The Good

  • Core HR Features
  • Flat Pricing
  • White Label Options
  • 14-Day Free Trial

Core HR Features

EffortlessHR’s HR software solution provides the essential features every HR manager needs to effectively and efficiently accomplish their work. Its features include employee management, PTO tracking and leave management, online time clock, and document storage. EffortlessHR also offers add-on features which include a custom handbook builder, an applicant tracking system, and the ability to accept online job applications. 

Flat Pricing

Unlike most HR software, EffortlessHR offers flat pricing instead of charging per employee. Its pricing structure currently offers three levels based on the number of users and storage capacity. You can choose between monthly payments or a discounted annual rate depending on what works best for your business. 

14-Day Free Trial

EffortlessHR offers a free, 14-day trial of its HR software. This gives you the opportunity to see if the features and management system fulfills the needs of your business, HR department, and employees. 

White Label Options

EffortlessHR also offers co-branding and white label options for businesses looking to add an HR software solution to their existing services. Its website does not provide a lot of information on these options. We recommend you contact a company representative for more information.


The Bad

  • Doesn’t Include Payroll Software
  • No Mobile App

Doesn’t Include Payroll Software

Many HR software solutions include a payroll system as part of the software. EffortlessHR’s software does not include this feature. Instead, it exports your employees’ timesheet data to your chosen payroll service. Be sure to speak with a representative and/or test the exporting feature to ensure the payroll software you’re using is compatible with EffortlessHR’s system. 

No Mobile App

EffortlessHR does not have a mobile app. Your employees can use a mobile browser to access its employee portal via the website. However, many people find apps more convenient and easier to navigate than a mobile browser. 


The Bottom Line

EffortlessHR is an appealing HR software solution for small businesses. Its flat pricing options sets it apart from many of its competitors. Although it doesn’t include payroll software, it provides all the core features an HR manager needs to function efficiently. We encourage any interested HR professionals or business owners to take advantage of EffortlessHR’s free trial to see if it works for your business’s specific needs.
