Key Findings:

  • Unified platform — The majority of users reported that the most beneficial aspect of HR management suite products was how they centralized payroll, talent management, and performance management processes. Users said that these products eased the planning and maintenance that administrators regularly did on existing employees, applicants, and new hires. Users liked that the tracking and retrieval of inputted records was relatively easy.
  • Not so easy to use — However, a dislike that was frequently mentioned in user reviews was the struggle of inputting that aforementioned data (employee history, job openings, etc.). Some users explained that the view of the data was either too granular or too singular, which made any self-service features of HR management suites difficult to learn.
