The best value for money, where HR processes get automated very quickly and user friendly.

Pros
It is very adjustable, features are updated each week with increasing functionality, accessible customer support, very friendly pricing.

Cons
Bugs. With such a speed in new releases it is almost inevitable that bugs pop up. New customer onboarding could be improved with clear guidelines. Knowledge base with instructions of use could be more informative. System could offer basic templates for all modules (survey, onboarding, offboarding etc)

Response from HR Bakery


Hello,

We very much appreciate your feedback!
I am sure you have also noticed how fast our developers fix a bug if one occurs :) As for the onboarding, I would be very grateful if you can contact me directly and share what can be improved, what information or steps you felt were missing during your onboarding process.
Unfortunately, I can not guarantee that we will have templates for surveys available any time soon, due to the reason that different companies have different needs, therefore we try to keep all the features fully customizable. We are always giving as many examples as possible during the onboarding process, however, if you feel some additional information is needed, do not hesitate to contact us through the chatbox that is available on your desktop and app. What I can promise is that we will have our knowledge base updated any time soon, meanwhile, as I have already mentioned, please use the chatbox, we are always here and happy to help!

With thanks,

Response from HR Bakery


Dear Natalie,

Thank you for bringing this to our attention!

Once transferring 51-200 employee org chart to A4 format, you, unfortunately, will end up with a document that is in an unusable state. We are looking into this issue, but if you already figured out the perfect solution, we would be thrilled if you whisper it to us :))

All in all, there will be some updates in regards to the org. chart any time soon, I'll keep you informed!

We've been using CakeHR for two months and are satisfied for the product. Two shortcomings of the product are: individual workschemes for employees and better/more user friendly way of adding overtime.

Pros
Ease of use and price.

Cons
Lacking functionality for example adding overtime and individual/custom work schemes.

Response from HR Bakery


Hi Martins!

It is great to have you with us and I have great news for you in terms of overtime management of employees.

We're due to be launching this in just a couple of months - time sheets along with employee schedule planning will be a huge and powerful feature that will work alongside leave management to be the one-stop solution for employee time and leave management

Hello Jean-Christophe, thank you for your feedback. I am curious to learn how would you like to benefit from CakeHR as an HR Management System. There is more to CakeHR than creating excel-like reports and Calendar functionality.

Best HR tool for any business

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2019-01-18
Review Source: Capterra

Awesome! It's a great price and does everything you need without being overly complicated to get the hang of.

Pros
It's extremely easy to use and for our team to grasp as well. I love that it integrates with apps like slack so the whole team can see if colleagues are off sick or working remotely. The policies they allow you to set are very flexible and once it's setup, it just runs in the background and you don't have to worry about it.

Cons
Nothing. Honestly, I haven't found something I didn't really dislike yet. If I was to be really picky, I'd say that as a manager, it's not that easy to amend or add attendance records, but once you figure it out, it's fine. It does allow it, it's just one of the features that's less intuitive to use.

Cons
as we grow very fast our needs change, even tough the cake team did implement a few changes to also accommodate our needs some are not satisfied yet: option to choose a worktime pattern when adding new user complex leave policy setup with formula for holiday allowance based on i.e. (age, number of children etc.)

Review Source: Capterra

Although we are only a small company, we were trying to manually record our employees' holiday and sick leave as well as days in lieu, but found that we were losing track of vital information. CakeHR lets us keep all this information in an organised way, and lets our employees also keep track of their accrued allowances, as well as requesting leave in a more formal and organised manner.

Pros
I really liked the choice of price points, depending on the needs of your business. The user interface is also intuitive, and the calendar integrates well with Outlook.

Cons
The trial version didn't have New Zealand public holidays automatically included, so I had to add these manually.

Response from HR Bakery


Dear Nicole,

I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying your experience with CakeHR!
There are a lot of features we keep updating on a weekly basis and, probably thanks to you, now we have possibility to import also public holidays of New Zealand.
So now, for certain, you can refer us to your New Zealand friends and colleagues, we are all set :)

Pros
Shows how much holiday allowance is left in a straight forward manner. Very user friendly and simple to navigate around the site.

Cons
The price went up recently which isn't ideal as we're not getting more for our money. Probably could offer more things on the site.

Response from HR Bakery


Hi Liz

I hear your concerns about the price going up but without any new features.
The pricing increase was our first in 6 years - since CakeHR began. "plans" became legacy and we made the cost much more easier to manage. The problem with the plans was that you would essentially pay double for a new hire that would take you from Plus to Premium, for example.

That being said, this year, we're releasing the following:
Timesheets & Scheduling
Performance & Appraisal management
Expenses
Training
Applicant Tracking

All of the above whilst we are also improving on the current features! 2018 is going to be a hot year!

If you want to talk about the pricing more personally, I'm more than happy to make arrangements for that and make sure you value CakeHR and your company correctly.

For the price soft is very good. The most important part is what do you want from the soft? If employees time off tracking is on of the main reasons, then CakeHR is a perfect fit.

Pros
I like the most customer support (it's fast, helpful, plus, some things which I have mentioned, later I see in the soft which is great and let's the customer feel special :)

Cons
Access levels - the weakest part in this soft. Still waiting for new levels which I could share with HRs in our other offices. Also a bit disappointing is reporting part. Would like to make reports more specified, with more options than now.

Pros
View the employees inside the office at a moment is very and the customizable approvals for employee requests. These very simple features are helping in a huge way to enhance the achievements to be gained by the company. Since employee satisfaction is very important in a company. Dragging and dropping the employees inside the company to create teams is another valuable functionality because it's very easier to plan the current processes in the company. This application has a lot more pros than cons. Very easy to use and has a lot of functionalities which are useful to a company.

CakeHR - good product, even better service

Used weekly for 6-12 months
Reviewed 2018-11-16
Review Source: Capterra

Pros
As an SME we needed a platform for our HR. We reviewed most of the systems intended for a business for our size and CakeHR was the best price / value combination. Since taking it, we've found it to be useful, it's done the job we wanted. Best of all has been their customer service. When we've had a development request they've taken it seriously and, in most cases, added it. The product needs some further development, esp around appraisals. But we are happy with our choice and hope to stay with Cake for some time, especially if they remain as responsive as they've been to date.

Cons
It could be a bit easier to navigate. I sometimes have to get reminders on how to find certain parts of the platform.
