Likelihood to Recommend

Ascentis Recruiting

Ascentis Recruiting is well suited for a small company, or a company that is rolling out their very first ATS. The system is less appropriate for mid to larger sized companies; for users/companies that have had a robust ATS in the past. The system is very limited and is not user-friendly/intuitive. Customization for offer letters is difficult. The company nickel and dimes users on any additional buy-up.

Paycor

Paycor is a stable software that fits in human capital force management and payroll administration. One specific scenario where Paycor really helps is in submission of tax and other statutory deductions in a comfortable thereby lowering any lawsuits that maybe leveled against your company for failure to oblige with statutory tax deductions among others remittances

Pros

  • All information housed in one system
No photo available
  • We have employees in different states. They are very adept at handling all the different withholding requirements. I have experienced the same excellent service when there are special issues with visa withholding details.
  • Paycor has patiently addressed all my questions when I call in and in a very timely and professional manner. They know their business inside and out. And they are always patient and pleasant to speak with.
  • I love having Paycor do this payroll. When I was attempting to do it myself, I was getting constant notices from the state or IRS that this or that hadn't been done properly. I'm happy to report I no longer have that problem. The money spent on Paycor services is well worth it.

Cons

  • Affordable access for all users in an organization
  • Ability to download bulk resumes individually
  • Moving candidates through the process

  • A while back, Paycor went from having a dedicated person for our company to a team. I do miss the personalized care, but I have to say, I'm still getting a great level of care and competency.
  • Creating our own reports was a wonderful feature, added in the last few years. Perhaps some of those could be named, such as Unemployment Insurance Audit.

There is no dedicated rep. that is assigned to the company. Paycor support does not have dedicated lines for functions, so you get someone on the "team" but that person may not be the best to answer or help. It takes too much time to get answers to questions in this manner. Emails either go unanswered or responded to. When following up on an issue, it is often that I talk to someone different than I originally spoke with, when leads to more time lost.

Really think through your current processes. Some things need to be updated as you go through the implementation. That is really easier than making a change after the implementation is completed!

Alternatives Considered

Ascentis Recruiting does not even stack up against these platforms. We selected Ascentis Recruiting as it seemed to be a good system for the price point and what our organization needs were.

We used Ceridian's Source Assist and later the HR/Payroll Latitude web Products for over ten years. Customer support at Ceridian was a big reason we chose to leave, and Paycor's dedication to client satisfaction has not disappointed us. The lack of flexibility in Ceridian's platform always frustrated us and Paycor makes it easy to customize the product to meet our needs, instead of having to modify our requirements to fit the product's abilities. At Ceridian it seemed that changes, when made, rarely made things easier for us. We have been pleased to find that Paycor listens to client concerns and makes changes that make life easier.

Return on Investment

  • Negative: Users do not like the system. It is not intuitive.
  • Negative: Takes a lot of time to get candidate resumes out to hiring managers if you do not have a seat purchased for all of your hiring managers. Should be saving time for an organization but it does not.

  • Neutral - It is hard to tell without having all the capabilities of the system
