Pros: Namely HRIS is a fantastic program, layout, very easy to use. The integration process was great and our implementation manager for Namely HRIS was fantastic.

Cons: Namely time is very basic and hard to use. The scheduling feature is very basic and time consuming. In addition, the integration between the Namely systems don't exist at all. Simple information needs to be entered into both systems and the integration capabilities are very basic. Switching to this system was supposed to cut down on every day HR/admin work, however, now she just spends her time making the programs match. Basic integrations like making an employee inactive doesn't even exist, you have to do it first in Namely HRIS then go to Namely Time and do it again. For employee hours to feed back into Namely HRIS, you have to pull a report out of Namely Time and import it back into Namely HRIS. I was promised seamless integration by our sales rep and I feel very mislead. The Namely HRIS application is completely different from the Namely Time application and it's different sign-ons.

Pros: I like Namely because it is so simple to navigate. Our old HR software was clunky and badly organized. As an employee, I only ever need to check this sort of thing on occasion, and there are a few specific things I look for when I do, like paystubs. I want those things to be easy to find so I can get in and out as fast as possible. Namely makes that easy.

Cons: There are some features that just don't seem necessary for an HR software, like a social feed, performance reviews, and task management. We have plenty of other softwares that accomplish those functions, but I'm sure other teams could get good use out of them.

Comments: I would avoid the service. I have moved on to Gusto and found that the system is easy to use and thus far has not had any glitches.

Pros: In theory their service is end-to-end. what we found was that the modules didn't seamlessly exist so information was being entered twice

Cons: the system isn't true single sign-in. The customer service was abysmal and their sales process wasn't very honest

Features & Functionality

Pros: Navigation: The navigation menu is stunningly simple, which is a breath of fresh air compared to other services like Zenefits. All navigation options are listed in a nice column on the left hand side; no confusion.

Service Offerings: What has been really nice with Namely so far is that we no longer need to use a separate HR service or a separate paystub tracking service. We have effectively ceased using ADP and Zenefits in favor of Namely. I'm all for software simplification and Namely does just that.

Cons: UI/UX: If I'm being honest, I'm not sure I like the UI/UX. It looks like a re-skinned and scaled back version of LinkedIn. I also highly dislike the twitter-style news feed as soon as you login. I don't need or want more channels of internal communication.

Not much going on: Namely simply has little going on. If I dont need to request PTO, see the holiday calendar, or review my paystub, I have zero reason to login and use Namely. Perhaps it is just better that way, but Namely does little to encourage me to login and actually use the service. It feels more like a checkbox service where we have and use it to check a checkbox for company needs.

Sensitive Info: The Namely administrator can make certain sensitive information available for all to see, such as birthdays, personal phone number, or personal address. Day 1 of using Namely we had a lot of this information available for everyone to see, but it has since been restricted.

Pros: The customer service. Every system has bugs/quirks that need improvement, but Namely's staff are always there to help you whenever you have a question. Why they're the best is b/c they assign individuals to your account who are specialized with product knowledge. Unlike most big box systems who give you an 800 number and a case number, Namely gives you direct phone numbers to your go-to partners and they are always as excited to help you b/c Namely does an incredible job of hiring amazing talent. Yes, Namely has an incredible integrated product. And yes, their price point is very competitive. But the part that means the most to me is their people and Namely has invested where it counts, in them.

Cons: Timesheets don't carry over from leave tracking and no ATS. But that's easy for us to work around since we don't hire much and we have only 2 people on timesheets.

Pros: We recently implemented Namely and it's been a welcome addition! Making benefit elections was a breeze. Managing time off is very simple and easy to track for managers and employees alike. We've also moved our quarterly MBOs from google sheets to Namely.

Cons: The biggest con seems to be general slowness in loading pages. It seems like almost every page I click takes a few seconds to load as opposed to instantaneous loading. I would love to see their lightweight performance management system be improved so I can conduct weekly 1:1 q/a and follow up in namely as opposed to google docs.

Pros: Namely is fairly intuitive. Most employees have not needed much in the way of training or tutorials and they like the eases of use and the user interface. It can be customized fairly well and the team and account reps are always available to help. I also love how it integrates so many HR functions under one roof and all are done well.

Cons: One minor drawbacks on time off reports is you cannot run a report to see vacation balances as of a certain day in the past (or future) - it is only current. Also, navigating is a bit clunkier than I'd like - there are no dynamic searches and you cannot jump from a Teams page for one employee to a Teams page for another employee with one click.

Pros: I work almost exclusively on the payroll sides of Namely, and I've found it to be user friendly and super intuitive. The easily accessible training videos are fantastic and great when you find yourself asking, "How do I do that again?" My favorite part is the easy navigation!

Cons: I can't say that I actively dislike anything. I think because I'm still learning the software there are going to sections that I don't know how to work as efficiently. IE: I'm hoping there's a way to link our 401k directly in, so that when users make individual changes through the fidelity portal it automatically update (like other benefits sections do). Not sure if that's possible?

