For an organization like ours, with staff at many different locations, it is extremely helpful. It also creates standardized workflows in all locations. Because the program is widely adopted, it is very helpful in that the training programs we have developed can be deployed at new locations. It is also helpful for different departments.

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.

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].

UKG is a beast. I feel like it is meant for organizations with 1000 employees or more instead of a few hundred. SmartLinx Solutions is a bit more down-to-earth.
