Pros: OrangeHRM was one of the best open source free to use softwares I could find for HR Management. It offers time management, tracks vacation days, expenses and training. It even keeps all the documents for personnel in one easy to find place.

Cons: Changing the taxes were a bit difficult at first since we're not in America, but it's one of the pros to being open source

Pros: It is intuitive software, with all the basic options that a human resources department may need. It has modules that we use frequently as the Recruitment module and Time Attendance.

Cons: For us this software covers all our needs; However, our human resources team is located in a spanish speaking country. The software translation is not good enough; but we have still adapted ourselves to use it

Overall: We are a small company; However, OrangeHRM has helped us with our human resources tasks in a simple way and avoiding long hours of learning and implementation

Overall: thank you for this great software , which makes it easy for starters with no sweat.
i was looking for a software which helps to allocate our workers leaves & the current attendance, so that we can make the week & month planning. we are a small group with small works which take only a few hours and large works which take many months. We want to be able to easily create our planning day by day without forgetting any of our 30 workers (which happens sometimes....)

Recommendations to other buyers: if you'r a starter , this is the software for you

Comments: The product does what it says it does, but the user interface is not always intuitive and many of the leave tracking pieces have been confusing for our employees. My real problem is with customer support. For example to add a new type of leave, you have to have the folks at Orange add it. I called our original contact from orange and received a different person's voicemail. I left a message and haven't heard back. I don't have time to chase down the correct people. We also requested a custom change that we thought would be very simple. We wanted to customize Friday's in the leave module to be 7 hr days while the other 4 working days would remain 8 hr days. The cost to do this change was over triple what it cost us to buy the original product. We weren't warned of the cost of this change during the sales and marketing process and it took a bunch of follow up to even get the quote after the product was implemented. I would say this isn't a bad product for the price, but they could certainly improve in a few areas.

Pros: Central management of employee information and leave management. The asset tracker is nice. Reasonable cost for out of the box product.

Cons: Customer support is minimal. Some UI issues.

Comments: After a test phase (kind of a Proof of Concept), we decided to use OrangeHRM Open Source + LDAP plug-in. Employees were upset with old leaving request procedures based on documents, forms and email. Now the system has been running a whole year, and everybody loves its simplicity.

Pros: Functionalities included in OrangeHRM Open Source are very useful. Simple and clear database schema. Online demo environment. A good channel in YouTube.

Cons: Lack of a clear release policy (i.e. quarter or year updates). The last two versions of Open Source edition are 3.3.3 and 3.3.2 published in 2016-09-28 and 2015-08-04 respectively while commercial versions are in 5.2 branch. Forums do not work (http://forum.orangehrm.com) and wiki is not updated (http://wiki.orangehrm.com). The Spanish translation is not usable in Spain. We have maid our own translation but we have no official place to share it.

Recommendations to other buyers: Invest time in testing different software alternatives before choosing one of them. Besides software features and functionalities, think of the availability of local support. Remote support could be enought, but a big gap in time zones could be a handicap.

Pros: 1. What would you do if you were Black?

Would have held meeting with 3 front line supervisors and convinced them for restructuring of salaries.

Secondly addressing the team of senior management (3supervisor, 1hr director, any one male senior counterpart from remaining male strength) about this salary alignment process too.

Taken everyone's thought and suggestions too as this step would bring in streamlining of salary, sex equality and more team spirit.

Comments: Although my group is kind of a different breed, we use a different style of hierarchy. We use more of a military style of ranking, and are spaced all through the US. What I do like about this software is ease of importing certs in the person contact info. It still is a little learning curve for someone like myself that does not do a lot of HR stuff. But for a way to organize all my people and the qualifications it works.

Comments: Pro: For a non profit organisation it is for a part what we need. I adapted some labels to meet our needs and I have no programming skills to do that. Changed the logo, changed some titles and hide what we will not use. It was not that difficult to give access to others as supervisors to access their members files to make some changes on it. We use the 3.3 version and works just fine.

Con: Maybe it is somehow not lightweight as it is slow, but hardware play a role on it. The import works fine, but when we have to transfer our database to another server, we can just transfer the basic employee information, and all other work has to be done over again. Just reinstall the orangehrm does not work with a existing database, need a empty one, or empting your existing database with the same result as no import for all data you have stored until then, even with a data export-import, it gives error messages and no data inported.

But, I'm very pleased with this orangeware.

Pros: Ease of use, amount of features, affordability. The element of job listing is very handy and professional, gathering potential candidates and convert them to employees. All important employee information fields are there and there is an option to create custom fields which is really useful

Cons: Menu might need some correction to be more easy to use. Need better visualisation preferably in calendar of taken holidays. More custom fields, and different types of fields would be welcome.

Recommendations to other buyers: Look for Open Source software you can try, expensive solutions once implemented might not meet your expectations and once you're in the trial you often stay with the wrong software.

