Likelihood to Recommend

Namely

Namely is an amazing platform. My main recommendation for new and future users would be to utilize all that it has to offer! Put in the time to customize it and make it your own and you will not be sorry. Even if you only want to use if for basic functionality, it is still worth it. The ease and cleanliness of the platform saves me a lot of time when I make updates, run payroll and explain things to employees.

Pros

Namely

  • I love being able to add profile fields to create custom reports. This is a very powerful function that allows me to produce top notch reports for our board of directors.
  • Workflows allowed us to do away with several paper processes and turn them into a streamlined automated process. (i.e. address updates, etc...)
  • Employees like being able to access their profile and pay stubs from home. Employees may also request time off from home.
  • The electronic on-boarding makes life easy.

Cons

Namely

  • Namely could add a function for alerts when licenses or certificates are about to expire.
  • I would like to see a partnership with an online learning management system.
  • I would like to see a file system similar to Microsoft's OneDrive.
  • A place for online collaboration like SharePoint would be great.
  • Streamline the Time Off to be a two way conversation between payroll and HR

Administrators and employees love Namely. It is very easy to use and streamlined. Employees stay engaged with news feed updates and enjoy all the self service options. The time cards are very easy to access and clocking in and out for non-exempt employees is a breeze. Namely is part of our family.

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works

They have always (3 years worth) been extremely responsive and will escalate it on their own if they don't have an answer
