Namely

Namely is especially well-suited for small to mid-sized companies that are looking to shift core HRIS functions under a single platform. Everything works as smoothly as advertised- payroll, benefits, time and attendance, workflows, onboarding. Especially if the employee population is comfortable with social media sites; Namely's landing page functions like an internal Facebook feed.Namely might not be well-suited for companies that have a significant employee population outside of the US . We've had some issues integrating our international employees into the core HRIS and benefits modules.

PerformancePro

Useful in a wide range of performance management-based situations. Allows options like supervisor and peer feedback, as well as messaging and addition of notes to profiles and appraisals. Allows for uploading of external documents as well as creation PerformancePro-specific documents. We have used the system for both bi-annual and annual appraisals, and both cycles worked well.If your organization keeps performance-based records in another system or file structure, you might not utilize many of the options PerformancePro has, which could lead to it feeling underutilized.

Pros

Namely

  • Time off management - simple and efficient way to submit/approve and keep track of the remaining days. It covers all types of legal time off.
  • Goals setting - Namely has a mature enough framework that you can configure based on the company's requirements.
  • Organization chart - a nice visual display of the company hierarchy structure.
Cristian Bodnarasec | TrustRadius Reviewer

PerformancePro

  • Customization - allows employers to edit language throughout the review process to reflect company terminology.
  • Automation - automatic emails and reminders for every step of the appraisal process. Saves time by reducing human follow-up at various points.
Shawn Parker | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Namely

  • Namely Payroll can be confusing as it doesn't link directly with HRIS time off. It is another platform and there is a lot of duplicating information, increasing potential for errors. There is a lot of manual entering and not great ways to input data for multiple employees at once.
  • The time sheets are not as simple as we'd like. We have a lot of employee errors with these on a regular base. You need to save on each page that you make updates on and the search features for approvers aren't as user friendly as we'd like. (This is separate from the time feature which is an additional expense, we don't use this.)
  • The time off doesn't link directly with payroll and employees have to enter time off twice. This could be user error on our end, but we've been told a few different answers from Namely help as they've made some changes recently. (2020)
  • Namely is constantly updating features but it feels sporadic and is a lot of time and energy to learn how things have changed.
  • Performance reviews are a bit tricky to learn how to use because you have to learn the language that Namely uses. They don't seem very obvious to use. I think their capability is good, but it takes some learning to set them up correctly. Our managers have had some difficulty with them.
  • In general, it feels a bit difficult to make edits and changes simply and efficiently.

PerformancePro

  • Interface - user interface could be updated to a more modern feel. Home screen (with widgets) feels somewhat cramped and widget displays could be more fully optimized.
  • Admin functions - Robust options, but the display of company edit pages is somewhat busy, and functions are sometimes buried under multiple pages of access.

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

Bryan at Namely Time is awesome to work with. I knew when I called him, most of the time, he knew the answer but if he didn't, he would figure it out and call me right back. ACA support people just lack the knowledge. Star at Namely Benefits is also great to work with.

In both chat and phone support, representatives have always been helpful and ready to offer assistance with any question or concern. Over the course of five years, there have been a few occasions when follow-up was assured but did not happen (or did not happen in a timely manner.) But much more frequently, support has been quick to follow-up and provide information as promised.

Alternatives Considered

Namely

We wanted a cutting edge product that our employees would love. We saw that in Namely. They are fully in the cloud so it can be accessed anywhere. They also have a beautiful interface that makes life so much easier. They also have a feature that an admin users can "view as" which helps me trouble shoot for employees if they have questions so that I do not have to ask them to send screen shots or run to their desk. The customer support from Namely is also awesome. I have a great relationship with my account manager and she is always there to help me. Namely is always creating new things for their platform. I have no doubt that they will continue evolving which makes me excited for the future with this platform.

Return on Investment

Namely

  • We were able to standardize processes much more easily with Namely. Without Namely it would be difficult to get 10 locations to follow the same procedure. But with Namely, we're able to set up the workflow and the manager just follows along on his computer.
  • Payroll mistakes are virtually nonexistent with Namely.

PerformancePro

  • Saves time by integrating multiple performance development aspects into one system.
  • Easy to customize to fully align with company strategies, resulting in a clear and consistent message when providing feedback and appraisals.
