  • The use of the ATS system has drastically reduced the amount of time our HR staff spends in recruiting and tracking candidates. It makes having multiple positions open at the same time manageable and we are not bogged down in spreadsheets. Plus candidates get more timely communication back from us.
  • Our payroll processing is more accurate and less time consuming because we have more control over our own data than in our previous system.

Return on Investment

  • Improved employee experience verses the last payroll service. They were not able to get their paystubs until a few weeks after pay.
  • The ability to have the software work with our reporting software for hours has freed up many hours of data entry and has allowed our department to become more efficient.
  • The data for payroll to put in information is easy to update if necessary and requires little effort to maintain.

  • We had had a huge increase in efficiency in our software development job costing, which has helped us to close our books in record time.
  • I believe that we have had minimized compliance risks with the ability to see an audit log for everything that is done within Paycor.
  • From what I can see, we have had improved employee experience since we had moved from Paychex and ADP prior to our transition to Paycor, which Paycor has allowed us a lot more visibility and functionality that the other providers didn't have.

Return on Investment

  • Prior to our conversion to Paycor, we did all of our annual open enrollment changes manually. Paycor assisted us with setting up our Open Enrollment event the first year, but our Benefits Administrator has been able to make the necessary changes and updates each year afterward. We also set up file feeds to our medical insurance provider which has allowed the BA to free up time and focus on other tasks.

  • We are a church and only have two employees so it's difficult to see the impact Paycor has on the church. However, as previously stated, with my past experience in manually calculating payroll, the time saved in doing just the two employees is significant.

  • The hiring process at the beginning of summer (400 employees) significantly cut down the time taken to enter all the new hires' information.
  • Employees have better access to information and the ability to self service their personal information.
  • Less time on hold and honestly significantly less payroll system issues.

My Paycor Review, The Pros & Cons

Score 1 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • 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.
