Although we are only a small company, we were trying to manually record our employees' holiday and sick leave as well as days in lieu, but found that we were losing track of vital information. CakeHR lets us keep all this information in an organised way, and lets our employees also keep track of their accrued allowances, as well as requesting leave in a more formal and organised manner.

Pros

I really liked the choice of price points, depending on the needs of your business. The user interface is also intuitive, and the calendar integrates well with Outlook.

Cons

The trial version didn't have New Zealand public holidays automatically included, so I had to add these manually.

Reasons for Switching to Sage HR

Bamboo's functionality is great, but was much more than we needed, and was significantly more expensive.

Response from HR Bakery

Dear Nicole,

I'm so glad to hear that you are enjoying your experience with CakeHR!
There are a lot of features we keep updating on a weekly basis and, probably thanks to you, now we have possibility to import also public holidays of New Zealand.
So now, for certain, you can refer us to your New Zealand friends and colleagues, we are all set :)

With thanks,
Viktorija

Responsive to concerns, no reliability issues

Pros

Our team uses it to manage our paid time off and remote working policies. It's super simple and easy to use and very cost effective.

Cons

The way it is set up is probably designed for larger teams and takes a bit of effort in order to see everyone's calender as opposed to only the individuals on your 'team'

Response from HR Bakery

Dear Matt,

Thank you very much for your feedback! We suggest using also our CakeHR app, that will help you to manage time-off policies much easier and it's more convenient when you are on the go :)

With thanks,

Our employee profiles, data, financials and even documented reports are now easily accessible and easy to manage.

Pros

All our HR functionalities can be managed in not just a chronological manner but time-saving cost effective manner. It has minimized many tasks for us.

Cons

It is not easy to integrate with the system we have always used here at our company but we are considering switching fully to SAGE HR.

Pros

We started using this when it was cakeHR, and it was great and pretty well supported. Cost effective, pretty solid features for a small team.

Cons

After sage bought it, prices went up and support vanished. Tried cancelling for months, never received confirmation. The only place a Sage human would respond is on Twitter.
