CakeHR Software


 

CakeHR is a cloud-based human resource management solution that integrates core features like 360 feedback, workforce management, performance appraisal and attendance tracking with scheduling that supports time-off policies and black-out days.

Users get a bird’s eye view of key data points like their upcoming tasks, goals, leaves and expenses. The solution allows employees to access all options in 3 clicks or less.  

CakeHR provides tools that can automate repetitive tasks. Furthermore, sick leaves can be requested directly from the dashboard without initiating email chains.

Each employee has a separate login and access permission level to safeguard sensitive information. Tabs like benefits, documents and emergency can be hidden. A directory of company and team roles with organizational charts is included to define who does what.

Android and iOS apps are also available for download.

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.

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

It's great because all the operations that I performed manually I can execute them through this system. It is very simple to register and use it.

I would only like to improve the configuration part. Everything else seems very accessible to me. Congratulations!!

For a smaller business this is definitely a life saver.

Pros

CakeHR is really easy to use, has key features and the support is amazing. Booking time off is simple and we can keep track of all leaves to make sure no gaps occur. It's worth every penny- a really financially comfortable software for smaller companies, that usually have less useful options.

Cons

A few improvements based on our experience: changing file names would be a great addition, a reminder function that can be customized, more options for data to be included for each employee.

The interface is very user friendly and it's easy to set up permissions and organizational charts. Employees found it easy to ask for time off.

Cons

We kept finding errors in employee's time off records meaning that I manually had to figure time off when someone complained. Very annoying.

Hi Jahana, Thank you for taking your time to review CakeHR! :)
I am pleased that our HR solution is working for your previous organisation and has eased the running of daily errands to you and your employees.
We indeed had a few bugs in time off calculations about six months ago but since we not only address the issues by looking into specific cases but also review the impact for all users, we are confident that these issues occur on much fewer occasions.
I hope you are enjoying your new role and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions at all :)

We initially did our HR functions manually until our management introduced CakeHR. It is great because as an employee, I am able to apply for leaves online and track my leave balances. The system has introduced automation and efficiency in the HR functions.

Cons

From an employee perspective that interacts with cakeHR, I have not had any major disadvantages to report. It has worked great so far

I have not witnessed any cons during the period that I have used the software. For me it's the best HR management software for small businesses.

A big problem that I have been able to solve with CakeHR is that I receive email notifications of employees' free time requests and approve or reject them by the same email. This has made things easier for me.

Pros

What I like most when using CakeHR is the ease of registration and access; the function "history of changes made" to facilitate the tracking of changes in the data is very good; and when generating reports with a single click is wonderful.

Cons

A big disadvantage of CakeHR is that it integrates with payroll systems, but not with benefit portals or learning management systems. We are waiting for you to integrate all this.

Pros

it can house the basics of HR reporting, quite intuitive when you use it, support team takes time but they are generally very helpful and really helps to resolve cases

Cons

support team replies on time and sometimes takes time due to time difference, Lack of detailed reports, downloading of all employee basic info, data integrations to other platforms, further customization and visualisations of org chart and reports could be made better

We liked the ability to create many time off policies, the granular control of assigning different time off policies for different employees and who can approve whose time off.

Cons

Documents management could be way better. For starters, we would like the ability to rename files and not have their entire file names listed out. It would be great to be able to sort them into folders. And for employees to be notified of any file uploads. It really ought to behave more like a proper bulletin board and not be an afterthought.

Hi Benjamin, thank you for taking your time to submit the review, some very useful advise and ideas here! :)

With regards to Documents Management, couple of things are already in place - e.g. employee notification that a new doc has been uploaded.

All the other ideas are excellent and are now added to the pipeline, so please watch this space! :)

My biggest pain as CEO was to manage vacation and time-off requests by employees in an old fashioned parper, email, chat form. Now I just get a notification from Cake, that somebody wants to take time off and I just click confirm. Time saver, big time!

Cons

I want to still try out the new conditional tasks feature in Cake. Previously assigning tasks for employee onboarding was a bit messy.

It's an all-in-one HR tool that's presented simple, functional, and is well worth the price

Pros

It is very easy to use, replicates and automates a lot of different HR functions, and is very inexpensive for the price.

Functions are still limited at this stage and I've encountered difficulty in downloading some records.

One place for employee records

Pros

easy to track vacation time and sick days. I like having all the employee data in one place as opposed to a in a paper file

Cons

need reminders to enter data into Cake. Maybe once a week Cake reminds - any changes for your employees? They take sick days and I don't log it.

Team Cake HR has been very helpful in implementing and solving all the problems. Our employees have adopted the system very quickly

I'd like to see more integration with G Suite and GDrive. In some ways, it would be good to add more advanced settings. For example, more options for email notification settings. I would appreciate the possibility of importing data for some leave policies,

As a small business and only two (2) employees I was able to find a cost-effective solution for managing my employees.

Pros

It fulfils the critical requirements for managing Human Resource meaning a means for storing employee information , onboarding and offboarding features, time off management and a neat asset tracking module for assigning specific assets to employees.

Cons

Well the software does not have an attendance tracking feature, however I understand that this feature is in the pipeline.
