NEOGOV Onboard

It can streamline a variety of recruiting and talent management processes if the environment is coming from very manual/dated processes. It can reduce the office administrative requirements and reduce the paper trail by managing information electronically.

Optimum Solutions HRIS

Optimum Solutions works very well for all our payroll needs. We run payrolls weekly, semi-monthly, monthly and yearly. The end of year process is lined out very well and webinars are available to go over any new regulations required.We haven't utilized the HR part of the software as much on the iSeries but are planning on changing that once we get converted to the Windows version later this year. The main reason for this is the HR part of the software on the iSeries is separate from payroll.

Pros

NEOGOV Onboard

  • Good value.
  • Built based on U.S. public sector organizations and needs.
  • Paper reduction and improved efficiencies.

Optimum Solutions HRIS

  • The setup of Optimum HRIS was intense as the software comes as a basic shell and everything is personalized to our organization. All earnings codes, leave time, employee types, job codes, taxes, etc. are set up for each company. While this was almost overwhelming at the beginning, we have so much control over the set up and better grasp of the inner workings of the system.
  • Tax updates come quickly and are easily applied. This is especially welcome at year end.
  • The built-in reporting is robust and offers a lot of options, but the ability to dig in to the database using SQL and Excel allows for very powerful reports that are infinitely personalized.

Cons

NEOGOV Onboard

  • Based on a U.S. public sector so it is specific for the government; not sure it supports other or private businesses.
  • As with many HR system solutions, there are limitations that need workarounds.
  • The position description is not straightforward when posting jobs. Text and formatting manipulation are time-consuming rather than being able to copy an existing post.

  • When exporting reports to Excel I found the formatting to be difficult to work with and having to reformat the reports can be a nightmare. My company's IT department created its own business tools to make the reporting format more user friendly.

NEOGOV has more limitations than bigger HCM solutions and is limited to public sector/government operations.

Optimum Solutions HRIS

We evaluated some payroll services but found the ongoing cost greater than the initial cost of purchasing our own software and keeping the payroll process in house. Other payroll software was generally more expensive and we are satisfied with Optimum Solutions. I would say the main reason we stayed with Optimum Solutions, converting from their iSeries version to their Windows version, was because of their outstanding staff and support.
