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.

Zoho People

Zoho People is very well suited to larger companies or companies that are working partly or exclusively online. It can take the place of your time-tracking systems which is a cost and time-saver since all information is in one, integrated place. If you have an HR team that prefers old-school paper tracking or if you have a smaller team this may not be a necessary system for you.

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.
Jeremiah Miller | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho People

  • We have had some trouble recently with getting new users set up. However, the support team at Zoho has been really responsive and helpful, so that's nice.

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.
Stacie Alexander, SPHR | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zoho People

Zoho People is a unique platform because it is fast and reliable.Moreover, Zoho People distinguishes itself from other tools because of its amazing security features. It does not expose our employees' data to other people. Moreover, Zoho People is easy to customize because its features are easy to understand.

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

Zoho People

  • Reduces the need for additional systems like time-tracking, excess excel spreadsheets and even HR training itself with their training resources
  • Streamlines assessment of data and categorizes leave, on-boarding and other data logically which decreases time spent searching and separating
  • Customization of forms and surveys is extremely useful and saves effort looking elsewhere for templates
