Sapling HR

It's a good space to have a high level overview of the organization (especially Org view).Places for improvement include extra levels of complexity when you need to click on the person and you are navigated to the pop-up that is hard to use and only one pop up can be used at a time. I wish there wasn't so much of clicking in and clicking out.

SentricHR works well with unusual situations in payroll - they understood that our payroll is not just a basic hourly/salaried situation and were able to create codes and functions to work with our exact needs.

Pros

Sapling HR

  • Very customizable. Very easy to create new workflows and tasks to meet the unique needs of your organization.
  • The system is easy to navigate, so minimal training is needed for users.
Aldo Gomez | TrustRadius Reviewer

SentricHR

  • Open Enrollment lets employees view and select the benefit they want for the following plan year. Sentric is easy to use and lets us in HR link their selection to their payroll records.
  • Sentric allows HR and the employee to view their paychecks. They can look at one, or many at a time.
  • When someone applies for a job via Sentric, their candidate records carry through to their employee record after we hire the person.
Amanda White | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Sapling HR

  • Deeper data management/review - dashboard experience could be better and deeper
  • Ability to drill into reports within the tool- right now it takes you out to a sheet to view
  • Org planning/org chart sharing
Adrienne Barnard | TrustRadius Reviewer

SentricHR

  • Make it easier to determine which report works best for our needs
  • Have the ability to create a custom report for specific instances
  • Other than that, they're perfect!

To use this system you need to buy several add-ons. If add-ons do not fit your business model you will have to access platforms from different companies. The system is not easy to use for onboarding. Candidates cannot change and update settings. To use the system a person must click in the correct spots. If not it leads you someplace else. Then you have to start clicking all over again.

Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

Alternatives Considered

Sapling HR

Sapling [HR] was our first and only HR automation platform. We ran a trial campaign with them and did not compare them to other vendors.

I haven't explored the other systems in great detail. IFS didn't appear as "user-friendly". Taleo seemed to not have the capabilities Sentric did.

Return on Investment

Sapling HR

  • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
  • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
  • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
