Overpromised in every way

2019-05-15

We feel like we've wasted a year of resources trying to make it work. Complaints fall on uncaring and slow to respond ears. There are some great features in OrangeHRM, but not much attention is given to the essentials. We are walking away before our 1 year contract is up.

Pros

OrangeHRM offers an on premise option if you prefer to keep your data in house. The mobile interface is nice and easy to use.

Cons

With the paid version we are only able to export timecards by person rather than in a batch for everyone.

Great for Medium size companies

2018-08-29

its a good tool for a small company, I don't see this tool being used by a multinational company, but its a good fit for small to mid size operations

Pros

OrangeHRM is a very intuitive software, basic management of your workforce, it has a simple way to show the information about your employees, personal and job data, loading the data is simple and the transactional part is not complicated at all, you can perform multiple transactions for your workforce, transfer departments, promotions, shift changes, review the hierarchy and id your employees in a simplistic way

Cons

integration with other applications require additional developments, and the technical support is a bit expensive. multi language support may be challenging.

Excellent facilitates the tasks related to the control, management and administration of personnel

2018-05-09

As a worker in the recruitment and selection area, she has allowed me to keep a list of job offers and to select personnel.

Pros

It facilitates the tasks collected in the life cycle of the employee. It helps to organize and manage the information of our personnel, simplifying many of the current processes.

Cons

A counter would be that: We must have a dedicated server, that is, a place to host the Orange HRM system
