The Good

  • Clear Pricing
  • Expert Advice
  • Easy Integrations

Clear Pricing

Many HR software companies won’t tell you how much their service costs on their website. BerniePortal provides most of its basic services at a $15 per month base charge, with an additional $5 per user per month. However, it appears that you will be charged this price for each separate feature of their service you use. For a small company that just needs help from a few services, like time and attendance tracking or compliance, this could be a great option.

Expert Advice

When you sign up for BerniePortal, you work through a broker. This broker can help you through your HR software questions. In addition to connecting you with this outside help, BerniePortal also offers short training videos about every aspect of its software. BerniePortal customer service is also available by phone and online.

Easy Integrations

If BerniePortal doesn’t offer an aspect of HR software that your business needs, it is set up for easy integrations from other providers, especially payroll providers.


The Bad

  • Must Work Through a Broker
  • Limited Features

Must Work Through a Broker

BerniePortal has a broker network of about 200 health insurance brokers nationwide. However, for a nationwide network that means there might not even be a broker in your state or close to your business. If this is this case, you might not get much face-to-face assistance. Though it's not clear on BerniePortal’s website, working through an insurance broker might carry additional fees.

Limited Features

As it is a simple software, BerniePortal has very limited features. BerniePortal itself offers these features:

  • Applicant tracking — helps you keep track of the resumes and information about applicants during the hiring process. This type of software falls under the category of “talent management”
  • Onboarding — helps you get new employees started with your business
  • Online benefits helps you track, manage, and measure your employees’ benefits from an easy online portal
  • PTO tracking — helps you track and manage your employees’ paid time off
  • Time and attendance allows your employees to clock in and out and helps you adjust timesheets and track their time at work
  • Compliance — helps your company as a whole and your employees stay up to date and compliant with things like mandatory notices or anti-discrimination communication
  • Performance Management — helps you communicate with and give feedback to your employees
  • 1094-C and 1095-C reporting — helps you increase your compliance and save time with taxes
  • COBRA Administration — helps you stay compliant with COBRA when an employee is terminated

If your business needs any other features, you’ll have to use another HR technology. For example, BerniePortal doesn’t offer payroll, a core HR need that’s commonly offered from other software vendors.


The Bottom Line

BerniePortal is best for small businesses with basic HR needs. If you’re a larger business, this probably isn’t the HR solution for you.

BerniePortal's all-in-one, cloud-based HR software gives employers and HR admins one simple, streamlined place to manage the full life-cycle of their employees. From applicant tracking and hiring to onboarding, benefits, payroll, PTO, performance management, time and attendance, and more, BerniePortal can save time, reduce paperwork, and help you manage HR.
