Personio

I believe that Personio really helps us to become a better company on the operational side of things. Also, they really listen to what you have to say. Personio is under constant development and since it is a SaaS product, new and useful features will pop up all the time as part of your SaaS plan.

Pros

I like the UI. Most of it is self-explanatory and specific topics can also be found by entering a search term, for instance "notification", into a Google type search window. Personio's implementation team has some really bright people who understand what your needs are. I think we had 6 video calls over a period of six weeks. They help companies with the implementation because a lot can go wrong: users getting to little or too many access rights, workflows not defined properly, data not imported correctly etc.

Cons

Sometimes there are global system outages. Also, synchronisation with the Outlook calendar is a bit bumpy.

A very good decision I am still proud of

Difficult. I like it! Had some experience with Workdays in the company before and was at the beginning a kind of sad that little business has not the budget for such software. But now I am even happier because Personio not only is quiete as good - it is even better for small business purpose because it's less complex and allowes to stremline processes better for our needs.

Pros

It's HR Software with service for every employee, managers etc. - and so what I like most is, that nearly everybody likes to use it though we did not have much training effort. Big benefit (usualy) is as well, that Personio has an ongoing development nad gets even better every month.

Cons

Some "improvements" - especially in design - are not really steps forward but seem to complicate work - but usually respective suggestions are heared and drawn into account.

Reasons for choosing Personio

Originally becasue Personio was the only Provider with servers lokated in Germany (it was the time of the new data protection rules). And it was real SAS while one of the other products (the European one) would have to be customized with big effort (and costs)...

Userfriendly

Love it! The Sales Manager and Implementation Manager were very helpful

Pros

The software is easy to use and all the most important aspects of HR can be portrayed in Personio. All employee data can be stored there safely. Also, Personio provides helpful webinars and lots of additional materials such as document templates, employee surveys, and best practices for any topics which are very helpful.

Cons

The Recruiting part is maybe a bit less intuitive compared to other software that specialize in Recruiting

Reasons for choosing Personio

Because it has good reviews and a strong reputation and because I used it in previous companies.

Basics fehlen (immer noch), Fokus auf Entwicklung von Features mit Prio ?

Wir waren total happy, als wir Personio damals bekommen hatten (von Null Software auf Personio), junges start-up, optisch cool, Basis Features da, super netter Support - aber auch da schon mit Einschränkungen (was aber bei dem Preis ok war). Was man sagen muss - sie entwickeln wie die Weltmeister, was man aber auch in letzter Zeit sagen muss: nicht immer wird's besser - und vor allem wird es erheblich teurer und das bei fehlenden Features, die einfach jede andere HR-Software standardmäßig hat und ich kann jetzt zwar elektronisch Dinge unterschreiben lassen, erfahre aber grundlegende Dinge aus meinem System nicht, weil halt an Basics nicht weiter gearbeitet wird. Fakt ist auch: im HR-Bereich gibt es viele Unternehmen, die eben noch nicht ganz neumodisch sind und gewisse Dinge benötigen, auf die geht das junge Team nicht ein: großes Minus ist auch die unflexible Vertragslaufzeit - da sind andere Anbieter besser Statt sich also permanent von anderen durch teuren (und teils unnötigen) Schnick-Schnack abheben zu wollen: schaut Euch HR-Arbeit an und arbeitet an den Basics

Pros

ganz klar: Optik-Sieger - sehr intuitiv, gute Darstellung (wobei in letzter Zeit insbesondere im Bewerbermanagement für meine Begriffe verschlimmbessert wurde) super war der Implementierungsprozess über mehrere Wochen und kleine Schritte Mein Favorit ist das Abwesenheitsmanagement - für MA super einfach zu bedienen

Cons

Fakt ist: es fehlen z. T. immer noch die HR-Basics - wenn ein MA ein Dokument hochlädt, erfahre ich es nicht, ich kann keine Kommentare, Aufgaben oder sonst irgendetwas im System hinterlegen ohne meiner Kollegin Dinge ohne eine zusätzliche Mail mitzuteilen; wenn jemand Überstunden in Urlaub umgewandelt hat und krank wird, muss man die Stunden manuell wieder gutschreiben etc. pp (das geht bei kleinen Firmen noch, ab einer gewissen Größe...keine Chance). Einige Funktionen funktionieren seit einiger Zeit mal und mal nicht; seit der Serverumstellung auf einen anderen Provider immer mal wieder technische Probleme; manch hinterlegte Kontigentregel entwickelt nach 2 Jahren ungeahntes Eigenleben...auch eingestellte Berechtigungen gehen mal und mal nicht (Achtung: wenn Leute Dinge sehen die sie nicht sehen sollen...)

Reasons for choosing Personio

aufgrund der Firmenpolitik war das Thema HR-Software kritisch gesehen (vom Mutterhaus), daher haben wir uns für eine zu dem Zeitpunkt günstige und schnell implementierbare Version entschieden

Review of 1 year with personio

all colleagues have an overview about their personal data and HR documents, they can see the absence of the team members (even with a exchange with our team calender) and the administration of holidays is quite easy.

Pros

It's really easy to use and implement the tool. And I really like the support material - you can find very good articles about each topic and question and if I cannot find the answer there - I get quick help from the support team

Cons

some features are only provided on the basic level - but telling it to the support can help, one of my issues is now solved and a new standard in the protfolio. but it would be great to have the possibility to set a date when I want to send a message to a applicant.
