CakeHR Software


 

CakeHR offers an integrated time and attendance solution that allows employers to schedule employee shifts and track employee absences and vacation days. The system is cloud-based, which enables employees and managers to access it from any device with an internet connection.

With CakeHR, each employee gets 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. Managers can also track when employees currently on leave will return to work.

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

The support is really great. On the odd occasion I've missed functionality on the system I have been able to contact support discuss it with them and have it added to their development road map. It's easy to manage and mostly intuitive.

Cons

The approval settings can sometimes be rather confusing however these are once off settings when adding a new employee.

It addresses many of our company's HR needs in an easy and user friendly way. It has greatly transformed the way we are working and people have embraced it.

Pros

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.

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.

Cons

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.

Our employees have adopted the system very quickly.

Pros

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

Cons

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.

Easy to track the leaves, goals, documents of every employee any time. Managing the goals and keeping the track of one on one, etc are good.

Pros

It is easy to use as it is linked to g-suite. Can check in anytime anywhere by using an app. Can access the details anytime.

Cons

UI. look wise should have been even better. Example Goals - Symbol should have been presented better.

We get all the information fast and secure in to one system from our employees. No need to look in different places or having a risk of loosing papers or receipts when someone had an expense to report.

Pros

Intuitive and very easy to use. Give managers and employees quickly a very good overview.
It can automate many task. We use is to plan ahead and also follow up, for onboarding and now also for expenses.

Cons

The one thing we are missing is that we like to be able to set employment status in %, and have a start date for the change and also be able to get a rapport that show these changes.
BUT since we haven't brought this to their attention yet it's on us.

Staff are happy that they can book request their holidays at any time and have almost instant approval in many cases.

Pros

Clean and user-friendly layout with amazingly helpful people behind the scenes. Lee, in particular, is incredibly helpful.

Cons

The only thing would be the lack of calendar view holiday on mobile app. We have an ever growing young workforce who book their holidays on the app but they are unable to see if other workmates have already booked time off.

Hi Craig!

Many thanks for your review and we have loved supporting you throughout implementation and beyond.

Right now, we're developing the calendar view for mobile which is really exciting. I'll let you know once it has been released!

-Super easy to use

-Great options (example, use of Assets and can track who is using what)
-Customizable to a required level

Cons

-Reporting could be better (team wise leave utilization reports for example) with a lot more options
-For teams based in multiple locations, the calendar could not be set differently (for example in the Middle East where the weekend is Fri / Sat where as in an Asian Country it would be Sat / Sun.
-The options of directory, org charts and teams could be shown when you keep the cursor on "Company" for quick access rather than having to go in to "Company" first (an additional click!)

Shihan! Many thanks for your honest review. We're all about making your business and employees more efficient so having features such as Asset Management really do help even if you never knew you needed it!

We're about to release an employee scheduling tool that will allow you and your employees to view the correct weekend days and working days throughout the company. I also like the idea of updating the UI/UX of the Company view. That extra click could go a long way!

Tracking employee vacations is the best part for me.

Pros

Simple design and the ability to allow the employee to enter their own days off for approval. It's one more task I don't have to think much about. It just happens keeps up with it all.

Cons

A few things have been hard to find. When we first started using it, I thought to locate where things were was a little complicated. We navigate it pretty well now.
