Breezy HR

Working with many employees at the same time would be the perfect scenario to let us test all the potential that the Breezy HR platform has to offer, since its organizational capacity is large enough to be able to organize and coordinate the attendance and absence information of many workers without losing track of the job. Reviewing documents where data is needed about each employee's behavior, including their daily attendance hours, tracking of all the absences they have taken since starting at the company, and comments about their potential, which would be excellent for reporting during promotional seasons. The management of many employee lists through database services, which thanks to the platform's adaptation to cover external service software operations such as Microsoft Excel, means that it is possible to import employee databases when moving information from a storage platform.

Heartland Payroll+

As far as payroll software goes, Heartland works well for our current needs. We have an average of 43 employees that work in remote locations. Employees have access to an APP to retrieve their paystubs and notifications. Our assigned payroll specialist is responsive to our requests. The software is reliable. We are able to log hours worked at different locations to pull labor allocation reports needed for accounting purposes. The ease of the onboarding process is a game-changer, especially with all the issues since the pandemic began. I can't imagine the hiring process without it! We are able to run background checks and have the new hire complete the necessary forms. Then process the Everify file once all info is obtained. Notifications from heartland are easy to understand and it makes the hiring process overall so efficient!

Pros

Breezy HR

  • Organization. It provided an incredible way to streamline applicants and their place in the process. With a strong search capability, you can find anyone no matter where they are in the process. And you can see if they've applied elsewhere in your company.
  • User friendliness. Not everyone understands technology. Even more so when web programs are involved. I am well versed in programs like these, and did a lot of vetting before making our purchase, so training came easy. It also - to our happiness - came easily to people who've never seen these programs. Breezy was there to help with the issues we had understanding; however, we didn't need them much because the interface was just that easy.
  • Options. They have third party integrations, and are willing to open to more. They want to make their program useful in more than one way. Breezy crew worked with us to link to our HRIS system. They also have a great many integrations that are relevant to any small business (we are not small, but this would be a great choice for a small company just starting out and seeking to understand what they need).

Heartland Payroll+

  • Cheap payroll processing but [in my opinion] you get what you pay for
  • [In my experience] great ability to frustrate their customers
  • Geat for the economy because [I feel] they hire so many different people and [in my experience] they don't hang around [so] you don't know who your rep is

Cons

Breezy HR

  • Their calendar functionality is pretty clunky. For example, I am able to use the platform to easily propose times to multiple candidates, but it doesn't mark the option as unavailable once the candidate has booked the time. This has led me to be double-booked on multiple occasions. (We now just use a Calendly link).
  • You're able to create a careers web page that automatically lists open jobs through Breezy, which is nice, but the customization is incredibly limited.
  • While you can manage your whole hiring funnel from Breezy, it lacks the automation and other functions of some of the high dollar platforms.
  • Breezy doesn't offer any templates or suggestions with how to build your funnel, so I can imagine that many customers miss out on functionality that could help streamline their workflow. I think they could really benefit from some 'getting started' suggestions and guides.

  • If I need to calculate the net amount for a check, it's a difficult process.

It's no fuss and does what we need at a very reasonable price, so I can't imagine why I'd switch.

Usability

It's very difficult to navigate. Most systems have a job management side and a candidate management side. Breezy only has a candidate management side. It never pulls our jobs to Indeed. The user interface is so challenging to navigate. It will remove vital parts of the screen if you expand a menu. It freezes constantly. It's a great idea, but it has so many software bugs. There is something wrong with this platform and nobody wants to find the bugs.

The customer support team is always very responsive, and they are genuinely interested in helping you solve your issue. If the issue is something they cannot solve or guide you through, they always send it to their tech team to fix from the back end. They are also very receptive when you send along ideas or suggestions.

My account rep is very responsive when I send them an email. Sometimes I don't use the exact lingo and it takes a few messages to get the answer I'm looking for, but that is probably my fault. I do wish there was a local rep that I could meet with if needed.

It was really easy to get up and running, and the few questions I did have were answered nearly immediately via the in-app chat.

Alternatives Considered

Breezy HR

I liked that Breezy HR had an option to try it out before we committed. I also preferred the User interface of Breezy HR to other options we looked into. The pricing was very attractive as well. Plus it included more features than most competitors we demo-ed did

We have used both Paychex and ADP and find them to be annoying. They both share your information so we get constant sales calls and emails for all their products and we can never get rid of them because they do not have an unsubscribe option. They do have better online platforms though. We selected Heartland Payroll to support Shannon L., who is the best.

Return on Investment

Breezy HR

  • Breezy HR has cut our recruitment work load by about 30%. Breezy HR automates a lot of the process and cuts out a ton of manual work. This has allowed our recruiters to focus on the more important parts of the process thus resulting in higher quality hires.

Heartland Payroll+

  • By using Heartland, we cave both time and money by making our labor allocation reporting simpler
  • Using Heartland onboarding saves so much time by making the overall onboarding process efficient.
  • By using Heartland for our compliance needs through onboarding, such as background checks (GoodHire) and E-verify, we have peace of mind.
