I have used a number of other HRIS tools, and this is by far the easiest! The integrations and customization are very easy to understand, and the system is wonderful in storing the deleted task lists in case of internal operations changes. We have successfully integrated our employee gift system "Gifted," JumpCloud, Slack, and more! This has reduced the number of manual tasks our teams have to do to update changes in employment.

Overall good product.. just takes a lot of clicks to get something done... 3 approvals for recruiting and sending a job offer. If we approve, another level approves, and yet it doesn't send until we go back again to click again to send the job offer.

Pros

Hibob

  • Shout-out/Kudos/Poll on the home page is a real engagement tool if used regularly.
  • Performance evaluation module - expensive, but so flexible, customizable and fits every possible need.
  • Onboarding and offboarding workflows are upgraded and save lots of unnecessary administrative work.
  • They have wonderful support and customer care!

Paylocity

  • Integration between modules, so information entered in one place imports into the other modules. The employee & employer don't have to enter duplicate information.
  • Company Administrators can override approvals where needed - if a supervisor can't get to something, we're not stuck!
  • Tech-first support team constantly welcomes suggestions of things that can be built out on the back end to enhance system capabilities.

Cons

Hibob

  • Tasks - For something like onboarding, I wish there was a way to set up the tasks so that the person setting up the employee profile would be the only person to get the assigned tasks. It's hard to describe but for example, if there are multiple on-boarders on the team, is there a way to set up the tasks so that technically every on-boarder would be assigned to the task, but the person setting up the profile is the one that triggers the task for themselves.
  • Reports - I find pulling reports a bit complicated, especially if I am asked to pull data that involves info being located in different areas of an employee profile. For example, for a couple of months, I thought it was impossible to pull a variable pay report along with the base salary (in one report rather than pull two separate reports) only to find out that you can do that via the Total Compensation report. Also when I have to pull data for headcount since a certain day, I wish you can make the settings so that data can appear after a certain day, rather than sorting it manually via Excel/Google sheets.
  • Timesheet - I love the functionality of the timesheet that hibob provided, but I also wish they included an option where people can set up predicted work schedules for future dates. Currently, the timesheets are ideals for scenarios where employees time in and out of work.

Paylocity

  • Reporting is okay. It gets you all the information you need, but it's sometimes difficult to navigate their report writing to get exactly what you need and only that.
  • Communication of changes could be improved. Sometimes updates are made but aren't communicated to the company admins.

    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.

    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.

    Always answering immediately, treating each client according to his needs. Offer flexible, "tailor made" solutions, addressing every possible need. Listening to the customer and developing new features based on customer feedback.

    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

    Hibob

    Miles better than Youmanage - pretty much incomparable, Bob is that much further ahead. I was using Workday in a much bigger organisation and it worked fantastically there. I don't know if HiBob would have been as effective with a workforce of more than 3,000. However, on the flip side, I don't believe that Workday would have been as successful as HiBob has been with our current workforce size. Overall, HiBob is a great system with some amazing features. I think it will be exciting to see what the product looks like in 5 years as it has real potential to grow and get better.

    I would say Paylocity is probably the second of the four platforms referenced. ADP would still be my favorite because I felt the most comfortable on that platform. I felt like information was easier to get to (fewer mouse clicks) and that it was slightly more efficient. However, Paylocity is significantly better than Insperity Time star. It's also slightly better than Paycom, but at a much better price.

    Return on Investment

    Hibob

    • It's a great reminder for people's birthdays which is nice as people will plan to get a cake/present sent to the person whose birthday it is, so it's good from a company culture perspective which is something we are very keen on
    • It has had a positive impact on our ROI
    • The cost benefit analysis of Hibob has shown that the benefits have outweighed the costs
    Read full review

    Paylocity

    • Reduce errors in processing our payroll due to the in-depth reports we are ale able to run to audit.
    • Improved employee communication throughout the company with the community platform.
    • The compensation tool allows for our managers to have more input on the employee's rate increases versus them manually being keyed by our payroll staff.
