BizMerlin

We took the trial of 3 HR software before going with BizMerlinHR. We wanted to have a comprehensive HR solution to cover our Paperless employee records, employee onboarding, PTO, Timesheets and Employee Performance Management. We were not looking for an Applicant Tracking system and Retention management module, but when we saw the functionality and easy use we were completely sold to those modules as well. It was like add-on but the price of everything was more economical than the other software that we were reviewing

The system allows us to make informed decisions through the accurate reporting capabilities which are a great help when dealing with complex people issues. The reports are accurate and are great for situations such as absence reporting.

Pros

BizMerlin

  • This software is highly configurable. Very easy to use. Lots of out of box integration.
  • It's got a mobile app and is also cloud based.
  • The goals module is our biggest used module. It also has great features like instant feedback, applicant tracking and onboarding.
Mohit Sareen | TrustRadius Reviewer

People HR

  • PeopleHR takes on board business case ideas to improve their software. The more customers that request the business case to be brought forward, the higher on the priority list it becomes.
  • The holiday / annual leave planner is great - it can log all instances of leave and has a built-in return to work form.
  • The applicant tracking system for recruitment is very easy to use and can integrate with your own company website.

Cons

BizMerlin

  • Could be improved by adding more advanced HR practices
  • We wish there was more flexibility for integration
Mamta Rana | TrustRadius Reviewer

People HR

  • The system tends to be particularly slow on Monday mornings and sometimes can be down for a couple of hours at a time which is frustrating for employees
  • The naming of the tabs isn't as clear as they could be. For example, reports are called Queries. Makes getting used to
  • The org chart isn't very user-friendly, would be better to be able to export department by department

Alternatives Considered

BizMerlin

We took the trial of 3 HR software before going with BizMerlinHR. We wanted to have a comprehensive HR solution to cover our Paperless employee records, employee onboarding, PTO, Timesheets and Employee Performance Management. We were not looking for an Applicant Tracking system and Retention management module, but when we saw the functionality and easy use we were completely sold to those modules as well. It was like add-on but the price of everything was more economical than the other software that we were reviewing. Also, they really mean when they say "No setup fees" - because they helped us move all of our legacy data into the new system at no extra charge and helped us integrate with QuickBooks online. They definitely provide the best value of money when comparing the same set of features.
We have been using BizMerlinHR since 2018, and both our HR managers and users are very happy.

We observed 3 other products and PeopleHR had more to the product for a much lower cost when we compared.

Return on Investment

BizMerlin

  • It's saving us about 40% of what we are spending
Mohit Sareen | TrustRadius Reviewer

People HR

  • The system has freed up time of our administrators allowing them to get involved in more and develop themselves within the department
  • The data allows us to accurately report on absence which has supported the development of a new absence management process
