What do you like best?

Cascade is a planning and execution software. You come up with the idea of an organization, you set your vision, you work upon it, you plan your strategies, and in the end u fizzle up everything but cascade can make your dreams come true and your chances of failure due to strategic errors are lowered to zero. Cascade helps you focus your attention on the things which are important and are in need of more attention. It’s easier to understand in most of its features, it has an excellent customer support service. All of your staff can have access to your goals, plans and projects. The transparency of the system is the major aspect of the software. Everyone in your teams knows what to do. At a click of the button you are able to strategies your plans. The report generating is too easy and helpful to keep record of the work. Everything is very organized and the UI of the software is quite user friendly. You can edit anything in between the plan any time. They update the software regularly and keeps on introducing the new features to their users. Cascade does not have any free version but it provides its users with a free trial version to check whether the software is of their use or not. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

There are some areas (some features) that requires some refinement like restricted access and formatting etc. Another drawback of the software is that it is only available in one language i.e. English which is quite frustrating like it should be available in other languages like Spanish and German etc. The price is a bit more for small or even medium sized organizations. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Cascade is used by our company to evaluate performance of employees by managing and viewing their progress. The number of customization options is unlimited and sometimes they can be overwhelming. The modules are also customizable and since our company is large it really fits in according to our needs. The employees can also view their progress and progress of their team members and use it to apply for sick and vacation leaves. So it confines communication and management to one platform that's why it is an all in one platform. The organization system they have is the best I have seen so far. It stores data and information and makes our recruitment process easier. It makes the whole process more quicker so gives us time to focus on our business. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The main problem I faced with Cascade was that how confusing its interface is. It is not user friendly at all when you first start using it and it takes a lot of time to get used to it. It is difficult to navigate and there are no drag and drop options present. I hope they introduce them in future. The customer service was unhelpful and slow.

Honestly there is nothing good I can say about this system. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Outdated and old fashioned system. Unfortunately our HR advisers that we use referred us to Cascade , transferring to them has been a big mistake. The system is not user friendly and any customer service is super slow. I called them this week to inquire about a new product, after the pitch which was poor the sales person didn't even follow up with a email as she promised. This company is a complete joke., cant wait to get my new system up and running. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Cascade does have a good organization system, especially if your website has a large number of pages. Our site is pretty large and it's easy to find what your looking for because the folder system using root folders and sub-folders which make it easy to navigate, as opposed to other CMS platforms where all the pages are listed in one lengthy list. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Cascade is not user friendly at all and small changes require a ton of work. There are no drag and drop modules so everything must be hard-coded. There aren't easy plug-ins to add content, buttons, etc. Resizing and rearranging photos on a page is a nightmare. You really can't use this CMS if you're not proficient in HTML and CSS, so not ideal for a marketing team trying to host their site with minimal HTML knowledge. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would only consider Cascade for your CMS if you are mostly working with developers who have the expertise and time to help you do what you need to do. It is not built for marketers or website owners who want ease of use and simple customization & changes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We host our company's website in Cascade as well as our blog. It is an ecommerce site, so we are able to generate a large amount of direct revenue through our cascade site. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The most effective aspect of Cascade is that it allows for effective syncing across various HR programs. This allows for (largely) smooth management of most HR processes through Cascade. We have found that it has decreased the time spent on shifting between priorities and managing employee data by employing Cascade as our one-stop-shop solution for HRM. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Above all else, the interface of Cascade is its biggest liability. While one can expect a certain level of simplicity to be desired, it makes Cascade feel a little lacking at times. There's a general sense of repetition and not enough separation/distinction between the multiple modules. Additionally, like other users, we have had some trouble with the software logging us out consistently while using it, which makes the potential time saved negligible overall. There are some great pieces there, but it's not quite where it should be as of yet. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While Cascade shows some promise, it is not without its flaws. I would definitely recommend giving the free demo option a try to see how it feels for yourself. In truth, you may find that it works great for your organization and that you can forgive its sometimes nagging flaws. There is a great personality under the hood and with some improvements, Cascade can definitely be one of the stronger HRM software solutions out there. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our best solution as a result of Cascade has been the time-saving aspect of having everything centralized within the software. It has allowed for greater efficiency in accessing employee data and making related personnel decisions. However, because of some of the limitations of the software, the time-savings doesn't always work out the way we had envisioned. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
