As the world’s largest and most trusted software marketplace, G2 is visited by 80 million software buyers each year. Its annual Best Software Awards rank the world’s best software companies and products based on authentic, timely reviews from real users. The G2 Best Software Awards top 100 companies are ranked based on a combination of Satisfaction and Market Presence scores for each vendor on G2, and the top 100 products are ranked based on reviews across all categories they are a part of. To be recognized as a Best Software Award winner, a software company or product must receive at least 50 approved and published reviews during the 2022 calendar year. Scores reflect only data from reviews submitted during this evaluation period.

“While G2 publishes the Best Software Awards each year, they’re really awards from customers,” said Sara Rossio, Chief Product Officer at G2. “Representing a vote of confidence from real software users, these awards also spotlight those that have risen to the top among thousands of companies. With 2 million+ verified software reviews, the most in a single destination, our marketplace features more than 145,000 products and services across 2,100 different categories.”

Paylocity is consistently recognized as a leader on G2’s Best Software Awards and G2’s quarterly Grid Reports for the last five years. Paylocity’s modern architecture provides a single employee system of record to support the entire employee lifecycle, connecting HR data to other business solutions and services for better consistency and greater efficiency overall. By combining consumer-oriented experiences with an automated all-in-one platform that streamlines and automates manual HR tasks, Paylocity clients are seeing better results in retention and engagement—ultimately driving business success.

“Paylocity empowered my team to be much more effective, which allows me to work on the business, not in the business,” says Ryan Zimmerman, Senior Director of Human Resources at POLYWOOD. “We’re no longer stuck in the weeds of everyday tasks — we have the information at our fingertips to focus on strategy as we grow. Our partnership with Paylocity makes a huge difference to us as a fast-growth company. If there’s a feature that we need, Paylocity is always prepared to discuss changes and find solutions."

“Having a system that does all these things in one spot — captures employee information, makes it easy for employees to use, and enables administrators to customize — those are the three pieces that make Paylocity work,” says Sam Foos, VP of People and Culture at Upward Projects. “Paylocity is a one-stop shop. The information flows from onboarding to HR to payroll. You're not playing with a bunch of different systems. You can focus on high-level work like talent acquisition strategy.”

Paylocity invests 15% of annual revenue back into product development each year, so recognition like this is especially meaningful, as clients play a huge role in the development and innovation of the solution. Treating clients like co-creators, including implementing feedback from avenues such as G2 reviews, enables Paylocity to continually enhance the software to meet and exceed the needs of our users.

Most recently, Paylocity enabled greater use of data across the enterprise through further enhancements with third-party integrations by fully integrating Cloudsnap, a flexible, low-code solution for integrating disparate business applications into the open and extensible platform. Building from a single employee record, the platform enables clients to leverage workforce data across their entire organization. Hundreds of integrations are already available on Paylocity’s Marketplace, and dozens more have recently been added to connect business data and applications for greater efficiencies and business agility.
