Our customers say it best

In my day-to-day role I’m very busy, so I always want someone to get back to me quickly. Out of the three companies I approached, SafeHR was the only one to do that. All our employees have adapted really quickly to the software, and it saves me time in that they can make requests for holidays and mileage expenses themselves which I then just have to accept.”

Cross Keys Estates

“We decided to go with SafeHR because the software was easier to use, it was reasonably priced and it covered all our ongoing, day-to-day requirements. My initial conversation with the team was really helpful, and they covered everything I needed to know.”

Birmingham Education Partnership

For a small company like us, we think it’s perfect. We really appreciate having the support there to help up us get set up. We also think the guides are really helpful and that the system is user friendly.”

The Landing Place restaurant

“Previously, I would have scoured Google to find answers to HR issues, but now I can find reliable information within the SafeHR software itself. And if there is anything I’m still unsure about, I know I can just email or ring someone and get a quick response. SafeHR is my HR oracle!”
