About Access PeopleHR

Access PeopleHR is a comprehensive human resources (HR) software designed to meet the needs of small to medium-sized businesses. The platform offers a range of features that help companies manage their HR needs more efficiently. It offers a way to manage employee records, performance management and recruitment. It also offers self-service portals for employees to access their personal information and request time off. Access PeopleHR was designed with small and medium-sized businesses in mind and offers a user-friendly interface that is easy to navigate. This means that you can tailor the platform to your specific needs and preferences. The employee records feature allows you to store and manage employee information in one centralised location. This includes personal information, employment history, and other relevant data. The performance management feature helps you to track employee performance over time and provides tools for creating performance reviews, setting goals and tracking progress. The recruitment feature allows you to manage the entire hiring process, from posting job listings to tracking applications, and scheduling interviews. Access PeopleHR's self-service portals for employees is a feature that empowers your employees to take responsibility for their own time off and schedule and reduces the administrative load on your HR department. This can be accessed by a powerful mobile app. We also offer flexible payroll services – from software to a payroll bureau – allowing users to outsource all (or some) of their payroll responsibilities. Our recent acquisition of Paycircle - a cloud-based, collaborative payroll platform for modern payroll bureaus – provides even more depth to our already comprehensive payroll offering. 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. Prices start at £5 per user, per month.

PeopleHR Review

The real strength of people is its people! It's refreshing to find a company that walks its talk on culture and employee brand. They are all extremely helpful, knowledgeable and VERY long suffering and patient with non-technical customers! From the sales team to the help desk team - I cannot praise them high enough.

Pros

The features are very good - wide range and very good value for money

Cons

Very little really . The only criticism is that some of the administrative features are accessed direct from employee records instead of in background settings like you would expect. An example of this is adding a new document - you have to open an employee record, and go to the add documents - and you are then given an option to create a new template. This is not very intuitive. There is an excellent logbooks facility in which you can create custom logbooks for every conceivable record you might want - this also was accessed from an employees record but they have just moved this to its own section in admin settings. They need to do the same for the other areas as well.

Great implementation process

We have only just commenced using the software, so this review is purely related to the implementation team. The process has been very smooth throughout. [sensitive content hidden] was always on hand to answer any questions before we made the purchase and [sensitive content hidden] provided help and support during the implementation period. Both were friendly, easy to contact and quick to respond to all queries which made the process quick and easy. [sensitive content hidden] , who conducted our training, was very knowledgeable about the system. Thanks team!

Pros

The software seems to cover everything we need it to administrate our HR needs. It is intuitive to use and the help videos and articles provide further detail when needed.

Cons

Currently the software seems to do most things that we need. We were not able to use the LOS leave accrual rules as there wasn't the option to award our staff with an extra day on their service anniversary.

Employment Hero and Breathe

Reasons for Switching to Access PeopleHR

Employment hero looked great but data was not hosted in the UK which was too high risk for us. Breathe didn't have as many features as PeopleHR.

Response from The Access Group

Good morning - Thanks for taking the time to share your feedback. We really appreciate it. Thanks again, The Access Group

Shocking privacy risks

Pros

Easy to use, easy to set up. Fine for a company which wants unbridled access for all staff, but serious concerns around internal company privacy and security with some of the new features. Good for small, single office companies where everything is open.

Cons

The product was looking good and then they released an app which allows the entire company to join a group chat. As a company with very careful data handling controls and locked down teams we were absolutely shocked they would roll this out. This means self service has to be disabled and renders the product almost useless. Very unsettling that a company would just role these features out without thinking through the consequences.

With the planner individuals can see their managers planner and all their team mates - which may be great for a small office but a bit of a privacy breach for many people and companies. Very surprised we can't turn off planner access for their team / department colleagues.

Customer service is generally intercom, intercom chat bot and links to articles so a bit hit and miss.

Response from The Access Group

Thanks for reviewing People HR.

We appreciate your wish to disable chat in certain scenarios, but we have decided against developing this option.

This is partly influenced by our research around engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic. But fundamentally, we believe communication is key in most organisations, and we don't want to put barriers in the way of that. Instead of building limitations, we encourage sensible use for work-related purposes.

We're proud of the security our chat offers: TLS1.2+ to encrypt the messages in transit, and AES256 to encrypt the messages at rest. Our chat also helps users to guarantee they are messaging colleagues, instead of untrusted recipients. The functionality is GDPR compliant, and if you have any concerns then our Data Protection Officer will be happy to discuss them.

I have a call with your colleague tomorrow, and hope to discuss this matter further during that conversation. I hope this helps.

Kind regards

Easy to use HR software

Overall really happy with this software - it makes managing the team smooth and straightforward.

Pros

The interface is simple to use from a management perspective, as well as for individuals to request annual leave. I am not sure how we managed our HR / leave process before this software.

Cons

Some of the menus can be a bit tricky to locate what you are looking for initially.

Implementing PeopleHR for acquired business

Great to have everything in one place, we were using several systems previously.

Pros

Easy and intuitive to use. Required little training for staff on the basic functions.

Cons

The link sent to users expires after a certain time. So once everyone had been uploaded, by the time we had told everyone about it the link had expired. Secondly, it is time consuming having to re-enter everyone's email address in order to re-sent them the link and because of the first point, had to be done for every employee. I assumed there would have been a "bulk" send option but there was not.

Response from The Access Group

Good morning - Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. We really appreciate it, and we'll be sure to pass on your kind comments to the team. Thanks again, The Access Group
