Terrible product with terrible protocols

Comments: As an employee, user of iSolved for payroll, I completely despise this software. It is actually inconvenient in every aspect; iSolved is slow to the point I'm unsure if it is even working, an organization does not exist for users to perform tasks and customer support is not available for non-admin users even when it requires for an error page to be fixed! The product is so slow that even a "quick punch" takes extended moments to complete. If you go further into the program it only gets worse. Try setting up a request for PTO and you are muddled to believe the program didn't notice you pushed a button. oh, wait for it. it is thinking!! Back to requesting PTO/editing absences thinking you've found where it is located to realize the organization is really expressive creativity. "Employee Absences" and "Time Off Requests" are delightful in the fact they are both the same thing but are they really? You can perform one function in both but all other functions are split apart between these tabs pushing you further into a maze of the program. Forget about remembering how you did it the first time. When it comes to requiring to update a password the procedure is completely backward. Changing a password for a payroll system should be done during work hours. However, it is always on a Monday morning when I can't clock in and need to take the time to create a new password forcing me later to have my time card edited. It is possible to send an e-mail out a couple of business days before giving the option to either update it when it's convenient, during work hours! Bringing me to my last complaint that brought me to write a review, Customer Support. I have a great appreciation for customer support centers, they always get the brunt of frustrations and then continue to make sure the customer is satisfied. I feel they are the biggest asset in a company. I completely understand the problems that arise if you let a non-admin user contact customer support as every company has different procedures and that is why you create an admin. However, I am not allowed to contact customer support to clear error messages, my administrator needs to. Even when the program directed me to do exactly that. I am then directed to "take a screen shot of the required information", send it to my admin and have them forward it along. This is extremely inefficient. I will never recommend this product to anyone due to the fact that it is slow, unorganized and inefficient. I am shocked by how much our company is paying for this unprofessional program.

Pros: That they have improved the product considerably, on an ongoing basis, over the last 2 years, which means they will continue to improve it as things change going forward.

Cons: That I was sold on it being an "all-inclusive" product 2 years ago, when it was not. It was a product that had integrated several partner products into one, which always means glitches and problems as information is translated from one system to another. Now they have changed that, but am now even more skeptical of what the sales folks tell me than before, unfortunately.

Recommendations to other buyers: The value for this product is phenomenal. In other words, what I'm getting for what I pay is above and beyond any product I've looked at. I have found that there is no "perfect" product out there, that has absolutely everything I want, and the way I want it, so why pay thousands of dollars for something I'm not 100% happy with, when I can pay hundreds for something I'm VERY satisfied with. What makes this product all that more valuable is the customer service team. Instead of them asking me to do everything, and pushing back, they have gone above and beyond to not only help me understand the product better, but also will help me out in a pinch in actually getting things done. For me, and what I'm looking for in an HRIS/HRMS, it is WELL worth both the set up fees, and ongoing fees. It makes sense to me, AND they don't come back and nickel and dime me to death, adding on costs for either reports, or processing something, at a later date. HOPEFULLY that doesn't change!!

iSolved should be more like iSuck.

Comments: It took 6 months to implement 43 employees to be able to use iSolved, it started with our contract just sitting to be reviewed for almost a month, due to our salesman going on vacation, 1 failed go-live which had lasting repercussion through the whole term of our contract, the program was dreadfully slow, and extremely complex when it came to even just a simple time and attendance date range data being pulled into one streamed line summary report to setting up new employees. The lack of communication between iSolved employees, and between myself and their implementation specialist is a joke. The cartoon drawing of two people holding a can, attached by the string is what comes to mind reflecting on our experience with iSolved. Their helpfulness to help make a smooth transition for our company to use their software, was about as smooth as hitting rocks with a lawn mower. This company is not customer service based, they are cash based, and by that I mean, how much they can milk you for before you realize what a huge mistake you made and are now stuck in a year long contract with them, and even then your lucky to get out without paying more than you owe. My suggestion don't settle with iSolved.

Pros: The ACA reporting feature, tracking the FTE status of your current employees. Besides that nothing was stand out amazing.

Cons: From the moment the contract was signed to several months out of our contract, we are still dealing with the repercussions of a company, that does not know how to communicate, that does not put the customers needs other than what they get billed on a monthly basis as a priority.

Pros: It's easy to use once you get the hang of the system including to upload documents, schedule reviews, change salaries, schedule training, etc. It is easy for associates too to track their pay and vacation, change address, withholding, etc

Cons: I don't like that creating reports can be challenging at times, and the functions sometimes limit what we are looking to create.

Comments: Overall pretty easy to use, it's just lacking some features I would like to have a fully integrated system instead of partners for Benefits and applicant tracking. Was a big step up from our previous system- OnlineEmployer where we used paper time cards and manual data entry.

Pros: ESS, Onboarding, Time cards. Viewing pay history and stubs, web-based access. Manager approvals of PTO requests and PTO Balance/accrual tracking and rules that automatically adjust accruals based on length of service. One database for most information, partners for benefits administration/carrier feeds and ATS Partner.

Cons: Access options are clunky- would be nice to be able to activate certain access by individual rather than setting up groups. Most of the setup has to be done by the payroll company, must go back and forth to set up certain things and special check runs. Time off requests do not project balance at the time of the request, only based on current balance.

