  • Increased efficiency in managing paper and personnel files has had positive impact.
  • Minimized manual errors with benefit interface with carriers has saved time and money in processing.
  • Loss of job history with the upgrade last year has had a negative impact, causing manual searching through old files in off-site storage.

Return on Investment

  • 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.

  • Paycor has allowed us to be confident in all our Payroll taxes.
  • We had issues with paycor 3 years ago, but Paycor has seemed to turned itself around and reinvented itself into a much more user friendly company.

  • Paycor saves time with processing a payroll because the pay grid is super easy to use. Very intuitive!
  • Paycor saves time with administration of benefits as the benefits module is very efficient and easy to use.
  • The only negative impact so far is the time being spent on working through the kinks of the system. The time off module is not working for us yet and the reporting leaves a lot to be desired but they are working on a solution and I am hopeful.
  • UPDATE: We have left Paycor. There were many issues they could not correct.

  • Moved our payroll from a 40 hour position to a 24 hour position to an absorbed position done by an employee already in place when the 24 hour person retired.
  • Electronic on boarding has helped eliminate paper that was included with our hard copy on boarding packet.

Return on Investment

  • Paycor reduced time spend on processing payroll in house. We now only spend a few hours a week processing payroll when we used to spend at least a day.
  • Paycor has had difficulty answering tax questions and did not do a good job following up on the questions resulting in delayed financial reporting of up to a month.
  • Paycor normally does a good job releasing quarterly Payroll statements within a day or two of the end of the quarter. This helps us to respond to state and federal census' in a timely manner.

  • Onboarding electronically made life much quicker and flowed smoothly
  • Organization of employees in one place helps other to know who their upper management team is.
  • Benefit (PTO) tracking could use a better way put PTO into the system and have it carry over correctly.
