Why people love Freshteam over Personio

Implementation in minutes

Start with Freshteam's free trial and all it takes are minutes to get the tool set up. Upgrade to a paid plan/downgrade to the free one at any time with just a few clicks. Neither pay extra for implementation nor depend on an implementation manager’s assistance, unlike with Personio.

A truly global HR solution

Unlike Personio’s Europe-focused tool, Freshteam caters to businesses from all over the globe and can be configured for the needs of HR teams in any country. With Freshteam in place, time off for employees in multiple countries can be managed with literally zero hassles! 

No hidden costs

Unlike Personio, Freshteam doesn't come with implementation charges that are excluded from the total price. Also, you pay for Freshteam and get all the key features enabled. You don't have to get additional add-ons that come at an extra cost, which is the case with Personio.
