Pros: We have used PARiM to manage our staff, their shifts and absences in our Retail group for several years now. PARiM made it quick and easy to get started and schedule the staff. With its sortable, fast, unlimited database we can manage our flexible staff pool in seconds. It makes managing staff across several locations much quicker and simpler and gives me an overall view of staffing costs and levels

Using the Apps, staff can see their current, past and future shifts as well as their gross pay per shift so we receive far fewer pay and holiday queries.

Cons: Its not free software! Just needs integration with a payroll software to make it perfect. However its great value for money with excellent support from the PARiM team.

Overall: Time and cost savings across a range of areas in the payroll. Also far improved staff communication, staff now under their pay and holiday far better than ever before.

Many thanks for your review. Payroll software integration is one of our priorities and while we can't publicly state when it will be launched - we can confirm that we are working on it.

I've used PARiM for two separate companies now and it has been a life saver. Simple, efficient, easy

Pros: The customer service is unparalleled. Even being in a different timezone/country doesn't stop PARiM from answering my questions quickly. The layout is also very simple and easy to understand. For a big company with more than 300 employees, we had to find software that was easy enough to understand but also had all the features we wanted and PARiM allows us to have tons of different tools while still being easy to use. Our employees also love the app because now they can easily access their schedules from their phone on the go and everyone is alerted of schedule changes on their phones so there is no excuse for not knowing shift changes! Especially useful for employees who are students and are always busy and don't have time for complicated new software to get used to

Cons: There are not many negatives to be said about PARiM. Our only dislike is that some of the modules with extra features such as SMS messaging and other things cost extra.

For us PARiM ticks all the boxes

Pros: PARiM has ticked all the boxes for us and is extremely well supported by their team. We love the colour coding and the automated communication side of it which saves us a lot of admin time, emails and phone calls. We are slowly using more and more of the system and PARiM will suit us as we grow our business.

Cons: Any new additional features we could think of was getting added very quickly to the later version.

Overall: We are in the security sector and it saves us a lot of time and has some great security specific features like Lone Worker Check Calls and certificate tracking. We use the certificate tracking feature to give us reminders on all sorts of meetings and staff appraisals.

I like Parim

Pros: Has all of the features (and more) to make managing people, shifts, locations, pay grades, holidays, visa's, employee documents etc.

Cons: Can take some time to get used to, although, Parim can train you.

Overall: Good product, good support, excellent service levels. Easy to use once you've mastered all of the features, of which there are many. A good user tool when managing people with shifts.

Recommendations to other buyers: Good user portal for users, online help and chat is a great asset.

Thanks for the review and the comments.
We are creating a PARiM academy with extensive video tutorial library/ archive to make it easier. An initial package of online or in person training is always included though

Pros: Ease of use. It is simple (which is easier said than done in software design). The software is ease for administration and the app is easy for the employees including compatibility with all of the employee smart phones. The GPS and time-date reference is perfect for our business where employees have multi-site work schedules sometimes in same day. Recordkeeping is excellent but not differentiating factor.

Cons: It is difficult to find a flaw or weakness. I suppose the graphics from the report writer are simple but so what?

Overall: Scheduling employee shifts became 10x easier and gives us confidence that we can scale the business significantly without a big investment in this area.

Really like the modules and colour coding

Pros: We love PARiM and use quite a few of its modules. I really like the way you can colour code positions, absences and certificates so after a while you can see at a glance the status of everything. PARiM also allows us to decide for each site or event whether we want to allocate shifts or for staff to apply for them or a mixture of both.

Cons: There is nothing we do not like about PARiM. Any feature we could think of was getting added very quickly to their later version. Recently we've advised PARiM to devise a few extra things for their sub-contractor module and they are already working on it.

Pros: What it says it can do, it does well! My company demo'd plenty of systems and decided on Parim. It offers all the functionality you could require and more. Employee files can even contain a field for shoe size! It is as basic or advanced as your needs require.

We love the open shifts functionality - it helps to ensure cover for each shift!

Cons: The open shift functionality could be improved by changing the rate in which pay and charge is depending on how soon the shift is etc.

Probably something their team can implement for my companies specific needs.

Overall: An assured price per hour worked through the software, which gets cheaper the more you use it. No ridiculous rate which becomes more expensive the more you use it.

