In the ever-evolving business world, it’s vital to find the right solutions to streamline your internal processes. Here at Droplet, we're not shy about promoting our secret weapons, the tools that have transformed the way we handle our HR administration and operations. They have not only made our lives easier but have also allowed us to focus on what truly matters – our team's growth and engagement, and consequently the success of our customers.
Droplet’s Top 5:
Gusto has become our go-to solution for handling all HR administration tasks. Managing payroll is a breeze, thanks to Gusto's automation of benefit deductions, tax compliance, direct deposits, and more. Gusto's employee self-service portal empowers our team by providing a user-friendly platform to:
- Access pay records easily
- Update personal information conveniently
- Manage benefits
Recognizing outstanding performance is at the heart of our culture. That's where Nectar comes into play. Beyond being a recognition tool, Nectar elevates engagement, reinforces our core values, and simplifies the rewards process, all within a super easy to use interface. We're passionate about celebrating our team's achievements, and Nectar enables us to do that by facilitating peer-to-peer recognition, gathering feedback, and providing a straightforward rewards catalog. All fully integrated into our core systems (like Google and Slack).
Let's talk about Slack – it's the place where we chat, share docs and information, send memes, and have those spontaneous huddles to collaborate with our team. With channels, we're connecting the dots across departments and even outside partnerships. We've put Slack’s integrations and automation to work for us. When a lead completes our "book demo" form, our inbound team gets an instant alert. Also, our team members receive public recognition as they're recognized, along with those sweet Nectar points landing in their accounts.
When it comes to managing business travel and expenses, Navan replaced our old spreadsheets and email back and forths. Navan empowers our team to handle all things travel. Whether it's booking, monitoring, or managing personal and business travel, it's all made simple with this user-friendly, all-in-one platform. Here are a few other cool features that we take advantage of:
- Travel policy enforcement
- Travel credit cards
- Group trip coordination
- Travel expense reimbursement
Lastly, at Droplet we also love using Droplet! (duh). It's our secret weapon for optimizing any bespoke internal process that pops up. We rely on the platform to automate core processes such as employee onboarding and offboarding, software access requests (for the audit trails and SOC 2 compliance), conference attendance requests, new customer onboarding, requesting work from our professional service team, and so much more! It’s a swiss army knife for all things that involve multiple approvers.
We believe that innovation and adaptation are key to our success, and we hope that sharing our journey can help inspire your digital transformation as well!
