Massive payroll data through data upload

5 4 years ago

Comments: The most common problerma I could solve using this software refers to solid reporting functions. These functions improve auditability for information and make actionable decisions within the company.

Pros:

One thing I love is that I can automate complex calculations, as well as past, present and future tax changes, which helps me to reduce the risk of compliance issues.

Cons:

So far I could get a handicap or negative aspect of Synchr that is meaningful, however I could say that is not aimed at small businesses and maybe that detracts functionality.

Excellent HRIS System w/Great support

4 10 months ago

Comments: Excellent support staff with effective and prompt solutions.

Pros:

We were able to streamline our multiple FEIN operating companies under a single source of reporting and payroll for our entire corporate umbrella. All reporting is now in one location.

Cons:

Lack of consolidated and aggregated reporting for multiple FEINS that are shared under the primary corporate account and umbrella.

Has a Long Way To Go!

2 5 years ago

Comments: SyncHR was sold to us with the promise of lots of bells and whistles. What we received was a system without any basic features that are necessary for an HR department to function. Simple things such as adjusted service date, historical benefits data, getting basic reports are simply missing or do not function well. As a result, we need to keep a back-up spreadsheet (luckily we are small enough) to make sure SyncHR doesn't delete vital information. They nickel and dime you for reports, updates, changes, etc. I do not recommend this system.

Pros:

The employee access and user interface works well and employees like it.

Cons:

Reports are inaccurate or unusable, basis features are missing, deletes important historical information when updating to a new year, EDI feeds often don't work. Lots of time spent troubleshooting with their customer service. And often they charge for that!

A Great HCM Solution

5 4 years ago

Comments: SyncHR's leadership team is very engaged with each client during implementation and thereafter. We've found their team to be responsive and willing to spend the extra time with us to ensure our satisfaction.

Pros:

The things I like most about SyncHR include: 1) Position Control – SyncHR is the only solution to have true position control. As a large, dynamic 1,200+ employee organization, we track actual headcount and budgeted payroll expense versus actual labor dollars. SyncHR doesn’t lose track of the position and the dollars associated with it when someone terminates or moves to a different position – and you can view organization charts in the past, present or future. 2) Core system architecture – The HR, benefits and payroll core provides a level of automation we’ve never had before, which means our data is always accurate and up-to-date. 3) Employee Interface: SyncHR makes it easy for employees to see all their information in one place. Via self-service, employees are able to make changes to their personal data, payroll withholdings and direct deposit and can easily initiate life-change events for benefits. 4) Connecting to other systems: SyncHR bundles a world-class integration architecture with their solution which allows us to easily integrate our people data with other systems outside of the core. We've been successful at integrating SyncHR with our performance management, learning management and applicant tracking systems. 5) Commitment to our success: It’s extremely refreshing to work with a vendor who seems to truly care about our success. SyncHR isn’t perfect, but who is? Still, they seem to genuinely care about our business. We’re not just a number or help-desk-ticket to them. This matters a lot.

Cons:

SyncHR is different, especially if you’re more familiar using one of the mainstream HCM products. Some of my team members who prefer to do things the way they’ve also done them have struggled a bit with a different way of doing things. It’s actually easier and makes more sense once you take the time to learn it, but again, it’s different. Using the system as designed is very powerful as it significantly automates and streamlines processes and drives much greater data accuracy.

SyncHR from a Users Perspective with some insight into the Admin Side

4 3 years ago

Comments: Overall it has been nice and simple to use. Nice UI for the most part and it allows company wide announcements for updates and so forth. It's a nice place to house tax documents and benefit information.

Pros:

It is pretty straight forward in terms of where you need to go to look for certain things. Sign in and you have a menu of the different things you have access to depending on what your HR wants you to see. We can access our tax info and see our personal info. It's really easy to make changes to your information if needed. Clocking in and clocking out is straight forward and if any change requests are needed that is easily doable as well. Requesting time off is very simple and to the point which is always helpful, your balances are readily available.

Cons:

From time to time it glitches and I can't even log in or if I log in I can't access any other pages except the one that you land on once you log in. At times clocking in lags and it looks like it freezes but then when you refresh or clock in again it logs both clock in/out times. From the admin perspective approving changes at times gets missed or the changes don't get saved properly. It would be nice if for example adding time or making changes, the time will calculate for you, say adding 4.37 hours to 12:17pm to complete an 8 hour shift.
