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.

    Utilizamos FactorialHR sobretodo para el control de vacaciones, fichajes y firma de documentación con empleados y estamos en estudio para la implementación de gastos que ofrece para liberar el único proceso interno que nos queda en papel.

    Pros

    La herramienta es muy fácil de utilizar. No se requieren grandes conocimientos de IT para desplegarla y, sobre todo, a nivel de usuario es muy intuitiva por lo que cualquiera puede utilizarla.
    Su constante evolución y mejoras que van incorporando, ayuda bastante en la gestión del día día. Independientemente del plan que se tenga, escuchan las necesidades de sus clientes para mejorar e implementar nuevas funcionalidades.

    Cons

    El sistema de fichaje aun le falta alguna mejora, como notificaciones tanto por correo como por app en inicio de jornada laboral en un rango horario y notificación en la final de horario.
    El los útlimos meses hemos detectado varias caídas, si que es cierto que no es una app core de negocio pero sí que los usuarios se molestan de vez en cuando.
    La gestión de incidencias es un poco caótico puesto que a veces recibo primero la respuesta del técnico y horas más tarde un correo de apertura del caso con lo que presta a confusión ya veces no sabes si has abierto el ticket hasta que te responden. Eso sí, son muy rápidos en dar respuesta por lo que realmente es más una apunte que una queja.

    En general estamos muy contentos y sobre todo porque la empresa responde a las peticiones muy rapido.

    Pros

    El software esta desarrollado en España, entonces toma mucho en cuenta el contexto local. El equipo de atencion de cliente esta en contacto continuo con nosotros buscando mejoras y sugerencias.

    Cons

    Como se va desarrollando todo el rato, a veces los menus a nivel admin son un poco complejas y no muy logicas.

    Es más fácil gestionar la información (saber quién está fuera, tener acceso a las nóminas).

    Pros

    La centralización de la información, la gestión de las vacaciones.
    Es bastante intuitivo para los usuarios (como admin alguna vez he tenido problemas).

    Cons

    Al final el software es el canal de comunicación, por lo que los procesos siguen teniendo los mismos timinigs que si trabajásemos con una gestoría.
    Por otro lado, normalmente tengo que revisar tanto los contratos como las nóminas, ya que ha habido errores varias veces.

    Viewing team vacation days and who is in/out of the office as a peer is easy, but protects peoples' privacy as well.

    Pros

    Decent UI for end users; plenty of customization available for leave reasons, alternate configurations, etc.

    Cons

    A little tedious to use re interface for submitting PTO when it is not just a straight shot, but is instead in half days, etc. A visual calendar editor with half day indicators would be easier, rather than selecting date after date day by day.

    From an administrative side, there is a significant amount of initial configuration needed when starting with the software, and with each time that you add an employee, however, this is similar in almost all competitive softwares.

    Alternatives Considered

    Payfit

    Reasons for Switching to Factorial

    The alternative (payfit) is frankly terrible UI and has no team calendar function. Approvals process to line managers are significantly better in Factorial as well.
