    Pros
    Namely is the perfect solution for a small business like ours. It has saved me so much time compared to the previous solution we used for HR and payroll.
    For the most part, it is very intuitive and user friendly. Being user friendly makes it easy for me as the admin but more importantly it makes it easy for my employees to navigate.
    Friendly support staff, easy to get set-up, many self-service tools and customizations and always improving. I am very happy with Namely.
    Cons
    You can never get an support, answers, or solutions to urgent issues such as Namely back end payroll system errors. Errors that cost the company thousand of dollars.
    I dislike that I keep having problems in logging into it.
    I just think their customer service format changes frequently and it is confusing sometimes to keep up with their preferred communication etiquette.

    Pros

    It is a very convenient system to make the HRM more easy & effective. It helps to manage the system remotely & sync all the information instantly. The software is very easy to implement & has a great User interface.

    Cons

    The software is already a great build but sometimes it becomes clumsy to manage all the data at once.

    Namely Review

    Reviewed 3 months ago

    Namely HRIS, Payroll and Benefits have made such a difference. Easy to setup and use. Have worked with multiple payroll systems for over 40 years and Namely (by far) is the best and user friendly.

    Pros

    We love the Onboarding, it has saved us so much time. On employee's first day, 99% is done. That's amazing.

    Cons

    Con is that not all of Namely HRIS info carries over to Namely Time.

    Vendor response

    Payroll Management Software, marketed as total HR management

    Reviewed 16 days ago

    We initially chose Namely in order to outsource / automate more of our total HR management and Namely had positioned themselves as total HR management. While the payroll onboarding, setup and execution was relatively easy, it was quite painful to set up and distribute HR policies or get any substantive value from the additional HR consulting that we had paid for. At the end, when we realized that some of our state quarterly taxes had not been properly filed or submitted, we chose a different platform.

    Pros

    Payroll setup and management was simple to setup and run for each pay period.

    Cons

    The service was not reliable for tax preparation, and failed to submit our state taxes in some states.

    Great HRIS and Payroll system with many customizable features

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    I and a Namely advocate, I was instrumental in recommending and seeting them up for my business. I just think their customer service format changes frequently and it is confusing sometimes to keep up with their preferred communication etiquette.

    Pros

    We have a ver detailed and multi step performance review process, Namely allowe dus to build the ratings and concepts for our processes. The abilit ti assign multiplie review writers, the steps of approval and the reminders are all key in our operations.

    Cons

    Our account contacts and the way we communicate has changed at least 3 times in the past year. Sometimes i feel like there is a push to work with customer service only in their prefered way, if you send an e-mail instead of a case or if you mark something urgent that they don't think is urgent.

    Vendor response

    Thank you for your review! We really appreciate your feedback and are happy to hear that you find our platform to be super customizable, especially when it comes to performance reviews. As for customer support, we truly apologize for your experience. We are confident that our new Pod Service Model and the Namely Help Community will enhance clients' overall experiences going forward.
