Overall the tool was such a time saver. Adjustments that took weeks to do in the past were resolved in minutes. Looking forward to learning the advances in the tool to implement those the next time we use Simply Merit.

Easy and quick implementation

Overall, my experience was positive. The process of implementing the system didn't take long at all. Our managers picked up on the process quickly and there was very little support needed from administrators.

Pros

Ease of use and implementation. Very well designed with clean interface. Was up and running in days

Cons

Lack of customization limits you to use the product as it is designed. Most things are there but would be nice to have a little more flexibility

Response from MorganHR

Pros

It was the best choice our compensation department ever made. We were struggling doing the Merit and Bonus process with spreadsheets, sending hundreds of emails. And SimplyMerit does it all and much more.
Great customer service and helpdesk. It's easy to use from an administrator point-of-view and end-user as well. So many features that make your Merit and Bonus process easier and safe. We saved a lot of time on the approval process.

Cons

None. Every day I use the system I find a new applicability, a new feature that makes the process easier.

Response from MorganHR

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, and being so insightful when we talk with you about your process. We really appreciate your input!

Excellent - [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] is fantastic. He understands how compensation/merit systems work and is a great resource when questions arise. He's very knowledgeable.

Pros

Ease of use and quick implementation time.

Cons

Great product and they always seem to be updating it. The only request I would have is that they make it to where information can be manually entered since right now, all must be uploaded. Uploading is great when you have a lot of information to get into the system at one time, but when you just have a quick change or addition here and there, the ability to get into the program and just quickly enter a change would make a HUGE difference.

Response from MorganHR

Thank you, Melanie! We appreciate the feedback, and you'll be happy to know that your requested feature is in development right now and should be in testing this week!

2020 Merit Increases

Used Other for 6-12 months
Reviewed on 2020/07/24
Review Source: Capterra

Overall the tool was such a time saver. Adjustments that took weeks to do in the past were resolved in minutes. Looking forward to learning the advances in the tool to implement those the next time we use Simply Merit.

Pros

Painless to load information into the tool. Extremely easy to navigate the tool as a manager to adjust merits amounts, review seeded metrics, and approve. Elimination of using spreadsheets and not having to always revise and send out new spreadsheets to managers was such a time saver. Ability to retrieve approvals in the matter of seconds was so instrumental in having the merit process run so smooth.

Cons

Not having delegates able to approve for executives was a bit of a challenge. Managers not being able to sign in due to email addresses with upper case alphabets was also a thorn.

Response from MorganHR

Thank you, Joe, for taking time to provide your review of SimplyMerit. Ease of use is definitely a hallmark of our design.

Overall, my experience was positive. The process of implementing the system didn't take long at all. Our managers picked up on the process quickly and there was very little support needed from administrators.

Pros

The implementation process was quick and easy and was definitely better than the manual Excel spreadsheets we were using before for the merit increase process. I love that the workflow can be set and progress can be tracked. Once all merit/promotion decisions were completed, we were able to create a simple download file to import into our accounting system.

Cons

We were able to build out for some of our exceptions, but not all. We were not able to build an automated step process in for our attorneys, they had to be moved to the next step by changing the merit percentage. It wasn't a hard process, but it was something that was done by HR before the process was sent to managers for approval.

Response from MorganHR

Thank you, Amy, for taking time to write such a great review.
