Great Payroll System

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Great tool that is affordable and easy to use!

Pros:

What I like most about OnPay is how easy it is to use the tool. I do not have a payroll background and I was able to figure out how to process payroll with getting frustrated. It's very intuitive and easy to use. I also like that chat functionality. They respond instantly and are incredibly knowledgeable/helpful.

Cons:

I wish we could integrate it with our HRIS platform so I wouldn't have to switch between 2 different systems to process payroll (401k contributions and approve non-exempt time cards, etc.)

The best payroll service available!

5.0 2 months ago New

Comments: We've had state tax issues that OnPay has navigated us through, and every issue we've had, they've quickly replied and resolved the matter.

Pros:

OnPay is easy to use, and our employees love how easy they can manage their profiles.

Cons:

The only thing we wish that OnPay did was automatically deduct payroll. Other than that, it's an excellent product, with outstanding customer service.

Direct deposit disaster

1.0 last month New

Comments: Terrible experience with the platform and the customer service. [SENSITIVE CONTENT]
[SENSITIVE CONTENT] and [SENSITIVE CONTENT] are not helpful.

Pros:

Nothing about this platform is intelligent.

Cons:

The help chat is useless, the notifications are confusing, the customer service is awful. An employee logged into their app and it had another employees name.

Beats all the other platforms for Accountants

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: Overall it has been amazing compared to where we have come from. Patriot, Accountants World, Intuit are nightmares. Even Gusto doesn’t care about their partners like this company. Thank you OnPay. We will be sticking with you as we grow.

Pros:

They actually care about doing what they say they will do and professionalism. This is a strong contender for Accounting professionals. In fact, the best experience we have had. There are many out there that will make you pull your hair out. This company has incredible support staff and they really care about their partnerships.

Cons:

Wish they would integrate co-branding more into their service for their partners. Wish they would integrate with more time keeping platforms.
