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.

Oracle

Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is great for tracking most HR related information. The customization for the company is great, as well as the ability to integrate with a wide variety of complimentary software. For example, ours is integrated with our ATS (Taleo) for recruiting, Kronos for timekeeping, and Vemo for workforce insight reports. Given it's overall ability, it is probably overkill for smaller companies that may want a more focused HRIS that can handle everything without the need to integrate with additional software.

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.

Oracle

  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM is one of the best product and has helped implement the complex Business functionalities in the Higher Education business in a very streamlined process.
  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM helped in moving from 34 different legacy system to one centralized system which helps immensely in maintaining the data and reporting purpose.
  • Oracle PeopleSoft HCM also helps immensely in data analytics and trend analysis which helps immensely in preparing for the resourcing and planning for the peak season in advance and be better prepared to handle the quarterly on annual activities.

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?

Oracle

  • We have issues with students using Time & Labor for multiple jobs, where time is incorrectly calculated, including negative balances where none exist.
  • The application is complex and some areas, especially Time & Labor, are very difficult to troubleshoot. The overall level of complexity has increased over the years.
  • We also use Campus Solutions and had to split apart HCM and CS, significantly increasing our maintenance overhead and creating inter-system issues that aren't always resolvable.
  • Campus Solutions has developed a solution for managing preferred names and gender identity that is missing/ incompatible with the HCM product.

    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.

    PeopleSoft HCM has provided a very flexible platform for our HR needs. The ability to add customizations to handle some of our unique business processes have been critical in the longevity of our PS HCM use. We've been able to handle a wide variety of business processes for multiple subsidiaries due to the ability to customize when needed.

    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.

    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)

    Oracle

    Overall support has been positive and Oracle has gladly sent out representatives to meet with our teams in person. Despite sometimes sow and inadequate fixes, their willingness to try and meet face to face helps give them a better name in our organization. Sometimes their people do not understand unique needs of the industry, and it can be a challenge to explain that one size does not fit all. Finding the appropriate IT support for our unique requests has been hit and miss.

    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.

    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.

    Oracle

    Great features that are aesthetically amazing and provide trendy reporting features to gain insights, but lacks a fully developed product. They constantly deliver new features and tools and will be fully rounded in a few years from now, but as of now, they do not have all the features that PeopleSoft provides.

    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.

    • PeopleSoft helps us when we have re-orgs or acquisitions. Helps to house and organize data.
    • Very positive impact given that we have over 13,000 employees and we need a robust system like PeopleSoft to organize our employees and multiple locations and unions, etc...
