Collage Overview

What is Collage?

Collage is a cloud-based HR & benefits solution that offers small and medium businesses everything they need to run a better organization. Collage’s features include employee records managing, time off tracking, digital onboarding, applicant tracking (ATS), HR reports, and performance management, all in one, easy-to-use place. It’s free to sign up and create a test account.

From the moment an employee applies to your organization, they will be entered into the Collage ATS. This feature allows you to build a customized careers page and job postings, source and track applicants, and follow them through your tailored interview funnel.

Once hired, they are seamlessly directed to Collage digital onboarding. Thanks to digital document storage, e-signatures, and a training module, new employees can quickly get up-to-speed while keeping your business compliant.

Within the platform, employees’ time off requests, benefits administration, performance reviews, personal notes, and even compensation history are securely stored and kept up-to-date.

In addition to seamless and all-in-one HR technology, Collage’s team consists of certified HR professionals who are available by email, phone, or live-chat to answer either employer or employee questions regarding HR.

Collage’s benefits technology is one of the first of its kind to digitally sync group benefits, reducing clerical errors by up to 30% and ensuring that changes to an employee’s information are reflected within 24 hours.

From record keeping to time off requests to collecting tax and benefits information, Collage provides a central hub for all HR related tasks, programs, and documentation.

Intuitive, great HRIS with excellent customer service

It's been amazing for the price, the whole company has really adopted it quickly, even the older staff. It's a beautiful user interface to be honest, we have removed a lot of issues around time-off and around performance management and saved on recruiting costs.

Our company loves Collage!

We did not have an HRIS before Collage so we improved so many things I hardly know where to start: even just having an automated way to track time off was a big bonus for us. We love the PTO calendars and the onboarding and offboarding tasks. The ATS was a huge improvement because it made it so much easier to keep track of interview processes with multiple people involved. And my account manager is always there to walk through new ideas with me and help me make the most of Collage.

Pros

Its ease of use, the customer support is amazing, always new updates making it better. Recruiting integration with indeed.com. Performance reviews. Integrates with GWL benefits and Wagepoint payroll.

Cons

Training module has potential to be a bit more comprehensive, would be nice to be able to design courses in the software. Time-off could use a bit more detail when it presents on the company Outlook calendar, would be nice to see the exact hours people are off during each particular day.

Collage has greatly reduced our HR costs. We are very happy to have switched over and look forward to growing together.

Pros

Collage is very straight forward and easy to navigate. The price is great compared to our former web-based software HR platform and the fact that it is Canadian is very helpful. The benefit administration has also proven to be very helpful. Online support always follows up, and I very much appreciate that.

Cons

I know Collage is still relatively new, but some of the feature requests that have been submitted still haven't come to fruition. For example, the inability to sort reports with the platform. I wish you could click on a report column heading and have it auto-sort (i.e. alpahbetically, numerically, etc). I also have requested the ability to create folders in each individuals "Documents" tab so we can organize documents accordingly.

Response from Collage

Hi there and thank you for your feedback! It's very meaningful to us to hear what is working well and where we can improve. As per your request, we have just launched the ability to create folders in your "Documents" tab. You can learn more in our help guide: http://support.collage.co/documents/document-folders

Please don't hesitate to contact your account manager if you have any questions. We look forward to growing together, too!

Pros

The only pro I can see with this company is that it's free, but you get what you pay for. It's not even worth free.

Cons

First and foremost, their staff are incredibly rude. They will stalk you after signing up, calling multiple locations for which they were not provided contact info, and disrupting our business with these harassing and spammy calls. We have to ask them multiple times to quit calling/messaging us, and they continued to do so endlessly.

The so-called HR 'features' they offer are so bare boned it's laughable. They are just here to stink you into a benefits plan, and I can't even imagine how poorly that would go based on the the staff member I dealt with. Avoid!

Response from Collage

Hi Kelly - We are sorry to hear that you didn’t enjoy your experience with Collage. Our intention is to help our customers find a solution when the sign up for the platform - not to bait and switch or mislead. We take this feedback very seriously and will take whatever measures possible to fix this issue.

Pros

It's easy to get up and running, very intuitive from both user and administrator perspective, and their customer support is outstanding.

Cons

When we first started using Collage there were a few minor annoyances, but their product development team is so responsive, most of these have all been resolved in the 9 months since we have been using it. The only thing left they need is Single Sign-On with Google.

Pros

The system is very intuitive and easy to operate. Both administrative staff and employees enjoy the simplicity of the platform.

Cons

I would like thought and design into the HR policy and procedure requirements that a company has. A documentation and review management policy app would really help manage an overwhelming process.

Benefits

  • The e-signature feature allows users to sign important documents, such as contracts and tax forms, without the need for paper copies. This also allows new candidates to sign employment documents remotely during onboarding.

  • Collage provides a library of best practice question templates to be used during one-on-one performance assessment meetings. Managers can also leave notes within the meeting record for internal use or to share with the employee for feedback.

  • Time off requests can be synced with the company's or personal calendars thanks to integrations with Google, Apple and Outlook calendars.

  • The HR reporting tool allows companies to generate custom reports to compare month on month new hires and terminations, and allows users to export time off requests to reconcile with payroll data.

  • The ATS allows hiring managers to see the number of applicants for a specific role and which of these have been screened, interviewed or hired. Hiring directors and team members can also share feedback on applicants within the platform using notes and ‘thumbs up’ or ‘thumbs down’ buttons.
