Overall Satisfaction with Paylocity

Paylocity serves as our HRIS, Benefits, and Payroll system. We use it from onset with the onboarding of new colleagues through lifecycle and with exit surveys. The information we can pull from Paylocity is used directly in many departments across the organization like Finance, IT, Operations, and beyond.

Pros

  • Onboarding
  • Tax Capabilities
  • Benefits

Cons

  • Account Manager Knowledge
  • Being ahead of new laws and regulations
  • Response Times/Solutioning
  • The electronic feeds to our carriers in the benefits platform have been substantial to time saved and accuracy of employee records.
Payroll is pretty automatic for easy cases.
Surveys have been helpful in onboarding and offboarding survey information. We are collecting info on a quarterly basis to find trends and actionable items to address.
BambooHR had a much nicer interface but it had a lot less capability for our growing business, particularly in reporting.

Do you think Paylocity delivers good value for the price?

Yes

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?

Yes

Would you buy Paylocity again?

No

I think it is great for small to midsize companies and getting your basics in compliance. As a company scales and starts to get more complex, they may need to move toward a more sophisticated product that can catch things an HR team cannot.
