If using an existing third-party ERP System, don't expect the information inbound from SilkRoad to integrate without many hours of work and research. There are some systems it will work with out of the box, but others will require a third-party consultant. Also, reporting requirements will not be met unless requests are sent directly to the software company.

SilkRoad Onboarding (RedCarpet) is excellent for new hires! A well-defined plan is needed to execute the onboarding experience, but these can be customized to be as extensive or as simplified as desired. There is a learning curve to learning to administer the software. Task management for departmental teams is relatively easy.

SilkRoad Onboarding is ideal for an HR team that wants to look like they have a ton of IT support building sites for them with the ease of being able to administrate it yourself. Also great for companies looking to go paperless.

It is well suited to larger; more complex organizations that require multiple workflows or have multiple brands. This system would be overkill to a small business that really doesn't have a large volume of hiring or a complex hiring process.

Onboarding in the USA!

RedCarpet is great for keeping onboarding organized and your work flow the way you need it to be so all internal paperwork requirements are done to your satisfaction. The biggest flaw and it's not really a RedCarpet flaw, is that some people are just not computer literate and we spend time walking them through completing their onboarding. This may be more common in our industry but it is the biggest challenge we have with using RedCarpet.

RedCarpet is great for automating onboarding tasks and ensuring that all of your new hires have a consistent experience. If you manage lots of moving parts in your onboarding (assigning a phone, computer, key card, collecting I-9s, W4s, direct deposit forms, etc...), RedCarpet may be a great tool to help you get organized.

As of mid year 2016, RedCarpet (now called Onboarding) has a new "look" which is wonderful and more user-friendly! We are not live on this yet, but hope to begin using it very soon. Clients are migrating over in the near future. Basic eForms are now able to be created with eSignatures by administrators; however, anything requiring routing or coding will still need to be done by their engineering team.

This product is ideal where customization based on type of employee, department, location, etc. is key. There is a high level of customization available in this product and is very good for larger organizations that need that level of detailed service and configuration. There is some significant up-front implementation costs, along with the annual maintenance fee, so it may not be suitable for smaller or some mid-sized businesses. Depending upon the required process improvement and customization involved, implementation can be lengthy. This is not a quick-start and inexpensive product, but will provide great results and very satisfied new hires from their perspective. We have had wonderful feedback!

Like any computer application, RedCarpet is better suited for populations that are comfortable using a computer. If your population is not computer literate, I would definitely think about whether a computer solution is right for you. Also, if you need the application available in another language, know that your team will be doing all of the translations.

If your main goal is to develop consistency in your processes, RedCarpet is a huge help. However, if you have employees who are less honest, it could pose a problem. For example, it would be very easy for an employee to indicate he/she completed tasks in the system without actually doing them. You have to ensure that tasks are actually getting done, not just being marked complete in the system to remove them from people's to-do list.

RedCarpet is a good system for standardization and timeliness for onboarding new employees. It provides dashboards for each person involved to see the status of events. I like how the system lists the dated tasks with the links to the other systems needed to complete the tasks. You get emails when tasks are due. If you need data for onboarding metrics or just simply dates and whom, you can get this from RedCarpet.

I would potentially recommend RedCarpet for a larger organization that has staff that can solely focus on building out the system and trouble shooting when problems arise. As someone who was the sole recruiter in addition to handling the RedCarpet implementation it was very difficult to move at the speed suggested by the RedCarpet Project Manager. It could potentially be easier for someone with more of a technical and marketing background.
