Paycor

Paycor is well suited for small to mid-sized businesses where their HR needs are standard and simple. Paycor is less appropriate for organizations that have more complex or robust HR needs: comprehensive performance management and succession planning, more flexibility for the types of employees (PT, FT, Temp), and a PTO system that can match our process. We had to rewrite some parts of our PTO process because Paycor's system could not match it, whereas our previous provider could.

Zoho People

Zoho People is a great option for storing employee information, and for tracking time. Because of the nature of my organization and my role in it I haven't used all of the features, but the program is intuitive and aesthetically pleasing, and has worked well for our organization in the functions we have used it for.

Pros

Paycor

  • The integration between time and attendance and payroll processing is very seamless and easy to use. Once time is approved and verified, it is very quick and easy to run payroll.
  • Creating import files from each pay run to the GL is very quick and easy. All the GL mapping is done in Paycor and is easy to maintain and update as needed.
  • Reporting is fairly robust; once a user becomes familiar with the various data fields, creating custom reports is not overly difficult to do.

Zoho People

  • The time-tracking feature is really helpful, and it's great that you can use that feature from the app.
  • We also use Zoho Recruit for applications, so Zoho People was a logical choice for managing HR information for our staff and members, and the two integrate really well together.
Hope Cutchins | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Paycor

  • No dedicated account manager.
  • You will wait on hold for hours on the customer service line until you have to hang up and get back to your real job.
  • I have never received a single response to any of the 5+ support tickets I have opened through their email support line.
  • Will run reports using their existing templates and still get null values.

  • We have had some trouble recently with getting new users set up. However, the support team at Zoho has been really responsive and helpful, so that's nice.

Usability

Paycor

Paycor 5.3
Based on 148 answers
Overall usability is solid and consistent for both direct users in HR and the occasional users by staff. My rating is less than a 10 due to the challenges with using the performance review portal of the system with its lack of customizable capabilities. Also, while there is a good variety of standard reports, the reporting module is often out of service and the use of the program to create your own custom reports is not user friendly

It is always pleasant to interface with the Payroll team. They are sharp and understand my issues, even though I don't always know how to articulate my questions or concerns. I have had no issues with any payroll matters and that is a very good thing.

Implementation of any new software is going to be challenging, especially if you are maintaining an existing program concurrently. When it is time for dual-processing (both old and new software) prior to going live, be prepared to be stressed. But trust the process and it will be over soon.

Alternatives Considered

Paycor

For our company size we evaluated this to be the best product for us at this time. The pricing and service provided is also a big factor. Very reasonable and we like the customer service you offer, there are always questions and trying to get solutions answered as we look at you for professional advice. That sets you apart from other businesses because we as a law firm also try to accommodate our clients too. This good business relationship is very important as we continue to grow and knowing you have our back

Return on Investment

Paycor

  • Paycor has a positive impact on management's ability to more effectively use their time on other tasks rather than sift through manual time cards managers are able to quickly assess and revise any exceptions through a daily review of all time from the previous day.
  • The employee portal provided empowers employees to manage their payroll functions which gives them the ability to control their financial reporting as well as frees up time for managers who would otherwise need to perform these functions for the employee (e.g., print previous paychecks, update personal information, distribute W-2)
  • The pay period reporting functions provide stability in the pay process as managers are able to readily ascertain all exceptions and errors in payroll, which in turn saves time and money that may be spent on correcting errors through manual payroll checks required after discovering issues after payroll has run. Additionally, the reporting functions provides detailed analysis of labor costing which provided insight on how to maintain and/or reduce payroll costs.

Zoho People

  • For us, the time/attendance tracking function of Zoho People has done a lot to increase accountability for scheduling and attendance. Since we are a volunteer staff, scheduling can be difficult, and this has made it so much easier to quantify and track everyone's weekly time commitments.
