Excellent rating. I have had to contact support a couple of times over the past year but overall, it isn't necessary because it is such an easy system to use. I will share that your customer support is great. That question hasn't been part of the survey but it is always a pleasure to work with the support team when necessary.

We have a complex organization and we were able to utilize Paycor and make it our own. The system is easy to uses and train new admin staff on. I think that a direct push/integration with our accounting system to record the GL details would save us at least 10 hours per month and earn them the last 2 points out of 10.

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.

The product is user friendly for the most part and easy to learn with little training and some practice. The most significant factor in usability is the ability to access the platform through the web rather using a static software product. Managers are able to use in field or on the road allowing for more regular review and revision as well the ability to process payroll on demand.

I've used other companies for this same usage and I've found Paycor to be the best. It's easy to locate what you're looking for, everything is already prepared for you and the representatives are available to assist you in anything you may need at any time. Once you've gone through a few entries, you should be comfortable to continue without assistance.

Overall Paycor is great. There are a few minor things that could be worked on, but that isn't to say that I would not 100% recommend it to anyone. Paycor has literally cut my Payroll Processing time in half, and help with numerous other things like labor cost tracking. Paycor is one of the best things to happen to our payroll.

Paycor seems to be a very complete system with a lot of flexibility. The help that can be received both online and by phone allows me to complete scenarios immediately until waiting until someone gets back with me. Training is available and it is an easy system to navigate through, especially once you learn what functions you will use most.

Paycor does not offer features that are standard with their competitors. Some examples of this are: no W2 previews, no 1095c previews, employees are not able to view their own deductions, no check calculator for employees and their report writer is severely limited.

I find the software to be intuitive, I'm not wandering around too much to find what I need. Things that I do all the time are easy to access. When something new comes up there's a great help button. There are also great videos to give you an overview when starting and ones that drill down on specific topics. Rarely do I need to reach out to the team for help, when I do they are pretty responsive. My on boarding person was great, very focused on getting everything how I wanted it. I've only called in once and the person solved my questions quickly without knowing my business personally. Overall, they have a great team of knowledgeable people backing up the software.

I believe Paycor has many options for its overall usability, even if our company or organization is not utilizing everything it has to offer.
