What is Paylocity?

Our all-in-one software platform gives HR pros a way to easily manage daily tasks in payroll, benefits, talent, and workforce management. But what makes us different is that our technology is backed by a culture that truly cares about our clients’ success. Providers will merely sell you a product. But a partner actually cares about you and your business. A partner takes the time to get to know you and understand your needs. We work with you to identify the best solutions that will benefit your business today, while paving the way to a better tomorrow. And tomorrow is all about your team. Let's go forward together.

Decent but customer service lacks

Likeliness to Recommend

7 /10

What differentiates Paylocity from other similar products?

The variety of modules within Paylocity make it a nice "one stop shop". In theory having one system for Payroll and HRIS is good, but in practicality there are many hiccups we run into. The single sign on has been great for our employees as well.

The variety of modules within Paylocity make it a nice "one stop shop".

What do you dislike most about this product?

The modules do not all talk to one another, there are silos within the system, this is a barrier. The customer service is also not stellar. Additionally, customizations for fields are difficult and cumbersome or non-existent.

Make sure to have a variety of individuals at the table when making the decision whether or not to purchase. HR, IT, Accounting, Learning and Development, Etc.
