    Core HR

    Core HR is software that can so easily fit on any kind of HR management system. It has amazing features. In case of new recruitment applicant tracking, application management, approval process control, etc could easily solve with Core HR. It is very much suited for company records management. It is a complete database for current employees as well.
    Muhammad Sadequl Islam | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sapling HR

    It's a good space to have a high level overview of the organization (especially Org view).Places for improvement include extra levels of complexity when you need to click on the person and you are navigated to the pop-up that is hard to use and only one pop up can be used at a time. I wish there wasn't so much of clicking in and clicking out.
    Sergi Sparks | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Pros

    Core HR

    • Functioning is very easy and very much clear to the new users as well.
    • Detailed payroll structure of your compensation.
    • Salary slip is available for all the previous months as well.
    • Claiming of different allowances like phone bill, internet bill, shift allowance etc are very simple.
    • We can easily track the time and attendance.
    Mohammad Equbal | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sapling HR

    • Very customizable. Very easy to create new workflows and tasks to meet the unique needs of your organization.
    • The system is easy to navigate, so minimal training is needed for users.
    Aldo Gomez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Core HR

    • I would love the ability for reviews to be deleted.
    Genevieve (Genni) Lum Cheong-Brown | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sapling HR

    • Deeper data management/review - dashboard experience could be better and deeper
    • Ability to drill into reports within the tool- right now it takes you out to a sheet to view
    • Org planning/org chart sharing

    To use this system you need to buy several add-ons. If add-ons do not fit your business model you will have to access platforms from different companies. The system is not easy to use for onboarding. Candidates cannot change and update settings. To use the system a person must click in the correct spots. If not it leads you someplace else. Then you have to start clicking all over again.

    Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

    If you have someone internally that can run it that definitely helps!

    Alternatives Considered

    Core HR

    The previous software I used was so limited in various core HR functions. On the other hand Core HR meets up our almost every requirement. And the very most reason to switch into Core HR is it has a free trail version for the users. That gives you much flexibility to check everything out properly
    Muhammad Sadequl Islam | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sapling HR

    Sapling [HR] was our first and only HR automation platform. We ran a trial campaign with them and did not compare them to other vendors.

    Return on Investment

    Core HR

    • We can see our all details here like salary statement.
    • Payroll information(complete breakup of you compensation).
    • Claim different allowances with this tool and track it as well.
    • Track your time and attendance here.
    • We can modify the shift plan here and change the WOs but it will go for approval to your manager.
    • The process of changing the WOs, regularization is little difficult.
    Mohammad Equbal | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Sapling HR

    • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
    • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
    • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
