15Five

15Five is well suited for businesses/groups that are transparent, and willing to share information. If an organization was not a place where information is freely shared, it would not be helpful. Although, it could improve the level of transparency, as members of the organization could have space where they feel comfortable to share information. There are several different privacy settings within the each 15Five, so users can choose what they want to share. Also, it's best to make sure you/your organization has the time to use 15Five. It can be time-consuming for users, but also for those reviewing employees 15Five. It can be a lot of information to sift through. However, the layout of the software is easy to engage with and digest, which is helpful! Additionally, it's important to share with the team how 15Five works, and why it's being utilized. Depending on the questions that are set up within the software, it would seem a bit invasive to some. However, if a clear expectation is set prior to use 15Five, this may not be an issue.

UltiPro

If you are running a more traditional HR shop where the focus is on operations and not really L&D or Talent Management, Ultipro will suit you. Their core HR is strong and their Talent Management is also good, if not a little traditional. If this is your first HRIS, however, there are cheaper options to solve the problems of a typical business without a system.

Pros

  • Goals/To-do lists: 15Five is a great tool for creating to do lists or establishing goals for the week. Employees can add them easily, and check them off when completed. For me, this has provided a helpful visual of what needs to be accomplished that week.
  • It's easy to send information out to anyone in the organization - tagging individuals or @all is an easy way to share information within the platform. Our president is a big fan of 15Five, and she has utilized it as a way to disseminate information throughout our organization. Information can be uploaded in an easy-to-read, easy-to-access manner.
  • Reminders - it's easy to set up reminders within the program, to ensure employees are completing their portion. As an employee, the reminders are helpful in encouraging completion.
  • Customizable questions - direct supports/supervisors can set up different questions to be asked of employees from week to week. This is helpful if there are questions that are needed to be asked weekly, monthly, quarterly, or yearly. Being able to change questions regularly is great.
  • Payroll: Ease of processing, simplicity of getting it done. It has cut our processing time in half.
  • Benefits: We are finally paperless with all of our benefits processes.
  • On-boarding: We are finally paperless with most of our on-boarding processes.

Cons

  • Although I mentioned customization as a positive aspect, it could use some improvements. The backend process of updating the questions, and setting them to a certain schedule, can be a bit confusing. This process could be streamlined.
  • The commenting process can be a bit confusing. If a person is tagged/mentioned in a comment, they are typically sent an email notifying them. However, it can be difficult to locate where you can reply and continue the conversation. Although a simple issue, it seems it could be easily rectified.
  • I would like to see more integration of the team portion of 15Five. It seems this feature is not as prominent, so you can easily get stuck in just your specific 15Five information.
  • We would love the ability to approve timecards from the mobile feature or via email. We currently have to log in to the full website on the mobile device or iPad so at least there is a work around if we are not at a computer.
  • Spell check would be great in the Performance Management area. I typically type my responses in a different application to spell/grammar check then copy paste as a work around. Having the ability within the application would be a bonus.
  • The timecard approval notification doesn't list the period that needs to be approved. It would be nice to have it in the email or link directly to that timecard.

I use UltiPro every day and find value in all of the features that are available to this organization. While I am not responsible for deciding on staying with this HCM solution and renew it in the future, I am a huge supporter for staying with the solution because it packs quite a punch when used as intended.

UltiPro has met all of our expectations and provided us with the tools needed to build our employee and management supports and to report the results whenever needed. The program has grown and been modified to keep pace with changes in recruitment practices, and our employees find it easy to access their information and change benefits at any time. Our support staff has been freed up to focus on other areas of business growth. More of our HR processes are automated and need only approval of the self-service processes.

It is frustrating to build a relationship with a support person only to have that person promoted out of the position and then have to build a relationship with their replacement. It is good that they promote internally, but can slow down the process when you have to work with someone new so frequently.

The "Hands on Learning" at Connections is a must. It's great to be in a class setting with trainers (experts) throughout the room to help answer any questions as you walk through step-by-step. The training material is easy to understand and a great reference tool when you are in the office executing what you have learned.

It is a very arduous process (and would be regardless of the product being implemented), but the UltiPro implementation team that guided us through the process were very skilled, dedicated, organized and helpful. We implemented payroll and benefits within less than 12 months and there was virtually no disruption in employee pay or benefits upon the transition
