Sympa helped us change the way of working

The easy access to the system and information has helped everyone in the organization a lot.

Pros

With Sympa the time consumption of making reports and administrative tasks were reduced by at least 70 %. The managers love the easy access to all information about their employees that they needed to ask HR about before. It looks good and is easy to access. Sympa was a great help in setting up the system in the best way for our organisations needs. I fell that Sympa listens to the customers needs and is trying to develope the system frequently.

Cons

I still miss a good feature to work with appraisals. It fells a little bit edgy still and we have to invent and priorize a little to much to make the form/feature good.

Reasons for Choosing Sympa HR

Sympa gave more value for the money.

Response from Sympa

Wow Anna, amazing impact in efficiency with the reduced time consumption! Very well done, and thank you for sharing these results! Maybe the new multi-edit tool could ease some of your pain when it comes to handling appraisals? Don't hesitate to reach out to our support or your dedicated Customer Success Manager, if you have any further questions! Thanks for being with us and enjoy your smoother HR ride!

Sympa HR is a great help for us every day

Our managers have access to all employee data in one system.

Pros

It´s easy to use for our managers. We can administrate it by ourselves and there are a lot of opportunities.

Cons

Sometimes as an administrator it´s not so easy to do changes. We need to contact Sympa support for help.

Reasons for Choosing Sympa HR

It was the HR system that was most user friendly. Our managers and employees are very operational and not so administrative.
