Which HR Software for SME organisation?

Hi everyone,

I am currently looking for a new HR software. We still work on spreadsheets which is a nightmare. I was wondering if you have any experience with the below companies:

I appreciate people asked similar questions on this topic as browsed the previous threads too but these were about 2 years ago and things in this area change a lot over time. 

So any feedback/sharing your experience  would be welcome.

Thank you.

    I implemented YouManage 3 years ago at a previous company. I really valued its functionality, workflows and the fact that it met best practice. I felt the Recuitment module was poor. I am now looking at doing the same again for this company - but trying to be unbiased. PeopleHR offers flexability to build and change workflows. YouManage does not offer this. It would be great to speak with someone that has used both YouManage and PeopleHR.

    Hi Ceri. I felt the same about the recruitment module on You Manage. Cezanne's was good.
  • Hi Lenka

    We introduced BreatheHR over a year ago now and really like it. It is very straightforward and user friendly, no real training needed. You are able to put in different holiday entitlements and working patterns in for people fairly easily and it also has a lot of features that you can customise. The recruitment part of it is fairly new and to be honest I haven't really used that part yet.

    They have an online help system where they get back to you very quickly or you can pick up the phone and speak to someone - I have found everyone there that I have spoken to very helpful.

    Anyone else worked with the recruitment function with Breathe? I'm interested but that would be a dealbreaker for me if it was limited or not user/candidate friendly.

    Hi ... worth a search :)

  • In reply to Joanne O'Hagan:

    I use Breathe but I have not used the recruitment function.
    The only reason is you can only have one admin. So if I have to download CVs from a database to email them to the hiring manager... it's just extra steps for the same result IMO.
    That being said, they do change things rapidly when there is user feedback.
  • I've just stumbled across this thread which is extremely useful as we are looking to implement a HR system - still spreadsheet based at the moment.

    I've used Cascade before and we are currently throwing this one into the mix as overall it's not a bad system. I had a call from Access today and I was wondering what your thoughts were on it? Not sure whether to trust them or not as I've heard mixed reviews!

    We have a demo with PeopleHR too which I'm looking forward to based on the general consensus on here.

    Thanks,

    Lisa

    I have a demo set up with CIPHR and Cascade and also looked at Breathe HR and Cezanne HR.
  • In reply to Lisa Hennings:

    I feel like I've done a lot of sessions with different databases recently, and my front runner at present is Natural HR. There seems to be a lot more flexibility in designing workflows, forms and systems that our organisation needs.

    Hi Nina

    It's quite the job to look at all the options that are available - who have you considered along with Natural HR? (If you don't mind me asking!)
  • In reply to Joanne O'Hagan:

    It certainly takes some time. I've had trials with Breathe, Bamboo and People HR. I've met with CIPHR and Natural HR, and I've reviewed all the other products that people have referenced on these forums. I think they all have strengths and weaknesses, so it's definitely about finding the right fit.
  • Hi Lenka,
    After seeing all this brilliant feedback I am hoping not to be to little to late but we use www.cascadehr.co.uk/.../ A very positive about this software is that it is extremely versatile with many, many editable options, reminders and other useful content with very details reports for pretty much everything. Anyway, I hope this helps if you require further information please send me a private message and I'll be more than happy to give you more detail feedback. good luck

    Hi Nina

    I've introduced Natural. It's a big system for a small(ish) price in my view and I can't fault the support (which I had heard good things about). PeopleHR was my second choice but the support element was very important to me and I was not sure how PeopleHR would compare with it. I hasten to add that I had not heard anything bad about PeopleHR in this respect, just that I had heard good things about Natural.

    Thank you Manuel, we have at the end gone for People HR which fitted our needs very well and was within our budget. So far very happy with the system and the support they offer. There are few suggestions for improvement which customers can now put forward through suggestion portal and the developers then will look at them and address those who are mentioned the most, which I think is great.
