Overall Satisfaction with Namely

Namely does a number of things for us.

Namely is our:
-HR management software.
-Time management and PTO management with an "on the go" cell phone app that our employees really like.
-Payroll management software.
-Our main company communication tool, that allows us to communicate with employees, recognize employee achievements, and then allows employees a vehicle to congratulate other employees for what they have accomplished.
  • Namely has helped with our COVID sick leave response. It has made a major difference both with the weekly payroll and the 941 tax filing
  • Keeping track of our multiple PTO plans. Thank goodness for Namely, I have shredded my old PTO spreadsheets.
  • Employees like the convenience of the cell phone app. As a payroll administrator, I like the Geo Tracking tool where I can see where some are when the clock is in or out.
  • The flexibility inside of the payroll system both as you are finalizing an employee profile and when you are processing payroll is a major advantage.
  • The reports I get out of Namely in Excel format work well for me.
  • The payroll reports are very flexible; however, the criteria that I used to create a report are nowhere to be found on many of the Excel spreadsheets.

Yes

Would you buy Namely again?

Yes

  • We came from a payroll environment that took a significant amount of time to process time cards and prepare payroll. What took a full day plus now is done much faster.
  • Employees know their payroll is correct. They review their own time to verify.
  • Error reduction.
The implementation team took the time to get it correct from the beginning.
Having the entire HR, payroll, time and attendance, benefits, employee and company employment documents in one place saves time and effort.

Having all the documents online eliminates the file cabinet chase as you look for a specific document.
Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365)
  • Time and Attendance.
  • PTO Calculation.
  • Payroll Processing.
  • Employee Onboarding.
Namely is intuitive and information flows easily form HR to Payroll to Benefits to Time and Attendance.
Namely has fit well into our corporate environment. I credit that to the initial setup team from Namely and our team that was led by our HR Director.

Payroll day is always a day of challenges. With a combination of hard deadlines to get processing complete and the review of the data before the payroll information flows through the system. Complications such as management requiring a new pay code at the last minute which will involve submitting a case to Namely Support for guidance. The timely response from Namely Support made the day run smoother.
