Haven't used a similar product.
We started strong but around our Go Live date, we were struggling a bit more getting answers to questions or support. Everyone was very helpful (Brian w/Namely Time went above and beyond several times) and supportive but some of the delays in communication or missteps on our side too, made us anxious around our rollout. This was a new move and direction for our company, so we didn't know what we didn't know and needed more guidance, for sure.
Yes. Having Namely as our HR platform was one of the biggest draws. We have started using some of the performance management aspects and want to do more. We've set up 30, 60, and 90 Day performance reviews for new employees. We have been using it for the last couple of months and it feels a bit clunky. I have no idea if it is because of how we're wanting to use it and if it is a User Error or not. But we like it and want to do more with it.
Onboarding, E-signature collection, company handbook and policies, etc. A cleaner, stronger first day impression for new employees.
How Namely presents is very clean and well-laid out, easy to navigate. Behind the scenes (especially with Payroll) is a little more clunky.
For the size of our company, Namely is perfect for communicating with the company regarding: events, updates, announcements, etc. The team has really taken to Appreciating each other using Namely, which has been nice to see. I think if your company has a strong, positive culture, Namely is great for giving that culture a digital platform.
