- Time off policies are clear and transparent.
- The review process functionality was extremely easy to use.
- Support is outstanding . If you ever run into an issue they are always available to help.
- Onboarding document control is really easy to manage and stays consistent with a growing company.
- A few more override features for time off. For example, I would like certain people to get notified of PTO. CakeHR can't do this currently. So I had to grant authority to approve, which gave my admin the ability to see the email of approval.
- Day Off Requests
- Management Approvals
- Setting up unique holidays can be a little confusing
- Setting specific profiles for employees is a little tricky
This system allows for a good deal of employee self-service through the desktop and mobile apps and speeds up their onboarding/removes the associated HR admin so we can focus on the person rather than the papers.
- 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.
- Only minor tweaks to the functionality that they have queued to implement anyway.
- The recipe functionality can be improved as some of the functions are still a bit buggy.
It could be used for bigger enterprises but depends on the features big firms would want - cakeHR is still growing and now with Sage, I think they will be able to target the big firms.
- It's easy to find when dates previously booked are accepted/denied.
- It generates the acceptance of time requested off.
- CakeHR can be requested to remove time off as well.
- Calendar could be offered in a larger view by week
- Requesting time and accepting it would be great if linked with our own calendar Bookeo
- Super easy and usable system.
- Great customer service; listens to feedback and does something with it, answers really quickly.
- A good overview per team for managers.
- An app available for every employee to quickly arrange a request.
- Not all features for an HR system are available in CakeHR, but they are working on it to improve and expand
- Amazing customer service. Questions have been answered fast and product updates were even made based on feedback.
- Requesting time off interface is nice for employees and managers. There is also a native mobile app available too.
- Priced very reasonably.
- Some features available in other HR products have not been available in Cake in the past (Performance, ATS), however, these are being rolled out now.
- The user experience for the Admin interface is not completely intuitive.
- Overall look and feel could be updated one day.
