Likelihood to Recommend

Namely

Our overall experience has been very positive. Our accounting department used to handle every issue related to HR, benefits, payroll, etc. But with the Namely platform, employees can input all information right into the website and access any information they need. As a supervisor who approves PTO/Vacations, the platform is super-easy to use.

OnPay

The main reason for my rating is the ease of use and support from the Customer Support team. We've had a few scenarios where I've reached out to Customer Support. One of our employees had a variance in his check between payroll cycles. After reaching out to Patrick, he was able to quickly identify that the variance was due to a change in withholdings. Our employee didn't remember making any changes, so Patrick did a bit more research to confirm what may have changed. After he completed his research, he discovered that with the way the tax forms are completed now, when he updated his profile to married, it changed that setting for him. He confirmed this information within an hour of our initial interaction and it was answered clearly and concisely.

Pros

Namely

  • Namely has helped with our COVID sick leave response. It has made a major difference both with the weekly payroll and the 941 tax filing
  • Keeping track of our multiple PTO plans. Thank goodness for Namely, I have shredded my old PTO spreadsheets.
  • Employees like the convenience of the cell phone app. As a payroll administrator, I like the Geo Tracking tool where I can see where some are when the clock is in or out.
  • The flexibility inside of the payroll system both as you are finalizing an employee profile and when you are processing payroll is a major advantage.
  • The reports I get out of Namely in Excel format work well for me.

Cons

Namely

  • Customer service has been largely disappointing and sometimes horrible.
  • The tax reporting team has had some major hiccups for us.
  • Some of the custom reporting filters could be improved by adding an in-between dates filter.
  • Some of the performance review tools are still confusing after 7 years.
  • Can I say customer service again?
Read full review

OnPay

  • Easier use for bookkeepers that have more than 1 client with on pay
  • Easier to find reports
  • The print function could be improved upon. There is no check adjustment for printing checks manually.
  • Improvement of W2's that fit forms better so that they can be mailed out if necessary.
  • Improvement in taking phone calls

      Likelihood to Renew

      Namely

      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.

      Usability

      Namely

      Namely is a user-friendly system that is continuing to improve its integration across platforms with HRIS, Benefits, Payroll, and Time. For us, a complex user with multiple clients and hundreds of hourly employees, it has been a good solution (though not without its drawbacks) and we have greatly appreciated Namely's willingness to listen to our concerns and requests for changes in the product. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Namely for any company far more simple than ours—especially small entities with most, if not all, salaried employees.

      OnPay

      OnPay is super easy to use. If I don't know something it doesn't take long to figure out just by navigating the website. If I still can't figure something out I usually "chat" with them and it's easily resolved.

      Support Rating

      Namely

      Unfortunately, in more recent years we've had a lot of difficulty with Namely as they've undergone a lot of internal changes. It took 4 returned emails saying the person no longer worked at Namely to find someone to help me (I finally called payroll) and it took a while to get connected with a direct source of help. Namely now has set up their "pod" feature of communication which works well for the most part, but is different. I felt spoiled when we first started with Namely, but now it feels very much like working with most large companies' help centers. There is a system to go through and you do have the option to click "urgent". In general the help is efficient, but it still takes a few days and it's hard to speak with someone directly. It is all done via online communications and is difficult to actually speak to someone on the phone. This works well for most cases, but I do feel frustrated more often than I'd like to with this type of communication. (2019/2020)

      I would say support is one of the best features OnPay has. You can call, chat or email. With ADP I was always on hold for a ridiculous amount of time. They also did not have chat when I was with ADP.

      Implementation Rating

      Namely

      I was not part of the implementation of Namely. It was before my time. Prior to Namely the company used UltiPro, which is also a great system. The implementation/transition supposedly went smooth, but I cannot comment from my own firsthand experience.

      Easy to implement and easy to convert any other payroll reports to the OnPay system when making the switch

      Alternatives Considered

      Namely

      Namely provided certain features that we were looking for that the other vendors did not, specifically the social feed. We do not have a company intranet so we needed a place to communicate and store resources in addition to managing HR and Benefits. Namely provided that combination plus more.

      OnPay

      Onpay was a "no-brainer" . Implementation, training, and ROI, exceeded all the other platforms we reviewed. Plus their customer support is excellent. You always know who you're working with. Really appreciated all the help we received implementing clients, and great customer service from our client rep

      Return on Investment

      Namely

      • It gets the job done, but I can't say that I love it.
      • I can't really compare the ROI to another solution. It is certainly good enough to roll up most basic HR functions, and in that respect is totally worth it.

      OnPay

      • Reduces payroll processing time
      • Ability for full electronic employee files
      • The overall cost is the best in the industry, saving us money
      • Ability for on/off-boarding ensures our files our complete
      • There are a few limitations but they work with programmers to get those features setup
