I enjoy the functionality of the program, and how easy it is to use and navigate through the different areas.

Cons

The thing I like the least about this program is that the look is a little outdated. I believe it could use a bit of a visual update

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. I imagine you are referring to our employee/manager self serve module when you mention the outdated look. In fact, we are close to releasing a new version that modernizes the user interface. I'm not sure of the exact release date but it will be 2018 for sure, probably no later than the end of summer. Stayed tuned.

Timely notifications/requests from staff and efficient processing of scheduling requests.

Pros

Easy to use interface for staff to notify the appropriate people regarding schedule changes and time off requests. Learning the system was easy with the support from our trainer.

Cons

Back end hosted infoHR system is a little tricky to navigate - has some 'quirks' that I needed to learn.

Customer support is great! We use this software to track vacation, sick and float time. Our courses are now being entered along with licencing for physicians/nurses with documentation pdf's. At end of year, Barbara always assists me in closing out the year.

Pros

I love that I can call the customer rep if I have a question/issue and she is always there to support me. This program was so easy when we had a Ministry of Labour Health and Safety inspection. I was able to show our Health and Safety courses (taken by employees) using Info:HR.

Cons

Some of the functionality is not as user friendly as I would like. Although they have a website and Barbara, I would still prefer to have a hard copy manual that I could refer to BEFORE having to make that call!

Very easy to use, ability to track information well for our corporate needs and able to grow with our needs as well.

Pros

The software provides features that are simple to use and maintain, as it pertains to employee information, tracking attendance managing timesheets. Customer service is always knowledgeable and ready to provide resolution to issues.

Cons

I wish the integration with our payroll software would be smoother but we are in the implementation phase so it may take some time to adjust to this new process.

Thanks for taking the time to post. Every payroll integration module we implement requires configuration to ensure that the correct data selections and transformations take place so as to conform to exactly what you want transferred from info:HR to your particular payroll system - that adds a bit more time to the implementation process but, once completed, results in the greatest degree of automation.

Everything I need in an HRIS system. Easy to use. Excellent attendance management features, allows you to create accurate accruals. Excellent support from service representative. Walked me through my year end to ensure all accruals were zeroed out and new ones created properly and accurately

Cons

Can't create your own reports. The continuing education section can be improved. Our reports are very messy and hard to pull up accurate information due to way too many options. Probably our fault, as each user enters information differently. CSV reports aren't always very clean.

Thanks for your comments. If you log in to the client section of our web site, you can download the data dictionary and then, with the help of your IT group, you can create your own reports by extracting data directly from the info:HR database.

For what it is - a complex employee database - it does an excellent job for us without a lot of expensive froo-froo. It has a basic look to it but that doesn't hinder its usefulness or logical flow of modules.

I am always learning new features to use and trying to implement what I can to make our lives easier. I like that they are open to suggestions when we have them and are always progressing.

Pros

I like the logical flow of the software when using it. It just makes sense to me and this helps a lot for every day use.
I also like that updates are ongoing and they are constantly looking for and making improvements.

Cons

There are many features that we don't use... there are a couple things that I still haven't quite mastered yet but that will come with time.
Sometimes we run into problems when we are trying to make the software work for our unique workplace. However, we always get excellent help figuring out a solution (if available).

The software allow the HR department to remain updated with current and historical information.

Pros

It provides the information that is applicable to our HR needs. Any new employee is able to be trained on the software with minimum supervision.

Cons

It could be more tailored to the Bahamian workforce. However, due to our current financial constraints we are unable to remain update as the software enables.

Human Resources & Managers in other sites have access to the same information in one location.
Easy to use and find information.

Pros

The things I like most about this software are that it is: easy to use, understand, show people how to use, and import documents. The import documents feature eliminated managers in other site from keeping duplicate paper copies.

Cons

The Employee Demographic screen is not split into tabs (Personal, Organizational, Misc.). I wish all of this information was on one screen but understand why you could have made this change.

Management team purchased this prior to my position. Just thankful I was able to transfer all the time away, and other tracking, to infoHR, as they were using excel sheets prior to my start date.

Pros

Customer service is great. Agent always responds within a half an hour to hour. The possibilities for online management of employees are endless.

Cons

The physical appearance and some of the functions are outdated. The customization to suit our organization would be costly.

Eliminate paper waste. Managers have access to information they need. We finally have a place to track and store training history. Our payroll system is old and basic, now I have access to all the data of our staff in a quick minute!

Pros

The software and data imports were easy to set up. It covers all the aspects of HR documentation and processes to make my life easier. The self-serve will be great for the environment and eliminate having paper floating around offices. Managers are empowered with information without needing to wait for a report!

An on-line system that is easily accessible to obtain information required in a quick and easy to use tool

Pros

easy to use system - enjoy the added functionality available for creating Form 7's, recruitment module, etc.

Cons

Creating reports is cumbersome. It is not possible to simply go into the system and click on the information you want to pull out. There are canned reports that often do the job however if an existing report doesn't exist for my needs then one has to be created - either through our trained in house IT contact OR I have to pay and wait for INFOHR to create it -- there has to be a better way to obtain simple data that is in the system - I just can't quickly pull it out when I want it.

There is a good workaround for the team calendar situation you mention - we'll contact you to discuss it further.
