What do you like best?
The variety of modules offered by OrangeHRM. There are a lot of options on offer which allows for a full-service HRM system using Orange. Overall, it allows for nearly every aspect of HR at our organization to be covered by the software, although this does require the use of the professional version over the Open Source.
What do you dislike?
My biggest gripe with the software is despite the options available, they are held back based on the version of the software you have. While I understand the thinking and strategy behind it, we should have access to the full suite of features no matter what version we use. Additionally, getting information on the pricing/costs of each version is a bit of a challenge as well. Finally, without access to some of the reporting functions, it limits the usefulness and value of the software.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Consider each of the different versions and what will work best for you. You may only need certain modules, which means that the Open Source version might be sufficient. If you require more, though, you'll need to look into the other versions and hopefully obtain accurate costing. In the end, truly consider whether the limited functionality will actually add value.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Our main business problems, as with most HR software, is to find ways to minimize paper waste and implement a full-service HR solution to assist in optimizing our HR processes. At this point, though, we have not fully realized any benefits due to the limited functionality of the software.