Overall: Peace of mind. Ease/Accessibility. Confidence in the accuracy of our payroll.

Cons: It doesn't have all of the features I would like, but they're constantly adding on features and listening to the feedback of their clients.

Overall: I receive constant HR news, updates from Washington, compliance notices, and best practice data. The ability to organize our employees and teams with all of their personal information greatly improves internal communication. It helps our employees have access to their payroll history, benefits, signed forms, and company news on a daily basis.

I also like how the performance management/goal setting module (included) is so customizable. Also - it is SO much easier and cleaner to use than some other big payroll companies...and more affordable.

Cons: There's a few advanced features that sometimes require additional assistance to implement (roles & permissions), but honestly, I haven't found many issues!

Pros: ser friendly. Easy to navigate through the website and very easy to run custom reports in the HRIS side. We are also utilizing their on-boarding, performance management and benefits enrollment features to save the company time as well as to reduce paperwork.

Cons: Biggest concern is that the Payroll module is as robust as Namely claims it to be. The report writer is limited and there are manual double entries that you need to do to if you are tracking PTO as well as other information using their HRIS module. We ended up purchasing their Namely Time module because the web-clock and PTO Tracking in their HRIS module is very limited; the web-clock is unable to round worked hours as we track employee hours worked in 15 minute increments and PTO Tracking was not accruing the correct amount of sick and vacation balance for the employees which caused us to manually track PTO for 6 months on a spreadsheet. Even with the Namely Time module, it does not fully integrate with Namely Payroll, therefore, all accrued vacation and sick balances does not feed over and we are not able to show the accrued balances on employees┬┐ pay-stubs which is required by law in California. We have NOT been in compliance for over 10 MONTHS .

Overall: We are trying to minimize paper clutter and store information digitally which is one of the reasons why we chose Namely. On-boarding process is much more automated as you can upload all required documents into a template and have new employees complete them using e-signature. Performance Management feature makes it very easy to keep track of everyone┬┐s progress and manage from the administrative side. Benefits Open Enrollment is now automated and employees will be accountable for making changes or selecting new coverage.

Pros: Clean look & easy to use (for admins & employees). Truly an all in one platform that makes HR's life much easier & more organized.

Constantly rolling out new products based on customer feedback! Amazing and kind support team that is always available by phone and email for questions!

Cons: Like any HRIS, it takes time and a dedicated HR individual or team to get it up and running because it's so customizable. The pay off is well worth it though!

Comments: Don't let your fear of change deter you from moving to a truly innovative and integrated solution.

Pros: Long list here. Everything in one place. Simple to access. Easy to use. Mobile. Integrated with several other key partners. FABULOUS customer service. Conversion is handled professionally, competently and quickly. Managers are delighted to be able to master the "dark arts" of goals, performance reviews, time off, resources and more. From the CEO out to every person at Namely, there's a vibe of energy, commitment and smarts. How refreshing.

Cons: Short list here. Like any innovative, new solution, there are features we users crave. The Namely product development team are fast and responsive. The product roadmap is shared with us. Oh, this was the cons list. Sorry. Done.

Overall, good experience.

Pros: The central news feed is a great, social tool, especially useful for keeping everyone up-to-date. Some of the functions are fantastic - the onboarding, the performance tool, the time off function, and its very easy to customise some of the profile fields to your own requirements. Also, it will be great when the new reporting tool is rolled out, and you can do point in time reporting.

Cons: There are limitations in terms of some of the functions for non-US employees. For example, we can't track UK or Canadian expenses through Namely. Also, some of the recent changes have meant we have had to change our internal processes to fit, rather than having the flexibility to do it the other way round.

Pros: Namely saves the day when I began my search for help with attendance time tracking for my employees! It is user friendly and easy to use I cut the cost of needing an HR manager!

Pros: The ability to customize the system and tailor it to our unique culture. The newsfeed and birthday/work anniversary reminders are amazing!

Cons: How an employee PTO balance is reported in Namely. Currently, the PTO plan is set up so that each employee's PTO renews on their anniversary date. It's confusing and it is not the true available PTO balance.

Overall: PTO requests are easy and I love appreciating my fellow co-workers!

Comments: The support team and onboarding tools are both fantastic. They've recently added a "goals" feature that we are just starting to use, so that is exciting. Overall, it's a great value for the price.

Pros: Great UI, compared to other HRIS products of similar cost. The internal support team is very responsive and helpful. There is a wide range of tools to choose from: onboarding, PTO, performance reviews, benefit portals, payroll, etc. I've found the onboarding feature very helpful, as new hires can start their HRIS profile, as well as read and agree to all new hire paperwork.

Cons: The API leaves some room for improvement, but I believe they are working to improve it. Also, the benefits portal works well, but the "electronic feed" to the insurance company hasn't worked for us. Well, it works, it just doesn't link accurate information. I believe they are working on that as well. The performance review reminders are not found in an intuitive manner, but the program itself is pretty easy to use once you know where to find things.

