Most positive review

 We're loving it!

We began our search for an HRIS in May of 2015 and ended up going with Namely in Sept 2015. We are loving our decision and have since expanded our product options from just the HRIS to include payroll, benefits administration and performance management. This is HUGE for us as our internal team ...

Most critical review

 Simple enough and gets the job done.

Can't think of any major criticisms for what we use it for. We use Namely predominately as a way of clocking in and out for work days, as well as for scheduling and and submitting annual performance reviews. It's simple enough, and allows our Payroll managers to make amendments as needed with ...

Namely is so easy to use for HR duties

28/02/2017

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.

Needs a lot of work

17/02/2017

They are the new company and I believe that they have a lot of tweaks they need to make to the system to make it functional. If you need it for only a few employees, then it might be alright. It is not good for a medium to large size company.

Cons

Payroll and HR sides are separate and do not communicate with each other. A LOT of double work! Not Cheap

Namely at ZirMed

01/02/2017

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.

Pros

Seamless integration; very easy to use; contains PTO, pay; annual review, and other information all in one place.

Cons

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

Great Software

27/01/2017

I really like this system and it would have been great for the social aspect of it. Our company is pretty small and we wouldn't have needed the payroll or benefits administration. We found it to be easy to use, and a big help with the onboarding process.

Innovative HR Software

27/01/2017

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.

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.

Fantastic HR Tool

19/01/2017

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.

Great for Onboarding - we've gone 99% paperless. Namely is always adding new features. I'd like to see it be a little better for employee self-service, but we're getting there!
