I am not fully convinced about factorial HR yet. We are about to transition to a new tool after using Recruitee for a long time. The bar was high when it came to recruitment ATS. and Factorial HR is multifaceted but not as well structured or functional. Support in other languages should also be improved, as those are the most common reviews I have seen online.

VAIRKKO is very well-suited to track HR information and scheduling. It is a bit more difficult to create training and disseminate it to employees, but once you get past the learning curve, it works nicely. It's easy to track your employees' certifications and credentials, with reminders for recertifying and the ability to update certs as needed. Scheduling is not difficult, and one can track staffing issues easily.

  • When I update an employee's general information page - if they do not have Custom User name listed - it puts my name in there and my password - when this happens the information I added is not going to be saved. If I am working on the top of the page - I don't see this unless I remember to check. Please don't let this be an automatic fill in.
  • Too many search tools - highlighting the most used would be great
  • When a person's schedule is changed - you lose their previous schedule. So when we need to look back and see when a person worked but realize they changed shifts and we no longer have it in Vairkko - it becomes very challenging.

I does not stack up very well. It's best feature is that it is a 360 HR platform, but it needs to evolve and improve. Recruitee and Teamtailor seem way better options, in my opinion, for the Applicant tracking system. Time off tends to get confusing at times, and employees prefer tools like bamboo or Roots, which integrate well with other tools.

Certification Cloud is easy to use and stands out from a pricing point of view. It just does the job at a really low price point

Return on Investment
Factorial
  • It has not had any impact. we are testing the tool for a while now, but we do not think it will make it to the end of the process.
  • It seems good for ATS but all other functionalities seemed to have been left behind.
  • I like that it allows managing posts and other things like internal social media and communities.

  • It's cleaned up our former filing process and simplified record access
  • It's allowed management to perform at-a-glance training performance, and given us the ability to modify our training on-the-fly.
