Overall Satisfaction with Namely

Namely is being used company wide for the Core HRIS, payroll and benefits management.

Prior to using Namely, we had ZERO automation in the HR part of our business. Now that we've implemented the tool, so many of the things that I used to handle manually are now flowing automatically through the system and I don't even have to think about them. We also had no way of exposing to our employees things as simple as their benefits elections and PTO balances. I get so fewer questions now, because they can get it all themselves.
  • Employee changes workflow engine allows employees to make changes on their own and they flow directly to payroll. This removes all manual work from HR's perspective.
  • Benefits open enrollment process is all automated and updated elections flow directly to payroll. Such a timesaver at the end of the year!
  • PTO tracking is easy to use by employees, their managers, and HR.
  • The one piece of the onboarding process that could be automated (right now it's manual in Namely) is the tax forms for new employees and their direct deposit information. Those still have to be completed on paper and submitted manually.
  • The home feed could be a little more interactive, like being able to tag employees in posts, having emails sent to employees when someone's replied to a post, etc etc.
  • Time saving of multiple cumbersome manual HR processes
  • Increased visible to employees
  • Better customer service
I think Namely is a great fit for many different types of companies looking to automate their HR, payroll, benefits, performance and goal management processes. The only thing I would suggest is to inquire about the reporting that your company requires to see if Namely can support that. There may also be some complexities in your payroll processing that you would want to make sure that Namely can support.
