We use Ascentis in the HR department as well for our employees (as a timekeeping system).
  • Ascentis helps out when I don't understand something with the system and need help figuring it out.
  • They are good at responding back.
  • I like the Ascentis community. It has a lot of useful information for its users.
  • I think the time responding back could be a lot quicker than it has been.
I like Ascentis. Once you get used to using it, it is fairly easy.

  • I think the employees like this system. It is fairly easy to use.

The timing in responding back.
Ascentis
I am still learning even though it has been two years. However, with all the updates and so many different programs, there is so much to learn. I do like being able to build reports in the system.
63
The employees use the system to clock in and out.
We contact Ascentis support if we have any problems.
  • Reports
  • Time system
  • HR administration
  • Payroll
  • Taxes
  • Creating reports the way we would like them created
  • New graph chart
  • Being about to access information without logging into the admin side
  • To create reviews for managers and employees
I like the ease of using this software. If the response time was a little quicker, I would definitely give them a 10.
Yes

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
No, this was in process when I was hired.
  • Implemented in-house
Change management was a major issue with the implementation
My boss handled everything. I was handed down information about everything from her.
  • Timekeeping system not working properly
  • Errors when logging in
The support team was helpful making sure my boss knew or understood so that she could in turn teach me.
  • Online training
The support team did good passing training information along so that we could understand what we were doing. Also, the community was also a good place to go to to learn new things.
There are somethings that I have had to learn on my own, which was not a problem. For example: the report, I had how to make myself comfortable creating them how I needed to create them to meet whatever need I needed at time.
Just right
Not Sure
No
They always provided exceptional support to my boss.
  • Logging in and out
  • Accessing employees' information
  • In the beginning, creating the reports
Yes, but I don't use it
I am slowly getting use to this system and it is fairly easy to use.
They normally give you notice when an update will affect the use of the system. Otherwise, when we have an error , we send a message to the support team. Sometimes someone will get right back with you and sometimes it takes a while.
Yes, this pages do load pretty good but there are times when things are slow and I believe that's because they are sometimes trying to do updates.
I did not personally work with the vendor during the sales process but my boss informed me about how happy she was with the salesperson and how helpful and smooth the transaction went.
After the deal was closed, they still kept in contact to make sure that things were going the way they should.
