JMP Ranks Namely Among the Best Private Software Companies

Namely is proud to announce that JMP Securities, a premier San Francisco-based investment bank, has included Namely in their “Hot 100” list of the best privately held software companies.


We’re particularly honored given JMP Securities’ focus on technology. We’re also happy to be in the company of other leading software companies, like Dropbox, MongoDB, and Slack.  


Our CEO, Matt Straz, accepted the recognition at the JMP Securities Technology Conference, where he spoke on the future of HR and Namely’s commitment to serving mid-sized companies nationwide.


Most importantly, Matt shared why Namely is so keenly focused on employee experience. (We are, after all, building HR for humans). As he explained, a 2016 Sierra-Cedar report found that 47% of companies say “poor user experience” has the greatest impact on their HR vendor satisfaction rating. That’s why Namely has always put experience first—both for the admin, as well as for employees. We believe that an amazing user experience pays dividends. It leads to a more engaged workforce and allows employees to self-service many of their HR needs (from onboarding to open enrollment).


And as it turns out, the companies that use Namely agree. In addition to the JMP award, we’re also proud to announce that TrustRadius has again selected Namely as a Top Rated Core HR Software for 2017. (We were previously given the honor in 2016.)

 

Via TrustRadius, customers—like Mary Lanier-Evans at Quickstart Inc.—explain why they love Namely. As she recently put it, “Namely encourages employees to engage with each other by providing a social aspect to the homepage, similar to LinkedIn or Facebook. As a global organization, this allows employees to congratulate peers for anniversaries, birthdays or to welcome a new hire.”


With the support of JMP, TrustRadius, and more, we’re excited to keep innovating in HR technology for mid-sized companies. To learn how Namely can help your mid-sized company, request a demo today.
