Sage People

Sage People is well suited to small-medium sized organizations that would like a cloud-based HR solution with no need for servers or software to install. I really like the fact that it is based on Salesforce.com so you know that it will be extremely reliable and well supported. It is very flexible and customizable and can work in complex HR arrangements. For example, we have employees in nearly 60 countries and multiple HR jurisdictions and we are able to make it work for us. However, if you are moving from a traditional or customized HR system there may be a steep learning curve and you should be prepared to spend a lot of time setting up and customizing to your needs, in addition to training.

Pros

Sage People

  • Sage is highly flexible and configurable, allowing us to manage the variety of geographies and functional units in one platform.
  • Sage is highly customer focused, with great CSM support.
  • Sage People will be able to integrate with other Sage pillars such as Accounting and Payroll.

  • Unfortunately our experience was very poor, so I don't have anything for what they do "particularly" well.

Cons

Sage People

  • We found out-of-the-box configuration and fields for employees and salary to be lacking and had to do extensive customization especially for salary.
  • Basic salary functionality like uniform pay grades and automatic calculations based on FTE are lacking. This makes simple things like COLA adjustments to be a chore.
  • It is very easy to customize, which is a "Pro", but also means that you might have to do quite a bit of customization to get it to do what you'd like.
  • The employee Self-serve ("WX") interface can be a bit slow at times.

  • Transparency about the capabilities of their system. We would have never chosen WingSpan had we had a clear picture of the limitations of their system.
  • Ease of use - as an administrator we found it to be difficult to work with. Of course, improvements may have been made in this area since we used it last.
  • The user interface could use some updating.

Alternatives Considered

Sage People

Sage was a better fit for us for two reasons. One is that SuccessFactors seemed geared toward larger, more structured companies rather than to mid-size companies. The second reason is that from an Implementation standpoint, Sage has their own team while SuccessFactors uses third-party vendors. We felt that Sage would be more invested with us and a better partner in our success.

We used Cvent following our WingSpan experience. It worked out much better and had more capability than WingSpan.

Return on Investment

Sage People

  • Sage People has helped us to standardize our HR processes across a complex multinational environment. Overall, this has saved us time and resources
  • Licensing can be expensive especially for HR administrator licenses, and non-profit pricing isn't as good as we would hope. However, in the long run, costs are saved because there is no need for internal infrastructures such as servers or client applications
  • Integration with multiple payroll providers saves time and money and reduces the chance for errors.
Jeremiah Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

SilkRoad Performance

  • I feel it set us back a bit, and also caused us to lose credibility with our management team after it turned out to be a "failed experiment."
  • We have gone back to a manual system of doing goal setting that works better for us.
