Pros

Proliant was the best decision for our organization in 2014 because they were by far the industry leader in understanding the Affordable Care Act.
The whole team has been a pleasure to work with. They made implementing the software super easy and even when I have minor changes to settings they are more than willing to accomodate.
The software is user friendly for the most part and has a lot of great features such as Time and Labor, PTO tracking, Performance Management, Benefits Administration etc.

Pros

The implementation team was great when we were getting this started as they were very helpful and answered all of our questions.
This product was recommended by our CPA who uses it for his own office. That recommendation was good enough for us and it has proven to be an invaluable asset to our business.
Great service, great app, great website. User friendly, leaves me with no questions after checking my breakdowns every pay period.

Cons

The customer service provided was always terrible, so much so that we had several phone calls with upper management because of the poor treatment that we received.
The functionality between Proliant and their Time and Labor system is terrible.
The worst thing about Proliant is its software.

Cons

I never criticize publicly about an organization but this one was so very unprofessional and even made worse by the outrageous fees they charge.
It can be a problem to login to the work site which is frustrating when trying to clock in or clock out on time.
Just about everything else. Its not user-friendly, its customer service is terrible and we get so many complaints for employees, as the admin I have limited resources to help.
