    Pros

    Flexibility and Customer service. The security in the system is also great for multiple companies in multiple pay groups.

    Cons

    Job history has been really hard to accurately track. Tracking applicants in multiple reqs has also been hard.

    Before we did everything manual including payroll now I know it saves time, energy and our time is more easily viewed.

    Pros

    Easy to change features within the system. If you want to add something it can be done to only a few people or a lot.

    Cons

    Reporting isn't easy if you want something different. The system has canned reports but anything else is difficult to achieve. Also the audit reporting isn't very clear.

    Pros

    Flexible full HRMS solution. This is PDS' core product line versus developers who also dabble in payroll, project accounting, accounts payable, etc. For PDS it is their bread and butter.

    Cons

    The old COBOL reports that currently exist in the system. However PDS is in process of replacing these in 2017.

    Pros

    Vista HRMS is a complete and comprehensive HR system, from the hiring process, through benefits, payroll, taxes, time management, etc. The Vendor is always on top of the latest tax laws (at least in the US) as well as always moving forward in the use of new technology while maintaining for those who haven’t quite caught up in technology. In addition, the system is open enough to allow the general super user to customize to fit their needs or for higher level customizations to meet even the most out-of-reach needs.

    Cons

    I personally came in after our Vista HRMS was installed and in use. What I found was our staff was lacking the training to make the system do what they needed. When inquiring our staff of this, it was expressed that the training they did receive was rushed and not understood. Since we went through a 3rd party instead of PDS directly, we were not able to work with PDS which reflected this lack of training. I cannot say that this is the vendors down fall exactly as I know my users but had there been a choice we would choose to work directly with PDS.
