How Paylocity Differs From Its Competitors

Paylocity Automated Processes

When Paylocity works it's great. In my opinion, It's when there is a glitch that is frustrating. I like the onboarding, workflow and survey. I have had little to no issues with time and labor and payroll. I believe there should be more contact with the implementation team when bringing on a new …

We have used the training videos which I found really helpful when implementing Time & labor. Again I think the outreach from Paylocity lacks to reach out to clients and maybe introduce them to different tools that Paylocity has that the client might not be aware of.

Paylocity Automated Processes

Paylocity's payroll automation is similar to QB, however, I don't need a separately purchased module for time tracking. Time off History reporting is a breeze - right at my own and the employees fingertips. This transparency to the employee is important. My own efficiency is improved through the …

We barely use the Community and other sections because we are having difficulty getting the basic sections of the payroll to work properly and do what they are supposed to do. While enhancement and new features are great, we need the basic payroll features to work properly first before relying on …

Paylocity Employee Engagement

Very little, to be honest. You have to navigate to that section if you want to see impressions and not many people care to click on it. It's just a post that people can comment on, it's not that much of a recognition especially if people don't choose to go to that tab.

Paylocity has saved our HR team significant time when it comes to things like onboarding new hires and being able to have all required paperwork done digitally and before the start date. The reporting is very robust, and I almost always find a report that I need. The reporting can be a lot, and I …

Paylocity Employee Engagement

Our employees really enjoy the community. We have some other options for our staff so it is not utilized as much as I would like it to be. Employees always enjoy giving and receiving impressions and it is a great way for employees to call out their peers on a job well done.

There have definitely been efficiencies with PTO tracking, previously tracked and monitored with an excel spreadsheet. The elimination of paper and savings on office supplies doing evaluations, time off requests, etc., via the computer vs. paper.

The migration to a full HRIS has been a game changer for our growing business. Before Paylocity we had a lot of HR tools that had been "bolted together" and required a good deal of manual manipulation and tracking. Paylocity has saved a lot of time in the recruiting side of the business with …

Payroll is a breeze since the majority of the backend items are completed for you. <br><br>Time &amp; Labor is great; however, in HR &amp; Payroll, you have an "Approvals" Tab for time off. Our staff like the feature but select time off there, meaning they are confused as to why it does not …

I would make sure you have a dedicated team at Paylocity to complete the implementation. We had staff from Paylocity quit and things were not completed properly. They dropped the ball so to speak on that portion of it. we have encountered multiple issues since then and are still not using the Time off tracking to its full capabilities.
