BrightHR

BrightHR is great at showing who is on holiday, who is in the office or working from home; which team and who reports to who. It is great at setting up new employees and it is very intuitive with setting the new employees up.You can add all HR documents to individual employee folders and you can give permission to those employees to view documents or you can turn that off. You can set reminders for reviews and PDRs as well as you receive reminders from Bright HR letting you know if the information is missing; for if someone needs holiday/TOIL approval.I find the fact that documents cannot be viewed in the application frustrating as sometimes I do not want to download the document to my laptop.

When you have a larger facility, being able to clock in from different spots on the property is very convenient. The only issue I have is sometimes forgetting to clock out before leaving! But I found that setting an alarm on my phone and then being able to access the app right away has made things nice and easy. Aside from that, you do need make sure that wherever you use the app has good connection. This can be a problem if you're attempting to use the app out in the field.

Pros

BrightHR

  • Holiday management
  • HR storage
  • Absence reporting
  • Track vacation

Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

  • Boomr tracks daily work hours and weekly totals automatically. The system sends weekly email reminders of the work week ending and digests of the previous week's hours worked.
  • The interface is intuitive and easy to use and understand. Open the mobile app, select your location and click "Track time." The app also tracks break times, and shifts can be edited afterward.
  • Boomr makes it easy for the payroll department to gather payroll information at the end of a week.

Cons

BrightHR

  • none that I can think of

Justworks Hours (formerly Boomr)

  • There are rare times when Boomr will not load and open, essentially blocking you out from checking in, out, or whatever it may be.
  • I would like to be able to see more visual charts to track as oppose to just a list of the times.

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.

I have only used Boomr to track my time, but before I used Boomr I logged my time manually. Boomr is much easier and gives me more peace of mind than manual logging. I have had a largely positive experience with Boomr so far
