Pros: Simple design and the ability to allow the employee to enter their own days off for approval. It's one more task I don't have to think much about. It just happens keeps up with it all.

Cons: A few things have been hard to find. When we first started using it, I thought to locate where things were was a little complicated. We navigate it pretty well now.

Overall: Tracking employee vacations is the best part for me.

Fantastic easy to use leave management software.

Pros: Very easy for staff to be able to request time off and for managers to approve these requests. The interface is laid out well and is very easy to use for both management and staff alike.

Cons: The app has limited functionality, there is no option to facilitate scheduling and rotas for staff members, it is not possible to define different hours on a weekend (each day worked is assumed to be the same number of hours). There has also been an issue that i believe remained unfixed where the annual leave year commences on the same day as a public holiday. It throws the whole system off.

Overall: Our previous leave management was managed using spreadsheets and this has made things a lot easier.

Appropriate and effective tool to successfully handle every HR related matter.

Pros: An easy to use and a truly intuitive software with an user-friendly interface. The functions are presented in one menu and adjusted to the needs of every business.

Cons: Notification settings are too general so I kept on receiving notifications that did not apply to me. However, it was dealt with in due time after my kind advice their pro customer approach.

Overall: Easy time & work management, easy in-company communication, clear work schedule.

Setup and use were without issues, we used it for a team of about 10.

Pros: Just works. Makes everything transparent for employees, and it requires 0 training for them to use it

Cons: There was a bug in the acurrment calculation but not really a big issue. It would be nice to attach documents to time off for thinks like sickleave

Needs more descriptions and setup help a lot of the sections are confusing

Pros: Organizing data, calculating vacations, attaching assets and hire-chary section. Vacations requests

Cons: Mobile app and one of the most features that need improvement is offboarding and tasks, sometimes I completed them or someone else does and I still have the tasks in my dashboard.

It`s a useful tool helps our company to master out HR issues.

Pros: I like especially the look and feel of the software and that it works quite intuitively. Also, the dashboards are great.

Cons: It would be great if one could configurate it a little bit more. For example the holiday practices. And the user rights, e.g. so that all users could see each others' work contact details.
Also, it would be great to have a personal training section for each member of the personnel.

Overall: ToDo -lists and deadlines (e.g. Onboarding and offboarding activities are now under control.)
Directories and archives (e.g. company assets and documentation)

Officevibe is a great tool for assessing your team's happiness and culture.

Pros: I like the ease of use and the range of information that is supplied in the reports. The fact that the employee can customise when they will receive their questionnaire is also very helpful.

Cons: I think that the software can be used by employees as a venting room. Often negative comments are made for the sake of making a negative comment, and once we reply to assess where we can help, the employee hides and does not engage further. I think there should be more encouragement within the answers to suggest solutions to resolve issues rather than just vent about them.

Great HR software for small teams.

Pros: Shows how much holiday allowance is left in a straight forward manner. Very user friendly and simple to navigate around the site.

Cons: The price went up recently which isn't ideal as we're not getting more for our money. Probably could offer more things on the site.

Cake HR has removed the headache of having to keep track of each team member's time off requests.

Pros: I like the ability to create custom time-off fields for employees and being able to see everyone's future time-off requests for planning purposes. The "reporting" is very helpful for managers to use during our annual performance review process. Being able to color code the time-off fields makes the platform attractive on both desktop and mobile. I love being able to store HR-related documents for easy access. The entire platform has made our HR processes more efficient. LOVE, LOVE , LOVE!! :)

Cons: As an administrator/manager of the software, I find it difficult to navigate on my Android phone. I don't like being limited to this as I sometimes have to approve individual "time off" requests in the absence of the company President and when I am away from the office.

Overall: The software nearly runs by itself - as long as each user is trained properly. This allows the Administrators to focus on other important tasks.

Pros: For our company, it greatly simplifies the managing the holiday entitlement of our employees. Our employees appreciate the real-time view of their day-off and holiday balance.

Cons: - Day Offs:
In our company the day offs are flexible. Employees are supposed to take 2 day-offs per week, but sometimes these day-offs are shifted to the next week. (It's always within the same month though.)

It would be great to have some way to be alerted/monitor if someone requests more day-offs than they are entitled to. Right now I have to count the day off requests to make sure it's within their day-off limit. (Right now a staff could request more day-offs that they are entitled to.)

Having this said, I don't want it to be shown as a yearly quota, same holidays and public holidays, as these days can be taken anytime, while day-offs are not of that nature. However, a monthly quota would be fine.

- Time Tracking:
What is definitely missing is time tracking (for which we use HubStaff now) and overtime/undertime tracking. Our employees track their working time, and have a floating balance of time. Cake would be the complete and perfect HR solution if there was everything at a glance - the balance of Holiday, Public Holiday, Sick Days, Day-Offs and Over/Undertime.

