Is Namely payroll good for small businesses?

Namely bills itself as a product for mid-size businesses, but they say their product is great for companies starting at 15 employees. Many businesses with 15 employees still consider themselves small, so it's likely that Namely HR software, including their payroll, will work for many small businesses.

Where can I find the Namely payroll login?

The Namely sign in for all their products is in the top right corner of their home page. Just click the log in button or go to

Is there an Namely API for doing custom integrations?

Yes, the Namely HRIS does have an API for custom integrations. You can find the documentation for it here.

Namely is a friendly, easy-to-use Human Resources software platform that integrates personnel info, payroll and benefits administration, and goal-setting/performance management in a social-media-esque user interface.

I’ve been blown away by the turnaround time on inquiries. Namely’s support team takes care of me and my organization. It’s like we’re the #1 customer every time.


Namely can do just about everything we need. Plus it’s nice have one person to call if we have questions.

Eli Broverman

We switched from Namely because it didn't support some features and functionality we needed.
