It was not good for a large organization

Reviewed 2 months ago
Pros

To be honest, they have improved a lot since the last time I used the platform. Probably the part I liked the most was the Employee profile

Cons

The platform was not very estable when you have too many employees on it. But I used few years ago, I am sure that they have fixed a lot of the old issues

Easy Staff Managment Through Factorial

Reviewed 7 months ago

As of now, the Factorial Application is running smoothly and meeting all desired expectations in my business unit. Staff is much pleased with the software as they no longer need to visit my office to submit their leave forms physically as the application enables them to request these through the system. Likewise, never missed my tasks and not had any arguments with my subordinates with regard to their day-offs. All the above achievements emerged thanks to Factorial Software. You will never regret owning this software because this will help to save your human assets in the company.

Pros

One of the best aspects of the Factorial app is its handy Dashboard. This provides a great helicopter view to senior staff with regard to identifying many activities such as upcoming events, pending tasks, upcoming holidays, and community posts. The Dashboard is in blocked shape with enlarged text, which helps users to quickly capture the eyes of the user without missing any activity! Furthermore,...

Cons

So far, I did not experience any issues, since I have been using limited features yet but there are many other areas to capitalize on. There are abundant capabilities this App has but I am yet to experience any misbehaves of this app. In a nutshell, there are literally zero issues for me as of now!

Factorial for our changing process

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use to make the payrolls with a company and for me this process was terrible, was that time of the month when i really not wanted to be on. Now all this process is really easy and the communication with payroll staff is vry clear and fluid so any doubt it´s solved at the moment.

Pros

What we like the most was how easy is understand the platform and used. There´s no one who can not be able to find what they need or registered in the platform. How easily is complete the payroll process and how attent are the payroll staff. That i can use the platform for more than just one use, as example: payroll, recruitment, as documentary, to share documents with the employees, etc...

Cons

What i like least is that in the lead product that i think is the payroll i mis some usabilities as do changes directly in the payroll when are ready, like last minute changes that make the process return to scratch. Will be more easy if i can do it online. I really miss create differents document folders. I think that right now you have it but it´s a differente package.

FACTORIAL en BYTEMASTER

Reviewed 2 months ago

Unificar la documentación de todas las personas, y sobre todo ganar tiempo todos por la forma de introducir la información y realizar las operaciones de la gestión.

Pros

El diseño del Portal, la parrilla de eventos, las notificaciones de cumpleaños, el control horario, la gestión ausencias y además la nueva aplicación de gastos genera muchas expectativas por el ahorro de tiempo de todos.

Cons

Los informes son difíciles de manejar y no son nada amigables, voy a dar una idea, mi propuesta es realizar una integración con productos de terceros como el Qlik o PBI.

All hr information Conected in one platform

Reviewed 2 years ago

for me it is a great HR Platform, because you can manage everything in one tool! even if you are from the HR Department, or an user (employee) that self manage their neccesities.

Pros

it's easy to use. to ask for a free day it's quick, because your manager receive an alert to be approved or denied, you can control the schedules of all the employees, vacations, the exact hours an employee has worked. Also, all the information of all the employees in one hand.

Cons

I think it is necessary to find another way to control attendance, either by synchronizing with a work tool to avoid forgetting to record worker attendance. In my case, I had to set a daily alarm to remember to fill it.

Easy to use, nice user interface

Reviewed 2 years ago

It has only been a short period but so far the service has been excellent and we are happy with the product in general. It is still quite simple and some complexity needs to be added regarding historical data and the employee journey but this feedback has been shared and is being actioned.

Pros

The day-to-day operational features are easy for users and administrators. Eg. clock-in, time off, employee directory, org chart, viewing and sharing documents, announcements, etc.

Cons

The product is still in its early stages. It needs more depth regarding employee historical data (eg. changes of position and manager). The reporting could be a bit more automated but the Customer Success team has been very useful to guide regarding any doubts.

Factorial for IT

Reviewed 2 years ago

The "problem" that this has solved is abiding by the Spanish law implemented last year for employees to clock in daily working hours. If we get an inspection, thanks to Factorial, we Will not have any problems. It is also easy for our travelling consultants to clock in wherever they may be worldwide.

Pros

It is easy to use and as the administrator it is easy for me to see if employees are clocking in their hours and chase them if they are not. Also if one forgets to clock in one day it is easy to fill in the hours afterwards. I believe the payslips and time off work well (from a friend who uses it in his company) but we have our own system internally so I do not use this personally. Also when I have had an issue client services get back to me very quickly.

Cons

Can´t think of anything that I do not like about it.

La forma más fácil de realizar la gestión administrativa de RRHH

Reviewed 2 years ago

Muy buena, lo llevamos usando años y tanto en la dirección como en el equipo están muy contentos, sobre todo en la contabilización de los días de vacaciones.

Pros

En Lola Market lo usamos para gestionar el calendario de vacaciones, para eso es perfecto! para el tracking del control horario y usarlo como sistema de performance reviews le queda trabajo por delante.

Cons

El tracking del control horario, se hace muy tosco tener que hacerlo día a día. Igual algún tipo de extensión para Sack o de navegador que te recuerde hacer el checkin en lugar de hacerlo entrando a la plataforma mejoraría el uso.

