«If support is important to you, go with Ascentis»

Support

Overall rating

Benefits:

The best part about Ascentis is their support, hands down. It is very rare that we have to wait more than 1 or 2 business days to get an issue resolved or an answer to a question. If it is an urgent matter, they are on it immediately. In addition, we get a dedicated Account Manager that is very responsive and helpful. Even when our account managers have changed, they are always brought up to speed and haven't dropped a ball yet.

Drawbacks:

The modules are somewhat segmented. We log into one application for payroll, another application for HR, and another application for timekeeping. They are working toward getting everything centralized and web-based, but they aren't quite there yet.

In sum:

Overall, our experience with Ascentis has been positive. We saved a little bit of money, gained the support we needed, were able to streamline the close of payroll periods, and can process payroll much quicker.

Overall rating

Benefits:

It's very easy to punch in/out using this system. When I forget to punch, or there's any issue, it's simple to put in a request to my supervisor.

Drawbacks:

It took a while to get used to the format, but I am starting to find it enjoyable and easy to use. Beats filling out the antiquated print-outs of time cards and remembering to get them to my boss.

In sum:

I don't really like the color scheme, so if they ever gave the option to switch to a different color I would take it. That is not a complaint or a problem.

Overall rating

Benefits:

Ascentis has been easy to understand in the set-up interaction and backing has been extremely useful with any inquiries we have. This is our first HRIS, and it is so ideal to have all representative data in one area. The framework has been not difficult to make refreshes in.

Drawbacks:

The most difficult thing for us is getting Tax questions replied when required as the assessment division isn't however effectively open as they may be in another city, which is a few hour time distinction for us and you need to email them with any inquiries to find a solution.

In sum:

outstanding by far.

Overall rating

Benefits:

The easy of use is great. The implementation team is fantastic! Our company experience has been great. We transitioned to several modules that included: HR, Payroll, Time, Recruiting/Onboarding, Performance Management and Learning. Each team lead has been responsive and has provided great support and education thru the process. Support members are extremely knowledgeable and timely.

Drawbacks:

Only concern could be working with several other systems vs. single system. We view this as both a pro and con, but the pros out weigh the con's, without a doubt.

Overall rating

Benefits:

The recruiting feature is collects good data, candidates are able to complete the application. The performance reviews module is straight forward and the wizard makes it easy, very easy, for employees to complete their reviews.

Drawbacks:

It can be hard to get the system to do what you want! For example, our company uses the Kudos feature all the time. However it takes 3-4 clicks to find the "give kudos" button. I have made several requests to move the button, but I am told it can't be done. Applicants see a plain white page with small font as they use the wizard to click through the application process.

In sum:

Overall we have implemented the system and we are using it. Ascentis support is helpful.
