Overall Satisfaction with Paylocity

We use Paylocity for payroll and HRIS. We also use various modules such as Benefits, Recruiting, Onboarding, LMS, Performance, and Time & Labor. It keeps all of the data in one system and helps minimize the "double entry" into multiple systems.

Pros

  • Reporting
  • Integration with vendors.
  • Streamlining workflows.

Cons

  • The performance reviews are a little difficult (not intuitive) for my managers.
  • I would like to see the Community feed on the home page of the Self-Service portal.
  • It would be great to have a test environment I could use to create my own training videos without showing sensitive employee data.
  • Time savings - easy for employees to view or change information.
  • Time savings - GL report and other reports that are readily available.
  • More accurate time off tracking reduces errors.
  • We are currently working on adding Benefits Enhanced, so I assume that will result in additional time savings on new enrollments.
Processing payroll has gone from a full day event to about an hour. I definitely have more time for strategic planning.
We are still trying to get employees to use these tools. When we first rolled out Impressions, we had some engagement, but it has slowed down since then. We just added some Groups in Community and plan to start using videos in our communications in the next 6 months or so. I hope that will drive additional engagement.
I have implemented Paylocity at two companies. One was using Paychex, and the other was using ADP. Paylocity is more intuitive, complete, and robust. Additionally, Paylocity offers webinars and conferences to learn more about their products as well as relevant HR topics. The reporting is way better in Paylocity, with the many standard reports and the ability to create your own.

Would you buy Paylocity again?

Yes

Paylocity has been great for many things. We were able to have a custom GL report created and scheduled, so after each payroll, the report is automatically created. I can just download it and send it to accounting to upload into our accounting software (IntAcct). Recruiting, using JobTarget makes it easy to post the job in multiple places, and it is easy for hiring managers to log in and view resumes and make notes. Onboarding streamlines the many forms and sign-offs we need before an employee starts work. No more emails with 27 attachments, or even worse large paper packages mailed out! Time & Labor makes time cards and time off requests easy to track and easy to import into the payroll batch.

Using Paylocity

15 - Myself (HR/Payroll), the CFO, the accounting department, and the people managers.
1 - Supporting Paylocity is pretty easy. The most common thing I have to do is help people get logged in when they forget their password. We have put SSO into place to reduce this type of error.
  • Recruiting
  • Onboarding
  • Payroll
  • HRIS
  • We use it for our real estate brokers to pay out commissions.
  • We are planning to use Premium Video for employee communication in the future.
We love the robust software and the many ways we can use it in our organization. We really lean into technology to make back office functions more efficient. Paylocity definitely makes me more efficient!
