Q1 2016 Ranking of the Best Human Resources Software Applications

Updating its rankings for the new year, business apps marketplace GetApp has released its Q1 2016 ranking of the top 25 cloud-based HR solutions.

Updating its rankings for the new year, business apps marketplace GetApp has released its Q1 2016 ranking of the top 25 cloud-based HR solutions. BambooHR remained on top for the second quarter in a row, while Zoho People and FinancialForceHCM took home second and third place, respectively.

The ranking is based on five data points that include user reviews, integrations, mobile app availability, social media presence, and security. GetRank is aimed at business owners that are looking to make a first assessment of leading HR apps for their small or medium business. With each data point scored out of 20, the maximum possible score an app can receive is 100.

BambooHR took a strong lead with a total score of 72, achieving a perfect 20 for reviews. The high score for media went to 7th place Oracle for it’s Taleo Business Edition (TBE) software, while 12th place FairSail HRMS had the highest security score. The leader for mobile apps was ADP Total Source, which came in 16th overall but scored a perfect 20 for its crowd-pleasing iOS and Android apps. FinancialForceHCM tied with BambooHR with a score of 20 for app integrations, which is a key consideration for HR software buyers.

“Integrations are an especially important component of HR solutions. You want a system that integrates with other applications seamlessly to eliminate the duplicate work that comes along with having to input data twice. For example, having an HR solution that can integrate with a scheduling and payroll software is invaluable for a business­ owner looking to reduce time and cut costs,” says Christophe Primault, CEO at GetApp.

User reviews are scored based on the number of reviews and their related rating on GetApp, while mobile app scores are similar, pulling data from Google Play and the Apple App store based on app availability and user ratings. Integrations scores come from the number of software integrations listed on GetApp, while media presence is based on the number of Twitter followers and Facebook fans that a vendor has, in relation to other vendors in the category. Security scores are based on a vendor-completed survey modelled on the Cloud Security Alliance’s Self-Assessment Form.
