In my usage of Sympa, I find that it's very useful for onboarding, goal management, and organizational structure lookups. I haven't yet experienced any areas where it doesn't work well or isn't appropriate. We have many other software systems that work in tandem with Sympa.

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.

  • Loading speeds have been a bit slow at points.
  • Our customized interface is easy to use but beginning to feel a bit dated (could use a refresh).
  • Minor user-interface features could be added to take it to the next level.

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

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].
