Personablity and productivity were high on their good side and the overall flow and application of the app or desktop site were both high positives, and even though you had to wait 48 hours usually for a response, when you needed help you at least know they're reliable and responsible...even if they're not hasty.

Pros

This company had excellent rollout of the product into the work environment with the most amazing customer support I've ever received. Training and utilization were easy to understand and execute, with very little hiccups at all. Their app is colorful and keeps you very updated on your progress and profile management issues!

Cons

There wasn't an easy way to find answers to questions "fast", you would always get a personable and functional response to your questions from a real human who knew your name, but sometimes an immediate assist is more important than an overly communicative/thorough one.

All in One HR Software

Reviewed on 05/10/2022

Pros

Paylocity makes it easy for us to manage everything from onboarding, timekeeping, PTO, and payroll. We had two separate systems for timecards and payroll and no system for onboarding before and Paylocity has helped us go almost completely paperless. Timekeeping is easy and the mobile app is excellent for the employees.

Cons

Since the product is modular (pick and choose which modules you would like), some processes require a little hopping between applications but everything works very well together.

Alternatives Considered

BambooHR, Paychex Flex and Paycor

Reasons for Choosing Paylocity

Our timekeeping app was awful and not well integrated with our payroll system

Switched From

Sage 100

Reasons for Switching to Paylocity

Don't believe the sales person lies - Terrible Customer Service - LACKING FEATURES & AUTOMATION

Reviewed on 03/11/2022

THE WORST service & features. Spend more & save more in the long run, I promise

THE WORST service & features. Spend more & save more in the long run, I promise

Pros

Onboarding is nice to have, I really like this module, just wish there was more we could do with it. We are still limited and having to use outside software to do things we thought we could do with this system.

Cons

The service is terrible, from the sales process, through implementation to several months in . Lack of Features, lacking BASIC features. & there is no hope on the rise. We have had to run so much outside of this system.

Great system that's flexible and I can pay for what I need

Reviewed on 04/08/2022

Pros

I love the interface and intuitive location of tabs. Finding what I need is easy and the search gets me answers to most questions without having to call tech support

Cons

I don't like that my account manager keeps changing, I understand turn over is high currently but it's much better to not have to "fill in" each person I call on whatever issue we were working on. There is currently a gap between what we can do remotely on the mobile app and what we can do in the browser based system. I need more functionality on the mobile devices.

Alternatives Considered

ADP Workforce Now and Paychex Flex

Reasons for Switching to Paylocity

Their ability to give me what I need and not some giant package with things that cost me but I'll never use... Paychex was comparably priced but the company didn't seem like they would keep up with product development as well as Paylocity.

Upgrade for HR & Payroll

Reviewed on 29/09/2022

Pros

Paylocity has helped us streamline HR and payroll. We can now onboard new employees using this system vs. the manual system we were using previously. We were also able to do away with several applications as Paylocity was able to do all of the same jobs as they were doing. This made the cost of Paylocity turn into a savings when we removed the cost of all the additional applications.

Cons

There have not been any cons about this software at this point. Implementation was streamlined and efficient and our team has been excited to use the new system.
