Pulling information quickly: to do Employment Verification for existing or former employees, getting contact and benefit information about employees, compensation history, and present history, job title, position hours per week, and pulling reports for EEO reporting, employee lists for audits or evaluations etc.

iSolved

I think iSolved is perfect for a small business, that wants to avoid the high costs of using ADP or Paychex, and similarly want to have an all-in-one solution for their HR needs. Unlike other HCM programs that offer an all-in-one suite, I still have complete control over what products I offer to my employees. iSolved just helps me manage it all in one place.

Pros

  • Employee Self Service is excellent
  • Notes, attachments to employee records are easy to use
  • Management self service is also well thought out, although we would like to see managers included in their own team calendar views.

  • iSolved does a great job of having everything you need for HR/Payroll, all in one place. It is easy to log everything about your employees: personal information, business certifications, salary history, etc. It is easy for their managers and supervisors to approve their time off requests, and view other information to their level of clearance.
  • Payroll processing is a breeze, with the ability to process payroll for full time, part time, and hourly employees.
  • Though we don't use it, iSolved offers Time Cards so employees can log their time at their desk every day.

Cons

  • ESS Widgets - the widgets are a great tool but are so cumbersome to build I find we use them less and less
  • In our past we used the time system and it wasn't really robust enough for our needs
Kathi Groth profile photo
  • I would like it to be easier to add a supplementary payroll when processing a payroll outside of our normal bi-weekly schedule.
  • The way that PTO hours are accrued and displayed on their paychecks can be a bit confusing to the employees.

I love this product and have no plans on changing. Despite how much I like Ascentis, changing providers is an enormous undertaking and not one that I plan on taking on again

Usability

Ascentis HR7.0
Based on 7 answers
The system is intuitive and user friendly. My only concern is when it is time to create benefit plans for end of year open enrollment, I will need a refresher on all the great things I learned. The beauty of this is that they maintain a video library so you can walk through the steps as a refresher and then contact customer support with any specific questions. They truly give you the tools to make it easy.

Support

Ascentis HR7.3
Based on 85 answers
It is frustrating to call in and not be able to connect to a person. More and more we are being directed to "communities" but that does not take the place of support. For the money we pay each month we should be able to speak to a person with ease.

In-Person Training

Ascentis HR8.0
Based on 1 answer
First, to clarify our "in-person" training was done mainly through Web-X meetings and conference calls. It was the closest thing we got to as far as an "in-person" training for this software. However, for the large majority of it, this type of training worked out well. We were able to share our screens and the trainer was able to share his/her screen. We could follow along with what we were doing in our database in real time and see how different functions worked and how manipulating our information could produce different results. It was also nice in that it provided for real-time results if something hadn't been coded correctly or we were having issues as to why something wasn't working the way we thought it should be. However, it did have some downsides in that we often had to rely on a conference phone and that made it difficult to hear people on both sides. Also, sometimes the trainers had internet difficulties when working from home and that caused issues with the WebX meetings.

Online Training

Ascentis HR6.0
Based on 2 answers
Ascentis HR has a number of online training videos to watch on a number of different topics. I gave it a lower rating because there is not much interactivity with the videos and it seems to cater to really only one or two learning styles. Plus, one has to be pretty motivated to go to a separate area to access the videos and then pull up a specific one to watch it and then learn. From my experience, people know that they are there, many just don't take the time and effort to go find them and actually watch them - especially since the username and password are different from their normal username and password.

Implementation

Ascentis HR7.0
Based on 3 answers
Don't skip steps. The customer support for Ascentis HR left it up to us how far we wanted to go with implementation of benefits for example. I was very glad that I elected to go into the detail implementation that I did rather than just doing the basics and waiting until later to complete the process.

Return on Investment

  • Ascentis has allowed us to have a one source HRIS system, removing the need to for multi-systems as previously had prior to joining Ascentis. We have not only reduced cost by having an all in one but created stream line systems that have benefited both the employees and management.
Dena R. Washington, GCDF profile photo
  • iSolved has had a very positive impact on our business. As the control, I am able to have all things payroll and HR related at my fingertips at any time. I can make changes on the fly, in-between payrolls, instead of waiting to call them into the payroll company. My employees are able to answer a lot of questions themselves, which saves me a lot of time. And when they do come to me, I am able to answer questions quickly. The overall satisfaction with iSolved is very high.