Ideally, being able to differentiate between freelancers and full-time staff - where freelancer time results in salary and full-time staff time results in time balance.
Also, overtime should be able to be mutated (to holiday / day-off) or pay-off (define a per-hour amount for the time, calculate the pay-off, deduct the time from the balance.)

so far it's been good

Pros: The UI is great and the work flow of the platform is intuitive. The customer support has been awesome as well.

Cons: It's really just lacking in some features we need but the features that do work, work well. Becuase we are still reliant on our current platform to serve our needs. We don't get as much use out of Cake.Hr as I feel like we could. We were told new features will be released in late August early September so we're waiting for those to determine whether or not we work Cake.Hr into a permanent part of our business processes.

Overall: organise our team paperwork and onboard new members as well as track employee information as well as GENERAL schedules in one central location

Pros: The dashboard is my favorite feature. After about a year I have the perfect system set up to control all my own tasks while managing and overseeing everyone's tasks in the company. Timesheets are also great.

Cons: Creating recurring tasks can be tedious. Support helped me figure out a way to duplicate entire projects, but then making changes don't apply across the board. If there was more ease of use, Wrike would be perfect.

Overall: Total organization of our company's tasks and projects.

Comments: It has been several months of using Cakehr and all i can say is that i really really love the system. Very easy to use, has reduced our paperwork and printing costs especially since employees request for their leave online, onboarding is so much easier now that each of the us knows what is expected of them when a new employee arrives. I CANNOT fail to mention how happy we were when cakehr(Lee) allowed us to use the system free of charge in November and Dec 2016 since our budget didn't allow us to pay then. In addition, they discounted 2017 subscription by 2 months!!! Why should i shopped anywhere else when cakehr has been this good!!!
Sadly though, am yet to settle 2017 subscription but i endeavor to very soon. Thank you Cakehr!

Overall: Cake is a great tool to manage an office. Since we have started using it we have nothing but great experiences with it. The support team is great and very quick to respond. I wish I required more of its functionality because it would make my life that much easier! I would definitely recommend it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Keep on doing a great job taking care of the customers!

Overall: Our scout for the best product stopped after we found cake.hr. It's the best value for money product out there. Couple that with best customer support, your search for a HR software ends there. Obviously they need to quickly load it with more features that are essential, but I do see these guys moving in that direction

Comments: While using CakeHR as a tool for absences, I found out that it is also a good start for newcomers to the team, as it allows a first intro with the team, through the team directory. Moreover, you can get reports about everything or everyone. Finally, the most important thing is that new features are added constantly, making you feel that it gets more and more customized to your team's needs.

Hi Martins! It is great to have you with us and I have great news for you in terms of overtime management of employees. We're due to be launching this in just a couple of months - time sheets along with employee schedule planning will be a huge and powerful feature that will work alongside leave management to be the one-stop solution for employee time and leave management

I strongly recommend it for any small to medium sized company.

Comments: Cake does a great job simplifying the HR process with intuitive user setup and calendar management. The reporting tools are effective as well. It is lacking in features to support larger (or rapidly expanding) enterprises, such as a bulk user creation and full timesheet/payroll management (it only handles vacation time). This is more than made up for with a highly responsive account/service team.

Pros: Simple, intuitive interface.

Cons: Is not a complete HR solution for payroll and timesheet management (yet).

Recommendations to other buyers: A great solution for small- to mid-size organizations that need to aggregate their vacation calendar request/tracking process.

Cons: Would like to see more detailed customization such as:
View my PTO balance as days remaining for year vs. days accrued thus far
For PTO less than a full day, it would be nice to enter the exact time the employee wiht be out of the office.
More control over notifications for Admin level users.

Overall: Working with CakeHR has been a dream! There interface is incredibly user-friendly and makes managing our PTO policies a breeze. Managers love being able to accept/deny requests directly via the email notifications, and our employees love having quick access to submit time on the mobile app.

CakeHR is well thought out and designed, but our company has a few needs that CAKE does not directly meet. However, their support team is absolutely tremendous! They respond very quickly despite the time zone difference, they are always asking and open to our requests for features, and they immediately jump on any issues we encounter and resolve them with flying colors!

Finally, we love the integrations with other apps and our IT guys love being able to use their API to sync employee data to our internal company pages, simplifying PTO for our employees even more.

The development team are always trying to improve the interface and add functionality which is great.

Hey Jacques! Great feedback - very constructive and needed. We are constantly improving the application based on needs in HR and management and feedback of how the application is operating. We are currently about to release a big update were the entire application is refactored meaning that load times across the application are increased and allows us to build on the application without being a heavy load! Soon you will see a massive improvement :) It would be great for us to go through the other points you have made as I am interested in what did not change immediately. I have not heard of that occurring before so that is interesting. Let us schedule a time to speak early this week and go through the points :) Many thanks for your subscription! Lee

The interface is so user-friendly, easy to use, and intuitive. The cost is extremely reasonable, and I must say the customer service has been fantastic. Lee spent over 30 minutes working with me on one issue to customize the service for our needs! CakeHR is constantly taking in customer feedback and releases new updates and functionality every Thursday and Friday. A wonderful product, thank you!

