Factorial

About Factorial

Factorial is a powerful software for small and medium-sized companies aimed to simplify the most tedious human resources tasks like payrolls or vacations. We've managed to mix the personal, hands-on treatment of a labor consultant with the secure and fast-paced technology of a startup to bring businesses a powerful service like no other.

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.

    Every part of the process has been great: The onboarding, support and the constant available videos, articles and content really prove that Factorial are the best in the sector!

    Pros

    What I like most about Factorial is obviously how user friendly it is for our employees, our team managers and ourselves as administrators. This is not only useful for organising fair time off for holidays but it also allows team members to check in on who and when fellow colleagues are here - therefore helping them plan projects etc. The social side: making visible different events on the dashboard such as team outings, birthdays, events etc..

    Cons

    How we currently are using Factorial, all the features are apt for us.

    Terrible customer service

    Reviewed on 4/04/2022

    Pros

    A lot of features and options for HR management.

    Cons

    Factorial has a lot of features and options, however it is very hard to use and implement. The customer service is one of the worst I have ever encountered: they simply do not reply to anything. It was very hard to schedule a meeting with their sales team in order to get a proposal to start working with them. That was almost 3 months ago and I still did not receive the proposal.
    Also, they have good features, but it is hard to implement and start working, and since customer service is so bad, I'm not even sure how we'd set them up.

    It's a free software so I guess it does just enough for companies that can't afford a more robust solution. That said, I don't think there's anything better for free.

    Pros

    Being able to easily upload pay stubs, work and birthday anniversary notifications on the feed. Ability to set up different time-off types.

    Cons

    - impossible to integrate with other apps.
    - reports are very very limited, which makes the process of salary reviews or any other kind of review very difficult and impractical.
    - impossible to pull historical reports
    - impossible to customise reports
    - managers can't easily see their direct reports unless you set up teams
    - the process of terminating an employee and "re-hiring" them in the future is clunky (tenure adds up and vacation time accrues)

    GREAT!

    You need to improve customer services / services desk sometime tickets get loss.

    Pros

    the UX/ UI, how easy is to start with setting and documents to be uploaded.

    Cons

    When a release is done, we experience several bugs and then we need to figure our what happens.
    Time tracking, we can't add different work schedules, besides 40-20 hours, e.g. we don't have m-t full day and Friday half day.
    Signature process som time is quite complicated,

    I know all this things are a work in progress, and so far I really like / love your solution!

    I'm super satisfied, Factorial cover everything we need for our HR processes and we can save a lot of time by not doing manual tasks.

    Pros

    All in one HR software, covering everything we need to manage our HR process. Easy time clock and time tracking, PTO, evaluation performance, documents, and digital signature.

    Cons

    It's easy to use and intuitive. Had to contact support to integrate with other APIs, but they were really helpful.
