Overall Satisfaction with Namely

It allows companies of all sizes to use one HR system that integrates HR data management, payroll processing, and benefits seamlessly and without having to log in to multiple software platforms. Namely has been an amazing tool that our executives, managers, and employees alike, feel comfortable using and it allows them to be engaged with employees across the organization. This software has elevated our business, we went from a fully manual system to complete automation in a very short amount of time. The product continues to develop, so the possibilities for improvement to our processes are endless!
  • Extremely high level of professionalism and standards in customer support and service.
  • Namely uses customer insights to improve their product and they take suggestions seriously.
  • Seamless integration of all HR systems in one platform.
  • Increase functionality of reporting.
  • Change how to review access roles and make security parameters more clear.
  • Increase mobility of the company organizational chart.
  • Increased dialogue between managers and employees about performance with the automated review process.
  • Increased employee engagement with the dashboard news feed.
  • Increased PTO tracking accuracy with a step by step approval process between the managers and employees.
I think that Namely was built to be used by companies of all sizes and industries, the platform is customizable to fit your organization's needs and it allows you to select what modules you want to implement. We started with just HR management and realized that implementing the Payroll module would add a ton of benefit to our employees and it would make it easier for our HR professionals.

Using Namely

Overall, Namely is a very user friendly platform, most of the functionality can be learned with out much training or guidance. They have designed it to be modeled similar to other social media sites interface which makes it clean in design and easy to navigate. If you do have someone at your organization that is less tech savvy, one of the most impressive parts of Namely continues to be their client support. They will support you and give guidance in every aspect if its training or just pointing out a feature and how it works!

  • I would like to see improvements on the report builder.
Yes - The mobile app is new and I would describe it as fairly basic in functionality, but I have a feeling Namely will be adding more to its capabilities based on client feedback and and suggestions.
