Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"We use this solution for our end to end HR needs from onboarding and hiring to learning.""I like the fact that the annual days are calculated automatically and that if annual leave is taken in the future, those days are put on hold. You know at every point how many days of annual leave are you left with and how many are on hold.""The performance goals and personal features of every employee with the dashboard is most valuable.""The scalability of BambooHR is good."

More BambooHR Pros →

"It is a one-stop shop solution, where you can actually log in using your Windows username and password, and the single sign-on can be configured with this LMS."

More Saba Cloud Pros →

"There is a lot of scope for customization with this solution""The solution is stable.""Workday is highly intuitive from a customer experience perspective. It was effortless for us to understand what to do even though we didn't have any related training. It was easy to use without guidance.""It's easy to set up.""First time users, understanding accessibility and consolidated data is fairly easy. The solution improves productivity for users and reduces the need to switch between different tools.""The most valuable features of the solution are the usability, learning, and compliance tools.""The solution was very good at reconfiguration and customization of their software. It helped us to meet federal regulations.""The user interface is good and very easy to use."

More Workday Pros →

Cons
"It would be useful to have the possibility to assign a task to the different users within the software.""In the BambooHR performance management annual evaluations we have some limits to the questions. We can only add four extra questions, and they already have three basic questions, this is not easy for us. We would like to have more flexibility with the questions.""The color palettes could be changed to make the solution a little more attractive and easier to use.""BambooHR could be improved by managing leave in a way that transfers remaining days at the end of the annual year to the following year."

More BambooHR Cons →

"Even though the system has a number of features, design wise the user interface is a little bit complicated. It is hard for the user to navigate properly. Because the system has so many features, it has a lot of tabs and links. Sometimes, people get confused as to where to go and search."

More Saba Cloud Cons →

"The cost of Workday is certainly not inexpensive. It's very pricey.""The navigation of Workday is good but could be better.""The solution should be more user-friendly.""The user interface could be better. Everything else was fine.""The user interface can be enhanced.""The finance module of this solution is not great and needs improvement.""In a future release we could like to have access to asset, supply and treasury management functionalities.""This solution could be made easier to use by continuing to release new improvements."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We pay a monthly subscription to use the solution. The subscript model is based on how many employees we have active."
  • More BambooHR Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I would rate the price at four on a scale from one to five because it's a very expensive product."
  • More Saba Cloud Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing is good from an HR perspective, although management gets upset after spending $500,000 a year, every year."
  • "Its price is pretty high. It is more expensive than what is offered by other competitors in the market."
  • "It has an annual subscription rate, but I'm not sure how it will work."
  • "The pricing for this solution is fairly high. It is not affordable for small and mid-sized companies."
  • "By and large, Workday is expensive. It is based on the headcount. I'd probably rate it a three or four out of five in terms of pricing. It'd be like buying a Mercedes or a high-end car. It's expensive, but there's a specific value that you're getting with additional features and things of that nature. Using that metaphor, Workday probably tends to be more of a luxury. There are others like ADP that can do your payroll, your time off, and other things, but they don't do it as well."
  • "It is on a yearly basis."

    Overview

    Our applicant tracking system is a surprisingly simple way to reach more qualified candidates and track, share, and evaluate their applicant information. Plus, our ATS module works hand in hand with our HR software, so you can enter data once and you're done.

    Collaborators can leave comments, rate candidates, and change applicant statuses—all within the ATS. Permissions let you control what collaborators can view, keeping sensitive information (like desired salary) private. The only hard part will be agreeing on a candidate.

    • Intuitive Interface

      Tech savvy or not, the applicant tracking system is easy to use. Your team will have no problem quickly filtering candidates, rating the best ones with a five-star rating system, and pushing job postings to free job boards and social media outlets.

    •  
    • No Duplicate Entry

      Get new hires’ basic data into your HR software with ease. Simply change a candidate’s status to “hired,” and their information will transfer from the applicant management software into the HR system. It takes less time to process a new employee than it does to say, “you’re hired.”