Una soluzione si trova sempre

Reviewed 5 months ago

Sono molto soddisfatta di questi primi mesi, la qualità del mio lavoro sta nettamente migliorando e riesco ad avere un approccio più ordinato e data driven. Il vero valore aggiunto è stata la mia referente [CONTENUTO SENSIBILE] che mi ha insegnato a utilizzare il software e ad apprezzarlo fino in fondo, trasmettendomi la sua passione. [CONTENUTO SENSIBILE] si è dimostrata sempre molto attenta e comprensiva delle nostre necessità e molto smart nel trovare sempre una soluzione

Pros

Factorial è un software facile, altamente personalizzabile e completo. Permette una gestione a 360 gradi di quelle che sono le attività standard nella gestione del personale ma credo che il vero valore aggiunto sia dato dalla possibilità di iniziare a costruire una reale Experience per prendersi cura dei propri dipendenti.

Cons

Difficile rispondere, abbiamo sempre trovato, insieme alla mia referente, un modo per realizzare le nostre necessità.

Terrible customer service

Reviewed 8 months ago
Pros

A lot of features and options for HR management.

Cons

Factorial has a lot of features and options, however it is very hard to use and implement. The customer service is one of the worst I have ever encountered: they simply do not reply to anything. It was very hard to schedule a meeting with their sales team in order to get a proposal to start working with them. That was almost 3 months ago and I still did not receive the proposal. Also, they have good features, but it is hard to implement and start working, and since customer service is so bad, I'm not even sure how we'd set them up.

Organising and bringing team together!

Reviewed 2 years ago

Every part of the process has been great: The onboarding, support and the constant available videos, articles and content really prove that Factorial are the best in the sector!

Pros

What I like most about Factorial is obviously how user friendly it is for our employees, our team managers and ourselves as administrators. This is not only useful for organising fair time off for holidays but it also allows team members to check in on who and when fellow colleagues are here - therefore helping them plan projects etc. The social side: making visible different events on the dashboard such as team outings, birthdays, events etc..

Cons

How we currently are using Factorial, all the features are apt for us.

Nuovo passo per la gestione HR

Reviewed 3 months ago

Ci ha permesso di centralizzare la gestione dei documenti e creato un rapporto diretto tra dipartimento HR e dipendenti dimezzando le email di contatto. Ha snellito la compilazione dei timesheet mensili e il conteggio ore. Ha rafforzato il senso di appartenenza tra lavoratori ormai tutti in smartworking.

Pros

E' un software "familiare" da subito, sia lato amministratore che lato dipendente. Oltre che aiutare nella gestione HR a vari livelli, ci ha permesso di lavorare sul senso di appartenenza aziendale grazie alla Dashboard. Ottima l'assistenza per ogni dubbio o problema!

Cons

Qualche problema sul lato ATS ancora troppo basic.

Pros

We use Factorial for Time tracking holiday compensation & tracking Team availability & holiday schedules Office information Those features we are using are working very well and are very easy to use, as an end-user but also on the administration part. Using a cloud-based solution is definitively the best approach.

Cons

We have seen some periods where the application was out-of -service We need to be able to add hours of holidays (for compensation of extra-hours) and the product is limiting us to half-days

Better Options for HR Systems

I wouldn't personally recommend but it may have improved. I wouldn't want to pay for the product.

Pros

Cheap and very budget-friendly. ok for small headcount

Cons

I used the free version before they charged for the service. It was developed outside the UK (spain) so some parts weren't translated well. It wasn't able to handle shifts and varying patterns and was very basic.

GREAT! You need to improve customer services / services desk sometime tickets get loss.

Pros

the UX/ UI, how easy is to start with setting and documents to be uploaded.

When a release is done, we experience several bugs and then we need to figure our what happens. Time tracking, we can't add different work schedules, besides 40-20 hours, e.g. we don't have m-t full day and Friday half day. Signature process som time is quite complicated, I know all this things are a work in progress, and so far I really like / love your solution!

User-friendly HR software

Reviewed 7 months ago
Pros

I like Factorial as it's a very simple and intuitive software. From the employee perspective, I think it's pretty valuable because all the documents are arranged in an orderly manner, and it's possible to upload files both from laptop and mobile devices. The dashboard gathers all the relevant information in one place so it's super easy to stay up to date with the events of the company.

Cons

I haven't tried yet the integration with LinkedIn because Factorial is currently working to release an update, and I am really curious to examine this aspect (as a marketing executive, it's important to me that I can link the two platforms in order to enhance employee engagement)

Implementación Factorial en Graphenstone

Reviewed 2 years ago

Pues ha sido una experiencia bastante buena, ya que, me hace ganar tiempo para otras actividades del departamento. Los empleados están contentos y le facilitan las tareas relacionados con el portal del empleado.

Pros

Pues la facilidad del interfaz tanto en la app como en la web. Para los empleados es muy cómodo registrar la jornada y pedir algún tipo de permiso retribuido.

Cons

Hicimos la integración con LinkedIn hace un par de semanas y todavía no se ha implementado correctamente. Desconozco si es por tiempo de estudio por parte de LinkedIn pero no hemos podido todavía enlazarlo. También echo en falta tener una pestaña personalizable para la empresa, donde poder poner un buzón de sugerencias por ejemplo.
