The amount of screens you had to go through to put in one new hire and the product was from a re-seller and direct support was difficult to obtain

Recommendations

Make sure the software will function for what you need it for BEFORE purchasing.

Abra's support and notifications of updates are beneficial. The system is very user-friendly. I have lots of information at my fingertips. The system those all the regular reporting such as 941's and W-2's.

Great product if you process your payroll in house and is more cost effective for the size of our organization.

The software allows easy uploading and access of employee documentations for employment regulations.

Likes Least

When multiple users are on, delays were occurring and documents were lost after uploading failures occurred.

Recommendations

I'd like more security. I think that individuals with access should be allowed to upload documents freely. But reviewing and downloading personal info should be regulated to upper management.

I received virtually zero training on Sage HRMS when I was initially assigned to a company-wide HR data reconstruction; the ease-of-use Sage offered was much appreciated. It is straightforward, making it quite user0friendly even for a novice HRMS employee like myself. It took me minimal effort to distinguish between the different areas in Sage HRMS, including the reporting portion of the software. The goal of my project was to convert ancient hard-copy employee records from two recently merged companies into a digital format, then upload them into Sage HRMS to ensure the entire directory of HR data could be found in one central location by users across the US. The ease of use allowed this process to flow smoothly, which was a God-send for a project manager such as myself.

Likes Least

The downside is Sage HRMS has a very slow upload speed, and uploading multiple documents at once is not an option. My project consisted of compiling several different pieces of information (such as employee I-9s, Tax Forms, Employee Agreements), and I was not able to upload all of those documents at the same time, then assign them to their respective categories within the employee file. That would have decreased the amount of time I spent on uploading documents by over half. Often times, as well, I would be uploading several documents one right after the other, and Sage would crash. There was one instance where I could not access the software for an entire day, because it had crashed and the techs had to run an update before I could get back to work. I checked with the managing partner for the software, and she confirmed that this was an issue and not something I could work around in a timely manner.

Recommendations

Training is not required due to the ease of use, but it is recommended. There were a few times where I ended up completing processes in a much more complicated manner. Then an advanced user showed me an easier way. I would also suggest that you prepare yourself for spending a lot of time uploading documents should you have to do a complete revamp like myself. However, once you have employee information uploaded, maintenance is easy. Adding employees, as well as the data, goes much quicker when it does not involve multiple (hundreds) of uploads within a day. This will also help prevent issues with crashing.
