"Great services"

What do you like best?

It has made planning events and on campus activities very easy for us, as it can provide us with multiple features to set up goals, appraisals, track progress, and use interactive calendars to manage and plan everything in advance.

It provides excellent customer support as well, and has a very easy sign up process.

What do you dislike?

No option to manage timesheets for the future. That would've helped us incorporate payroll services into the work as well and incorporate all aspects of hosting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend checking this out for planning everything, and even just a simple holiday.

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

We have used it to plan our on campus events, activities and communicate with the staff and respective responsible people. This has made communication, management and hosting very easy for us.

"Fantastic Product, Generous Pricing, Feature Rich and Excellent Support/Product Development"

What do you like best?

Pricing: An affordable HR Management APP that most certainly Priced generous.

Support & Development: Fantastic and appreciate the willingness to understand and resolve our unique requirements.

Features: I'd say an AIO product that does pretty much what every SMB require in terms of HR. We are now 100 percent reliable on Staff2 for Employee record keeping, time sheet, absence & leave management, Holiday management and more importantly the recently introduced Expense Management.

What do you dislike?

None to be specific, Successful & user friendly product is one where there is the will to develop and make the most out of the product focused towards solving customer's problems. Since i've witnessed the will to develop the product (also if it's a tiny improvement) i am sure we are with Staff2 in the long term...yes, there is more room for improvement and i am sure Staff2 is working towards making the product a unique and irresistable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's all about Pricing! We looked at the most essential business critical features and we have it on Staff2. Similar features to my knowledge is an impossible task to attain with another vendor. I'd recommend Staff2 to any SMB wanting an AIO product that solves problems and the great support and constant product development.

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

HR Nightmare now is a lot easier to manage..Thanks to Staff2 and more importantly their generous Pricing.

What Core HR solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"We chose the right HR software in Staff Squared"

What do you like best?

We have staff in various cities around the world so it was vital the software could support our vast array of different countries and currencies. Staff Squared has been completely up to the task of supporting all our needs. And most importantly, whenever I have needed support or suggest additions to the software, their team Support team are extremely efficient and helpful.

What do you dislike?

We would quite like to be able to customize the e-mails that go out so they're more in alignment with our business branding, but that's a minor niggle.

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

We love the calendar feature so I can see at a glance everything that is happening with staff across the business. The email notifications on people's birthdays and work anniversaries ensures we never miss any important milestones. Staff Squared is a very effective and user friendly HR tool and has become a crucial part of our business systems.

"Staff Squared reduces and automates key HR admin so I can spend more time actually managing our team"

What do you like best?

The most important features for us as a small business are:

- holiday planning, booking and the shared calendar

- sickness record and bradford factor score

- goals

- appraisals

We like that the product is focussed to suit the needs of a small/medium business and so it isn't like using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. You're only paying for what you really need. Importantly, the support service is top notch and personable - perfectly suited to the needs of SMEs

What do you dislike?

I'd like to see more dynamic reporting features or even just a wider choice of reports. I'm assured that this is coming. However, it's worth noting that if you can't access a specific type of report you want then you can contact support and they'll run the report for you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It goes without saying that Staff Squared resolves a lot of HR admin pain so it's already worth every penny you invest in it. But, for us, it's more than just HR software....it's a system that helps us to manage our team to efficiently achieve our business objectives.

My recommendation would be to use it as a team management tool that can organise your staff and feedback loops in a way you've never experienced before! You can do this using company objectives to communicate your company objectives to your team. The next step is to invest time in setting up goals for your team that they can use for ongoing guidance, team collaboration and (importantly) Staff Squared will provide you, the manager, with progress made against deadline/targets saving you being a constant nag. Our staff report that they can perform to expectation better when they understand the business' objectives and how their work (in the form of goals) contributes to achieving them. They feel more engaged and able to contribute on a more meaningful level.

It's amazing set of tools that helps to mobilise a team in the right direction in an organised and efficient manner.

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

- We've saved loads of time managing leave requests and sickness process

- We saved time by allowing staff to manage their own profiles and keep their personal data up to date

- We've not missed an appraisal for almost 2 years!

- Our team is fully aware of the company objectives for this next year and, through the use of goals, they know what's expected of them and how they're contributing to the overall aims of the business

"Ease to use"

What do you like best?

Ease of use; integrated HR, Payroll, Benefits, Recruiting....Great client service!

-Reporting is great

-Actually applying is fairly simple for the applicant

-Each phase of the recruiting product is highly configurable.

What do you dislike?

The user interface looks a bit outdated and could certainly benefit from being more visually appealing. Although not terrible, the dashboards leave something to be desired.

You can't update the recruiting process without serious update lag. Everything is effective dated when the applicant applies, so any business processes (interview, screening, offers, background checks) take months to work its way through all applications to be current.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For large companies, Staff Squared is a great tool.

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

Because we used Staff Squared as our HCM, it really has been nice having an integrated system. Just hoping key areas will be improved soon.

"Great Software For Absences"

What do you like best?

Love the fact that it tracks absences & sick leaves.

What do you dislike?

Have to upgrade to get full benefits of some things

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

It helps us keep track of employees absence way better than writing it down

"Easy to use and excellent support"

What do you like best?

