Time to Raise a Toast: CakeHR features among the Top 10 HR Software Solutions

Introducing the latest GetRank Q2 2016 of ‘Category Leaders in HR Software’, who are offering best cloud based HR apps

World’s leading premium business app discovery platform, GetApp, released its quarterly ranking report for Q2, 2016 and CakeHR has every reason to rejoice.

Drumrolls Please! 🙂 We featured among the top 10 HR Software Solutions, securing a credible 6th spot on the list, thanks to our loyal and happy customers!

The ranking report showcases the top 25 Human Resources (HR) apps based in the cloud, where each of the featured app is scored using five factors, worth 20 points each, for a total possible score out of 100.

CakeHR stands above the average with a score of 54, surpassing the industry bigwigs like ADP and Oracle, which in itself is a huge achievement.

Top Human Resources (HR) Software 2016 | GetApp
This ranking is for business owners and decision makers looking for a first glance at the leading cloud-based Human Resources (HR) software in the industry.

The data serves as a point of reference highlighting the key factors that small and mid-sized businesses should look at when first analyzing a piece of software.

GetApp is a part of the prestigious Gartner group, and employs rigorous and non-biased methodology to arrive at the scores.

The five factors used for computing the ranks include:

  • Reviews: Calculates user preferences – number of ratings and quality of reviews benchmarked against other apps in the industry
  • Integrations: Compatibility with other processes and apps listed on GetApp
  • Mobile: Takes into account Mobile App Availability on Google Play and Apple App Store as well as the app ratings by users
  • Media: Market Presence in terms of twitter followers and Facebook fans
  • Security: Data gathered from a self-assessment survey on Cloud Security Alliance and security certifications is converted to relevant scores. In case of tie, “Security Score” acts as a tie breaker as it has the highest weightage among all factors

What makes the GetRank results trustworthy is the fact that each score is completely independent of commercial interests and existing relationships that GetApp may have with app vendors.

What you see is what you get, and that is – “A true reflective and comparative picture of leading apps”.
