Factorial

HR software for small & medium companies

4.2/5 (5 reviews)

Factorial Overview

Factorial is a powerful software for small and medium-sized companies aimed to simplify the most tedious human resources tasks like payrolls or vacations. We've managed to mix the personal, hands-on treatment of a labor consultant with the secure and fast-paced technology of a startup to bring businesses a powerful service like no other.

Factorial HR

Simplify the management of absences, holidays, and sick leaves within the company, enabling users to accept or reject employee time off requests, update the company’s calendar in real time, and much more. Managers can set up the holidays of their region, manage sick leaves and upload documentation, and receive notifications on any other requests or absences.

Factorial Payroll

Factorial Payroll can automate your company's payroll process, taxes, Social Security and much more. Everything is stored in their online profile. Don't worry, our database will synchronize and apply the necessary conditions before creating the contract for every employee automatically. On top of that, any change or action on the employee status will be notified to the public entities instantly and it will also generate all the documents needed to declare taxes.

Factorial Documents Manager

Factorial Document Manager securely stores all important documentation in the cloud, allowing users to attach documents that correspond to a specific employee, such as contracts, identity documents, payslips, sick leave documents, and more. Companies can also create an organizational chart using the chart generator for an updated look of the company.

All employee information in one place and digitized: wages, contracts, holidays, contact information... etc.
Factorial team helped me a lot during the beginning in order to have everything updated.
Both managers and employees perceived its benefits very quickly and it was very easy to change the way we managed HR stuff.

Pros

It helps me to ease communication.
Everything I need related to HR in one place, easy for both employees and management in order to centralize HR information for both sides.

Cons

My labor advisor must be confortable with the software so that the whole flow makes sense, and sometimes is not that simple for him.

Pros

I like how "easy to use"is the system, very clear and covers all the functionalities that we need for a HR system. Also we valuate a lot the team abscenses calendar.

Cons

The benefits side is a bit unclear, sometimes we have problems to contract health insurance.

Pros

It's free so that's good. You can do holiday mgmt, benefits and upload docs in one place, that separates them from other free tools

Cons

Very limited, as the reporting is very limited as well as the features. Can't do much once your company starts scaling.

This software is easy to get started and is great for getting teams organized.

Pros

This software is great for getting HR setup and organized. It is easy to use and covers all of the basics and then some.

Cons

The one thing I would have liked is a page for Notes or personal remarks. Also a portion for performance reviews and/or appraisals.

It's a free software so I guess it does just enough for companies that can't afford a more robust solution. That said, I don't think there's anything better for free.

Pros

Being able to easily upload pay stubs, work and birthday anniversary notifications on the feed. Ability to set up different time-off types.

Cons

- impossible to integrate with other apps.
- reports are very very limited, which makes the process of salary reviews or any other kind of review very difficult and impractical.
- impossible to pull historical reports
- impossible to customise reports
- managers can't easily see their direct reports unless you set up teams
- the process of terminating an employee and "re-hiring" them in the future is clunky (tenure adds up and vacation time accrues)
