Pros

Since we have rolled out the Self-Service tool, my employees love it. They are so excited about the features and how much they can access for their own screens.

KC

Karen C.

Ascentis was our HRIS system several years ago and it was a great way to keep all of our employee data. It was very customizable and the help desk was great.

LW

Lillia W.

I find the application easy to use and very straightforward. The vendor team has great customer service and is very helpful.

KS

Karman S.

Pros

It is very customizable with a great team behind it to configure the software to meet our needs. I like that it also supports matrix organization views and the ability to generate reports.

DM

Darien M.

The flexibility of the system to be manipulated and tweaked to fit the needs of each client is amazing. The team behind it are super responsive and helpful and could not be recommended highly enough.

CR

Colin R.

The customer service is excellent, with rapid turnaround of requests. The team are dedicated to ensurung the best possible user experience and are a pleasure to work with.

SK

Sally K.

Cons

Timecard and payroll are not integrated directly, thus we must work directly with third parties, which can create problems if there is a problem with payroll.

MW

Mark W.

We were tired of having vendors add ridculous fees and for stifling our ability to make back-end changes. In addition, they made numerous mistakes in processing taxes and garnishments.

KH

Kristy H.

All fields are self-explanatory. You need no guidance to use this product.

SR

Savitha R.

Cons

The hierarchy system and navigation was initially confusing for some of our users.

DM

Darien M.

I'm still not entirely convinced by the budget setting screens, which displayed the salary budget in a way that confused some of the managers.

CA

Cheryl A.

Reporting which is heavily used at peak times can cause a drag on performance. We have implemented a shadow reporting database and tightly managed online report access to manage this issue.