Comments: Go with a larger, better organised, more well-known company. This was recommended to us by our insurance broker, but I doubt he had any idea of the lack of functionality. In the set-up process, we were promised certain functions, only to discover that the system couldn't actually do them.

Pros: It looks pretty

Cons: Everything. Functionality is far below other HR, Payroll and Time-Keeping systems; there his a high staff turnover; staff are not well trained; the Help and University options are almost useless; the platform is not intuitive and badly designed, cannot make simple changes without notifying staff, cannot have employees work in more than one department, the Amcheck server crashes regularly

Comments: Using as an HR portal for time and employee management of all of the HR information. The functions it poses work, and as a way of securing my info, it is good i suppose, but as a daily portal it is useless.

Pros: Well presented and EXTREMELY, ANNOYINGLY secure.

Cons: This software requires SO much authentication that you basically can't get anything done. Every time I use it - even though I know my password and all of my authentication answers - I still have to go through fifteen minutes of authentication process involving TWO e-mails with authentication numbers, first to approve a password reset because it's been a few days, then to approve the computer I am on because... well.. because it's been a few days! Then the e-mail algorithm required is so complex and requires changing so often that everyone at my company has to write theirs down to remember it... where is the security in that?

Good product, high prices.

Cons: High cost for what we need, can be time consuming to enter new people into the system / end people who are currently in the system.

Pros: I love the intuitive flow of the software, especially between different modules (TimeForce, Payroll, HR, etc.). I also love their reporting tool. It is one of the most robust and dynamic reporting tools I have experienced with hr/payroll needs. I also love their pricing model. When comparing to other vendors, I found that iSolved was the best to accommodate for economies of scale at reasonable prices.

Cons: I wish the payroll module had better integration options with accounting software. Currently it involves exporting a built report that is formatted in a CSV file to import into QuickBooks.

Recommendations to other buyers: I highly recommend you take the time to walk through several demos to see how their software works. The system is built to handle some robust needs, and it can be overwhelming if you don't understand the purpose of different modules. The staff are helpful and knowledgeable with what they are doing.

Very easy system to use and it's great having payroll & time/attendance in a all in one system. It i"solved" our problem with time savings!

Comments: iSolved seems to be great for payroll but on the HRIS side of things, it is very rigid. No system customization is available to run workflows (specifically with New Hires and Terminations, but also for a number of other items), Reporting for open enrollment did not communicate to our benefits administrator and we had to manually manipulate the data to match what needed to be transmitted. For this, we were not able to automatically push data and have had to manually enter it every month. Timekeeping has been an issue because we have employees that work in various departments and the system does not do well with that. HR doesn't have the ability to do very much and have to get iSolved reps to do it for us. Overall a very rigid system with little to no flexibility to make a system work for our company.

Recommendations to other buyers: I am sure this would be a great system for whatever it was originally created, however, it does not work for health care

Pros: I like that I can manually enter a check or additional check for an employee at any time without running it through QuickBooks.

Cons: I dislike the new call any rep. I feel that when it was one-on-one with the rep, the rep knew more about my particular company. That has been lost.

Recommendations to other buyers: iSolved is much better than ADP or others, as there is a system employees can log into to see all payments. If they are set up for direct deposit, you don't have to print a stub. It saves paper and money.

Pros: The customer support is great and most often issue resolved on first call. Set up was quick and the system is very user friendly. Works well for both large companies and small entities with multiple entities/payrolls. Best pricing I've seen in the market for all the features this system offers. Especially the ACA Reporting, they make it extremely simple!

Cons: Should make the set up for reviews/questions/scheduling reviews easier for multiple entities. If they do this, then I would give them the 5 stars. Have had some issues with the TimeForce option, if I had to do it again would just go with the iSolved Time for the timekeeping option.

Pros: I really appreciate that they have a mobile app to allow me to punch in and out using my phone, and verifying my hours is a piece of cake.

Cons: I thought that it took quite a bit of time to get used to the user interface. it doesn't flow very well. I also don't like the fact that they don't allow you to just enter a chunk of time on your time card from your phone, you can only punch in or out, which means remembering to do so or having to find a computer to log your time. I also think that they should have a better method of recording what you were doing during said time and reporting that to your supervisors.

Pros: Customer Service is Great. The implementation process was smooth. Payroll and HR Management is great.

Cons: Would like to see more attention paid to the Onboarding module. We would like it to be more customizable. I suppose changes and additions are on the way.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's very inexpensive so for your money its one of the best out there and I've seen a lot. Do your research and demo other systems.

Pros: The Employee Self-Serve portal is so helpful to me as the the single support staff for HR. It allows employees to update their records as well as obtain any HR or corporate documents electronically.

Cons: It has taken longer than expected to implement the timecard and payroll integration. This was due primarily to the fact that our company had so many variables in the time reporting feature.

Recommendations to other buyers: The implementation specialists (SMEs) for this product have been outstanding. These are the individuals that need to ensure that the features you require are available, not the sales rep.

Comments: Our company changed Payroll software to iSolved--love the flexibility for individuals to make changes as needed rather than asking HR to input everything e.g increase extra tax through the year. It is easy to maneuver through the platform and input what is needed. There are features not yet explored by our company and I'm anxious for more to be rolled out to us. Rated Customer Support and Value for Money 4 stars as I haven't had interactions with Customer Support and am unsure what the cost is to our company so unable to judge any higher.
