    Cons

    BenefitMall

    • So far I see no disadvantages
    • I suppose they could offer health insurance group coverage as their competitors do but I did not find any cost advantage when we had it priced out with another system
    • The submit timeline is sometimes a problem because I need to submit at EST and that puts pressure on me to have done by 1 or 2 pm AZT.

    Sage

    • We changed our chart of accounts. The system does not allow you to change the numbering format, so we had to start over with new databases.
    • The tax return portion of the software does not file local taxes. We would definitely like to see this functionality in the future.
    • The payroll piece does not handle complicated move up and move downs for union pay. This could definitely be improved upon.

        I do not work with this software anymore, and I am not involved with the renewal of it. However, if I were, I would still suggest using it unless something better was introduced

        Alternatives Considered

        BenefitMall

        There was no place for me to track and store employees information. No HR back up. I had to email all the names and hours to my rep and hope I didn't forget anyone.

        Sage HRMS was very cost effective for a non-profit. It does all that we needed as a company and more. It also allows us to handle payroll ourselves instead of outsourcing [it].

        • there can be a high ROI when processing payroll in house compared to outsourced. Not to mention the flexibility you gain.
