Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Namely is used in a variety of ways. There is a newsfeed that we see on our home page that shows everyone's birthday and anniversary. Plus, if we ever want to give a shout out we can do that there too. In addition to that, we request our time off, view benefits and paystubs.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Namely is used across our entire organization for Payroll, HRIS, Performance Management. We moved to Namely because we wanted to incorporate an online performance management system tied to our payroll and to increase the efficiency of our onboarding.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use it as our HRIS, Benefits Broker, Performance Management tool and Payroll software. It is used across the entire org. The HR team are admins and every employee is a user. We make use of the social feed for recognition as well. It keeps all of our people initiatives in 1 place.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

The whole organization uses namely. It is our main HR organizing tool. We use it for things such as tracking pay-stubs, requestion vacation days/logging time away from the office and tracking our available days. It is also used for writing out semi-annual performance reviews, and for setting up information related to our insurance benefits.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

This is the second company I have used Namely at. The HR teams always like it and the Finance side can't stand it. There have been some UI improvements over the 3 years I have used it, but the integration is still fragmented and clunky. Information still doesn't cleanly pass from the HRIS side over to the Payroll side. As others have mentioned, the support is absolutely horrendous. At my current company, there is the same theme of being cycled through multiple account managers and being stuck with the service@namely.com black hole to try to resolve any issues.

Multiple issues have come up and deadlines have been missed even though we have followed up and been assured several times that things were "all set" or "already taken care of". Then when you question them after they have missed something, they offer to fix it as long as you pay them to do it! Biggest scam on earth.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Namely is not what it seems; they will sell you on how well everything works and it does not work well at all. We have been through 5 account reps in 1.5 years and they are useless. Everything has to go through service@namely.com and it can take weeks to get answers. Namely has actually made the job harder, not easier, and the system is not user-friendly at all. If you ask for someone to help and do it for you they will only send you a screenshot and tell you to do it yourself. Trust me, the system is terrible and the service is not there. Benefits can never get the deductions right. It's a constant battle with them.

Namely is used across my entire organization to process payroll, store employee records, manage benefits, and track performance. It is intended to assist with HR management, but its functionality is questionable at best.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Namely is being used across our company for core HRIS, payroll, time & attendance, and benefits administration. Prior to using Namely, we used multiple non-connected HRIS systems. There was a lot of redundancy, and a lot of room for error.

Most recently, we used Paycom, which took on core HRIS, time & attendance, and payroll. We found ourselves needing something that was far more user-friendly, for admins and employees alike. We also had lots of processing issues.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We are currently using Namely as our HRIS, Payroll, Workforce Management, Performance Management, Time and Attendance and Benefits Administration for the whole organization in the USA. We are trying to minimize paper clutter and store information digitally which is one of the reasons why we chose Namely. On-boarding process is much more automated as you can upload all required documents into a template and have new employees complete them using e-signature. Performance Management feature makes it very easy to keep track of everyone’s progress and manage from the administrative side. Benefits Open Enrollment is now automated and employees will be accountable for making changes or selecting new coverage.

Namely is being used to manage Human Resources at the company I'm working for. So it is used by the whole organization all around the world. It works very well by only focusing on HR to make everything is easier and more convenient. It is better than the previous solution the company used, Oracle ERP.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Namely is being used for our entire organization. We have 5 office locations and a few remote employees. Namely provides an inclusive platform for all employee data and information. This creates structure, improved communication, and transparency. Our team members can see who else works in our company, what teams they're on, and company goals. Employees have access to their personal paystubs, timesheets, time off, performance reviews, signed documents, and benefits. There is a news feed to post updates, employee appreciation, and welcome new employees.

We have been using Namely for almost two full years and it is a great tool for all the users at our company. They have a great support team and make updates often to increase the functionality and effectiveness. Have really enjoyed moving to this platform from our prior. We are full payroll, HR, and benefits with them and I couldn't be happier.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

They took on our benefits brokerage services in the middle of a renewal season when we were struggling with an unreliable broker we've had for years. They came in and negotiated down rates for us, set up new plans, working with our insurance carriers and got us everything ready in time for open enrollment. Unbelievable effort - Namely hires outstanding talent and their benefits team works wonders!

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

We use Namely to complete all payroll, benefits administration, and workforce management analysis. It is primarily managed by the HR Team, but we have fully implemented it across the organization for employee and manager self-service. We have been able to increase our transparency via the communication tools and employees now have access to their own data.

Namely was implemented across our organization as a platform for our one true source of employee data, for payroll and benefits, and for performance management. Their open API capability has allowed us to integrate/pull data into other applications and systems within our organization's information technology ecosystem.

Use Cases and Deployment Scope

Our employees and 1099 contractors use Namely's HRIS platform. They can update their personal information such as address, see their compensation history and enroll in benefits. Managers and the Finance / Hr team members use Namely to run reports on the information we store in HRIS. I use the Payroll platform to run pay for US employees and 1099 contractors. Our HR Manager utilizes the HRIS, payroll and Benefits platforms. We are able to give our mangers the ability to run reports on on their direct reports which reduces the need for the finance/HR team to produce reports on request. The HRIS platform is user friendly and easy for our employees to navigate.

Namely is being used by HR only at this time. I am hoping to have it used company-wide by the end of 2018. For HR its main use is workflows which have helped us stay on track for department changes and raises. Being a government contractor, employee's skills are interchangeable on projects and transactions move quickly and often. This helps us stay sane!