Comments: namely is simple and easy to use. It's extremely beneficial to have all of your HR documents and information in one place (online). As an employee, you can quickly view how many days of PTO you have accrued, then see which holidays you have off, and then view your past paychecks. Extremely user friendly and efficient software. Wonderfully designed as well.

Pros: Ease of use, having the information all in one screen (with multiple tabs), streamlines HR process, great design.

Cons: Inputting hours is a manual process if you are hourly - a bit time consuming. Seems like this process could be automated somehow.

Cons: None at this time as we have just started using the product

Overall: We recently switched to Namely as our primary HR platform and it is leaps and bounds better than ADP, our previous solution. It integrates seamlessly with our SSO platform and provides a nice clean, clear, and concise interface.

Recommendations to other buyers: Namely is definitely an improvement over ADP and suits well with our other cloud-based platforms.

Pros: Ease of use and modern platform that is easily recognizable for employees and managers.

Cons: There needs to be more integration between the different modules (HR & Payroll), but this is something that is on their roadmap. I'm already seeing improvements after being in the software for a couple of months.

Overall: Namely provides a software package that covers the essential needs of any HR department, including HRIS, payroll and benefits administration. HRIS is easy to use and logical from both an administrator and self-service perspective. Payroll is quick to run and has one of the fastest processing times I've seen. Benefits just work. Lots of options to meet your needs from the benefits side with great transparency for employees to understand the total cost of benefits provided to them.

It's important to realize that Namely is a newer entrant to the HR software arena. You will not find the level of complexity and advanced options available through some of the larger legacy systems out there, but there is no software bloat in the Namely system either. The company is continually enhancing their products and provides updates on their software roadmap up to 18 months out, which I have never seen an HR software company do before. This level of transparency really helps to build confidence that this is a company that is open to feedback and acts quickly to ensure they are providing their clients with the best system out there.

Recommendations to other buyers: Understand that this is newer software and it is essential to voice your feedback. They are very responsive and will let you know upfront if your feedback/request is on their upcoming list of enhancements or not.

Comments: My company has a very complex payroll, including full-time, part-time, and variable hour employees. It has been a struggle getting payroll to be efficient, as I don't think the payroll portal was created to accommodate such an intricate, complex payroll set up like my company has. However, the HR portal has been fantastic to use and has helped our employees, located all over the US, feel more engaged with our headquarters and overall company mission. With the integration with TimeClock Plus, I believe the payroll issues will be worked out and the system will provide a highly rated overall experience.

Comments: Namely is a great up and coming product. It has most of the key features a standard HRIS system has and working on integrating and updating more features which will hopefully make it a greater product.

It does have a few disconnects that you would otherwise not experience with other HRIS systems, however, hopeful these will be addressed in future roadmaps and upgrades.

Good app so that contact details are at your fingertips - just need to release the Android version as currently only in iOS version.

Very simple to use and has a great UI experience.

Pros: Ease of use is it's #1 asset

Cons: Sometimes simple things weren't contemplated early enough in building out an HRIS system (e.g. 3 different direct deposit accounts (some people like auto debit from payrolls; state tax categories)

Overall: Namely has a great user experience from both the employee standpoint, as well as an admin in the system. You can capture as much data as you want and build custom categories which makes data collection robust and easy. The support team is responsive on all matters, despite the time zone differences. Overall a great product and big bang for the buck (with some minor roadmap additions).

Recommendations to other buyers: Overall a very good user experience for both end user as well as HR teams. I use the system to pivot tons of data that helps me make better data-driven decisions related to people matters at our company.

Pros: The user interface and customization of HRIS data.

Cons: The integration between HRIS and payroll is still somewhat manual, and the reporting features are not as robust as they could be.

Overall: We have been with Namely for just about a year, and have had a pretty good experience. Their modern take on HR is what hooked us in the beginning, and they have been adding key features along the way. Their customer support is very responsive and knowledgable, yet the integration between HRIS and payroll is still somewhat manual. As with any new company there are some hiccups, but overall we have been pleasantly surprised.

Comments: Overall, Namely is a great HRIS! It's nice to have your employee data, payroll, benefits and potentially your employee files all in one place. The ease of use is great, the UI is wonderful, and our account manager has been great to work with. However, the only downside we've had this far are implementation issues. The timecard system in Namely is a bit cumbersome (but they are working on a new release) and we did have communication issues during implementation (i.e things not getting done that we were told were being worked on.)

Pros: Ease of use, user experience.

Cons: Doesn't appear to be a lot of integration with HRIS and payroll - but it sounds like it's coming.

Pros: Namely, newsfeed has really had positive feedback from our employees. Love that we can have documents and HR information all in one place - the employee's profile.

