Finding an HRIS to fulfill their needs

Cyber-Duck was looking for an HRIS to replace the platform that they had used previously. The company had a list of requirements, including onboarding and offboarding workflows, performance management, goal setting and tracking, scheduling and reporting vacation and sick days. Cyber-Duck set out to review several platforms to see which measured up. 

“I love that bob has the capabilities to do so many different things in one platform. You also have the bonus of added integrations with external platforms such as Slack and ATS. There are fun parts for staff too, such as kudos, which gives it that fun twist that people enjoy.”
Danny BluestoneFounder and CEOCyber-Duck

Cyber-Duck chose bob for its ease of use and wide range of capabilities

As an innovative tech company, Cyber-Duck was impressed by bob’s modern look and feel and intuitive UX. With bob, all of Cyber-Duck’s HR functions are centralized on one platform.

They were also attracted to bob’s seamless integrations with the many tech tools they use daily, such as Slack, their internal communication tool, and the Teamtailor ATS platform. These integrations enable the Cyber-Duck team to use bob within their flow of work.

Cyber-Duck had been searching for a user-friendly time tracking system, and they found it in bob’s Time Off capability, where they can easily track employees’ vacation and sick days, wherever they are working. The onboarding and offboarding workflows and goal-setting capability are also favorites of the company and particularly helpful while their employees work remotely. 

Building culture at Cyber-Duck 

Cyber-Duck sought an HRIS that would be engaging, promote collaboration, and help build and maintain a strong company culture—no easy feat when working with remote teams.
