SilkRoad Onboarding

I like the idea of RedCarpet. If it was fully functional for us, I really think it would be a great tool to use. However, the lack of response and the response time itself in tech support is definitely a downfall for our company

Cons

SilkRoad Onboarding

  • I am working with them right now to clarify some issues with E-Verify. While we love how it functions, we are curious as to how to access already verified cases online. Or what would happen if we were to ever move away from RedCarpet...how can we access our e-verify data? Currently, they do not have an answer to this. An area of improvement would be providing us with the login information to access whatever they are sending to e-verify in case we ever need to access it ourselves.
  • Cost for changes and E-forms. They will try and charge for everything possible after going live, so make sure you get as much done during implementation as possible. E-forms (typically about $500 for extra ones) can get costly, so try to think of ways to combine forms. For example, we created a multiple acknowledgement form so the associate only signs one e-form, but reviews about 8 PDF policies. This helped cut costs drastically.
  • RedCarpet cannot differentiate between week days and weekends. This can get frustrating because it will send reminders and emails out over the weekend, so an employee could return to their desk on Monday with a bunch of reminders that piled up over the weekend. They should improve it to recognize not to send out tasks over the weekend.

Excellent features and comprehensive, but complex as compared to some other systems.

The individual contact people are alot more helpful than support@silkroad.com. However, once you're live, you're not supposed to use those contact people anymore, and it takes a couple days to even get an initial response from support.

Implementation

Based on 1 answer
SilkRoad's training/demo video was viewed well prior to beginning implementation. HR Team did not remember details and the video was not sufficient enough to understand all of the features within the system in order to communicate needs to the vendor/implementation expert. Implementation should have been walked through, step by step, by the vendor and each section of their required spreadsheet and the development of the portal should have been explained in depth.
