    Pros

    Really easy to use software and online platform. Nice layout that is great to navigate through, and LOVE the deals they have for promotions with other companies.

    Cons

    They didn't have a time-in-lieu option for your days off as far as I can remember, so I had to ask for normal leave and add notes that it was time-in-lieu

    Easy to use platform that employees enjoy interacting with - but don't expect customer service or support.

    Good functions and an easy to use platform don't compensate for lack of support or customer service.

    Pros

    Has cut down on our paper trail. It's good having all the HR documents uploaded in one place that can be accessed by employees.

    Cons

    Little to no customer support. All correspondence must be by email which is slow and ineffective. EH changed to a 'pay-for-support' arrangement after our company had already signed up - so the appealing point of difference that made EH stand out is now gone. The platform is expensive and can only be paid for by direct debit - which would be okay if invoicing was accurate and correct. We are now looking at other platforms but it's a bit like deciding you want a different breed of puppy after you've house-trained the first one.

    Pros

    It's a toss up between the paperless on-boarding function and the compliance transparency. The ability to track on-boarding and staff compliance has made my job substantially easier and created complete transparency. I also like that employees recieve notifications for documents outstanding.

    Cons

    When setting up mutliple small business's you have to enter the same info over and over again, so set up was a bit time consuming. However once completed it's done and its smooth sailing from there.

    Pros

    Employment Hero appears to have taken the Apple approach of starting with the end user in mind and focusing on the customer experience rather than create the technology and people having to adjust to the technology. I like that I have made some suggestions for additional functionality regarding visibility of annual leave calendars over multiple departments which they had taken on board and rolled out in a software update. There was no additional cost to us and then all users get the advantage of the improvements. Like wise, when other users make suggestions that they take on board, we get access to the additional functionality. It is good that there is only one platform of Employment Hero that they need to support.

    Cons

    Very happy with the software. The timeliness of support was slower than expected initially, but I think this is due to growing pains and the rapid growth of Employment Hero.

    Easy to use, staff can have app on their phone which is brilliant. Great technical support service upon implementation, prompt responses and very helpful.

    Cons

    Initial set up discussions and planning is very important to ensure business requirements are met. Unfortunately some were not met immediately but through the great technical support service and advice, all issues were resolved fairly quickly.

    easy streamlined paperless onboarding process.

    Pros

    The webinars that show you how each feature works - acts as a step by step guide to using the system. Everything is automated - you can see where each employee is up to in the onboarding process and follow them up.

    Cons

    You can't tell if the employees have completed all the policies. It would be good if you could complete the report safety incidents on the mobile app.

    Pros

    It talks to Xero and it is very intuitive and easy to use. It not only has saved us hundreds of dollars in HR and time, it is helping us to organise our policies and other processes in one place.
    The onboarding tools are also fantastic and totally automate the process while still giving us full control.
    This really is a fantastic product, it is more than paying for itself and we are still only on the learning curve, probably using 30% of its potential.
    Being cloud-based it also a big advantage for us and it allows the user to log-in regardless of where they are and what devise they use.

    Cons

    Haven't found a Con yet.

    Streamlined our onboarding & HR document management.

    Pros

    There's no guess work. The menu options are clear and the interface is easy to use. I love the employee onboarding function, the seamless integration with our accounting software & the ability to store all our HR docs in each employee's file for easy access.

    Cons

    Can't fault it. It's the easiest system implementation I've been part of and the support team are great.

    A to Z HRIS for a small to medium size company. Customer support has been very efficient and to my satisfaction.

    Cons

    The software is very user friendly, however the initial implementation meeting should have been more detailed so that all relevant details could have been updated before go live.

    The simplicity makes it easy to navigate. It is really cost effective and the customer service is good.
    It save heaps of time compared to accounting program payroll modules and it integrates with the accounting software and banking software.

    Cons

    It would be good if you could add volunteers (unpaid people) without needing to go through all the fields that need to be populated for paid staff

    One online portal for payslips, leave booking, user management. Can book leave way in the future and see how much leave will have accrued at that date.

    Pros

    Booking/checking leave is amazingly easy and clear. Consolidates several older systems (payslips, leave, on/offboarding checklists)
    iOS app is clean and convenient.

    Cons

    Can't reassign assigned tasks, or decline with message - if I can't do a particular task for any reason I have to decline it in EH then send an email separately saying why.

    Time - This software has saved my sanity in on boarding new employees and now we have over 100 staff its great that they can update their details themselves.

    Pros

    Ease of use, great on boarding tool, cuts the contract time down considerably, Great task list features, good reporting functions as you can customize easily. Collates all the employee information meaning accounts aren't left to chase down these items from employees.

    The employees love the platform too as it has all their information for them in one place and they all love the Annual Leave function

    Cons

    I would like to be able to assign certain sections to other employees - for example it would be good if the accounts staff could view "Employee Bank Details" without having access to any other information

    I would also like to be able to amend and upload (or delete) our own contracts rather than having to go through the support team every time - Support are great if I am not in a rush as it normally take 24-48 Hours to turn around, but if I just need to alter something quickly it would be nice to add and remove myself

    Biggest benefit is having all the staff data in one place, plus auditing tools/notes to record staff changes and moves. It is fast, simple and does exactly what it needs to.

    Pros

    It is easy to use, relatively comprehensive, and is a one-stop shop for employee data. We utilise it primarily for recording employee data and contracts (not Payroll) and offers good tools to report on compliance and profile completeness. It is currently an essential tool in our business for managing our staff.

    Cons

    Most features are pretty well thought out, and one of the biggest limitations (timeframe and cost to have custom built contracts/policies) is soon to be a thing of the past. Probably the biggest bug I have is after viewing or sending a contract to a recipient, there is no one-click to return the the Employee File - you either need to search again or navigate back in the browser.
