Extremely poor customer service. Inconsistent and flat out wrong answers which have caused more work for the HR Team as well as make us look bad without employees.

Pros

Some similarities to ABRA Suite. Crystal Reports still similar as well. Does not outweigh the cons at this time.

Cons

Support is extremely poor. We are supposed to have GOLD level support and we continually get first line tech support. Takes much too long to get the expert answers we need to move forward.

We are using SAGE for managing our Payroll and a couple other functions. We might even use it for the other functions this year as our experience with them has been good so far.

Abra is a pretty basic in-house payroll system. It helps automate more of the process into electronic records, but we still had to require paper timesheets and do a lot of manual cross-checking and verification before processing.

Pros

Basic, simple, cost effective

Cons

Lack of or not useful for timesheets records, have to back up internally, requires lots of manual work hours

Advice to Others

If you are looking for a low-cost payroll provider solution, see how much an online payroll provider that includes electronic timesheets or clocks (Paylocity, Paychoice, Paychex, Paycom, to name a few) first. The systems are hosted and seem much more robust.

I did not like this system at all until I had to try another system and then I realized they have both definite cons and pros. Their customer service is horrible and they do not usually provide much assistance and use outside support contractors that are not always pleasant or timely. I ran into problems quite frequently but I also have to say I was using it for a municipality, not a private company like the software was intended. I can say that the options for reports and capabilities are extremely extensive and the limits seemed never ending in terms of data. They had some hiccups with their ACA reporting add-on but in the end it was extremely simple, easy, and effective to use.

Pros

Features and functionality.

Cons

Customer Service.
Complicated to understand and learn at first.

Advice to Others

Would be great for a technology wiz and private company.

It has everything needed to perform the management of employees, easy to use and deploy

Likes Least

It has one missing component..the Payroll bit..one would think if you are going to manage people's performance management you would love the ability to pay them too..but that is not included.

Recommendations

Its good for performance reviews,which should be the biggest highlight to managing people in your organization

From start to finish the customer service from Fairsail was outstanding, in particular our account manager Dave Gulliver. The software has been easy to use and has all the appropriate fields required for the information we wish to store. There were a couple of issues in understanding the full capability of the system as design phase is done without using the system as a basis, therefore you have to define requirements without having experience of the system or being able to see it during the process. However, overall it is a straight forward fully functioning system for both employees and our HR teams to use and the reporting tool is also a good asset to have.

The software is great. I can usually set it up exactly how we need it to work, with few exceptions. It's intuitive and flexible - exactly what we needed.

Really, my only source of frustration is with the documentation. It often isn't able to answer my questions and I either need to contact a support person or play around until I can figure it out. This is tough when trying to self-implement.

We selected Fairsail as our Global HRIS solution 18 months ago and firmly believe we made the right choice for our specific business needs. The key positives being:

¿ Ease of configuration, enabling us to control/action changes internally and not rely on outside support
¿ Ability to tailor globally (to meet individual country¿s local requirement)
¿ Reporting functionality (using the Salesforce reporting engine)
¿ Cost effectiveness, compared to other similar products
¿ Speed of implementation
¿ Expert support

My only small negative feedback would be that one or two of the modules within the product suite (e.g. Recruitment) still need further development in order to bring them up to the quality of the core HCM product. Having said that they are aware of the restrictions and are working to significantly improve them.

Overall, having reviewed many other products, I would suggest Fairsail is one of the leading products for mid-size, multinational organisations.

Fairsail is simple to learn and easy to use and configure. It is powerful - includes all the core functionality most people will ever need across the entire employee lifecycle. Integrates really well with existing / other systems. Can be implemented rapidly. Sits on the salesforce platform which is very robust. The staff at Fairsail are fantastic to work with and offer outstanding service. The system is priced very reasonably, especially compared to bigger names in the market. Cannot recommend highly enough - by far and away the best HR software I have ever used!
