Overall Satisfaction with Paylocity Web Pay

In my prior position as payroll administrator we used WebPay with WebTime to process payroll for hourly, weekly, and salary semi-monthly payroll for the corporate and field offices.
  • Processing payroll for 900+ employees became a lot quicker with Paylocity; once time was approved by managers you imported the batch and processed.
  • Entering data was very easy and user friendly
  • Uploading employee paperwork into their profile is the best
  • Maybe some improvement on the badge number situation. If possible, Paylocity could work on something so that when you enter a termination date the badge number goes back to the employee number automatically
  • Setting up security roles for reports was a little challenging, it works, but took some time
  • Better customer service. Employees were able to access information on their own
  • ADP eTime,ADP Workforce Now,QuickBooks Pro,PeopleSoft Financials,Workday
Paylocity is quickly working their way up to be in the top ranks as ADP.
While I was asked what I liked about Paylocity, the payroll manager had the final say so on making it happen.
I would definitely recommend Paylocity because of its ease, no matter where you are. If you have a computer, you can approve timecards or process payroll.

Paylocity Web Pay Implementation

The Implementation team members are very knowledgeable in their field and made this such an easier process
Yes - 

You're assigned a Lead Implementation rep. he/she will do a work plan/timeline (they have an awesome process)

You will then have weekly meetings to keep you on task as to what everyone (in-house & Paylocity) is doing and where everyone should be by "go live" date (everyone is held accountable)

You will have a team of implementation reps. to guide you through all of your processes for GL, Accruals, chart of accounts, new hire templates, benefits, etc.


  • General Ledger was a huge issue for us; this took a little longer than expected because of all the parties involved but in the end it was worth it
  • Vacation Accruals; starting in the middle of the year was a challenge; so unless you plan on entering current employee balances and having the accruals recognize from "live" date; I would suggest a clean start, January 1
  • Benefits verification

  • uploading time from WebTime into Web Pay
  • approval process of timecards can be done from any location as long as you have a computer or smart phone

it was great, if my managers were not in the office they could approve time from their phone.

employees could use the mobile interface to see paystub information
