"Great HR platform for growing businesses"

Comments: We found BreatheHR when we were about 20 staff and it's been a godsend, it meant we could move on from holiday spreadsheets and it made us so much more organised with personnel files but those were only the basic things we were trying to 'fix', in reality lots of other benefits came with it - our team love the 'kudos' feature which mean they can say thanks / well done to each other, and we use it to help communicate business critical documents to all staff - our team have take much more responsibility for their own information and now they can access things like remaining holiday days whenever they want.

Pros: There are lots but in general this has given us a professionalism in our HR administration that we simply didn't have before at a cost that's a real no brainer.

Cons: Can't think of any, but if anything you do only get out of it what you put in so if you don't engage your staff in it and use the various features then it won't be so useful.

"Lets your department managers BREATHE"

Comments: Overall very positive and has greatly improved efficiencies within our organisation.

Pros: Each employee has their own area, holiday / work related documents / review requests all held in one place. Our department managers are spending under 10 minutes a day on managing holiday / sickness. Not to mention the ability to attach company documents (all with read receipts)

Cons: Live chat assistance is permanently in the corner - unable to change this setting.

"Great so far!"

Comments: Really easy to use - great platform! Would recommend for a smaller scale business and scale up within breathe as your business scales.

Pros: Easy to view profiles, manage time off, leave, training & performance etc.

Cons: Doesn't have all the features we're looking for at the moment so we do have to integrate with another

"Functional HR System"

Comments: It is a good basic tool for Employee records, but getting data back out can be cumbersome

Pros: It is relatively simple to navigate the system and complete tasks quickly using the it's basic interface

Cons: It needs updating. There is no drag and drop functionality, integration with Office 365 or CRM and data cannot be exported en masses.

"Simple, efficient, cost saving and value for money"

Comments: ramsac have been using BreatheHR to manage our HR needs for our 50+ team, for the best part of two years now. I have found nothing on the market that compares in terms of functionality and price. Providing our team with a self service HR dashboard has helped us to stand out as a modern employer, whilst at the same time driving increased efficiency and ensuring a more up to date, tighter controlled HR database. We use it to manage staff details, payroll info, holidays and leave, 121s and performance meetings, expenses and more.
I particularly like the efficient way of ensuring staff have read and accepted company wide documents, as well as the easy way in which we can administer leave requests and expense claims - perfect for our very mobile work force.
It's also enabled us to make job offers and HR documentation entirely paper free - and having no paper based HR records whatsoever is really useful when managers are working away from the HQ.
Support is friendly and efficient and the cost is very attractive. I can't say enough positive things about breathehr!

Pros: Drives efficiency
Low monthly fee
Simple to use -for hr users and employees
Cloud based - no set up costs or hardware needs
Mobile
Allows for better control of documents, records and leave/expense requests

Cons: It is what it is, you can't tailor massively, but then you're comparing a product that costs £50 a month, with a bespoke database that costs £20k+ - I think the functionality is more than adequate for the vast majority of SMEs.
