HRIS software made for Canada

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: Folks HR (used to be called Allié RH back in the day) is a solid solution for Canadian SMBs.
Their support is GOLD and this is honestly one of the key reasons to switch. If you are tired of having to deal with long wait times between tickets, Folks HR is the way to go.

Pros:

- bilingual HR software, it's a must for a company operating in Canada and Quebec. - great KPI module to help managers reach their HR goals - timesheet PER project (what a lifesaver!) - great value for money

Cons:

- no e-signature and that's a bit annoying but we can absolutely manage without it - the demo is a real demo not a trial

I dread using Folks

1.0 6 months ago

Pros:

Unfortunately, there is nothing I like about this product.

Cons:

This tool drives me up the wall. Have used it both as an employee and a manager. - No SSO support, annoying email "2-factor" login. - Very clunky UX unclear where I will find different functionality. - UI is not engaging, it's not "fun" to use. I don't feel like I am getting any work done. - I work in a fully web-app environment, this is the only app that routine fails to load. - Routinely fails to save input information making me have to review everything numerous times, save a draft outside of the tool in case of failure.

Awesome overall product

5.0 3 years ago

Pros:

The functionality but most of all the implementation team!

Cons:

The fact that the menu closes if the mouse isn't over it, I wish it would stay open!