Cons: The payroll side of things is not as easy to use as the HR side. They don't "talk" to each other as they should -- information doesn't roll over from HR to Payroll automatically - there are times when manual adjustments need to be made.

Overall: We implemented Namely HR and Payroll in September 2016. They have great customer support, account managers, and implementation teams. Very helpful and stay on top of to-do lists with weekly updates. The HR side and newsfeed have been a hit for our employees. They LOVE it. It is a great avenue for us to provide our remote locations insight on what our company is doing and a one-stop shop for employee information. The payroll side of things, however, isn't as user-friendly. We have a somewhat complicated payroll, due to the size of our company and multiple divisions, that we have come across some areas of improvement. We continue to work with Namely for system improvements that will maximize our efficiency and accuracy with payroll and benefits process, specifically integrations for time clocks and Cobra providers.

Comments: Our company recently had our HR rep change her availability to half time with the possibility that she would no longer be available to us in the near future. While exploring options, Namely became a great way to automate and track many of the things that she used to spend time doing. I have loved using the service so far! If I want to know what our insurance policy covers, Namely stores that information. If I want to change my benefits package in any way, Namely allows me to see the next time I'm eligible to do so and do it all online. This has been such an easy way to manage HR in a workforce that has many individuals away from the office or remote much of the time. It has reduced the amount of paper needed for many of our HR practices as well since most of these documents can be generated, signed, and stored online. Very easy to use and set up and I would recommend it to anyone!

Pros: Customizable; modern; streamlined

Cons: Ad hoc (sometimes it feels like new features or functionality is tacked on); inconsistent (sometimes, the product doesn't work as described)

Overall: I work for a nonprofit organization with more than 60 employees in over 20 states (we're a remote workforce), and we began using Namely after leaving a different software in the summer of 2016. I struggled to decide between a three and four-star review. For now, I'm going with a three, but I reserve the right to revise upward or downward in future weeks and months.

Our sales and introductory phase with Namely was excellent. We learned a lot about the product and Namely's offerings, and, obviously, our organization was sold. As I've seen noted in some other reviews, there were problems with our implementation. Our payroll was set up incorrectly, even though Namely had payroll registers to model on, and that error resulted in the underpayment of taxes. To Namely's credit, they put a lot of work in to correct the issue and file amendments, but it was disappointing that poor implementation resulted in something like that. We've also had spotty responsiveness and support, but that has improved as the kinks have gotten worked out (which is somewhat backward to what you, as a customer, might want).

Outside of the implementation and responsiveness, we love the platform. I love that we have so much control over payroll (that wasn't the case with other software), and the HRIS side of things is much more sleek, streamlined, and easy to understand.

In summary, I would say our relationship and experience is improving over time, but there's still some damaged trust and suspiciousness after the rocky implementation.

It's so easy!

Pros: I mostly love being able to have HR, benefits and payroll information all in one spot! Of course Namely is not the only program which can handle these processes, but I do find Namely very flexible and capable of handling all our needs.

Cons: We may be unique, but we do value anonymity in our review process. I do wish the review program settings could be set at the company level so that all managers could initiate the process in the same manner. without my needing to ensure it is handled in the same way each time. I've communicated our need and I'm sure Namely is assessing to see if this is something other companies could use as well.

Overall: We love Namely for our HR, benefit and payroll administration. And our employees enjoy the social feed area as well. The site is flexible, easy to use and we get wonderful support from our Namely team!

Recommendations to other buyers: Be sure to check out Namely before making any final choices on new HR, benefits or payroll software.

Comments: I have been doing payroll for over 25 years. This may be a good Human Resources software, I would not know, but the payroll software and staff is by far the worst I have ever used. Our company was set-up for payroll taxes in states where we had no operation. We told Namely that we did not have nexus in the state. Yet employees had deductions taken out and funds were erroneously submitted to the state. From all of the states that were messed up, it will take at least 18 months to fix our state taxation from only using Namely for 9 months. There are many other more cost effective and competent payroll services available. I strongly recommend using them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't believe the marketing.

Comments: It has a modern look and feel, although it's starting to get a little dated (no major update to the design since launch). There's a good amount of functionality - I like the HRIS, payroll and benefits all in one, but the three still need to be fully integrated, and there are missing pieces such as HR reporting and analytics (significant gap, IMO). The customer service has been mixed - seems to come down to who you are working with (some are very good and others less so). The system has a decent amount of configurability. There's an open API, but I think they still need a more robust partner network. And the integrations need to be deeper in order to really unlock the potential. Overall, Namely is the best option I've seen for 100-1,000 employee, high-growth companies, and I believe the platform will get better as they keep building out.

Comments: I am the HR Generalist at my company and have been working with Namely for a little over a year now. While I'm not able to speak to the implementation process, I can give some feedback on the day-to-day use of the system. In the past year, I have seen Namely make tremendous product improvements. The system absolutely has it's nuances, but their customer support team is incredibly receptive and responsive to the needs of their clients. They really listen to feedback which is reflected in the product enhancements they continue to make.

