Why Do Companies Prefer Paylocity over Paycor?

Unmatched Flexibility 

Paylocity believes in providing a seamless experience no matter what systems you use. Our single platform provides end-to-end HR capabilities paired with flexibility to connect to other business systems. Our Marketplace offers integrations with 350+ complimentary business systems, and our open APIs provide even more flexibility.

Although Paycor has a marketplace, Paylocity offers nearly twice as many integrations.

Continuous Product Innovation

Because Paylocity has developed an end-to-end solution from the ground up, we continually enhance and expand our platform to meet your evolving needs. Demonstrating our commitment to solving today's and tomorrow’s HR challenges, we invest 10-15% annually in research and development.

Paylocity invests more than 3x in R&D compared to Paycor according to FY23 fiscal results. Paycor has relied on acquisitions and partnerships to fill some core HR needs rather than build their own solutions. 

Superior Service

Your success begins right from the start. We work to understand your company’s unique needs and tailor our easy-to-use solutions to deliver the performance you expect. 90% of calls are answered in a minute or less — so you can get the support you need to stay focused on your business.
