Comments: Kin has been a great tool for Chromatic. We haven't had any issues with usage or implementation with our team. It's intuitive and has most of the features we need. Support is fantastic and Kin definitely cares about their customers, which is a major plus. The only part of the software that is lacking for me, is reporting. It would be nice to be able to get to the data that is there in a more efficient way. Otherwise, no complaints! And I would recommend this to anyone needing an HR solution.

Pros: One-stop place for everything!

Cons: I wish the review area was easier to use. It is clunky when setting up. And sometimes employees don't know exactly where to put their responses. I wish when you setup the review, you could add fields for questions and response areas. Small Improvements has a great model that we used prior to switching over. The review area is ok, I just wish it was a bit more robust. Such as hiding what the employee says until they are ready for their employer to review it. Sometimes, people want to have time to reflect their thoughts before hitting send.

Overall: We are a small company with a dozen employees. KinHR not only allows us to track our personal time off efficiently, it keeps all of those necessary employee files in one location. I can quickly upload files that everyone needs - such as 401(k) documents, federal and state posters, and employee guides, manuals, and procedures to each employee. When someone has a question, I point to KinHR.

Also, we use the review and task areas of the software. No more pesky emails about tasks or paper files for reviews. Everything is there and you can go back and review easily what was assigned and what was discussed during review time. It is a great product that I would recommend to any small business owner!

Recommendations to other buyers: I just spoke to Lindsay - I am hoping you guys add a time clock in the near future. With the new overtime rule taking affect on Dec 1, this feature would be handy to have.

Pros: Great employee records; sane and easy to use time-off management; a method to keep notes on reviews and goals; a clean, friendly and simple design; excellent customer support with quick turn around times for questions.

Cons: Being in Canada, we wish there was a bit more tie-in to our countries rules and regulations around typical HR tasks.

Overall: Plank switched over the Kin in May 2014.

The Kin team made the process painless and trouble-free. Kin seemed like the right type of solution for us. We have on average 13 active users, and we use about 80% of the features offered. We were a bit worried with a SaaS solution, but the product has been rock solid with almost no issues and zero unscheduled downtime.

After 2 years we're still extremely happy.

Recommendations to other buyers: The Kin goals/reviews system actually inspired us to revamp our own internal process.

Great experience!

Pros: It's easy to use, intuitive, and they're always coming out with new, better features.

Cons: Can't think of much, though I'm eager for them to integrate a more in-depth performance review process.

Overall: We moved to KIN HR to consolidate our onboarding system and manage our time off - it's been a great experience from the UI experience to the customer service.

Recommendations to other buyers: Top-notch customer service - feel really valued and taken care of.

Pros: keeps track of it all. I combined all my hr docs related to time-off, annual reviews, policies and more into a simple to use, nicely designed one stop solution.

Cons: I haven't experienced one.

Overall: Uh, goodbye excel spreadsheet...Howdy KIN! 1st rate company with 1st rate associates! Lindsay has been great to work with, helping us streamline our process. If you're looking for a simple solution, KIN is it!

Recommendations to other buyers: Make sure you make a plan before diving into the software. It's simple to use, but is very powerful. I have found that if I create a solid plan before implementing into KIN, my confidence level is super high.