Outstanding in everyway

Comments: A professional team that have produced and outstanding product. This has reduced our administrative challenges with workforce management down to almost zero. The look and functionality of the system is great. Clean and crisp the dashboard features are excellent. The ability to swiftly communicate with specific groups of staff or our entire workforce at the click of a button has had a significant impact on the smooth running of our team. We estimate that the implementation of PARiM has saved nearly 40% of our entire booking team time. This has meant that we have been able to increase the capacity of our booking team and maximise the time we spend on positive engagement with our team members.

Pros: Time saving Massive increase in accuracy of team member booking Assists in the development of quaality team members

Cons: Touch of a button information for team members out on the ground

Great System - Easy Interface - Only pay for what you use!

Comments: As a National Security provider it is imperative we found a people management system that was both cost effective and most importantly ease to use for both our Control Room Staff and Security Officers on site. Creating new shifts, booking officers on, sending out rotas has previously been time consuming and a major burden on our limited resources, with this new software all of these tasks have been made simple. Within days of using the software I have seen increased productivity and finally feel we have found a solution that will allow us to improve the service offering we currently provide our clients. The Parim staff are quick to respond to our needs and we are very excited about the future. Overall I would recommend this system to those companies that are looking to either change their existing software or need a helping hand in managing their workforce.

Pros: Using PARiM has surprised me because it was a lot easier to use than I expected and saves me time in areas I hadn't considered like messaging my staff and communicating their rotas. I had just expected it to save me time scheduling staff but it does a whole lot more.

Cons: The check call module is a little temperamental and it would be good to be able to see which staff members live within a certain radius of client sites.

Overall: Very easy to use and good support

Thank you for your review. We would just like to note that since this spring (2018) you can sort staff by proximity to a given (client) location.

Learn more at: http://support.parim.co/admin-portal/schedule/smart-schedule-overview

We have also worked on further improvements to the check calls module.

Comments: We use PARiM¿s Event feature to manage our exam schedule and coordinate our invigilators, supervisors and qualified Cambridge English Examiners. It has made life a lot easier for us with everyone being able to see the exam schedule and Open Shifts. Support and help is immediately available whenever we have had issues. The system is a breath of fresh air and saves us a lot of time. PARiM share their development pipeline with us and keep us posted with new features that are coming out.

As our qualified examiners are monitored by Cambridge English Language Assessment, Parim has proven to be an immensely useful tool when it comes to allocating examining staff as it doesn't allow you to add staff unless they are qualified for that position and level. The reports we need are all there and available when we need them. Well done. A great job indeed!

Comments: Field Scope International has been using PARiM for 9 months to manage staff absence, our staff, their details and any extra work needed. Everyone has their own portal which means communication is simplified it saves on repetitive emails. We are always looking for tech tools like to help simplify what we do and PARiM has definitely ticked that box.

Pros: Before Parim we had quite a few staff members overlapping on holidays, Parim organises holidays and shift at a click of a button making staff management incredibly simple.

Comments: Using PARiM saves me time and money and makes my team¿s job easier. The PARiM team are always available to help and support their programme and listen to feedback. Our staff also benefits because they can see their schedule online as well as site maps and directions together with any site specific instructions. We have looked at a number of similar systems but have found that PARiM offers far more than any other solution. PARiM are constantly adding new features and looking at ways to improve the system. The recent check call addition has meant that PARiM is now able to compete with some of the more 'established' systems.

Pros: Great support, a development team that listens easy to use portals.

Cons: Can't think of any that are worth mentioning.

Comments: We have been using PARIM for 6 months and it has saved us a lot of time and effort managing our staff and scheduling their shifts/ creating a rota for them. The system automatically produces our timesheets and shift or schedule information is communicated automatically at the click of a button. We have encouraged staff to download the Apps to save on phone calls and texts. Customer support has been excellent and is very quick when compared to other software we¿ve tried."

Comments: PARiM is very easy to understand. The ease of creating positions, certificates and absences coupled with the great bulk upload options have meant it was a lot easier to get started than I thought it would be.

It means I can keep my business organised and view information whenever I am mobile. It is a very cost effective solution and I still can¿t believe how comprehensive it is for the price!

Comments: Using PARiM has revolutionised the way the Customer Services department at the theatre is run. We use a large flexible workforce and for the most part, thanks to PARiM, they self schedule. It has meant we have been able to control and manage our uniforms and staff details all in one place. We can contact PARiM through any careen within their program and they answer queries really quickly
