    Very economical enterprise HR/Payroll system.

    Pros

    The ePersonality/NextGen software product line is solid and a much better economic fit for us compared to the competitors in the enterprise HR/Payroll space . The reporting and analytical capabilities of the system are impressive.

    Cons

    The user interface, while adequate, is sometimes confusing unless you have a solid understanding of the system.

    Made processing payroll much easier. My favorite process is trial calcs. We used to spend a lot of time figuring employees pay. Now it's a click of a finger

    Pros

    Once set up, processing payroll is quite easy to accomplish. User calcs run behind the scene to make even the most complicated payroll process quite nicely. Data entry is quick and easy. Pulling up information happens at the snap of a finger, so to speak.

    Cons

    Setting up the program is difficult for the non techie. User calcs must be written to make the system do more complicated calculations that are required to ensure payroll is prepared properly. Definitely requires a computer tech to maintain this system.

    Very easy to use.

    Pros

    Personality has a dynamic back bone that allows users the ability to design, shape and mold the software to meet your specific and ever changing business needs.
    Highline's exceptional support staff and willingness to work through issues is amazing.

    Cons

    Reporting can be difficult for those who don't understand table structure and sql script.
    Transfer of knowledge for system design is an extended process.

    Pros

    Highly customizable from the front to the back end of the software implies a high flexibility from both the company supporting it and the product. The interface can be modified by each user to fit their need and allows for a wide variety of permissions based profile. As we deal with a highly unionized environment the capacity of the software to adapt to the evolution of the Collective bargaining agreement was a must and so far never been a show stopper whether by adapting our methods or the tool. The BI Tool has also allowed a great visibility into one of our major cost center and has been instrumental in gain of efficiency over time. Any request for support is handled in the most courteous manner and in a timely fashion. Information is also readily available through their wiki website enabling power users and IT to get quick access to information regarding the database and core component of the software.

    Cons

    The higher flexibility and use of it comes with a price as we had to train some of our users more in-depth than with some of the more out of the box system. The need for power-users is also very local as you customize the system. No other company will have exactly the same system and so you can have a harder time hiring specialized employee that already know the system or finding resources outside the Highline user community.

    We went from two different systems into one HR/Payroll system. We gained efficiencies by only have to enter data once into one shared system. We eliminated a lot of human error that occurs when entering the same data twice. We were able to enforce our labor contracts by having only those involved in negotiations implement the updates to the system. We are now able to get real time data out of our payroll system to evaluate expected turnover rates, contract costs and stay current on meeting compliance issues.

    Pros

    Personality is highly configurable which is important when you have 26 different units that have completely different personnel policies, benefits, salaries and leave schedules that have to be evaluated for each employee, every two weeks during payroll. This configuration can be done by your own employees who are subject matter experts, who understand the macro or micro of your companies business needs. The ease of configuration allows the business owner to make the changes to the software based on their needs and not when the other software company gets you into their queue.

    Cons

    The color scheme for the test instance and production instance are the same and can lead to issues if you are not careful when working in one and thinking you are in the other. However I understand in the latest version currently being tested this is has become an updateable feature as well.

    Pros

    That is it customizable by Employer. I am excited about our upgrade in the next few months. All reports can be made into Excel which we are not able to do currently.

    Cons

    The program is cumbersome. Small edits can be a lot of work to correct. We have to be careful when entering because so many tables are multiplied in the background that correcting mistakes end up being a very manual process.

    Customizable, reports, enterprise system (we never had a formal HR system)

    Pros

    The product is customizable to our needs. We have a complex calculation for health benefit deductions and were able to build it into the system. Anything that is input, calculated in the system can be pulled out into a report.

    Cons

    The implementation took many more man hours than we expected and we were not advised on this subject until we actually started implementing. Also after the implementation is complete besides additional modules, a team still needs to remain on the project for issues, upgrades, patches etc.

    We also have several issues that have not been resolved for more than 1 year.

    We never missed a payroll. Unfortunately we moved to a new Payroll/HR system due to costs associated to the Oracle environment which did not align with our Corporate SQL Server standard.

    Pros

    The database was the most solid relational database I've ever used. It was developed with a very strong focus on standards and consistency across all products in High Lines suite.

    We never missed a payroll in the 17 years we used the product.

    The suite of products all integrated nicely.

    Being a smaller company with their own development staff, High Line could quickly modify the product to meet industries changing needs.

    Although the software frontend did change over time, the basic functionality never changed. It only got better with more functionality through each major revision.

    Oracle database was very solid with years of database knowledge behind the product and with nice system administration tools.

    Cons

    Lack of a SQL Server database version creates a heavy dependency on Oracle creates a high cost environment.

    New functionality was often added with very specific (or specific customer) focus specifications and requirements. This often resulted in a new functionality which was not very useful to the customer base as a whole. Often the functionality had to be reworked or "upgraded" to meet similar needs for the larger customer base. In some ways this could be considered a positive since they were constantly looking for ways to add functionality to the product.
