Meets our needs

2019-01-31

It meets our needs for a sign in/out board and tracking vacation or reports so employees can book and view time off with ease.

Pros

It's incredibly intuitive to use particularly for the administrator who needs to navigate a more deeper into the program for reports and set up.

Cons

It's supposed to be a trusted reliable support for employee data.

Natalie Gossett

Great experience, helped take our time off tracking from a manual to an automated process.

2017-12-11

Saved time, improved accuracy, gave managers and employees complete, real-time visibility into their time off.

Pros

We were using a very manual and often inaccurate method for tracking our employee time off. Since getting Time Off Manager, we have been able to make this process much more accurate and efficient for both the managers and the employees.

The calendar feature is what help our employees in the field the most.

Pros

Easy to use for both employees and administrator.

Cons

Each year each employee can roll over 40hrs of time not taken but there are some exceptions to this rule and I would like to add this before the system rolls over.

Purely makes HR work easier

2019-10-03

It has made our time tracking process a breeze. Employees can now log in and see how much time off they have available and request time off easily.

Pros

I like that it is easy to use and all of the employees can access it easily, it came with great instructions so everyone is able to do what they need to do.

Cons

A new report that would just show how one employees time has been used would be helpful.

PurelyHR Review

2019-01-29

It was a transparent way to let employees know their PTO balances and Managers to track schedules/PTO usages.

Pros

It was easy to sign up for the software, employees understood how to request PTO, managers and employees like to view their PTO balances.

Cons

I didn't fully understand how the calendar year renewed so I spent a lot of time trying to research how to correct employee PTO balances.

Great System

2019-01-25

No more chasing of papers, following up on requests. Approval by the manager is immediately accessible for payroll. Great to be able to see at a glance who is in/out of the office. Has been a key component in implementing our 'work from remote' program.

Pros

Ease of use for employees, very friendly interface.

Cons

Set up can be a bit confusing, still not sure we have everything set up quite right. Managers were a bit reluctant initially (but came on board once they realized the visibility the system gives them).

Can do a lot for you

2019-01-23

When employees and/or mangers remember to put the time off - sick, appt. etc vs just vacation it makes payroll so much easier.

Pros

All the information for employee time off are available in one site, one calendar and to all managers, other employees if you choose.

Cons

Sometimes a bit of a game moving between screens and adding time off types etc Don't like having to type out "delete" to verify the I want to delete a terminated employee

Upon implementation, the employee feedback was glowing and enthusiastic.

Pros

Audit trails allow for easy and complete research of employee leave behaviors.

Cons

Ability to establish multiple tiers of approval would be nice. Not able to build a custom calendar (different number of days per week or hours per day during different parts of the year)

Big Help with Managing Employee Time And Vacation

2019-01-29

It's very user friendly and I like that I don't have to manually keep track of hours/days off for each employee.

Pros

I like how I just get an email for employee time off and the system tracks their time, I don't have to do it manually.

Cons

To my knowledge, there's not a way for salary employees to check in early or late.

We were able to get rid of paper approvals & able to easily track who is out of the office.

Pros

Setting up new employees is easy & intuitive.

Cons

Setting up a new user's vacation time on an accrual basis (instead of all up front) has been difficult/confusing

Good for what it does, would have preferred consolidated solution

2019-12-09

We did a survey of available tools and found that PurelyHR suited our needs and was easy for us as well as our employees to use.

Pros

PurelyHR has a simple interface and is easy to use, both in terms of administration and end user input.

Cons

We only use it for time sheet and vacation purposes, so it doesn't seem worth the expense or compliance overhead of using yet another vendor.

Incredible customization options and world class customer service!

2017-12-05

Our employees are able to easily submit and track their time off; Managers are quickly able to assess their team's availability and time-off balances.

Pros

The ease with which we can customize our (sometimes) unorthodox time-off requests is unparalleled.

Cons

It would be great to see PurelyHR develop a "simple" view that has customizable rows for different "Projects" (or, grants).
