Easy to use and updates team on policies and procedures

4.0 9 months ago

Comments: Before an HRIS was implemented, most records were kept in printouts and physical copies rather than in a centralized location. Since ELMO has been introduced, it is simple to look up an employee's past and see how their performance has been handled.

Pros:

Superb Customer Service and Support Staff: Throughout both the pre- and post-implementation phases, I received assistance that was competent, fast, and effective. Simple Leave Request Form with Leave Balance View. And to conduct evaluations for supervisors to examine. The dashboard is also quite helpful for data retrieval.

Cons:

One email will be sent upon enrollment in a new course. As a gentle reminder, I prefer many reminders. The employee data part is not as aesthetically pleasing as the rest of the screen display.

ELMO - The 21st Century nightmare of HR

1.0 7 months ago

Comments: Hate is a strong word. Would prefer to use despise, which is frankly worse. Cannot believe that anyone would pay such a huge amount of funds towards such an underdeveloped project. I guess we got pulled in by the sales team that marketed with ' Yes we can ' to later find out that they could actually not, worse than that, that option never existed. Felt like a test dummy for Xero integration, with nobody really knowing how to fix the issue and is still unresolved 3 years later.

Pros:

Forms provide flexibility in development. Employee management of documentation is easy.

Cons:

Lost most of my hair setting it up, lost more trying to change how departments wanted it to run, and more when trying to sort out their software bugs for them. It is badly managed, badly put together hodgepodge of software that has no place in being part of the HR realm.

Alternatives Considered: Employment Hero

Reasons for Choosing ELMO Software: Ento was limited and had no capacity for what we needed after we hit 1-- employees. We still use this for rostering bur thats all.

Switched From: Ento

Reasons for Switching to ELMO Software: Among others, We were purchasing EH and then when I got back from a week away, we had purchased ELMO. Yay!

Very happy with the software and the service offered by ELMO

5.0 2 years ago

Pros:

The implementation was seamless and the staff at ELMO go over and above to ensure you get the most out of the system. We have gained the most benefits out of the Onboarding, Learning & Performance modules.

Cons:

Some limitations in the rostering software but ELMO are very proactive in continuously developing and improving the software

Alternatives Considered: Cognology and Employment Hero

Reasons for Choosing ELMO Software: ConnX was unable to support our growth as a business. Found the reporting in Sage to be limited and also wanted one fully integrated HR and Payroll system

Switched From: ProNavigator and ConnX

Reasons for Switching to ELMO Software: ELMO offered a complete solution and the pricing was very good for what was being offered.
