PeopleHR Cloud based HR system

What do you like best?

The systems is so easy to set up and use. It's really intuitive and even some of the quirky features we need for our business have been easy to set up and accommodate in PeopleHR.

You really can have the system up and running in a very quick amount of time.

We are trying to have as many single sources of information in our business as possible, so integration is the key for us to save unnecessary admin effort moving forward. So, the fact that we can design and publish our own customisable API's is just an amazing feature.

What do you dislike?

There's really not a great deal we don't like! There are some features which you have to get used to, such as employees being listed alphabetically by first name but that's just getting used to doing things in a different way; they soon become second nature.

If we have found anything that really is wrong with the system, then after discussion with Sat and his team, we either find a better way to do the task in the system or they have improved the system accordingly. They do listen to feedback.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need an HR system then this will more than likely fulfil your needs. There may be some large organisations that need to work with legacy systems that may have issues but that's not my field of expertise.

All you need to do is understand what you have in terms of data and process and have a clear plan on what processes can be implemented in PeopleHR. As long as this can be clearly communicated to PeopleHR then they will have a better understanding on how to set up your system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to move to a new system when we moved away from our outsourced HR provider, HandoverHR. They used a really clunky system which we all had to work around. PeopleHR has enabled us to almost seamlessly transition to a new HR system and be in a better position from the off - it is just simply streaks ahead of what we had before. As we have become more confident and familiar with PeopleHR we have used it more and more as the single information source in our business for anything HR.

Specifically, the ATS has now enabled us to manage our recruitment in-house so much more effectively and without the cost of using an outsourced supplier. It really does make the process work for us.

Our first HRM software after a lot of testing/comparison

What do you like best?

A proper holiday/leaver planner, no longer using Google Sheets to work out who is on holiday but also the extended ability to sync to Google Calendar view where it can be accessible company wide by sharing.

Having everything centralised and in one place, we are able to have multiple companies on PeopleHR.

What do you dislike?

Some of the UI and UX is tough to navigate. The left hand menu could do with some defining and some more logic applied. Very rare I click the right option first time without clicking around multiple option to find what I was looking for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very friendly and responsive support team. Always ask for help if you need it and if there is something missing then feature request.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We can look after every country of operation in one place. Because all our data including contracts, personal information and payroll data is all central we can pull reports almost imminently. We also use the ATS which has saved a lot of time in managing an extensive hiring campaign efficiently.

Making HR admin easy

What do you like best?

People HR is straightforward and easy to use. The queries tool allows you to create reports using any data you have stored on the system, quickly and easily. There are a lot of features that you can easily customise with no technical expertise and with no negative impact on other features.

Requesting holidays is simple. Generally People HR is straightforward to use so training isn't required, but there are a lot of help videos and articles for admins, employees and managers in case help is needed.

There is also a support chat option available at all times and responses tend to be within a couple of hours, which I think is extremely quick compared to other vendors.

What do you dislike?

If the logbook feature was tweaked slightly it would allow you to do so much more on People HR. Although you can create forms to help you or employees record information, the field labels that you create have a very small character limit, which restricts how much you can do with these forms. An increased (or no) character limit would allow you to move so many more processes over People HR so that you could stop using paper forms altogether.

The company planner view isn't quite how our employees would like it to look, it's difficult to get an "at a glance" view of who exactly is off at different times.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask to try out a sandbox site before signing up so that you can test out all features.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are now able to use PeopleHR to manage all people data in one place, including employee files, payslips, holiday and sickness. This makes PII more manageable for data protection and newer GDPR requirements. Having all the data in once place also helps with management information reporting and financial reporting. We are starting to use People HR's Ripple Workflow to automate internal processes.

From paper to electronic

What do you like best?

The holiday planner has been a blessing for our company. We previously used paper holiday forms so this has been a transformation.

What do you dislike?

The Recruitment ATS module doesn't offer reporting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are heavily reliant on this for recruitment, please consider that you cannot report on the data easily.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Keeping an accurate track of absence, holidays and personal development reviews electronically in one place. Managers only have to use one system which reduces paperwork and confusion. We can report instantly on data for the Board too.

Keeping track of all candidates applying for roles in one place electronically - saving on paperwork!

Managers get to see an up to date review of where their recruitment is which is great.

We spent a lot of time harmonising the external job boards with our careers page and feeding this in to PeopleHR but it has been worthwhile to reduce administration in posting jobs.

Ideal for smaller companies, but suitable for larger ones!

What do you like best?

The overall layout of the application is great, things are organised in a way that are easy to find.

What do you dislike?

The dashboard looks like someones doodle when they first came up with the software package "idea" - I just don't see how the cartoon style page fits with the rest of the site. It's not causing any functional harm, although simpler stats/graphs would be more useful here.

Also the calendar selection when marking staff holidays, sick etc could do with a bit more logic applied. There are some fields when marking a staff member sick always catch me out, things like number of days etc is not known when its the first day of an absence! Would be better to just press a button for "user is sick" then an email or notification each day to record them as back at work, then fill in all the additional info needed.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Although I'm only in a small company having a central point to control everything staff related is perfect and people HR solves this problem perfectly, at a very reasonable price!

I have needed a staff members number before (to call them) but didn't have it stored on my phone, the system combines everything like this so you always have it to hand!

Best tool for a startup

What do you like best?

I love the Thanks section at PeopleHR, it allows you to thank you co-workers giving badges! It's amazing! And we also use the badges to select our employee of the month: each badge you give to a co-worker is a vote; the employee with the most number of badges on that specific month is the winner, the chosen one for the Employee of the Month.

What do you dislike?

What I most dislike is the the UI of the tool, it's not the most modern one (but it serves its purpose). The website is not that resposive mainly in small screens and in mobile..

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With PeopleHR we can track our employees vacations, day off and other type of absences. We also use it to vote for our employee of the month through the Thanks section.

Easy to use and effective HR system.

What do you like best?

We originally started using PeopleHR to manage holiday bookings. This has saved my managers countless hours of manually tracking holiday requests. The self serve function was well received with all staff. The system is incredibly easy to use, having little HR background I found it very easy to get to grips with. Staff enjoy the Thanks function and will regularly use this to so appreciation when they have had assistance from another team meber

What do you dislike?

The clocking function was a bit cumbersome and would sometimes crash on the app.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ask as many questions to the support team to help you get the most out of the software. Having no HR department in our company this software has made our lives so much simpler giving us time to focus on the core business.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Document storage was a huge problem before we moved to People HR. Staff would forever be chased to return documents with the electronic signatures and weekly updates this has become much easier to manage removing unnecessary admin from our Managers so they can focus on the core business functions. We have no introduced a much better performance review system using PeopleHR that has improved productivity the feedback from all team members has been great.
