I love this product! It's made our employee management system so much easier and more streamlined. By including the performance management tool we have been able to create interactive, useful reviews that are relevant and current.

Pros

* Ease of use
* Easy to set up
* Customization
* Cost efficient
* Able to streamline employee management in one tool.
It meets our HRM needs perfectly. It is just right for a small-mid size business - not sure how well it would scale up, but that's not an issue for us.

Pros

OrangeHRM was one of the best open source free to use softwares I could find for HR Management. It offers time management, tracks vacation days, expenses and training. It even keeps all the documents for personnel in one easy to find place.

Cons

Changing the taxes were a bit difficult at first since we're not in America, but it's one of the pros to being open source

Unable to facilitate our companies accrual process. We have a specific accrual system that required individualized attention and calculations for diff departments and individuals which we are unable to get assistance with.

The product does what it says it does, but the user interface is not always intuitive and many of the leave tracking pieces have been confusing for our employees. My real problem is with customer support. For example to add a new type of leave, you have to have the folks at Orange add it. I called our original contact from orange and received a different person's voicemail. I left a message and haven't heard back. I don't have time to chase down the correct people. We also requested a custom change that we thought would be very simple. We wanted to customize Friday's in the leave module to be 7 hr days while the other 4 working days would remain 8 hr days. The cost to do this change was over triple what it cost us to buy the original product. We weren't warned of the cost of this change during the sales and marketing process and it took a bunch of follow up to even get the quote after the product was implemented. I would say this isn't a bad product for the price, but they could certainly improve in a few areas.

Pros

Central management of employee information and leave management. The asset tracker is nice. Reasonable cost for out of the box product.

Cons

Customer support is minimal. Some UI issues.

Value for Money

After a test phase (kind of a Proof of Concept), we decided to use OrangeHRM Open Source + LDAP plug-in. Employees were upset with old leaving request procedures based on documents, forms and email. Now the system has been running a whole year, and everybody loves its simplicity.

Pros

Functionalities included in OrangeHRM Open Source are very useful.
Simple and clear database schema.
Online demo environment. A good channel in YouTube.

Cons

Lack of a clear release policy (i.e. quarter or year updates). The last two versions of Open Source edition are 3.3.3 and 3.3.2 published in 2016-09-28 and 2015-08-04 respectively while commercial versions are in 5.2 branch.
Forums do not work (http://forum.orangehrm.com) and wiki is not updated (http://wiki.orangehrm.com).
The Spanish translation is not usable in Spain. We have maid our own translation but we have no official place to share it.

Advice to Others

Invest time in testing different software alternatives before choosing one of them.
Besides software features and functionalities, think of the availability of local support.
Remote support could be enought, but a big gap in time zones could be a handicap.

Likes Best

Ease of use, amount of features, affordability. The element of job listing is very handy and professional, gathering potential candidates and convert them to employees. All important employee information fields are there and there is an option to create custom fields which is really useful

Likes Least

Menu might need some correction to be more easy to use. Need better visualisation preferably in calendar of taken holidays. More custom fields, and different types of fields would be welcome.

Recommendations

Look for Open Source software you can try, expensive solutions once implemented might not meet your expectations and once you're in the trial you often stay with the wrong software.

I can't think of anything - the support I have received (I am a long-time user) has been excellent!

Recommendations

Talk to the OrangeHRM staff and let them know what you need - they are flexible and open-minded, and if at all possible they will customise (if that's what you need).

Pros

Orange HRM has drastically improved employee interaction wit HR and leave application is simpler and one can assign the emails that are to be alerted when a person applies for a leave using the portal. One can also add a comment that is not mandatory to help the person approving to know the reason for the leave.

Cons

The units used in the leave days application are very confusing, and one may not understand how many days they have left.

It's an open source software, so we modify with the needs of the company

Pros

The main reason I really love OrangeHRM is because it's open source. I implemented for an organization and it's installation was quite easy. Currently, we're doing changes to the code, for meeting all the needs the organization needs

Cons

It's true it's open source, but it's well documented. So it requires some time if you want to do any change. That's my only complain regarding the software

Orange HRM, works and operates from a Web browser (Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, among others), which is why the physical characteristics of the equipment are not very demanding. It is enough to have with a computer that has an Internet connection. Orange HRM, works and operates from a Web browser (Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, among others), which is why the physical characteristics of the equipment are not very demanding. It is enough to have with a computer that has an Internet connection. As a worker in the recruitment and selection area, she has allowed me to keep a list of job offers and to select personnel. Keep all information related to employees. Automate the processes related to the tracking time. Among others.

Pros

It facilitates the tasks collected in the life cycle of the employee. It helps to organize and manage the information of our personnel, simplifying many of the current processes. It unifies and protects the information related to employees.
Reduce internal bureaucracy and improve the efficiency of the HR department.

Cons

A counter would be that: We must have a dedicated server, that is, a place to host the Orange HRM system
