Kin HR Feature Reviews

12 reviewers had the following to say about Kin HR's features:

Steve B.

The right tool for our Small Business

2016-08-17

Plank switched over the Kin in May 2014. The Kin team made the process painless and trouble-free. Kin seemed like the right type of solution for us. We have on average 13 active users, and we use about 80% of the features offered. We were a bit worried with a SaaS solution, but the product has been rock solid with almost no issues and zero unscheduled downtime. After 2 years we're still extremely happy.

Pros

Great employee records; sane and easy to use time-off management; a method to keep notes on reviews and goals; a clean, friendly and simple design; excellent customer support with quick turn around times for questions.

Cons

Being in Canada, we wish there was a bit more tie-in to our countries rules and regulations around typical HR tasks.

Great experience!

2016-08-09

We moved to KIN HR to consolidate our onboarding system and manage our time off - it's been a great experience from the UI experience to the customer service.

Pros

It's easy to use, intuitive, and they're always coming out with new, better features.

Cons

Can't think of much, though I'm eager for them to integrate a more in-depth performance review process.

One-stop employee resource tool

2016-11-18

We are a small company with a dozen employees. KinHR not only allows us to track our personal time off efficiently, it keeps all of those necessary employee files in one location.

Pros

One-stop place for everything!

Cons

And sometimes employees don't know exactly where to put their responses.

I just spoke to Lindsay - I am hoping you guys add a time clock in the near future. With the new overtime rule taking affect on Dec 1, this feature would be handy to have.

Make sure you make a plan before diving into the software. It's simple to use, but is very powerful. I have found that if I create a solid plan before implementing into KIN, my confidence level is super high.
