The implementation team is fantastic from start to finish. They have experts in every area that can help you figure out solutions to fit your needs. I have no doubt that they can help you transition from whatever software you are currently using to Paylocity with ease and clarity.
See benefits realized below for all of the other things I love about this software!
Some people may not love the extra time it takes right before and during the implementation, but, you get out what you put in. If you do the bare minimum when they are trying to prepare the software for you, you will still get a great product. But if you tell them all about your needs and the struggles with the processes you currently have, they will work diligently to help you overcome those and make your life easier whether it is in the Payroll, HR, or Accounting department.
Take the time to figure out what exactly you want this software to do for you. They will make it work. I had several requests before, during and after implementation and they have accommodated all of them. The more time you take on the front end only decreases the amount of work on the back end.
My time to process payroll has been cut in half or more.
-I was remitting all of my taxes either manually or electronically based on reports from my previous software. Now, all of my taxes are remitted by Paylocity and this is so great. I don't have to worry about weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual remittances any more(this is all backed by them, if they make an error they take responsibility). They even send a new hire report to my state agency every month and take care of remitting garnishments.
-We were already using electronic time keeping that was imported into our payroll software, but now it is all in one system and I can have my managers review and approve time cards with more ease and accuracy.
Employees can see all pay, time off and time worked information from an app on their smartphone. Or not. You get to completely customize the employee Self Service Portal for what employees can and can't do or see. They can fill out new direct deposit forms or be notified of handbook changes or other news all from this one page that they have access to at any given time.
Time off accrual and tracking is much better. We were doing this by hand previously.
On-boarding is INCREDIBLE! No more stacks of paperwork for the employee or you to deal with. 99% of it can be done from an iPad.
Web benefits is amazing. I don't have to manually sign people up on 5 different websites for different coverage types or deal with stacks of paperwork from employees. The employee follows a link to one site for all benefits, signs up for what they want, then everything is pushed to the providers.
