Deborah Braud

Very good system

2017-05-03

Cezanne has really transformed and improved the way we manage our employee data.

Pros

Very good to manage employee data Easy to navigate Different types of reports and analytics User friendly Excellent customer service Data protection and security

Cons

Password rule too complicated and can be limiting Some rules/processes in the system could be more straight forward Should be tailored so there are 2 categories of people: permanent employees and contractors/freelancers which will allow for better tracking and management

Cezanne HR System

2016-09-28

The main benefit for us were the performance and absence modules.

Pros

It offers an easy to use self service system The different modules make it flexible A good range of data recording and reporting options The automatic notifications and processes are helpful It aligns easily with payroll regarding the data you can collate and the reports you can pull.

Cons

Guidance could be clearer on how to set up and use different modules - more of a step by step guide Templates could be available for popular forms and processes One reporting function where all data can be pulled in one place rather than having to pull different reports for different information and merge the data

Great HR data management software !

2018-04-06

Honestly, the best HR data management tool I have worked with so far !

Pros

- Smooth onboarding process.

Cons

The system is quite complex and complicated at times, hence it will take a bit of more time to get the hang of it (for instance the onboarding process seemed a bit longer as compared with the other onboardings we had for other tools).

An All Round Helping Hand - Excellent HR Software Solution

2016-09-27

The performance of Cezanne has remained effective and efficient with no visible signs of slowing down in performance.

Pros

Encourages a greater involvement on the part of the employee and the manager Some of the best customer service I have experienced.

Cons

For example, the ability to filter information on screen so that I can control the order in which I'm viewing it, rather than exporting it to an Excel spreadsheet.

Never be afraid to ask - there really is no such thing as a silly question Don't let the software's simplicity fool you - it's a comprehensive package, all round solution Have what you would like to see from the software clearly mapped out. It will make using the demo far more beneficial.

Cezanne Review

2018-04-10

I would recommend Cezanne to anyone who is looking for a robust system with great customer service and support throughout.

Pros

- The system links with our payroll provider so they are able to upload all of our employee payslips, P60's etc which is very time effective for us

Cons

- The initial work can be quite a big job and some time does need to be dedicated to getting to grips with the system but after this is done the system is very efficient and effective

Comprehensive HR System with excellent customer support

2018-11-02

At the recent annual conference the developers mentioned that there will be a new feature to programme the system to delete areas of employee profiles after they leave which again is very important from a GDPR perspective.

Pros

Meeting our organisation needs, excellent support from CSR throughout the implementation phase, cost effective HR system.

Cons

The reporting is very good, however some improvements can be made to integrate more elements of the system into reports (i.e all compensation information)

1st year product and customer support review

2019-11-06

It has been absolutely fantastic! There hasn’t been a single case when I was not able to receive a solution to my questions. I am also grateful to [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] for offering the best solutions to fit our case(s) as I am not always aware of them myself, so thank you very much!

Pros

A single package with different functionalities (e.g. absence, onboarding, performance management) in one place.

Cons

The setting up, as I felt and still feel I am not always able to do it by myself, despite of the available guidance online.

Response from Sue


Thank you for taking the time to post a review of Cezanne HR. We are obviously very concerned to read that you’ve experienced performance problems with the system. We constantly monitor and regularly increase the system’s resources to ensure that response times are fast. Did you experience a temporary problem that is now resolved? If not, please let me know as we’d be keen to work with you to investigate why you are experiencing what appears to be uncharacteristic response times.

Also, we are currently working on a refresh of the user interface. Would you be happy to participate in our client research? If so, please let us know.

Easy and professional HR use

2018-04-06

Pros

Cezanne offers a really professional solution for keeping track of various employee information - several important details are easy to keep track of and the in-depth search options allows for easy data mining of everything.

Cons

Getting to know Cezanne can be tricky. There's a lot of options and back-end building that can seem challenging before really getting to know the system. However, once you've worked in Cezanne for a little while is all makes perfect sense :)

Terrific customer service paired with great value for money and intuitive utilisation

2017-09-27

Looking forward to getting started on the performance module.

Pros

Very intuitive for users good value for money customer service: extremely nice, fast and efficient support (not only during sales period but also since we started the contract) so far all promises have been kept possibilty to add requests and upvote other requests in order to develop/implement new features

Cons

Some limitations (after all it is a pre-defined system which is very affordable) that require work arounds no onboarding process / module (yet) TOIL for us is currently complicated, waiting for a new release at the end of the year that hopefully solves this issue (note: also due to not using the time keeping module)

What our business needed

2018-09-17

To date it has proved to be what we wanted it to be. Our employees can access their personal records and request changes in a very straight forward way.

Pros

Ease of use for the employee. GDPR compliance.

Cons

Considerable amount of training / time required for system administrator to understand how Cezanne works best to optimise its potential for your organisation.

very useful, great look and feel, great support

2013-10-17

We started without training because we were rather anxious to get going and we were hoping it would be largely self-explanatory and 'organic'.

Pros

Great look and feel. Self-explanatory.

Cons

The only thing I can think about is that we would like the option to hide fields that we won't use.

An adequate HR website that suffers from many minor issues

2019-01-14

Cezanne has by and large improved the HR experience here, however a large part of this is due to how poor it was before Cezanne. This is a great idea, with good ideas, that sadly falls short of the mark when considering user function.

Pros

The Dashboard is useful for showing a brief overview of everything I have on there, such as unfinished tasks which is a useful reminder. From a management position it is useful as it allows the review of all employee's absences from one location and provides historical evidence of this.

Cons

I appreciate this is for security purposes, however a password protected document would achieve the same aim without totally wiping the data, often requiring re-sending of the email.

Response from Cezanne HR


We agree with you that the OK button on the absence form is confusing. It is going to be removed shortly (and some other improvements made to this area). However, ii sounds as if a number of the issues you mention ¿ such as the logo, reports and team calendars - could be down to the way that your system is set up. If you could let me have your contact information, I can ask someone from our services team to get in touch to set up a call with you and your HR admin. They¿d also be keen to understand the issues you mention with IE as we work hard to make sure the Cezanne HR runs well in all of the modern browsers.

We are also working on a more significant refresh of the user interface and would be keen to get some feedback from you. If you are happy to participate in our client research, please let me know.

Cezanne HR good baseline system with a lot of potential

2018-02-08

Was pleasantly surprised by the product with good clean dashboards and very easy to use.

Pros

Clean user interface, professional looking and you can include your brand. Fairly straight forward admin setup and excellent user support.

Cons

Only a few workflows available at the moment. ie admin need to update fields in various areas to record promotion correctly. I understand this is on the roadmap.
