Pros

SENSITIVE CONTENT] were awesome during the implementation period. They went the extra mile to ensure we were up and ready by our desired deadline.

I love it for managing payroll and benefits. The Sentric support team is always helpful, responsive and.

BC

Beth C.

I like that the software has a nice appealing layout. It is easy to use and easy to navigate.

AN

Alissa N.

Pros

My overall experience with APS has been outstanding, will always recommend them to anyone.

FW

FELISHA W.

The recruiting/hire feature has saved me hours of work in relation to on-boarding. It's been amazing to have the seamless transfer of employee data into payroll.

FS

Felicia S.

Being able to combine payroll AND HR online is amazing. I love the reporting options I have and that I can still run payroll in house but have APS handle the taxes so they are done correctly.

RC

Robin C.

Cons

I think that sometimes questions or requests are lost in translation when it comes to email. There have been times when what I have attempted to communicate has not being interpreted correctly.

BT

Brenda T.

The reports are difficult to learn and run and limited in the fields.

KA

Kristen A.

The only complaint we had was one of our employees has some trouble with the mobile app … otherwise we have found no other problems.

TL

Tammy L.

Cons

The only thing I dislike was the initial integration. I misunderstood what APS would do, and thought we were hiring someone to actually process our weekly payroll.

JW

Jodi W.

And we dislike that you have to use the drop down when correcting time sheets instead just being able to type in the correct time.

TC

Tammy C.

Comments are necessary if a punch is missed: for example, if an employee forgot to clock in from lunch, they would have to enter the comment "missed clock in after lunch 12:15" before they clock out.

Pros

The reason I like the most about SentricHR is very easy to use, I did not get the training before switching to this new software, after submitting the payroll the report is automatically email to me directly , with current payroll report and YTD report, it is easy to prepare payroll entries for accounting book.

Cons

The payroll report can not be generated into excel format

Sentric Review

Reviewed 3 years ago

Payroll is now handled externally.

Pros

I no longer have to handle my payroll which makes it much easier to conduct and run my business. Given the pricing and strong customer support, it has been a welcome addition to our processes. I hope to be able to advance many more opportunities to add additional resources and utilize the payroll services across our growth periods at Integrity Resources.

Cons

I need to get back to my business. There has been quite a bit of time invested up front. We need to get through the surveys, portals, and general paperwork. I was anticipating more of a hands off approach, which hopefully will be the case once we get through the initial set up phase here in the near future.

Payroll, expertise, simplicity, access to information, reporting

Pros

It does everything we need it. Customer service is prompt and professional. Sentric is always working to improve the software. Recommend to all my friends.

Cons

Time keeping....the time keeping side of the software is not as great as the workforce side. Feel it could have an overhaul or needs some major improvements compared to how our previous time keeping worked.

Very User Friendly

Reviewed 3 years ago

Sentric makes payroll so easy for us to process.

Pros

I like that the software has a nice appealing layout. It is easy to use and easy to navigate. I like that employees can go into the software and request their own days off and view their own paychecks. I love the technical support team - they are always so patient and understanding. They are there to help you learn the software.

Cons

I think the reports are a little hard to understand at first. Setting up benefits can be a little troublesome until you know what you are doing. While some functions are user friendly some functions take instruction and practice. This is not meant not deter any potential users, keep in mind that Sentric has amazing customer support. They will call and walk you through any procedure.

Top notch customer service. They are very responsive and have been helpful in implementation.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Sentric helped us streamline multiple software systems into one all in one solution for payroll and HRIS and ATS. Helped a lot in simplifying our time tracking to payroll.

Pros

The payroll module and open enrollment are great. Love the performance management feature as well. If you have some basic html knowledge, you can do a lot to make the system your own.

Cons

I believe there is room to improve on the ATS/Recruiting portion of the software. It works and can get the job done, but would love the ability to put more notes and chat with hiring managers within user profile. I will note that Sentric has consistently made changes and continues to get better.

Great software for small businesses and high value for the money

Pros

handles most of the payroll functions and tax filings with minimal input. I really like the fact that it can be programmed to code your payroll using your GL structure

Cons

isn't always intuitive, has a bit of a learning curve to it. It does take a fair amount of training in order to become proficient.

Processing payroll myself thru Sentric is very easy now. Before I had to submit to our main office, they entered thru Peoplesoft and sent to ADP to process, I had to wait for reports. Now I get everything in minutes instead of days.

Transitioning and adapting to Sentric Workforce has proven mostly favorable

Reviewed 4 years ago

A better understanding of how payroll/time clock software integrates with HR.

Pros

System works well for mid-size organizations and can be customized according to the organization's needs and pay rules. More or less it was a seamless transition from the larger payroll provider I had utilized in the past, as well as more affordable. The account representatives that I deal with the majority of the time are professional, kind, hard-working, and knowledgeable.

Cons

We utilize Attendance On Demand, which is the time clock side of Sentric and it is more challenging to correct issues since it's a 3rd party application. Additionally, some of the features within Sentric are less than user-friendly and do not often have clear instructional guides on "how-to's" (I can assume this is mostly due to all the customizations).

We are a small business and outsource most of our professional services. I like that Sentric works consistently on its own and we’ve never had an issue with missed paychecks.