The HRIS side of the product has great flexibility and is very user friendly. It has been an invaluable tool in keeping our multiple office locations connected. Employees are able to post pictures and announcements which encourages a lot of engagement. We have been able to customize according to our needs which has been so helpful in managing the information we need to capture. We also use the performance management system for our performance review process and while I can't speak to the administration of this process since I do not currently oversee it, our employees have found this process to be seamless. The payroll side of the product has a ton of reporting that is straight forward and easy to read. Payroll and benefits are administered without difficulty- our open enrollment was much more manageable with the use of their benefits portal.

As startup, we are always evolving. Thankfully, Namely's team has been there to cater to our changing needs. I would say that their customer support is their greatest asset. I don't know what I would do without our consultant and the vast amount of resources Namely provides clients!

Good experience until we used their benefit team...

Comments: Benefit implementation was extremely rocky. We had to begin our open enrollment 1 month later than expected. The benefit team (Brokers) were great! They were in constant communication with us, and assured us that everything would be taken care of. Well, we ended up losing our projected benefit plan. We then had another plan that was not well off like the one we wanted, but we needed something to give to our employees. This is where the Namely benefits team dropped the ball. Communication slowly dimished and our benefits in Namely never changed from the original to the present. To make matters worse, one of our Brokers from Namely was arrogant, unqualified, and attitude-prone. She made our relationship with Namely a terrible experience. We no longer wanted to rely on the benefits team for the mere fact that we didn't want to deal with her. Here's the best part about Namely's benefit team (sarcasm) - the unpleasant Broker had a subordinate who went into our dental carrier's website and took away one of our employees benefits! Yes, that's right! She deleted the dental benefits without speaking to us beforehand. That is extremely unprofessional. That employee ended up going to his dental provider and was denied for not having dental insurance.

Cons: Had to constantly look at the user guides. The user guides were not detailed enough. Ex. roles and permissions - too complicated.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look elsewhere. They look good and are on the cutting edge of technology, but lack the fundamentals to be a great system.

Pros: The system is very easy to use and the employees enjoy engaging with their peers. As a global organization, this aspect was very important to us.

Cons: As a newer system, there are integrations that you find with other products that Namely is still working on (i.e. auto updates between HR and payroll). Also, there is no ATS incorporated in the product.

Overall: We transitioned to Namely due to the ease of use of the system and the engagement aspect of the system. We are lucky to say....the system has not let us down. The employees really enjoying engaging with each other and posting congratulatory messages. One of the best compliments we received was during open enrollment for benefits when an employee stated it was the easiest they have ever been through at any company! There is still some work to be done in the functionality, such as a truly integrated system between HR and payroll; however, Namely is transparent about this and it is included in their roadmap which is available for review. Overall, two thumbs up!

Comments: We only used Namely for HRIS, not payroll or benefits, so perhaps my experience would have been different if everything was all tied together. In the end though, because they didn't give you a dedicated HR business partner, and the insurance rates weren't great, we switched to ADP Total Source (a PEO). My experience with Namely was ok.

Pros: The interface looks nice. The fields are customizable, although often you must get your service person to create them for your.

Cons: The customizable fields often require someone on the inside to implement for you.

Recommendations to other buyers: I would read more about those who experienced Namely with their benefits and payroll included. Ideally, the system would integrate all things together and make it super easy for employees to login, make the necessary elections or changes etc.

Easy to use everywhere!

I especially like the Namely app. It makes it easy to submit or review requests, and it has all the same features that the desktop version has to offer! Hands down, the easiest and nicest HR software I've ever used.

Comments: A couple of years ago I sat in my office after getting off the phone with our previous HR software support team. I was angry at the 72 hour turn around time and then it hit me. I don't have to put up with this. I began my journey to find a replacement HR/Payroll platform. I didn't want to be held back by so-called "turn around time" ever again. Demo after demo I battled through all the fluff of the so called superb platforms on the market, then I threw on the brakes. I stumbled on this company called Namely that looked familiar to social media that I frequent. It looked so simple, could this be the one? I signed up for the demo prepared to be disappointed by a flashy sight with no power behind it and awful customer service, but then it happened. I found the ONE. So simple, yet very powerful and the customer service was off the chart (from another planet). We took a leap and implemented Namely's HR and Payroll platform. I dreaded to hear employee feedback and was terrified to reach out to customer support. Employee feedback started to roll in, what? they actually love it and it's easy to use. I never dreamed I would receive so much positive feedback from employees, but I did and still do. Then came the day I had to contact customer support. I was blown away by the quick and courteous support I received. I was in awe. This is exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't believe it. An HR platform that employees love, HR and Payroll managers love to use, and quick and courteous support. Namely will allow us to grow To Infinity and Beyond! We love Namely!

