Find Everything Easy

Pros

What I like most about Paycor is I'm able to find everything I need quickly and easily. If I need a day off from work I quickly submit it and my team leader gets a notification right away. Also, I can quickly find pay stubs benefits information straight away, whats better than that?

Cons

I haven't noticed any cons and I probably use the software once a month. Other software that are competitors werent as easy to use as Paycor

Paycor is a stable platform for our payroll and tax reporting needs

Payroll and tax reporting were the two key initiatives finance was trying to solve and that has happened with Paycor.

Pros

Our finance dept made the switch to Paycor to solve a few issues and it didn't take long to realize it was the right choice. We have had great support and all issues have been solved from finance's point of view.

Cons

As a Sysadmin, I would love to see Paycor integrate with Okta to enable provisioning. Their lack of support for Okta is the one thing keeping me from highly rating this software. Several other vendors have integrated with Okta. If this ever happened it would bridge a gap between HR and IT allowing information to seamlessly flow between the departments. Maybe one day.

Amazing payroll software

Compared to Paychex (which we had for decades), Paycor is amazingly liberating and simple solution to time management. Thanks to the amazing software, I feel that I am as qualified as the payroll specialist who used to be assigned to our account, and who oversaw every pay run.

Pros

I like being able to process payroll myself, for our 40 employees. So, definitely the ease of use. It is also integrated with the Perform Time management solution, so importing everyone's hours is a breeze - major time savings. We use a Paycor branded, integrated biometric time clock which all employees love.

Cons

The updates are a little too frequent! I get used to a certain format, then they change it! But other than that, no real drawbacks.

A great payroll system

Very pleased with it!

Pros

It's compliant with all rules and regulations, and is a great choice for all types of employers/employees.
Processing payroll is fast and easy to do which is the most important thing
The customer service is always happy to help and solves issues promptly with me

Cons

There's a lot of extra functions whose functions are lost on a lot of users we have in the office. Since our team set it up, it made it easy to understand. However, the benefits were lost on the rest of our employees and it took some time to explain
Double punches can be an issue at times, by accident on the users as well

I recommend it to any company that doesn't want all the payment hustles.

Pros

It's very user friendly and easy to use specially for our finance department (which isn't usually technology friends in our case)

Cons

About two years using it now but a bit of automation would be nice. various things are handled manually by our HR then to finance.

get paid!`

As a Paycor customer, I've been able to track all vacation and time off accurately. Set up is the most difficult. Once completed, the program works like a charm!

Pros

This is an easy to use program for both employers and employees. It makes payroll easy. Payroll reports are easily attained.

Cons

Set up is always time consuming and as with all accounting products, it must be done correctly the first time around.... no mistakes!

Paycor Perform Review

Pros

Paycor is a very valuable in that it stores all of your HR information in one place and you are able to share it among your office staff. No more keeping several spreadsheets on this personnel information.

Cons

It is time consuming to set up but the results are worth it.

Paycor Perform Review

We use Paycor for all of our HR solutions.

Pros

We currently are using Paycor Perform and have been for many years. It is the best HR software that I have used in my HR career. Paycor continually updates the process and programs to make it more efficient to use. They really take the feedback of customers seriously.

Cons

There isn't a "training" program that can be done to use get the most out of Paycor Perform's system. There are too many videos and job aids to possibly learn them all and use the product everyday. I suggested that they have a "training" for new users. Heck, for old users too.

Paycor pay System

Well my checks still deposit. Afyer further thought I think im having HR issues.

Pros

At our office we transferred over to Paycor and I was instantly impressed by its user friendly dashboard. PTO. Insurance docs can all be found with ease.

Cons

Cant necessaraly source this as true. But on the HR side of things they were having issues with entry/usage on their end. Missing PTO etc. However, this could be human error.

A user review

Pros

Requesting time off was straight-forward. The time-off system in general seemed to work quite well. It was easy for me to tell how much time I had available, and easy to see which days I had requested off (and the status of those requests).

Cons

Finding tax forms was very confusing. I recall needing help from colleagues to be able to find the screen with my tax forms.
