Basic, but it does the job

2018-05-29

Helps to make onboarding, offboarding and vacation/time off requests easy.

Pros

Also great for tracking vacation and time-off requests.

Cons

No longer offered for free. Great for small to medium sized companies, but I wouldn't recommend it for a larger company. There are comparable options out there.

Collage HR Review

2017-12-07

At this specific time in Collage's lifespan, I would be hesitant to recommend them unless you were looking for something very basic.

Pros

The employee directory, organizational chart, and employee profiles are very user friendly.

Cons

Their time off module didn't seem to work for us as they couldn't get time off requests down to the hour.

Excellent for HR beginners and experts

2017-06-01

Way easier to manage employee time off calendars and secure data.

Pros

Ease of use, great features, FREE, fantastic customer support, listens to suggestions, and when they don't have a solution, they always have another suggestion of where to follow.

Cons

I would really love an app to offer for my employees to request time off to make things easier on the go.

Easy, professional and intuitive.

2017-10-19

Deeper insight into our employee profiles, easy and secure way to collect employee bank and SIN information, flexible benefits package choices.

Pros

Onboarding new employees and updating policy changes are very easy, and the process is documented so I always know where we're at.

Cons

I wish it was easier to add onboarding steps and customize the welcome email for new hires to align with our branding.

The tool is easy to use but does not have many features

2017-06-01

It is a lot easier to book time off vs our old way.

Pros

It pulls basic reports that you need at the moment and it's better than maintaining data in Google spreadsheets, however there is so much more that you should be able to do with the tool.

Cons

It could have so many more functionalities, starting with compensation history. Also another huge downer is the fact that you cannot have different access levels to the information. IE direct managers should be able to look at their team's info.

The transition from HR track has been fairly easy.

2017-06-08

It is making it easier for me to deal with all of the time off requested by staff and keep an ongoing record of it.

Pros

The calendar feature is great along with the ability to allow staff to login and request time off.

Cons

The reporting functionality, in particular for time off. I would like to be able to pull a report on just one employee with a list of all days off.

Collage created a hassle-free product that simplifies the information transfer process for our team.

2017-06-07

- vacation tracking and approvals - self-serve benefits admin

Pros

self-serve benefits admin for employees - love how Collage's functionality gives the employee the power to manage their own coverage and information updates.

Cons

some quirks: vac listed as hours *and* days, can't click into vac dates, lack of viewing permissions, custom fields have to be completed after onboarding, manager cannot override vacation in probation period

Collage checked a lot of the boxes I wanted from a program

2018-01-16

Support team has been very helpful and get back in a timely manner

Pros

employees are comfortable using it; easy to set up; employee onboarding is easier; employee offboarding checklist helpful ; easier to track and identify company assets that employees have; calendar view of everyone's holidays helpful

Cons

when doing some manual update to files, if you are on the 2nd page of employees and save, it brings you back to page 1 and you have to goto page 2 again.

Simple, clean, basic HRIS - perfect for SMB's!

2017-12-15

- great features for the price-point, perfectly serves a SMB that doesn't need enterprise-level HRIS software - very basic without comprehensive set of features, although they take feedback seriously and are making constant improvements!

Pros

- clean and easy to use as a user or admin - employee "self serve" or "self enrolment" options to enter their own info - integrates seamlessly with benefits provider - mobile-friendly

Good experience with a helpful tool

2017-08-02

Everything centralized in one place, better time off tracking, easier to track reviews.

Pros

Simple, clean design with the features that we need.

Cons

A few features such as the calendar function don't work well with our cloud environment and some other features like the time off policy and PTO calendar editing permissions are a little inflexible for our needs but we have found workarounds.

Excellent employee onboarding experience

2018-02-06

HR Compliance

Pros

Hiring employees, signing employment agreements and ensuring all the right information is collected during the onboarding process is now a snap!

Cons

I wish the documents feature had a "Sort" function so documents can be sorted by name or by date, to improve search capabilities.

Collage is everything we had hoped for in a HR program; as a small not for profit it met our needs.

2017-10-23

Saves time; processes information; supports staff.

Pros

Functionality; we have already used it for 'on-boarding' new staff and it works like a dream. We have set up all of our systems on Collage including HR policies, offer letters etc.

Cons

Taking time off and tracking it, is an area that we need help in; the vacation, sick days function is very good, bu t there are days that staff work overtime and we need to track that including permission and approvals.

Great for a free HRIS, not worth paying for

2018-06-01

Pros

- Easy to track multiple team members - Vacation was easy for team members to input and for the HR team to track - Everything was easily searchable, findable and usable - The best HRIS we have found, especially when it was free -

Cons

- They have recently become a paid service, was originally free - Wish there was more options to integrate and administer payroll - Still sends me reminders and updates even though we no longer use them.

Collage is a perfect fit for our needs. I'm impressed with quality of customer support!

2017-06-08

Pros

Updates and new features are proposed on a real regularly basis.

Cons

As is a new product, some features are missing, but since I started working with Collage a lot of the missing features have been developed or are in their backlog. Collage team is also really interested in our feedback.
