Paylocity

Paylocity is a great stepping stone from a more manual payroll and tax process. Once implemented and administration is trained, the process is more efficient and probably cut four hours off of my payroll processing time. The Performance module automated our review process as well. Now, everyone can easily look up their past reviews right in their Paylocity account. If employees need something, they can usually just find it right in their account, opposed to contacting HR and and HR finding it for them. Paylocity does have a slower response time for certain things and when I ask that the problem be escalated, I never know who it is going to and status updates are few and far between. For example, I needed to report a cash bonus for a few employees. One person told me to do it one way, which was incorrect, and then the other person had to back that out and do it another way. This took over a month to unravel and in the end I had to manually adjust the GL.

I think it's great for small companies to manage their basic HR functions if they do not have a dedicated department. I'm unsure of the capabilities it holds for a large company with multiple teams to organize and how the calendaring functions across departments. But, for our team of roughly 20 folks it is simple and straightforward.

Pros

Paylocity

  • It has a very cool and easy to use recognition function called impressions. Instead of a simple instant message or email saying thank you, you can offer an impression saying thanks that can be categorized and made public the rest of the company when they access Paylocity. It's just a cool function that spreads thanks and engagement across the organization with little cost and effort.
  • The self service portal for employees is easy to use as well. If you need to access vacation accrual and balances, PTO requests, pay check stubs, pay information, need to change your address or name, etc. it's very easy to find and navigate. You don't need to dig or click everywhere.
  • The journal entry function is useful too for 1:1 meetings or check in meetings for manages and their direct reports. It gives an easy module to record notes, discuss topics, attach documents, or make notes of items that need to be followed up on. Not everyone here uses it, but it does help organize meetings and keep them on track.

Cons

Paylocity

  • The customer service is a joke. Our account manager is slow to respond and often gives wrong or incomplete answers.
  • The tax department is incredibly slow and disorganized, which has resulted in late penalties and errors on our filings.
  • You cannot contact any department without going through your account manager, which if you have a bad one like we do, means you often get roadblocked in getting your issues resolved.
  • There is no sense of urgency or accountability in customer service.
  • You are expected to largely self-serve. Often when you reach out for help, the customer care rep doesn't know any more about the system than you do.

  • I would like even more capabilities, but I think that has to do with how we are using the site.
  • I would like to receive email notifications once a week with a summary of activity in TribeHR, including time-off scheduled by my team and any new documents or information that has been added.
  • I'd like reminders if I am going to go over my time off that is allotted to carry over into the new year and other pertinent vacation, floating holiday, sick time notifications.

The transition from my old provider to Paylocity was virtually painless. I always felt well supported by my account rep. I would use Paylocity again, but I'm not in a position to change providers at my current company right now.

Paylocity provides a friendly user experience with large icons on the web interface to allow ease of use. There has hardly ever been an outage on the website; the uptime is superb! Our employees provide positive feedback on their experience with using Paylocity as their time, benefits, and payroll provider.

Support for basic questions is great. If I run into something while doing a payroll, first level support is quick and always has the answer.Anything beyond that is non existent. We have not been able to speak with our dedicated account rep for months. We leave messages or are promised that he will call us right back, but he never does. We have some serious tax issues right now and I cannot even get to a supervisor or tax professional and this is truly something beyond first level support capabilities.During our initial setup we provided them with spreadsheets so they could import our employee info. They did that and everything was reviewed and yet later we found employees with info that had just been changed (like social security numbers) and some employees had to amend income tax returns. We have had tax deposits filed late and received penalties. They got them waived but we had to use our "one time exemption" for something they caused.

Alternatives Considered

Paylocity

ADP software is old, outdated and extremely problematic (glitches, crashes, freezes). The biggest issue we had with ADP was the wasted time trying to fix these issues (3-4 a week). We would spend hours on phone, writing emails, following up for things that should just WORK. Paylocity doesn't not have these issues so we can use the software for what its for and move on with more important tasks. This is a huge value to process since our turnover is high in out industry.

We evaluated Greenhouse but went with net suite because we were already using some of the other NetSuite. Greenhouse seemed a bit easier to use. The others were a bit too small, didn't have the stretch to scale.

Return on Investment

Paylocity

  • The robust reporting has allowed us to analyze our workforce in a way prior systems could not. We used the data to update our pay structures and reduce turnover.
  • The performance management system has dramatically improved our processes over decentralized paper methods. This improvement leads to higher engagement and therefore a more productive workforce.
  • The ability to link with business partners, such as our CPA, allows them to access they information they need to help advise us more efficiently.
Jason Magill | TrustRadius Reviewer

TribeHR (discontinued)

  • As I stated it has alleviated numerous back and forth emails with our CFO (who is only available PT) and CEO (who is often too busy to spend time on HR functions) - this has allowed for easy answers to basic HR questions.
  • It has allowed us to track all employee time-off in one place, saving us time from checking each individual Outlook calendar for scheduling purposes.
  • It has allowed us to direct all employees to one place for core HR documents and information, ensuring that folks are always getting the same answers to their inquiries.
