Likelihood to Recommend

Sage

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.

No, we just had a bad experience unfortunately.

Pros

Sage

  • 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

  • Training manuals are not much useful. You always need a helping hand to move forward.
  • When you have to look up employees, we have to provide their job title which I feel is not an efficient way.

SilkRoad

  • 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.

      Sage

      We moved to Sage People from a 20+-year-old internally developed HR software. We also evaluated other HR software such as Kronos, SAP, and BambooHR. Ultimately, we chose Sage because of the extensive support they provided to us and the ability to customize to fit our organization's needs. We loved the fact that they were completely cloud-based and built on a reputable platform (Salesforce).

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

      Return on Investment

      Sage

      • Has significantly improved our team resources by having one system and set of processes, rather than managing duplicate entry in multiple systems
      • Has allowed us to finally have a process for ensuring we can approve, manage, track and report employee PTO liability in one system
      • Improved HR Data reporting and Data Analytics for both HR and for managers, so that we can make better people and business decisions
      • Better manager and employee experiences by eliminating paper based request forms and automating workflows

      SilkRoad

      • 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.
