We had a bumpy start with our overall experience, but we've ended up in a great place and I'm super satisfied and pleased with the tool and customer service. As an HR professional, this has completely changed the way we bring in a new hire, improving the candidate experience, while making our lives easier by eliminating the manual aspects that come with onboarding. Customer support is fast, someone is always available. Since our roll-out, I've never had to wait on anyone to get back to me. It's almost instant! Thank you to HR Cloud for changing the experience! I love how much you can customize and really tailor the system to fit the company's Onboarding needs. The tasks have proven to be super simple and fast for new hires to complete. I've seen a variety of new hires with different levels of technology knowledge jump in the system and handle all the items necessary to get them successfully onboarded into the company. We are a large company with many different hire types, and we've been able to customize each hire to receive what they need seamlessly. We use the tool strictly for onboarding, getting new hire documents complete and for that purpose we've had an awesome experience so far.

My client started using HRCloud a little over a year ago and it's definitely improved their HR department's workflow. The Workmates app alone was worth it since they didn't even have a dedicated employee recognition system in place to begin with. The idea of a teamwork/engagement app did a lot more than they expected with regards to boosting morale, and they/I have already recommended it to other people in the industry. I initially signed them up for a trial just because they needed a better onboarding solution since there was really just a disjointed collection of spreadsheets and paperwork. After toying around with everything a little more it they found it had a lot of other integrated features - ATS, benefits management, background checking, performance management, etc. They don't use even half of the features but it's nice to know they're there if and when they need them. I've been involved at every step and the support has been A+ since we started - I honestly think that's one of the biggest things that keeps us hooked to their products. We were completely overwhelmed when reviewing all the HR software options out there, but so far HR Cloud has been extremely helpful and hasn't given us a reason to look elsewhere.

HR Cloud is not just some software to store paperwork; the different apps are great and serve different purposes. Onboard, Asset Tracker, Workmates (like an internal Facebook), Kudos and Offboard help to not online streamline and simplify my workload, but also help to build employee morale. My overall start with HR Cloud was a little rocky during implementation; partly because my company's structure is not the most straight-forward, but also because my implementation rep changed mid-way through the process. Luckily, my new rep is very knowledgeable and was able to help fix some mistakes that were made by the original rep. We are live with the software now, and while there is a learning curve, overall it is easy to use. The best part is, if you do need help, their chat window in the bottom right is fast and simple (if you can easily explain your problem in written form). The Customer Service reps are fast to respond and typically have no trouble getting you an answer. Overall my experience has been positive, despite a few bumps in the road. Certainly, recommend this software for any HR Professional trying to streamline their processes and keep better records.The Onboard Checklists are great to streamline new hires, and ensure nothing is missed; but I really love ALL of the apps for this software.

We utilized HR Cloud to move from 100% paper records to electronic records for employee information. HR Cloud has been helpful for storing older scanned forms and for producing and organizing electronic forms when onboarding new hires. We have been using HR Cloud for approximately 4 months. The interface is relatively clean and easy for our human resource manager and employees to use. We considered several other cloud-based HR programs in addition to HR Cloud, including Zenefits, BambooHR and ADP. One thing that was a little concerning was that HR Cloud had many less reviews than the others on various websites, the Apple Store and Google Play. We can't explain why this was, but one thing the reviews consistently stated was that their customer support was very good. This was important to us because we had no prior experience with HR software - and it turned out to be so true! It's been our experience that HR Cloud reps are incredibly personable and knowledgeable and they are readily available via email or video call. One other thing that may be helpful for some: We have a number of Spanish-speaking employees, so we were interested in a program that could be optimized in Spanish. Even though HR Cloud doesn't offer their content in Spanish, they are optimized for the web and our employees simply set up their browser (usually Chrome) to translate pages into Spanish. It seems to be working fine.- Relatively straight-forward, easy to use - Scales across our PC and mobile devices - Highly customizable - Helpful integration between Applicant Tracking and Onboard; allows us to post job openings to our website, Zip Recruiter, Monster, etc., receive applications electronically and manage within HR Cloud - EXCELLENT customer service via phone; decent self-help online reference materials - Good value for cost

Great product, great customer support, great implementation team. They do everything for you and make the whole transition process look easy and smooth. HR modules they offer are very useful and you get a comprehensive and easy-to-use HR solution. If you work in HR or as a manager in your company, you will love this product. With HR Cloud, you will forget about all the administrative tasks you spent so much time doing. Definitely a big time saver, as all HR processes are automated. Additional features are added frequently and the customer support is absolutely amazing. They are available 24/7 and the whole team really puts a lot of effort in solving any issues you might have. I would definitely recommend it to anybody, especially if you still do not have an HRIS software in place. Embrace the technology and let the software take over some of your work.
