Choosing the right HR software for your small business

As a small business owner or office manager you’ve got 101 things to do and not enough hours in the day. Here at citrusHR we understand what it’s like; we’ve been there! 

In fact, our software was built specifically to tackle the distracting HR headaches that citrusHR’s founders repeatedly came up against when running their own small businesses. It became clear that small businesses would have a much greater chance of success if the important but mundane day to day HR admin every company has to carry out could be made quicker and easier.

Small business HR software commonly helps you to manage the following core tasks:

  • Managing holiday and leave requests
  • Storing and updating employee data securely
  • Storing employment documents (contracts and policies) and making them accessible to staff

However, modern online systems like citrusHR can also help you to save time and become more resilient as a company with lots of other great features, such as:

  • Expenses: Log and submit expenses for approval, then sync approved claims with accounting software like Xero
  • Performance management: Schedule and manage reviews with individual staff quickly and easily, with customisable forms for staff and managers
  • Reporting: Access company-wide reports on sickness, lateness, expenses and much, much more
  • HR Notifications: Avoid costly compliance mistakes by receiving smart alerts when employment documents (such as Proof of Right to Work) are due to expire, or Health and Safety checks are overdue

Cost-effective HR software

Not only did we decide to focus on the features we think are most important to small businesses like yours, we also made sure our pricing model works hard to meet the needs of your business too.

Running a small business is exciting and exhilarating, but it’s also frustrating and unpredictable. It’s often hard enough to see around the next corner, let alone years into the future. That’s why we believe long-term contracts don’t work for you, they only work for whoever is locking you into them. Our subscription runs month to month and you can cancel anytime. How’s that for flexibility?

Try it now with our no-commitment free trial

We don’t believe in charging people to find out whether our HR software is right for them. That’s why we offer a two-week free trial, then if you decide you want to subscribe, you just enter your payment details and you’re away. We’ll support you through every step of the process, but we won’t charge you anything extra. 

So, how much does it cost? Just £2 per employee per month (plus VAT, £20 minimum). Your monthly fee goes up and down each month in line with the number of employees you have on our HR system, so citrusHR grows with your business.
