has always responded to support requests in a timely manner and has kept me in the loop of changes.When contacting them about future changes/features they've always been upfront on whether that is a change they are looking to make and when that change may occur. Finally, if the person I have communicated with was unable to resolve, they always escalated to the next best person who can answer/resolve.

Alternatives Considered

Heartland Payroll

I've considered moving payroll over to QuickBooks Online so that everything is in one place, but it would probably take too much work considering that our current system works really well. I think QuickBooks would confuse me, honestly. There are other systems that offer different user interfaces that are neat looking, but I haven't done too much research because Heartland Payroll offered me a really good deal for processing since we are a small company.

Wrike has a task based system that you can clock time against, but it just wasn't flexible enough for the type of work we do, particularly the one offs. HubStaff is also really simple to use, so anyone can get started with it without any training or previous knowledge required. It doesn't take up a lot of space and I can manage it from the top of my screen in addition to the app itself. It also has a phone app which is great if some employees occasionally travel

Hubstaff

  • Hubstaff has so many features that can be explored in different ways.
  • Here with Hubstaff if any employee tracks their time wrongly then it can always be amended in a way it suits your project needs quite easily.
  • Another great advantage is that Hubstaff tracks the overall progress of the entire project in a very detailed manner and provides insights for all the remaining work.
