New Employee Web Portal

  • 1.  New Employee Web Portal

    Posted 12-04-2018 16:03
    We are in the beginning stages of developing a web portal for all of our employees to login and download important information such as: paystubs, W2s, & 1095s. We also want the ability to update employee information, submit PTO requests, review performance reviews, submit expense reports, review company documents such as employee handbooks, safety training, etc... A group messaging feature would also be nice. We have reviewed Keystyle (HR Management) but were taken back by their pricing and wanted to reach out to find out what other options there are out there and if there is any feedback; positive or negative that anyone would like to share.

    We have three companies under common ownership; with a total of approximately 600 employees. We are currently using Vista for our PM / Accounting software, and Field Time for our mobile time-entry.

    I appreciate everyone's feedback, thanks!

    ​Here are three that we recommend clients vet:

    Employee Navigator -
    Nexben -
    Easecentral -

    Easecentral is the most popular because it allows off enrollment period ads and subtracts .

    Most payroll companies have an HRIS product that is typically offered as an add-on to the current system and should be reasonably affordable.  I know that ADP has such a system that performs the tasks you mention and also has some functions for performance management as well.   Rather than going with a separate solution, it may make financial and logical sense to check with your payroll provider to see what they offer.

    We are signing up with Zenefits.  I believe it does everything you're asking for.  Maybe check out BambooHR as well.
