Switching HR systems is a big decision. That’s why we’ve answered the top questions we hear from our potential clients.
It’s easier than you might think. We’ve helped almost 1,000 companies implement Namely successfully. Whether you’re switching from a legacy system, moving off a point solution, or leaving a PEO, implementation typically takes 8-12 weeks, and our specialists will guide you through each step of the process. Our clients’ advice? Don’t wait. As your company grows, implementation only becomes more complex.
Namely serves mid-sized companies—ranging from 15 employees up to a few thousand—in just about every industry and every state nationwide. We love mid-sized companies because you’re mission-driven, client-obsessed, and you care deeply about your employees. Just like us. So whether you’re a one-person HR team in need of a helping hand (hello, Managed Services) or a larger team looking for a platform everyone loves (from your benefits specialist to your CFO), we’ve got you covered.
Our belief is that great companies are built on a great employee experience. That’s why we created the first HR platform employees love to use. If you’re on a PEO or a legacy system, your people don’t have modern technology that empowers them to do their best work. In fact, they probably aren’t logging in at all. Namely changes all that. 75% of our clients say Namely has increased employee engagement, and 72% say Namely has made its employees more productive.
Most do! 78% of employees log in to Namely at least once per month. Namely shares its look and feel with the popular social networks your employees already use, so they can get started right away. And because employees can request PTO, appreciate peers, review their pay-stubs, and more, they spend just as much time on Namely as they do on Twitter or LinkedIn. It’s a dream come true for those who never thought they’d hear “self-serve” and “HR” in the same sentence.
About 11 hours per week, if you’re like our average client. That’s the power of all-in-one: we give you back the hours you used to spend keeping HR, payroll, and benefits in sync. Plus, Namely allows employees to answer their own HR questions before they even think to ask you, and it gives your leadership team direct access to the data they need. With Namely, HR stops being the complaint department. You get to focus on strategy, culture, and all the other important things you’ve been meaning to tackle.
That’s not customer support in our eyes. A true HR partner combines great technology with real people that care about making you successful. With Namely, you’ll have a dedicated Support Consultant to answer your burning questions and even to offer helpful tips and tricks. Plus, we have an amazing (and amazingly active) client community, so you’ll gain direct access to peers who can share their best practices. We strive to make you look like a hero, and no hero waits around on hold.
With Namely, you’ll never worry about upgrades again. Our software is cloud-based and built on a modern technology stack. As a result, there’s only one version of Namely, and we’re constantly releasing enhancements and features to make it better and better. The best part: you don’t need to do a thing. No upgrades, no upcharges, no nothing. You’re always using the latest and greatest.
Namely handles most of your core HR needs: HRIS, payroll, time, benefits, and talent management, too. But we know you likely use a few more systems to manage your employees, which is why we offer pre-built integrations with an ever-growing roster of partners. Whether you need to plug-in your ATS, LMS, ERP, or a system with more than three letters, there’s a good chance we have an integration. If you don’t see what you need, you can also build your own integration through our secure API. We’re a truly open HR platform.
We’ve got a few things you could try. You could talk about how you’ll finally have time drive the strategic initiatives your boss really cares about. Or if she’s a numbers person, you could mention how 91% of clients report that Namely makes it easier to manage and access employee data. Is she a big picture thinker? 77% of clients say Namely has helped their organization grow. That’s because Namely helps you make employees happier and more productive. So if your boss believes people drive the bottom line, there’s a good chance she’ll see the ROI.
Now. No, seriously. We have a whole blog post full of reasons why January 1 is the best time to go-live with a new HR platform. The biggest reason is that implementation is much easier because you won’t need to import historical data and payroll taxes into Namely. To go live on January 1, you need to sign up during October. Which means, if you haven’t started your evaluation, you really should request your free demo right now.
