We use Namely. It is working OK and fits all our needs. We are using it for payroll as well. We are engaged with the company to make the product better. Some of the processes could be streamlined, but overall, it is light-years ahead of any product that is currently on the market.

When we started, Zenefits didn’t have payroll, so we had to use Gusto. They have great onboarding, a wonderful UI, and it’s great when you’re a small company. But for us, at our stage, we’re really looking to consolidate, so we’re moving payroll to Namely. Once you get to a similar 50+ employee size, Namely is probably a better fit.

We started with Zenefits from day one. Zenefits is especially great for early stage companies, but once you reach about 50 employees, you’ll need something more. But, until you reach 50 employees, Zenefits is spot-on. It’s free, or they only charge you a very small amount to get set up. It’s easy to on-board, and everything is all in one place. Before you have an HR person, you need something as automated as possible, and Zenefits is great for that. But we’re switching to Namely now. It’s less known than Zenefits, but has actually been around longer. It’s a bigger company, and better suited for companies with 50-100+ employees. We’re switching to them now because they give you dedicated account managers, along with a more robust system. With Namely, there’s a $4,000 setup fee, so there’s no chance, and no reason, you’d use them when your company is just 2 people. But now that we are a bigger company and cost is not the main concern, we need things to just work, without bugs, and Namely fits the bill for us.

We're currently using TriNet, but we’ve also been looking to possibly switch to a Matrix Partners sister portfolio company called Namely. We’ve looked at them before, and they seem to have a cool system with managing employee information like date of birth, etc. We (correctly) have all of that information stored in TriNet right now, but it’s not a great solution because their interface is so bad! Our head of talent wants to switch to a sleeker HR system, so we will eventually switch to something new, but for now, we use TriNet for everything HR-related.

We just switched over to Namely from ADP. It's got a really nice user interface. We still have ADP as well, which is horrible, but Namely is a great solution for bringing everyone together. Because the interface is so simple, everyone can handle their own needs, like vacation time, without needing to funnel it to someone.

Namely is great for reviews and PTO tracking.
