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?

It is great for housing a lot of information and being able to find it quickly.It is not great for if you are wanting to open more than one account at a time and be able to view them together. It would be nice to be able to open multiple clients and have tabs open from the same log in

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.

  • It would be nice to have a preview of some of the tabs because digging in it can be easy to get lost
  • If when looking at a report name toggling over the name would show a report example. There are so many it is hard to find which one you are looking for

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.

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.

  • Positively been a one-stop shop.
  • The ATS could have better notifications and task settings for clients, and we have lost clients because of it.
