SilkRoad Onboarding is a component of the SilkRoad Life Suite platform. It includes functionality for onboarding, including electronic offer support, retention during Mergers & Acquisitions, and offboarding personnel. It is optimized for enterprise organizations.Can see the potential, if was fully functional.We use RedCarpet internally to onboard our new internal employees. So administratively, it is only used by our corporate HR staff, not company wide. The system sends out a welcome email and is a great introduction for our new employees to the company. The portal has options for them to view their orientation schedule, benefit information, and other company info. It also allows them to get a head-start on their paperwork they need to complete so they don't have to spend too much of their first day of orientation completing it. RedCarpet is a great reminder system for our new employees so they make sure they bring everything they need to on their first day as well.,RedCarpet is a great system for notifications. It will let you and the employee know if there are items that still need to be completed. RedCarpet is very handy for getting a headstart on paperwork that needs to be completed and stores it all in one place. It's very easy to access completed paperwork and print it out if necessary. RedCarpet is user friendly from the employee side. It's easy to use and navigate through the tabs and task lists.,Tech support is one major issue. We have problems with single sign on and silkroad is not very good with response time or keeping us posted on if they are working on our issue. RedCarpet won't let us set up the talent portal at a later time. This causes some issues and confuses our new employees on how to access the onboarding portal. Once we switch an employee over to single sign on, they are no longer able to access or complete any tasks. We have to send out lists of compatible browsers with our welcome emails as not all people have chrome and will have to download it in order to even login and use RedCarpet.,5,Faster, smoother onboarding process since you can set due dates for when paperwork and tasks need to be completed. Has decreased employee efficiency with all the problems we've had rolling out the program (technical wise),3,Yes,Our specific conctact people are quick to respond and will help escalate an issue if need be.,Adding new employees to events is easy. Accessing completed forms or searching for employees is easy. Creating events and tasts is easy.,Adding forms to tasks Figuring out the correct notifications. You either get a million notification, or too few.,7

The individual contact people are alot more helpful than 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.
