Product Overview

The people at Mangrove believe there’s no “one size fits all” type of HR software. Mangrove focuses on flexibility and tailors its solutions to match each company’s needs.

The software covers many core HR tasks while also offering analytic tools for strategic decision making.


Mangrove has 8 central software modules, and also integrates with several third party applications for meeting unique needs. These central modules include:

Human Capital Management: Collect and store essential employee information for one master record on each employee. HR can manage all workforce information from on-boarding to retirement and termination.  Automated notifications can be set up  for keeping track of performance reviews, benefits eligibility, and more.

The solution also allows you to complete government documents and check compliance regulations such as with EEOC, OSHA, ACA and COBRA participation.

Payroll and Tax Management: Through an easy to use interface, HR can save time automating tax filing and gain a better strategic understanding on payroll expenses through reporting features. Complex calculations aren’t a problem for Mangrove’s payroll solution no matter your number of employees. Tax jurisdictions are accounted for in the software for federal, state, and all local taxes.

Self-Service: Employees and managers can access the system as users for updating information without HR’s assistance.

Recruitment and Applicant Tracking: As information is entered into the system for each hiring candidate, this module integrates so that the information never has to be entered twice and follows the candidate throughout the employee life cycle.

The solution helps you narrow down candidates with custom screening questionnaires, setting qualifications, and more. Other recruitment tasks can be tracked for scheduling interviews, posting job positions, and reviewing resumes. Real-time reporting features help HR create a successful hiring strategy.

Performance Management: Map out your workforce for identifying successors and performance gaps. Create competency profiles for measuring employees’ skills across the company. Clearly align company and employee goals for making the most with a productive workforce.

Career Development and Training: Finely construct training for on-boarding and succession planning. Manage your training budget and schedule sessions by tracking facility and training assets. Employees’ master records are updated while enrolled in training programs for keeping track of tests and certifications.

Business Intelligence and Analytics: Compile and export vital information on your company’s performance. Give HR the data needed for making a strategic impact and improving the bottom line.

Benefits Administration: This module includes portals for employee benefits as well as compliance regulations such as:

  • COBRA Administration
  • HIPPA Regulations
  • Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRA)
  • Health Savings Accounts (HSA)
  • Travel expense reimbursements
