CakeHR Software


 

CakeHR offers an integrated time and attendance package that allows employers to schedule employee shifts and track employee absences and vacation days. The system is entirely Web-based, which means employees and managers can access it from any device with an Internet connection, no matter where they are.

With CakeHR, each employee has an individual login that allows them to access the system. Employees can view the number of days they have accrued for vacation, and request time off within the system. Once done, their request is sent to their manager. The manager can either approve or deny the request, and a notification is automatically sent to the employee.

In addition to allowing employees to request time off, they can also view a shared time-off calendar that shows them which of their co-workers will be out of the office. Meanwhile, managers can easily track when employees currently on leave will return to work.

Ease of use - Cake works well on all my Apple devices, including smartphone.

As english is not my native language, sometimes I feel that I need some translation. But overall this isn't a big deal.

Recommendations

You can start from the basic plan and then upgrade your subscription as you grow.

Cake is " A piece of cake " to use!

My experience with Cake HR has been nothing positive. The layout of the software is very good to the eye and it is easy to request for days off. I like how the request goes directly to the immediate person you are reporting to and can receive email notifications once approved. All in all, Cake HR is wicked!

It has been several months of using Cakehr and all i can say is that i really really love the system. Very easy to use, has reduced our paperwork and printing costs especially since employees request for their leave online, onboarding is so much easier now that each of the us knows what is expected of them when a new employee arrives. I CANNOT fail to mention how happy we were when cakehr(Lee) allowed us to use the system free of charge in November and Dec 2016 since our budget didn't allow us to pay then. In addition, they discounted 2017 subscription by 2 months!!! Why should i shopped anywhere else when cakehr has been this good!!!
Sadly though, am yet to settle 2017 subscription but i endeavor to very soon. Thank you Cakehr!

Cake is a great tool to manage an office. Since we have started using it we have nothing but great experiences with it. The support team is great and very quick to respond. I wish I required more of its functionality because it would make my life that much easier! I would definitely recommend it.

Pros

Ease of use, user interface, support. All around it is a great product.

Cons

I wish some of the reports were more customized to what I need but it is quite minor and I can get by without it very easily.

Advice to Others

Keep on doing a great job taking care of the customers!

Our scout for the best product stopped after we found cake.hr. It's the best value for money product out there. Couple that with best customer support, your search for a HR software ends there. Obviously they need to quickly load it with more features that are essential, but I do see these guys moving in that direction

Pros

value for money

Cons

Only 60-70% of the required features are out there

While using CakeHR as a tool for absences, I found out that it is also a good start for newcomers to the team, as it allows a first intro with the team, through the team directory. Moreover, you can get reports about everything or everyone. Finally, the most important thing is that new features are added constantly, making you feel that it gets more and more customized to your team's needs.

As a relatively new user it took me quite a bit of time to figure out where everything was and what features the software offered. The menus are not that intuitive as compared to many other online-based business software packages.

Pros

Lots of features

Cons

Not intuitively easy to navigate

Advice to Others

Try first before committing - it may not be for you if you are a small company or non profit

Cake is phenomenal. Fire your HR director and get Cake HR. A great platform for housing all things HR related and an incredibly intuitive and easy program to manage time-off. LOVE it.

Pros

Intuitive, easy, mobile app, implementation with Google Calendar.

Cons

Nothing yet.

Advice to Others

Keep up the great work! If I were to design an HR software it would look and feel exactly like cake.

An important part of our work culture is flexibility. Cake HR has helped us manage our time off, work from abroad, work from home, and sick days policies in a very easy way, without taking time from managers, and giving transparency inside the company.

Pros

Easy to setup.
Even gives you an organizational chart as you add everyone with their reporting lines.
Integrates with Google Apps.
Easy approval of time-off requests with one click from email.
Dedicated customer support.

Cons

Some of our policies were a bit tricky to setup (non US nor European company).