Pros: Employees and Managers love the look, feel and ease of use. The platform is very customize able and the reporting is very powerful. From on-boarding to termination, Namely has what it takes to get the job done. Their open API is a huge plus allowing integration with almost any vendor.

Cons: The calendar could be more powerful and the file storage could use a makeover, but you can't lose with this platform. They are continuously listening to users and making improvements.

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are not happy with your current HR/Payroll platform you definitely need to give Namely a look.

Pros: I love all the integration between their HR and Payroll platforms. Namely is truly a one stop shop when it comes to an all around HR/Payroll platform.

Cons: It's hard to say anything negative about the platform. It was up and running and ready to go from the start. The customer service has been excellent. There have been mostly positive experiences so far.

Overall: From the beginning, Namely has been fast, easy, yet very powerful. This platform looks and feels like social media sites, but in the background (or under the hood) is very powerful technology that allows both employers and employees simplify their work life. For the employer there are very powerful reporting and communication tools. The benefit management, on boarding, and performance reviews are a breeze. Throw in payroll and you have an unstoppable platform that knocks out the competition. The employee enjoys the ease of being up to date with company announcements. The calendar is excellent and allows managers to make sure coverage is where it is needed at the click of the mouse. Namely eliminates all the headaches of paperwork with their benefit management and benefit partners. Namely's customer service is light-years ahead of the competition. If you haven't done it yet DEMO Namely. Your life will be changed forever!

Recommendations to other buyers: If you are having trouble choosing a software definitely view a demo. Then ask to speak with some real people who use Namely in their organization everyday and get their take on the platform.

Pros: I love how customizable Namely is.

Cons: They haven't rolled it out yet but, I'm excited to be able to report on any and every field in Namely in one report and I'm hopeful that we'll be able to do document signing for current employees one day.

Overall: We signed up for Namely in the Fall of 2014. We started with the HRIS and benefits for just flex spending. Being in HR, it was wonderful to be able to customize Namely's platform to include the data that we wanted to track and provide. For employees, it was a game changer because they now had access to information they had never had before (such as a clear salary and bonus history). In January 2015 we launched payroll with two of our smaller entities. Employees found Namely easy to log into and the paystubs were clear and easy to read. In the Fall of 2015 we added all of our benefits into Namely and did our full open enrollment. It was amazing for both employees and HR. HR loved that there was no paper to track and it was easy to see where everyone was in regard to the open enrollment process. Employees appreciated being able to log in from anywhere and how easy the system was to navigate. We also started using the Onboarding feature and it has saved employees and HR so much time. Now, employees are able to fill out all of their new hire and benefits information before their start date. We've seen the turnaround time decrease dramatically! All around, Namely has been extremely helpful for employees, HR, and payroll. And, if anyone asked, I would absolutely recommend Namely!

Not your typical Payroll software, so no more dreading the use of it!

Pros: The ease of use, customizable reports in format pdf or Excel, and it even looks appealing to work in.

Cons: I have to manually input PTO for new hires, or when someone moves to next tier of years of service. The numerous email alerts you get for any employee change request (ie: address; title change; Raise, etc...) gets annoying, yet to confirm that I sent off the payroll submission, I don't receive any.

Overall: I used to dread doing payroll, because the system we were using was not user friendly and extremely time consuming and cumbersome. Now, with Namely, I can input information into the HRIS system, and it feeds right over into Payroll; so no more double entering! Namely does not look like a typical boring old spreadsheet. The system is easy to read, with nice use of color, and some areas even customizable w/ our own graphics and pictures. It's nice to work in software with some personality. We can now onboard our new hires using Namely, which allows the new employee to fill in tedious personal information, leaving me, the administrator, only a few areas that I have to input myself. It is a definite time saver for sure! I love the fact that Namely allows us to customize reports, but sometimes I feel that this is one area that isn't as easy to figure out. Some reports can only be created by a Namely Rep, and other reports can be created by us. I can't always figure out which filters to use, or how to complete a report exactly the way I want to use it. This may be more user error, and not entirely Namely's fault. I will say that the Namely Reps/Support do come to my aid every time, and I do get the reports or answers I need rather quickly. We like the fact that employees can do open enrollment/life change events, right through Namely, which removes Human Resources from having to enter everyones selections manually ourself. Namely had a few glitches with it this last year, but part of it was also a communication problem from the Insurance Company side. Namely has been in contact with us about working on this problem throughout the year, so I'm now worried about it now. I do not dread having to go into Namely to update or enter something. I do not dread doing payroll, because if I have to fix something in an employee's profile, deductions, taxes, etc... it's only a click away, and then I can get right back to completing payroll. It's very easy! Namely really does reduce the amount of work HR has to do: 1) by allowing employees (active or termed) access to their W2's and/or changing their address 2) supervisors requesting Raises and Promotions now go through Namely and not a silly group email train 3) I said it earlier, but having Namely take care of Open Enrollment/Insurance deductions so no manual entry needed. I hope you can see that Namely is not your typical Payroll/HRIS software, but has personality, ease of use, and quality customer service!