Comments: As a start up company our budget on spending is always limited and one of our main targets is to try to get the most benefits in the lowest price. Towards this direction we started using Orange HRM system which is totally free. I strongly believe that it is totally suitable for a company with around 25 to 50 employees. You can always keep great track of useful information about your personnel, their benefits, manage perfectly the leave of theirs but also allows employee self service features. I would not suggest though for recruitment as there are few other, more powerful software out there for this aspect.

Pros: Personnel information management

Cons: Recruitment features are not really competitive

Comments: We had a good start with this e-leave system and the following elements/features need to be configured:

1. Medical leave and how to attach the scanned copies of m/c's for HOD's approval
2. Compassionate leaves, current entitlement is 2 days
3. Bereavement leaves- 4 days
4. Maternity leaves- 60 days
5. Marriage leaves- 4 days

Comments: Once I got it configured correctly, Orange HRM provides the best _free_ timesheet tool that I could find. It's usable from anywhere, contains reporting functions and is quick and easy to use for both users, managers and administrators.
Given our small size we don't need to use the system for anything else.
Note that I have Ornage HRM installed on a Synology NAS box.

Comments: When in need for a specialized software in the work place and on a tight budget for SMB practices FLOSS software usually is my first avenue of exploration. Working as an IT consulting company for multiple vet clinics we were in need of a simple hr/time recording system that could be deployed within minutes and easy to maintain; something we found in OrangeHRM.

We primarily use OrangHRM 3.1.1 for time sheets, attendance records and employee information. The ease of use for logging hours and pulling reports is dead simple and is easy to work with.

Pros:
- Easy install with multiple options and documentation available
- Open source with options of paid support and hosting options
- Consistent performance
- Ease of use

Cons:
- Data backup is not built into the product (documentation for manual database backup/restoration available on forums)
- Software updates are not performed from web console/gui
- Feature sets limited to which product version utilized (most FLOSS products do this)
- Reporting functions leave room to be desired

Overall OrangeHRM is a fantastic product that can be easily deployed and setup within hours. With it's simple interface and user experience your office setups can greatly benefit from utilizing OrangeHRM. Keep in mind that if you are not paying for the hosted version/support you will need to take steps to ensure data backup policies and staying up to date with the software. Though this process is not difficult it is cumbersome and should be considered when weighing the costs and benefits in your decision making process.

Comments: Pros:
-It stores lots of information, and easy to upload different files.

-As its on the internet (unlike most HR systems that are applications/programs) you can easily log in from home/other PCs and access employee data on the go.

- Different access types for different users for eg. hr manager Vs payroll Vs IT

Some cons:
- If you want to make the same change to multiple employees, you can't highlight or tick the box and apply that change to all, so you have to go in individually for each which is time consuming. For eg. changing a report to for a new supervisor or changing all employees to the same job role/part-time/full-time etc.
- American system so some tabs do not apply to European HR/Payroll and have to be changed in development.
- Would also be great if you could link your microsoft office calender to Orange for eg to track visa/ID expiry dates or end of contract dates.

A Cloud Based HRM Application We Could Not Do Without

Overall
5 / 5
Ease of Use
5 / 5

Comments: We researched several HRM applications at the time we decided to transition away from our prior system. We weighed all options and made the decision to go with OrangeHRM.

Pros:

o Excellent customer support
o Very easy and functional report generator application for ad-hoc reporting
o Easy to use timesheet tracking built as module within the system
o Leave tracking seemed to happen effortlessly
o Extremely user friendly, pleasant interface both for staff and the company
o Easy custom fields in addition to more complex customization options
o Recruitment module
o Performance Module for annual and 6 month new hire reviews
o Very knowledgeable and helpful sales contact
o Easy and intuitive navigation within the system
o Fantastic training
o Will soon have mobile application of their cloud-based software
o Company is very open to client feedback
o The portal is customized with your logo and colors so it has your branding

Cons

o It's hard to think of a con realistically, as if there is anything that we need to be done with the system, we know it can be addressed. The defaults may not be what we'd always like, but it's fine as we can modify it to meet out needs. So what may start out as a 'con' in this area turns into a 'pro' as in the end you have the system you'd like to have.

o There is no integration with outside applications (i.e., payroll). This is not a con for us as we have no need for this - but for some companies seeking this, it is not part of this application's functionality. OrangeHRM doesn't try to be all things to all people like some HRM systems - which then end up being costly and much more complicated - but they have developed a solid HRM system with a very easy user interface for those companies looking for this.

I would highly recommend at least exploring this solution when researching HRM options. This has been a fantastic decision for our company.

My comment for now is that, regarding the leave feature, it should have a connection with our employees, i mean, that they will apply leave thru email and it will be reflected in this software in the "Pending Leave Request". Hopefully you can improve this software..It's really helpful!

Comments: The product itself is user friendly - however there are constant upgrades which seem to create bugs which are found only by the system users and not the provider. Outside of my service rep (Shaun), the system support is virtually nil. I have found that either the system "experts" are either lacking knowledge in the product upgrades or that they are not interesting in supporting their clients in general. Again, my service rep Shaun Bradley has done a terrific job in making himself available to fill in gaps when service support has been non-existent, however there needs to be a more dedicated, helpful support outside of that one resource.
