Solutions are available for small and medium-sized businesses, large enterprises, and nonprofit organizations.

Paycor allows users to create recurring employee schedules, control labor distribution and costs, and manage any exceptions, such as unapproved time cards and overtime alerts. Multiple time tracking methods are supported, including biometric readers, badge terminals, web browser time clocks, and mobile punching from employees’ smartphones. Employees can also view their schedules and request time off from their phone or web browser, and managers are given access to vacation and sick leave balances when approving requests.

Employees can login to update their contact, tax, and direct deposit details, with administrators notified automatically. The HR and benefits administration solution enables online open enrollment or a range of employee benefits, performance review management, and company document sharing, and also includes a library of HR document templates.

Paycor's a vital element for the efficient management of human talent from the web

The organization has optimized from the work per hour required in reality, as the development of data that allow you to optimize the preparation of the payroll and therefore the accounting and finance of the company. In addition to the Paycor applicant tracking system, the company has been able to optimize its recruitment and selection of qualified personnel.

Pros

The software is very useful because its integrated tools provide me with a virtual environment to manage from its graphical interface the assistance of the staff, as their time of stay in the premises, in addition the graphics tool allows me to generate basic inputs for the construction of the reports that the other instances of the organization require in terms of the need for personnel and the preparation of the payroll. It is very good because it is also compatible with several operating systems such as Mac OS, independent operating system, Windows 8.

Cons

The difficulty has been in reaching the precision levels of automating the tracking of employee hours based on their actual work hours in the company and although administrators can configure workflows and distribute permissions to several users according to the roles, his workstation is cumbersome at the system level to translate all those variations of the programming that the tool has with reality.

Stuck with disappointment

Reviewed on 24/06/2020

I am very torn. I do like the system and feel like there are a lot of functions to take advantage of, however because the customer service is so poor I can not get help to utilize them to the full extent. Also I am disgusted by their billing department, I don't understand why I cannot get answers on what I am expected to pay for and why it changes each week.

I honestly want to look for something different, but I feel stuck since we just went through the transfer last year. I have 150 employees and I don't want to put them through another change so quickly. I would change if I could and I would not recommend this to anyone.

This is my last hope to try to get someone's attention, 4 months ago I expressed all my frustration with the sales people and was hopeful for some change, but nothing has changed.

Pros

I really like the payroll function of the software, it is very easy to set up and run payroll. Also the user side of things is very simple and available in Spanish.

Cons

Billing is inconsistent and uninformative, you ask questions and cannot get a direct or clear answer, I think it is very fair to be asking what I am paying for. Which then leads to the other worst function for this company which is customer service, I have been working on a billing question about delivery fees for over a month now, I have now had to ask 3 different people which include the sales people that sold me on Paycor.

I have been working on getting a user simple access to review our time cards and it is taking 3 weeks now. I called the support team, they told me it was fixed (it was not). I then created a case number by reaching out to through their support email, a week later I had to follow up with another phone call and they told me they had not even started working on this, so I had to sit on the phone for an hour while they worked on it.

Software is nice but beware....

Frustrating. Implementation was pretty much us holding their hands.

Frustrating. Implementation was pretty much us holding their hands.

Pros

The software is intuitive and easy to use. Payroll processsing is (usually) a breeze.

Cons

Support is non-existent. We have had issues starting with implementation. The implementation team did not understand what we wanted and didn't set up the system properly. There were times when they did not even understand their software and how it worked (accruals). We have had 9 months of issues with payroll tax filings with Paycor.

Response from Paycor

Hi Tim - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. I just wanted to let you know that we value your insights and I have shared them with the team to help us improve.

Mostly positive experience with NimbleSchedule

Reviewed on 15/10/2015

Pros

In general, I am very happy with this product as the person putting together the schedules!
It is easy to see when requests are put in, and it is nice that our nurses can easily pick up shifts and we do not have to deal as much with filling in open shifts.
It is very helpful that we cannot double book an employee - I'm sure that has saved me countless times.
I have had a good experience with Nimble for the most part.

Cons

Occasionally when our employees look at the month view of their schedule, the program switches days and patient accounts. This is the biggest flaw we have encountered.
It is also sometimes a pain to enter shift times, though that is becoming less of a hassle as I am becoming more comfortable with the program.
On holidays, it is great that they are all entered so we cannot forget what day the holidays are, but I have found that the system also blocks out all employees as "unavailable" on every holiday. This has caused some confusion and made those days a little bit harder to deal with.
I have also noticed that it is possible to double book a shift - something that we have to watch for closely but it is also helpful when we are setting up mentor shifts where we actually intentionally double book!
One last thing - it is hard (depending on account label colors) to print visible calendars.

Enjoy using, and think it's a great tool to have all of your employee-related information right at your finger tips.

Pros

Im an employee, not an admin for this software, but it works well for me. I'm able to very easily see all of my pay history going back years, and I'm able to manage employee time cards and requests easily. I also like the benefits enrollment tools.

Cons

It's a little challenging finding employee PTO requests if you dont access them through the notification emails. Takes 4 or 5 clicks to find that area. But other than that, no complaints.

Response from Paycor

Hi Michael - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback! It's great to hear that benefits enrollment is easy! Have a great day!