Recommendations to other buyers: I can't say enough about the ease of use of this software. I really appreciate that!

Namely is getting better and better by the day!

Pros: Allows us to have a paperless on boarding! The team/org. charts, reporting, time off management and performance platform.

Cons: Payroll needs more work.

Overall: Hi, we've been using Namely for the past year and it's been fun implementing the system and building out our new processes within the system. There have been a couple of challenges, but I think it's because the company is still growing. I believe they are aware of the issues and are trying their best to fix them. I like that they seem to be transparent, they continuously keep us clients informed about releases and updates. They know that they must get payroll running smoothly (which is where we have the most issues). Payroll still needs work but it's not bad or a deal breaker. I'm confident that they will make payroll better within the next couple of months.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's been helpful to keep all issues that we encounter in the system in a shared spreadsheet, and go over them in a weekly call with our client manager.

Pros: The platform is very easy for employees and site admins to navigate. It's intuitive. It promotes self-service so employees can update their personal information, with an easy click they can request and their manager can approve PTO, they can easy view important company information (employee handbook, their w2, summary plan descriptions, etc). Once set up, onboarding new hires is super easy and quick and done within the Namely system. The mobile app is easy to use. We love that our distributed workforce can view their co-workers birthdays and work anniversaries and we can disseminate info via the facebook like newsfeed. It helps everyone feel more connected even though they are spread out around the country.

Cons: They are still working to auto-sync some remaining fields from the HRIS to payroll side of the platform (like EEOC/Job Category and Ethnicity info) for easy EEO-1 reporting.

Overall: Namely has been a great decision for our company that wanted to house Payroll, Benefits and HRIS under one roof. We selected them due to the ease of use of the platform for the site administrators as well as our employees and felt they would be able to meet the needs of our growing company. The service that Namely's staff has provided is great. If evaluating vendors for another company, I would choose to select and implement Namely again.

Recommendations to other buyers: I evaluated a lot of Payroll, Benefits & HRIS vendors and it was a great decision to go with Namely.

Pros: Easy to use, easy to navigate

Cons: The compensation portion could be a bit more robust in terms of tracking changes to salaries after reviews.

Overall: Our company has been using Namely for a little over a year now, and we've been very satisfied with our experience so far. Their customer service is practically unparalleled, they go above and beyond to help guide us in our usage, and interacting with their employees has been uniformly great. The system itself is robust, we are able to quickly pull many different reports with ease, run complex annual performance reviews, track our time off and much more with no hiccups. What helped us to make our decision to choose Namely was how simple it was for our employees to use it, it's a modern design and if you can navigate Facebook, you can certainly navigate Namely. I definitely recommend Namely to any small to medium business, it's been a wonderful experience!

Recommendations to other buyers: As a tech organization, our employees have high standards for how systems should work, from our executive team down, there has been great satisfaction from what it's enabled us to achieve.

Pros: One stop solution. Web-based. Simple and clean design.

Cons: Wish we had a little more control over naming some of the tabs and folders.

Overall: We found Namely after scouring the market for a solution that was simple, connected, available 24/7, and offered one attractive place for us to do People work the way we want to do it. We found Namely and have been pleasantly surprised at every stage. First, we added the HR solution. We jumped at the chance to try the Onboarding and eSignature features. We have just decided to implement Payroll and Benefits.

We love the Namely team! They are by far the most responsive and helpful people we work with. The online HELP tool means we get answers quickly.

Features get updated regularly and Namely really listens to we users when we ask for new features / changes to the software.

I love Backstage Pass where I can connect with other Namely users and get tips.

We use Namely for so many thing that used to require separate and manual solutions (org charts, employee photos, performance reviews, multi-tiered goals, news feed, calendar, etc.).

There is a bit of a learning curve for employees who expect things to be complex and cumbersome based on past experience with ADP and other vendors. When they see how simple Namely is, they are shocked. It's fun to see their lightbulb moments and hear "that's all I had to do?".

;-)

Recommendations to other buyers: Dive in. While it may seem easier to implement one module at a time, I wish we'd done it all at once.

Comments: Namely has been great for our People Ops team and employee base. We tried out a much larger HRIS that really didn't fit our company's needs. We were able to get Namely up and running pretty quickly and it's been very easy to use for our employees and administrators. It's definitely a great tool for companies looking to upgrade to an entry level HRIS.

Pros: Ease of Use Value for cost Clean user interface

Cons: Workflow - needs more customization/logic options Need Org Chart customization Reporting queries could be better Need sandbox option

Recommendations to other buyers: Great entry level HRIS for small to mid-size companies. For bigger/public companies, it may be difficult to use as Namely is still growing and working on adding features.

Cons: TImesheets have very little function and the sync function adds extra steps that was not expected when we saw a demonstration.

