Likelihood to Recommend

Ascentis Timekeeper

Ascentis Timekeeper is very well suited for organizations with highly complex configurations. Less useful for very small organizations.

I would definitely recommend for smaller companies looking for a SaaS HRMS. It’s cost effective and flexible offering makes it ideal for smaller companies.

I would also recommend for larger companies too - role permissions, workflows, etc. can all be set and managed at a global level. Speaking of which, this system is also suitable for a global company as it allows for differentiation between locations for reporting, work calendars, on-boarding, etc.
