Access PeopleHR

Straight-forward cloud-based HR software for SMBs.

About Access PeopleHR

Small and medium businesses need to do all the same HR tasks that large-scale enterprise businesses do – but without the large HR team to do it.

Access People HR exists to solve this problem.

Time and time again, we are contacted by business owners, operations leaders, and finance managers who are spending time (and money) managing holiday requests, scheduling interviews, and preparing monthly reports on their key HR metrics. And it’s just not what they went into business to do.

Our team of experts get a buzz out of helping people like you automate your manual HR tasks, giving you back the time to do whatever it is you love, whilst giving your employees the great experience that they expect.

So, whether you’re a small 10-person business with no HR department or a growing business looking to implement a market-leading HRIS, we’re here for you.

Let’s delve a bit deeper into our specific modules and features.

*Features*

The employee records feature allows companies to store and manage employee information in one centralised location. This includes personal information, employment history, and other relevant data.

Our performance management feature helps you track employee performance over time and provides tools for creating performance reviews, setting goals and tracking progress.

We also have a recruitment feature which allows you to manage the entire hiring process, from posting job listings to tracking applications, and scheduling interviews.

Time tracking and absence management is also a feature available to users. Time tracking software offers a flexible way to record timesheets and track attendance, allowing you to manage employees’ time in a way that works best for you. And absence management software gives users a holistic understanding of employee absence.

Workflow management software (Ripple®) is also available for customers on our ‘Elite’ package. This feature allows users to build personalised workflows that encourage collaboration, save time and automate once difficult tasks for smoother work processes.

We also offer a multitude of payroll services, from payroll software to a payroll outsourcing bureau, giving customers a simple and reliable way to ensure their staff get paid correctly. In 2022, we acquired Paycircle - a cloud-based, collaborative payroll platform for modern payroll bureaus – giving more depth and flexibility to our payroll offering.

*Pricing*

Access PeopleHR provides a flexible, and affordable, three-tier pricing structure. Our basic package starts at just £5 per employee, per month, and £9 for our most advanced solution.

*Focus on what’s important*

If you’re a small to medium-sized business looking to improve your HR efficiency and scalability, Access PeopleHR is for you. With us in your corner, you can focus on growing your business, safe in the knowledge that your HR needs are being taken care of by a reliable and effective system.

Access People HR is part of The Access Group family, and together we are supporting the world of HR. From supplying HRIS’ for all sized businesses, providing learning content, payroll systems, and much more. This means that as you grow, we’re able to grow with you – supporting you every step of your journey.

Excellent customer service and a great system

Thanks again for all your help and support! We cant wait to fully start making the most of the system!

Pros

The customer service is outstanding. We are a small company so implementing a system like this is a big deal for us- we were looking at simplifying operations as we currently use different systems for holiday booking, employee praise and expenses. I therefore had hundreds of questions to ensure that we were making the right decisions. The chat feature is extremely useful as you get a quick response to questions and do not have to leave the system to ask. Special thanks to customer service agent who has been very helpful even when I have been asking multiple questions on a daily basis!

The system is easy to use and has lots of great features which are really good value for money. I have looked at many other systems and this one definitely came out top for value for money, features and customer support.

Cons

Some of the settings are complicated to find and change- would be better if they were all in a centralized location- however once all set up this is a minor inconvenience.

The pulse surveys are a great addition- however it would be good if you could access this from the desktop site and also could have the option of making these anonymous.

The expenses section- we use Expensify currently- would be useful if you could scan receipts for information so the form auto fills as this is how it worked in Expensify but just a minor con.

Finally, we allow our employees to Swap their normal working days- would be good if there was a specific capability for this rather than adding as an event as this allows you to swap out and not guarantee that the employee has swapped out also.

Pros

PeopleHR offers so many more features than most comparable software. I've been really impressed by the applicant tracking system, we've made many new hires through it and it has saved us a lot of money.

Everything is in one place and it's user-friendly.

Cons

There are a couple of bits that need refining, e.g. you can award someone half a day of TOIL but they can't enter it into the system on the same day as half a day of holiday.

The performance management is good but it would be better if it were a little more customisable in format, Managers are required to enter something in every box in order to close the review, which can be a menial task if they have no comment on that particular question.

Alternatives Considered

Breezy, IRIS HR Professional and BambooHR

Reasons for Choosing Access PeopleHR

Staff Squared cost about the same but had much fewer features. I think the performance management and ATS in PeopleHR were our main reason for switching.

Reasons for Switching to Access PeopleHR

Price point was more reasonable for the features and as we are a small business we couldn't afford a huge amount on HR software.

Awful and unprofessional. The sales team very nice but as soon as we signed the contract and paid, we were asked to pay 20K more which we obviously refused, even that they confirmed before signing that there would be no further payments. No one has reached out to us, we have been chasing for over a month now to start with the implementation and no one is getting back to us. Stay away from it and listen to the reviews. We are currently seeking legal advice on this as it is appalling.

Pros

The software has a lot of capabilities and comes across as an amazing solution

Cons

I have not been able to use it yet as they have not kicked off the project

Reasons for Choosing Access PeopleHR

The system was not fit for the nature of the business and is unable to cope with casual workforce needs. Very basic, recommend for companies with monday to friday kind of jobs but not for anything more complex.

IRIS Cascade

Reasons for Switching to Access PeopleHR

The product comes across as very modern and a overall solution to our needs, even that it was significantly more expensive, the payroll and timesheets part was very thorough for a business with lots of casual workers.

Think you can tell I really love People HR, it makes my job as a HR Consultant so much easier having everything in one place.
I particularly like the queries facility, and probably use it everyday for something.
Also if I have a question I usually try the 'get help' tab but if I struggle the help desk guys are great too.

Pros

People HR is a very intuitive piece of software, its just so easy to operate.
We've watched it grow as our business needs change, not only can you use it for basic tasks like monitoring holidays and absence.
It is possible to run the full employee life cycle of an employee from recruitment via the ATS tab to monitoring the employee's progress via the progress tab.
We've recently used the facility to upload payslips to our system which will be a huge saving in stamps and stuffing envelopes!

Cons

Sometimes the queries facility baffles me, there are so many options, not really a con just a comment.