We use both their HRIS and Payroll systems and have had great experiences with both. The UI is great, but my favorite thing about being a Namely customer is the support and assistance that I receive from my benefits team.

Comments: Within the first day of being introduce to the Namely team that works close with GROUP PMX it has been nothing but a great experience for me. Our Consultants Hydee Kivowitz, Greg Autouri & Mallory Buscemi are always willing to guide us. GROUP PMX is currently a company of 50 employees, but Namely never makes us feel like we do not matter. I find the whole HRIS system very user friendly. The Learning Center is so helpful. My favorite thing is the templates you can build. Onboarding never has to be old fashion again. "NO MORE PAPER"!! So whether you are a big company or a small company you will be in the right hands with Namely.

Pros: User Friendly, Realtime Answers

Cons: I have no cons love the system

Comments: We transferred HRIS from Zenefits to Namely and we couldn't be happier. From the beginning, the implementation managers were concise, responsive and thorough in setting expectations, providing a clear roadmap and answering all questions. Our Account Manager has exceeded all expectations with his detailed knowledge of all of Namely's products, acute attention to detail, responsiveness and awesome personality.

Namely's product fits our company of 84 (we were 54 when we made the transition). Their on-boarding feature is so customizable and user friendly, we were able to consolidate our on-boarding process and automate a lot of moving pieces. We have launched performance reviews and employee engagement surveys using the performance tools and are big fans of the process and capabilities. Namely's performance tool has the capability of pulling established goals into each performance review which makes it extremely easy to track performance and goal attainment.

The reporting feature is awesome because we can go in and run any type of report we need to where as in Zenefits, not all of the data was readily available to run a self report, it was funneled through the account manager.

We use a variety of Namely's products but we are most impressed with the level of communication Namely provides. From our Account Manager to Namely's Product team, the communication is constant. It is obvious the internal communication within Namely is very positive and fluent - our Account Manager asks for feedback on features and it is clear the feedback is relayed to the Product and Eng teams.

Overall, we made the right decision to transition and are extremely happy with this service/product.

Overall: I am extremely impressed with the ease of using the Namely HRIS. I have worked with several different HR systems over the years and they all have a very archaic user interface and typically do not integrate well with other systems. Namely HR/Payroll/Benefits are completely integrated and all have the same look and feel, so they are extremely easy to use.

The Namely support staff are also extremely responsive and knowledgable. Again, a nice change from the competition :-)

Cons: We just launched Namely recently, any pain points I have at this time are more from still learning how to use certain things in the platform (more of the management settings).

Overall: Our company just switched to Namely recently from another HRIS system and our team absolutely loves it. The platform makes it very easy to engage with your team and also keep and share information. The benefits team has been incredibly helpful with choosing affordable benefits that would be the right fit for our company.

Recommendations to other buyers: This is a great, easy to use platform. If you are needing something that will help engage your staff, this is it!

Comments: As is typical in a small tech startup, I wear many hats. My full time job is as Sales Operations Manager, but I took HR over when our HR Director left. Namely has been an invaluable tool that has allowed us to effectively manage our HR department with half a resource. It's great to have all of the information housed in the same portal and the customer support team has been fantastic.

Pros: -Great to have all information/documents housed in the same portal -Outstanding Customer Service -Processing Payroll is quick and easy -Onboarding portal makes it simple to onboard new employees

Cons: -can be confusing deciphering between the two portals (Namely and Payroll), to determine where information is housed and must be changed.

Recommendations to other buyers: -Make sure you determine what your level of support is before making a decision. Small companies just starting may want to consider a PEO which offers FULL support and guidance to companies who don't have any experience in HR, but aren't big enough to hire someone full time. On the other hand, Namely is great if you have a basic understanding of HR processes, and the laws that govern HR/Payroll (ie I-9 documentation); since they don't provide that level of support.

Comments: This is a great "client facing" app, it's great for employees to use as an on-the-go directory, and to access PTO requests. I wish they'd release an Admin app as well to help us HR Admins out there.

Pros: - Easy to use - Slick UX

Cons: - Not a real con but lacking admin abilities

Recommendations to other buyers: Regardless of the app, switching to Namely as an HRIS will make you a very happy HR Professional. The app is an added bonus that allows the employees access basic information.

Pros: The best thing about Namely is their affordable pricing, and the ease of use. Creating new hire profiles, running reports, and entering time off is super easy. It's a great product for small startups looking for an all inclusive HRIS, benefits tool and payroll solution. Overall, customer service and implementation team are pretty good and reliable.

Cons: Some parts of the tool are not intuitive. Data importing is far more complicated than it should be. Also, some things like org charts are not in the most intuitive format. Small complaints, and likely things that will be addressed in late updates.

Recommendations to other buyers: Think of how you plan to scale. How much will you grow in the next year or two or three. Do you plan to use benefits and payroll, or just performance reviews and HRIS. I would think long term when vetting Namely, and see how this will scale with your company.
