Pros

The customer service level provided is excellent and very responsive, I couldn't have asked for a better Technical Lead than who we have.

DS

Deanna S.

We haven't used CompensationXL to its fullest capability probably but whenever I called with challenges or issues, my reps were responsive, helpful and supported me in getting the job done.

MT

Marsha T.

We were able to customize the reporting so our award approval process is very quick to complete. In addition, the customer service received from our account rep was always very timely and informative.

KS

Kathy S.

Pros

I am very pleased and happy because the excellent support which comes with the program.

JW

Joerg W.

I love how easy the site is to use & how helpful customer support is. Those 2 things are very important to us.

JK

John K.

At the time my client liked the affordability of the software. Costs for self service payroll is very affordable which is great for small business.

FT

Frank T.

Cons

The obvious worst part about CompXL is the user interface, which is.

RA

Rebekah A.

The most obnoxious part is the uploading of employee data since I generally have many small, one-off adjustments to make that add up. You have to import it instead of tweaking it within the system.

RA

Rebekah A.

My only complaint is that the software runs slowly when using the online version of the workbook and when refreshing pages/moving between pages in the application.

KS

Kathy S.

Cons

All our employees are not eligible for the same time off accrual, and the inability to change individual time-off/holiday settings was initially quite frustrating.

SM

Sierra M.

The set up was awful and Patriot left me on an island and did not finalize anything and failed to file any state reports.

DB

David B.

I lost my payroll person when covid hit. I was stressed about this because finding anyone to take on more business when lockdown happened wasn't going to happen.
