Built for Teams overview

What is Built for Teams?

Built for Teams is a human resource information system (HRIS) that offers SMBs a centralized platform from which to track employee data and manage recruiting and onboarding processes. Featuring a dynamic organization chart, paid time off (PTO) tracking and applicant tracking technology, Built for Teams aims to deliver a user-friendly Human Resource management and succession planning solution.

With Built for Teams’ visualization tools, users can create, format, and maintain employee organization charts. From the org charts, users can gain valuable insight into workforce metrics and view details of staff vacancies and open positions. By incorporating a drag-and-drop interface with interactive chart navigation, Built for Teams enables users to edit groups and maintain information. To enhance user-productivity, Built for Teams allows users to share, publish, or print their org charts.

Designed to centralize employee records, Built for Teams provides users with a single place from which to store all employee contact information and documents. With custom fields, users can determine exactly what information or details they want to track. Built for Teams’ centralized HR system is also useful for employee recruiting, applicant tracking and onboarding processes as users can collect applications, screen applicants, and manage employee onboarding documentation all from the same platform.

Built for Teams equips users with the technology to request, review and approve employee time off through a simple self-service portal from which they can submit time-off requests, view the status of pending requests, and see their full transaction history. Through electronic request notifications, approval links, and automatic company calendar and employee record updates, Built for Teams serves to automate PTO management.

Built For Teams brought order to our PTO policy chaos

Used daily for 1-2 years

Review Source: Capterra

We're a small eCommerce company with a headcount of 15. When the team was smaller, paid time-off wasn't being tracked which led to concerns about abuse of the policy and a lack of transparency around who would be out of the office and when. It became necessary to put a tool in place to better handle PTO requests and tracking, but a traditional HRIS would have been overkill for a company our size. Built For Teams allowed me to implement a robust, yet easy-to-use system that didn't cause any headaches for employees and gave managers greater visibility over when each member of their team would be unavailable.

Pros
- The UI incorporates best practices so very little training is needed to get new users comfortable with the system; the user experience is very logical. - The shared calendar can be set to allow employees and managers to view others' approved PTO dates to ensure adequate coverage before a new PTO request is made.

Cons
- The system can be used to warehouse a lot of employee data that we don't keep in Built (tax info, direct deposit info, benefits data not related to PTO) and the inclusion of those fields can sometimes cause confusion for new employees.

Response from Built for Teams


Thanks a million for this detailed feedback, Colin! Knowing that our product is bringing some order to your PTO processes is great to hear. Thank you for the feedback regarding the additional, unneeded fields too. It's helpful to hear things like this and it definitely influences our product development roadmap going forward!

The customer service is great and the overall value of the software is fantastic.

Pros
Excellent management of time off requests Calendar is wonderful for shared items Perfect place to store key HR info on each TM Recruiting system is good and getting better

Cons
Some of the interfaces still need some tweaks. Nothing major, but some catching up. The flow of the system could be better. Again, not major, but could use upgrading.

Easy Managing of Employee Vacations and Time Off.

Used daily for 2+ years
Reviewed 2019-12-09
Review Source: Capterra

As a small business it is challenging when people are out of the office. Before BFT we utilized Outlook to manage vacations and other out of office items. The problems was that anyone could edit the calendar so we had no idea if the time off was approved by management or not. We also had no easy way to track the total time off an employee was taking. With BFT all employees must make requests to management. Management can view the amount of time they already took off and decide to approve or deny the request. This ensures that employees do not take more time off then they are allowed.

Pros
When an employee requests time off for various reasons they can easily send a request using the BFT application on their desktop. The request shows up in my inbox and I can approve or deny with one click. Before I approve it however the request shows any already approved vacation conflicts. The online calendar syncs with Outlook so I can see at a glance upcoming vacations. I also like that you can add additional categories other than Vacation. This gives the employee options on how to use their allotted time.

Cons
At the moment I have not found any issues with the software.

I have used Built for Teams for last two years for myself and my team. I am extremely happy with its functionality and ease of use.

Pros
The simplicity of the software is the best aspect. Taking time off and recording time away from work should not be complicated. Built for Teams makes it easier and hassle-free.

Cons
The only con that I would mention will be the "Time Approval" functionality in the Mobile App. It needs to be more user-friendly Everything else is very streamlined and user-friendly.

Response from Built for Teams


Amulya thank you so much for your wonderful review! Built for Teams truly is an incredibly user friendly program with flexible options and powerful tools. We appreciate your feedback and please know our development team is continually working on improvements and we are very excited about the improvements coming to our mobile app soon!
