Managing performance and tracking leave for employees can be a challenge for mid and smaller-sized businesses - especially those that operate on an international basis and don't have the deep pockets and added HR resources of larger businesses. Cezanne OnDemand is a cloud HR system that offers leave management, performance appraisal administration, international capabilities, inbuilt alerts, workflow, document sharing and collaboration, and more.
This Cezanne OnDemandreview will explore the app's many features to help businesses determine if it fits their needs. We'll detail how Cezanne OnDemand can save your team time and money by not only automating processes, but by providing a platform to enable employees to work together more productively wherever they are.
The company Cezanne HR is the developer behind Cezanne OnDemand, a product that is designed to help businesses manage people…the lifeblood of any organization. By automating HR processes and triggering reminders, businesses reduce time and help employees work more productively.

Cezanne OnDemand is a great way for businesses to keep track of employees, while also ensuring workers are more engaged and more productive. By automating processes and taking HR online, managers rid themselves of unnecessary admin overheads and workers are able to manage their own data and help themselves to the information they need. Time and attendance is planned for 2014. Right now the system supports booking time off.
With its extensive features, Cezanne OnDemand has everything small and mid-sized businesses need to handle human resources matters.
When you first login to Cezanne OnDemand, you'll be presented with the HR dashboard.
HR personnel and line managers can configure their dashboard to display the information they most need to see on a daily basis.
Employees have the ability to request holiday or other absence. Once requested, the system will send a notification to the supervisor to alert for approval.
At any time, an employee can access an overview of all leave requests to determine which have been approved and which are still outstanding.
To add a new worker, HR simply fills out the form fields in the "Add New Starter" section.
By popular demand, Cezanne OnDemand added a social media component. This area of the site allows workers to post status updates and share documents.
If an employee wants to join a community in which he/she does not already hold membership, that employee can join by clicking "join workspace" and awaiting approval.
Cezanne OnDemand has a secure support portal where users can log an issue and follow the status of that issue through to resolution. Questions can also be e-mailed. Once the question has been received, the support team will respond via the portal, with automatic email notifications letting customers know that their issue is being answered. The support team is currently only available for English-language support during U.K. business hours (9:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Monday-Friday), but the company plan to extend support hours in 2014 to provide better coverage for US customers. A knowledge base is also available that answers many common usage questions.
Cezanne OnDemand offers three modules, People (which includes social workspaces) and is the core module, Absence and Performance. The core module) cost £1/$1.50 per employee per month, with the additional modules £1/$1.50 each.

Available translations (English, Spanish, German, French and Portuguese) are provided for free. There is a minimum monthly charge.
