Overall Satisfaction with Paychex Flex

We used Paychex Flex for our 401k management. We were able to see our investments and our balance easily.
  • It allowed you to see a breakdown of the 401k funds
  • provided a pie chart for your investments
  • Easy and friendly customer support
  • User interface
  • Very busy home screen, could simplify this.
  • Difficult to find certain things
  • It had a positive influence on the number of employees that invested.
  • It had a positive influence on the percentage of income employees contributed to their 401k
Human Interest was able to be integrated into our other HR platform which makes it very easy to see your 401k. With Paychex, we had to log in separately.
One of the best things about Paychex was their customer support. Always helpful and friendly.

Did implementation of Paychex Flex go as expected?


Would you buy Paychex Flex again?


It is a complicated home page. The menu options are not named clearly and it is difficult to find what you are looking for.
I think it is well suited for investment information but could use some work on the user interface. If you are not used to platforms like this, then it can be difficult to navigate.

Evaluating Paychex Flex and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
Price is always a business's number one concern. Also, we need to make sure our employees can use it. I think Paychex is slightly overpriced for what you get.
I think if w could do it again we would examine more platforms. We discovered there are more out there than we had anticipated.
