Pros

User friendly, awesome customer service and true to their word. We do not have the web time feature but love how everything else operates.
I love the ease of entering employee information into the system. Paylocity allows both the employer and employee to view their benefit information and payroll information quickly.
It is safe and manageable, this app is good for payment too it has nice features of it.

Pros

The phone app is good and will become even better. Benefits secured by Employment Hero are great and will be rolled out through several different programs in our business.
Easy to use, staff can have app on their phone which is brilliant. Great technical support service upon implementation, prompt responses and very helpful.
Hero shop gives us as small employers the same advantage as big business we can entice top employees to stay because they have the same benefits and discounts from the platform.

Cons

The software is not as flexible as Paylocity would have you believe. We faced many struggles throughout our implementation and have still been struggling with policies 7 mos into our time with them.
There are still functions on the software that I am not utilizing because I never received follow up calls. I came from Quickbooks and it's difficult to reprint a lost check.
There seems to be disconnection between the separate systems, Web Pay, Web Time, Web Benefits, ACA that create a lot of headache, too many errors, and lots of frustration.

Cons

There is no proper instructions on how to use it so there is no way you will be able to figure it out. Half the instructions they do have are wrong or outdated.
This has cost our company hugely in money and time to trouble shoot the constant issues and glitches, it would have been far easier and cheaper to do it manually.
Integration with payroll is still a little clunky - Admin/owner have duplicate file, ended employees show as errors. Payslips do not show annual leave balances.
