PeopleHR Review

2018-07-27

Would like to see better API integration with the tool to either input or extract data from the platform.

Pros

Ease of use and the ability to allow our employees to use this platform both on site and with us at customer locations.

Cons

We sometimes find entering in timesheets can be long winded and take more time than traditional Excel timesheets.

People HR, solid could do more...

2017-08-15

I'm sure some of my cons can be resolved and further training on the system would improve my knowledge. People Hr has the potential to be a non corporate HR system but is in-between at the minute.

Pros

It provides a clear structure for a HR user to input employee data It has the ability to group employee data from a wide range of sources and information to get a complete view of an individual Sections such as the logbook are bespoke and can be edited to create your own forms and data capture There are self service options so line managers and employees can update their personal data

Cons

Feels less real time chat and more like an email function

Found that PHR it quite boxy, and it's not as easily tailored to those who do not have a have a straight forward company structure.

Pros

Queries update automatically.

Not suited for recruitment companies who may have 1 employee work on many different projects at once (hard to track their history).

Response from Ranjit


Hi Nmeli,

Thank you for submitting your review on software advice. I would love the opportunity to discuss your comments with you. I can provide you with with our up time figures, I can also discuss with you the conversations that you have had with our support staff, whereby they have provided you with answers to all of your questions. I can also discuss with you, our different plans, which provide different functionality for each type of customer, this plan structure allows companies to pick and choose what they require so that they do not have to have every piece of functionality switched on.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards

Ranjit

Great & full of feature HR application for all business type

2018-03-26

Pros

It has the features from recruitment, training, review, and resignation checklist, all of these features are connected with each other.

Cons

Also, there's no direct link to each feature/data, so it will be difficult to share a link with another HR team.

Intuitive & time saving!

2017-06-28

Time saving & great reporting.

Pros

There are many features that we don't use as we are currently a smaller company (5 employees) but the ones we do are great.

Cons

The tasks system designed to encourage your learning journey as a user of People HR isn't quite as useful as it might be - needs improving.

Easy to use HR system in the mid-price range

2018-05-18

The team have been really helpful along the way from choosing the system to implementation and on-going support. If I move companies and need to choose a HR system again from scratch I'd definitely consider PeopleHR

Pros

Easy to use, quite self explanatory, videos are quite helpful.

Cons

Individuals can't add lieu time to be authorised by their manager, HR have to do it via a 'work around' so they can request the time off.

A good software to use. Ver useful to the HR team for payrol

Pros

This helps to monitor employee, useful for all HR activities, Easy and user-friendly, and the turn around time to resolve the optimization is very less We get full support and I have come across very less downtime

Cons

The live chat executives strength is very low, every time when there is a reported bug, we should contact the Live chat team to understand.

An excellent economic solution to our HRM administration.

2017-09-05

Both the sales, implementation and customer service staff are friendly, knowledgeable and really can't do enough to help you.

Pros

Ability for employees and managers to self service holiday and absence management.

Cons

Some limitations. Mainly functionality between the app and desktop. Expenses app only, but timesheets are desktop only :-/ However PeopleHR are constantly listening and making improvements with an 'ideas' website that allows users to make suggestions and vote on suggestions made by other people.

Brought me into the 21st Century

2017-12-20

Love the software, love the support and I have already recommended the software to a couple of local recruitment agencies as they are looking to modernise too.

Pros

Great reports and statistics available too which helps with end of year holiday planning.

Cons

Having to manually add my employees history is going to be a big task as all our records were paper based.

People HR is my favourite toy

2017-06-23

PeopleHR are also open to any suggestions of how to improve the site, and may take those on board. The support team are great at getting back to you on any queries.

Pros

Great visual dashboard. So easy to move about the system.

Cons

It would be good if we could select what columns appear when you click on the employees tab. For us, the payroll number would be a useful column, without having to go through to the employees record to look that up.

Very user-friendly system

2018-04-11

PeopleHR is a great system and all employees find it very easy to use.

Pros

PeopleHR is a very user-friendly system and it both the HR team and the employees can work with it comfortably, without any prior training.

Cons

It would be beneficial if there was a whole new section about probations/reminders/outcomes (instead of having to use Logbook)

PeopleHR has come a long way!

2015-07-21

Pros

* The interface is excellent - very easy to use, no training required for my employees. * Fresh and new - I look forward to their system updates as they're constantly adding new things.

Cons

* Holiday tracking - you can't assign employees different holiday years (not everyone in our company has the same start/end to their holiday year) which may mean we need to go elsewhere for holiday tracking as we've had to revert to an Excel document to track half of our employees; also, if an employee leaves a comment when requesting a holiday in the system, it doesn't show up in emails, which means the manager has to log into the system to see if the employee left a comment * ATS - wish there was a way to collaborate more on here (e.g.

PeopleHR streamline's Immense's HR function and appears to be a scalable solution to complement our company growth aspirations

2017-09-04

Pros

The ATS feature allows us to track vacancies and applicants through our recruitment campaign - something we didn't have in place beforehand

Cons

Built-in reports are useful (like overall holiday bookings) but don't allow you to click in to overall stats to get a breakdown (i.e. show outstanding holiday bookings by employee). Also sometimes some error messages are not explained enough - for example until I contacted help via online chat (which was very good) it was unclear why a combination of holiday and other event bookings wasn't being accepted (turned out as it was half day to one and half day to another they had to end / start at 1:30 which wasn't clearly indicated)

Brilliant

2017-06-28

Since first joining the company imported all our information and were all helpful in showing myself how to use everything.

Pros

Staff have found it easy to request holidays and know when their colleagues are away Reports are easy to run and can build your own report Reminders of staff birthdays

Cons

Not having a 'management team' group so they are able to see everyone's holidays in the business and their personal information

Great HRIS System!

2017-10-05

Pros

PeopleHR reps respond very quickly (less than 24 hours) - User friendly for employees and the employer - Great system to maintain EE records, ATS, run report etc.

Cons

Every entry including the first entries are changes -System doesn't allow for public holidays to be half days (Some days in the U.S are given as half days to employees) -ATS doesn't show which recruiter made a change.

Reliable platform for HR deparment

Pros

Provides all key options to support HR functions. Applicant tracking, employee tracking and more.

Help & customer service, second to none. Really intuitive software, with lots of extras - they obviously spend a lot of time asking their customers what they'd like

2018-07-23

I have found the time it takes for an PeopleHR staff member to get in touch if I've emailed or requested help really quick, this makes a massive difference to our organisation.

Pros

So many extra functions & reporting for the future as we grow as a company.

Cons

It would be good if it linked in via an API to Quickbooks, but it is quickbooks that don't offer an API.

People is a straight-forward and inexpensive service for managing HR needs in your business.

2018-03-11

There are REST APIs that we are starting to use to allow for anything "non-standard" and these are starting to be used in our organisation.

Pros

There are some use and "fun" metrics that you can take away about your company from the dashboard. Line managers receive regular alerts about their teams.

Cons

Timekeeping for employees is flexible, but actually recording time is long-winded. The UI is simple and straightforward in some areas, but feels a little awkward in others
