A Cloud Based HRM Application We Could Not Do Without

Reviewed 2015-02-24
Review Source: Capterra

We researched several HRM applications at the time we decided to transition away from our prior system. We weighed all options and made the decision to go with OrangeHRM. Pros: o Excellent customer support o Very easy and functional report generator application for ad-hoc reporting o Easy to use timesheet tracking built as module within the system o Leave tracking seemed to happen effortlessly o Extremely user friendly, pleasant interface both for staff and the company o Easy custom fields in addition to more complex customization options o Recruitment module o Performance Module for annual and 6 month new hire reviews o Very knowledgeable and helpful sales contact o Easy and intuitive navigation within the system o Fantastic training o Will soon have mobile application of their cloud-based software o Company is very open to client feedback o The portal is customized with your logo and colors so it has your branding Cons o It's hard to think of a con realistically, as if there is anything that we need to be done with the system, we know it can be addressed. The defaults may not be what we'd always like, but it's fine as we can modify it to meet out needs. So what may start out as a 'con' in this area turns into a 'pro' as in the end you have the system you'd like to have. o There is no integration with outside applications (i.e., payroll). This is not a con for us as we have no need for this - but for some companies seeking this, it is not part of this application's functionality. OrangeHRM doesn't try to be all things to all people like some HRM systems - which then end up being costly and much more complicated - but they have developed a solid HRM system with a very easy user interface for those companies looking for this. I would highly recommend at least exploring this solution when researching HRM options. This has been a fantastic decision for our company.

Simple and Complete HR Solution.

When in need for a specialized software in the work place and on a tight budget for SMB practices FLOSS software usually is my first avenue of exploration. Working as an IT consulting company for multiple vet clinics we were in need of a simple hr/time recording system that could be deployed within minutes and easy to maintain; something we found in OrangeHRM. We primarily use OrangHRM 3.1.1 for time sheets, attendance records and employee information. The ease of use for logging hours and pulling reports is dead simple and is easy to work with. Pros: - Easy install with multiple options and documentation available - Open source with options of paid support and hosting options - Consistent performance - Ease of use Cons: - Data backup is not built into the product (documentation for manual database backup/restoration available on forums) - Software updates are not performed from web console/gui - Feature sets limited to which product version utilized (most FLOSS products do this) - Reporting functions leave room to be desired Overall OrangeHRM is a fantastic product that can be easily deployed and setup within hours. With it's simple interface and user experience your office setups can greatly benefit from utilizing OrangeHRM. Keep in mind that if you are not paying for the hosted version/support you will need to take steps to ensure data backup policies and staying up to date with the software. Though this process is not difficult it is cumbersome and should be considered when weighing the costs and benefits in your decision making process.
