Nextek's Review of Optimum Solutions

2012-04-16

Our company has been using Optimum since 2007. Optimum is a great cost effective tool which has allowed us to continue generating payroll in house. They are always open to suggestions on how to improve current features as well as suggest new ones. The support staff is knowledgeable and eager to help. They have great implementation teams that walk you through every step of the system set-up. I highly recommend Optimum Solutions software for all your Payroll or Human Resources needs.

Pros

HR, Payroll, and Time and Attendance are fully integrated.

Cons

Not all the reports have sort functions and some have limted sort functions.

This software has cut a lot of time and human error in our processing

2016-03-14

Also don't like that if an earning code is not attached to someone, but we import that earning for that person it will pay them based off the rate from the pay screen.

Optimum Solutions Payroll

2015-01-27

The only thing I don't like about it is that when you go to change something technical you will probably have to change things in several different place so I usually have to call support to make sure I haven't forgotten something, but the everyday running payroll and working with employees is very straight forward.
