MYOB

I am very likely to recommend MYOB Payglobal I would rate this as a 9. Having MYOB Payglobal has meant that our organization can expend and grow without having to consider if our systems will be able to handle increased numbers of employees, and companies. Also the WAP system allows us to change the structure if there is a structural change within the organization.

Paychex Flex is great for employers, both large and small, to help process their payroll. It automatically generates reports, allows employees to be paid via direct deposit and access their stubs and W2s electronically. It has worked well for us both on the employer and employee end. I cannot think of an instance where it wouldn't be appropriate. It is a perfect all-in-one payroll processing service, with team support built in.

Cons

MYOB

  • There are multiple ways of setting employees up which don't always result in the information flowing through to all sections.
  • It is a large system and requires those using it to fully understand some of the back end
Read full review

Paychex, Inc.

  • It's difficult to update user emails and user phone numbers after they have been set
  • The performance management system could use some quality of life improvements like viewing previous reviews while completing a new review or allowing a manager to view the self-review of an employee while completing the manager review.
  • For the issues and incidents section, it would be great if system admins could submit a new case like a workplace injury or near-miss without having to tag an employee in the case. Sometimes we just want to add the information into Flex for recordkeeping purposes and for generating 300A forms at the end of the year.

    overall we have had good experience. when problems occur paychex is quick to resolve the problems; however when encountering recurring problems and issues it doesn't matter how quickly they are resolved they should re-occur. Paychex will price match competitor's quotes.

    Paychex Flex has possibly added electronic onboarding since we stopped using the system. This option would bring my rating up to a 8 or 9 for Paychex Flex. The ability to have employees enter their info, read and ackowledge company policies versus hand writing paper applications that are often times not legible, has been more effecient for us with the hiring process

    Unless there is lag time within the internet, the Paychex Flex website loads exceptional fast, pages load quickly and reports that I need to print or download load quickly. If I need to create a specialized report, once I complete it I receive an e-mail telling me my report is ready to be downloaded. Changing between web pages is fast as well.

    Paychex Flex has been having longer than normal wait times, but I do think that it is a covid-related/staffing issue as it's only been happening in the past 2 months (November, December, January 2022). Once I do have a representative on the line, they are helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. The support level is fairly basic at the representative level. For anything more complex, an HR specialist would need to be brought in.

    Just make sure you have your in-house data collected and organized before you start. It would be helpful to put together a questionnaire to solicit all of the needed information.

    Alternatives Considered

    MYOB

    MYOB was well supported in New Zealand and came highly recommended by multiple sources. It was a system that had more modules than just Payroll and HR which meant that going forward we could add modules without having to look at changing systems. The implementation of these module could be staggered as the business need arose.

    Paychex Flex is hands-down an easier way to manage payroll. I found QuickBooks Online to be somewhat confusing about when and where to file what form, and it was definitely more tedious than the easy flow of using Paychex Flex.

    Employees can log in at home and get up to date information on their FSA balance and any medical bill reimbursements they may have uploaded. At renewal time they have the ability to make changes to their FSA or for new employees star the enrollment.

    • It is easy to use

    • Using Paychex Flex has been a great timesaver for me - I can print out timesheets that help keep me focused on all the employee's time and accurate reporting.
    • The payroll journals are very easy to read and make cash management a very simple process.
    • Employees love that they can go online and see their paychecks and payroll information, thereby leaving me to do more important tasks.
