Criterion HCM

We have not been happy with the functionality or reporting reports with this software. Numerous issues with employees not being able to clock in and out of the system. Employees' time sheets disappearing. Quarterly reports not matching to totals on batch payroll reports. Does not have the capability to electronically submit w-2's to state reporting agencies.

Pros

Criterion HCM

  • changes in pay rates
  • rehiring employees
  • payroll calculations
  • assisting with PTO accruals
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sage HRMS

  • We use the product to process weekly, biweekly and monthly payroll. It is easy to use for each type.
  • It manage HR and payroll data for our employees at 10 different locations in multiple states.
  • It streamlines the process for filing taxes. Rather than having to print reports, reenter data and file returns on external sites, I can process returns with a couple clicks of the mouse.

  • Attendance - attendance plan details tend to fluctuate from company to company therefore more flexibility to track time and deal with carry over amounts could be beneficial

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

Support is very slow to correct issues. I have actually reported an issue then 2-3 hours later received screen shots where they were able to do what we could not as though we were doing something different that usual. They are quick to say it is user error. Took too long to correct payroll reports and reports still do not reconcile. Very difficult to complete quarterly and annual reporting.

Alternatives Considered

Criterion HCM

When reviewing the various software before selecting Criterion HCM, it appeared to be the best choice and value. During implementation (which took nine months with us having to do most of the work) we realized we were not given accurate information regarding the software

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].
