    Keeping an accurate time off calendar, with specific buckets, is extremely important. It has helped my company grow without having to manage things in Excel. Also, implementing an annual review process by using CakeHR has been very clean and transparent with my employees. This also allows me to see year over year. In years past, we used Word or a Jotform which made it challenging to pull up years past.

    It's a great intro into a workforce management tool, but our use of it is basically as a calendar without it being linked to our actual calendars. It's just another tab that we have to keep open throughout our workday. It's great that we're able to see everyone who is working at what time and what channel of support, but I believe that there are visual aids that can be added to it to make everything much easier to read and more user-friendly.

    Pros

    Sage HR

    • Employee self service - the apps and desktops GUIs are very intuitive.
    • Leave management - this manages itself through the app and system, saves lots of admin.
    • Customization - you can tailor the system more and more to suit your specific needs.
    • Updates and Customer Service - the CakeHR team gave dedicated a lot of time to bring out weekly updates and systems improvements which shows they are dedicated to making this a great product - the fact that they were bought by Se recently is also testament to their ongoing mission.

    Cons

    Sage HR

    • Updating information in a central location that implements changes across whole system.
    • Custom reporting and history
    • Time off policies tracking and management
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    • The ability to print a month view of the schedule would be a great benefit.
    • The signup list is a great feature, but there are too many steps to make it easy to use.
    • The bulk add and delete process works well, but tends to be confusing for users.

    Customer support is amazing. There are times I post a question and I don't get back to support. They will always follow-up with an email to make sure our questions are answered. I even had a call with Julianna who was wonderful and very personable. You definitely get a level us service that exceeds most companies. Keep up the good work CakeHR.

    For core HR functionality, this is the only product we use. For ATS, we have experimented with BreezyHR. We've learned that CakeHR is adding an ATS module soon though.

    We have not used another product like Shiftboard at our company.

    Return on Investment

    Sage HR

    • The system shows us all days off and overtime, so we can manage this and know everything is like agreed in the contract.
    • A simple and affordable system with room to grow.
    Maaike van der Kroon | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Shiftboard

    • Effective allocation to proper shows/projects for our network
    • Effectively catches any discrepancies between scheduled hours and actual hours for employees
    • Requires significant manpower to maintain scheduling accuracy
