Easy to set up and run

5.0 5 years ago

Comments: Although we are only a small company, we were trying to manually record our employees' holiday and sick leave as well as days in lieu, but found that we were losing track of vital information. CakeHR lets us keep all this information in an organised way, and lets our employees also keep track of their accrued allowances, as well as requesting leave in a more formal and organised manner.

Pros:

I really liked the choice of price points, depending on the needs of your business. The user interface is also intuitive, and the calendar integrates well with Outlook.

Cons:

The trial version didn't have New Zealand public holidays automatically included, so I had to add these manually.

Alternatives Considered: BambooHR

Switched From: BambooHR

Reasons for Switching to Sage HR: Bamboo's functionality is great, but was much more than we needed, and was significantly more expensive.

Dear Nicole, I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying your experience with CakeHR! There are a lot of features we keep updating on a weekly basis and, probably thanks to you, now we have possibility to import also public holidays of New Zealand. So now, for certain, you can refer us to your New Zealand friends and colleagues, we are all set :) With thanks, Viktorija

Sage HR Review

3.0 last year

Comments: It satisfy our needs, but I would expect insights from the tool & a much better UX that is lacking.

Pros:

The application is salesforce based & the IT staff can easily configure change requests, new processes, reports, etc,...

Cons:

The UX is old-fashioned - the employees & managers do not like it.It is far from best of breed in capabilities & processes.

Alternatives Considered: Bob, SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite and Namely

Reasons for Choosing Sage HR: Workday was too expensive for both subscription & maintenance as we could not maintain it in-house.

Switched From: Workday HCM

Reasons for Switching to Sage HR: Cost & flexibility

Great HR software

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: So far Sage HR has exceeded my expectations. The employee access feature is great. HR no longer needs to take time out of their day for things like pay stubs or W2's.

Pros:

It is very easy to use, each employee receives a login and can check they're pay stubs, W2;s and so on.

Cons:

nothing yet, so far it has been a great addition.
