Pros: So the amazing feature for this app is that it is a trifecta of an HR app, a benefits app, and a payroll app all in one. So it is not only just a payroll app but it's also a place for you to store your HR employee files and as well they have some benefits pieces in there as well. They do offer benefits programs too so it's all nicely organized in one place for you.

Some more of the top features; it's super easy to run the payroll if you've used a payroll app before, it's pretty similar. It's really easy to use and there's an employee portal as well which makes it really easy, you don't have to print off or email pay stubs. The employees can go there and grab the information when they need to. They can also go in and change their information too which is pretty awesome. So they can update their address and other contact information. It does direct deposit, so again, they put in their banking information, the manager doesn't need to see it, no need to collect any forms of their banking information on it. They go in there, they get that set up and if they need to change it, they do that on their own. So it gives the employees the power to control their information.

As well, on the H.R. piece, you can store contracts, policies, any kind of documents that you would want somebody to sign off on, and there's an e-signature capability in there so they can sign off on it.

Cons: the H.R. component of the app is cool but it's pretty basic at the moment. So you upload a document and then you can get the signature, you can see if people signed off on it. I think I'd love to see them move into adding more of an LMS (learning management system) piece within that too, so that you could do your employee onboarding or training through there. Maybe have some checklists, content videos, tax, what have you, and for the employees actually go through their onboarding through the app and be able to track where they're at and which programs they've completed and not completed.

Overall: The implementation was a little bit clunky for us. So I know they're working hard to make sure that that's super smooth. But to be honest most payroll implementations with all the other apps out there are a little bit clunky so it's not something that's going to really change. Something that's missing from most of the payroll apps out there right now is that holiday pay love; for B.C. we don't do it the same way as the rest of the country. So in order for us to do our stat holiday pay calculations correctly in this province, we need to be able to input the hours on a daily basis and none of the apps are supporting us with that at the moment.

Pros: What I like most about this software is the ability for employees to onboard themselves... saves me a ton of time

Cons: What I like least are some of the uncontrollables ... like being able to change cpp, ei, or tax amounts manually if there are extenuating circumstances.s

Overall: Knit makes payroll so much easier... enter the hours and done... employees pick up their paystubs online, and Knit pays the taxes... love it.

Pros: Using Knit's payroll platform saved us alot of time and money. The platform is easy to use and Knit's customer support was excellent. Overall we got great value for what we paid for.

Cons: Knit is a great payroll solution but one thing that would be nice to have is a mobile app to access the platform. Perhaps that's something they're already working on.

Overall: Saved my company time and money associated with payroll admin costs

Pros: Employee portal is great for allowing employees to change their information, look at their paystubs, request time off and so much more.

Cons: The app needs some love, we would love to see some BC love in the stat holiday pay side. As well, the due date for payroll to be completed so that it runs on Friday is Tuesday at 9am PST which is a little hard to manage when you are a small company and people work over the weekend, especially when those pesky stat pays are involved.

Knit has been very easy to use and the setup was very simple.

Pros: I like that I can rely on Knit to always run my payroll correctly and on time. Approving payroll is easy and quick.

Cons: Sometimes certain fields are confusing (i.e. what tax implications certain payments have). Also some of the language used on the site is not as clear as it could be.

Overall: I'm able to pay employees at the company on time and correctly. Also the payroll taxes get calculated and remitted.

Pros: Ease of use , Price , Customer Service.

Overall: My organization has tried a few other more traditional payroll providers and I can tell you that Knit has really saved us. The biggest advantage with Knit has got to be the user interference and general ease of use, which completely blows away the competition. Highly recommended!
