    Sapling

    It's a good space to have a high level overview of the organization (especially Org view). Places for improvement include extra levels of complexity when you need to click on the person and you are navigated to the pop-up that is hard to use and only one pop up can be used at a time. I wish there wasn't so much of clicking in and clicking out.

    Sapling

    • Very customizable. Very easy to create new workflows and tasks to meet the unique needs of your organization.

    Cons

    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.

    Sapling

    • Deeper data management/review - dashboard experience could be better and deeper
    • Ability to drill into reports within the tool- right now it takes you out to a sheet to view
    • Org planning/org chart sharing

        To use this system you need to buy several add-ons. If add-ons do not fit your business model you will have to access platforms from different companies. The system is not easy to use for onboarding. Candidates cannot change and update settings. To use the system a person must click in the correct spots. If not it leads you someplace else. Then you have to start clicking all over again.

        Sapling HR helps my HR team keep track of our personal information like contact information or t-shirt sizes (who doesn't like free shirts), as well as helping new hires onboard. I think it's super simple to use and keeps everything pretty nicely organized.

        Alternatives Considered

        Sage

        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].

        Sapling [HR] was our first and only HR automation platform. We ran a trial campaign with them and did not compare them to other vendors.

        Return on Investment

        Sage

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

        • We were able to get the system implemented very quickly, which was of great importance to us as we were undergoing rapid growth.
        • The system has helped us keep and stay organized and allowed team members to work collaboratively to get tasks done. Many of these tasks were previously managed with various spreadsheets and other trackers that were quickly becoming unmanageable.
        • Sapling has greatly decreased the time we needed to onboard and employee and has prevented many errors.
