Pros

Keeps Us Up To Date on Payroll Changes. We don
t have to worry about law changes or payroll changes.

Cons

No so easy to learn and understand. Somewhat complicated which I assume it has to be to encompass the necessary laws.

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.

It's better than hand processing payroll

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.

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.

I have not had any problems with the product or vendor.

Recommendations

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