Overall Satisfaction with Paylocity

We use Paylocity to pay all of our employees, from the Executive Team to the Part Time Hourly Sports Instructors. This product allows all of our employees to be easily onboarded through the Paylocity App and once moved into HR & Payroll, they are able to clock in/out on their phone. For the Exempt employees, they can easily make changes to their profile and request time off and it flows through to the proper payroll.

Pros

  • Onboarding
  • Ability to send messages to Employees
  • Help setting up new states

Cons

  • Not enough ability for employees to change information through the app - not all employees have access to a computer
  • The employee cannot request some timecard changes through the app - not all employees have access to a computer
  • I really dislike that when I sort pre-employees in the Onboarding que, and then go into a record, the sort goes away. When you have 70 people in Onboarding, it would be great to come out of that profile to the same "sort" so you could keep your place if you were working your way down the list.
  • Has helped with Multi-State New Hire
  • Has helped with RAPID growth management
  • Has reduced errors in new hire information
MOST of the workflows have helped with time management.
We have just started using the Survey's more often and they have been wonderful to take the Pulse of the company. We are currently working on getting employees to use the Recognition.
I have been pleasantly surprised with how much more user friendly Paylocity is

Do you think Paylocity delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with Paylocity's feature set?

Yes

Did Paylocity live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Paylocity go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Paylocity again?

Yes

There are some minor issues that I dislike, but overall, I feel like it really is a great system. I have worked YEARS in ADP and Paycom, and I have been pleasantly surprised with how Paylocity meets and/or exceeds some of the products in those systems.
