HR tool that makes onboarding and goal setting much simpler than I've experienced before!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: My overall experience has been very positive. Sympa has been a really important aspect of our company and the management of HR internally and getting that information out to employees. At my last company we didn't have anything like it, so it's been a huge help.

Pros:

I like that the portal is completely customized for our organization. When I log in, I have access to tons of resources, a company directory (we're global so it's really helpful), and my business goals, PDP, sales quotas, etc.

Cons:

The user interface could be a bit cleaner, but overall it's really great!

Comments: Great experience, super to use and implemented software. Next to that we are in charge of changing the system. No super high consulting costs. What you see is what you get, and it works great!

Pros:

Adaptability, Look & Feel, Implementation

Cons:

Because of the enormous options, it took a while for me to have the right scope for implementation

Comments: Me and my colleagues that used SYMPA always liked it a lot! It was easy to introduce to the organization and easy to improve overtime. We got a system that made us more effective.

Pros:

An HR system that is very easy to adopt to the business needs. It is very easy to take out reports. It really makes HR work more efficient!

Cons:

In the earlier version it did not keep track of all changes in the system, now this has been improved.
