Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"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.""We use this solution for our end to end HR needs from onboarding and hiring to learning.""The scalability of BambooHR is good."

More BambooHR Pros →

"The technical support is quite good.""SAP HCM can handle a large number of employees. We can easily process payrolls and check the arrangements, and the client can also check the performance of the employees. Additionally, it has some advanced features.""SAP HCM has a good performance.""Technical support is excellent.""When you maintain your data in SAP, you can generate any kind of HR report with one click.""They have some interesting features in the learning space.""Recently, the localization versions for different countries were increased, and that added value to the solution.""The setup was straightforward."

More SAP HCM Pros →

"The employee self-service feature is most valuable. This is the restaurant industry, and they have a mobile app that allows employees to go in and manage their data. So, employees can manage direct deposit accounts, emergency contacts, and other things in the app. That's definitely the biggest benefit.""I have found the most valuable feature to be business intelligence and Cognos reporting.""The fact that I can see the whole HR information in a single point is valuable. There is a unified view of everything, which is good. Previously, we had many different systems for each part of the information. Now, it is all centralized. It is very good.""It enables us to manage the system ourselves. We don't need an additional team to do a lot of maintenance and add the things that we want."

More UKG Pros →

Cons
"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.""It would be useful to have the possibility to assign a task to the different users within the software.""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 →

"It would be nice if the solution migrated to S/4HANA.""It would be very helpful for our company if a new version was released with the ability to contain all of the things that we have newly introduced in our company.""There needs to be a renovation of the interface and functionalities of the talent management modules.""SAP HCM could improve by having more resources and making it more user-friendly. It is complex.""The current platform is quite rigid and not as flexible and end-user friendly as other HR solutions.""The solution is rather expensive.""SAP HCM has many different channels for communication with the consultants which makes it complex. There are delays when there is a problem.""The extensibility of the integration could be improved."

More SAP HCM Cons →

"Certainly, the time and attendance and the payroll integration need a lot of work. They are disjointed pieces, and they don't work smoothly together. That's the main drawback.""Reporting is always a hurdle for any user just because it is so extensive. They provide a lot of out-of-the-box reports, but it is something that you always need to work on because you need more advanced writing of reports.""The navigation on the screen could be better. Sometimes, I have to dig a little bit deep to find what I need. Everything is there. It just needs to be a little bit smoother.""The solution could improve by simplifying it even more core reports, such as more sample reports, more generic reports that you can edit and improve on yourself."

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 →

  • "Licensing fees are paid yearly."
  • "The solution is a little expensive and we are charged per user for the license. The solution can be paid monthly or annually."
  • "The cost of SAP HCM is high, the license should be reduced. SAP HCM has a lot of hidden costs."
  • "The pricing is not reasonable at all."
  • "We have an annual license for this solution, and the price depends on the number of users."
  • More SAP HCM Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I wasn't involved in the pricing part. I'm a user, and I believe it is based on the user count. One thing that is nice about Ultimate is that you can learn how to use the system without additional fees. The learning aspect is the life of a product, and the training was a huge reason why we went with Ultimate. We did have some integration costs. They were a part of the implementation because of the integrations to other systems that we included in our implementation."

    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.”


    SAP HR (Human Resource Management), also known as "Human Capital Management" (HCM), is an important module in SAP ERP systems that supports all of the human resource management processes in the enterprise.

    SAP HR records the data from the hiring of an employee to its final termination in the organization. It stores employee data such as designation, role, salary details, working shifts, address, etc.

    At UKG, our purpose is people — real people with real challenges, and a simple request. Help me keep my employees productive, connected, and happy. So that’s what we did.

    We’ve created an unmatched suite of HR and workforce management solutions, backed by our people who care about yours. Our solutions deliver global workforce experiences that truly reflect the connection between life and work today. That means insights are deeper. Work is easier. And interactions are more meaningful.
