Employee Self Service Functionality

  • 1.  Employee Self Service Functionality

    Posted Oct 10, 2017 01:45 PM

    We have been using the GP web client for our Employee Self serve functionality since the deprecation of Business Portal.  I will be looking for alternatives in Nashville this week and would really appreciate any feedback from anyone who uses a 3rd party product to meet these needs.  We are looking for a system that will easily allow employees to:
        View and Print past pay stubs
        View and print used/unused sick and PTO
        View, edit and Print W2 forms
        View and edit employee demographic information

    I would love to hear what product you use for these functionalities and if you would recommend it.

    Thank you,

    ​I have had clients use the Greenshades solution.

    Unfortunately, I'm not aware of any other solutions for GP.

    Out of curiosity, what about the existing GP functionality do you not like?

    ​Charles,

    Thank you for your response.  I will check into the Greenshades solution.  the main issue we have with the GP web client is the usability for our end users.   The interface is fine for someone who is used to being in GP all day but for an end user the interface is not standard compared to what is expected from today's end user.  Navigating the client and printing both have some GP quirks that can stop non-GP users in their tracks.

    Hi Aaron,

    As Charles mentioned, Greenshades does have an employee self-service module to help with all of these tasks. Unfortunately I was unable to make it this year, but we have a booth setup at Booth 343 if you want to drop by and speak with someone.

    ​We also use Greenshades.  For the purpose you stated, it has done a great job for us.  I'm sure there are other's out there, but we have found that GS is easy to use and to administer.

    Best regards,

    Mark

    ​Integrity Data can provide pay stubs.  We will be switching to them for ACA compliance, W-2's, and pay stubs for 2018.  I was not involved in the discussion to switch, so I can't speak to why we were dissatisfied with Greenshades, but I think it had more to do with the ACA Compliance and lack of robustness for our operations than issues with pay stubs.
