Fiona McArthur

Octopus HR / Cascade Go - SME professional services firm

2017-04-07

Good cloud-based and self service software.

Pros

The self service elements are excellent and are employees picked up using a self-serve HRIS well and without a lot of teething problems.

Cons

We are still struggling to use payroll features for seamless payroll integration.

Terrible Customer Service

2019-04-05

The front end user experience is great however the back end is too limiting and the customer service received from CascadeGo is dreadful!!

Pros

Easy to use front end for staff, visually appealing compared to other systems

Cons

Very basic, no workflow functionality and reporting facilities are basic - not how it was sold!

Does its job

2019-08-02

Satisfactory

Pros

Had all the available data as an employee user. Was a great central hub for all of my HR relevant information (days off, sick leave, holidays, employment contracts, pay scheme, etc.).

Cons

The menu layout wasn't the most intuitive. I used this up until recently for about 2 years, and even after 2 years of use I still had to go digging for things.

I must contact customer service on a daily basis asking questions and get a very quick response with brilliant guidance.

Pros

Visually its very simplistic and ease of use

Our company is encouraging managers to self service but I can only find help guides for the Administrators.

Response from Octopus


Thanks for your great feedback Kelly.

We're working on some user guide videos from an employee's point of view, they should be available soon, will let you know when they've launched.

Fantastic Product and Service

2015-09-16

Pros

It has made my life so much easier and automates much of the admin that used to take up my time. I've found it easy to use, the roll-out to our staff was been easy too.

Cons

Only thing I'd say is that it's so in depth that it can take some effort to understand everything.

It's a really really deep system. You get tonnes of functionality and great support. There are cheaper systems out there so if you want something lightweight that's cheap and will work while your headcount is small then maybe look elsewhere.

User friendly with top notch support!

2016-04-29

Pros

Being able to centralise everything in to one system is ideal for a company of our size. It gives us visibility of the details we need at all levels whilst also being user friendly for all users.

Cons

Even when there have been the odd tricky bits, they have always been resolved. Exports on more of the analytical information could be "punchier" in graph styles, although admittedly I have not had to use these functions to their fullest so this may just be may limited experience.

If you want everything in one place but still allowing managers and employees access and ownership over things, this is a great system. If you are a bigger business who needs analytical tools then definitely check if the exports and reports will do what you need them to, again I haven't made full use of this side of things so I couldn't be entirely sure of the possibilities.

HR for a small startup

2015-11-30

Pros

As a small company we didn't want to spend a lot of time familiarising ourselves with lots of functionality that we might not need, but Octopus was easy to use and easy to show others within the company how to use the features that are most useful to us.

Cons

We had to invest in an initial training session, we had hoped we could pick it up from just a couple of online videos but to be honest, we're glad to have done the training as it's so in-depth and really worth it.

Use the free trials, and use them in a way that fits that fits your business then you'll be able to see the advantages of this over other suppliers offering 'similar' functionality.

Great software choice

2011-07-22

This is a comprehensive piece of software that caters for all HR requirements

Pros

It does everything we need it to

Cons

It takes a little investment time to begin with to become familiar with it and get it set up, but to be honest no decent piece of business software or equipment is without the need to spend some time in the early days so I don't begrudge this.

THEY WERE VERY GOOD AT CONTACTING ME BEFORE I SIGNED UP

Pros

THE ACTUAL PROGRAMME WAS OK BUT TRAINING NOT COMPLETE

Cons

THE INITIAL SOFTWARE THEY CREATED FOR OUR COMPANY WAS OK BUT THE TIME SHEETS WHICH I SIGNED UP FOR DID NOT MATERIALISE