We use this to keep all of our HR information and documents in one place. We tried some other apps but they just were not as user friendly, nor were they as well supported. The Staff Squared team have been so lovely working with us to make getting on boarded a simple process.

What do you dislike?

There’s a few “hidden” features that were not obvious when we first signed up. For example we didn’t know that expense tracking was an option as it’s not turned on by default!

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

It’s so much easier to manage our HR processes and information now that we’re up and running with Staff Squared. I love the reminders and the calendar is beautiful.

"This is the one"

What do you like best?

We’ve tried a number of HR software apps in the last few years but we think we’ve finally found the best with Staff Squared. The interface is easy to use, the functionality is great and there’s not too much of it. It covers all of the things we need.

What do you dislike?

We’d like to be able to do more around a “wiki” type setup with Staff Squared ,rather than having to use a separate product. Other than that - no complaints!

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

Our data is now up to date, and accurate! We never thought this would be possible before but finally HR is no longer an ongoing nightmare.

"Great for smaller businesses"

What do you like best?

Staff Squared seems to be optimised for smaller companies like ours, which means that there’s not too much bloat in the software and makes it so easy to use and get value out of.

The real time chat support was great when we were getting on board with the app. Instant answers to our queries was so refreshing.

What do you dislike?

We’d love to see more functionality in their time tracking, such as a clock in and clock out machine.

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

HR processes are streamlined and our staff data, holidays, sickness, and much more is now all up to date.

"How did it take us so long to find Staff Squared?"

What do you like best?

The team immediately fell in love with Staff Squared the moment we invited them on to the platform. The on boarding process was so simple a five year old could do it.

What do you dislike?

The appraisal management functionality is quite basic. Not that it’s not useful at all, it’s very good for setting meetings and tracking appraisals but you might still need to use your own forms.

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

We’ve achieved massive time savings, and standardisation of our business processes around with hr with staff squared.

"Gives our staff clear HR processes to follow"

What do you like best?

As our team grew we were struggling to keep track of their personal details, holidays and so on. This was especially hard given we operate out of multiple offices. Staff Squared fixed all of this for us.

What do you dislike?

Holiday years that start on the anniversary of the staff member's start date with us is something we would like to see added.

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

Staff now have a clear process to follow when they're using Staff Squared to manage their HR...much better than the chaos previously!

"WHAT A GREAT TIMESAVER"

What do you like best?

Our team got on board with the app very quickly but what made life even easier was the support Staff Squared provided. Friendly people to work with too which makes a nice change

What do you dislike?

We have some staff on awkward patterns for their shifts. It would be nice if Staff Squared could accommodate them.

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

Staff are now able to be more engaged in the management of their HR administration. Managers have got access to KPIs they’ve never had before.

"Seriously awesome software"

What do you like best?

A friend recommended I check out Staff Squared and I'm so glad I did. It's an efficient, interactive, ultra-user-friendly system to record staff leave, absence and lateness as well as holding personnel information and files and we love it!

Staff Squared team are always available to happily answer my questions.

What do you dislike?

The progress on adding big new features could be faster, but when they deliver it's quality so it's hard to complain

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

The aforementioned features around staff leave, lateness and so on allow us to automate those processes. So we spend less time on them and more impotently the information we use to manage our staff is infinitely more accurate than it was prior to the introduction of Staff Squared.

"Great Solution for Small Business"

What do you like best?

Staff Squared has allowed our company to do streamline our HR information process. We have the ability to on-board employees with ease. The software enables us to create reports in a timely fashion. It is cloud based, so no additional tech infrastructure. Glad to have made the switch.

What do you dislike?

So far, it has met all of our requirements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great small business solution!

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

Streamlining our HR process from anywhere we need access to the software. Also assists us in solving issues such as: overtime abuse; going paperless and staffing issues.

"Big fans of Staff Squared"

What do you like best?

The team here love the clear easy to use mobile app which is useful when we’re out and about.

We’re fans of how easy the website is to use, and their customer service is superb - they always provide little extras that make our lives so much easier.

What do you dislike?

The static reports are okay but it would be better if we could build our own reports. This is something they have told me they’re working on.

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

The team all love how Staff Squared empowers them to manage their own HR. Before we were drowning in paperwork but now we’ve got Staff Squared it’s all electronic, and most of all up to date!

"Easily the best HR software we’ve ever used"

What do you like best?

The ability to import our data from the spreadsheets we already had in place was a huge time saver. Got us up and running very quickly.

What do you dislike?

No real issues with the app just yet. Would be nice if there was more of a US focus on some areas but we respect that Staff Squared is a UK app.

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

Less admin, more time working!

"We are loving Staff Squared"

What do you like best?

The app is simply better than any of the competition we tried. The staff that support it are nice people and do what they say they're going to do.

What do you dislike?

The green! We're just not fans of their colors but the app itself is really easy to use.

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

Staff Squared stream lines our holiday planning, personnel records and performance review records. It also ensures that everybody who works here follows the same process, whether that's for submitting an expense, holiday or any other HR related workflow.

The colour green isn’t everyone’s cup of tea but that’s about all I can think of!

Staff Squared is a very effective and user friendly HR tool and has become a crucial part of our business systems.
