Likelihood to Recommend

Ascentis HR

I would recommend the HR system over the Payroll system 10x over. The payroll system has many more glitches and workarounds; however, if you are like our organization you want an integrated product. If you are a smaller organization and have the time to reverify the report information, I would recommend the HR piece. The ESS system is a strong positive for us!

Implement new front end technologies and smart forms, and improve the overall user experience across all platforms and I'd be recommending it to my peers.

Pros

  • A clean system that is easy to navigate through and change information
  • Ability to grow into the system and customize to our company's tracking needs and changes
  • Robust system that holds a tremendous amount of critical information in one place
Catherine Peterson profile photo
  • You create the organization structure when setting up employees (define direct reports) and WebHR uses this for its logic. For example; creating organization charts; Applying roles so managers automatically have access to direct reports information; direct reports interact with their managers to request vacation time, performance evaluations, etc.
  • We are working within the Google apps business edition which permits easy implementation of WebHR within the organization.

Cons

  • I really can't say that Ascentis needs to improve at this point. It's a great system for organizations who want a full-bodied system without the expense and downtime of implementation and training.
Dawn Haag-Hatterer, JD profile photo
  • Performance improvement needed
  • UI changes needed
  • Has some not needed features, like Badges

Likelihood to Renew

Ascentis HR5.3
Based on 8 answers
This rating would be a 10 if it were not for some issues we have been having recently with the benefit carrier connections. The carrier connections are critical for us so how these issues are resolved will be key in our renewal decision.

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.

Alternatives Considered

The user adaptability of Ascentis is far superior to other HRIS I have used. The ability for the user to taylor the system to the specific needs of the company is by far the biggest selling point of the system. Additionally, the reporting feature which allows the user to pull data from any field in the system, even customized fields, is extremely attractive and not common with other HRIS

I don't know any other products like WebHR, but I'm pretty sure it's a good solution for any organization, and it's improving constantly.

Return on Investment

  • Improved employee communication and customer service. Empowered employees to keep their own data current and relevant
  • Streamlined the recruiting, benefits administration and onboarding processes to significantly reduce the amount of time required by HR. Reduced the HR staff by 1.5 FTE as a direct result of implementation of Ascentis HR and Ascentis Recruiting.
  • Significantly impacted the companies ability to maintain compliance with Affirmative Action requirements.
Kelly C. Neill, SPHR profile photo
  • We used to lose deals because of losing req information or not having it at all, now we have control and visibility over each hiring deal.
  • We can all access service providers and employee updated information quickly using WebHR for contracts and roadmap.
  • We can coordinate and document client interviews using forms with client availability, speeding up the whole process.