Mindy! Thanks! I was really happy with was that we resolved the issues of settings your policies with our dynamic settings despite US States having crazy laws for time off. And, despite staying in the office later, my dinner was warm and girlfriend happy :D Glad you are with us!

It is great when a company can offer a "solution" or employees and even greater when this solution is CakeHR! We have plans for new language version of CakeHR in 2016 so once they are released, I will surely let you know! Thanks again :) Lee

Comments: First time I started using cake hr, I realized it fits perfectly to my needs. Easy to use and simple to understand of how it works, it has all the features required for time off management and a great support team, always ready to help out.

I'd like to simply put it as "Cake hr has uncomplicated time off management for me"

What I'm looking forward to is the Slack integration!!!

Hey Milosha! It has been great to work with you and so pleased that CakeHR is fitting for Diet Code. Thanks to your suggestion, the Slack integration will be released very very soon. I'm looking forward to it too!

Comments: Working with the CakeHR system is really great.
First, you don't have to go through a tedious and time-consuming training since this tool is very intuitive and you learn very quickly how to use all of its features.
Besides its user-friendliness, it is also a very efficient and powerful system which includes all the tools that are essential.
To sum up: a fantastic tool I would highly recommend!

Thanks Wasseem! It is great to hear that not only do we have the right tools and features but also the user-experience is on point too! We aim to increase this week by week with little touches but it is something that we hear a lot of. Sometimes, you just have to trawl through pages to find what you are looking for - with CakeHR, you have it all in no more than 2 clicks away. Glad to have you with us!

Impressive, no fuss, tidy little package.

Comments: I've been trailing CakeHR for two days. Below is my experience so far.

What I really love:
1. In the cloud. We're a cloud based company ourselves so this is a massive plus for me.
2. Nice friendly UI. Easy on the eye, logical flow, nice modals, profile pictures for team members.
3. Can add additional Time-Off Policies other than Holiday & Sickday.
4. Can add Public Holidays that don't count as team holidays taken.
5. Can add Black Out days where no one can book holidays on certain dates.
6. Ability to hide certain tabs from team members like Benefits, Documents, Emergency etc.
7. Can hide calendar from other team members so they can't see who's on holiday etc.
8. Can add categories to Documents.
9. Lots of reporting! Bradford Factor & Employee Growth is a nice touch.
10. Can create teams, support team, dev team etc.
11. Ability for team member to log in and submit holiday requests. This isn't something I've enabled yet as I'm still trying out CakeHR however I can definitely see the benefits of this - less emails & notes!

I'm not calling this list 'Cons' as I don't have any cons. The below points are suggestions:

1. I had to add each Black Out day individually. We have a 6 week period where no one can take holidays. Would be nice to have a start and end date ability here.
2. An app. How cool would it be to have a CakeHR app that you can approve/decline requests on the spot & see who's available on your team that day. I know I'd use it! Android of course ;)

I really love CakeHR's approach to time off management and would recommend to anyone with no hesitation.

Comments: Pro - nice centralized system. Easy to add time off for various reasons.
Con - terminated employee records are not archived - they are deleted (not good if payout is disputed)
- no warning given if approving a request for time off for an employee who is over their accrued time off entitlement

Hey Sarah! Thank you very much for your review and it is great you give balanced feedback - in any case, it helps us provide an excellent app and service to you. I will be contacting you personally to introduce you to the features that may not be clear to you right now - but they are there :) I will also use the opportunity to understand more of what you would like to see in the application too as that would be a great UX help for everybody!

Therese, thank you! Having Consider Digital with us has been an asset to our company too! It goes to show that no matter where you are in the world, applications and support can meet at any time. Thanks for pointing out other features too! It is important for managers to see all employee information at any time rather than trawl through folders, documents and spreadsheets.

Best customer service!

Comments: We've been using Cake.hr for six months or so and not only is it easy to use, to understand, and to implement the HR factor into our small business (nonprofit) but Lee has called me personally three or four times to check up on how we like the business, are we figuring it out all right, do we have any suggestions, etc. I was having a browser issue with Cake.hr and he stayed on the phone with me while we figured it out, even though it had NOTHING to do with his end of things. He's always pleasant and even the help bubble on the site is helpful (which cannot be said for all help chat bubbles).

Thanks Jenny! It was really interesting for me to work with you during your free trial and I enjoy our little catch up conversations too - it certainly helps me hear a familiar and friendly voice once in a while :) Any issues you do have, we want to make sure that you are confident in our application and service so, there really is no problem in me getting to the bottom of issues that may not be related to us. It actually helps us understand more about what you may experience so we can improve things in the future!

Comments: We're been looking for a basic tool that let's us manage our employee PTO request. There are tons over overly complex systems out there, but we're a small agency and we just wanted an that would let our employees request time off, see their remaining vacation days, and who else might be out at that time.

CakeHR does all the above, and is simple to use.
