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.

    Easy Staff Managment Through Factorial

    As of now, the Factorial Application is running smoothly and meeting all desired expectations in my business unit. Staff is much pleased with the software as they no longer need to visit my office to submit their leave forms physically as the application enables them to request these through the system. Likewise, never missed my tasks and not had any arguments with my subordinates with regard to their day-offs. All the above achievements emerged thanks to Factorial Software. You will never regret owning this software because this will help to save your human assets in the company.

    Pros

    One of the best aspects of the Factorial app is its handy Dashboard. This provides a great helicopter view to senior staff with regard to identifying many activities such as upcoming events, pending tasks, upcoming holidays, and community posts. The Dashboard is in blocked shape with enlarged text, which helps users to quickly capture the eyes of the user without missing any activity! Furthermore, the users can easily install many user-friendly applications that integrate with Factorial through a few clicks. Some of the great features you can enjoy using these apps are Goals, reviews, surveys, training and etc. Another superb plus point is users can integrate the mailboxes, including outlook. If somebody thinks this is an exaggeration; I must tell you that you should try their free version before purchasing this! You will surely be mesmerized by your output!

    Cons

    So far, I did not experience any issues, since I have been using limited features yet but there are many other areas to capitalize on. There are abundant capabilities this App has but I am yet to experience any misbehaves of this app. In a nutshell, there are literally zero issues for me as of now!

    Qualitative use of factorial

    Pros

    - It's really great place to engage with all employee plus to manage their track records & attendance. We can easily apply for leave application without writing big emails.

    - you can manage payroll & holiday calendar + really useful place for survey

    Cons

    User-friendly HR software

    Reviewed on 06/05/2022

    Pros

    I like Factorial as it's a very simple and intuitive software. From the employee perspective, I think it's pretty valuable because all the documents are arranged in an orderly manner, and it's possible to upload files both from laptop and mobile devices. The dashboard gathers all the relevant information in one place so it's super easy to stay up to date with the events of the company.

    Cons

    I haven't tried yet the integration with LinkedIn because Factorial is currently working to release an update, and I am really curious to examine this aspect (as a marketing executive, it's important to me that I can link the two platforms in order to enhance employee engagement)

    We use to make the payrolls with a company and for me this process was terrible, was that time of the month when i really not wanted to be on. Now all this process is really easy and the communication with payroll staff is vry clear and fluid so any doubt it´s solved at the moment.

    Pros

    What we like the most was how easy is understand the platform and used. There´s no one who can not be able to find what they need or registered in the platform.
    How easily is complete the payroll process and how attent are the payroll staff.
    That i can use the platform for more than just one use, as example: payroll, recruitment, as documentary, to share documents with the employees, etc...

    Cons

    What i like least is that in the lead product that i think is the payroll i mis some usabilities as do changes directly in the payroll when are ready, like last minute changes that make the process return to scratch. Will be more easy if i can do it online.
    I really miss create differents document folders. I think that right now you have it but it´s a differente package.

    for me it is a great HR Platform, because you can manage everything in one tool! even if you are from the HR Department, or an user (employee) that self manage their neccesities.

    Pros

    it's easy to use. to ask for a free day it's quick, because your manager receive an alert to be approved or denied, you can control the schedules of all the employees, vacations, the exact hours an employee has worked. Also, all the information of all the employees in one hand.

    Cons

    I think it is necessary to find another way to control attendance, either by synchronizing with a work tool to avoid forgetting to record worker attendance. In my case, I had to set a daily alarm to remember to fill it.
