BrightHR
For a new part of our business, we have input staff details on Bright HR. There have been times when calls have been made to the helpline for guidance. It does not take long to get to know the staff you are speaking to. In relation to the query addressed with a team member today the service was excellent. Matthew has a great depth of knowledge of the system and works through the shift and annual leave calculations at the click of a finger. Thank you Mathew for your support, you are a star!

Users cannot update their own time sheet if mistakes are made or things change after submitting. The time sheet must be rejected by the reviewer before the user can update the time sheet. It would be much better for the user to be able to update the time sheet and resubmit, barring approval, instead of the upfront action of the reviewer rejecting the time sheet.

Pros
BrightHR
  • When a query has been dealt with via the helpline an email confirming the outcome is often issued which is great for reference at any time.
  • The system is easy to use and the screens are clutter free.
  • The support service offered is easy to access and the staff are friendly and helpful.

  • Allows our department to justify additional hires.

Cons
BrightHR
  • Direct-dial telephone numbers rather than going through the Peninsula helpline numbers.
  • Setting up annual leave profiles often needs the assistance of a Bright HR representative when staff works quirky shifts. Providing examples of how to set the system up in user guides may help to set the system upright the first time.

  • Leave management ability can be improved to offer more functions and reporting.
  • Administration function of adding new clients can be difficult and time consuming.
  • Maybe at times too much customization. It is difficult to administrate all the activities and tasks if we have future changes.

All depending on cost for renewal. This is very expensive as a reporting tool, as we do not recover the cost through billing

Alternatives Considered
BrightHR
I chose BrightHR as it offered a one-stop platform for HR management for which we have dedicated UK and ROI HR specialists who not only give HR advice but also write policies and handbooks, etc. They are a one-stop-shop, which was very important as when I signed the contract I did not have an HR person in my team and they were essentially my back office. Also, by signing up, I got access to Bright Safe too; which is great as again it's a one-stop-shop for Health and Safety in the workplace. So I can roll out toolbox talks, training, and accident management.
