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.

Zoho People

Zoho People is very well suited to larger companies or companies that are working partly or exclusively online. It can take the place of your time-tracking systems which is a cost and time-saver since all information is in one, integrated place. If you have an HR team that prefers old-school paper tracking or if you have a smaller team this may not be a necessary system for you.

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

Zoho People

  • We have had some trouble recently with getting new users set up. However, the support team at Zoho has been really responsive and helpful, so that's nice.

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.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho People

Zoho People is a unique platform because it is fast and reliable.Moreover, Zoho People distinguishes itself from other tools because of its amazing security features. It does not expose our employees' data to other people. Moreover, Zoho People is easy to customize because its features are easy to understand.

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.
Aldo Gomez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho People

  • Reduces the need for additional systems like time-tracking, excess excel spreadsheets and even HR training itself with their training resources
  • Streamlines assessment of data and categorizes leave, on-boarding and other data logically which decreases time spent searching and separating
  • Customization of forms and surveys is extremely useful and saves effort looking elsewhere for templates
