Pros

We have had a great experience so far with an easy and seamless transition. The on-boarding has been great.
However, it has been a wonderful experience, everyone was VERY helpful and patient with me during my learning curve.
Fits the most basic of needs at a good price. It would be better if online timesheets were better.

Pros

The phone app is good and will become even better. Benefits secured by Employment Hero are great and will be rolled out through several different programs in our business.
Easy to use, staff can have app on their phone which is brilliant. Great technical support service upon implementation, prompt responses and very helpful.
Hero shop gives us as small employers the same advantage as big business we can entice top employees to stay because they have the same benefits and discounts from the platform.

Cons

I had a horrible time setting it up in the beginning, and counted on them for a lot, which was set up incorrect.
One of things I dislike is that the navigation menus or tabs are often confusing.
We have been much more organized with our details around pay being kept in a central location.

Cons

There is no proper instructions on how to use it so there is no way you will be able to figure it out. Half the instructions they do have are wrong or outdated.
This has cost our company hugely in money and time to trouble shoot the constant issues and glitches, it would have been far easier and cheaper to do it manually.
Integration with payroll is still a little clunky - Admin/owner have duplicate file, ended employees show as errors. Payslips do not show annual leave balances.
