Octopus HR

I would definitely recommend Octopus HR if companies need every employee, not just one HR team, to use it. I think it's too much and would suggest something like Taleo for one team to use.Key questions would be: Do you need a simple platform? Are you using this just for your HR team or will everyone need access? Is the way employees request PTO at your company disorganized?

Pros

Octopus HR

  • It's simple. I really appreciate that the layout of Octopus HR isn't something I have to question. I know where to look for something because it's clearly labeled, that's more than I can say for a lot of other HR systems I've seen.
  • Support. If I ever have a question about setting something up, or if something goes wrong, they're always on top of it. For instance, I had no idea how to set up employee photos on our accounts. I tweeted them and they responded right away, I'm based in LA and they're a UK company, I was impressed that they were able to respond right away. They make sure their customers are taken care of.
  • Great self guide. If there's ever an ordinary question I need answered their "Octopus Guide" is very thorough and walks you through everything.

Cons

Octopus HR

  • Adding employee photos. That's definitely something I think is hard to figure out on your own.
  • An easier way for users to retrieve their passwords. Sometimes I notice even when employees put in all the correct information, the system doesn't recognize it.

Employees don't complain about it! If anything they've commented on how nice of a tool it is to have.

Octopus HR

Very different platforms. You get a lot of bang for your buck using Octopus HR. It's a much more modern and simple layout and that's something forward thinking companies definitely enjoy.

We did not use OneSource Virtual to help us implement Workday. We used a competitor that did a fine job, but we quickly moved to OneSource Virtual post-implementation to take our tenant to the next level

Return on Investment

Octopus HR

  • Employee efficiency. There's never a question of who I request my time off with. The program sets up line managers who take in all the requests.
  • Less wasted time. Contact info and photo are very visible and easily accessed.

  • Payroll was painful in our old system. We would begin Monday morning and have to submit by noon on Wednesday and we always worked up to the very last minute, which often meant 12-hour days, and I knew we would end up losing good people if we didn’t solve these issues.
  • By implementing Workday and partnering with OSV, we’ve been able to streamline our processes and are able to get payroll done in two hours versus three days. Even better, our team is much happier and able to focus on more strategic and rewarding work.
