Sage HRMS

Sage HRMS is a software that fits in all organizations whether small or large and this makes it the most suitable HR solution as it will help you manage your workforce even if it may appear small. The software has analytics and reporting tools that are applicable in performance management where you will use them in assessing the productivity of your employees and plan on how to improve further as a workforce. It further helps in employee on-boarding, payroll management, and talent management

SAP Core HR and Payroll

SAP HR can be well suited for global companies with operations in multiple countries. The Payroll module needs to be limited to one instance per country, otherwise trying to maintain multiple countries on the same instance is too complicated.I would not recommend using SAP HR and Payroll for smaller companies because the total cost of ownership and the lack of flexibility will make it unfeasible. There are many cloud-based options now a days available that would fit better for this type of scenario.

Pros

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.

Cons

Sage HRMS

  • 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
Cathey Pangborn | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Core HR and Payroll

  • The interface and graphic look and feel are not very modern.
  • Provide more intuitive and easier screens and functionality - Too many scroll bars.
  • Make messages back to users more descriptive.

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

Sage HRMS

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].

Return on Investment

Sage HRMS

  • By combining Sage Abra with HrActions we have decreased our manual workload by 80%. Electronic forms have been a great asset.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SAP Core HR and Payroll

  • SAP HR is suited for large companies with a sufficient budget. Small budgets will not be able to cover the expensive licensing, technical personnel and consultants required of an SAP installation.
  • In regards to the total cost of ownership, my ROI experience has been that by replacing SAP HR modules with cloud solutions we have been able to reduce the cost up to 60% while modernizing our systems and improving the employee experience.
  • I would encourage decision makers to look for cloud-based alternatives with a robust system integration, before believing that supporting every area of HR with a single SAP installation is a good long-term strategy. Having SAP HR as the core integrated to best-in-class cloud-based systems is a very valid and effective system strategy.
