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?

Very well suited for permanent employees in global organizations.

Not well suited for contingent workforces as you have to pay for Oracle licenses for all of them. We are looking at moving some of our temporary associate payrolls to Oracle Cloud, but the license cost is prohibitive (even though they will not have access to most features within Oracle).

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.

  • Streamlines processes by making them consistent but also allows ability to slightly change those processes based upon business units needs.
  • With new newsfeed capabilities making system access more readily available to all users on all devices.
  • Allows for upgrades which allows end user to be on the most up to date product but now incorporates features to truly let you determine when to release those features.

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.

  • Reporting out of Taleo Learn is difficult.
  • Automation of performance plans in Taleo performance is difficult given our complexity
  • Historic performance records of terminated associates can be difficult to find due the the large number of previous associates records we have

Taleo does what we need it to do and based on the costs from both a time and money perspective, I don't see us changing anytime soon. If anything I think we will look to leverage the capabilities available that we may not already be using.

Oracle has an excellent support model. The challenge is in adopting this support model and making traditional IT and non-mature system administrators use this model. In combination with the Oracle Cloud (client) Community, the support is excellent.

There is a lot of potential on Fusion. We have reaped about 10% of potential benefits. Especially on Workforce Intelligence, the opportunities are huge. The reason why we do not use the solution at its full potential is not in the product (which is simple and transparent). A roadmap is under construction to bring more of its potential to the end user.

Alternatives Considered

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.

I personally liked using Bullhorn better, everything was easy to pick up on and flowed really nicely. I feel that it was very intuitive were as Taleo does not have the same flow to it. Bullhorn also has a modern look and the ability for me to open all the jobs I am currently working on and candidate profiles at the same time

Taleo (owned now by Oracle) continues to be an incredibly powerful product and it's scalability is among the most robust of any ATS in use today.

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.

  • Once Taleo is up and running at your organization you will see a ROI within your first hire. I was using a lot of outside vendors prior to using Taleo which typical cost me 20K per hire for an engineer. So it was clear to the CEO once I made my first hire using Taleo via a job posting or referral or sourcing method that the ATS was the way to go. He was quite pleased. Cut the vendor fees from 500K a year down to under 100K!
