SimplyMerit Feature Reviews

Elisabeth T.

A good product that will become really great with a little time and maturity

2020-07-22

Overall, we were very pleased with the product and intend to use it again

Pros

The ability to import the merit starting salary and the bonus starting salary as two different numbers was very useful.

Cons

Inability to make changes to individual employees without having to do an import. The initial setup was more challenging than originally thought when purchasing the product.

SimplyMerit is end user friendly.

2020-07-23

Changes can be uploaded in mass, saving time and lowering the chance of data entry error.

Pros

What I like most about SimplyMerit is how user friendly it is for the managers in our association. Features are presented in a logical and intuitive way for the end user. This allows the manager to think more about the reasons behind the suggested increase than about the technicality of how to enter it. It keeps the manager focused on the important parts of the decision.

Cons

There is room for improvement in the reports generated by the system.

What are you waiting for?

2019-07-19

Pros

It's a better tool than those included in the big HCM platforms and it's much easier for everyone to use.

Cons

My only concern is that the reporting wasn't flexible enough for my funky organization structure.

Great CMS platform

2020-07-22

Pros

Very user friendly and when I did have any issues I was able to call in and get an answer right away. Customized files depending on your HRIS platform made the implementation process a breeze.

Cons

But this is just nit-picking and can be easily solved by explaining to our employees what the titles mean.

Great product

2020-07-29

Sent out to a hundred managers without training and all were able to use without an issue.

Pros

Very well designed with clean interface.

Cons

Lack of customization limits you to use the product as it is designed. Most things are there but would be nice to have a little more flexibility

SimplyMerit - great value for small businesses

2020-07-28

They were quick to address all of my questions and/or concerns and invested time walking me through how to do something within the app, problem-solving if data didn't reconcile or custom building a solution that worked for my business.

Pros

I also liked the customizable compensation letters.

Cons

I found making changes to the data to be a bit labor intensive in that you have to upload an excel worksheet each time you find an error or just need to refresh the information.

Easy and quick implementation

2020-07-29

Overall, my experience was positive. The process of implementing the system didn't take long at all. Our managers picked up on the process quickly and there was very little support needed from administrators.

Pros

Once all merit/promotion decisions were completed, we were able to create a simple download file to import into our accounting system.

Cons

We were able to build out for some of our exceptions, but not all. We were not able to build an automated step process in for our attorneys, they had to be moved to the next step by changing the merit percentage. It wasn't a hard process, but it was something that was done by HR before the process was sent to managers for approval.

Effective and Efficient Tool for Compensation Management

2020-07-29

This past cycle was our first process with SimplyMerit and overall, all users were extremely satisfied.

Pros

During the buying phase, a key component for us was customer service and the team from SimplyMerit completely blew us away even before we agreed to sign.

Cons

As we enhance our process and look to utilize the tool, I would like to see the functionality enhance for compensation letters.

Incredibly helpful software, focused on customer needs

2019-09-30

Pros

The approving managers liked the simple functionality; they were able to easily access, review, and approve merit recommendations for their team.

Cons

Initially there wasn't a section for equity grants, just base and bonus. They're so flexible and forward-thinking, they're already working on building this, so we'll be able to use it for next year's process.

Great Merit Planning Tool

2019-06-14

Overall I have had a great experience and would recommend it over other tools I have used for its ease of use .

Pros

I like how easy it is to set up and edit with the side navigation panel.

The budget planning would be more helpful with a choice of dollar and/or %

2020 Merit Increases

2020-07-24

Overall the tool was such a time saver.

Pros

Painless to load information into the tool. Extremely easy to navigate the tool as a manager to adjust merits amounts, review seeded metrics, and approve.

Cons

Not having delegates able to approve for executives was a bit of a challenge. Managers not being able to sign in due to email addresses with upper case alphabets was also a thorn.

Quick to Configure

2020-10-30

Overall we are extremely happy with Simply Merit. The customer support has been outstanding. Whenever we had a question or issue it was addressed immediately. Also, the team listens to customer needs and shares their development plan and updates.

Pros

The system is very easy to configure in short period of time.

Cons

Like any product there is always something you wish it could do. In our case it was around assigning delegates and the way we handle our internal annual bonus process. It has not negatively impacted how we use the system.

More visibility for managers

2020-10-30

Pros

We use Namely for our HRIS/Payroll and SimplyMerit works perfectly with that, so it made HR's job easier than the manual process we had before.

Cons

Overall the software is great, so no complaints.
