Namely announces Q3 milestones

Namely, the #1 HR Software company for mid-sized companies, has announced promising third-quarter results as it continues to pursue its mission to help these businesses build better workplaces.

In Q3, Namely experienced 28 percent growth in revenue year over year, surpassed 1,400 clients, and hit a company milestone of overseeing and managing more than $16 billion in annual payroll. The company continues to add new functionality to the platform to sustain its position as an industry leader among HR solution providers serving the mid-market. These powerful product enhancements and new strategic partnerships include JazzHR, an applicant tracking system (ATS) provider, and ThinkHR, a compliance solution and services provider.

Product Enhancements

Namely continues to make progress on its product roadmap, delivering on promised product innovations like the launch of its third-quarter benchmarking reports and E-Verify product integration. Here are some of the other key product enhancements Namely introduced in Q3:

  • Benefits Benchmarking — Benefits Benchmarking delivers insights on how a company’s benefit offerings stack up against comparable companies in the same industry and geography. Clients can choose from 22 industry and geography-based data sets to compare against their own cost structures and offerings and get insights on the popularity of benefits with employees.
  • Mobile Improvements — Namely’s updated mobile experience now gives employees the ability to access their HR, payroll, and benefits information wherever, whenever.
  • E-Verify Integration — Clients can now use the Namely platform to create, submit, and view cases for E-Verify, the web-based system that allows employers to confirm employees’ eligibility to work. The integration reduces errors and saves clients time by pre-populating employee information directly from Namely.

New Strategic Partnerships

Two of the biggest challenges facing growing small and mid-sized businesses are finding top talent and remaining compliant. In Q3, Namely delivered solutions that address these issues by announcing partnerships with JazzHR and ThinkHR.

  • JazzHR — Namely is now an authorized reseller of JazzHR and which will enable Namely clients looking for a powerful recruiting and candidate management tool to improve and streamline their talent acquisition efforts. Once a candidate is hired, new employee information flows seamlessly into the Namely platform, creating a streamlined onboarding experience.
  • ThinkHR — Namely’s partnership with ThinkHR will give CFO’s and HR professionals the people risk management solutions they need to stay ahead of complex federal and state employer legislation and keep their organizations compliant.

Enhanced Client Engagement

Namely has also taken strides to engage clients and deliver enhanced customer service experiences. The company’s new Help Community and Namely Connections event series allow Namely clients to connect with product advisors and customer service agents while also giving them the resources to make the most out of Namely’s platform and services.

  • Namely Help Community — In Q3, Namely launched its new online resource library to empower HR professionals and their employees to quickly find answers to their questions and submit and track support cases for additional, personalized help.
  • Namely Connections — Namely introduced its regional event series, Namely Connections, for both existing and prospective clients. The events feature expert-led sessions aimed to help current Namely clients optimize their platform usage, strengthen their people operations, and engage with other HR professionals and Namely product experts.
